Home outdoor playground deck patio tiles, Interlocking wet area drainage tiles

Our StayLock Tile Perforated Black 9/16 Inch x 1x1 Ft. product is a high-quality, versatile, perforated modular tile that is a perfect solution for residential and small commercial projects.

StayLock perforated tiles offer exterior patio flooring for homes and light condos that are easily installed, and easy to maintain.

Outdoor PVC Flooring

Our perforated tile is made from highly durable recycled PVC material.

They work as indoor floor tiling options for shower rooms, locker rooms, greenhouses, and play areas.
The Staylock Perforated Tiles can be set on hard surfaces, as well as on dirt or grass in limited use. Set them out on flat rooftops, as these are rubber roofing membrane safe. 

Our flexible tiles have a 20-inch fall rating. It is a popular choice for a daycare area with playground structures. 

These will allow water to flow through and drain away quickly.  

StayLock perforated tiles measure 12 x 12 inches. These have a soft base, which is specifically designed for rooftops on rubberized membrane. They’re suitable for residential and light commercial use.

Additionally, it is highly versatile and suitable for many other uses. It offers both traction and comfort in wetness, such as rooftop decks, patios, spas, pools, shower rooms, or greenhouses.

One of the major benefits is the ASTM 20 inch rating for a fall. It yields safety for an area used by kids that can become wet, where slips and falls are common. 

StayLock perforated tiles have 224 triangular-shaped holes. This serves to reduce standing waters.

The raised base will allow air and moisture to freely circulate beneath. This promotes faster drying.

Additionally, the edges of the base are rounded. This makes them safe for use directly on top of rubberized membranes for roofing. They won't puncture the membrane like others could.

It is comfortable against bare feet. And it is durable enough to support tables and lawn chairs with feet larger than 1.5 inches in diameter. 

These can be cut to fit with a sharp knife. Optional borders and corners are available. This will allow creation of an island installation with finished edging. 

Ours consist of recycled content material. They may even contribute to LEED points for green buildings.
If looking for something a little bit different, count on Greatmats. We are offering models in a designer look with several popular colors for play areas on hand.

If desired, custom order in virtually any color imaginable, including terra cotta. Please contact us for details. It can be made to be completely unique, as a customer might decide to create patterns with different colorings for additional distinction. 

Because they have a rating from the ASTM for falls, they're especially workable for playgrounds. These are comfortable and can help to minimize injury from a fall.

They offer maximized traction. Custom colors are available, so customers can achieve the exact playground look that they desire. If expanding the playground space in the future, just order more to increase the dimensions. If seeking a great value, ours have a better price point.

Waterproof Pool Deck

StayLock perforated tiles will not separate over time and are an excellent choice for pool surrounds, hot tubs, and spas, which are areas that commonly are wet. Equipped with many holes, this perforated decking dissipates water quick and easy.

They will be offering increased traction to help prevent falls. While these are tough, they're also nice underfoot. For those sitting poolside frequently, the anti-fatigue capabilities that these offer are a significant benefit. 

StayLock perforated tiles are an ideal option for rooftops. These are lightweight. There's no adhesive needed. Laying out these is a simple DIY project. 

Because these are designed for maximized draining, there are no concerns about water remaining behind. This means people can enjoy the space promptly after it rains.

This is sure to become a favorite gathering place, especially with the anti-fatigue properties. To turn the rooftop into a useable space or to revitalize existing spaces, use these as an affordable, practical option. 

Easy to Install Black Deck Tiles

Flexible StayLock perforated tiles have rounded edges on the underside. This reduces the chance the edging of the perforated flooring will puncture roof membranes.

The perforated outdoor tiles sit on any flat surface as well. If ready to lay them out, no glue or adhesives are required. They have an active locking connector design 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. This allows for expansion in the heat. Expansion and contraction is normal and to be expected when the tiles are installed outdoors and exposed to widely varying temperatures and humidity and / or high altitudes over 2500 Ft.

