Won’t crack or chip and are virtually indestructible.
Because it’s rubber, it has excellent anti-slip properties.
Similar in direct sunlight to concrete or brick paving stone. The darker the color the more it retains heat – black being the hottest
Manufactured with low VOC (volatile organic compound) ingredients. Since each rubber granule is encapsulated, it does not off-gas.
1/2″ to 1″ tiles are best cut with a utility knife using a straight edge as a guide. Score and bend the cut seam until through.
2″ tiles can be trimmed with a reciprocating saw.
Manufactured with UV stabilizers, allowing the color to hold. Minimal fading the first year; gradually fades evenly afterward.
Pressure wash or hose. Shovel with plastic blade or snow blower. Not affected by de-icing products.
Neither is required for our full interlocking designs as the product can be installed over a leveled and compacted sub-base.
If the installation is over concrete or wood, gluing is recommended to prevent movement. For our under/overlap link system tiles.
It is recommended these tiles be both glued and fastened together. Doing so will mitigate expansion, contraction, and movement.
Our resurfacing tiles – covering existing concrete or wood – must be glued down. As there is a solid base below, 1/2″ thick product will suffice.
Gluing down will mitigate expansion, contraction, and movement.
Yes, first off this product does not require any filling materials between seams as our proprietary interlocking.
Or overlap design fits tight in all directions and prevents any lateral separation.
Eco-flex® large format tiles have tighter seams which mean less erosion of the sub-base and a reduction from plant growth underneath.
Or the embedding of airborne seed planting in the gaps.
The subgrade for our products would be the same as for interlocking brick, asphalt, or concrete. No specialized treatment required.
Our eco-flex® products come in tile formats, ranging from 4 sq.ft. Per unit up to 105 sq.ft. Per unit.
Yes, all wheeled implements including walkers, strollers, and even pedestrians with canes.
Have easy access when using these surfaces due to the non-slip, sure-footed characteristics, even when wet.
The density of this rubber surface allows for spray paint to be power washed away if done so within a few days.
As the surface is not porous, gum will not as readily stick to the surface and can also be power washed away.
The density also provides durability against knives for carving initials, etc.
As for theft or vandalism due to removal, the sections are quite heavy and not that easy to access or lift once installed.
It would be as cumbersome as stealing interlocking pavers. As for burning, the product is fire rated and will not ignite on the surface.
Since eco-flex® products are manufactured from recycled tires, it takes on the same durability characteristics as a tire.
It takes a long period of time for tires to disintegrate. Since eco-flex® products are 97% tire rubber our products will last for many years.
