Flexi-Tile is designed to be easily installed on damaged, uneven or cracked concrete/epoxy surfaces. We have a Flexi-Tile installation guide available to help get you started on laying your interlocking floor tiles, whether its for a domestic, commercial or industrial flooring project.
We advise that Flexi-Tiles are laid in areas that have an ambient temperature between 16°C-24°C. In rooms where under-floor heating is going to be used, the heating MUST be turned on and allowed to reach a warm temperature (at least 20°C) before you install the floor.
When your tiles arrive, you will need to allow them to acclimatise for up to 24 hours. If you are in a rush, you can dismantle the pallet and lay the tiles out to help them acclimatiser quicker.
Installation should not take place at temperatures below 15ºC or above 30ºC
PLEASE NOTE: If installation has to take place at a temperature below 15ºC, leave a larger expansion gap between the tiles and any fixed point and / or incorporate an expansion gap in the floor every 8 to 10 meters.
Please Note: We are unable to honour our warranty terms for installations that have taken place at temperatures outside the recommended temperature range (between 15ºc & 30ºc)
Our Flexi-Tile Open 14 has been specifically designed for outdoor use. The Flexi-Tile Open 14 is low maintenance and is designed with drainage holes to prevent liquid build up on the surface.
- Rubber Mallet to interlock tiles
- Chalk to mark cutting areas and align tiles
- Cutting Board to ensure safety
- Tape Measure to make sure dimensions are correct
Flexi-Tiles can be cut using various methods
- Jigsaw or Bandsaw (Advisable for Flexi-Tile 7 and 10 tiles)
- Stanley Knife (Advisable for Flexi-Tile 5 tiles)
- Heavy-Duty Guillotine
Adhesive is required for all tiles put in the area with underfloor heating, exposed to sunlight, or depending on the weight circulating across the floor to avoid the tiles lifting up. Please refer to our installation guide for more information on this.
Prepare the subfloor by sweeping the existing floor to ensure that the surface is clean and free of dust and dirt.
The tiles can be laid on uneven surfaces (A gradient of up to 7mm per 2m of concrete subfloor and 5mm per 2m for wood subfloor). We recommend using a self-levelling repair compound in areas where there are variations in subfloor surface. If not addressed, floor tiles may ‘dislocate’ at the interlocks (The smoother the subfloor, the better your Flexi-Tile floor will be).
Yes, our tiles can be installed over a painted, vinyl or carpeted as long as its level and not slippery or damp.
The usage of sealant is not required for dark grey and black tiles.
We recommend using “Dr Schutz” sealant for all light grey and coloured tiles (green, red, yellow, blue).
“Dr Schutz” sealant creates a thin protection surface and makes cleaning easier.

Flexi-Tile is designed to be quickly and easily installed on damaged, uneven or cracked concrete/epoxy surfaces.
Other traditional flooring solutions such as epoxy resin and re-painting, often require significant curing or drying times, whereas Flexi-Tile industrial floor tiles require minimum sub floor preparation saving you time.
Our industrial floor tiles are a low maintenance flooring solution. You can install Flexi-Tile industrial tiles yourself with a few basic tools and in sections if required.
