What Gymnastics Foam Wedge Mats Do for Gymnasts

Folding Or Non-Folding?
At Greatmats, we offer incline wedge mats that are both folding and non-folding. The non-folding mats are solid mats that provide excellent support and cushion.
On the other hand, our folding mats offer a little more versatility. The mats fold in half, with the folded mat making the shape of a square. When folded up, the mats offer additional height for training and provide a flat, even surface. This makes the mat useful as a table and increases the potential uses for the mat. When folded up, the mats take up less floor space, making it easier to store them away when space is limited.
Additionally, our folding incline wedge mats are available in a greater size range:
- Non-folding mats range from 24 to 60 inches wide and 48 to 84 inches long. Their heights range from 14 to 18 inches.
- Folding mats range from 24 to 72 inches wide and have lengths up to 144 inches. They can be as tall as 22 inches.
Folding wedge mats are a little bit more expensive than non-folding options, but the price difference is truly minimal. The folding mats offer some advantages, so it's up to you to decide which option is truly right for your needs.
