Most Common Product Questions For rubber flooring roll at Greatmats:
Can this floor be used on grass?? Thanks
Potentially yes, over very short and very flat grass. However its best to use the Portable Outdoor Floor Tile under the portable dance floor tiles as a base.
Can this be used on top of carpet?
Yes this can be installed over any hard flat surface, including carpeting. For more information, visit our <a href='/portable-dance-floor/best-dance-floors-for-over-carpeting.php'>dance floors over carpet</a> blog.
Can this floor be used for tap dancing?
Yes, our 'Tap Kit' product page, which is the same tiles, has a good video of someone tap dancing on the tiles. For installations larger than 3x3 ft, some people have commented that this floor tile may be a little slippery for tap shoes if moving around.
Can this be used without buying the black edging? Thanks
Yes, the border ramps are not required.
Can this be used over concrete,.Thinking of creating a dance floor in our basement for daughter who does Irish Dancing.
Yes it can be, and we would recommend a 2 or 3 mm rubber underlayment or similar for some cushion from the concrete. This tile is great for dance with tennis shoes or similar. For ballet, modern or similar, use a marley vinyl dance flooring surface.
I do pole fitness can it be cut to place a pole through
Yes the material can be cut using a sharp utility knife.
Can this be used on concrete?
Yes this is a good surface for an installation. For extra cushion and quiet, consider a 3 mm rubber underlayment.
I'd like to put this down over my brand new hardwood floors so I can have my dance party. What is the underside of say the checkered flooring made of? Would it scratch my wood floors?
The base of the tiles are made of polypropylene plastic, which is a durable hard plastic, if the tiles shift, its possible that some scratching might occur. If the tiles don't move I don't see a problem.
Can this flooring be used for pointe?
It could be, and generally for ballet, dancers want a surface that has few if no seams, so marley is preferable. We have a flat top click together tile that can be installed over carpeting, then put marley vinyl on top for a finished surface. Visit our <a href='/dance-flooring/top-five-dance-floors-for-ballet.php'>Top 5 Ballet Floors</a> blog for the best marley floor options.
Is this floor good for practicing turns? Also is it good for practicing lyrical and jazz?
The modular tiles have a commercial grade vinyl surface and is not rated for traditional dance such as ballet or jazz and lyrical, I would recommend one of our marley floors of your use.
I am planning on putting together am outdoor dance studio for public use in the summer. How many tiles would I need to purchase to good 50 people? And how is it stored for accessible transporting.
We recommend 9 square feet of space per person for a general dance floor area, each tile is 1 SF, so about 450 SF would be suitable for 50 people. We have transport carts that can be used for stacking and storing of this portable dance flooring tile.
Would this floor be adequate for practicing ballroom or latin dancing? And is it feasible to create small, temporary practice space a few days a week (in other words, install and break down every few days)?
Yes this portable flooring tile option is very good for ballroom type dancing. The tiles are 1x1 ft in size and easy to install, take apart and re-install as needed.
After installation, is there any noticeable space between each tile? I would like to use the flooring for breakdancing and I do a lot of slides and spins along various parts of my body. Would the spacing between each tile be noticeable if I slide across the floor?
Yes this is possible, for your dance type I would recommend a solid surface material, like a marley sheet vinyl rolled good.
Can this be used as a runway/aisle?
Sure this is an option.
Does the black ramped border edging come with this product?
The ramped edge is sold separately, depending on how many you might need.
Can this floor be used for a home yoga set-up? The floor would be set-up on top of carpet, a yoga mat would be used on top, and it would be partly collapsed daily.
Yes you can install this tile over carpet and yes you could do yoga on this surface, and the tiles can be put together repeatedly, but I'm not sure I would want to put the tiles together and take them apart everyday.
What do you suggest for a floor that is currently covered with slightly not-level Mexican/Saltillo tile? They are roughly one foot square. We are hoping to practice Argentinian Tango on it; i.e. some turns and spins.
I would first install some rubber underlayment in 6 mm to help level the floor then install our Max Tile product as the finished surface.
