Most Common Product Questions For ground protection mat at Greatmats:
Can this dance floor be used outside? (on Grass)
For installation over grass, we recommend the use of our portable floor tile under these dance floor tiles to support them. The tiles are waterproof, and can expand in direct sunlight exposure, like all polypropylene floor tiles.
Are they priced per title or are they a pack example (pack of 10)?
They are priced per tile.
How would this work over carpet? Would there be problems with shifting or mold in a medium humid environment? What about with a dehumidifier?
Mold is not the issue, the issue over carpet could be the cushion of the carpet, if one tile is stepped on and it gets pushed down then the tiles might de-lock. With a low pile carpet we do not see this issue.
Can the tiles be used as a basement floor covering with furniture?
Yes this is a good option.
Show many would you recommend to get just for a regular dance floor enough room for 6. People
That depends on the type of dance, maybe a 10x10 ft would be good.
Can tap shoes be used on this product?
Yes its ok for tap shoes.
I am considering using these tiles on top interlocking rubber mat squares for a little spring. Would this work?
Yes this would work, however we have a rubber roll specifically for this application, that is less dense than common rubber tiles, called our <a href='/products/plyometric-plyorobic-rubber.php'>Plyometric Rubber Roll</a> in 3/8 inch or 6 mm thickness.
Is this floor suitable for a semi-permanent rehearsal studio 20'x20'?
For street shoes yes, for ballet not so much as this flooring tile has seams everyone one foot where the tiles connect.
I need to be able to tape down individual squares of this. Is there a tape that is recommended?
Not sure about this option.
Can I use this floor ballroom dance?
Yes. These can be used for ballroom dance.
Is it okay to put the title over hardwood, to set the weight bench on?
We suggest placing a construction paper beneath these tiles over hardwood. These tiles are not designed for areas where weights could be dropped. The weights could crack the vinyl surface.
Would this type of flooring work well on an uneven concrete floor, or does it have to be perfectly flat?
These tiles will work well over slight imperfections. If you have large divots or cracks, we suggest correcting those before laying a tile over the top.
How many tiles would I need for about 200 guests?
20x20 is pretty standard for an event dance floor.
My room size is 12'/12' how many boxes and borders do I need to get to put floor down
For an open area 12x12, you will need 144 tiles, 24 male borders, 24 female borders and 4 corners. If you are installing these tiles wall-to-wall, we suggest 158 tiles and borders to fit any open areas such as doorways.
For use in basement, can I put washer & dryer on this flooring?
We suggest cutting the tiles to fit around your washer and dryer.
Can you cut these tiles to fit irregular flooring? How do you cut them without messing up the interlocking part?
The tiles can be cut to fit with a power saw and fine tooth blade.
Does this need a foam subfloor if it's used in a basement as a dance floor for hiphop or acro?
You might want to consider a subfloor to provide some cushioning. A thin roll out underlayment is best. Avoid anything too cushioned as the tiles can become unlocked if stepped on at the seams with too much give underneath.
I see that you do not recommend these tiles for ballet due to the seams... does that mean that the seams can be felt? I want to use them for roller skating, but if the surface is not smooth, my wheels will lock up when sliding perpendicular to the seam. Just why I am not skating on my tile floor :) Thanks!
The top surface is smooth at the seams. It has not been tested for roller skating, however. It might be worth checking our <a href='/tiles/court-floor-tile-flat.php'>Flat Top Court Floor Tiles</a>. The court product has a surface that is molded together with the base and may hold up better for this type of use.
i want to use these to place in garage for a dance floor for an event looking at size either 8x8 or 10x10 or 12x12 how many tiles needed and how many border pieces needed...
8x8 - 64 tiles, 32 borders, 4 corners 10x10 - 100 tiles, 40 borders, 4 corners 12x12 - 144 tiles, 48 borders, 4 corners
My basement leaks during heavy rainfall. Would these tiles need to be lifted in order to dry? Also, how are these tiles different than the Max Raised Floor Tiles?
It really depends on how much moisture gets under the tiles and how well your floor drains. It does allow for water to drain towards a floor drain beneath these tiles. It also will allow for some airflow beneath the flooring. If you tend to have puddling on your floor, it will not damage this flooring, but you'll still want to lift the floor and dry out underneath to prevent mold and mildew from forming. The biggest difference between these tiles and the max tiles in the base. This base is designed for quicker installation and disassembly. We also do not recommend high heels on this floor where the Max Tiles are designed to handle high heels.
