Dimensions

MotoLock tiles exact dimensions are 510 x 510 x 7mm.

For estimation purposes, to take account of the interlock, we use the dimensions 495 x 495 x 7mm.
Use our tile estimator tool which works out quickly and easily how many tiles you will need for your floor size.

Is any special preparation required before laying the tiles?

Sweep the floor. Oil and other contaminants can be ignored except where it may be necessary to glue tiles / ramps.

Minor floor irregularities can be ignored: deeper potholes will show as imprints / depressions on the tile but won't damage it. Either fill these potholes with screed before laying tiles or do it later by lifting any tile(s) affected by floor irregularities.

Any Special Tools Needed?

A rubber hammer makes laying easier but otherwise basic DIY tools are all you need.

How can I finish the floor edges?

Leave a 5mm gap along walls and fit MotoLock edge ramps to the entrance.

Can damaged tiles be replaced?

Yes - one of the advantages of interlocking tiles is easy tile replacement or swapping.

Is the floor slippery?

The floor has a nice sheen when clean but it is designed (and tested) to be highly non-slip.

Does water get trapped under the tiles?

The interlock stops most water penetration. Any water that does gets under the tile will evaporate as the tile is has an air flow design on the underside that 'breathes'.

Are the tiles resistant to oils and chemicals?

The tiles are resistant to most oils and acids but a tile sample should be tested if this is a critical requirement.
(See Properties table below).

Is the floor flammable?

The floor is classed as difficult-to-ignite due to its chemical composition.

Do the tiles insulate?

The tiles act as thermal and acoustic insulation.

Any special maintenance needed?

A mop, bucket and mild detergent are all you need for light cleaning. For heavier cleaning use standard non-abrasive, non-slip, non-solvent based products.
