Although garage floor mats, also known as garage flooring, have been popular with car enthusiasts and collectors for years, Galt Technologies indicates that they are currently becoming popular with high-end homeowners. Garage discs can provide more than just a decorative option. Some materials are non-porous and can help minimize cleaning, repel grease stains and provide an additional layer of soft, cushioned, low-profile car tires.

Cement can be an expensive choice of flooring as a replacement, but it is necessary to use it as a base product before adding decorative flooring options such as high-impact polymer pads. The cement can be customized with details of stamping, painting, texturing or even staining for a visually more decorative result.
Today’s garage discs are made in a variety of models and colors, from a high impact polymer material, designed to resist stains and provide easy cleaning. The large companies in the markets such as GarageTrak, Tuffshield, GarageDeck, MotoFloor and RaceDeck that all offer a variety of products that are marketed as do-it-yourself, interlocking models that do not require tools, fasteners or glue for the mounting. An alternative to the wall-to-wall version of the interconnect modules is the free-flow parking platform, composed of the same material but which rolls in one piece and acts as a carpet, covering only the parking area below the vehicle.
