Can I lay the floor on soil or grass?
Yes, our floors can be placed on compacted soil or grass however a hard, flat surface must be placed underneath first to ensure the patented interlocking technology remains securely locked for the duration of the event.
In the case of uneven surfaces or a lush surface you are recommended to find a suitable sub-surface to place under the floors or our modular floor could become uneven and might interfere with or inter-locking system not working correctly.
Are the floors suitable for outdoor use?
Yes, our industrial strength floors are engineered to be 100% weather-proof and can be used outdoors in partially shaded areas or for short durations only. We do not recommend laying a floor in direct sunlight for extended periods of time.
Is a floor easy to install or should I hire a professional?
The beauty of a SnapLock dance and event floor is that it is completely modular so you can DIY install – no tools or training needed. With its patented “Step-N-Snap” design, you’ll find installation a breeze! Visit our installation page to view a demo.

We offer an installation service to customers based in the Melbourne metropolitan region for a small additional fee. Please enquire at the time of order.
Is removal easy too?

Do the floors need to be maintained?
