What is Swisstrax?

Swisstrax (one word) is a Swiss-engineered, modular floor tile.

The tiles are made of precision moulded polypropylene and come in a variety of colours and are chemical resistant to oils, hydraulic fluids etc. The Swisstrax can handle up to 30TON of rollover weight and compression strength of 215bar.

Swisstrax tiles can take a beating!

Each tile measures 40cm x 40cm and come in boxes of 25 tiles. So for each square meter you will need 6.25 Swisstrax tiles.


  • Size: 40 x 40cm
  • 1sqm = 6.25 tiles
  • Thickness: 1.9cm
  • Weight 650gr
  • Perforation 30mm

Cleaning Swisstrax is very simple. You can vacuum over the tiles from time to time to extract dust or particles that fall into the perforations. The maintenance of the tile surface can be done with a damp mop. If you need access to the area underneath the Swisstrax, simply use a tool to lift the Swisstrax up, clean and then put them back.

If you have proper drainage beneath the tiles, then there is no reason that you cannot wash over them and let the water drain away underneath.

Can you put a four post car lift on top fo Swisstrax tiles?

Whilst the rollover strength of the tiles are very high, we don’t recommend placing a lift directly onto the tiles.

Polypropylene tiles expand and contract like any other modular flooring. So even though the tiles can handle the psi of the lift, we recommend cutting around the tiles to allow the floor to expand and contract.

Can Swisstrax be used outdoors?

Yes, but the only tile that we recommend using outdoors is Ribtrax because of expansion purposes. Solid tiles can expand at a very high rate when exposed to sun which can cause buckling. The understructure and profile of the Ribtrax allow the tile to expand and contract within itself MUCH more than a solid tile or the Sportrax. Even though the expansion is reduced immensely with the Ribtrax, slight buckling may still occur if heavy items are left on the floor in an outdoors setting (vehicles, planter pots, etc.)

What is the best tile to use in a garage?

By far the Ribtrax is our premier tile and has been a “game changer” in the garage flooring industry. The Ribtrax tile is perforated which allows debris such as sand, dirt, snow, salt, water, etc. to go through the tile so you have a clean and presentable floor at all times. The Ribtrax tile is also equipped with a channel system on the understructure of the tile that is ¼” and runs in all different directions. This allows for cleaning of the under surface.

Many customers use a pressure washer, shop vac, or yard blower to maintain their floor. Beauty is maintenance with the Ribtrax tile is minimal. Also, solid tiles such as Diamondtrax, Cointrax, Floortrax and even Sportrax have a much higher expansion rate when it comes to temperature fluctuation.

Expansion is the “nature of the beast” when it comes to plastic modular floor tiles. The Ribtrax due to its understructure design and profile reduces expansion and contraction immensely.

If a customer has any direct sunlight in their floor when the garage door is open, we highly recommend Ribtrax because the other tile styles are prone to expansion and possible buckling.

The Ribtrax will guarantee a satisfied customer for years to come.

Can I install Swisstrax tiles myself or do I need to hire a contractor?

Swiss is essentially a DIY product and a weekend warrior can certainly install them. Typically a standard garage of 40m2 will take a first-time installer 4-6 hours.

A professional can probably have it done in half the time.

What kind of tools do I need to install Swisstrax?

Minimal tools are required.

  • Sharpie Pen
  • Tape Measure
  • Some sort of Electrical Saw (with fine-toothed blade) or Tile Cutter.
  • Masking tape
  • Trim remover
  • Gloves (the edges once cut can be sharp)
Can a vehicle be turned on Swisstrax tiles?

You can turn tires on Swisstrax tiles. With that said, however, we don’t recommend turning tires fully while the vehicle is at a standstill. This can put a lot of stress on the connection system. 

Cam I remove a single tile from the midle of the floor?

You can take a flat-headed screwdriver or a paint can opener.

You can grab a corner and remove a single tile due to our QUICK-SNAP System which is unique in the industry.

Are the tiles chemically resistant?

All our tiles are chemically resistant to oils, hydraulic fluids, etc. We have done many airline hangars due to the fact that our tiles are chemical resistant against Skydrol which is known for its high corrosion rate.

Can I jack up my car on Swisstrax tiles?
The tiles have a psi up to 4,049 and rollover strength of over 70,000lbs so yes you can jack up. acar on the tiles.

However, if you are going to place the car on jack stands, then we recommend that you place them on pieces of solid wood. The pressure from the weight and the sharp corner of the jack stands might press into the tiles.

How do I clean Swisstrax tiles?

There are a few ways to clean the tiles and this depends on the style of tile you have.

With the solid tiles such as the Diamondtrax, Cointrax and Floortrax, you will maintain them just like you do a typical floor. You can use a hose to wash the tiles off or sweep debris away using a broom.

This is the beauty of the Ribtrax tiles as it is known as the “Low Maintenance” tile.

You can use a pressure washer or hose to spray down the tiles letting the debris run through the channel system below the tile out the garage door entry.

Also popular is using a shop vac or yard blower.

If something spills and leaves a residue circle, you can use a solution such as Simple Green or Greased Lightning which can be found in any general store.

How do I cut the tiles in a wall to all installation?

You can cut the tiles with any professional cutter . You just want to make sure you use a fine toothed blade. A professional tile cutter can be purchased through Swisstrax that cuts tiles like a hot knife through butter. Either way, the tiles are very simple to work with!

Are adhesives needed to install Swisstrax tiles?

Swisstrax is a floated mounting system so there is no need for adhesives or fixtures.

Can the tiles be installed over a drain?
he Ribtrax tile is PERFECT for a garage with a drain due to the fact that all the water will run through the channel system on the understructure of the tile into the drains. If a customer is dead-set on going with a solid tile, they can use the Sportrax tile that is perforated (no channel system on understructure like Ribtrax) over the drain so it may still be utilized.
Can Swisstrax be installed over in-floor heating?

Yes, we highly recommend using the Ribtrax tile to allow for the heat to escape through the floor to maximize efficiency. We do not recommend solid tiles such as Diamondtrax, Cointrax or Floortrax because you would be trapping the heat which could cause the tile to expand at a high rate leading to possible buckling.

Are Swisstrax tiles aterproof?

In terms of exposing tiles to water, yes, they are made of plastic so they are indeed impervious to water, however in terms of the interlocking snap-system and the fact they are clearly perforated, they are not waterproof.

Do Swisstrax produce any off gas?
This is the beauty of 100% Virgin Polypropylene. Unlike PVC products (Polyvinyl Chloride) which many garage tiles are made of and are extremely hazardous to the environment, PP (Polypropylene) does not release an off-gas and is 100% recyclable.
Are Swisstrax tiles mold and mildew resistant?

YES, depending on the tile style and application. If you have an application that involves a lot of moisture or high volumes of humidity, then Ribtrax tiles are a must. Ribtrax allows for ventilation and air flow through out your flooring system, so bacteria, mold and mildew issues are completely eliminated.
