When it comes to installation, in some cases it is advisable to border a surface paved with elastic floor tiles with elastic edging, or edging made of other materials, available in a local DIY store.
We recommend elastic edging only with insular or half-insular shaped surfaces tiles with WARCO rubber floor tiles. On a balcony, terrace or roof terrace, edging elements are rarely necessary - only when there is a tripping hazard between two surfaces.
On a bound subfloor, such as concrete, asphalt, slabs or pavers, we recommend our RR43 (accompanying 40 - 46 mm safety tiles) or RR70 (matching 70 mm tiles) wedge-shaped edging, with the corner element needed in rectangular areas.
Bordering a play area (e.g., asphalted schoolyard, playground on a paved square) with wedge-shaped edging elements will prevent stumbling hazards and secure smooth crossing from asphalt onto the play area. Moreover, edging elements - which are screwed or glued to asphalt - prevent safety tiles from drifting away in a loose formation.
With insular play areas or garden terraces, installed on unbound subfloors, such as compacted grit/gravel, lawn or soil, we recommend a universal (compatible with any tile type) elastic kerb edging. Elastic kerb edging, embedded in concrete foundation, prevents safety mats from shifting, just like kerbstone. Another typical application is a beach volleyball court, where step-indicating kerb edging makes the game safer.
Use our special polyurethane glue (OP83) to secure the tile grid, by glueing individual tiles together (on the edges) or to the subfloor, with:
For some products a special connector is available as an option. Since it does not provide a force-fit connection between the tiles while limiting the installation to half-offset formations, we recommend the use of a connector only in exceptional cases.
