The Greatmats interlocking Economy 1/2 Inch tiles provide a great value for anyone seeking to place a safe and soft matted flooring solution over virtually any hard surface.


This interlocking foam matting measures 12 mm in thickness, giving it just enough cushion while remaining an economical option. Our foam mat product features an easy-to-clean, non-slip thatch surface.

Foam Mat Color Creativity

The 2x2 foam mats are available in a few different color options, meaning you can create your own custom designs in your foam matting. You can choose from gray, blue, or black foam mats. No matter which color you choose, all of the tiles have the same interlocking pattern on the edges, meaning even foam tiles of different colors will fit together easily.

Some customers will pick the color that best fits within the design of the current room where they'll be installed. Others like to use the different colors in our custom foam mat tiles to create patterns within the flooring.

If you're using them in an area where children are taking classes or playing, for example, you could create areas in the room of different colors for different activities, making it easy for the kids to figure out which area of the room they need to move to for the next activity.

Color and shade may vary somewhat from mat to mat within the same order. This is common with EVA foam matting.

Foam Mats for Dog Agility

Because of the no-slip surface texture of the this foam tile, it can be used for dog agility flooring when installed upside down.

You can expect to see some toenail scuffing, puncturing, indentations, or other markings in the surface of the mats when you use them as dog agility mats. This is aesthetic concern for some customers when it initially occurs. However, these surface markings and indentations will not affect the performance of the agility mats or change the mat's ability to provide maximum anti-fatigue cushion and traction.

Easy Foam Mat Installation

These tiles can be placed directly over any hard, flat surface and cut to fit for a custom foam mats installation. Simply interlock the foam mat puzzle tiles together and use.

Each mat measures 2 by 2 feet and covers 4 square feet. There is a slight loss of coverage area of 3/8 inches per tile because of the interlocking edge on the mats.

Allow the foam mats to acclimate to your room before installation. Just place the mats in the room in which they will be installed at least 24 hours before beginning the installation process. By allowing the tiles to adjust to the temperature and humidity in the room, the possibility of expansion or shrinking will be greatly reduced.

However, should the heat or humidity levels in the room change over time, the foam may expand, so we recommend that you allow at least a 1/4 inch expansion gap for wall to wall installations.

If you need to cut the mats to allow them to fit against a wall, you can cut them with a utility knife and a straight edge. You may need to switch to a new, sharp blade if the mats begin to fray as you're cutting them.

This particular tile product doesn't include border strips for finished edges. To achieve a straight outer edge, you'll just cut the tiles to fit against the wall, removing the interlocking edge. If you would prefer to have a type of foam mat that has a finished border strip option, just contact our Greatmats customer service team, and we can help you find a different model of foam tile to meet your needs. There are several options at Greatmats.

No Adhesive Required

These foam mats are lightweight and portable. Each tile weighs only 1.2 pounds, so it's easy for one person to handle the installation. As an added bonus, you can easily disassemble and remove the tiles at any time, should you need to return to the original flooring or change the look.

No adhesive is required during the installation process, because the foam matting tiles interlock together tightly. This tight fit ensures that the tiles will not buckle or pop out of place when installed correctly over a hard, flat surface and allowing suffiently for expansion. However, if you're installing this flooring in an area to be used for aerobics activities, do not place the foam mats on top of carpeting, as the mats can shift and slide.

Additionally, we do not recommend leaving the foam mats exposed to sunlight and outdoor weather conditions for extended periods of time. You can use these tiles outdoors for an activity, but we recommend that you disassemble them and store them indoors after each use. When used outside, the foam matting may expand and curl if exposed to direct sunlight.

High-End Construction Foam Mat

This foam mat product can be used in homes and schools. It consists of a waterproof material that also is color safe, meaning you don't have to worry about the color from the mats rubbing off onto clothing or other objects that come in contact with them.

The foam mats are durable, easy to install, and will last for years. Use our foam matting on a basement floor, in a kids playroom, or in the garage, and it will stand up to wear and tear. Each tile carries a 1-year manufacturer's warranty.

We ensure that each tile is manufactured within allowable thickness tolerances. By keeping each tile at the proper thickness level, we ensure the tiles won't have weak spots that could cause buckling under normal use.

Using EVA Foam

EVA foam, short for ethylene-vinyl acetate foam, offers a softness and flexibility that resembles rubber flooring. It has a buoyancy and shock absorption capability as well. Our economical foam tiles have just enough of a shock absorption ability that they work great in a child's play area, where children can have a softer landing should they trip and fall while running. It also absorbs shock as a dog runs across the floor while participating in an agility class and offers fatigue relief for people who stand for long periods of time.

EVA foam makes use of a closed cell construction, which gives the foam its waterproof capabilities, while also making it a tough material that stands up to wear and tear. The closed cell construction gives people using the tile a firmer surface when trying to make sudden movements, such as for aerobics or home martial arts training. Softer tiles could cause the foot to sink into the tile too far when pushing off, potentially increasing the possibility of a rolled ankle.

