The Max Tile is a commercial-grade modular tile suitable for many applications. From portable dance floors to basement flooring to dance flooring, this multi-use tile is an excellent choice for countless projects.


These raised floor tiles are designed with excellent performance and durability in mind. This modular flooring is commercial-grade and is equipped with a low maintenance, high quality 3 mm thick vinyl laminate top surface. The surface comes in 8 designer textures, including wood grain, slate, and white, for a beautiful finish, and is designed so that the flooring looks great, year after year. The vinyl top includes a UV protective coating and is also scratch and wear resistant. These tiles will never need refinishing, minimizing the maintenance and creating a long-lasting surface.

These modular floor tiles are an excellent choice if you're looking for durability. When used in a residence, this modular flooring's wear layer is rated for 15 years. When used in commercial applications, the wear layer thickness is rated for 7 years. Additionally, the tiles come with a 5-year warranty so you can buy with confidence.

The base tray, made of durable polypropylene, is designed for repeated installations without degrading the tile connectors. The unique tile connector system is portable, strong, and stable, so you can use the floor temporarily and then pack it up again when you're done. This is an ideal feature for temporary dance floors or other flooring that you may need to move and transport, but these tiles are also durable enough for permanent installation, too.

One of the major benefits of Max Tiles is that they make great raised floor tiles for basement use. These tiles allow both air and water to circulate beneath them, which can help to speed drying and avoid mold and mildew growth. These non-absorbent tiles are ideal for situation where water may be present, such as if your basement leaks after heavy rain.

With its durability, versatility, and excellent quality, this tile is one of the most popular modular flooring options on the market.

Uses for Max Tile Raised Floor Tiles
Max Tile is a versatile raised floor tile suitable for countless uses. Consider Max Tile for the following potential applications:
- Basement flooring
- Portable dance flooring
- Court flooring
- Multi-use space flooring
- Aerobic & exercise flooring
- Bedroom, dining room, or living room flooring
- Trade shows
- Show room floors

These raised modular tiles are versatile and durable enough to bring any number of projects to life:

Raised Floor Tiles for Basements
These modular floor tiles can help you to quickly transform your basement into an attractive, usable space. The tiles create a beautiful finish suitable for a living space, a work space, or even a multi-purpose area.

Max Tile raised basement flooring tiles are ideal for use in areas where you need some air circulation beneath the floors. If your basement leaks or tends to hold moisture, these tiles can help to prevent the buildup of mildew and mold which can occur with other, more solid flooring types. These raised floor tiles for basements allow both air and water to circulate beneath them, rather than trapping moisture. Circulation promotes drying and a healthier environment.

When installing these modular tiles for athletic courts or on concrete floors, we recommend using a 2 to 6 mm rubber underlayment to provide shock absorption, increase comfort and muffle sound. The use of rubber underlayment for home installations over concrete may reduce the potential for clicking noise from the tiles touching the concrete floor. Home underlayment options feature the 2mm EZ Floor or 3 mm rubber underlayment. If you are installing tiles in an area where leaks may occur, then do not use an underlayment.

Dance Floor Tiles
This modular tile is a popular option for dance floors, both temporary and permanent. Because these tiles can be assembled and removed, you can create a portable, temporary dance floor for events, performances, and more. These tiles may be installed over carpeting, however Greatmats does not guarantee that these tile are suitable for installation over carpeting, as all carpet is different.

Alternatively, you can economically create a dance floor in the comfort of your own home.

These tiles are finished with a low maintenance, high quality 3mm thick vinyl laminate top. This highly durable surface is scratch and wear resistant, and even includes a UV protective coating. These tiles won't need refinishing and despite hours of practice, they'll still look great.

Court and Athletic Flooring
Create a professional looking athletic court with these modular tiles. The selection of wood finishes contributes to a beautiful, eye-catching finish suitable for indoor basketball courts, gym floors and more. This non-absorbent tile can even be painted with court lines.

The durable vinyl laminate top provides plenty of protection against scratching and wear, so your new court will continue to look great despite rigorous use.

Additionally, you won't have to worry about the costly investment of repeatedly refinishing the floor.

Because these tiles lock together tightly, they'll hold together and will not separate like other flooring tiles tend to do.

General Room Flooring
Raised floor tiles make an attractive flooring for rooms both within your home and in public venues. Homeowners have used these tiles to floor bedrooms, living rooms, offices and more. These tiles have also been used to floor church halls, community spaces, public offices and other commercial spaces.

