Truth is, there are countless potential applications for outdoor flooring. At Greatmats, we offer a variety of outdoor flooring to accommodate any use. Choose from different options, including plastic, rubber, carpet, and faux grass tiles.
Weather-resistant outdoor flooring is specifically constructed so that it doesn't become brittle in extreme cold, and it won't melt under the heat of direct sunlight. Most outdoor flooring is designed to direct water away from its surface, or to allow water to flow through a perforated surface. Outdoor flooring is designed to create a safe, attractive finish, no matter what the weather or temperature.
While many outdoor flooring options are intended to be permanent and long-lasting, temporary outdoor flooring may be the perfect solution for you. If you're looking to add a playground or patio just for the season, our temporary outdoor flooring is versatile and can be removed when you're done using the space.
With so many different outdoor flooring options, you will need to consider the following:
1. How much direct sunlight will there be?
2. How drastic will temperature changes be?
3. How often do you get rain, snow, hail, sleet, etc.?
4. Who will be using this surface, and how often?
5. Will there be falls?
6. Do you get a lot of wind?
7. How easy is the flooring to clean?
8. What's the flooring's longevity?
9. How easy is it to repair/replace the flooring?
10. Is a temporary outdoor flooring option the right solution for your needs?
Read on to learn about some of the more common types of outdoor flooring.
Rubber Outdoor Flooring
Rubber outdoor flooring is a versatile, safe surface. Outdoor rubber tiles are popular options for patios, play areas and walkways. These tiles have a non-slip surface (even when they're wet), and they're flexible enough to help absorb shock. Outdoor rubber tiles make for areas which are comfortable for standing, sitting and playing. If you're creating a play area for kids, rubber tiles may be the perfect option, since many of them boast fall-height ratings and can help to prevent injury.
Outdoor rubber floors are usually made from repurposed rubber, meaning there are fewer vehicle tires ending up in landfills. The rubber is typically heavy, which means it's resistant to shifting. Rubber floors are highly durable and can last for multiple decades. At the end of the rubber's useful life, the flooring can be recycled again.
Rubber flooring makes a great choice when you experience extreme temperatures and need a flooring option that can withstand the weather. The floors maintain their flexibility in sub-zero temperatures, but they also don't become too soft during the hot summer. Rubber floors maintain their original form no matter what kind of weather you experience, and they're great options when you're looking for a durable floor that will last.
Artificial grass tiles are a great choice for outdoor areas where you don't have the time for the maintenance that real grass requires. Consider artificial grass for patio areas, outdoor pet areas, and any other locations where you're looking for aesthetic appeal without time-consuming maintenance.
Artificial turf tiles and rolls are soft and natural feeling, but they're far less messy than installing real turf tiles or rolls. You'll love the fact that artificial grass requires virtually no maintenance, so you don't have to worry about mowing, watering or weeding. There's no hassle and you're free to enjoy the beautiful appearance of grass without the work.
Keeping your artificial turf looking great is a cinch. Some artificial turf can be vacuumed, but most can be simply hosed down.
When installing outdoor flooring over dirt, our artificial grass tiles are a great choice. We offer tiles with treated wood plank bases which butt up next to each other. The tiles do not need glue (though some can be glued if you should desire), and they allow water to drain through them. This means no puddling and no mess. These grass tiles are cushy and plush for excellent comfort.
You may also want to consider using outdoor artificial turf rolls for larger areas. Many of these turf rolls are intended for athletic use, but others are ideal for use with decks, patios, yards and pet areas. Designed to be durable, these turf rolls are equipped with excellent drainage so you can use the surfaces again promptly after rainfall.
Plastic Outdoor Flooring
Plastic outdoor flooring tiles are an inexpensive, versatile outdoor flooring option. These are the only backyard flooring tiles suitable for use as outdoor flooring over dirt or outdoor flooring over grass.
Plastic tiles are soft and perforated, yet are highly durable. Many of these tiles provide anti-fatigue benefits, and some can withstand the weight of furniture, cars or trucks. They're even available in designer colors so that you can create an eye-catching and attractive area around your pool.
Most of the plastic tiles offered by Greatmats feature a raised base which allows air and water to flow both through the tile's surface and underneath the tile itself. This design helps to prevent the growth of mold and mildew, while also increasing the lifespan of these durable tiles.
Perforated PVC plastic floors are totally waterproof while still providing plenty of drainage, making them ideal for swimming pools and wash areas.
Many people use plastic flooring tiles for play areas, such as under swing sets. Some of these tiles carry an ASTM fall height rating. These shock absorbing properties contribute to a safer play space for children, whether in your own backyard or for commercial use.
While plastic outdoor flooring is suitable as an outdoor flooring over dirt or outdoor flooring over grass, we recommend that you lay a landscape fabric beneath the tiles. The fabric will prevent weeds from growing up through the holes in the tiles, keeping the surface looking beautiful.
Balcony flooring tiles are a popular choice for apartments, condos and townhouses. These tiles are a temporary outdoor flooring option and can be installed without using adhesives. They are designed to easily snap together, and you can install the tiles repeatedly without damaging them. Because these tiles are portable outdoor flooring, you can bring them with you when you move.
Balcony flooring tiles make hard surfaces, like concrete, more comfortable and forgiving. Outdoor deck floor tiles are a great way to add a little color to your deck area. Best of all, these colored tiles never need to be painted, stained, or sealed, saving you both maintenance time and costs. Cleaning most deck floor tiles requires nothing more than a garden hose - it simply doesn't get any easier.
Interlocking Outdoor Flooring
Interlocking outdoor flooring tiles are an excellent choice for athletic areas. Whether you're a homeowner looking to install a surface for a small basketball court or a large commercial facility with flooring needs for multiple tennis courts, we have a solution that you'll love.
Interlocking outdoor athletic tiles are durable, and won't crack or crumble like asphalt does. These tiles flex and provide some cushion for a more comfortable basketball court, roller hockey space, tennis court or other sports option.
Outdoor flooring tiles are available in both interlocking and straight edge options. Some flooring tiles can be locked together and require no adhesive. Other tiles use pins or dowels to create a strong lock.
Our outdoor court tiles are a popular interlocking option designed for years of fun. Just lock the tiles and cut them to fit if necessary. These tiles also come with a 10-year limited warranty.
Plastic outdoor floors will be much lighter weight than most other outdoor flooring varieties. These plastic floors are ideal for creating a basketball court over grass or creating any number of areas for athletic use.
If you're interested in outdoor flooring for athletic use, then be sure to see our playground surfacing page for the available options for your facility. Some of our flooring options provide Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) ramps for wheelchair access, and all provide various fall height protection as required in many cities and townships. Some of those outdoor playground tiles protect from falls of up to 10 feet, ensuring that your facility is as safe as possible.