This foam is a lighter weight option than rubber, making it easy to install and carry the tiles.

Maintenance Tip

After installing the mats, you do should follow a few tips for use, as outlined below. Keeping an eye on how the mats are used and maintained will lengthen the usable lifespan of the foam matting.

General Cleaning: When cleaning Foam Mat Economy 1/2 Inch tiles, you can sweep them with a broom or make use of a vacuum cleaner. Have your vacuum cleaner set at its highest setting above the floor.

Washing: If you have a good drainage option where you've installed the foam mats, you can use a hose and nozzle to clean the tiles with a spray of water. However, don't use a power water pressure head.

Mopping: You also can use a mop and warm water on the mats for a more thorough cleaning. Do not use a bleach based cleaning product on the tiles, but most general household floor cleaners will be safe to use.

Avoid Steam: We do not recommend using steam cleaning with these foam mats, as this process may heat up the tiles and cause them to expand.

Avoid Sharp Objects: Sharp objects delivered at high levels of pressure, such as a high heel on a shoe, can puncture the foam matting, so be careful about what kind of shoes you allow on the tiles. This is also why we do not rate these foam tiles for use in high traffic areas.

Avoid Heavy Objects: If you plan to place heavy objects onto these mats, such as a weight bench or weight machine, they will indent. We'd suggest placing a thick rubber mat product over the top of the foam matting, and then place the heavy object on the rubber mat.

Before doing any cleaning with a household floor cleaner or with a vacuum, we recommend you do a test cleaning in an area of the floor where any discoloration or damage that occurs is not noticeable. Some cleansers may be strong enough to discolor the floor, and some vacuum cleaners also could damage the floor.

If you're ready to order our foam tiles for your home or business, just contact our knowledgeable customer service team, which is ready to help you. Members of the team can help you calculate exactly how many tiles you need, which can be a little tricky if you're trying to create different colored patterns within the flooring. Additionally, we can send you a free sample of the tile, so you can see the quality of the construction.

Q & A⌃ Back to top
Ask a question about this product

Product Questions:

Do then mats include trim pieces with an order? Thanks you.
This product does not come with border strips, other foam tiles we offer do come with border strips.
Since no borders are available can the edges be trimmed. Also I tried to order in black but it was not on the pulldown menu. Is black available?
When in stock all the colors shown on this page are available. The tiles can be cut or trimmed using a sharp utility knife as needed.
What is the best glue to glue two pieces of foam mats together to make a thicker piece?
We also sell similar foam tiles in 7/8 inch and 1 5/8 inch thickness. The foam can be glued using contact cement.
Will these mats hold up to weights and weight benches or would I need to put another mat of some sort down on top of it?
The foam tiles will indent with the weight of equipment, one could put a rubber mat under the equipment.
Are these waterproof? I want to use them for my dog, who sometimes has accidents in the house, and need to protect the flooring. Will the urine seep through and into the mat? And then into the floor? Thanks
They are about 99.5 percent waterproof, they can be scratched by dog paws. Moisture will be seep into the foam material, but might get between the seams.
Could this floor be out over carpet?
For kids maybe, but not for exercise, the mats can slip around over the carpet.
Can you tell me what type of paint I could use, that would be durable, if I wanted to customize?
We do not have any suggestions for painting this tile.

This is the second time I've purchased the mats...I use them as floor coverings between the hardwood floor and an area carpet. They are great insulation and waterproof (I have pets). If you're looking for a way to store them, pick up the IKEA bag that is square and they fit perfectly. I keep spares safely away for if I need them.

Excellent quality, great value


Grand Rapids, MI

Customer Rating:


We installed these easily ourselves in our basement laundry room which has a cement floor. It looks clean, bright, and is soft to walk on. The floor looks great and warms up the room! Ordering was easy and they were delivered to our door. The only draw back is the fact that there isn't an option for ordering a finished edge to the border of the mats. Otherwise, I highly recommend this product!

Cushions the floor, insulates, easy to install and clean. I purchased and donated these tiles to our local animal shelter. They needed to get two litters of puppies off the cold concrete flooring this winter. The staff are asking for more tiles to use in the intake kennels


Clay Center, KS

Customer Rating:


I wanted a floor for a home gym in my shed that had cement floors. This worked perfectly. The feel and texture are perfect. Only four stars because it did not come with trim to cover the puzzle edges. If I would have know that I would have bought some.

Received and installed the mats just last weekend. They are easy to install, very easy to cut to fit corners, walls, and around poles. While they haven't been installed long, they seem very durable. Transformed the top portion of our basement from unusable to a giant play area.

The mats I purchased from great mats are amazing! I am a school teacher and the kids jump, walk, nap, sit does whatever they want and they are still brand new! I wanted to write the review in September but for a teacher September is a crazy busy time. So finally, I am able to write. Not only are the mats great, but customer service is great also. One mat came damaged and without even asking whats wrong they mailed me a new one. I would buy from them again! :)
I love them! The kids love them! Its strong, comfortable and well made! Need I say more?
