Carbon Fiber TuffShield Flooring

Introducing New Carbon Fiber TuffShield

RaceDeck® Garage Floors introduces new Carbon Fiber style to their multi-patented TuffShield® garage flooring lineup

RaceDeck, the industry leading manufacturer and supplier of premium modular garage flooring systems, introduced a new addition to their multi-patented TuffShield Diamond garage flooring lineup. The new Carbon Fiber TuffShield combines the classic diamond plate design with the cutting-edge look of a carbon fiber pattern. Perfect for entire floors or just design accents, Carbon Fiber TuffShield is the only modular garage product to use an in-mold process guaranteeing a tough high-gloss finish that does not peel, chip, or wear.

TuffShield’s multi-patented technology delivers unmatched durability engineered to withstand the harsh garage environment. This easy to clean and hard-to-scratch surface is resistant to petroleum products and most household chemicals. The Carbon Fiber series has the look of real carbon fiber weave, without the cost and hassle. Carbon Fiber TuffShield is also a “snap” to install and as easy to maintain as the original RaceDeck TuffShield products.

“I am looking forward to seeing all of the creative garage floor installations with our new high-tech TuffShield Carbon Fiber, especially with some of the cool rides parked on them with carbon fiber accents.” – Jorgen Moller, RaceDeck CEO.

RaceDeck Garage Flooring is engineered for the garage life, withstanding even the toughest garage environments. The multi-patented system makes installation a Snap! Installs in just hours, not days; say goodbye to that toxic epoxy mess and adhesives.

3 Ways To Protect Your Cars And The Garage

Protecting your cars and garage is always worth your time and resources. As a true car enthusiast, you know the value of every single car you own and the cost of every item in your garage. The best way to protect your cars and garage from vandalism, theft, and natural causes is by investing in your garage. Here are three easy ways to protect your cars and garage:

1. Install a security system

A security system is a worthwhile investment when you consider the value of your cars and everything you have in your garage. Today’s security systems can do everything from alerting you in the event of a break-in to notifying you if there’s a fire in your garage. It’s important to add motion detectors near your windows and doors since they are access points to your garage. The use of outdoor cameras and motion-activated lighting is another way to increase security. You’ll be able to track unwanted movement outside of your garage and anything happening at night.

You can either pay to have your security system installed or go the DIY route. Opting for the professional install route may cost more but whatever you decide to do comes down to your budget and what you’re most comfortable with.

2. Frost your windows

To reduce the chances of people peeking through your garage windows, you can frost them with spray paint. Doing so prevents anyone from the outside a clear look at your cars and other valuables. If you don’t want to frost your windows but still want more privacy, consider installing curtains. Curtains can be easily removed should you decide to move. Either way, you can reduce the chance of burglaries by blocking people from looking into your garage.

3. Use self-draining RaceDeck garage flooring

Unfortunately, criminals aren’t the only threat to your cars and garage. Mold and mildew can grow which will damage your garage and the interior of your cars. Not only are mold and mildew bad for your lungs and your expertly detailed cars, but they also lead to bad odors.

A simple way to reduce mold and mildew in your garage is by using the patented self-draining RaceDeck Free-Flow garage flooring system. Every RaceDeck flooring tile is fully channeled to allow air and moisture to escape. This unique design helps eliminates odor-causing mold and mildew. With RaceDeck flooring, you also benefit from the odorless installation which means there are no toxic epoxy fumes when you lay each RaceDeck garage tile exactly how you want to.

Safety and security are important when it comes to your garage and the cars inside. With these tips, you can start to get the most out of your garage and enjoy it for years to come.

How To Pick The Perfect RaceDeck Flooring Color Combination For Your Garage

Designing and creating the coolest garage is a must. Your prized ride deserves the perfect garage. These factors include everything from making sure your garage has the space for your cars to picking the perfect RaceDeck flooring color. There are several questions you need to ask yourself when choosing your RaceDeck flooring layout and this blog post will help you do just that.

Q: Do I want to increase the brightness of my garage?

If your answer to this question is yes, it’s a good idea to choose RaceDeck tile combinations of alloy and graphite. You could also install all alloy tiles for a clean, fresh look if that’s the vibe you’re going for. Lighter colors of garage tiles also help reflect natural light well–this is great if your garage has a lot of windows. Installing light-colored garage flooring will make your garage feel spacious and open, which can feel very inviting.

Q: Do I want alternating colors that complement the colors of my cars I have in my garage?

Complementary colors are two different colors that can cancel each other out when mixed together and when placed next to each other, they create good contrast. Here are a few examples of complementary colors:

  • Blue and yellow
  • Green and red
  • Orange and blue
  • Green and purple
  • Purple and yellow

The color combinations are simple, yet help create a fun atmosphere in your garage. Color combos like blue and yellow add a bit of a pop and liven up where you show off your cars. Adding a fun bright color can also be a great way to tie in any custom paint jobs done on your vehicles.

