18" x 18" x 5mm thick tile

Description - The slate pattern tile design is perhaps our most decorative appearing floor tile as it mimics the look of natural slate tile flooring in a variety of vibrant colors. This tile has a hidden interlocking design to guarantee a beautiful finish and a slip resistant surface. These tiles also help prevent fatigue during long periods of standing since they are flexible and help provide some cushion under foot.
Material – Slate pattern tiles are constructed entirely of a proprietary blend of flexible PVC that guarantees a durable, vibrant, and attractive low cost floor tile solution. This material also ensures that the tiles are flexible in order to have the anti-fatigue flooring qualities often associated with rubber flooring but also the long wear life and chemical resistance associated with PVC tiles.
Size – 18" x 18"
Thickness – 0.216" (~5mm)
Weight – 4 Lbs. per tile
Recommended Uses – Slate pattern tiles have been used successfully as a tile flooring option in entrance ways, as basement flooring, in laundry and utility rooms, as garage flooring, in rec rooms and bathrooms, in kid’s play rooms, dens, offices, locker rooms, and any other place where a decorative and easy to install floor tile option would be useful.

  • Slate Flex tiles typically ship in 1-2 business days unless out of stock. Out of stock colors typically take 6-8 weeks to ship out.
  • An email will automatically be sent to you with your tracking information as soon as your products ship and tracking information becomes available.

Slate pattern tiles are low maintenance and easy to clean. Cleaning of these interlocking tiles typically consists of:
  • Sweeping any loose dirt, dust, or debris from the vinyl floor tiles when necessary.
  • Periodic damp mopping of the tiles with a mild soap and water solution. Some common soaps often used are dish detergents and tide laundry detergent.
Note: This is not a stain proof product. Street tar can cause staining to light colored tiles and in most instances this staining can be remedied with a cleaner called Purple Power. If you have performance tires, staining can occur with light colored tiles. In most instances this may not be remedied with a cleaner. If the staining on your floor does not dissipate, please contact our dedicated Customer Service team at 800-613-0996 who can further assist you.

Installation of interlocking 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.
  • Snap a chalk line on the sub floor 18” from one wall in your room. Snap another chalk line on the subfloor 18” from an adjacent wall. You should now have a pair of perpendicular lines making an approximate 90-degree angle.
  • Begin laying the interlocking tiles along the chalk lines, snapping the locks together as you go.
  • Leave the perimeter of the room open until the field is installed.
  • After the field is covered, go back and cut in lines along the walls in the room. Leaving a gap at the wall roughly the thickness of tiles being used is recommended 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.

I decided to turn my 3 car garage into a gym....but still have the ability to use it as a garage. Slate Flex Tile was the perfect choice for flooring. Two of us installed it in one day.

New Laundry Room Floor
4/5 Slate Flex Tiles
William Kocik from Garfield Heights, Ohio
05/20/2014
I found the flooring on the internet and looked at a lot of tiles but choose the Slate Flex Tiles. The order arrived early (Thursday just before Easter) and the floor was installed by Sunday. The hardest decision was how to start because the room is not square. Once that was determined the tiles went in very easily except for the intricate cuts required around the bathroom. My wife gave me a suggestion that worked very well to cut the cardboard boxes to the 18 X 18 tile size and use them to create a template for the actual tile. It worked great. The tiles only assemble one way and that caused some concern about having enough tiles because cutting off 12 inches from one side can not be used on the other. I finally found a way to cut the pieces at the correct spot to use the wide cutoff pieces in other ways. The only issue is the seams won't line up any more, but since it was on edges behind the washer and dryer it did not make and difference. Finding a way to use cut edges was key for me to get the job done with the tiles I purchased with only 3 full tiles to spare. Everyone likes the job and it solved my floor problems in the room without repainting every couple years.

Great Product

This tile was used in a much older home where the floors had some flex in them so whatever went down in the bathroom had to give a little bit. Cuts easily with a sharp utility knife and goes down very easily. The bathroom floor where it was used looks great. I would recommend this product to others and intend to order more for the utility room since the bathroom turned out so well.

My utility room
5/5 Slate Flex Tiles
Kerry Sneddon from Forked River, NJ

I needed a resilient and durable floor in my utility room. I have seven giant breed dogs (Newfoundlands and Great Pyrenees) and normal wear and tear on any other floor surface other than tile or slate is accelerated. These Slate Flex tiles went down impeccably and I put a bead of silicone sealant down along all the seams before tapping them in place. It provided a waterproof joint and excess silicone in the seam peeled right off after a few hours. The surface has provided good traction for the dogs and clean up is simple with just a damp sponge mop. I am seriously considering putting this resilient flooring down throughout the major traffic patterns in my house, it's that good!!!

Stair project.
5/5 Slate Flex Tiles
Chris J from San Diego, CA

I removed the carpeting from my stairs and replaced it with wood risers and brown Slate Flex tiles for the treads and stair turnaround. I decided to use the Slate Flex tiles instead of wood treads/flooring for the stair treads and stair turnaround after receiving a sample and deciding it would offer better grip for my two large dogs to get up and down the stairs while still looking good. So far it looks great, the dogs can get up and down pretty easily and it is holding up very well. I left the flooring for the turnaround as a “floating” floor, it stays in place nicely with the inter locking feature and the side walls holding it in place (with a proper gap) , the stair treads are interlocked and cut to fit (10” x 40” step tread), then bonded (using flexible adhesive) and nailed in a few places using a 18 gauge brad nails from a nail gun with the pressure set correctly.

4/5 Slate Flex Tiles

We are finishing a basement and wanted a durable, easy to install floor. Carpet is a no-no (been there done that), if you ever have any water problem, even a small one the carpet has to be pulled. Wood is a no-no for same reason. We preferred not to have to install a sub-floor so that left tile out --- and tile is cold in basement. A floor with some insulating factor is a great plus in a basement. We were going to go with a floating floor cork tile then stumbled on slate flex rubber floor. Met all the criteria, floating installation, some insulating factor and impervious to any water. Installed it in the bathroom yesterday. It was an easy installation, even in a bathroom where there was lots of cutting to fit around shower, toilet drain, etc. It looks great, not as high end as cork or tile would have looked but very good for what it is. We will be putting silicone sealant around the seam where the tile meets the shower, on all other edges we installed a baseboard on top of the tile to cover the expansion gap. I am giving the product a 4 (not a 5) because I do not yet have enough experience with how it holds up over time.

The new office
5/5 Slate Flex Tiles
Tony from Camarillo, CA

This was the last room to be remodeled in our late 50's home. The house was moved to the site in 1961 and needless to say, we have some issues in the house with the "not so flat" sub-flooring. This product was the answer to the "issues" we had. 2 days and the install was complete (did it myself). Take your time, be patient and measure twice. We covered the office, into an attached Bath and walkin closet. The floor is laying flat on a not so flat floor and no lifting at any seams. It's easy to clean and so far, shows no marks. The only down side is the noise from the office chair rolling across a textured surface. 3 quick install tips: 1, change blades often on the box cutter or tile knife. It will make the cutting cleaner and much easier. 2, Place an old white sock over the head of the rubber mallet used to set the seams. This will not only help the mallet slide a little, but prevent it from making any black marks on the tiles. 3. Order more than you think you need. There is lots of waste due to the tile being installed in one direction only. Great product.
