Garage Flooring That Will Transform Any Space by Better Life Technology

Are you looking to transform your cracked and stained garage floor into a showroom? If so, look no further than Better Life Technology’s roll-out floor protector.

These unique mats help prevent floor damage and reduce the amount of dirt tracked into your home. They are simple to install, leaving your garage looking like new.

Before installing these mats, be sure the garage is swept clean of any debris. If there are any grease or oil stains on the flooring, be sure they are wiped up before unrolling the mats. We chose the black diamond tread, which came in two rolls for each garage space. There are a variety of surface options available, including rib/channel, coin, smooth levant and diamond tread.

Simply start unrolling the mats at the garage entrance and end at the rear of the bay. If you find there are some curl marks, just take a broom and roll over to push the air out. What makes this flooring so appealing is its ability to be easily cut into the exact size and shape to perfectly fit any garage interior. Trimming the product is very simple. The most important thing to consider before cutting the mat is to be sure the product is entirely laid out flat to avoid an uneven cut.

The flooring is easy to clean and impervious to oil and other fluids that leak from our cars. Just mix a solution of soap and water and wash the flooring either inside or outside of the garage. While some people prefer to take the mats out of the garage in the warmer weather, it’s just as easy to keep them inside and use a normal household mop.

Most people have come to prefer the G-Floor over coating systems due to its ease of installation and durability. It is also preferred over snap together systems because of cost and unlike the alternatives, it can prevent water and dirt from migrating all over the garage.

G-Floor was developed by Brett Sneed, chief executive officer and co-founder of Better Life Technology. “Good floor covering improves the look, shields the floor, and increases the value of any room it is in,” he said. “Just roll it out and trim the edges; what could be simpler than that.” The flooring came as a result of his search for a better solution to cover his garage floor and keep from tracking dirt and liquids from his garage into the house. He wanted a product that could transform the look, be easily put down and cover the garage floor in seconds. He was also looking for something simple to install, looks great and would last for years.

After finding nothing that met his needs, Sneed and his father developed, manufactured and brought to market a specially formulated 10-foot wide, roll out polyvinyl pad that covered the garage floor in minutes.

Better Life Technology makes many different floor coverings for a variety of applications including trailer floors, kennel liners, motorcycle mats and even an anti-fatigue mat. The RaceDay peel and stick tile offers an easy install and custom fit look while hiding cracks and stains. Each mat also comes with a five-year warranty, which is no wonder the company’s G-Floor product has become the number one selling garage floor protection system in the United States.

Swisstrax Corporation Gives Back to the Community with Donated Flooring Tiles

Swisstrax Corporation, maker of flooring tiles, is working to help Victory Outreach in Thermal, CA in the reconstruction of a building to house their new 30-bed recovery home. The doors have recently opened with the continued help of generous donors and the hard work of Pastor Martinez and many volunteers as well as future residents assisting with clean up and construction.

The Victory Outreach home is a ministry of a local church, providing residence for men and women. The purpose of the home is to reclaim, redeem and restore lives of those who have been destroyed or interrupted by drugs, alcohol and other abuse substances – restoration of the family and a positive work ethic are focuses of this recovery center.

This positive work ethic has helped to restore the current building from a place where vandals and squatters damaged much of the inside and outside of the building – to a safe, comfortable recovery residence. Many donors have given or committed to provide materials such as windows, drywall, carpet, cabinets, flooring tiles, and even mattresses. The plumbing and electrical has been updated and repaired. New flooring tiles have been installed, and Swisstrax both donated and installed some of the home’s flooring.

Pastor Martinez has already held Bible Study and Services at the home while still in reconstruction. The Victory Outreach is an ongoing project and is in the initial stages of renovation. Swisstrax and their partners are dedicated to see this project come to fruition. Anyone interested in making a donation should contact Swisstrax at victoryoutreach(at)swisstrax(dot)com

Swisstrax Receives LEED Certification for their EcoTrax Recycled Flooring Program and Carbon Footprint Comparison to Epoxy Coating

Swisstrax Corporation receives LEED certification and third-party comparison of carbon footprint ratings of their recycled flooring tiles versus epoxy coatings

Indio, CA (Vocus) October 13, 2010

Swisstrax, manufacturer of interlocking, modular garage floor tile, has received 4 and 5 MR credits in LEED certification of their recycled flooring product line – EcoTrax.

Philip Culen of Manex, a consultant to California Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery’s Tire-Derived Product Business Assistance Program noted in a letter to Swisstrax “I am pleased to inform you that we have received all of the necessary documentation to establish that we can provide third-party verification that your Ecotrax recycled flooring product meets the requirements for incorporation into building projects requiring recycled content.”

The recycled flooring tiles also underwent a comparison with epoxy coatings on carbon footprint as well as lifetime costs. In the report, the third party noted “Investing up front in a durable, environmentally friendly garage tile solution from Swisstrax instead of an epoxy coating, will significantly lower your lifetime cost of ownership and give your home a smaller carbon footprint and a more durable, lower maintenance garage flooring solution.”
