Race Deck, Swiss Track, floating floor system.
« on: September 02, 2017, 10:02:51 PM »
I pulled up to the garage one day and decided it was a fright.  Decided to make it less frightful.  Don't know if it worked, but did make it more colorful and can find stuff again.  Thought I would share for folks thinking of race deck or swiss track

Used a snap lock floor system similar to Race Deck or Swiss Track.  Got it via BigFloors.com.  Price was not too bad.  Decided not to do the whole floor, but see the appeal especially if you have cracks and or prior failed epoxy flooring.  Went with just a "pad" ie three exposed edges.  Epoxy on the outside.  Good product.  Might not be a good option if you have lots of liquids, etc in the garage as it is a floating floor.  With edges, a 12 x19' area came it right at $575.00. 

Two people, you sort of get into a groove on the install.  Snap, snap, snap.  Hope it holds up better than epoxy.  If not, will be much easier to replace.  If you do a large area, i would suggest 2x2 squares for design if you do one.  It comes in 2x2 squares.  Sort of a hassle to break apart.  Like I say, two people.  Oh and a rubber mallet.     5:

Not good for shop use.  But decent for parking use.   Your wife must have a place to park no?

What does it weigh? I might like it in the trailer though.
