Our Greatmats cheerleading mats are manufactured to the highest standard in the industry. Our cheer mats feature a high quality, 26-ounce needle-punch carpet top that's flame-bonded to a cross-link polyethylene foam. This carpet bonded foam construction ensures the highest quality possible in cheerleading mats.
Greatmats features portable and moveable cheerleading rolls for cheer competitions, high school and university practice squads, and for All Star cheer clubs.
When considering a cheerleading mat, you want it to provide durability as well as a cushioned landing spot for tumblers, jumpers, and stunters. Continue reading to learn more about all of the different features Greatmats offers in our various cheer mat options.
Greatmats flame-bonded technique for attaching the foam to the carpet top ensures the highest quality of cheerleading mat. These long-lasting mats will stand up to hour after hour of practice without failing. Some manufacturers use a gluing process to attach the carpet top to the foam, but this glue will give way after a while. The flame-bonding process ensures a longer lasting construction.
The needle-punch carpet creates just the right blend of softness, traction and durability for cheerleading mats. Additionally, our carpet top is extremely durable, ensuring that our Greatmats cheer mat rolls will last a long time without looking worn or suffering a loss of performance. Needle-punch carpeting is the strongest type of carpeting offered. Our 26-ounce style of carpet is much tougher and more durable than some other cheerleading carpet-top mats, which may feature 10- or 14-ounce carpet styles.
Additionally, we at Greatmats use an extremely high quality of foam in these mats. Not only does this foam stand up to significant pounding from tumbling, jumping, and stunting from cheerleaders, holding its shape and resistance, but it also provides plenty of cushioning. The foam is tough too, allowing it to avoid creasing or slipping out of place while you're transporting the rolls.
Our line of mats features a flexible roll up style for easy installation, as well as easy removal and storage.
When ordering more than one 6-by-42-foot cheer mat dimensions strip, pricing includes hook and loop connector strips. You'll use connector strips on top of the mats to fasten one mat to the next. Should you need a shorter mat, you can cut the mats with a sharp utility knife.
These cheer mat rolls consist of multiple sections of polyethylene foam that are bound together, rather than appearing as a 42-foot long piece of foam. The carpet top holds these cheer floor sections together. When the cheer mat dimensions are laid out flat, the foam sections are tight to each other with no gaps, meaning there's no risk of tripping over an edge. In fact, when viewing the mats from above, all you'll see is a 42-foot segment of unbroken carpet; you won't even notice the foam is segmented. However, by segmenting the foam, it's far easier to roll up the mats into a tight roll, meaning they'll occupy far less storage space.
The foam sections within each mat are cut with water jet precision for a perfect cut and size each time. This is very important to the manufacturing process, because if the cut is too deep, the carpet can become damaged or compromised. If cut is too shallow, the foam will rip when rolled up. The precise cutting of each foam section ensures that the carpet top on the cheer mat will lie flat with no gaps because each foam section will fit together tightly.
Moving the Mats
With cheer mat dimensions of 42 feet long and 6 feet wide, they provide an excellent cheer mats tumbling strip area. That's equal to 252 square feet of coverage. Each 1-3/8-inch thickness mat does weigh 115 pounds, so installation and moving of the mats will require multiple people. (Beyond the 1-3/8 inches of thickness in these particular cheer mat options, Greatmats also offers a 2-inch thickness style that weighs 135 pounds.)
The easiest way for one person to move the rolled up cheer floor mats is to use a two-wheeled hand truck. Or you also can place one person on each end of the roll to carry a roll together. Once the roll is positioned properly and ready to be rolled out, one person can roll out the mat.
If our 1-3/8-inch thick roll-up pads are just too heavy for your needs, Greatmats does offer a smaller cheer mat dimensions with 1-3/8-inch thickness that measures 5 feet wide by 10 feet long. Such mats are not suitable for long tumbling passes, but these smaller mats are great for practicing jumps, providing a cushioned landing spot. The 5-by-10-foot mats offer the same type of segmented foam and carpet top construction as the larger cheer and tumbling mats, meaning they roll up tightly in the same manner. Each individual 5-by-10-foot mat weighs 30 pounds.
Installing the Mats
