Product Features
- Made in the USA
- 1x1 foot modular tile
- 20-inch ASTM 1292 fall height rating

StayLock Perforated non-slip outdoor decking tile floor tiles measure 1x1 foot in diameter. They feature a soft base which is specifically designed for rooftop installations over rubber roofing membrane, suitable for residential and light commercial use. However, this tile is highly versatile and is suitable for many other uses, too. It offers both traction and comfort on wet surfaces such as rooftop decks, patios, spa, pool surrounds, shower floors, and industrial floors. It is designed for outdoor installations, though it can be used indoors, too.

One of the major benefits of this rooftop tile is its ASTM fall height rating. The tile is soft and forgiving, and has a 20-inch fall height rating. It makes for a safe surface option, particularly for areas used by kids, or wet areas where slips and falls are common.

Each StayLock perforated tile is perforated with 224 triangular-shaped holes, which serves to maximize drainage and avoid standing water from pooling on the tile. The raised base allows water and moisture to freely circulate beneath the tile, which promotes faster drying and prevents the growth of mold and mildew.

Additionally, the rounded edges of the tile's base make it safe for use directly on top of rubber roofing membranes; it won't puncture the membrane like other tiles could. Though the tile is soft and comfortable against bare feet, it is durable enough to support tables and lawn chairs with feet larger than 1.5 inches in diameter.

With its excellent drainage and soft structure, the tile is frequently used for institutional and residential outdoor swimming pools, patios, greenhouses, rooftops, and decks. But it also serves another purpose: the tile helps to create a safe, comfortable work environment where workers may be exposed to wet floors. These modular tiles offer anti-fatigue benefits to workers, helping to keep them more comfortable during long hours on their feet. The tile is naturally resistant to most oils and many acids, so it's suitable for a number of different work environments.

These modular tiles feature an active tab locking system, so installation is easy. The tiles connect together tightly, and won't separate over time. There's no adhesive required for installation, and you can even take up or relocate the tiles in the future if you need. For wall-to-wall installations, these tiles can be cut to fit with a sharp utility knife. Optional border and corner pieces are also available for purchase, so you can create an island installation with finished edges.

The black tiles are ideal for outdoor installations, because there is no color that can fade out of the tiles. Your tiles will continue looking great for years to come. The black tiles are made from recycled content material, and may even contribute to LEED points for green buildings. Shade variations may be present from tile to tile with this product, even within the same dye lot.

If you're looking for something a little bit different, we're sure to have that, too. These tiles are available in a designer look with your choice of several popular colors. You can also custom order these tiles in virtually any color you can imagine; please contact us for details. Your flooring can be as unique as you are, and some customers decide to create patterns using different colored tiles for additional distinction.

Use Types
One of the major advantages of StayLock perforated tiles is their versatility. These dry deck tiles can be used for a variety of applications. Consider the following potential uses for these tiles:
- Outdoor deck tiles
- Pool surrounds
- Spas
- Patio flooring
- Rooftop flooring
- Outdoor play areas
- Greenhouses
- Shower flooring
- Home playground flooring

These tiles are highly versatile, but they offer a number of benefits depending on their various applications.

Home Playground Flooring
Because these tiles have an ASTM fall height rating, they're ideal for home playground flooring. These tiles are comfortable on bare feet, and can help to minimize injury from falls. They offer maximized traction and are available in custom colors so you can get the exact playground look that you desire. If you decide to expand your playground space in the future, all you have to do is order some more tiles to increase your flooring dimensions.

Pool Surrounds
StayLock perforated tiles are an excellent choice for pool surrounds, hot tubs, spas, and other wet areas. Equipped with many perforations, these tiles drain water away quickly, so there's never standing water on top of the tiles. They offer increased traction to help prevent falls, but if falls do occur their 20-inch ASTM fall height rating helps to minimize injury. While these tiles are durable, they're also soft and comfortable underfoot. And if you'll be spending lots of time poolside, you'll appreciate the anti-fatigue benefits that these tiles offer.

Outdoor Deck Flooring
StayLock dry deck tiles are an ideal deck or rooftop flooring option. They're lightweight and easy to install, and can even be installed directly on top of rubber rooftop membranes. There's no adhesive needed for installation, and installing these tiles is an easy DIY project.

Because these tiles are designed for maximized drainage, you won't have to worry about standing water on your deck. This means you can enjoy your deck again promptly after it rains. Since these tiles drain water away and allow it to dry quickly, you don't have to worry about mold or mildew growth beneath the tiles.

These black tiles make an attractive outdoor floor decking finish. The black tiles have no color which can fade away, so they'll look great for years to come. Your deck is sure to become a favorite gathering place, especially with the tiles' anti-fatigue properties. Whether you want to turn your rooftop into a useable space, or revitalize your existing deck, these tiles are an affordable, practical deck option.

