Heavy Duty Parking Tile Ideas for Indoor & Outdoor Parking

Grey Coatated

Parking tiles, also known as driveway tiles or paver tiles, are specially designed tiles used for various types of parking areas, including residential driveways, commercial parking lots, and outdoor recreational spaces. These tiles have specific features that make them suitable for parking applications.

Here are some key features to consider for different types of parking tiles:


Parking tiles should be highly durable to withstand the weight of vehicles and constant traffic. They should resist cracking, chipping, and wear and tear.

  • Load-Bearing Capacity
  • Different parking areas accommodate various vehicle sizes and weights. Parking tiles must have a high load-bearing capacity to support cars, trucks, and other vehicles.

  • Low Water Absorption
  • Parking tiles with low water absorption rates are essential to prevent moisture from penetrating the tiles and causing damage, especially in freezing conditions.

  • Frost & Thermal Resistance
  • In cold climates, parking tiles should be frost-resistant to prevent cracking and damage caused by freezing and thawing cycles. Parking tiles should also be resistant to damage due to thermal expansion in outdoor settings.

  • Longevity
  • High-quality parking tiles should have a long service life, reducing the need for frequent replacements.

Surface Features

Parking tiles need to bear tyre movements and other harsh activity on the surface. Thus, additional features like the following are important for parking tiles:

  • Slip Resistance
  • To ensure safety, parking tiles should have slip-resistant surfaces, especially in outdoor areas where they may be exposed to rain or snow.

  • Stain Resistance
  • Oil, grease, and other automotive fluids can stain parking tiles. Stain-resistant tiles are easier to clean and maintain.

  • Easy Maintenance
  • Parking tiles should be relatively easy to clean and maintain to ensure they retain their appearance over time.

Other Features of Parking Tiles

  • Modular Design
  • Interlocking or modular parking tiles are designed to fit together seamlessly, providing stability, and preventing shifting or displacement.

  • UV Resistance
  • Outdoor parking tiles should be UV-resistant to prevent fading and maintain their colour and appearance when exposed to sunlight.

  • Chemical Resistance
  • Parking tiles for industrial floors, workshops, etc. also bear spills of chemicals like oil and grease. Thus, the tiles should remain intact under such exposure and retain its strength and skid-resistance properties.

Choose Eco-Friendly Options

Some parking tiles are made from recycled materials or have eco-friendly certifications, which can be a consideration for environmentally conscious projects.

When selecting parking tiles, it's crucial to assess the specific needs of the parking area, such as the type of vehicles it will accommodate, the climate, and the desired aesthetic. Consulting with a professional or manufacturer specialising in parking tiles can help you choose the right tiles that meet your project's requirements.

The tiles have a thickness of 1 cm and surface hardness of above 7 Mohs scale which is equivalent to some of the hardest materials on earth such as quartz.

Endura Max Grip Tiles

Endura Max-Grip tiles offer more design and application options for outdoor areas including parking. The tiles offer a skid resistance value from R9 to R13 and you can select tiles as per your surface quality needs.

R11 and R12 tiles are better for ramps and sloped surfaces like the pathway leading to the underground parking area. These 1 cm thick tiles are available in two different sizes 60x60cm and 40x40 cm, and various colours.

Industrial & Auto Workshop Floor Options

Industrial & Auto Workshop

Industrial floors and automobile workshops need a floor that can handle a lot more than normal vehicular movement. Oil spills, falling tools, and hard tractor wheels are all commonplace on an industrial floor. Also, the floor often needs permanent markers to segregate areas without raising barriers to movement.

Johnson's Endura Plain Series tiles are purposely made to fulfil these very requirements. The tiles are available in a range of solid colour options with thicknesses ranging from 1.2cm to 2cm. The tiles have a very high tensile strength and extremely low maintenance cost.

The best parking tile depends on the kind of vehicle traffic you expect in the parking. Porcelain tiles like the Johnson Endura Designer Collection (EDC) tiles are good for low-traffic home parking, while you can use Johnson Endura Max-Grip tiles for commercial parking areas. Both tiles are available with thickness of 1.2, 1.5 and 2 cms. Industrial parking can use tiles of adequate thickness as per the expected load.

No, parking tiles feature non-slip surface texture and high surface resistance. The anti-skid surface provides adequate grip to the vehicles and pedestrians even when wet. If you are installing tiles on a ramp to your parking, you can choose tiles with a higher grip to the tune of R11 and R12.

Parking tile thickness usually defines their load-bearing capacity. So, if you expect heavy vehicles in the parking, you should choose a higher thickness for the parking tiles.
