How Important Is The Locking System on a Garage Floor Tile
In the world of hard plastic garage floor tiles, the locking system is incredibly important. How do you think the name TrueLock came about?Â Let’s face it. Most of the products are made from the same basic raw materials and they are all designed to do the same thing. If you weld on them they will all melt and if you beat them with a hammer (yes we tried) they will all dent. The locking system is what keeps the tile together and it is what keeps them from separating when you drive on it.
There are a lot of cheap tiles from China that have terrible locking systems. Although we would love to sell a tile for $2.00 / Sq.Ft. , we are simply not willing to take the risk on quality.
On the other end there are claims of ‘patented’ locking systems from one major manufacturer that in our opinion are a little exaggerated. The same basic locking system has been used by modular tile manufacturers for decades. Each has their own little twist, but in at least two cases you can take two ‘fierce competitors’ and lock their tiles together.
We have deliberately worked with multiple manufacturers so we are not tied to one. This means that we do not have to claim ‘this brand is the best’ because we offer more than one. Each and every brand has a place. We have gone to several manufacturers so that we can offer you the best fit in each and every price point. We are committed to telling you how it is and what will work best for you.
