Recycled rubber garage floor tiles are the way to go if green is a consideration for your garage flooring. You can obtain a product called Rubbertrax+™ from the the fine people at Swisstrax™ Interlocking Flooring Tiles that are LEED certified by the U.S. Green Building Council.
They offer a product with guaranteed quality and low cost. They will even buy back your garage flooring tiles after you have worn them out, or want a new design, at a fair price or give you credit towards future purchases of their garage flooring products. YOU CAN'T BEAT THAT OFFER! The product they receive in return from you will be recycled again so the recycled flooring loop is closed. That is truly GREEN!
Rubbertrax tiles contain 100% post consumer recycled content and is the only modular rubber tile in the world that can make that claim. The product is also made from regionally sourced materials.
This product has a smaller carbon footprint and an estimated 30% savings for the consumer. Some of the features you should consider are as follows:
1: Rubbertrax recycled garage floor tiles are approved for fit, form and function. They are warranted for 7 years by Swisstrax for the purpose they are intended for.
2: The difference with the Rubbertrax product in comparison to Swisstrax original product is:
a. Slight color variations throughout the product.
b. Not as weather resistant as original (newly manufactured) goods when exposed to ultra violet light.
c. Due to the nature of recycled products Swisstrax cannot control what materials go into this product but they do withstand internal testing procedures regarding tensile stress and breakage points.
d. An increase in thermal expansion and contraction can be experienced with recycled rubber products.
All-in-all, the above cautions should not be a drawback for most consumers looking for an inexpensive green garage flooring solution. This product is available in up to 14 colors with a variety of surface design patterns and should please the most discerning consumer.
The Rubbertrax garage flooring product installs and interlocks with a male — female interlock system and is available with coordinated border trim for individual car pads as seen in the photo above. If you have a very large area to cover, the manufacturer also offers a specially designed cutting tool. You can view all of the installation procedures and possible design patterns by visiting their website at: www.swisstrax.com. Visit them today!

We have been following your blog and we have found a lot of useful information in it.

I was pleased that I was able to easily find the proper tall storage cabinet for my garage. I needed lockable storage to keep my toddler away from sharp tools and solvents that my husband stores. Garagetips-101 solved my problem!
I love the detail in your garage building pages. They helped me understand how to engineer a foundation for a garage we are planning that our building department will approve. I had the inspector go to your pages and review what I was talking about. Now, I am studying the wall framing sections, as we plan to build it ourselves this fall. Thank you so much for the great information.

Great stuff on wall framing. I never really understood the on-and-off spacing concepts for the wall studs until I read your explanations.
