How to Install Gym, Aerobic & Anti-Fatigue Flooring Tiles Over Carpet

The installation process does not change whether installing over concrete or carpeting, however, additional cushioning is present when installed over carpeting. The sturdy PVC tiles connect tightly together. No tools are required for most installations. For custom wall-to-wall installations, you'll want a tape measure, straight edge, pen and sharp utility knife.

Start in a corner with the loop sides of the tile facing out, and work your way out evenly from the corner. Keep all tiles facing the same direction. Press tab connectors down over loops of the already laid tiles until the new tiles lock into place.

When partial tiles are needed, measure the distance from the remaining wall to the installed tiles and mark that distance on the tile you'll be cutting.

Place cut tiles flush in place, and your installation is complete.

Ramped border pieces are sold separately in both black or yellow options. Border ramps connect in the same fashion as the tiles, but keep in mind tab sides will require a different border strip than loop sides. Corner border ramps have both the tab and the loop connection.
