Cutting Techniques

Preparation: Before beginning, ensure that the Swisstrax garage floor tiles are clean and free from any debris or obstructions. This will facilitate smooth and accurate cutting.

Measuring and Marking: Take precise measurements of the area that needs to be cut, allowing for a snug fit around the object. Use a straight edge and pencil to mark the cutting lines clearly on the tile surface.



When dealing with intricate cuts, a jigsaw provides optimal control. Align the jigsaw blade with the marked line, ensuring it matches the desired shape. Begin cutting steadily and at a moderate speed, allowing the blade to do the work. Be cautious around corners or curves, using slight angles and smooth movements. Practice patience to achieve clean and accurate results.

Circular Saw

When cutting Swisstrax garage tiles with a circular saw, it is essential to follow a few simple steps to ensure a clean and precise cut. First, ensure you’re using a fine-toothed blade suitable for cutting plastic materials. After you’ve measured and marked your tile, position the blade just outside the marked line and adjust the butting depth to slightly penetrate the tile. Begin the cut by applying gentle and steady pressure, allowing the saw to do the work. Move the saw along the marked line, maintaining a smooth and controlled motion. Once the cut is complete, inspect the tile for any rough edges and use a fine-grit sandpaper to smooth them out if necessary.

Table Saw

Set up your table saw with a fine-toothed blade. After measuring and marking the tile, place the tile on the table saw with the marked line aligned with the saw’s blade. Keep a firm grip on the tile and slowly push it forward, allowing the blade to cut through them material. Take care to maintain a steady and controlled feed rate to prevent any chipping or splintering. Once the cut is complete, switch off the table saw and remove the cut tile from the machine. Always remember to prioritize safety and take your time when operating power tools.
