Description - Our 7/8” Jumbo Soft Tiles are constructed with the same high density closed cell foam as our standard Jumbo Soft Tiles, but are softer creating a surface that is more shock absorbent. Since these tiles are softer, they are even better for high impact play and workouts making them perfect for any playroom, martial arts studio, MMA gym, Judo, and much more. Featuring the same reversible colors, these interlocking tiles are still just as easy to carry and store and are still waterproof helping to prevent mold and mildew growth. Coming with two removable edge pieces, the creation of corner, border, or center tiles is a breeze, allowing you to create any size finished flooring surface. These tiles are also latex-free and allergen free, making them safe for children of all ages.

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.
- 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.
