Rubber Deck Tiles
Patio tiles from Greatmats make use of a variety of colors, materials, and designs, simplifying the process of finding the right product for any use case. Rely on Greatmats to deliver rubber patio deck tiles that focus on both performance and looks. Our products are portable, easy to install, comfortable, and colorful. They have cushioning that provides a little bit of fall protection. These tiles are configured to allow for proper water drainage too.
We offer our patio paver tiles in several different shapes, sizes, thickness measurements, and weights. With multiple choices available, customers can complete any kind of project in a short amount of time.
An advantage of using rubber deck flooring from Greatmats is that the tiles consist of recycled rubber, making them an eco-friendly choice. The rubber material in our flooring delivers interlocking rubber decking that don’t require regular maintenance. In fact, this type of rubber flooring for exterior patios is made to be installed and then left alone. In areas that experience freezing temperatures, our rubber deck tiles will not crack. Full sun exposure doesn’t affect this material either, as it has built-in UV exposure protection. Our rubber tiles maintain a higher level of temperature stability versus brick or concrete surfaces. Sweep or scrub the tiles as needed for cleaning.
Outdoor rubber deck tiles consist of only the highest quality of rubber materials, as they’re made in the United States. Tiles from Greatmats provide a high level of performance, often outperforming Helios deck tiles and rubber deck tiles Costco offers.
Outdoor Rubber Decking
For families with small children, outdoor interlocking rubber tiles are a smart addition to any hard patio surface. These tiles will offer fall protection, creating a softer landing area than concrete or wood. With the right fall height rating in the rubber patio tiles, people who inadvertently trip and fall on the patio will reduce the possibility of serious head injuries. Thicker Interlocking Playground Tiles deliver a greater fall height rating than thinner tiles. Certain types of rubber flooring include an anti-slip traction on the surface to help prevent falls.
Greatmats also offers styles of rubber deck tiles that are made for roof-style patios. Although most of our customers install our cushioned rubber tiles on a solid concrete or brick patio area, these pieces are made to work when installed over roofing membranes too. Our patio pavers do not require any adhesive, which makes them a perfect option for roof membranes. Tiles installed on a roof that damage the membrane could cause water drainage problems, which makes choosing a safe type of roof patio tile extremely important. Before performing the installation on a roof patio, be certain the membrane can support the weight of the tiles. Our thinnest patio pavers weigh as much as 19 pounds.
Rubber Deck Tiles Construction
Count on Greatmats to deliver only tiles that have a high level of longevity. Each of our rubber products has a warranty of at least 5 years, ensuring excellent performance and value over time. Thicker patio tiles, which also may be used on a playground, may carry a warranty up to 10 years in length.
Dog Bone Outdoor Paver tiles provide another option for use with a patio installation. This model’s shape looks a bit like a dog bone. These tiles are easy to install, as they lay out like bricks. As a further advantage, our paver style tiles often provide a limited lifetime warranty.
Sterling rubber interlocking patio tiles give customers another potential choice for a patio flooring installation. This style of rubber deck tiles may have a 1.25- or 2-inch thickness measurement, meaning the tiles work on both a traditional ground-level patio and a rooftop patio. Interlocking styles of tiles will remain tightly in place, even when placed under stress. Many of these tiles ship with a limited lifetime warranty.
Rubber Patio Tiles
Some of our customers choose to install plastic tiles over rubber decking. For those who would like to have a more formal look than a rubber surface, Greatmats offers plastic tiles that look like wood flooring, slate tiles, or natural grass.
We offer a variety of plastic tiles that fit over existing rubber tile flooring. These plastic tiles usually will snap together during installation, which ensures a secure fit. However, some tile choices have a straight edge and don’t interlock.
Some of our customers live in areas that are subject to heavy rainfall. For those who want to install tiles over the top of the rubber deck tiles in exceedingly wet areas, we suggest using perforated PVC tiles. These interlocking PVC tiles have small holes in the surface of the tiles, allowing water to pass through the tile, rather than pooling on the surface. The PVC tiles have a slightly raised base too, which encourages the proper draining of rainwater and which allows airflow to dry the water more quickly. This results in a lower chance of mold or mildew forming in the area.
The PVC tiles have a flexible material that also has a little bit of cushioning in case of a fall. To reduce the possibility of tripping, consider installing border strips on the PVC tiles to create a smooth transition.
Outdoor Interlocking Rubber Tiles
One of our most popular options is the StayLock perforated tile. It’s a PVC tile that includes a perforated surface to prevent water from pooling on the surface of the flooring. The PVC feels soft and has just a bit of give to it for comfort. The tiles fit tightly together with an interlocking design.
Versus some other PVC tile brands, the StayLock brand of tile works nicely for installation on any type of surface. Customers do not need a sub-floor to install these PVC rubber decking tiles. With the interlocking design in the StayLock tiles, they will stay in place, even when placed under stress. They feature a long-lasting design with a 5-year limited warranty.
For PVC tiles around pool and hot tub areas, consider our Patio Outdoor Tile, which has a perforated surface that’s also textured to prevent slipping. The PVC materials in these rubber decking tiles have UV stability built into them, ensuring they’ll look great over time. Our perforated PVC tiles are not limited to installation over patio areas. Unlike rubber deck tiles, these plastic tiles work nicely for sports courts. Outdoor tennis, basketball, and volleyball courts will give players a stable surface after installing these tiles over an existing cement or asphalt area.
Interlocking Composite Deck Tiles
We also offer foam patio tiles. These materials are extremely comfortable underfoot, providing many different color and design choices. Foam tiles don’t weigh much, which simplifies installation, and they often consist of recycled materials.
Residential users really like outdoor foam patio tiles from Greatmats. After installation, our customers end up with a deck area that looks great but that also yields a safe surface where kids can play. Foam provides a nice cushioning in case of a fall, but it also has a bit of texture on the surface of the tile to prevent inadvertent slips. Each of these tiles will provide years of excellent performance.
Foam flooring works nicely around hot tubs and pools too. One of our most popular models is the Life Floor Foam Tiles brand. With this model of tile, customers receive a soft material that maintains a stable surface temperature, even when exposed to constant sunlight. Should someone trip and fall around these tiles, they’ll receive a bit of cushioning, which is a smart idea in areas around pools, where children may be running. We offer many different texture styles with the tiles, including a wood grain, a slate finish, or ripples. Multiple color choices are available too, including vibrant colors and several earth tones.
Roof Rubber Decking
Installing rubber deck tiles in a flat rooftop area instantly creates a usable outdoor space where friends and family can gather safely. Because our rubber tiles will work nicely when installed directly over rooftop membranes, they’re a perfect choice in this type of situation. No other material or underlayment must be installed over the roof membrane before laying out the rubber deck tiles. No adhesive is required either, as the rubber deck contains a floating system to keep it in place after installation. This material works easily as a DIY installation.
