- Change up your room’s color scheme for an upcoming business, school, or athletic club special event.
Installing and Removing Modular Plastic TilesEach tile measures 12-1/8 by 12-1/8 inches, so they’re conveniently sized and easy to carry. This size also works well for garages, allowing you to easily get into smaller areas while still creating an attractive overall appearance.
To install these tiles, you’ll want to start in a corner and work your way out. The tiles feature female loops on two sides and male pegs on the other two sides. Line each tile up so that the loops point in the direction where the next tile will go. Set the peg of one tile over the loop of the other, then tap or step on them to connect them. Connecting the tiles requires almost no force, and the sections will continue to create a tight fit no matter how many times you connect and disconnect them.
If needed, you can cut these tiles to fit your walls and other objects in your path. Use a power saw to cut through the tiles, or use a utility knife and a straight edge to score the tile before snapping it apart.
In addition to performing a wall-to-wall installation, you can also create an island installation. The tiles come with edge pieces, so you can create a clean, finished edge all around your island installation. Since the tiles are raised a bit, the border piece are ramped for a safer transition on and off the garage floor tile system.
Removing the tiles is as easy as disconnecting the edges. If you know that you’ll be reinstalling the tiles soon, consider leaving larger sections of tiles connected to save time when you reinstall them.
