View and Print The Gladiator Getting Started Guide
Interested in creating an upscale look for your garage floor that will turn the biggest room in your home into a real showplace? Gladiator® Tile Floor Covering is your answer. In addition to covering cracked or stained garage floors without the preparation and hassle of messy liquid coatings, Gladiator® Tile Floor Covering provides a clean looking and durable surface capable of holding heavy vehicles. The tiles are part of a complete flooring system that also includes flow-through Drain Tiles to allow access to floor drains as well as Edge Trim pieces that create a finishing touch. The 1 ft. x 1 ft. tiles are engineered to handle the temperature extremes of the garage, resist common chemicals found in the garage, and snap together easily allowing custom designs such as checkerboard patterns and borders in both under-vehicle and wall-to-wall applications. So you know that it is a Gladiator® product, the floor tiles come in the same signature Tread Plate pattern that adorns the fronts of our cabinets and appliances for a coordinated family look. The optional Edge Trim pieces connect directly to the tiles to complete the look and to provide a smooth transition from the driveway. The tiles are offered in both 4 packs and 48 packs to accommodate any size job (allowing you to complete your floor without having to purchase a lot more tiles than necessary).
- UL Classified For Fire and Slip Resistance
Gladiator® Tile Floor Covering is investigated for resistance to fire and is UL Classified in accordance with ASTM E-648 (Standard method for Critical Radiant Flux of floor covering systems using a radiant heat source). Gladiator® Tile Floor Covering is also UL Classified for slip resistance.
- Holds Heavy Vehicles
The durable tiles hold heavy vehicles and have a weight capacity rating of 250 lbs. per square inch.
- Stain Resistant Material
The premium grade material resists stains from common garage spills including: gasoline, motor oil, anti-freeze, brake fluid, petroleum grease, bleach, lacquer thinner, and common herbicides and insecticides.
- Installs Without Adhesives
The interlocking mechanism used to connect the tiles keep the tiles firmly in place on the floor without the need for adhesives.
- Under-Vehicle or Wall-to-Wall Installation
Tiles can be placed under vehicles for partial floor coverage or wall-to-wall for full floor coverage.
- Installs Easily and Quickly
Wall to wall installation in most two car garages takes only a few hours. Under-vehicle and single stall installations snap together even more quickly with just a rubber mallet. Unlike epoxy and paint, complicated cleaning and preparation, multiple coatings, and curing time between coats and prior to initial use are not required (the floor covering can also be driven on immediately after installation).
- Covers Cracks and Stains
Quickly hides unsightly cracks, stains, and chipped or peeling paint. Unlike thin coatings, floor tiles will not crack when new surface cracks in the concrete appear.
- Non-Porous Surface Prevents New Stains on Concrete
The non-porous and stain resistant floor tile material helps protect porous concrete floors from new stains.
- Easy to Clean In or Out of the Garage
The tiles can be cleaned in the garage or, if desired, separated into large sections and moved out to the driveway for a thorough cleaning.
- Slip Resistant Tread Plate Pattern
The tread plate pattern matches the family look of other Gladiator® components and provides a slip resistant surface that also allows Gladiator® modules with caster to roll smoothly.
- Removable and Transportable
Unlike permanent coatings, the tile floor covering system can be removed and transported for use elsewhere should you move to a new home.
- Easily Repaired If Damaged
Simply swap out only the damaged tiles should replacement become necessary.
