Polyvinyl Chloride Floor Tiles - Flexible Plastic Flooring

PVC, short for polyvinyl chloride, provides cushioning and traction for people walking on it. PVC flooring from Greatmats is available in many different colors and surface textures, ensuring that the product matches the planned use case at a great price.

Size and Shape Options

Customers can select PVC in a couple of different configurations, including as a PVC tile or a sheet roll.

With PVC flooring, using tiles that interlock is the most common configuration. Small tiles measuring anywhere from 12 by 12 inches to 20 by 20 inches are easy to handle, and the interlocking edges hold the tiles tightly together. Rectangular tiles are available as well, usually measuring 10 by 20 inches.

When seeking to create mats for use at the entrance to a building, installers can connect some of these PVC tiles to create the ideal size of an entrance mat.

Rolls of PVC are also available for installers who need to cover a large space in a short amount of time. These rolls work well in areas where people need to stand in a line, providing cushioning, or where people will be walking around the edges of a swimming pool.

Some of these rolls include pre-printed lines on them that help people waiting in a line to stand far enough apart to maintain social distancing requirements.

Material Options

PVC is an interesting material for use as flooring because it has a grippy surface that reduces the potential for slips for those walking on it.

PVC also has a little bit of cushioning, which makes it the ideal material to place over the top of an especially hard surface, such as cement around a pool.

Pattern and Texture Options

With PVC flooring, customers have hundreds of different combinations of colors and textures to pick from, simplifying the process of finding just the right product for the expected usage.

For colors, customers can pick basic black in areas where a neutral color is important. However, to create a floor that has an eye-catching vibrancy, look for colors like blue, dark gray, light gray, green, terra cotta, tan, white, and yellow.

Some PVC tiles also contain patterns that resemble different kinds of stone flooring, using a multitude of different shades of color that make these tiles look like the real thing.

Textures for PVC flooring tiles are also available in a number of different configurations. Select among a coin top pattern, a diamond top pattern, or a pattern that resembles leather. For extra traction, select a PVC tile that has a gritty surface material added to the top.

In areas where slippery substances are possible, PVC tiles that have small cleats across the top provide extra traction.

Some of these tiles make use of perforations to allow water and other liquids to drain through to the subfloor. This is an interesting option around a pool, as the perforations allow splashed water to drain away rather than pooling on top of the PVC.

Common Use Options

The versatility found with these products also applies to the number of areas where people can install PVC flooring. PVC works at a home for things like basement flooring, playroom flooring, garage flooring, or flooring around a pool. Installers can even place some models over carpet.

For commercial or retail locations, PVC tiles will appear in locker rooms or around hot tubs at an athletic facility or in a hotel, reducing the potential for slip-and-fall accidents.

In a supply warehouse, a manufacturing facility, or a factory where moisture is a common problem, using PVC tiles and rolls will provide a safer space for workers to walk with a reduced chance of slipping.

Installation Options

Installation is extremely easy for those who choose to use PVC rolls or tiles. With a roll of PVC, the installer can simply lay out the roll wherever needed, creating a safer space for walking or standing. Installers do not need to use adhesive.

There is also no need to use adhesive with the interlocking PVC tile design. These tiles use tab and loop designs on the edges of them, ensuring that they pop together quickly. Because there is no need to use glue, just pull the tiles apart whenever needed.

Cleaning and Maintenance Requirements

Because PVC will stand up to water without soaking it up, cleaning these tiles is an easy process. Sweep or vacuum the tiles to remove dry debris, or rinse the tiles with a garden hose and a sprayer in areas with a floor drain or outdoor locations.

For tiles that have stains or removable substances on them, it is possible to mop the PVC floors using a mixture of warm water and a neutral pH cleaner. After mopping the floors, just allow them to air dry over time.
