Most Common Product Questions For ground protection mat at Greatmats:
Can this product be removed and reinstalled in the event that you need access to the subfloor?
Yes this is not an issue and can be done easily.
How do you cut the tile?
These PVC tiles can be cut using a sharp utility knife. Remember to measure twice and cut once.
Does the floor have to be exactly level?
No the tiles will flow with the flooring surface.
is this product goo to use on surgical room floors
We are not sure about this application, the tiles are not completely waterproof.
How do these tiles react to pet urine and poop?
PVC is very durable and is resistant to most acids and oils. As for your particular pet, we can not say. The product has not been tested for pets.
In the photos it appears that the tiles have some straight edges which would make it so I don't need to buy a border. Am I correct? I cannot find this info anywhere online so far. Thank you.
This product does not have a border option that fits this tile. Two sides of the tile are straight, the other two sides have the lower tab exposed. One could use a traditional edge molding to finish any exposed edges as needed.
Looking for a tile for my semi-finished basement. We have had one ''flooding'' (about an inch of water) since we bought the house, but we got a new sump pump and have hopefully rectified the water situation. Would this tile withstand occasional water?
This tile may trap moisture, but you might do better with a raised tile, like our MAX Tile. Check out our blog about <a href='/basement-flooring/flood-flooring-how-to-choose-waterproof-flooring-for-flood-zones.php'>waterproof flooring for flood zones</a>.
How well would this tile hold up to sand? dog claws?
I think this would be fine for sand and dog claws as long as the dog is not scratching.
what about safety from slippage when wet?
This product has a video showing how the tiles perform when wet in regards to slipping.
Could I use this product in a 3 season sunroom? No heat in winter and no cooling in the summer. Also can it be installed over a plywood subfloor? Is it dimensionally stabile?
The material is stable when not in direct sunlight and with no changes in temperature and or humidity. It can be used for residential installations on any hard flat surface.
Can I install this over a gravel floor?
This tile does need to be installed over a hard flat surface, so gravel is not so good. Perhaps our Staylock tile is better for gravel
Will shoes damage the floor? I’m sure sneakers would be fine, but what about heels (pumps)?
These tiles will hold up to all shoe types. They're made from a durable PVC Plastic.
Can this product be installed over carpeted floors in a residential application such as a home office?
The Hiddenlock Tiles should only be installed over a hard surface. Carpeting will cause the tiles to separate.
can product be used in a travel trailer
These tiles may be used in a travel trailer. They can be cut to fit with a sharp utility knife.
can these tiles be used outside in a kids playground area?
These tiles are for indoor use only.
