Waterhog™ Modular Forklift Mats—Installation Instructions

Waterhog Modular Forklift Mats are quick and simple to install when following the instructions below. Ensure you use the correct tape for the tiles and clean the area beforehand removing any dust or grease that may effect the adhesive properties of the tape.


Time required: 10 minutes per tile

Equipment required:

• Scissors or sharp knife to cut the tape

• Double Sided Tape. Product Code - WMF-TAPE, 3” X 108’, 13.5 Mil Thickness


Taping Instructions:

1. Place the Waterhog Modular Forklift Mat face down with rubber backing side up

2. Tape along all 4 sides of tiles as close to edge as possible

3. Inside the rectangle, create an X by placing tape sticky side down (Blue side up) from one corner diagonally to the opposite corner.

4. Place tile in the desired position. Carefully fold one half of the mat backexposing the blue tape.

5. Remove blue liner and trim back to the folded area. Then fold that half back into place and repeat on the other side.

6. To secure bond between tape and tile, apply pressure by walking around each side of the tile. At this time, installation of the tile is complete. Subsequent tiles may be placed immediately after the installed tile with the edges touching or a small gap left.
