PVC Vs Rigid Tiles
Unlike polypropylene tiles, this PVC tile is not hollow. At about four pounds apiece, this is a heavyweight product that creates an ultra-quiet system. All locks are hidden. The lower part of the tile has a T-Lock system while the upper portion has a zipper-lock – just like the bags you use in the kitchen. The T Locks keep the tile locked even under extreme pressure horizontally while the zipper lock stops fluids and debris from penetrating.
Tuff seal tiles are good for applications where a waterproof or near waterproof installation is critical and in certain commercial and industrial applications. For most garages, we suggest rigid garage floor tiles combined with landscape fabric for noise. For applications with a heavy-duty applications where tire stains are not of huge consequence, PVC may foot the bill. That leaves you with three choices:
- Tuff Seal: This product. The most expensive and typically used in applications over basements and other instances where a near water-proof application is desired.
- TrueLock PVC: Our most affordable, industrial, American Made PVC tile.
- Norsk PVC: Uniquely attractive and functional. Considerably more flexible with a ‘softer’ feel than most PVC. Also good for combined garage/workout applications.
Attractive with Unique Adhesive Options
Tuff Seal interlocking tiles require no adhesive*, leave no mess and demand little if any floor preparation. They are available in 12 stunning colors and three attractive patterns. An adhesive is included for attaching the edging to the tile. A second adhesive is available, but not required, for gluing the tile together. This is typically only used in applications where a water-proof install is desired.

While Tuff Seal is a top-of-the-line PVC garage tile, we understand that not every application requires this product. We offer a wide selection of garage floor tiles, other garage flooring products, and our less expensive True Lock PVC Garage Tile. We Highly recommend Hilway Direct Plus Floor Finish & Cleaner with EVERY Tuff Seal purchase.
