Most Common Product Questions For ground protection mat at Greatmats:
What type of adhesive do you recommend for a light commercial use? (Private office gym)
For light commercial and home use, we recommend double sided carpet tape over 400 SF, under 400 SF most installations don't require glue or tape.
What's the difference between the Color Geneva and the Color Cascade?
They are made by a different manufacturer. Geneva ships from the Midwest United States. Cascade ships from the Northwest United States.
Are your mats closed cell
Yes, the foam is closed cell, EVA foam material.
What is the best way to clean this flooring?
For large areas, many of our customers use a walk behind commercial floor cleaner with soft brushes. For smaller areas the foam tiles can be vacuumed and damp mopped.
Can you use bleach water for disinfecting? We disinfect every day to try and mitigate kennel cough. We rotate Bleach water solution with Odoban.
Yes its ok with a diluted solution.
Hi, Does this flooring work for outdoors? We are hoping to be able to work with our dog outdoors on a concrete area but want to make sure that it will still be a good flooring for her joints and also if it would stand the outdoor elements. Please advise. Thanks, Beatriz
This foam tile is designed for indoor use, foam tiles can expand and or deform when exposed to increases in heat and or humidity.
im looking to convert a room in my house to a play/training room for my dogs. Would I need to remove the carpet from the room before laying down the mats or would I be able to lay the mats down on top of the carpet?
It is advised to remove the carpet first to prevent the foam tiles from slipping on top of the carpet.
Following up on the outdoor question asked by someone else - if it is laid down just for working the dog and then moved indoors for storage, will that be ok? I understand life of product may not be as long as if it was installed indoors. My primary use will be for jump grids and small sequences and I too have a concrete area that has the optimum space for that work. Thanks.
This is possible, just don't leave it outdoors.
Is it recommended to use an adhesive when installing the tiles to a concrete floor?
No these tiles are design to free lay over any hard flat surface including concrete.
If it were used in a garage, would parking cars on it ruin it for agilitytraining?
Parking cars on this foam flooring would surely crush this product flat.
How much do the mats expand over time with both use and heat?
This will depend on the environment, 1/8 inch per mat over several years is not uncommon. The more stable the temperature and humidity, the less expansion.
Do the mats have to be near a wall or will they work in a centered portion of space on top of pergola flooring?
The mats do not have to be wall to wall and can be installed on any hard flat surface.
do these mats have a transition bevel for areas that are not against a wall? I don't want a tripping hazard.
This dog agility foam tile does not have any ramped edges.
Dogs may accidentally urinate on the seams of these mats. What method do you recommend for clean up so these affected areas do not encourage others, and also, how to maintain a clean and healthy floor in our facility?
Clean up any issues right away with hot water and a little bleach.
Would these be ok for a dog daycare or more for just a training area?
These are not recommended for daycare, as these mats are foam and not as durable as rubber for scratching.
Where is this product made? Dog agility mats
These Dog Agility mats are made in Taiwan.
Is 4 teaspoons of bleach per quart of water diluted enough to prevent damage to these mats?
That would be fine. Keep in mind that the bleach solution may leave a white residue once it dries. This will not harm the tiles, but you may want to sweep or vacuum off the residue.
In the Specs, it says these mats are a felt grip top and also reversible. Does that mean that both sides of the mat have a felt grip top? Thanks.
That is correct.
