Interlocking Floor Tiles Offer Versatile Comfort and Safety Padding

Sometimes, there are things in life we don’t think about until we’re forced to deal with them. The size of your car’s cargo area when you have to move. The importance of sunscreen after 12 innings at the ballpark. The ink level in your printer after putting off a mid-term essay. Daily life makes us juggle so many responsibilities, it’s sometimes necessary to neglect minor things until we’re made to pay attention.

Welcoming a new child to the family or remodeling the basement are just a couple examples of occasions that can spur you to take a deeper look at your world. Safety and comfort are two major things that take precedence when considering everything at hand. Floors often lack these desirable traits. To improve the safety and comfort of flooring in a home or space, The Foam Factory offers interlocking rubber tile made of foam that melds a blend of padding, cushion and stability.

Interlocking foam tiles are made from very durable materials and are perfect for protecting against tumbles and falls while remaining stable enough for anyone to confidently walk across. The two closed-cell foam varieties The Foam Factory cuts into interlocking tiles are cross-linked polyethylene (XLPE) and neoprene, the former available in seven colors and the latter being available in regular or high quality formulations. The fine cellular structure of these foam types allows them to keep their shape and strength while maintaining the padding you need from a foam floor tile for absorbing impact and cushioning users.

The Foam Factory offers full customization of their interlocking tile flooring, ranging from dimensions, colors, and even interlocking pattern. Standard sizes are also offered for those looking to satisfy basic requirements, with tiles available in either 11 or 12 inch squares and a trapezoidal interlocking pattern. Tiles can be ordered in sets, with the outer pieces having smooth, finished edges, or all sides can have interlocking edges to keep open the potential for expansion. Smaller edging pieces can even be ordered to achieve both options; a finished look still able to grow or shrink as needed. Most interlocking flooring tiles are made 3/8 or 1/2 inches thick to blend stability and cushion, but can be cut up to 4 inches in XLPE and 2 inches in both neoprene varieties. Tiles can even have custom cutouts in their centers, made with The Foam Factory’s waterjet machine, turning the floor into a fun puzzle or even a learning exercise. Laminating a soft fabric to the tile’s surface is yet another option offered.

These tiles are very simple, requiring only a mild soap and water wipe-down, as their water-resistant, closed-cell structures will not absorb moisture. This makes for superb products in a child’s play area, or as temporary play mats. The foam can protect bumped heads and falls, while being simple to clean in the inevitable case of a mess. And when playtime is over, the foam play mat can be taken apart and put away, transforming a room back to its original layout. The setup of these foam squares is incredibly easy, as they can be interlocked by hand or even by stepping on the seams. For tear down, simply fold at the seams of the interlocking play mats and gently pull them apart; it’s that simple. That simplicity makes interlocking tiles a great idea for people whose grandchildren visit occasionally or daycare providers in search of a fun, bright addition to their activity area that doubles as a safety product.

Foam tiles are also great at protecting floors against damage from heavy workout equipment like personal gyms, weight benches and treadmills. These can provide a buffer that prevents scratches and gouges but are still stable enough to allow for safe use of the equipment. Best of all, the versatility of a padded mat means if you store the equipment when not in use, you can store the protective foam padding with it.

If you’ve been searching for versatile floor padding, few solutions are better than foam interlocking tiles. With numerous customization options and the ability to set them up and tear them down, The Foam Factory’s foam tiles are a fun and practical way to customize any space to your needs.
