Customer Questions

Ask a Question
I have a floor drain in my garage and the floor slopes slightly towards it. Will this be an issue when installing?
Our Vented Ecotrax Tiles were designed to allow water to drain through the tiles to a drain or out of the garage, so having a drain in your garage where there is a slight slope will not cause any issues when installing these garage tiles.
Will the interlocking tiles fade if used in an outdoor setting for 6 month?
Our Vented Ecotrax Tiles are UV stable, so they will be fade resistant when installed in direct sunlight.
Are these compatible with the Swisstrax RibTrax - the only difference as far as measurements go is that these will be a bit lower?
Our Vented Ecotrax Tiles can be interlocked with Swisstrax's RibTrax tiles.
Can the Vented Ecotrax Tiles withstand the weight of a Kenworth or Peterbilt tractor?
Our Vented Ecotrax Tiles can withstand the weight of a Kenworth or Peterbilt Tractor. These tiles have a rolling weight of up to 60,000 lbs.
Are the squares 15.75" once installed, or does the 15.75" also include the locking, so the square is more like 15"?
Our Vented Ecotrax Tiles are 15.75" installed and not. Even though these tiles are interlocking tiles, the tabs are not included in the actual size of the tile.
Will mold form as I live in the Northeast. Snow melting and staying under the tile?
Our Vented Ecotrax Tiles are mold and mildew resistant.
Does it get slick with snow on it?
Our Vented Ecotrax Tiles are vented, so any liquid that falls on the surface will fall through the vents to the subfloor below. These tiles will be less slip-resistant when wet than when dry, but they are still more slip-resistant than our standard non-vented garage tiles when wet.
Will these tiles warp in the direct sunlight like on a deck?
Helen Loomis
Our Vented Ecotrax Tiles will not warp in direct sunlight on a deck. These tiles are UV stable and are made to withstand some of the harshest conditions. These tiles are very easy to clean and maintain and are resistant to mold and mildew growth. The only thing you will notice when installed outdoors is that they will expand and contract with the heating and cooling of the day.
Are the Ecotrax Tiles UV treated?
Our Vented Ecotrax Tiles are UV treated, making them UV stable.
Can you use a floor jack or coasters on the floor?
We don't recommend using a floor jack directly on our Vented Ecotrax Tiles, as the pressure of the jack while in use can damage the tiles. If you want to use a car jack on our tiles, we recommend placing a plywood board or a steel plate under the jack to displace the amount of pressure is put on any one-tile. Chair casters can be used on this floor easily.
Are these tiles interlocking? Do I need a rubber mallet to install properly? Do I need a ceramic tile cutter or will another type cutter suffice?
Yes the tiles are interlocking and you can use a rubber mallet gently to install them. You can use a tile cutter or a power saw with a fine-toothed blade and put the trimmed tiles into place.
What is "rolling weight" and how does it differ from static weight?
Since garage tiles are designed to be floating/interlocked together without being adhered to the subfloor beneath, it is important to understand weight limits of the tile. Rolling load or rolling weight refers to the movement of substantial weight across a floor. Static load or static weight refers to a substantial amount of stationary weight stored on a floor. These weights are typically listed in quantity measurement Per Square Inch, example: 60,000 lbs PSI. If these weight limits are exceeded, this can cause serious damage to your floor that cannot be fixed without being replaced. You can typically disperse the weight of heavy static loads be using a minimum 1/2" plywood board that is cut to size of the base of the load.