Alternatively, you can match pieces or the whole floor to your cars, like these garages have below.

Q: What are the colors of my favorite sports team?

Going with the colors of your favorite sports team is always a great choice. It doesn’t matter if your number one team is professional or amateur. You’ll always be able to customize your RaceDeck flooring so everyone knows what color you bleed on game day!

Many RaceDeck customers create their garage around a theme, be it sports, cars, bikes, or anything they choose. See some examples of themed garages below.

 

Q: How can I create more contrast in my garage when all of my cars are the same color?

To show more of the color of your cars, one thing you can do is install RaceDeck flooring of contrasting colors to your cars. This works particularly well when your vehicles all have the same color. To create more contrast, here are three color combination ideas you can use in your garage:

  • Blue cars with all orange garage tiles
  • Yellow cars with all black garage tiles
  • Red cars with all alloy garage tiles

You could even have separate color tiles for each spot your park your cars depending on the colors of the car. This works well if not all of your cars have the same paint color, i.e. placing orange tiles only where you park your blue car.

Now that you’ve given your RaceDeck flooring color choices some thought, give us a call:

You’ve worked hard to acquire your dream rides. Only you know that truly showing them off will do them justice.

Here are a handful of reasons why true car guys choose RaceDeck flooring:

Easy To Install

Whether you’ve restored your classic cars or detail your muscle cars better than anyone else, you need to be in control of your garage.

Made In The USA

There’s nothing like supporting the American economy by purchasing products made in the USA. All RaceDeck products are 100% made in the USA which you can be proud of. Every single RaceDeck garage tile is engineered, manufactured, and shipped from our headquarters in Salt Lake City, Utah.

This proves its steadfast commitment to manufacturing and providing the highest quality products and services to its customers.

Increased Garage Safety

Another reason why car enthusiasts choose RaceDeck flooring is because of the increased safety and durability that comes with RaceDeck tiles. It’s slip-resistant when wet. This means that you reduce the chances of a slip-and-fall in the event of liquid spilling on your garage floor or when snow melts off tires after a big storm. RaceDeck flooring is not affected by moisture so you don’t have to worry about it warping when there’s an increase in humidity. There are also no toxic fumes involved in the installation of RaceDeck flooring, compared to other types of flooring which may lead to harmful odors when installed.

20-Year Limited Warranty

Just as you only do your best work when maintaining and upgrading your cars, so do we with our flooring. We offer a 20-year limited warranty to everyone who chooses RaceDeck flooring to take their garage to the next level. Should any RaceDeck floor tiles break, you can easily replace broken tiles with new tiles within 20 years of purchasing.

RaceDeck And My Classic Car Announce Coolest Garage Contest Grand Prize Winner!

Las Vegas, Nevada

Following an almost year-long search, RaceDeck and My Classic Car have announced the Grand Prize Winner for the “Coolest Garage on TV” contest!

Just moments ago, the RaceDeck crew went live via Facebook from their booth at the 2019 SEMA Show in Las Vegas, with MCC host Dennis Gage on hand to announce the winner. During the live feed, RaceDeck followers were surprised to see Dennis announce not one but two grand prize contest winners, both with garages he and his film crew will visit and feature on segments of My Classic Car.

Throughout the year, entrants with RaceDeck Floors were encouraged to submit photos and a brief history of their garage, floor, and vehicles. After viewing hundreds of awesome submissions, RaceDeck narrowed the field down to the top 10. From there, Dennis Gage chose the final winners.

“This was really a tough one. I couldn’t believe all the incredibly cool and creative garage designs people sent in! It took a while to narrow it down to the top ten and then to the top five, but in the end I just couldn’t decide between what I felt were the top two, so we decided to go with two winners. I’m really looking forward to seeing both of these in person! Should make some pretty good TV too!” – Dennis Gage, Host of My Classic Car

Congratulations to the two Grand Prize Winners with the Coolest Garages: Ted Pacha and Tony Dekellis!

Another big congratulations to our 2nd runner up, Aaron Reitman, who also sent in an amazing submission of his European garage with RaceDeck FreeFlow flooring.

Both Coolest Garage grand prize winners have won a visit from Dennis and the My Classic Car film crew. Their garages will be toured and featured on segments of MCC, a hit show on Velocity tagged as the longest-running car show on air. RaceDeck, a major sponsor of My Classic Car for a decade, was ecstatic at the opportunity to show some love to their customers. BIG thank you to all that entered. With so many rad garages and cool stories, it was a tough decision for everyone involved!

RaceDeck Garage Floors manufactures quality products in Salt Lake City, Utah. The RaceDeck crew knows what it means to love cars, bikes, and toys!
