Ezgrip – FAQ
  • ECOLAY
  • Do I have to glue Ezgrip ?

    No you don’t, unless it is for specific commercial applications such as hospitals, pubs, dentist offices and areas that are subjected to extensive water presence. Not that water can damage Ezgrip, but it can damage the subfloor. Adhesives recommended are Mapei Eco 810 or 350, Henry’s 422 or any other good quality adhesive formulated for vinyl tiles.

  • Can I use Ezgrip outside?

    Ezgrip is not designed for exterior applications.

  • What difference is there between Ezgrip and ordinary vinyl tiles?

    Ezgrip will not expand, shrink, curl or crack like other tiles. This is made possible because of the construction of Ezgrip. The strong fiberglass mesh at the core of Ezgrip makes it 100% stable.

  • What holds Ezgrip in place?

    Ezgrip is installed tight against the walls. You do not leave gaps for expansion. We recommend using two sided tape or vinyl glue around the perimeter of the room to provide additional adherence, specially if the walls are not perfectly straight.

  • Why use Ezgrip ?

    Ezgrip was designed in Canada, to meet Canadian tastes and standards. Guaranteed not to expand, contract, curl, buckle, or peel once it is installed, Ezgrip will maintain its quality and look for generations. As well, the state-of-the-art technology used to manufacture Ezgrip ensures that there will be an installation that is as “EZ” as 1-2-3.

  • How do I cut Ezgrip?

    For smaller jobs, a simple utility knife will work. Score the surface, fold the plank and cut the back. For larger jobs, it is faster and more accurate to use a miter saw or table saw. A laminate cutter works well too.

  • Can I use Ezgrip over radiant heat?

    Yes. Ezgrip is engineered to prevent expansion and contraction and will perform well over radiant heat.

  • Is Ezgrip scratch-proof?

    Although Ezgrip is highly resistant to scratches, no product is scratch-proof. Even diamonds will scratch. That is why you want to use felt pads under chairs and furniture as you should with any other flooring.

  • Will high heels leave marks on Ezgrip?

    Unprotected high heels will leave marks on any floor, including wood, marble and even granite.

  • Can I install Ezgrip in an unheated cabin?

    We do not recommend it. Extreme temperature variations will cause movement in the sub-floor that may result in gapping on the ends of the boards. They can be easily adjusted if this happens.

  • Will Ezgrip peak, curl or bubble if I drop a glass of water on it?

    No, Ezgrip is not affected by any amount of water. Standing water for extended periods of time may penetrate between the seams. Simply remove the planks in the affected area, dry the sub-floor and re-install the planks. Your cost is $0.00.
