Options for Sensory Room Mats

When attempting to create a room suitable for children with autism, special needs, or who simply need a break from the classroom, selecting the right sensory room mats is important for a successful installation. Whether you want to help children with special needs or provide safe spaces during therapy sessions, therapeutic floor mats from Greatmats can deliver the desired environment.

Greatmats offers multiple types of flooring, wall padding, and standalone mats of varying shapes that deliver textures and cushioning to protect and stimulate those using the room. Our products work for use at home, at school, or at a medical facility.

Types of Floor Mats for Sensory Room Uses

Having different textures on the mats is a desirable option. When students or kids are sitting on the floor in the sensory room, the texture can be an important part of creating the right kind of stimulation.

If customers prefer creating a sensory room that features multiple colors, our products are available in bright, bold, or neutral colors to match the desired look for the room.

Some of Greatmats’ specific types of flooring options include:
  • Puzzle edge interlocking floor mats
  • Folding gym floor mats
  • Roll-out foam floor mats
  • Wall mats
  • I-beam mats
  • Pole padding
  • Column padding
  • Landing mats
  • Incline mats
  • Octagon mats

Materials in Sensory Room Flooring

These mats and materials will have a durable design, ensuring they will last. Some of the most important materials found in our wall mats and padded flooring include the following.
  • Vinyl Cover: Pads of all sizes and shapes often contain a vinyl cover that creates durability. The vinyl protects the cushioned foam on the interior. The vinyl layer also gives the pad its desired shape for use on the wall or floor.
  • Cushioned Foam: Inside the vinyl cover, you’ll often find a soft foam padding that’s up to 2 inches in thickness. This foam absorbs impact when someone crashes into it, falls on it, or jumps on it, keeping everyone safe.
  • Firm Foam: Floors made up of sensory room mats can feature a wide range of materials, all of which are durable. The interlocking floor mats consist of firm foam, which has a good mix of durability and cushioning.
  • Plastic: Artificial grass rolls and some tiles will consist of flexible plastic, such as PVC, polypropylene, or polyethylene. These materials are comfortable, yet durable.
  • Padded Carpet Tiles: Carpet tiles with foam backing are another option for a comfortable sensory room floor.

Where to Use Sensory Room Mats

These items will appear in a sensory room, helping a child or adult with developmental disabilities or autism to have a calm, safe place to relax as needed. They also help children who need stimulation to improve their fine motor skills.

Sensory rooms are useful in places like schools, libraries, and daycares. By using padding and comfortable materials, kids who struggle to calm down can remain safe from harm.

Homeowners can use them, too, in places like:
  • Kids’ bedroom
  • Kids’ playroom
  • Basement family room
  • Indoor playground or soft play area
  • Kids’ quiet room

These wall pads and floor mats are also suitable for a range of use cases, such as athletic gyms, gymnastics studios, martial arts studios, or home gyms.

For customers who would like to be able to install these sensory mats for autism or special needs on their own, the majority of our products are easy to install. Standalone mats, such as octagonal and wedge mats, are meant to be portable, so do not use adhesive on them.
