Modular flooring can be made from soft or rigid PVC plastic of polypropylene plastic material. Some tiles feature a solid top in various patterns such as flat or smooth, diamond surface or coin top texture. Some tiles are perforated for wet areas that will allow water to drain below. Some modular tiles are manufactured to accept a vinyl top tile or a carpet top tile for a unique look and feel.
Modular floor tiles can be produced in a variety of colors from colorant materials that are added to virgin or recycled plastic material content materials. Modular floor tiles can be installed by home owners or professional installers. Tiles can cut to fit using a table saw for rigid materials or a sharp utility knife for more supple material options.
Modular flooring tiles are popular as garage floors, basement floors, entrance ways, warehouse flooring, sports floors, trade show flooring and outdoors on patios, decks and rooftops. Modular flooring options tend be portable as the tiles can taken apart and reinstalled as needed. Modular floor tiles can be recycled at the end of their useful life cycle. Some modular floor tiles are manufactured from recycled plastic content and contribute to LEED points and can be considered a Green product.
