Step 1

Step 1

Give your floor a thorough sweep to clear any dust, dirt or loose objects. This initial step ensures your floor is as clear as possible in preparation for the installation.
Step 2

Step 2

Place your first floor tile down with one of either the pegged or looped sides facing your garage door (depending on if you’re using male or female ramp edges). The other pegged side can go either side unless you have another doorway to the side of your garage. In this case make sure you face the other pegged side to the other doorway.

Step 3

Step 3

Lay down your next tile the same way round as your first. Overlap the pegged side of your second tile onto the looped edge of the first and gently secure in place using a rubber mallet or press it down with your hand using your weight. Repeat the process until you have 2 or 3 rows of tiles across the width of your garage.

Step 4

Step 4

Take your ramp sections and interlock them to the front row of floor tiles closest to your garage door. With your garage door closed, push your rows of tiles towards the inside of the door leaving a 5-10mm gap for clearance. Using the width of your garage, roughly centre your tiles on the floor in preparation for the next step.
Step 5

Step 5

Measure the remaining gap either side between the edge of the tiles and your garage walls. Move your tiles left or right until you have an even gap either side. Double check your garage door closes properly. If it doesn’t, just move your tiles away slightly ensuring you still have an even gap either side to your garage walls.
Step 6

Step 6

Continue laying full tiles throughout your garage, making sure every tile is positioned and secured in place the same way round as you started. For example, facing your garage door from the inside, if you started with the pegs to the top and right of each floor tile, make sure you continue positioning your tiles in this way.
Step 7

Step 7

Now you have all your full tiles laid, you need to fill in the surrounding areas. All of our tiles can be cut using an electrical saw such as a jigsaw, circular saw or table saw. We recommend using a fine toothed blade for a better cut and finish. When cutting your tiles it is important to leave an expansion gap of at least 5mm on all cuts. Measure each gap required and mark the tile accordingly using one of our tile marking pens or your own marker pen. Fill in and secure all your cut tiles in place using a rubber mallet.

Step 8

Now your entire flooring is laid and complete, it’s time to give it a quick clean to remove any dust created in the installation process. NOW YOU ARE READY TO ENJOY YOUR NEW FLOORING!