Because the tiles are waterproof and allow water and air to flow and beneath them, they're ideal for bathrooms or kitchens, where frequent spills may happen. They create beautiful, professional floors for other spaces, like dens, bedrooms or hallways. With the available ramped edge pieces, you can create a clean, finished edge if you don't want to do a wall-to-wall installation. And because installing these tiles is easy, you can floor your rooms yourself without having to bring in a professional.

These tiles are durable enough to withstand the weight of furniture, and their vinyl top is UV ad scratch resistant, so you can confidently install them even in high-traffic areas of your home.

Aerobic & Exercise Flooring
These raised floor tiles can also serve as aerobic and exercise flooring. They're easy to install and remove, so you can use them as either temporary or permanent flooring in your home. Because these tiles have a durable vinyl protective coating, they can easily withstand repeated use and will still look great.

When installing these floors for an aerobic or exercise use, we recommend that you add a 3 to 6mm rubber underlayment. This underlayment will add cushion and shock absorption properties for a more comfortable workout.

You can rest assured that these tiles tightly interlock, so they will not separate or start to pull apart no matter how hard your workout session.

What are the benefits?
- 12x12 inch tile size is easy to handle and makes for a smooth installation
- 8 different finishes allow you to choose the exact appearance that you want
- Durable top commercial grade vinyl surface keeps this tile looking great for years
- Removable design allows for repeated installation and temporary use
- Tile design allows water and air to flow underneath, helping to prevent mold and mildew growth
- Tight fitting tiles stay secure; there's no worrying about tiles pulling apart or gapping
- Optional ramped border edging creates a clean, finished edge
- Tile can be cut to fit for wall to wall installations

Installation
These raised floor tiles are a great option for a DIY project. They easily interlock together with no tools or glue required. To connect the tiles, place them on a hard surface. Then align the tiles with the nubs on top of the loops, and step on the tiles with your foot to lock them together. It's easy, fast, and simple, and a single person can easily floor a room.

When assembling the tiles for a sport or court floor, we recommend using a 3mm to 6mm low density rubber underlayment for additional cushion, comfort, noise and shock absorption. Avoid using an underlayment in areas where leaks or moisture may occur, like in basements.

Once assembled, these floor tiles make for a tight-fitting, secure floor surface. If using them for temporary purposes, you can disassemble the tiles and store them until you need them again.

Clean with damp mop, hot water and common household floor cleaner.

Q & A⌃ Back to top
Ask a question about this product

Product Questions:

Hi- I have a garage that was finished in - we installed carpet padding and carpet over the concrete. I am now looking to add something in there that will provide a better workout surface. Will this product work with a carpet backing? Also, I'm not going wall to wall - are there edge pieces to clean up the outer edges? I'm going to install roughly 50 square feet. Thank you
This product would work well for your application. And yes this tile has border edges available. Also our Staylock floor tile would work and has border edging.
I am going to use this product in a garage/hot tub room. will it be a good product to use in this area ?
Yes this could be ok, and the tiles are not water tight, so some water could get below the tiles, however the tile are raised and will allow air and water flow under the tiles. The tiles themselves are water proof.
I am considering installing this as a mat in my office for my office chair to roll on. But it would be installed over carpet. Will this product work on carpet rather than a hard concrete floor?
Yes you can install this product over carpeting, however this tile is not designed as a chair mat and may not hold up to the chair wheels over time.
How do you recommend ramping cut sides? Unfortunately my area is 15 1/2 x 15 1/2 and there are 3 sides with doorways so at least one of them will be on a cut side
If a ramp is required, then that tile can not be cut down.
Can I put my pool table on top of this flooring?
Yes this is fine.
I'm looking to install a flooring for my daughter to practice ballet at an advanced amateur level. Will I need a subfloor? If a subfloor isn't needed, will this work on top of the carpet or do I remove the carpet & place it directly on the plywood underneath?
For ballet we recommend our marley flooring for a continuous surface for the dancer. Marley needs to be installed on a hard flat surface. We have modular plastic tiles that can be installed over your carpeting in order to then install the marley. Please contact customer service.
I have an old crt tv that weight 240 pounds would this flooring be able to hold this tv on a stand?
Yes this is fine
Is this a good flooring product for my basement floor that my son can practices dribbling his basketball? We want to make the floor look like a basketball court.
Yes this tile is good for bouncing a basketball, you can also place a thin rubber underlayment material under the tiles for cushion.
We can get a steady trickle of flowing water through our basement in really heavy rains (once or twice a year or so). Will the edging let this trickle under or direct onto the top of the floor?
Yes the underside of this floor will allow water to flow underneath.
I want to use it for my bedroom , but i've read everything and it doesn't say anything about rooms. Does it work well with bedrooms?
Sure, this product can be installed in any room in the house, maybe kitchen and bathroom as the exception, as the tiles will allow water to go between the seams if something spills.
We are finishing a basement bedroom, and looking for floor options. Could these also be used as a subfloor to lay carpet on top of? We can't find any publicly available subflooring for basements that provides the water and air channel underneath, only the systems sold by specific vendors.
Yes this is one option for a raised subfloor in a basement, also our staylock orange peel tiles would work well, however they are softer than the max tiles for furniture.
Can this tile install over Super TUFF-R or Owens Corning FOAMULAR in basement?
Its possible, but its also likely the tiles will gouge into the foam, similar to if you used your finger to press on this type of foam board.
Should I put something under this if I am going to put it outside? What do you suggest I use underneath it, if anything?
Yes, the Portable Outdoor Floor Tile is the best option as a first layer for the Max Tile. http://www.greatmats.com/portable-floor/portable-flooring-tile-black.php
For a basement room, is it best to put the raised tile without anything underneath? So that if there is slight water seepage after a rain, it will dry faster? Also, if there is only a slight amount of moisture, is it necessary to pick up the tile and dry the cement? Or will it evaporate because of the raised floor?
If the basement might seep a little, then don't use any underlayment. As for when to remove the tiles if the floor gets wet, this is up to the homeowner and the amount of time the concrete floor may take to dry out. The tiles are not affected by moisture.
Can this be installed over hardwood? Will it affect the wood floors finish?
This tile can be installed over hardwood and will not affect the finish of the wood, it might indent the wood somewhat, that depends on the wood type.
We are looking at this product for our studio/gym. We will dance with shoes on and off. We also need flooring that will work with free weights. Will this product work for weights?
This floor tile is not suitable to drop weights on the tiles, as the top vinyl will crack.

