GridFlex Pro by Flexspec is a popular brand of interlocking floor tiles that are commonly used in residential and commercial spaces. These tiles are designed to provide a durable, easy-to-install flooring solution that can be customised to fit a variety of different spaces. In this article, we will take a closer look at how GridFlex Pro tiles are made and what makes them such a popular choice among homeowners and business owners alike.
The Materials Used to Make These Garage Floor Tiles
GridFlex Pro tiles are made from a blend of high-quality polymers that are specifically designed to provide excellent durability and resilience. The polymers used in these garage floor tiles are engineered to withstand a variety of environmental factors, including UV radiation, extreme temperatures, and exposure to chemicals and oils.
In addition to the polymers, GridFlex Pro tiles also contain a variety of other materials that help to enhance their performance. For example, the tiles feature a unique ribbed design that helps to increase their strength and resistance to impact. They also include a non-slip surface that helps to reduce the risk of slips and falls, even in wet or slippery conditions.

The Manufacturing Process for our Garage Floor Tiles
The manufacturing process for GridFlex Pro tiles is complex and involves several steps, each of which is critical to producing high-quality, durable flooring tiles.
1. Raw Material Preparation
The first step in the manufacturing process is to prepare the raw materials that will be used to make the tiles. This involves blending the polymers and other additives together in precise proportions to create the desired consistency and properties. Read more What is Polypropylene?
Once the raw materials have been prepared, they are fed into an extruder machine. The extruder is a large machine that uses heat and pressure to melt the polymers and force them through a die, creating a long, continuous strip of material.
3. Cooling and Cutting
The extruded material is then cooled and cut into smaller sections, which will later be moulded into the individual GridFlex Pro tiles. This process is critical to ensure that the material is the correct size and shape before it is moulded.
After the extruded material has been cut into sections, it is ready to be moulded into the individual GridFlex Pro tiles. This is done using our specialised injection moulding machine, which uses high pressure and heat to mould the material into the desired shape and size.
Once the tiles have been moulded, they are removed from the injection moulding machine and undergo a series of finishing processes to ensure they are of the highest quality. This includes trimming off any excess material, smoothing the edges, and applying any necessary surface treatments or coatings.
