Help & Advice
Dynotiles are specifically designed for use as domestic garage flooring. Being a thermoplastic material, Dynotile will expand and contract along with the temperature fluctuations within the garage. For domestic garages up to 33′ (10mtr) x 25′ (7.5mtr) in floor area (800ft2 – a typical triple car garage), this expansion can be accommodated around the perimeter of the floor and hidden with an optional skirting if required.
Customers should note that prolonged sunlight hitting only part of the finished Dynotile floor (either at the door opening or through an unshaded window) will cause the tiles exposed to this sunlight to expand at a greater rate to those ‘unexposed’ tiles surrounding them. This partial exposure to sunlight may cause a temporary rise/bowing of the tiles exposed. Once the sun has gone out, the window shaded or the garage door closed, those effected tiles will quickly return to normal.
We would strongly advise that with all vehicles, the steering wheel is not turned when the vehicle is stationary – turning the steering wheel whilst stationary (especially with larger, heavy vehicles featuring wide, grippy tyres) could lead to tiles unlocking from each other and require reconnecting. We would recommend that when using Dynotile on any garage floor that the vehicle enters/exits in as straighter line as possible.

Customers should also consider the intended use for the flooring before deciding on a colour scheme. We would advise that the lighter Dynotile colours should be avoided in areas where they are likely to become stained with deposits of grease and oil.
Dynotile will not crack if the foundation cracks and it is easy to repair or replace if damaged. The installation process requires no surface preparation and is quick and odourless. Dynotile can also be removed or transferred at any time so if you move, you can take it with you. It won’t stick to your tyres either when you’ve parked your car for a while after driving in the wet!
Usually all enclosed floors require the last row or column of Dynotiles being laid to be cut in to the walls. Dynotiles can be easily cut with hand or power saws. Using a fine tooth blade suitable for cutting metal will give the best results.
The flatter the floor the better the finished result. Dynotiles are meant to be installed on clean, flat and solid surfaces. Cracks, peeling paint and small imperfections do not usually matter. Make certain to patch or fill larger dips, ridges and holes in the substrate and grind down any significant protrusions that may also interfere with the installation. Rough screeded concrete floors generally benefit from a simple treatment before fitting any floor tile and products such as self-levelling compounds are a popular solution.
Care & Maintenance
Day-to-day maintenance is performed by sweeping with a soft broom and spot cleaning any stains or marks. Solvent-based solutions can be used to clean stubborn areas without harming the flooring. Occasional mopping with a water and degreaser solution will also help to keep the floor looking its best. If necessary, to aid in separating the floor for removal, slide a broom handle under the floor at a joint, and slide it along the joint to separate the locks.
In many cases these are fine but because there are so many varieties of jack or hoist, and weights of vehicle, we would always recommend a board is placed underneath to spread the concentrated load evenly over a wider area of floor before attempting to lift. The same applies to bike stands and any other machinery or furniture which transfers large amounts of weight through small areas of contact with the floor.
While the tiles have a wide working temperature range they are plastic so don’t use using welding equipment over them. Also always take care when placing very hot items on or near them or when parking very low sports cars with hot exhausts on the floor as occasional deformation of the tiles can occur due to the heat. Usually this is only temporary and tiles will return to normal once they cool.
