Types of Foam Mats

A foam mat is one of the most popular types of DIY flooring that we sell at Greatmats. Customers appreciate the versatility they offer, the cushioning they provide, the surprising durability, the great price point, and the ease of installation.

Foam flooring can be thick and soft, or it can be a thin model that delivers firmness for quick movements. We offer rolls, fold-up mats, and individual interlocking foam mats to cover a large space quickly.

Is EVA foam good for home gym flooring?

Foam EVA tiles work well for home gyms. They have cushioning properties that are perfect for keeping you safe and feeling fresher after hard workouts. They are not suitable for barbells, heavy weights, or large pieces of workout equipment, as the foam can crush down under heavy weights.

Can foam mats be used outside?

Only use them for a permanent outdoor installation if they're protected with strong vinyl. For outdoor installations at stadiums and ballfields, for example, we have outdoor-rated foam padding options for walls. You also can use foam EVA puzzle mats for temporary outdoor flooring in certain circumstances.
