Customer Questions

Ask a Question
Can you recommend a cleaner for the tiles. Also, I have tire marks (brownish color) on the gray tiles that I can't get out. Any suggestions. Although I love the gray tiles with the black tiles around the perimeter I think I should have gotten all black tiles because it hides the dirt and discolorations better.
Darryl
Depending on what is causing the staining determines what you will want to use to clean them. If tar is causing the staining, then we suggest using Purple Power which can be purchased at a local retail outlet. If the tires are causing the staining, then the only solution would be to replace the grey tiles where your tires are parked with black tiles. To find the appropriate solution for your staining, we recommend contacting one of our Flooring Heroes via phone, chat or email and they will be able to assist you with your needs.
Can these tiles be glued down to concrete garage floor to prevent water from melting ice and snow seeping underneath tiles? Is there a better way to prevent this from happening?
John
You can glue our Coin Flex Nitro Tiles to a concrete floor. This will prevent water from penetrating to the concrete below. Another thing you can do is seal the floor with our Rubber Floor Finish and Sealer. This wax-based sealer would help prevent liquids from getting between the cracks.
Which floors are easier to roll a heavy toolbox on, coin pattern or diamond flex?
Susan Schiffhauer
Our easiest pattern to roll a heavy toolbox over is our smooth patterned tiles, but if you were comparing between our coin and diamond patterned tiles, there really is no difference. Both patterns will allow for heavy tool boxes to roll over them with virtual ease.
I live in Montana, and in the winter our vehicles get snow and ice on them and bring it into the garage where it sometimes melts onto the concrete floor. Would this be a problem for these tiles and is there a way to deal with this?
Water and other liquids are not a problem for our Coin Flex Nitro Tiles. These tiles are non-porous so the water would just flow over the tiles and out of your garage or to a drain. The water over time will evaporate, but if you want it out sooner, you can squeegee or use a blower to move the water out of your garage.
Are there edge pieces available for the Coin Flex Nitro Tiles to finish at the garage door opening?
Greg Rigos
We do offer a ramp for our Coin Flex Nitro Tiles that can be used at your garage door opening. These ramps can be ordered right on the product page.
Is there a trim piece that goes at the end of the run (like at the garage door) or do you have to trim off the "puzzle" pieces at the end or against the wall?
Doug French
You can either cut the teeth off or use our Rubber Floor Ramps.
If I spilled some oil, would it leak through on my concrete floor? How tight are those tiles to each other?
Prof Fomich
Our Coin Flex Nitro Tiles interlock very tightly and keep water and other liquids from penetrating the subsurface. There is always potential for water and other liquids to penetrate the flooring surface at the crack if there is some separation, but under normal conditions, water and other liquids would not.
I know on a garage floor cracks should be filled in but how about the expansions joints? Should they too be filled in so that the tiles don't flex and take the shape of the joints over time?
Joe
You will not need to fill in the expansion joints when installing our Coin Flex Nitro Tiles. You will need to keep those unfilled so that your subfloor properly expands and contracts throughout the day.
Which tiles are best if I need to cut them (for poles, other permanent structures in the middle of the room)?
Steven
Our Coin Flex Nitro Tiles are very easy to cut and can be easily cut with a sharp utility knife and a straight edge. That is the best way to cut these tiles.
Are these flexible enough for slight slopes in cement? Our garage slopes down towards the center. Also, how much noise do they make?
Kristin
Our Coin Flex Nitro Tiles are flexible enough to be installed over cement that has a slight slope in it. In regards to the noise, these tiles are some of our quietest garage floors we sell.
I may have missed it in the description however are Coin Flex Nitro Tiles carjack safe?
Rick
Our Coin Flex Nitro Tiles are car jack safe.
Can the Coin Flex Nitro Tiles be used in a garage with a wooden (plywood) floor?
Our Coin Flex Nitro Tiles can be installed in a garage over a plywood subfloor. These tiles can be installed over any subfloor that is hard and flat like concrete, asphalt, and plywood.
Would this be good for a woodworking shop? Can i install very heavy, 500lb plus machines on it?
Our Coin Flex Nitro Tiles would be great for a woodworking shop. These tiles are very durable and can handle having a 500 lb plus machine on them. If the machine is on the floor for a long period of time and has legs, there is potential for the equipment to leave impressions on the floor. These impressions may become permanent. To keep this from happening, we recommend placing furniture sliders under the equipment.
I have a drain in center of my garage floor. What is best way to handle this?
Greg
If you would like to keep your drain open, we recommend cutting a hole over the drain in the middle of one of our Coin Flex Nitro Tiles, or you can just not put a tile in the area of the drain.
How much weight would you say the Nitro Tiles can hold? Maximum capacity in lbs?
This garage tile has been weight tested using a vertical load of 11,000 lbs and afterwards had no visible structural damage.
Do they need to be glued down?
Doug stanley
Our Coin Flex Nitro Tiles are an interlocking tile and don't need to be glued or taped down.
