Customer Questions

Ask a Question
I want to use this product in an enclosed trailer, can these tiles be glued to the wood flooring?
Our Eco-Lock Rubber Tiles can be glued to a wood floor. The glue you will want to use is our Polyurethane Glue. This glue ensures a tight bond between the rubber flooring and the wood flooring.
The eco-lock tiles say the size is 24x24, but 25x25 if you count the edge pieces. Does that mean that each edge piece adds a half inch? In other words, if I am only using the edge on one side, would the tile measure 24.5 inches across?
The edge pieces actually are an inch thick. The edging is only on two sides of the tile. So when they are added to the tiles, they will add an inch to two sides of the tile making the tiles 25" x 25".
I am placing rubber tiles over a newly installed laminate floor in the basement - will the rubber tile ruin the finish on the laminate? Should I use any type of barrier between laminate and tiles to protect the new floor?
You can install our Eco-Lock Rubber Tiles over laminate flooring without it staining or ruining the finish to your laminate flooring. No barrier is required.
If you are ordering say 20 tiles does each tile come with edge pieces or do you have to cut each one?
Every Eco-Lock Rubber Tile comes with two removable edge piece.
I want to use these for an outdoor (uncovered) gym floor on my patio. I live in a very moderate climate with no snow and little rain. Will these be ok for this use?
You can install our Eco-Lock Rubber Tiles outdoors. These tiles are resistant to mold and mildew growth and are very easy to clean and maintain. Since these tiles are not UV stable, they will fade in direct sunlight over time.
How hard are these to clean? How do you clean them?
James Rutledge
Our Eco-Lock Rubber Tiles are very easy to clean and maintain. To clean any large dirt or debris, you can sweep them or use a vacuum without the brush attachment. For cleaning stuck on dirt and debris, we recommend mopping the flooring with a synthetic mop with a mild soap and water solution or using our Rubber Floor Cleaner and Degreaser. After the flooring has been mopped, all you would need to do is let the flooring air dry.
How do I order the borders for rubber interlocking tiles? One side is straight and the other has the interlocking cut-outs.
You don't have to order any corner or border tiles with our Eco-Lock Rubber Tiles as these tiles come with removable edges that allow you to turn any tile into a corner, border, or center tile. You will just need to order the number of tiles you will need to cover you space.
If installed over hardwood floors will it mark the floors.
Our Eco-Lock Rubber Tiles will not mark up wood floors. If you are concerned that they will, you can place a plastic sheet between the wood and rubber flooring to ensure it won't.
I will be installing this floor on a below-grade (basement) concrete slab. Is any sort if underlayment recommended? If so, what type?
Todd Battaglia
For our Eco-Lock Rubber Tiles, and underlayment is not required. You can add an underlay if you like. You can use rubber underlayment, foam underlayment, or cork underlay.
Will these work as well for gym flooring in terms of heavy compound lifting, traction, etc, as normal rubber flooring?
Our Eco-Lock Rubber Tiles have been installed in both commercial and home gyms. These tiles are very durable and can withstand any normal lifting exercises.
How many tiles are in a case?
Our Eco-Lock Rubber Tiles are not sold by the case, so you can order as many tiles as are needed to cover your space.
Can rubber tiles be placed over carpet?
You can install our Eco-Lock Rubber Tiles over a low pile commercial carpet very easily. If you have high pile carpet with a thick pad, these tiles will not perform as well. This is due to the pad under the carpet getting depressed. This can cause the tiles to separate a bit causing a potential tripping hazard.
Is this tile cuttable so that I can form them around stationery items?
Our Eco-Lock Rubber Tiles are very easy to cut with a sharp utility knife and a straight edge.
Are the Eco-Lock Rubber tiles vulcanized or non-vulcanized?
John O'Neil
Our Eco-Lock Rubber Tiles are not vulcanized.
Can these tiles be installed in a sauna? As we live in New England, the concrete floor conducts cold from the ground and outside and can be extremely cold in the winter.
Our Eco-Lock Rubber Tiles can be installed in a sauna. Since these tiles are made from rubber, they are very slip-resistant and even more so when wet. These tiles are also resistant to mold and mildew and are very easy to clean. When installing these tiles, you will want to leave about a 1/4" perimeter gap around the floor for expansion and contraction.
How bad is the smell with these tiles? Is the smell a toxic release of VOC in the air? I am wanting to install in a basement gym with no windows and poor ventilation. Will this cause an odor throughout my basement and house?
Our Eco-Loc Rubber Tiles will have a slight rubber smell when you first receive them. The rubber smell is not toxic and can be mitigated pretty easily. We recommend mopping the floor with a mild soap and water solution with a synthetic mophead and letting the flooring air dry. You will want to make sure that the room where the flooring will be installed is well ventilated. If you have no windows, fans are a great alternative. If you are very sensitive to smells, you may have to repeat this process a few times.
Can you put the tiles on top of a damp cement garage floor?
Our Eco-Loc Rubber Tiles can be installed over a damp cement garage floor. The moisture will not damage the tiles at all. The only thing you will notice is that a white material will collect under the tiles when the water drys. This is not mold but salts from the concrete. This is easily cleaned with a mild soap and water solution.
Are they phthalate-free?
Phthalates or any other hazardous metals or chemicals are not used to make our Eco-Lock Rubber Tiles.
I have been given conflicting information from two of your customer service people. I would like to use this in an enclosed and finished garage area as a shock absorbing dog training and human exercise floor. Additionally, the room would occasionally be used as a bonus/game room, and I will want to pull my late model car into the area a few times a year in hurricane season. The car shouldn't drip anything but water. One person said I can drive on it, another said I will ruin the tiles if I do. Can you please advise? Person # 2 is suggesting a garage tile that is a rubber/plastic combo, but it is only 1/4" and I am concerned about shock absorption and slippage.
You can install our Eco-Lock Rubber Tiles in a garage. We typically don't recommend using them in an area where cars will go in and out on a daily basis, but in instances where a car will go in and out occasionally, they will work just fine. As long as no oil hits the flooring, there would be no issues with parking or driving a car over them. Since these are interlocking tiles and are a floating floor, there is potential for the tiles to move and come up when a car drives over them especially when the wheels are turned.
Can I install these in a commercial gym?
Our Eco-Lock Rubber Tiles can be installed in a commercial gym.
I'm interested in putting these tiles in my garage for a home gym. I saw a comment about the 1/4" size is best for residential use. Does that include the garage as well? Thanks for the clarification.
Yes, our Eco-Lock Rubber Tiles would be good for a garage gym. It all just depends on what types of exercises you are performing as to what type of product and thickness would work best.
If I cut all the tabs off of all sides of a tile, what is the size of the remaining tile? Is it 22” x 22” or 23” x 23”? Thank you
If you cut the tabs off of our Eco-Lock Rubber Tiles, the size of the tile would be 23" x 23".
I'd like to install rubber over PVC tiles in my garage gym. I will use it for a kickboxing bag. The mats wouldn't be installed floor-to-floor. How grippy is the rubber - would the mats furl/slip over the PVC tiles when I'm kickboxing? (Even if weighted with the boxing bag)?
You can install our Eco-Lock Rubber Tiles over an existing PVC Tile floor in a garage gym. The tiles will not slip around when being used if installed wall-to-wall. There is potential for tiles to move with certain lateral exercises if not installed wall-to-wall. In these instances, we recommend using some double-sided tape or glue to keep the tiles in place.
