Ask a Question
Are Eco Soft mats made from Rubber? Do they contain Flame Retardants, Formamide or PVC? Please send the MSDS so I can see what's in it before purchasing.
Our Eco-Soft + tiles are made with EVA foam. No rubber is used in the making of these tiles. All of our foam tiles are tested regularly and contain no hazardous materials or allergens. That means our tiles are formamide, phthalate, PVC, and flame retardant free. To get testing for our foam tiles, please feel free to reach out to one of our Floor Heroes and they can email it to you.
How do these mats lay over carpet? Its not a real high pile carpet. I was Just wondering do they slide or come apart or when you step on one does it go lower than the other.
Our Eco-Soft + tiles work great over carpet. In most instances, you will not have any issues with separation or with the tiles sliding around. The only time separation may happen when the carpet is a high pile carpet. If the tiles were to move for any reason, you could use a little double sided tape underneath the tiles.
I am looking for something that has some kind of grip on the bottom so it won't slide around.
Our Eco-Soft + tiles are made of closed-celled EVA foam and have a smooth bottom surface. Because these tiles have a smooth bottom surface, during certain movements these tiles can move. We recommend the use of a double sided tape to help prevent this. For a product that is more slip resistant, we do offer a wide range of rubber tiles that will stay in place during many different types of exercises. Our most popular tile for home gyms is our 8mm Strong Rubber Tiles.
Can the premium soft tiles and eco soft tiles + be used together and if not, is there a red option at all for the soft tiles?
Our Eco-Soft + Tiles and Premium Soft Tiles can not be interlocked together. For a true red, we recommend purchasing our Rainbow Play Mats.
Will this interlock with the set of rainbow mats?
Our Eco-Soft + will interlock with our Rainbow Play Mats, but the thickness will not be the same.
Are Eco-Soft + a good choice for a daycare center?
Our Eco-Soft + tiles are a great choice for a daycare center and are one of our most popular tiles used in them.
Can this be installed over vinyl flooring?
Our 1/2" Eco-Soft + tiles can be installed over vinyl flooring.
I bought the 1/2" Eco-Soft foam tiles for my grandkids room and placed carpet foam for extra protection when the fall, would this make the foam tiles buckle up since they are not in contact with the cement foundation? Other than that, we love the look and feel of these tiles!
Adding a carpet pad under our 1/2" Eco-Soft + tiles will not cause them to buckle. As long as the pad is not too thick, you shouldn't have any issues with separation.
Where are these tiles made?
Our 1/2" Eco-Soft + Tiles are made of a closed celled EVA foam.
Can these be used outdoors in a screened gazebo 24/7? using it as child's play area. how long do you think it would take for them to degrade outdoors?
Our 1/2" Eco-Soft + Tiles can be installed in a screened in gazebo. These tiles have been used for this type of application successfully and have lasted for 2+ years in this type of installation.
Are the foam tiles safe for hardwood floors?
Our 1/2" Eco-Soft + Tiles are safe to use over hardwood floors.
Do I have to install these over carpet or are they thick enough to install straight over the sub flooring?
We recommend installing these tiles over a flat subfloor and not a high pile carpet.
What makes them "eco"? The name says eco but the description is exactly the same as several other interlocking foam mats that don't title as "eco". Please tell me what the difference is? As far as I can tell these are all closed-cell EVA foam. Thank you.
The "Eco" in our 1/2" Eco-Soft + tiles stands for economy. These are our most basic foam tiles and are not as polished as our other foam tiles. So if you are looking for a good deal on a foam tile, this product is the one for you.
Can this withstand a kid (under 75 LBS.) riding a bike on it?
We don't recommend riding a bike over our Eco-Soft + tiles, but you could ride a bike over the tiles. Over time, they will wear and will need to be replaced.
I have a treadmill and total gym that I want to put on the foam tiles. Will they hold up to that?
You can use our 1/2" Eco-Soft + under a treadmill or total gym, but they will indent from the weight of the equipment. To help alleviate this issue, we recommend placing furniture sliders under the machines.
I bought these tiles in 2015 and need more. Just so I'm clear, this note indicates that this won't work with my previous purchase, correct? "These tiles will not interlock with our Eco-Soft Tiles - 2015."
Any Eco-Soft tile bought before 2015 will interlock with our Eco-Soft + tiles, but will not be the same thickness. If you need further tiles to expand your flooring, please feel free to contact one our Flooring Heroes, and they will be more than happy to assist you with expanding your flooring.
Could I put a wooden table and chairs on this? When I pulled the chairs out to sit on them, would they end up snagging on the seams between tiles?
You can put a table and chairs on top of our Eco-Soft + Tiles. If you do put furniture on these tiles, you will see indentations where the furniture has sat. To prevent this, we recommend placing furniture sliders under any heavy furniture. You won't typically be able to slide chairs in and out on these tiles. With furniture sliders, you would be able to. If you don't use them, we recommend picking the chairs up and moving them out before trying to sit in them.
Is foam flooring good on a cement floor under a ping pong table?
You can install our Eco-Soft + tiles under a ping pong table over concrete. The weight of the ping pong table will create indentations in the flooring. To prevent this, we recommend placing furniture sliders under the legs of the table. These tiles will help to insulate any room they are installed in and will also provide comfort underfoot.
Are these tiles formaldehyde free?
Our 1/2" Eco-Soft + Tiles do not contain formaldehyde.
Does the 1/2" eco-soft + product meet Class A flame spread ratings to be suitable for use in commercial construction? We are interested in installing this in a medical office.
Our 1/2" Eco-Soft + Tiles are not technically considered flooring, so they are not tested in the same way as other materials are tested for flammability. For a toy, they passed the testing requirements set forth under 16 CFR 1500.3(c)(6)(vi), Flammability of Solids.
Hi, I have a home gym with free weights (barbell, rack, steel plates, etc.). Does this flooring provide a soft feel when standing on it? Example: if you were doing squats with a heavy bar would your feet shift slightly or is the foam fairly stiff? (in comparison to rubber tiles)
Our Eco-Soft + tiles are very comfortable underfoot. They are made out of foam so that they would be soft. We don't recommend using these in an area where squats would be performed because they will depress underfoot and could shift slightly causing a risk of injury. If you would like a product that is more suitable for this, please feel free to check out some rubber flooring options on RubberFlooringInc.
Can these tiles be used in my garage?
If cars will be driving in and out of your garage over out Eco-Soft + Tiles, then they would not be the recommended floor. If the garage is more of a play space or extra room, then these tiles would work perfectly. People have used these tiles as garage flooring, but over time the tiles start to tear and breakdown and separate quite often from the torque caused by driving in and out of a garage.
Would these 1/2" Eco-Soft+ tiles interlock with any of the interlocking carpet tiles. I have a basement gym and would like to use black Eco-Soft+ tiles under the gym equipment but have carpet elsewhere surrounding it.
Our 1/2" Eco-Soft + tiles will not interlock with any of our soft carpet tiles.
Will mold and/or mildew grow under these tiles if used in basement over concrete? When we have heavy rains, the concrete gets a little damp.
Mold and mildew can grow underneath any surface in the right conditions. We would recommend sealing the concrete / putting a vapor barrier to reduce moisture from coming up through and getting trapped underneath the floor. Otherwise, the interlocking design of the Eco-Soft tiles make it easy to pull up while allowing drying time.
