pvc flooring Fitting guide

Helpful steps for transforming your floor:

  • Prepare your area – clear out your space, remove all non-permanent items
  • A clean surface is important – sweep up grit and any other debris that might affect the tiles. Level any holes or indentations. A sloping floor is ok, a wavy floor may cause issues. Check for levels.
  • Start from the front – lay your entrance ramps (where applicable) first, then lay your tiles from side to side over your area
  • Use a nylon hammer to secure interlocks together 
Extra helpful tips:
  • To fit around objects and edges we recommend a strong utility knife and a good, solid straight edge. For easier cutting, turn the tile onto its back and score repeatedly. You can also use a jigsaw with a fine blade if necessary
  • Want a straight edge at the sides? Remove the male interlocks and put them in the female ones to give your tiles a straight-edge finish all the way around!
  • Always remember to leave an expansion gap for the tiles – we recommend roughly 1.5 – 2.5cm (0.5 – 1 inch) especially in warm summer months. Expansion can be greater in the heat or if the light is shining directly on the floor/matting area. 
  • When laying on a subfloor other than concrete, floor tiles may behave differently. Please contact us for advise before ordering if this is the case.
  • Our PVC and Polypropylene tiles are not advised for outdoor use as increases in thermal energy on the tiles can cause choking and fading. Rubber products are better suited for outdoor use.
  • Ensure taking particular care when laying tiles around heavy furniture and objects. Greater expansion gaps may be needed to prevent mats choking and lifting in places where expansion is possible. If unsure, contact us for advice.
