Are you wondering what the best greenhouse flooring and mats are? 

If you are going to build a greenhouse, the flooring is one of the more important aspects to consider. It must allow for proper temperature, drainage, heat insulation, and protection from weeds and pests. It must also be suitable for anything from radiant to solar heat, and it should be easy to clean and maintain. 

Where material like concrete, gravel, rock, and cement will all work as greenhouse flooring, other flooring solutions like decking tiles, plastic tiles, and even rubber will also provide a number of benefits. Greatmats offers greenhouse flooring ideas that will enhance the look, feel, and performance of your greenhouse space. 

Best Matting for Commercial Greenhouses

Our top choice for greenhouse flooring is Vynagrip Industrial Matting as it is impermeable to mold, algae, oils, and other chemicals while the open grid construction allows for water drainage. This is a heavy-duty matting that will last for many years, making it our choice for commercial greenhouses, nurseries, arboretums, and botanic gardens.

Installation is very easy as the mats can be rolled out and loosely laid, requiring no tools or adhesive. Just roll them back up when you want to deep clean the floor underneath. Available in sizes of 2x33, 3x33, and 4x33 feet.
