Foam Flooring Tiles
Tiles are a very convenient method of flooring installations. Tiles will interlock with other tiles to form larger areas. Most of our foam tiles come with border strips attached that make for a convenient way to make any tile into a border tile, a corner tile or a center tile. The tiles are easy to ship and to carry if needed, or to pack up and re-transport. Interlocking foam floor tiles make for a great DIY home flooring project that is easy and fast.

Foam flooring is excellent for basement floors. It can turn any hard flat surface into a safe and comfortable area. Foam floor tiles can lay directly on concrete. They provide fatigue-relief as well as some insulative qualities. To accommodate furniture, we recommend using plastic coasters under the legs as heavy couches and chairs can leave indentations in foam material.

The hardness of foam flooring is measured in a degree of Shore C. This specifies how hard or soft the foam floor tiles feel to the touch. We measure the hardness of foam flooring with a hardness measurement tool. Our standard 2x2 foot x 5/8 inch tiles have a hardness measurement of 30 to 35 degrees. Our most ''hard'' floor tiles feature a hardness of 60-65 degrees Shore C.
Density is different than hardness. Density is a measurement of material mass and is a relationship of cubic meters or cubic feet in comparison to weight. For example: 130kg/m3 means 130 kilograms per cubic meter. Density specifies the amount of material to air ratio within a particular floor tile, while hardness is how hard the flooring will feel. The relationship between ''hardness'' and ''density'' is important because this can relate to the quality of the foam flooring.
Foam floor tiles range from 1x1 foot and 2x2 foot tiles up to 1x1 meter foam floor squares. As a general statement, our larger tiles are designed for larger commercial installations and our smaller 2x2 foot foam flooring tiles are designed to accommodate residential applications. 2x2 foot foam mats can ship via ground service to your door via UPS or FedEx. 1x1 meter tiles will always ship on a pallet via freight delivery service.
Foam flooring will act as insulation similar to carpeting on top of concrete or wood. This is a good thing when covering a cold basement floor as the foam will feel as warm as the room temperature. For floors with in-floor heat the tiles will not inhibit the heat from migrating up into the room. The R value of foam is minimal and can be used on top of concrete with in floor heating.
Installation of foam flooring is quick and easy. Simply lay out the tiles and interlock them together. In a wall-to-wall installation, you can easily cut the foam floor tiles to fit using a sharp utility knife. You may wish to lay a board below the foam when cutting in order to not damage the floor below. If the tiles start to fray when cutting, then its time to change your blade.
