Options for Gymnastics Landing Mats

For gymnasts, gaining new skills is the key to advancing a level. As they gain more skills, flying through the air off the different apparatuses – gracefully – is necessary for advancing to the higher levels. However, the learning process for new skills usually involves suffering more hard falls and crash landings than graceful movements, especially at first.

Even though falls are part of the learning process, painful injuries from those falls don’t have to be. When you deploy foam gymnastics landing mats at your training center, you can give the gymnasts a soft, thick crash pad that reduces hard landings and gives young gymnasts the courage to try again. At Greatmats, we have multiple crash mat sizes and thicknesses to deliver the perfect landing spot that keeps your gymnasts and cheerleaders healthier while they master new aerial tricks.

Types of Gymnastics Landing Mats

At Greatmats, we offer two types of gymnastics landing mats for your gymnasium.

Non-Folding Landing Mat

Non-folding mats are extremely durable. They often have handles sewn into the vinyl cover that makes it easier to carry these large pads around the gymnasium or studio.

You often can find non-folding mats in thicknesses up to 12 inches. Whether you are looking to deploy a thick crash pad for practice time or for a competition, these gymnastics mats have the quality you need for maximum longevity and performance.

Folding Landing Mat

Folding mats are available in a single-fold or bi-fold design. The best reason to use a folding crash mat for gymnastics is that you can create twice the thickness when you fold it in half. It’s also easier to store the folding mat between sessions.

Just like the non-folding mats, these have the quality required for either practice or competitions. Our folding gymnastics landing mats are made in the United States, so you can trust the quality of the design and materials. Folding mats are usually available in thicknesses up to 8 inches.

Athletic Landing Mat Use Types

You can use these gymnastics competition mats in a variety of situations, including:
  • Working on different gymnastics apparatuses safely
  • Cheer and gymnastics tumbling practice
  • Gymnastics skills development
  • Gymnastics practice sessions or competitions
  • School gym classes
  • Martial arts takedown sessions
  • Practice at home

Gymnastics Landing Mats Q&A

What is a landing mat or sting mat?

A landing mat or sting mat is an extremely thick mat (2.5 inches or more) that protects gymnastics students after potential falls while learning new skills.

What are the best crash landing mats for gymnastics?

The best crash landing mats for gymnastics are those that match the needs of your studio and students. Pick a thick mat with plenty of cushioning to guard against potential falls when students are working on skills from significant heights, for example.

What is the difference between a balance beam mat and a dismount mat?

What is a balance beam mat versus a dismount mat? The balance beam mat is a thick mat that goes underneath the beam. If the students fall from the beam, it protects them from hard, out-of-control landings. Dismount mats are mats placed away from the beam, giving students a softer landing space as they do flips and other aerial tricks when dismounting from the beam.

How thick should a gymnastics landing mat be?

A gymnastics landing mat thickness measurement should be enough to protect the gymnast from a hard landing. Thinner mats measuring a couple of inches are suitable underneath apparatuses that are closer to the ground. Thicker mats measuring several inches in thickness are better for taller apparatuses.

What makes a good stunt mat?

A good stunt mat needs to have the appropriate coverage size and thickness to protect athletes wherever they may fall in the gymnastics studio. They also need excellent durability for repeated use. You’ll want the ability to store them easily when they aren’t in use. Folding mats often are easier to store than non-folding mats.
