Hi! Would this product be good for under an area with our pool and kids swing set? Thanks, Christie
Yes this product can be installed outdoors on any surface including dirt or grass, and is good for wet areas. The tile will provide some traction when wet and will provide drainage.
Can this product be installed over rubber roofing?
Yes this product is an excellent choice for installation directly over rubber roofing membranes. The underside of this tile features rounded feet that will not damage rubber roofing membranes.
can this product be installed outdoors over sand
Yes this tile can be installed over any outdoor surface, for sand or dirt, we recommend a landscape fabric geo mesh material be laid down first before the tiles go down.
How do you cut this product for fitting around obstructions?
This PVC outdoor rated deck and rooftop floor tile can be cut using a sharp utility knife, leave one inch for expansion in the summer.
Can you use a snow shovel on this material?
Yes this tile can be shoveled in the winter.
How many tiles per carton?
We can put 26 per carton, they are sold by the piece, with a minimum order quantity.
Could this product be used to resurface a wood deck that I don't wish to paint any more?
Yes this tile can be installed over any hard flat surface, including a deck.
Can they be laid over cement?
Yes these outdoor tiles can be installed over any hard flat surface.
I have a cement area 18 ft. long by 4 ft.wide..How much would I need to order to cover the area?
That would be 72 SF or 72 tiles.
Are tapered trim pieces available for this product?
Yes in the related products on this page, you will find ramped border pieces.
My pool surround isn't flat. There are areas where the concrete slopes slightly lower to French drains. Will either the ''Staylock'' or ''Patio outdoor tile'' flex slightly to conform to these areas? Which would be better?
Both of these PVC outdoor plastic tiles will flex with the contour of this surface. Both will work well. The Staylock is UV rated for 7 years, while the Patio Outdoor Tile is not.
Can this product be used on uneven floors?
Yes this is a good option for uneven surfaces as the tiles will flow with the floor.
Can you put these tiles directly over grass
Yes, if the ground is very flat and the grass is very short. The tiles will undulate with the surface of the grade. Normally a hard flat surface for installation is recommended.
One of the reviews mentioned ''buckling'' when in direct sunlight. Do you have suggestions for how to accommodate for this?
All rubber or plastic tiles will expand to some extent when installed outdoors, its a good idea to leave room for a little expansion.
Is this Strong enough to have a wooden kids swing set installed on top of it. I'm looking for product to put between wood and earth.
That depends on the amount of weight per post. Consider this tile are designed for humane use. Its best to place a large heavy swing set or playset on the ground and then surround the area with these outdoor perforated tiles.
Do the tiles get hot in the summer months? Looking for something for the wooden pool deck that does not get hot. How is it to walk on around the pool in the summer?
We have tested the tile by laying it outside in summer sun and we dont see it getting hotter than other types of surfaces, based on a touch test.
Can these mats be installed on a concrete basement floor
Yes these tiles can be installed on any hard flat surface.
Would these tiles be ok to put on top of asphalt roll roofing?
Yes these tiles are rubber and asphalt roof safe, for residential use and light commercial in limited use conditions.
I would like to use these in on my playground. What is the fall zone? Do you give discounts with large quantities?
The fall height is 20 inches and we have discounts starting after about 1000 SF.
Does this product feel hot to the touch when in direct sunlight?
Depending on the temperature and the person touching the tile. I know kids are more sensitive than adults for example. Generally these outdoor PVC floor tiles will not be much hotter than the outdoor temperature. Because they are perforated they dont absorb as much heat as a solid surface might.
How easily do these clean? Can you sweep debris such as leaves and pine needles off or do they get stuck inside the holes?
These Tiles can be lifted easily to sweep or clean beneath. They can also be power washed.
Have a concrete patio. If the patio is removed, leaving only the rock underneath, can this product be used in place of the removed concrete? Like the fact that water seeps through the product. Thanks
These Staylock Perforated Tiles work best over a flat or fairly flat surface. We suggest taking the rock out before installing the Staylock Tiles.
Will this product work for a sport court. I see other tiles labeled as such however I want a cohesive look if we decide to use this specific product under our deck. Also our deck is 1200+ sf so there are several piers to go around are these easily cut to wrap around piers?
Staylock Perforated tiles may be too flexible for a sport court area. Please contact our sales department for recommendations for your specific area.
Do balls, like a basketball, bounce well on these tiles?
The Staylock Perforated Tiles are not rigid enough for bouncing a basketball. Consider our Patio Outdoor Tile instead: https://www.greatmats.com/tiles/interlocking-patio-tiles.php. They should be installed over concrete or asphalt.
Is this product slippery when wet in bare feet?
These mats are not slippery when wet with bare feet.
I am building a dog litter box for my patio. Does this material hold up to urine? Thank you
Yes. It is non absorbant.
Can this product be used inside of a hot tub? Like a non slip rug/mat? Thanks
