Industrial Flooring Using PVC Tile or Mats: PVC tiles and mats are not just for residential garages! When purchased in the proper grade, roll out flooring from Better Life Technology and our Premium PVC Garage Floor Tiles make outstanding industrial flooring.
Depending on the application, the installation method may vary slightly from the standard garage flooring method. While adhesive is generally not necessary in the garage, it is often required when the use of forklifts, pallet jacks and other heavy equipment will be used.
Its really not the weight that is an issue. Forklifts and pallet jacks concentrate all of their mass on one area and have a very small turn radius. While not typical, this can cause mats to bunch or cause tiles to separate.
Just like with residential garages, industrial and commercial installations require close attention to expansion and contraction. As a general rule of thumb the larger the area being covered, the bigger the gap needs to be between the flooring and any walls or posts.
