How To Install StayLock Perforated Deck and Playground Tiles

StayLock Perforated Tile Installation Video

Step-by-step Installation Tutorial for StayLock Perforated Tiles

StayLock Perforated tiles are excellent for indoor or outdoor installations where kids or moisture are present. With a raised base and a perforated surface, water and moisture will drain away and dry with no extra effort. Staylock Perforated Tile provide safety and comfort for your active youngsters, with a soft, flexible surface with a 20 inch fall height rating.

Installing these modular PVC tiles is also quick and easy - especially for island installations. For wall-to-wall installations, all you'll need is a tape measure, straight edge, pen and sharp utility knife. StayLock Tile can be laid over any hard, flat surface as well, including carpeting.

Begin in a corner with the loop sides of the tile facing out. Keeping one straight side against the wall and the other over the loops. Press the nubs of each new tile down onto the loops of the existing tiles until they snap into place.

Continue laying your PVC tiles in a triangular fashion, always keeping the loops facing out. Once you've reached the opposite wall and can no longer fit full tiles, measure the distance between the tiles laid down and the wall.

Using your straight edge and sharp utility knife cut your tiles to fit using repeated shallow scores to keep a clean edge. Keep in mind, your cut tiles will need to be laid facing the same direction as your already laid tiles. You will be cutting off a loop side of the tile.

Snap your cut tiles in place and your installation is complete.

For exposed edges or island installations, you may want a ramped border. Ramped border edges are available for both nub and loop (or male and female) versions and are sold separately.

Staylock Perforated Tiles come in several different color options and can be mixed and matched for any color combination. Ramped borders are available in black and yellow.
