Video Tutorial for Installing Portable Outdoor Tiles

Portable Outdoor Flooring Just Got a Whole Lot Easier

Greatmats are excellent for temporary outdoor flooring of all kinds, including commercial tent flooring and temporary sidewalks. Made of durable plastic, the tiles snap together over virtually any surface including concrete, dirt, grass or gravel to create a fast draining anti-slip surface.

No tools are necessary for installation, but you may want to keep some plywood on hand if installing over soft or uneven surfaces. These tiles come in sheets of pre-assembled 3x3 tile sections for fast installation.

Begin in a corner, keeping both sides with rod connectors facing outward. Keeping the next sheet of tiles facing in the same direction, place the tab edges of the new tiles over the rod connectors of the already laid tiles.

Step on each of the tabs until they snap over the rods. Continue adding tile sections working out from the corner until you’ve reached your desired size.

If you have difficulty getting the tabs to snap into place, slide a sheet of plywood under the desired connection area to create a firmer subsurface. The plywood can be removed once the tiles are connected and re-used again in other tough to connect areas - or left in place to add stability to the subsurface.

When installing over grass, it’s best to install over freshly mowed areas to maintain contact with the ground and avoid having the grass poke through seams and drainage holes.

Once you’re finished, the tiles can be easily removed in those same 3x3 foot sections or individual tiles if desired.
