Before You Begin Your Garage Installation
Swisstrax interlocking flooring tiles must be site conditioned at room temperature (72° F or higher) for a period of 24 hours prior to installation. It is ideal to put the tiles which will be placed at the front of the garage in the direct sunlight for a period of time prior to installation to allow the tiles to expand, especially if they will be exposed to direct sunlight when the garage door is open.
Step 1: Preparation (Optional)
While this is an optional step, we highly recommend it. First, clear the flooring surface of any removable objects and/or items. Second, sweep or vacuum an excess dirt and debris off of the flooring surface.
Step 2: Locate Your Starting Point
NOTE: A minimum expansion gap of 1/4″ (quarter-inch) for Ribtrax tiles and 1/2″ (half-inch) for all other tile styles should be left at the walls and/or any other immovable objects such as cabinets, vehicle lifts, support beams etc.
