Sport Play Foam Flooring, Like Rubber Play Mats, Exercise Room Foam Flooring, Home Gym Soft Floors
Versatility is a great feature of the Greatmats Home Sport and Play Mat 20 mm product, as its bright colors look great and its high quality EVA foam material provides plenty of durability. For example, using these foam play mats for kids and home exercise, such as aerobics or taekwondo, is a common option for our customers.
These play floor tiles are offered in three double colored options. You can choose from green/brown, red/blue, or black/gray, with one color on each side of the mat. The reversible interlocking design allows for either color to be visible on top, which means you can create a checkerboard pattern or other design on your floor. Let your creativity show through with this foam play mat and make a fun pattern for your kids.
Another common use for these mats is to provide an area for marital arts practice and classes. If you have an athletic studio where you offer these classes or if you want your kids to be able to practice outside of class time, these home taekwondo mats are a perfect option, providing a soft landing space that's also very durable.
Our home karate mats are extremely popular because they're so easy to install and move around. Each mat measures 2 by 2 feet with interlocking edges. These mats are double colored and reversible to create a checkerboard design.
As each mat only weighs 2 pounds, thanks to the lightweight EVA foam design, one person will have no problem moving the mats around and positioning them for installation. Just line up the tabs on one of the play floor tiles with the slots on the adjacent play tile. Then step on the puzzle edges of the tiles to pop them into place. Or you can use your hands to press the edges together and complete the installation.
If you plan to create some sort of pattern in the flooring using the different types of colors available in the home taekwondo mats, we would suggest that you lay out the mats first, making sure you that it creates the type of look that you want. Once you have the tiles arranged properly, you then can attach the play floor tiles together.
Our home martial arts mats will work as either an island or wall-to-wall installation. Each type has some benefits.
Island: The island installation means you'll create a flooring 'island' in the middle of a room. If you have a multipurpose room where you'll be installing these play floor tiles, you can create an exercise area that will be clearly differentiated from the remainder of the room, for example. Island installations are easy with the Home Sport and Play Mat 20 mm from Greatmats, because we include border strips with this style of tile that you can attach to create a flat edge.
Wall-to-Wall: Creating a wall-to-wall installation looks great, as the tiles will stretch across the entire length and width of the room. However, to create this style, you will have to cut some of the mats to make them fit properly. Just use a utility knife or a box cutter with the play floor mats, cutting against a straight edge until you cut through the mats. Each mat measures about 0.79 inches in thickness, so you should be able to cut through the home taekwondo mats successfully with a sharp blade.
These home taekwondo mats are designed for a dry lay installation, meaning you will not use adhesive with them, either on the back of the tiles or on the puzzle style edges. By not using adhesive, you will be able to pick up and disassemble the pieces if you need to return to the original flooring. Or you can use the different color options to change up the patterns of the installed flooring from time to time, giving your martial arts studio a different look.
Use these home martial arts mats for all kinds of exercise and athletic sport flooring. Commonly mistaken for rubber floor mats, these heavy-duty EVA foam tiles are softer and safer than rubber tiles for children playing or participating in a martial arts class. And you'll love the colorful options found with these play floor tiles versus the black-only rubber floor tiles.
Easily convert any hard surface in your home, such as a basement, attic, or garage, into a comfortable and safe sports floor for kids to play and practice martial arts or other sporting activities. These home taekwondo mats are able to stand up to all kinds of play, thanks to a material density rating of Shore C 35. Each of the tiles carries a 1-year manufacturer's warranty.
We do not recommend using the play floor mats in an outdoor installation, as the EVA foam material will expand when exposed to direct sunlight and heat. These mats do not have an added UV treatment to protect them from sunlight. We do not recommend using steam cleaning with these home taekwondo mats either, as the steam may cause the tiles to expand. Instead, you can mop the tiles with a standard household cleaner, as long as the cleaner does not contain bleach.
Many of our customers love the versatility they receive with EVA foam mats. EVA, short for ethylene vinyl acetate, is a closed cell type of foam. This means these types of tiles offer a flexibility and consistency that resembles rubber. In fact, these tiles remind people so much of rubber tiles that they're often referred to as foam rubber tile, even though EVA foam tiles contain no rubber.
The EVA foam will absorb shock very well, which makes it an extremely desirable option for martial arts, where students may fall to the floor quite often. This shock absorption makes it a safer type of flooring for students than a hard floor.
