Swisstrax Floors 3rd Annual Greystone Mansion Concours d’Elegance with Flooring Tiles

Beverly Hills, California May 20, 2012

Many who attended the recently-concluded 2012 Greystone Mansion Concours d’Elegance in Beverly Hills agree that this has been the best installment yet and well worth the price of admission. With over 150 antique cars and motorcycles for show goers to admire, the Greystone Concours, after only 3 years, is on its way to becoming one of the premiere events in the vintage car show circuit.

On hand to lend a distinctive look to the event was Swisstrax with its modular rental flooring tiles. As Autoweek put it, “organizers covered up the white lines of the parking lot this year with nice (Swisstrax) flooring to make you forget that it was a parking lot–it worked; we forgot”. The presence of Swisstrax at the Greystone Concours was a matter of course, as the company’s excellent line of garage flooring tiles were a complement to the pricey, and priceless, vehicles on display. Swisstrax’s regular presence with their event flooring at Pebble Beach, SEMA and the Barrett-Jackson auctions, to name a few events, is well-established.

Debuting at the Greystone mansion event was Swisstrax’s BizBox mobile showroom. With it, Swisstrax aims to showcase its flooring tiles product as well as that of its partners in a high-tech, easy to set up platform. Just like the Swisstrax flooring tiles that covered the Greystone Mansion parking lot, the Swisstrax BizBox mobile showroom made you forget that it was a building on wheels with its high-tech features. Using the BizBox mobile showroom, Swisstrax has begun expanding its presence by attending more car shows, auto auctions and other auto events than was previously possible. Aside from its garage and event flooring products, the Swisstrax mobile showroom also offers products like Shelby art, office furniture, cabinets, ramps and other garage accessories.

Swisstrax’s BizBox debut at the Greystone Concours lived up to the company’s expectations, allowing it to focus on serving customers very quickly. Expect to see the Swisstrax BizBox at the Pismo Beach Classic show from June 15 to June 17.

Spring is here! Time to get organized and clean your garage.

The long cold nights of winter are over.  The days are getting longer.  The weather is getting warmer.  Now is the time to get to all that spring cleaning you have been putting off.  Part of that big cleanup includes your garage.  Long winters bring dirt and stuff thrown everywhere in your garage.

Cleaning up your garage can be quite a chore but there are products available that will make this task much easier.  The first step would be to get everything out of your garage.  Throw away anything you no longer need.  Get rid of the clutter!  Next give the floors a really good sweeping.  Road sand and salt is not only dirty, but can also damage your garage floors.  If possible you may want to even rinse off the floor with a garden hose.

Great so now everything is out of the garage and the floors are clean.  Next install a rolled garage flooring or tile garage floor.  Garage floors offer protection, durability and beauty to any garage.

Now that your floor is installed, let’s move on to organization.  The garage is made to park your car.  Let’s make room to put it in there!  We already got rid of all the stuff we no longer need so we have less to put back into the garage.  But the question always is where to put it all.  Garage cabinets are exactly what you need.  They are designed to be rugged against the harsh conditions of a garage yet stylish and impressive to look at.  They are offered individually or in packages for the greatest cost savings.

Your garage is now clean, organized and has room for what it was made for.  Your car!

Garages: Getting Organized, and Staying Organized

Garages can truly be a pain; not only are they generally dirty, but they become a place where many of us put things that have no other place.  For many of us, our garage is a place of disarray, one that we constantly promise ourselves that we’re going to organize… one day.  However, there are products out there to help those of us with unorganized garages, like those featured on storeitwell.com.  These products will help everyone from those who have project cars to multiple-car households get organized and stay organized.

The Benefits of a Rolled Garage Floor
Before the benefits of a rolled garage floor are introduced, what exactly is it?  Rolled garage flooring is an easy and relatively inexpensive alternative to redoing a garage floor.  Similar to the concept of carpet, someone who buys a rolled garage floor will roll out the material, generally polyvinyl or rubber, and fit it to their garage by cutting off the excess.

The benefits of such floors are numerous.  First, the floor will make your garage look like new.  Second, cleaning is not only simple but convenient because the floor is portable and made of materials that don’t absorb oil, grease, and dirt stains.  This means no more scrubbing oil stains, or hiring people to strip and repaint your concrete only to have to have the process done again a few years later.  Third, in comparison to concrete floors which are slippery when wet, the rubber and polyvinyl materials provide buyers with the safety of no-slip floors.  Fourth, they’re better for your body because they generally have more padding than concrete; this is especially true for those who constantly spend time working in their garage.  Concrete flooring is terrible for our joints because there is no give; but because rolled garage flooring is padded, it provides our feet, back, and spine joints with much needed cushioning when walking around the garage.  Fifth, these floors protect your concrete floors beneath; which means they will save you money in the long-run on expensive repairs.

Organizational Storage
No one wants their garage to look like the picture on the left.  And let’s face it, that really isn’t that bad; that’s a pretty organized unorganized garage.  There’s nothing like enclosed cabinets to help you get your entire garage’s contents organized.  The benefits of utilizing cabinets are pretty intuitive.  First, they help you not only get organized, but stay organized.  Second, your belonging will be out of sight, so your garage will look neat and you will have more space to do the activities you need to.   Third, they also help you keep your tools and other belongings safe from getting damaged or causing damage; there’s nothing worse than a heavy tool falling on a car.  Fourth, they allow you to store harmful chemicals safe out of the reach of children and pets.  Fifth, many times people have so much clutter in their garage that they cannot even store the very thing their garage was designed to store: Their car!  Garage cabinets allow you to make space to safely store your vehicle.
