Our custom gym wall padding provides professional-caliber safety and protection in gyms, schools and universities. These pads are solid, wood-backed, vinyl-wrapped gym wall pads. We offer these products in custom sizes and thicknesses. Our standard gym wall mats are the same padded wall mats you will find in major universities across the country and around the world.

While the standard wall padding thickness is 2 inches, Greatmats offers gym wall padding in a variety of thicknesses, colors and sizes, so you are sure to find exactly what you're looking for. These wall mats are perfect behind basketball hoops, in wrestling rooms, martial arts academy, gymnastics training rooms and on the walls of any facility where you want to show off your school spirit.

Many gyms have unique challenges to work around when installing wall pads. Wall outlets, light switches and other areas need to be accessible even after the wall padding is mounted. At Greatmats, we can help accommodate these unique needs. Our wall pads can be custom designed around your obstacles so that they attach perfectly while still leaving exposed the areas you need accessible. We can even custom pad your gym doors around the handles and windows.

Installing 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. Panels can be Class A rated for fire resistance.

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

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 may present. 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.

Our pole pads and post padding is a common solution for covering steel support poles in basements and goal post bases on football fields. These pads simple wrap around the pole and connects to itself using a 2-inch hook and loop fastening flap. Keep in mind that pole pads are not UV treated and should not be left outdoors when not in use.

We also offer folding gym mats of all sizes for temporary and mobile wall padding use. This is one easy way to change the thickness of your wall padding to fit budgetary or usage concerns. Folding gym mats generally range from 1.5 to 2.5 inches in thickness and are often more economical than traditional gym wall padding. This makes them a great option for padding your home gym or home studio walls.

Many of the wall padding options available through Greatmats are anti-fungal and anti-bacterial and rarely does wall padding require special adhesives.
