Description - We at IncStores are proud to introduce our new 5/8” Soft Wood Tiles. Our new foam backed tiles offer the same modern and attractive appearance, but offer much more durability being more scratch-resistant and can withstand more abuse. These high quality tiles are still easy to install, low cost, light weight, and waterproof which means they can be installed in a variety of situations. These foam flooring tiles also help to reduce sound transmission and help to keep users insulated from cold subfloors below. Each tile comes with two removable edge pieces attached which allows you to turn any tile into a corner, border, or center tile; and just like our standard soft wood tiles, our new soft wood tiles are 100% allergen free and latex free.
Note: The wooden design is a thin yet durable veneer like foam surface that can be punctured under rough use and the wooden pattern is not guaranteed to always line up between interlocking tiles.
Material – Soft wood tiles are constructed of closed cell high density foam that helps ensure they are water proof, odor free, light weight yet durable and insulating.
Size – 2' x 2' (Note: Tiles do overlap 1” where they lock together)
Thickness – 5/8 Inch nominal (~14mm)
Weight – Each tile weighs approximately 1.88 Lbs.
Recommended Uses – Soft wood tiles have been used successfully as basement flooring, trade show flooring, exhibit flooring, retail display flooring, living areas, children’s play rooms, commercial applications, conventions, or any other location where an elegant yet cushioning flooring surface would be useful.
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.