Installation Tips

StayLock Perforated tile options have rounded edges on the underside, which makes it a smart solution for placing directly on top of rubber roofing membranes. This reduces the chance the edges of the tiles will puncture the roofing membrane. This tile provides great drainage on any flat surface as well.

When you're ready to install these tiles, you will not require glue or adhesives. Each tile easily connects to other tiles for a long lasting, durable floor.

If installing these tiles against a wall or another large object, we recommend leaving a 1/2-inch gap between the PVC deck tiles and the object to allow for expansion of the tiles in the heat. Expansion of tiles, whether they're rubber or plastic, is normal when the tiles are installed outdoors and exposed to widely varying temperatures. Heavy furniture, table and chairs are not recommended to be permanently placed on top of these tiles. The tiles need to be able to shift as they expand and contract in changing temperatures.

Should you need to fit the PVC deck tiles around poles, doorways, or other obstacles, you can cut them with a utility knife and a straight edge.

Due to the method of interlocking these PVC decking tiles, you can easily separate, remove, or relocate them, if needed. By not using adhesives when assembling these tiles, disassembling them doesn't take a lot of effort.

If installing the tiles on a deck, you can just place them directly over the wood with no barrier layer between. As long as the deck's wood is not rotted and can support the weight of people walking on it, you can install the PVC deck tiles and then use the deck as you normally would.

Should you attempt to install the tiles over a slightly uneven surface, you'll have success, as the PVC plastic tiles will conform over time to match the contours of the surface. A hard, flat surface is recommended for installation, but the tiles will have success with slight differences in grade along the surface.

When doing a wall-to-wall installation of the PVC decking tiles, you will start in one corner of the area, leaving the slight gap for expansion, and work your way across the deck. To finish the edges of the tiles, you can use the border pieces. As you move the installation across the deck, you may need to cut tiles to fit against walls and other objects. Just use a sharp utility knife and a straight edge to size the tiles properly.

Installing these dry deck tiles is easy. You can dry lay these tiles on any hard, flat surface, including carpeting and even turf and dirt.

For a wall-to-wall installation, begin in the corner of your room and position your tile with the loops facing out into the room. Line up the next tile and press the nubs on the edge down onto the loops of the first tile until they snap into place. Repeat the process, building the flooring out into the room, keeping the loops facing out.

These tiles can be easily cut to fit using a straight edge and a utility knife. To cut each tile, make repeated, shallow scores until you cut through the entire tile. Always use a straight edge to keep the cut straight.

Ramped border edges are available in both black and yellow. They are ideal for island installations, and make for a safer, smoother transition onto and off of the flooring. These border edges are sold separately.

These modular deck tiles are easy to clean and maintain, so you can spend more time enjoying your new outdoor space. You can damp mop the tile using common household floor cleaners. Avoid using bleach on these tiles.

Q & A⌃ Back to top
Ask a question about this product

Product Questions:

What is the best tool for cutting tiles?
To cut the tiles, use a sharp utility knife. Visit our blog about installing these tiles.
I live in Arizona. I. Want to put these a over concrete patio. How long will they hold up under the Arizona sun?
Black is a good color for outdoors for fading concerns, as black has no color to fade out, however it will be hotter than other colors. The color options in this tile are rated for average sun exposure outdoors for 7 years, however this is not part of the product warranty. All PVC and rubber outdoor tiles will eventually fade in the sun.
how thick is this product
This perforated floor tile is 9/16 of an inch thick. For this and other products please check the Spec tab on our product page for tile sizes.
what is the fall height for this product, I understand that it meets the ASTM 1292 rating, but is there an actual number like 5' or something?
This outdoor tile features a 20 inch fall height rating.
Can this product be used on a TPO roof?
Yes this flooring tile is safe for installation on a rubber TPO roofing membrane.
Would this product be appropriate for a basement laundry area?
Sure this would be a great option for indoor basement floors, perhaps consider the solid surface version.
Can the tiles be taken apart if a mistake is made during installation?
Depending on the size of the installation. For rooftops, portions of the tiles may need to be glued down, depending the available perimeter constraints for the installation. We recommend a collar be a part of the installation to hold the tiles in place over time. The installation instructions are recommended for review. For smaller jobs under 400 SF, the tiles can be free dry laid.
The Weight Loading on the posted Specifications Data Sheet references 'patio furniture,' which can be both very light or very heavy. Can you quote a specific weight? Can these tiles support grills and relatively heavy planters?
Planters are fine, grills are also ok in most cases, because if the weight is dispersed over a few inches pad, then it will not crush the tiles in a small area.
Can these be used over concrete steps?
I think it would be to use a 1/2 inch thick outdoor rated rubber tile material for steps. With a glue down installation.
can these tiles be laid over grass and dirt
This tile can be installed over almost any outdoor surface, yes to grass and or dirt. Make the surface as smooth as possible first and cut the grass short. Review our blog about installing patio tile over grass and dirt.
would this withstand the weight of my car? I would like to place it in my carport
This tile is not designed for use with cars. I would suggest a hard plastic polypropylene tile that is perforated.
Does the staylock tile get hot in the sun and if barefooted?
We have tested the tiles ourselves with a hand touch test method and we do not find that the tiles get any hotter than concrete, however we did have one customer that said otherwise.
Does this product work well over an older deck-the wood is good, but I am tired of painting, and would like a flooring were the grandkids would not get any slivers. I live in Wisconsin, so would it be ok outside year around. Also can you put a rug over it for decorating if wanted? Nancy
Yes this is a very good application for this floor tile, exterior use, all climates.
Could these be used as an outdoor basketball court?
They are a little soft for basketball, I would recommend our Patio Outdoor Tile, When installed over a hard flat surface. Shown here.
Is this product suitable for use in a basement that gets occasional water leaks? And can it support a washer/dryer or exercise equipment?
This tile can be installed in a basement, and its not been tested under equipment.
It says it’s not suitable for heavy objects on top of the tiles, but there is a photo of a wood play set on top of the tiles so I’m confused. Can a play set be placed on top of the tiles? This is the exact purpose for which I wanted to use them. Thanks.
These tiles are a flexible PVC Plastic. We recommend cutting the tiles to fit around play equipment.

