Outdoor Wet Area Tiles

Outdoor Deck Tiles for Wet Areas

Outdoor Patio and Deck Tiles

StayLock Perforated outdoor tiles offer exterior surface options for wet areas such as patios, spas, pool surrounds, greenhouses and decks. They are easily installed, easy to maintain, and are exterior 5-year UV-rated.

Greatmats outdoor tiles feature a non-slip perforated top surface that provides great water drainage on any flat surface. The PVC outdoor wet area tiles have a slightly raised base too, which allows airflow to dry the water more quickly. This results in a lower chance of mold or mildew forming in the area. The PVC feels soft and has just a bit of give to it, featuring an ASTM fall height rating of 20 inches.

They are 1 x1 feet, and made in the USA of durable plastic material, providing foot traction and comfort to bare feet on exterior surfaces. These PVC outdoor tiles are durable enough to hold tables, lawn furniture, and lawn chairs with feet larger than about 1.5 inches in diameter.

 

Pool and Spa Applications

When you’re looking for outdoor flooring installation options, the StayLock tile offers the durability you need. These PVC deck tiles have a 7-year UV stable colorant and anti-fungal additive, ensuring that these tiles work especially well for outdoor installations where they need to stand up to tough weather and varying temperatures. Additionally, the tiles have a 5-year manufacturer warranty with them.

And even when the surface of the tiles is wet, it remains slip-resistant, unlike cement. The tiles yield a safer area for your children to walk or run around the pool.

Should you have French drains around your pool, or areas where the cement surface slopes slightly to allow for drainage, you can install the StayLock Perforated tiles directly over these areas, and their shape will slowly conform to the slopes. This product also works great for areas around hot tubs and spas, because the tiles are non-absorbent.

Patio and Deck

If you have a deck that looks worn out from splinters and old wood, the StayLock Perforated tiles can give the deck a fresh and new look that’s safe to use. Simply installing the new tiles directly over the old wood will provide a fast means of fixing the problem of a worn out deck with far less effort and cost versus sanding and staining.

Campsite and Other Outdoor Areas

Another potential application use is for camping areas. You can take a few dozen of these tiles with you to a campsite and create a makeshift patio right outside your camper door. Using these tiles in this manner means people will track less dirt and grass into the camper, as the tile surface will provide a place to clean your feet. Should it rain while you’re camping, the makeshift tile patio is perfect for keeping mud out of the camper and giving people a dry place to stand or sit. The perforated design of the tiles allows rainwater to drain through the tiles, keeping the top free from mud.

You could install the PVC deck tiles anywhere outdoors that you want to provide traction over a wet area. Some people have reported success installing these tiles around a children’s swing set or around other areas where children play. The plastic tiles yield a softer landing if a child falls, and because the tiles can be installed over dirt or grass, they can prevent running children from slipping on wet grass or in mud. When installing the tiles over sand or dirt, we recommend placing a landscape fabric mesh material over the ground before placing the PVC decking tiles.

Installation Tips

StayLock perforated non-slip floor tile is easy to install with our tab locking system, which ensures the tiles won’t separate over time and provides a long lasting wet area floor. A sub-floor is not needed. A hard, flat surface is recommended for installation, but the tiles will conform over time to match the contours of a slightly uneven surface.

If installing these tiles against a wall or another large object, we recommend leaving a 1/2-inch gap between the PVC deck tiles and the object to allow for expansion of the tiles in the heat. Expansion of tiles, whether they’re rubber or plastic, is normal when the tiles are installed outdoors and exposed to widely varying temperatures. Heavy furniture, table and chairs are not recommended to be permanently placed on top of these tiles. The tiles need to be able to shift as they expand and contract in changing temperatures.

Should you need to fit the PVC deck tiles around poles, doorways, or other obstacles, you can cut them with a utility knife and a straight edge.

Due to the method of interlocking these PVC decking tiles, you can easily separate, remove, or relocate them, if needed. By not using adhesives when assembling these tiles, disassembling them doesn’t take a lot of effort.