When installing multiple mats side by side, we recommend you unroll the mats all in the same direction. By unrolling the mats this way, you'll ensure that the carpet pile on the top of the mats goes in the same direction. If the carpet pile is lying in different directions, the color shading of the side by side mats may appear different from afar.
Never kick the side of a mat to try to align it. This could cause the carpet to separate from the foam. Instead, use your hands to adjust the roll's individual foam sections. Each section is lightweight, allowing for positional adjustments by hand.
If the ends of the mat curl up immediately after installation, you can flatten them by placing a heavy object on the section that's curled. After several minutes, the curl will settle down and become flat.
Storing the Mats
When it's time to roll up the mats for storage, start at the same end for every mat. By doing this, you'll be sure the carpet pile will lay the same way when it's time to unroll them.
Roll the mats as tightly as possible to ensure they occupy the least amount of storage space. When rolled tightly, each 6-by-42-foot cheer mat dimensions roll should be about 3.5 feet in diameter.
Each rolled up mat ships inside a sturdy plastic bag. You may want to keep the bags handy, as you can use them to store the cheer floor mats when they aren't in use, protecting them from dust and other soils. Greatmats also offers replacement plastic storage bags for sale for your rolled mats, should the original bags become damaged.
Preventing injury is a significant concern of coaches and sponsors of cheerleaders. And a safe cheer floor plays a key role in the ability of cheerleaders to avoid injuries. The cushioning of the foam in our cheer gym mats will reduce the stress on joints from tumbling and jumping. These types of joint injuries - like ankle sprains, knee injuries, and wrist injuries - are some of the most common minor injuries cheerleaders will suffer during both practice and competitions.
Not only does the proper cushioning in your cheerleading flooring help to prevent such sprains, but it also puts less pressure on the joints of the participants, allowing them to practice for longer periods of time and participate more fully in practices. Sometimes a nagging injury can increase in severity quickly, leaving the cheerleader out of action for several weeks. Investing in a type of cheer floor that keeps the cheerleaders joints injury free is a smart idea over the long run.
If your cheerleaders will be doing stunting, fall height is an important consideration in the type of flooring you'll choose. Cheerleaders using multiple person stunting will run the risk of falling from a height up to 4 feet, which requires a thick padding, such as our 1-3/8-inch padded mat. Other types of stunting that involve a potential fall height of greater than 4 feet needs a thicker mat, such as our 2-inch padded carpet top mat, landing or crash pads, or spring floors.
Our carpet bonded foam cheer mat rolls are great for both practice and competitions or really any place where you need to have the ability to pick up and move the cheer floor. For example, if your cheer team practices on a hard gymnasium floor that's also used for volleyball, you may need to pick up and lay down the mats on a daily basis. These rolled mats can be moved around easier than puzzle mats, for example, although the rolls are heavy.
Ordering Cheerleading Mats
One area where cheerleading tumbling mats differ from gymnastics mats is with the top surface. Mats for cheering have a carpeted surface, while gymnastics mats offer a vinyl surface. So make sure you order the correct kind of mat for your team's needs.

Is there financing available?

What is the size of a competition cheer mats when it's rolledup. Trying to find space in the school to store them.
This is the third time I've ordered matts from Great mats. As my business has grown, my needs have as well. The product is always great, but I have to say the delivery system has changed this year, and the freight company used was aweful, uncommunicative, and delayed my order more than once. I would recommend going with another freight delivery company.

Love the mats!
Perfect for our unfinished basement
Great mats! Great prices! Great Customer service!
I'm glad Greatmats' instructions were so complete regarding checking over the condition of the mats upon their receipt from the transport company. Two of the three mats we ordered were damaged. We followed Greatmats' recommendations regarding inspection and documentation of any damage on the shipping bill and reported it to them. Greatmats customer service was excellent to deal with. My only complaint (aside from the damage to the mats, which was the carriers fault) is the length of time it took the manufacturer to send us a repair kit (about three weeks). The repair kit was complete however and even included a hot glue gun necessary for the repair. We were offered complete replacement of the damaged mats but the damage was not sufficient enough to warrant that.
We love the mats! I recommend Greatmats as a company and the quality products they market.
