It has a 50,000 pound rolling rating. I can only report on when I used a single large crow bar to leverage up a fully loaded 48" double drawer filing cabinet and the crow bar left absolutely no mark or indent at all from all of that weight.

but that probably weights 200 lbs, there must be some forum members here who have this floor and used a jack? please post your thoughts

I had a H1 Hummer on a jack stand for over a week and no damage on RubberFloor version of tile. After taking up the jack stand i could see a impression from all 4 corners of the jack stand. but later couldn't find the marks again. Tile rebounded after a little bit. I didn't pickup the truck with a floor jack (used a lift), but the jack stands are a much sharper edge then wheels on a floor jack.

You are correct that it was in the couple hundred pound category but when I raised it up most of that weight was concentrated on about a 1 1/2 inch by 1/2 area of the contact point between the crow bar and RaceDeck tile. I also used my rolling floor jack to lift up my golf cart to put it on stands, but again not a car. No marks left from the jacks casters. But hopefully some of our members who have used a jack with RaceDeck will respond.

It's a non issue. I have used a floor jack and my brother builds hot rods and has it in his garage also. He has used floor jacks and jack stands. Heavy stuff like 60's model suburbans etc.

See my pictures in post #1 for the yellow RaceDeck I have in my garages. Should be pretty close to what you need.:cool:

I don't think I have ever seen a basement Bilco door inside a garage! Interesting!

Thinking of doing a RaceDeck project in our 3 car garage - similar to this one I found on the interwebs. Any additional words of wisdom before I pull the trigger? Thanks, Mike