Building a playhouse for my granddaughter and needed an outside base to put it on that was soft enough for a toddlers falls but durable enough for Ohio weather. So I contacted Greatmats Chat. They recommend the Staylock tiles. Ordered 36 sq ft in light gray. They arrived three days later. Assembling them was not only easy but fun (think bubble wrap snapping).
They looked so great I thought I needed to expand the base and put in the borders. So back to chat for advice. They frankly told me that the next lot of light gray might be a shade different. Taking that advice I ordereded the black tiles with the borders. Just got them today and have half set up. Beautiful! Great company to deal with.

I got these hoping that they would work as outside entry mats in the winter. I can say now that they do work, very well indeed, better than any other mat I've tried. Every other entry mat that I've tried, whether made of natural or artificial fiber, holds water, snow, and snow melt, turning into useless slabs of ice early in the winter. They also slide around. I usually ended up chucking them in the bushes sometime in December. This mat does not hold water or trap snow and ice. Because of the perforations and perhaps also the black color, a day or two after a snow storm, the mat has cleared itself of snow and ice, in place, without my having to pick it up and bang it against the side of the steps. It also stays put, doesn't move around. And you can make a mat as large as you like. The perforations probably do not scrape boot bottoms as well as other rough mats designed for this purpose, but they do it well enough for me, and unlike other mats they actually work in the winter.

Monona, WI

Customer Rating:

This product installed easily on landscape fabric for a swing set / slide in my backyard for my sons to play on. The tiles were easy to snap together using a board and a rubber mallet. Some of the tiles snapped with hand pressure, but some of the interlocking pieces were a little bit cold and the rubber mallet got them to go through the rectangular slots. The pieces were a little cold when they came right out of the box, but everything warmed up and became more pliable pretty quickly in the sunlight of a 60 degree day.The tiles are pretty soft to fall on

The StayLock Perforated Black One Foot Square mats have worked perfectly for allowing us to create outside usable living space on a flat roof deck.


Customer Rating:

I am very satisfied with the Greatmats product. As advertised, the product was shipped timely and lived up to the specifications described. I purchased approximately 100 of the square foot tiles plus the corresponding corner and border tiles. The flooring was installed on my second floor outdoor porch above a roofing membrane flooring. The interlocking edges and the relatively flat surface that I was installing the product made it easy to install. Prior to purchasing the product I had some reservations as to how difficult it would be to cut some of my edge tiles, however with a pair of large sharp scissors I found the tiles were able to get cut easily. It took me about three hours to complete the entire installation. The product has been in place for about a month and I am very happy with the finished product.


Customer Rating:

Perfect solution to incorporate a mulch-free zone for our toddlers on the playground. Tiles are flexible and stay put when locked together. Installation was quick and easy. We added the border edge for a finished look and smooth the transition.

Allentown, PA

Customer Rating:

We are extremely satisfied with these tiles! We installed them under our 2nd story deck in a kids play area. The ground beneath was compacted soil and a bit uneven and they look great! They were very easy to install - the job went much quicker than we expected it to go! We used a rubber mallet and a small piece of wood underneath the seams to stabilize them while we connected the tiles. They look great, feel great, and can't be beat for the price! We would buy them again in a heartbeat!


Customer Rating:

The Great Mat product we purchased is great. The middle school students truly enjoy playing monkey ball with the new and safer surface. It is also more clean. Students are no longer getting dirt on their pants and possible holes due to the dirt in the pit before. We thank you for your product and your great service!
