With 20 years of experience in the flooring industry, it’s almost impossible to ignore the growing need to use flooring outdoors & in a range of weathers – a product that our key customers, distributors and domestic customers commonly ask for. We have recently introduced a new product to our range. Ecotile Lifestyle, a durable tile suitable for outdoor use.

We have been working extremely hard to develop a product that can meet this requirement and eliminate the remaining problems that the original E500 range can not solve. Ecotile Lifestyle is the newest member of the product family – an outdoor flooring range designed to remain durable and smart in all weather conditions.
A restriction we commonly face with Ecotile is expansion under direct sunlight. Our tiles are manufactured using PVC, so they expand when they get too hot – this can cause the floor to lose it’s shape until it cools down again. This is why we do not recommend using the E500 tile outdoors. Our new outdoor flooring products (Ecotile Lifestyle) are manufactured with polypropylene; a 100% recyclable thermoplastic polymer that has been UV stabilised. This material can withstand high temperatures and is not affected by sunlight. In addition to this, our outdoor flooring range is non staining – in other words tyre marks will not stain the floor!
To accommodate for harsh weather, the tile has been designed with several self draining channels; a structured linear system of holes that allow water to flow through the tile and drain away. The holes also allow for excellent airflow which helps the tiles to stay cool in fluctuating temperatures – A perfect solution for swimming pool surrounds that get really hot & hard to work on in hot countries.
The tile itself is 380mm x 380mm (7 to a square meter) and is available in a wide range of colours. Lifestyle can withstand weights of up to 500 ton/m2. They can also be Cable Managed using our Cable Insert Strips and Cable Squares. Simply remove a Cable Square to allow the cable to come up through the floor and plug into your appliance.
A perfect addition to the range
Just like all of our tiles, Ecotile Lifestyle is easily installed using connectors and joints that eliminate the need for adhesives, screeds and additional bonding agents.Tapping a rubber mallet or similar over the protruding rings easily interlocks the tiles together. This means they can be installed just as quickly as the E500 range and will not cause downtime during installation. In addition to this, the tiles are easy to maintain and can be washed very easily. Dust can be vacuumed up through the holes in the tile.
Lifestyle’s multi-functional properties can solve your flooring problems indoors and out.
