SWISSTRAX garage floor installation
The installation of your SWISSTRAX garage floor is extremely easy. These floor tiles are clipped to each other by a simple touch of the hand. Installation can be done by yourself (DIY). No specific tools required.
A puzzle installation
Start by cleaning your original floor so that there is no dust or objects that can interfere with the installation. Sweep and vacuum your floor.
Install your first row of tile in front of your garage door from left to right (When you stand inside your garage and look at your garage door).
Attach the edges to this first row of tile, making sure your garage door closes properly. A space of 5 / 10mm between the tiles and your wall is necessary (depending on the importance of your project), in order to let the floor work during any hot weather. The tiles are made of polypropylene and can relax during hot weather. Natural phenomenon of dilation very infrequent with Ribtrax tiles perforated but possible during very hot season.
Your garage floor installation is always done from the entrance of your garage to end in the bottom of your garage.
After installing your first row of tiles and edges, repeat the process until you reach the back of your garage.
If you need to adjust your tiles dimensions, you will simply have to make cuts. The cuts are very simple, use a jigsaw or circular saw. The cuts are always made against the walls or against any non-movable objects.
No gluing or joints to be made, the Swisstrax tiles are directly placed on your floor.