I worked with Beth at Great Mats after finding their product (raised waterproof floor tiles) online. Beth was fantastic to work with. I called numerous times, and Beth was patient, informative, and very helpful as I explained my situation and goals. We were looking for a flooring that would allow moisture and air to flow underneath even though we have a very dry basement. We just had the floor tiles installed in our basement. These tiles look amazing on the floor - really make a difference even though we have an unfinished basement. I would highly recommend Great Mats and these tiles!! And I can't thank Beth enough for all her help!

Customer Rating:


Nice product and I am pretty happy with it. The finished product has a bit of an institutional look & feel to it. I used it as the flooring for a yoga room for my wife and it worked out well. Did have some issues in shipping. A few tiles had broken tabs and one had a blemish on the surface. I contacted customer service and sent over pictures. They agreed to replace the damaged tiles and then I found a few more with broken tabs. Notified customer service of the additional problems, but never heard back. I didn't push the issue since I could get the flooring to work even with the imperfections. Just felt like the customer service wasn't as engaged as they should have been to make sure everything was right. I'd give the product 4 stars and customer service 2 stars.

I have received a sample tile, and I think is the best out of the four other samples from other companies. This one is much better, because the reverse side is smooth and does not damage the carpet.

I am preparing to place an order for 180 tiles.

Joan - the salesrep - is very helpful and always ready to answer my questions and make suggestions.

Thanks a lot.

We were searching for a durable, waterproof flooring for our semi-finished basement rec room, and were delighted to find such an attractive solution with the light oak Max Tile. It is easy to install and, especially with a plastic-specific saw blade, cuts very smoothly where fitting is needed. The helpfulness and responsiveness of Greatmats’ staff are outstanding.

Good quality! Good price! Excellent service and free shipping ! I had bought about 50 tiles 4 years ago for a small dance floor for flamenco practice. I decided to make the floor larger and was able to get the same exact floor which matched perfectly with same good quality, and good for striking; no slipping. It is over an indoor/outdoor carpet which gives it a bit of spring. Very happy with floor! Thank you!

It wasn't just the product but the service. We received a sample very promptly, but the delivery of the order was exceptional. The product could not be easier to install and was above expectations in appearance.


LIMA, NY

Customer Rating:


I took a chance ordering this in that I really had no idea what I'm doing. It is working incredibly well. We've had a moisture problem in the basement for years and I could not figure out how to make the space more livable for our son. It's perfect. He loves it. And the best part, he installed it without me knowing it when I was at work. Highly recommended product. I'll be ordering another patch as soon as I get the laundry room done.