Heavy tables and chairs are not recommended to be permanently placed on top of these. They need to be able to shift as they expand and contract in changing temperatures. Consider carpeting for decks to hold heavy furniture.

To go around poles, doorways, or other obstacles, cut them with a utility knife and a straight edge. The design allows them to be easily separated, removed, or relocated if needed. They act like rubbery mats. With no adhesives used for assembly, disassembling them doesn't take a lot of effort. 

Place them directly over the wood decking with no barrier layer between. As long as the wood is not rotted and can support the weight of people walking on it, they can be safely installed. 

When trying to install them atop slightly uneven surfaces, our customers have success. The plastic decking will conform to match the contours. Rubberized mats also have this ability.

They will have success with slight differences in the grade. Dry lay them on almost any locale, including grass and dirt. 

Start in one corner of the area. Leave the loops facing out into the room. Save room for the slight gap for expansion. Then work across.

Line up the next and press the nubs on the edge down onto the loops of the first one until they snap together. Repeat the process, building it outward into the room, keeping the loops outward. 

To finish the edging, use the optional border ramps. As the installation moves along, just resize them to fit against walls and other objects.

Use a sturdy edge and a knife with a fresh blade to size them properly. To cut it, make repeated, shallow scores until penetrates through the entire thickness.

Optional ramped border edges are available in black. They are ideal for island installations. They make for a safer, smoother transition onto and off of it.

How Many Borders do I Need?

For Island installations: Where the layout will have all four sides exposed to the room. In this case, the number of borders needed will be the length + width of the layout for each border type, and 4 corner pieces. Use half male and half female borders in this instance. Example 10x12 ft layout, 10+12 = 22 male borders, and 22 female borders, and 4 corners.

For Corner Installations: Where the layout will be pushed into one corner and will have 2 sides exposed to the room. In this case, the number of borders needed will be the length + width of the layout and one corner piece. Use all male borders in this instance. Example 10x12 ft layout, 10+12 = 22 borders, all male, and one corner.

For Inside corners, two border ramps will have to be manually cut at diagonal to fit. Use a sharp utility knife to cut this product or a table saw.

FAQ StayLock Perforated Tiles Q&A

Can you put interlocking patio tiles on grass?
Yes, as they set out on uneven grounds nicely. Our Greatmats flexible patio tiles have the ability to mold to slight undulations on the grounds, delivering the perfect fit. However, if left in place too long, our perforated tile could kill grasses.

Can you lay interlocking deck tiles on dirt?
Yes, but try sticking with our perforated tile drainage models. Our Stay Lock deck tiles have a bit of flex to them, which creates safer spaces atop dirt. This perforated tile provides great drainage too, preventing rainwater from pooling.

Product dimensions may vary by product lot. Color variation may be present with this product, even within the same dye lot. 

Tile expansion can arise when used in these environments: high altitude locations and high sun exposure when installed on hard surfaces like concrete.

Remove tree leaves promptly to prevent potential staining of the tiles by sweeping leaves off the tiles.

Do not power wash or use harsh chemicals.


Recommended cleaning: Use vinegar and baking soda and hot water to clean the family of Staylock floor tiles. Do not use any cleaning solutions that contain bleach or other harsh chemicals. Do not power wash.

Product Questions:

