Install Guide

PREMIUM 1" MMA

Take the mats out of the boxes, lay them out and press the teeth together.  They will not separate under normal and even very aggressive use.

Typically no adhesive or other steps are needed for this product.  If you are putting this in the middle of a room, the product may shift a little if you are doing aggressive actions on them.  Much like would happen with any rug or mat freely located in a room.  Cut to fit as needed with a razor knife.

PREMIUM 3/8" MULTI-USE / WOOD GRAIN

Most installation simply require laying the product down and connecting the sides like a very simple puzzle.  Most people also use the textured side up, but the back can be used if desired.  The border pieces snap on just like the main tiles.  The mats can also be cut to fit easily with a razor knife or even sharp scissors.  Over a many tile span, there will be a small loss in size due to the overlap of the teeth.  If you are needing to cover an exact dimension, ensure you are buying more and cutting to fit.

In some cases we recommend duct tape on the back of the seams to provide additional rigidity to the product, for example in some martial arts application where people are being very aggressive on the mats.  Sometimes an adhesive is recommended like GOOP or Liquid Nails to affix tiles to the ground when more permanence and low shift are required.  

Gluing is required if your application entails a great deal of aggressive activity, a large area, or if you are installing in a wall-to-wall location.

Recommended Gluing Technique:

The best installation is to get buckets of adhesive, like Liquid Nails, and trowel it on like the normal setting of tiles.  Do not glue the teeth area in case you need to pull up a tile later. Cut to fit as needed with a razor knife.

Secondary Gluing method:

1. Glue a large square on the back, do not glue the teeth
2. Glue an X from corner to corner,
ensure the bead of glue is no less than 1/4" - 3/8"
3.  Install mat on floor and allow adhesive to dry 24 hours before using

 

Using this method allows for full coverage, stability, and ease of replacement if necessary
