There are plenty to select from. We have vinyl rolls, artificial turf, and carpet.

Plastic Flooring Rolls

Most rolls have ultraviolet (UV) resistance for flooring outdoor use. In many cases, they can provide cushion similar to foam with durability much like rubber, all while remaining lightweight.

Interlocked plastic tiles for floor are popular for spaces where other, more traditional materials are not suitable. They have their own unique advantages.

The majority of these are designed to snap together or interlock without the use of adhesive. This is great for a DIY project. Many can be installed over carpeting, grass, or wetter surfaces. The construction allows for circulation freely throughout and around the base.

Plastic Interlocking Tiles Benefits

  1. Versatility with models with softness or rigidity
  2. Snaps together without adhesive, simplifying installation
  3. Durable composite makes a great investment
  4. Resistant to oils and acids; some is also UV resistant
  5. Install where others cannot be used

In short, these interlocking plastic floor tiles are highly versatile and are suitable for a wide range of applications.

Hard Versus Soft Plastic Flooring Planks

Ours are made of either hard or soft plastics and are designed for a garage or wet area application. Softer squares offer a modular selection for ergonomic, cushion, athletic, and continually damp spaces.

A hard or rigid model will be made of poly material. They’re used in trade shows or outdoors in tents.

Polypropylene Tiling

Taut poly tiling is highly durable and strong enough to support large weight loads. It is ideal for use in automotive and garage floors. It will resist chemicals and solvents.

The strong, no-break tile material can handle the load of heavy vehicles, including cars, trucks, and sometimes even forklifts. The great durability of these also makes them a smart choice for sport subfloorings outdoors, like a basketball court.

These feature an interlocked design that allows for easy installation without needing glue. They sometimes feature a raised base that allows installation where condensation and moisture may be an issue, as in basements.

The design permits airflow beneath, helping to prevent the growth of mold or mildew. Wetness doesn't become trapped underneath the finished surface. There’s no need to pull it up if it gets wet.

Choose polypropylene for the following application uses:
  1. Locations where dampness is present
  2. Locations that will support heavy loads
  3. Sports

PVCs

These usually make for a quieter and more comfortable subfloor. If looking for the best ergonomic and anti-fatigue benefits, opt for one that features a raised bottom. These, including Staylock, are often used in industrial standing workstation environments where ergonomics are a concern.

Flat bottoms are most common in warehouse settings. Our Hiddenlock offers an upscale hidden locking design and is among our most popular flat bottomed locking selections.

Ours are so flexible that they’re occasionally confused with rubber tilings. Frequently, our products actually provide significantly more cushioning than rubberized units.

Floating Plastic Flooring That Looks Like Wood Floors

Use care in selecting a model where condensation is possible. Certain models will trap dampness beneath, leading to the formation of mildew and mold if it isn't pulled up to dry. But plastic floating floor solves that problem.

If working where moisture is present, such as in a basement, consider our Max Tile or Staylock. Both of these plastic flooring models let air flow beneath.

Because humidity in the air can circulate, the configuration helps to prevent mold growth. These can be installed directly over the concrete for a basement that is potentially damp. We do not recommend an underlayment. Some even resemble a hardwood floor.

They are useful for a variety of applications. The best selections will depend on the area of use, such as in a living room or kids play area.

Our modular subfloorings are available in popular colors that allow for creative designs. Use the Greatmats online floors plan designer to easily create complex room layouts, to choose product colors, and to determine quantities needed.

We have numerous other ideas for industrial, athletic, or damp areas.

Athletics

For versatility, consider our plastic floor covering product. It offers cushioning and support for jumping and aerobic activities. It is stable for use under exercise equipment. It won’t form indentations from the equipment’s weight, which is a common complaint with foam.

These will provide extra cushion for aerobics than a rubberized piece or roll. Think of these as in-between types of materials compared to softer foam and harder rubber.

Garage Flooring Tiles

If considering items for garages, two main choices exist: Plastics that snap in place or softer PVCs.

The firm bottom layer sits on pegs just above the subfloors and encourages airflow. These are available in various top designs, including perforated versions.

PVCs tend to offer softness in a quieter subfloor for foot traffic and tool work. Occasionally, they should be sealed to prevent staining from high end automotive tires. To avoid sealing these, use a black coloring wherever a vehicle is parked.

Outdoor Plastic Flooring

When choosing a model for use around pool areas, in playgrounds, or for other outside applications, we recommend a perforated unit such as our StayLock Perforated or Patio Tiling.

These are designed to allow water to drain underneath. This specialized configuration means that the top surface will dry quickly after rain, helping to avoid standing rainwater. Designs with perforations tend to stay much cooler than those that don’t have perforations, which means less chance of unwanted expansion.

Those with perforations feature UV protection for up to 7 years for exterior use on rooftops, patios, decks, and playgrounds.

Others include artificial grass, a ground protection plastic floor mat, and tent floorings for temporary events. These work for home and commercial use. They are water resistant and uniquely suited for temporary and portable installations outdoors.

Q&A Plastic Flooring FAQ

What is plastic flooring called?
At Greatmats, we carry a variety of easy to install selections that fit into one of three categories.
  1. Polyvinylchloride (often shortened to PVC) material yields softness and sound muffling, which often offers an anti-fatigue benefit.
  2. Rigid polypropylene (PP) delivers firmness.
  3. Polyethylene (PE) delivers no-break protective mattings for grasses.

What is the difference between PVC and vinyl floorings?
There isn’t really a significant difference in the two. Some people choose to shorten the name polyvinylchloride when describing it, but both are basically the same thing.

What is laminate?
Laminate consists of plastics that have durability. It does not degrade or break down over time, making it an excellent investment for those seeking a long lasting product.

How much does polyvinylchloride plastic tile flooring cost?
If selecting interlocking products, expect to pay $2 to $4 per square foot. Selecting large vinyl plastic flooring sheets will save a bit of money in coverage.

Is PVC waterproof?
Yes. When used for floorings, count on it to deliver excellent dampness resistance, which makes it a strong selection for places that will include kitchens, bathrooms, or around swimming pools.
