24x24 Inch Foam Mats

When many people think of foam, they think of a soft, cushioned material that is not going to stand up to tough conditions. However, with 2x2 foam tiles from Greatmats, customers receive a highly durable style of flooring that resembles the durability of rubber with a bit more cushioning to guard against falls.


Foam floor tiling options are easy to install and highly portable. This allows for a DIY installation that can handle a wide range of usage options at a low price. Customers often purchase our 2x2 foam tiles in bulk to create an even greater value.

Size and Shape Options


Each of these mats has a squarish size measuring 2-by-2 feet. However, because the edges make use of a jigsaw puzzle style edge, rather than a flat edge, customers do not quite receive the coverage size of 4 square feet that they would expect, usually receiving a little less than 4 square feet of coverage apiece.

Our customer service team at Greatmats can help you figure out the exact number of tiles you need to order for the best results.

Multiple thickness measurement options are available for our 2x2 foam tiles. A greater thickness level will create additional cushioning for standing and exercising and for guarding against falls. Foam provides cushioning for the athlete’s ankle, knee, and hip joints.

Thickness options include 3/8 inches, 1/2 inches, 5/8 inches, 3/4 inches, 1 inch, and 1.5 inches, among others.

Material Options


If you are thinking these 2x2 foam tiles make use of the same kind of foam you might find in a chair cushion, you are mistaken. Our manufacturers typically use EVA foam for flooring.

EVA, or ethylene vinyl acetate, is a closed cell type of foam that offers the firmness needed for flooring, yet it also has flexibility and cushioning that are ideal for protecting against falls. Closed cell foam is firmer than open cell foam, which is commonly found in cushions.

Pattern and Texture Options


Our 2x2 foam tiles are especially popular for installation in a kids’ playroom or bedroom at home. Some of these tiles are available in non-traditional solid colors, such as green, purple, blue, red, pink and orange.

When using this style of interlocking mat in a gym that holds martial arts classes, customers may want to select a model of tile that has a tatami texture surface. This tatami design does not cause skin burns when people fall on the mats and slide across them.

Some types of foam tiles will create a more formal look. For those who prefer wood flooring, but who don’t want the expense or maintenance requirements of actual wood, look for tiles that have an appearance that resembles an actual wood grain plank layout.

Another option is to select tiles that have a foam base layer and a carpet top. This is one of the easiest ways to create a carpet floor with a cushioned layer underneath, as installers do not have to wrestle with a heavy roll of carpet and padding.

Common Use Options


Residential customers will use our large 2x2 foam tiles in any areas where they want a durable and cushioned floor. They also may use these tiles in areas of the home where they want the look and feel of carpet or wood flooring without the hassle of installing these items.

Martial arts studios appreciate the level of cushioning and durability they receive from these tiles. When working on throws, having a cushioned floor is an important measure of protection for the students.

In areas where kids will be playing and eating snacks, a cushioned floor that will not soak up spills is a popular choice. We offer multiple foam mats made for use around children.

We even have some highly durable foam tiles that will work in place of rubber in gymnasiums, workout rooms, or even horse stalls. Using foam in these areas creates a lightweight flooring versus rubber, but it doesn’t sacrifice much in the way of durability and longevity.

Installation Options


Installation of these foam puzzle mats is an easy process. You do not need experience with installing flooring to be able to handle this job.

Just line up the tabs on one tile with the slots on the next tile and press them together. The tiles will remain connected, even under busy foot traffic patterns, without the need for glue.

By not using glue, customers can install these floors for an event and then disassemble them quickly to return the room to the subfloor.

Cleaning and Maintenance Requirements


To remove dust and other dry debris from the surface of the mats, use a broom. A powerful vacuum cleaner could damage the mats, so test your vacuum in a location hidden from view.

Do not damp mop these tiles with cleaners that have any bleach in them. A neutral pH cleaner diluted with water should handle the process successfully. Allow the surface of the foam to dry naturally in the air.