Will a car jack damage this flooring?
Stacy
Our Coin Flex Nitro Tiles are car jack approved and will not be damaged by a floor jack being used on them. The only thing you will notice is an imprint where the car jack is being used.
I have a concrete floor. Over time it has cracked and so is not level. Will these come apart where they are snapped together at the bulges?
Jim Willett
Depending on how not level your floor is will determine how the tiles will interlock with each other. If your floor has very large peaks and valleys of more than a 1/4", then the tiles will not interlock properly and may come apart easily. If it's less than this, then the flooring should stay interlocked. For a floor that is that damaged, we recommend using a leveling compound on the concrete first and then installing the tiles. This will ensure that your new floor won't be damaged or come apart when driven over or used.
My dogs have access to my garage. Are these pet-friendly? My dogs wouldn't chew these up, but they might eat a rawhide or chew on a toy while on the service. Curious is that information is known?
David
Our Coin Flex Nitro Tiles are pet-friendly. They are non-toxic and have been tested. If you would like to receive the testing for these tiles, please feel free to reach out to one of our Flooring Heroes via email, phone, or chat.
Would these nitro tiles be suitable for use in my small kitchen?
peter wrona
Our Coin Flex Nitro Tiles are great as flooring in a kitchen. These tiles are slip resistant which is great if water or other liquids were to get spilled. Since they are non-porous, that means that anything that does get spilled will not seep to the subfloor below making for a floor that is very easy to clean and maintain. These tiles are also stain-resistant and will provide comfort underfoot which is great for any home chef. These tiles are mold and mildew resistant.
I have a moisture problem in my garage. Maybe sweaty garage syndrome. Will the tiles work in this situation?
Mike Marlin
You can install our Coin Flex Nitro Tiles in a garage with moisture issues. The moisture will not affect the tiles in any way. The moisture will collect under the tiles and when it drys it will leave a white substance behind. Do not be worried by this as it's not mold, but actually the salts that are coming up from the concrete. The salts can be easily cleaned off the tile with a mild soap and water solution in most instances. These salts will not affect the integrity of the tiles in any way.
Can individual tiles be replaced if damaged or stained?
Hank
Our Coin Flex Nitro Tiles are interlocking tiles and can be replaced if damaged or stained. All you would have to do it take a paint can opener or something similar at the interlock and pop the bad tile out and replace it with a brand new one.
I have an electric golf cart, will the battery acid spills damage the tile? What can I clean it with if I do drip acid?
George
Battery acid will not damage our Coin Flex Nitro Tiles. These tiles are resistant to most household and vehicle chemicals. If battery acid were to spill on the tiles, it can be cleaned up easily. You can use any appropriate cleaners to clean the acid off the flooring while not causing added contamination to the environment.
Will this flooring work with a 4 post car lift?
You can place a 4-post car lift on our Coin Flex Nitro Tiles. Our Coin Flex Nitro Tiles are also car jack approved.
Can this product be used outside around a pool?
Mike Mac
You can use our Coin Flex Nitro Tiles outside around a pool. These tiles are non-porous so they will not harbor any mold or mildew and are very easy to clean and maintain. Since these tiles have a button top pattern on them, they will provide ample slip resistance even when wet. The only thing that you will notice when using these garage tiles outdoors is that they will fade in direct sunlight over time.
What glue is recommended to install this product?
Mike
We don't recommend gluing our Coin Flex Nitro Tiles. These tiles are interlocking tiles, and when interlocked together are heavy enough to stay in place. If you still would like to glue them due to the way your driveway is set up or due to buckling issues, then we recommend using our polyurethane adhesive.
Will this affect the performance of my in floor heating system? I view it as an insulation barrier between my floor heat and the garage. Let me know your thoughts Thanks
Jeff Kirby
You are correct. When these tiles are installed over this type of system, you more than likely not get the full benefits of it as these tiles are non-porous and will keep most of the heat from transferring to the surface.
For my 20 x20 garage. The flex tiles sound best and are quiet. Will they stay together like the coin grid lock harder plastics.
Bill Kinyon
While these tiled do also interlock, they have a different interlocking system that the harder tiles, due to the thickness and composition of the tile construction.
Are these tile heat resistance? Will hot tire melt or leave stain on tiles?
The tiles will not melt underneath a hot tire. Some performance tires do have the possibility of staining colored tiles and in that situation we recommend choosing black 'runway' tiles for where your tires will drive over.
So these tiles respond well to being used with Jack stands? Some stands can have rather thin feet. I am worried they would cut the tile.
Evan
We have not been notified from any of our customers that any jack stands cut their tiles.
Having muddy-water stains to remove. I haven't seen any questions regarding what type of "Cleaner" is recommended?
Alan
Periodic damp mopping of the garage tiles with a mild soap and water mixture. Some soaps commonly used include Dawn dish detergent and/or Tide laundry detergent.
Could these tiles be used on a basement floor.
Yvon Lemieux
Yes, most definitely!