Q: What is the best tool for cutting tiles?
A: To cut the tiles, use a sharp utility knife. Visit our blog about installing these tiles.
Q: Can this product be used on a TPO roof?
A: Yes, this flooring tile is safe for installation on a rubber TPO roofing membrane.
Q: Would this product be appropriate for a basement laundry area?
A: Sure, this would be a great option for indoor basement floors; perhaps consider the solid surface version.
Q: Can the tiles be taken apart if a mistake is made during installation?
A: Depending on the size of the installation. For rooftops, portions of the tiles may need to be glued down, depending on 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.
Q: 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?
A: Planters are fine, and grills are also ok in most cases, because if the weight is dispersed over a few inches of pad, then it will not crush the tiles in a small area.
Q: Can these be used over concrete steps?
A: I think it would be best to use a 1/2 inch thick outdoor rated rubber tile material for steps. With a glue down installation.
Q: Can these tiles be laid over grass and dirt?
A: This tile can be installed over almost any outdoor surface, including grass and 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.
Q: Does the StayLock tile get hot in the sun on bare feet?
A: 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.
Q: Could these be used as outdoor basketball courts?
A: They are a little soft for basketball, so I would recommend our Patio Outdoor Tile when installed over a hard, flat surface.
Q: Is this product suitable for use in a basement that gets occasional water leaks? And can it support a washer/dryer or exercise equipment?
A: This tile can be installed in a basement, and it's not been tested under equipment.
Q: It says it’s not suitable for heavy objects on top of the tiles, but there is a photo of a wooden playset on top of the tiles, so I’m confused. Can a playset be placed on top of the tiles? This is the exact purpose for which I wanted to use them.
A: These tiles are made of flexible PVC plastic. We recommend cutting the tiles to fit around play equipment.
Q: Can you use this on a garage floor?
A: These tiles are made from soft PVC plastic. They are not designed for vehicle use. We do have perforated garage tiles.
Q: Can this product be used over gravel for a wheelchair path?
A: These tiles can be used over gravel. However, we suggest a harder tile for wheelchair use.
Q: Can this product be used over an EPDM roofing surface?
A: Absolutely. They have a rounded foot system that is safe on EPDM roof surfaces.
Q: What should I expect in a heavily wooded lot regarding cleaning leaves and pine needles in the grids? Sweep off? Hose off? Remove and shake off?
A: Debris can fall through the perforations. To clean it out, lift the tiles to sweep or use a leaf blower. You can hose them off as well.
Q: Can it be used on an outdoor surface in the winter if there is a lot of snowfall in my area? Would I be able to run a heated cable under the product to help melt the snow without damaging it?
A: These tiles can be used outdoors in all climates and left outside in the winter. Heat will cause them to expand.
Q: We have a flat roof terrace that recently got a new membrane put on. It has slight ridges where the pieces connect and where they are tarred together; is this product recommended to create a more even surface? Or is there a different tile you suggest? Also, are these tiles stackable if we wanted to get them higher off the floor?
A: The tiles are not tested as stackable, so we don't know. The tiles will follow the surface underneath in terms of flatness.
Q: Would this work over a flat asphalt roof? Should I use an underlayment? And are the tiles substantial enough to have a patio table and chairs on them?
A: The StayLock tiles have only been tested over rubber membranes, not asphalt. Light patio furniture only. No heavy tables and chairs. No underlayment.
Q: Can you place astroturf over these tiles on a flat roof?
A: Yes, astroturf can be used over these tiles. Please reach out to a member of our sales team for more information regarding this.
Q: Can these be used on the ground to withstand parking cars on it?
A: These are not designed for use under vehicles. For that, you'll want to consider either our portable outdoor tiles or one of our ground protection mats.
Q: Does the StayLock get very hot in the summer, and can we use it for a school gym outside?
A: PVC material will heat up in direct sunlight. The raised and perforated design of these tiles will reduce the amount of heat they retain. By installing the tiles in a shaded area, choosing a lighter color, and/or spraying them down with water, you can further control the temperature of the flooring.
Q: I work at an elementary school, and we are looking for something to use as flooring in our Gaga Ball pit. Is it possible to get a sample piece of this product? I want to make sure it will be soft enough.
A: Yes. This is a popular flooring for Gaga Ball pits. Please contact us at 877-822-6622 for a free sample request.
Q: Does StayLock come in any other color than black?
A: Yes, the StayLock Tile Perforated Colors are also available in blue, green, gray, terra cotta, and tan.
