I've been looking at doing the floor in my garage ever since we moved into our house in 2012, always seemed like there was something else that needed doing first....

I've looked at most of the popular options and was going to go with Mototile, but have finally taken the plunge and have actually gone with Swisstrax/Ribtrax

https://www.swisstrax.com/flooring-tiles/ribtrax/

I have all the tiles now, going for a black and grey checkerboard pattern, planning on attempting to put them down at the weekend. I'm not known for my DIY skills, so see how we go!

Ended up going the Swisstrax/Ribtrax route in the end, mainly due to watching Matt from Obsessed Garage on Youtube and seeing his garage builds.

I'll post up some pictures once it's done

Only trouble I see with that is when dirt etc gets stuck in the slats. How do you get it out?

Yes, I was originally concerned, but it seems easily vacuumed out and I like the fact that water can fall between the slats and evaporate, rather than sit on the tiles themselves.

As I say, seeing it documented on Obsessed garage and his experience with it were the deciding factor for me, hopefully i've made the right decision, been thinking about it long enough!

I have been looking at floors for ages and still can't make up my mind!

Do you have a link to where you bought the Swisstrax, as I can only see the USA site.

No online prices. Don’t like that!

How much for what space are you paying?