Which type would be best since I do use heels and I will be laying this down on marble flooring. Thanks!
Greatmats portable dance flooring in 1x1 ft tiles works well for all dance shoe types, including high heels.
I have already purchased the tiles, but didn't think about storage until after first use. Do you sell a storage bag to store or transport the tiles? I have 9 total tiles. Thanks!
We do not offer a storage bag or container for this product. Good idea.
What is the best cleaning method ?
Simply damp mop with hot water and a sponge, and you may use a common household floor cleaner.
Can you use floor on grass?
Its best to first install a temporary floor tile on top of the grass, then these modular portable dance floor tiles. See the product Portable Outdoor Floor Tile Gray.
I pole dance and want to install a pole at home. However I do not want to ruin my brand new carpet with the underneath of the tiles or my pole. What would you suggest using underneath these tiles so it does not add severe indentations? The pole would be on top of the tiles. Would that also be safe with not moving as this pole is not permanently fixed the the ceiling?
This is a good product for your purposes.
Would this work for highland dancing? There is a lot of jumping involved.
Yes as long as the tiles are installed on a hard flat surface.
Can this be used over a plush carpet?
Maybe not such a great idea. The tiles might move to much up and down.
Would it be possible to leave the tiles on the floor 24/7 or would you not recommend that? Thinking it would be easy leaving them attach everyday instead of taking them off and putting back together every single day
Yes the tiles can be left installed as long as needed.
So for the $6.19. It says 26 pieces for that price. So I’m wondering are there 26 tiles connected together for that price?
The price per tile at the moment is $6.19 EA with free shipping. These tiles are interlocking to create any size area.
I am looking to get a dance floor for my wedding that’ll be an outside party. I have looked for information on sqft for around 100 guests. About how many would I need to buy for max of 100 guests?
Anywhere from 12x12 to 18x18 is pretty common for 100 wedding guests. I think it will depend on how many you think will be dancing.
About how many tiles do I need to create a dance floor for a backyard wedding? It’s a very small wedding
A common dance floor size is 20x20. You could go smaller for a smaller wedding. Please contact us for a quote.
Can portable dance floor tiles be installed over a level gravel driveway?
For a temporary dance floor, you may install these over the gravel. It would work better using an outdoor tile as a sub floor like our portable outdoor tiles.
Can this be put on top of carpet
These tiles can be used over any hard flat surface, including commercial carpeting. For more information, visit our dance floors over carpet blog.
Can the tiles be placed directly on hardwood floors without risking damaging them? (We want to use these in a 100 year old historic landmark home. The floors are original hardwood that is finished with wax/varnish, and NOT finished with a hard or scratch-proof acrylic or polyurethane sealant.) If a protective underlay is needed, then what are some budget-friendly options for the underlay?
These tiles can be installed directly over a hardwood floor. You may also add a 2 mm or 3 mm underlayment for added protection and cushion. Here are links to our underlayment options: https://www.greatmats.com/floor-underlayment/rubber-underlayment-2mm-4x50.php https://www.greatmats.com/rolls/rubber-underlayment-3mm-4x50.php
can these be put on luxury vinyl planks for tap dancing. Will they scratch or damage the planks
You may install these tiles directly over and hard, flat surface. You may lay a construction paper beneath the tiles to help protect the sub floor.
Would this be suitable for breakdancing? Hands and other body parts frequently are in contact with the floor. Would the seams pinch and cause issues? I saw a similar question and you recommended marley which is very bad for this dance style.
This is a great option for break dancing. The tile seams are very minimal.
Is this surface suitable for practicing pointe?
For pointe, recommend the Adagio Marley vinyl for a dance surface. Here is a link:https://www.greatmats.com/dance-flooring/rosco-adagio-cut-perlf.php

Are these tiles are soundproof? We are living in third floor, so looking for sound proof mats / tiles for dance which has tapping.
These are not soundproof. You can, however, dampen the noise by using a rolled rubber underlayment. Please give us a call for recommendations.
How heavy is each individual tile? I'll need a lot of these, and will also need to transport them often.
2 pounds per tile
