Description - Combining the durability of modular tiles with the warmth of carpet, our Carpet-Loc tiles can be used in areas where standard carpet will not make the cut. These carpet tiles feature pegs that raise your tiles above any dampness, and provide space to cover small cords. You will also have a vented surface underneath your tiles allowing instant drainage and airflow. With an easy snap together installation, you will find these tiles in both residential and commercial spaces.

Recommended Uses - Our Carpet-Loc tiles have been used as carpet in exercise rooms, aerobic rooms, basements, laundry rooms, trade shows, indoor pools, bedrooms, and much more.
Installation of interlocking Carpet-Loc tiles is very simple and typically done by the consumer. Typical installation of these tiles is as follows:
- First, clean your sub floor so it is free of all dirt, grease or debris.
- Start in one corner of the room with a corner tile and add border tiles outward along the adjacent walls. Add center, corner, and border tiles where you see fit.
- When coming up to an opposite wall, make sure you cut the tiles to fit the area leaving a gap that’s roughly the thickness of the tiles being used to account for expansion and contraction of the floor tiles in varied temperature ranges.
Note: When piecing interlocking tiles together, adhesives are usually not used since the weight of the locked together product is usually enough to keep the floor tiles from moving. However, if you do experience movement and would like to ensure that the tiles do not slide at all, some double-sided tape or mat tape can be used around the perimeter of the installation to prevent any movement.
