Kinds of Plastic
As you explore plastic floor options, you'll find that plastic floor tiles are made of different kinds of plastics.
- Rigid polypropylene (PP) makes hard, snap together plastic floor tiles.
- Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) material yields a softer and quieter floor tile which often offers anti-fatigue benefits.
- Polyethylene (PE) is used to make our grass protection mats with no break qualities.
Plastic flooring tends to be very durable and long lasting. It does not degrade or break down over time, which makes it an excellent investment if you're looking for a long-lasting flooring option. Most plastic flooring tiles are resistant to oils and acids, and some offer ultraviolet (UV) resistance for outdoor use. In many cases, plastic flooring can provide cushion similar to foam and durability much like rubber while remaining lightweight.
Plastic floor tiles are popular for areas where other, more traditional, flooring materials are not suitable. Soft and rigid plastic floors each have their own unique advantages. Most tiles are designed to snap together or interlock without the use of adhesive, making them great for a do-it-yourself (DIY) flooring project. Many raised modular tiles can be installed over carpeting, grass or wet surfaces, since their construction allows for air and water to circulate freely through their bases.
Plastic tiles offer the following benefits:
- Versatile - plastic flooring is available in soft and rigid forms
- Interlocking tiles often snap together without the need for adhesive, for easy installation
- Durable, long-lasting flooring makes for a great investment
- Resistant to oils and acids; some flooring is UV resistant
- Raised modular tiles can be installed over carpeting, grass, or wet surfaces where other flooring cannot be used
In short, plastic floor tiles are highly versatile and are suitable for a wide range of applications.
Hard Versus Soft Plastic Flooring
Plastic tiles are made of either hard or soft plastic and are designed for many outdoor, garage and wet area applications. Soft plastic squares are most often a modular flooring for ergonomic, cushion, athletic and potentially wet outdoor areas. Hard or rigid plastic flooring tiles are made of polypropylene material and are used as modular snap together tiles in garage flooring, portable flooring, trade shows and outdoor tent flooring.
Rigid polypropylene plastic tiles are highly durable and are strong enough to support large weight loads. They are ideal for use in garage and automotive floors, and the tiles are resistant to chemicals and solvents. The strong no-break tile material can handle the load of heavy vehicles, including cars, trucks, and sometimes even forklifts. The great durability of these tiles also makes them a popular choice for outdoor sports flooring, such as for an outdoor basketball court.
These plastic floor tiles feature a snap-together interlocking design which allows for easy installation without the need for adhesive. Tiles often feature a raised base which allows you to install them in areas where condensation and moisture may be an issue, such as in garages or basements. The raised base allows for airflow beneath the tile, helping to prevent the growth of mold or mildew. Moisture doesn't become trapped underneath the finished flooring surface, so you don't need to worry about pulling the flooring up if it gets wet.
Choose polypropylene plastic tiles for the following applications:
- Areas where moisture may be an issue, such as garages and basements
- Floors which will support heavy loads, such as garage floors or warehouse floors
- Sports flooring
Polyvinyl Chloride Flooring
PVC tiles usually make for a more comfortable surface, and a quieter floor in general. If you're looking for the best ergonomic and anti-fatigue benefits, opt for a PVC tile that features a raised bottom. These tiles, such as the Staylock floor tiles, are often used in ergonomic industrial standing work station environments. Flat-bottomed PVC tiles are most common in warehouse settings. Our Hiddenlock tiles offer an upscale hidden locking design and are some of our most popular flat bottomed locking tiles.
These plastic tiles are so flexible that there are often confused with rubber tiles. In many cases, PVC plastic tiles actually provide significantly more cushion than rubber.
Choose PVC tiles for the following applications:
- Warehouse flooring
- Garage flooring
- Industrial flooring
- Entranceway flooring
- Playground flooring
- Outdoor play surfaces
- Home gyms
- Work stations
Raised Plastic Flooring
One of the common issues that homeowners encounter when choosing a flooring is that they're working in an area where moisture and condensation may be an issue. Traditional flooring will trap moisture beneath, leading to the formation of mold and mildew if the flooring isn't pulled up to dry. But raised plastic flooring solves that problem.
If you're working in an area where moisture is present, such as in a basement or garage, consider our Max Tile or Staylock Tiles. Both of these plastic floor tiles feature a raised under structure which will allow air and water to flow beneath the tiles. Since air and moisture can circulate, the design helps to prevent mold and mildew growth. These floor tiles can be installed directly over the concrete, for basements that are potentially damp. We do not recommend an underlayment.
Plastic floor tiles are useful for a variety of applications. The type of flooring you choose should depend on your particular needs. Our modular floor tiles are available in popular colors that allow for creative designs. Use the online floor plan designer to easily create complex room layouts, choose product colors and determine quantities needed.
We also offer numerous other forms of raised plastic tiles for outdoor, industrial, athletic or wet areas.
Plastic Athletic Flooring
If you need a versatile flooring option for your home gym or commercial facility, consider a plastic floor mat or plastic tiles. The best plastic flooring option for gym floors is a raised PVC floor tile. These tiles offer cushion and support for jumping and aerobic activities, and are stable for use under exercise equipment. The tiles will support workout equipment, and you don't have to worry about them getting indentations from the weight, which is a common issue with foam tiles.
PVC will provide more cushion for aerobic activities than rubber flooring tiles or rolls. Think of these PVC raised tiles as an in-between type material compared to softer foam tiles and harder rubber flooring tiles.
Plastic Garage Flooring
When considering plastic flooring options for your garage, you have two main choices: Rigid plastic snap-together tiles, or a softer PVC tile.
The rigid plastic tiles feature a raised bottom structure which allows for air and water flow and are available in various top designs including perforated versions.
PVC floor tiles tend to be flat bottomed and offer a quieter and softer floor for human traffic and tool work. Some PVC tiles should be sealed to prevent staining from high end automotive tires. If you want to avoid sealing your tiles, you can also use black tiles in the areas where a vehicle is parked.
Plastic Outdoor Flooring
When choosing plastic flooring for use around pool areas, in playgrounds, or for other outside applications, we recommend a perforated tile such as our StayLock Perforated or Patio Outdoor Tile. These tiles are designed to allow water to drain beneath the tiles. This specialized design means that the top surface will dry more quickly after rain, helping to avoid standing water and meaning that you can use the surface again more quickly. Perforated tiles also tend to stay much cooler than those without perforations, which means less chance of tile expansion. Greatmats PVC floor tiles in perforated versions feature UV protection for up to 7 years for exterior use on rooftops, patios, decks and playgrounds.
Additional outdoor tiles include artificial grass tiles, ground protection mats, and tent floor decking tiles for outdoor temporary events. These plastic floor mats for home and commercial use are waterproof and uniquely suited for outdoor temporary and portable installations.
Rolled vinyl flooring is a popular option for commercial plastic flooring. These floors can be made of recycled content and do a great job of hiding grit or scuffs. They are easy to clean and sanitize, making them great for health care facilities as well as lobbies, showrooms, fashion show floors, stage floors, and office environments. Vinyl rolls are most often glued down and heat welded at the seams, but some can be temporarily installed using a tape-down method.
