Max Tile Raised Floor Tile is truly the best of the best in terms of durable, pet friendly flooring. It is made with the highest quality waterproof materials, and it features a commercially rated vinyl laminate surface finish that is UV treated and scratch resistant.

This floor is easy to clean up - even when pee and poop accidents occur. There are many different realistic upscale wood grain and hardwood designs available, and the floor is easy to install with a durable, snap together design.

This flooring also has a raised, modular design. This means that air and water can flow beneath it, preventing the growth of mold and mildew. So, it’s a great flooring solution for virtually any space - even a damp basement, and it easily covers any type of flat surface, like concrete.



Manhattan Edge SPC Flooring is not only pet friendly, it’s also a super eco-friendly waterproof product that is GreenGuard certified. It has an easy click installation process and ultra durable wide planks.
