Swisstrax Floors Trap Dust, Dirt & Grime

Easy to Clean

Because Swisstrax perforated tiles hide the dirt, dust and grime under the surface, they eliminate the need for the regular cleaning associated with epoxy floors. When it is time for periodic cleaning, the highly-engineered channeling system makes clean up a breeze. Learn how to clean a Swisstrax floor.

Eliminates Hot Tire Pick-up Issues

"Hot tire pick-up" is a condition whereby epoxy coatings become soft and weak, often adhering to the hot tires parked on top of the epoxy floor. This issue can make it challenging to clean tire marks off the epoxy, or even worse, it could lead to the epoxy separating from the underlying concrete floor.

Easier to Replace

Coated surfaces are great until you drop a heavy tool on them, or the concrete under them cracks, or hot tires cause them to peel or fade in the sunlight. Swisstrax tiles cover your floor, hide any cracks, and feature an interlocking mechanism to easily replace individual tiles.

Non-Puddling & Slip-Resistant

One of the biggest complaints about epoxy garage floors is that they are slippery when wet. The innovative, perforated design of Swisstrax's Ribtrax tiles solves this problem by allowing water and other fluids to pass through to its Swiss-engineered channeling system.

Laying a Swisstrax tile garage floor is a relatively easy DIY project that takes hours, not days and requires no special training, no harsh chemicals. Learn more about installing Swisstrax tiles.
