Plastic Flooring & Tiles
Plastic Flooring Options
When you install plastic flooring in your home or commercial facility, you receive a highly durable material that can fit many different use cases.
At Greatmats, our plastic tiles for floor installation work for either indoor or outdoor spaces. They also work as the main flooring surface, or as a high-quality underlayment.
Reasons to Use Plastic Flooring
Because many of our plastic tile options are hard and rigid, they are an ideal selection for areas where you need a sure footing. These typically are the most durable options.
You also can select PVC plastic when you need a bit more flexibility in the surface structure. In areas where cushioning is helpful to provide anti-fatigue benefits or to protect against falls, PVC is a good idea.
We even offer carpet tiles that consist of recycled plastic bottles in the fibers.
Benefits of Using Plastic Flooring Tiles

- Installation: Most of our tile products have an interlocking edge for a DIY installation.
- Underlayment: Use these tiles as an underlayment to provide a sturdy subfloor.

- Waterproof: Areas that have constant water exposure benefit from these waterproof plastic tile pieces.
- Anti-slip texture: Many of the tiles have a textured surface including a bubble top or diamond tread pattern to provide a sure footing.
- Easy to clean: Sweep or vacuum the tiles to remove dry debris and then mop them for a more thorough cleaning.

Plastic Flooring Q&A
How do polypropylene flooring, and PVC floor tiles differ?
The differences in plastic flooring typically involve choosing among:
- PVC flooring that is extremely flexible.
- Polypropylene flooring that is rigid and extremely durable.
Matching the right material to the planned use case is key, and the Greatmats customer service team can help.
What makes plastic interlocking floor tiles good for basements?
Plastic flooring for basements is an ideal option because of its moisture resistance. Whether you select a flat tile base or a raised tile base with a vinyl or carpet top, plastic flooring works great in a basement where moisture regularly seeps through the foundation.
How do you tile a garage floor with plastic flooring tiles?
Commonly, you’ll use Polypropylene Plastic tiles to create an interlocking garage floor. These tiles snap together to create a finished layout that looks amazing and offers significant durability.
How can you build an indoor volleyball or basketball court with interlocking plastic tiles?
To create a sports court with plastic tiles, measure the space you want to cover. Our 1x1 foot flat top tiles are sturdy enough for sports like basketball and volleyball. Because they cover 1 square foot each, it’s easy to calculate the number of tiles you need. Just pop them together over the top of the subfloor. Paint lines on them as needed. You may want to add a rubber underlayment, if desired.
