Let's take a look at what you need in quality motorcycle mats, as well as some of the Greatmats products that may be right for you.
Qualities to Look for In Motorcycle FlooringYour motorcycle mats need to offer a number of particular qualities in order to be a quality investment. Look for the following features in any flooring option that you consider.
TractionAdequate traction is a must-have for any motorcycle garage pad. Not only is traction important to your safety as you work in the space, but it also provides valuable grip when you need to move the motorcycle about. You'll find that motorcycle parking mats are available with a wide variety of surface designs which offer different traction options.
AestheticsYou'll also want to consider the overall appearance that you want your finished space to have. If you're creating a motorcycle showroom or other storage space where you can display your motorcycle, then you'll find plenty of eye-catching flooring options available. For a workspace where you'll be performing maintenance, a darker colored mat may be ideal, since it will help to conceal dirt and stains.
StrengthAs you shop for motorcycle floor pads, keep in mind the strength of each product that you're considering. Motorcycles can be quite heavy, and some flooring may not be strong enough to support the weight of the vehicles long-term. Look for a product that is rated to support significant weight for the best results.
Installation MethodYou'll find that, depending on the motorcycle floor pad that you're considering, different installation methods may be required. Many tiles can be easily cut to fit for a wall-to-wall installation. Think about the installation method that you would most prefer. Are you looking for tiles that interlock together, and that can be removed again in the future? Can you accommodate a glue-down long-term installation?
Water, Oil, and Chemical ResistanceIf you're looking for a motorcycle floor pad to create a space where you can work on your motorcycle, then you'll likely need a product that is resistant to water, oil, and chemicals. These elements can degrade some types of flooring, such as rubber, so a resistant flooring is a must if you'll be performing any sort of maintenance on your motorcycle.
ComfortIf you have plans of using your space both to store and to work on your motorcycle, then you'll want a flooring product that is comfortable. Many of our products offer shock absorption, and some offer anti-fatigue properties, too.
DurabilityWhen considering your options for motorcycle mats, make sure that you choose a product that is durable. At Greatmats, we offer many quality mat options that are backed by long warranties and that are designed to last.
BudgetTake some time to think about your budget for the project. Many of these tiles require no professional installation, which can save you money and allow you to purchase a higher quality product than you might otherwise be able to afford. At Greatmats, we offer mats and tiles at a variety of price points, so chances are we'll have a product that can accommodate your budget.
The right product will partially depend on your intended use and what you're looking for in terms of style, installation method, and more.
