Frequently Asked Questions
How long has RaceDeck been around?

The RaceDeck product is in its second decade with tens of millions of feet installed worldwide. We are a family company that produce the highest quality products, all made right here in the USA. Unlike other companies in this industry, we engineer and build our own molds as well as manufacture all of our own flooring products at our ISO 9001:2008 certified facility in Salt Lake City, Utah. No other company can make this statement, at least not truthfully.

We use only the best high-impact copolymers when we manufacture our modular floor - no rubber, no PVC, no fillers, no foaming agents. This means your floor will not stain from any petroleum products spilled on it.
US vs THEM
Why RaceDeck? (Us vs. Them)
RaceDeck : 100% USA Made - When we say "USA Made" we mean it. Our floors are designed, engineered, tooled, molded, and manufactured under one roof in Salt Lake City, Utah.
RaceDeck : Superior Molding Technology - We have over 34 years experience in modular flooring manufacture. In that time, we have developed proprietary processes that result in the most durable floors in the world. Our patented single flow injection molding system ensures material flows consistently throughout the mold from a single point, leaving no break or flow points. This process is expensive, but the results are invaluable.
RaceDeck : PowerLock™ System : RaceDeck’s multi-patented PowerLock™ System is engineered to handle the heaviest loads. When engaged, the locks actually become part of the superstructure, strengthening the floor. What’s more, the PowerLock™ System lets the floor expand and contract naturally in garages with big temperature variations.
RaceDeck : Our flooring withstands rolling vehicle loads in excess of 50,000 pounds - The industry’s toughest!
RaceDeck : We use premium grade high-impact copolymers in our manufacturing process. This means no fillers, foam agents, lead, or other foreign materials compromise the integrity of our flooring. This ensures they hold up in even the harshest garages.
RaceDeck : We are the world’s leading manufacturer and supplier of modular garage flooring and the creators of the modular garage flooring industry you see today. We produce more modular flooring each month than our competitors produce in a year - combined! We have manufactured over 100 million feet of flooring since we began.
Keeping your RaceDeck garage floor looking new year after year is easy. Because RaceDeck is made with non porous high-impact polymers, it resists stains from all petroleum products, anti-freeze, brake fluid and most household chemicals. This means if your garage floor gets dirty, its on the surface not in it, unlike paints , epoxies, and VCT tiles that stain.
We recommend using any non-sudsing ammonia cleaner to wipe away scuff marks, RaceDeck offers a commercial grade cleaning line as well. You really want to stay away from cleaners that leave a residue or film after you have cleaned ( Ex; Simply Green ), as it will act like a magnet for dust and debris. For stubborn grease and tire marks you can simply take a rag with a small bit of solvent on it ( such as Goof Off, Mineral Spirits, etc) and rub off and dry. * only use a few drops on a rag and clean one small area at a time.
