Bold and colorful, they will brighten your walls and fill your gymnasium with school spirit. We have these wall mats in many common school colors and they look fantastic.

These custom gym wall padding provide professional-caliber safety and protection in gyms, schools, and universities. They are solid, wood-backed, vinyl-wrapped gym wall pads. We offer these products in a number of custom sizes and thicknesses. A standard gym wall pad is a 2 inch thick, cross-linked polyethylene foam wrapped in a durable 14 oz. vinyl cover. These are the same standard wall mats you will find in major universities across the country and around the world.

Gym wall padding comes in a variety of thicknesses, colors, and sizes so you are sure to find exactly what you’re looking for. These pads are perfect for walls behind basketball hoops, in wrestling rooms, and on the walls of any facility where you want to show off your school spirit. Digital printing is also available so you can get the highest quality graphics available on your wall padding for gyms.

If your gym is like countless others, you will probably find you have unique challenges to work around with your wall pads. Wall outlets, light switches, and other areas need to be accessible even after the wall pads are mounted. At Greatmats, we can help accommodate you with these unique needs. Our wall pads can be custom designed around your particular obstacles so that they attach perfectly while still leaving exposed the things you need accessible. We can even custom pad your gym doors around the handles and windows.

Installing your wall pads is made easier with Z-clips. Simply attach the clips to the back of the pads by screwing them into the plywood backing of the panels. The other side of the clip is then screwed into the wall. Unsightly mounting hardware is concealed behind the wall pads. Our wall padding for gymnasiums can be directly attached to concrete block walls or wooden studs. Upper and lower lip options are available so that you can easily replace and repair vinyl as needed. Panel can be Class A rated for fire resistance.

We also offer a heavy duty vinyl upgrade to 19 oz for excessive abuse. An outdoor mat is available with UV protection against the sun and an 18 oz. vinyl cover. These mats feature a 30 oz foam and a moisture-resistant composite wood backing.

Our wall pads come in various installation types including direct wall attachment and Z-clip installations. You can also opt for a hook and loop attachment option. This allows you to take the pads from the wall and use them as folding gym mats on the floor. Greatmats also provides these pads custom designed so you can work around windows, doors, wall cutouts, and electrical switches. Column and pole pads are also available.

Some gyms, wrestling facilities, and other athletic rooms have I-beams and other square, rectangular, or oddly shaped objects running along the walls. Some of these support structures are even placed a few feet from the walls. Obviously, these structures need to be wrapped in padding for the safety of your athletes. Customized column pads are a great solution to this problem.

Column wall pads are available in the same colors and vinyl thicknesses as our standard wall pads. We can have the perfect sizes and shapes cut to fit to your specs for any random obstacle that your gym has. Wood-backed and built of high quality foam and a thick vinyl, our custom column pads are sure to last for years to come even under the challenging environments of gymnasiums. They are bright and colorful and look great in athletic facilities of all types.