Commercial Gym Flooring

Rubber Rolls, Mats & Tiles for Gyms

Commercial Rubber Gym Flooring Rolls
Commercial Rubber Gym Floor Roll

Rubber gym matting, rolls and tiles for commercial gyms are common flooring options often made of recycled materials. The rubber is designed for gym and athletic sport surfaces that require durable, long lasting performance for commercial gym flooring.

Top 6 Benefits of Commercial Gym Flooring

  1. Durable flooring can withstand commercial applications and will last for years.
  2. Gym rubber floors come in a wide variety of thicknesses, sizes, color choices, and installation types.
  3. Rubber is one of the most affordable types of commercial gym flooring.
  4. Rubber’s sound dampening properties make the workout environment more enjoyable for everyone.
  5. Rubber is a more forgiving surface than a concrete subfloor, and athletes are sure to feel this difference.
  6. Most rubber mats, tiles and rolls are made from recycled rubber, so they’re an eco-friendly option.

Our rubber gym flooring products are suitable for both commercial, home gym floors and other large scale flooring installations such as middle schools, high schools, and college fitness centers.

Commercial Gym Floor Rolls, Mats and Tiles

Greatmats recycled rubber gym flooring is available in mats, rolls, and tiles in black and custom colors. Commercial rubber gym flooring is ideal for weight lifting floors, cardio, and cross fit training centers.

Gym Floor Tiles

For high quality tiles that are easy to install by one person over many flooring types, including short hair carpeting, consider a rubber gym floor tile. Interlocking rubber gym flooring tiles are highly versatile and come with color fleck options.

Straight edge rubber tiles can be 1 inch thick or thicker, delivering the most durable indoor option. Rubber paver tiles connect together using different interlocking systems and adhesives to create a stable surface. These puzzle style edges are popular for gym floors in 1/2 inch and 3/4 inch thicknesses.

Interlocking rubber flooring for gyms has a high density rating. It’s designed to last for years under taxing environments. Smaller interlocking rubber tiles are more manageable, especially when installing the flooring alone.To install the tiles, just line them up and push their seams together like puzzle pieces. The tiles connect securely and won’t pull apart while in use.

Gym Floor Mats

Rubber gym mats yield a versatile option that can be used in any gym. These products tend to be more affordable than an interlocking tile product of the same thickness. These mats come in a variety of different thicknesses. They’re often used in Olympic lifting areas because of the excellent shock absorption the thicker mats provide. We recommend 3/4 inch thick mats in these higher impact areas.

Rubber floor mats for gyms are both dense and heavy. A 3/4 inch thick 4×6 foot mat can weigh more than 90 pounds. Multiple people will need to help with the installation.

Rubber is the preferred free weights floor, as it will absorb shock and vibration and reduce noise from barbells dropping in racks on or the ground. Greatmats offers many rubber exercise mats new and ready for shipping.

Rubber Flooring Rolls

Commercial Gyms often use plyometric rubber rolls in areas where the workouts will include a lot of jumping. Plyometric rolled rubber is a lower density rubber. It has a little more cushion than traditional rolled rubber and is popular for use with plyometric exercises.

For weightlifting areas and gym floors that will see heavy use, we recommend 1/2 inch or 3/4 inch thick rubber gym flooring to adequately protect the subfloor. These thicker options provide better shock absorption.

Most CrossFit gyms opt for rolled rubber because it helps to absorb shock and is also highly durable. Additionally, rubber has anti fatigue properties and is slip resistant. It offers sound and thermal insulation, creating a more comfortable gym environment. The flooring is both firm and forgiving, so athletes don’t lose power during heavy lifts because the floor is too heavily cushioned.

Rolled rubber can be dry laid for simplicity. Should the installation cover more than 400 square feet, using a glue down or tape down installation is recommended.

Our rubber gym floor tile, roll, and mat products are designed to be easy to clean. It’s important to keep the rubber clean of dirt in order to preserve its lifespan. For rubber, use a neutral pH floor cleaner.