Additionally, the closed cell construction of this type of foam gives it the durability that makes it so popular. The tiles have a firmness to them that gives students and athletes the sturdy footing they need to make quick and powerful movements. If the flooring in use for the martial arts students is too soft or has too much give to it, students won't be able to make quick movements and run the risk of turning an ankle because their feet would sink into the material.
As another benefit of EVA foam, it serves as an anti-fatigue material. This means it's not as hard on the student's ankle and knee joints as some other types of flooring, which allows students to avoid muscle fatigue and sore legs. By remaining healthier, they will be able to practice longer and more efficiently.
One of the reasons why these home martial arts mats work so well is that you can use wrestling shoes or bare feet on them with equal success. Tennis shoes and boxing shoes also will be safe to use on the surface of the tiles. The surface of the mats contains a thatched pattern, which provides a bit of traction for those exercising.
If you're unsure about how many tiles to order for your home martial arts mats installation, please contact our knowledgeable customer service team at Greatmats for some help with the calculations, which can be a little tricky because of the puzzle edges on these Home Sport and Play Mat 20 mm tiles, which affects coverage area. Or if you want to order multiple colors of tiles for a really complex installation pattern, we can help you figure out exactly how many play floor tiles to order.
Please understand that with these home taekwondo mats that the color and shade may vary somewhat from tile to tile within the same order. This is common occurrence with this type of EVA foam material and not a manufacturing defect.
If you're concerned that these slight color differences will be noticeable, we'd recommend that you create some sort of pattern in the flooring featuring different colors, such as a checkerboard pattern. With a multiple color pattern in the home martial arts mats, you won't have tiles of the same color next to each other, making the shading issues far less obvious.
As the Greatmats Home Sport and Play Mat 20 mm tiles each measure 0.79 inches in thickness, you may want to consider a thicker style of mat, depending on your needs. If you're interested in another thickness option, just contact the customer service team for more information. Explain how you plan to make use of these foam tiles, and our customer service team will be able to make the best recommendation for your needs.
For example, these mats work great for impact absorption when practicing jumping kicks. However, if you're looking for a type of martial arts tile that will offer a critical fall height rating, you will want a much thicker mat. Greatmats offers MMA style mats that will yield a fall height rating of up to 4 feet with a thickness measurement almost double that of the Home Sport and Play Mat 20 mm.
Product can be damp mopped with common household floor cleaners, avoid bleach. Test your vacuum before use.Shipping

Q & A⌃ Back to top
Can I put this over hardwood flooring without damaging them? Than you.
Only see the interlocking tiles. For a finished, flat edge, are special edge pieces also available?
Can I install these mats over carpeting?
Can these mats be used for boxing?
Do these tiles make a good surface for yoga workouts?
I primarily do aerobics and kettlebell workouts, and I am fairly positive the Home Sport and Play Mat is the right choice for me. However, my husband also has a bicycle trainer stand that he uses in the winter. Is this mat appropriate for the trainer stand, or is it likely it will dent? I'd like a mat that is a good answer for both of our activities. Thank you.
I want to use these on my lanai outside son my daughter can play with less risk of getting hurt. Are these suitable for outdoors
How does this product react to roo around office chairs? Also, I intend to install these mats over plywood in my hunting stands - do you think these will work well? Bill M.
Easy to install. Easy to clean. Looks great.
Bowling Green, KY
Wonderful experience from beginning to end!!! Love the product and the service!!!
Plan to add more dumbbells + rack next. You don't need a bunch of equipment collecting dust to get the job done.
Great for working out and for martial arts. Easy to clean, too.
The product is terrific! So easy to install and very durable! We will definitely be purchasing this again when we redo our other child's room.
Great quality on the mats.
Great mats for all cross training workouts.
This mat is thick, sturdy and looks great. Installation was also very easy. We chose the grey/black colors. The grey is dark so when laid with all squares grey side up, it looks like a very dark graphite/almost black. Next to the black you can see the variation in color but it is not the light grey you see from the side. So far it has held up well and cleans easily with a broom or damp cloth. We are very happy with this product.
Excellent choice for child's play area, and wife's exercise area.
Great material, delivery, conform, great everything. Thanks
Very well constructed, easy to assemble.
5 star rating. The floor mats were easily put together and everyone is happy now.
I recommended your flooring product to one of our other field divisions for use in their fitness room.
Spray and wipe clean! Easy to install. Doesn't absorb any odors.
I love my great mats!...I was looking around for some sort of mat I can do my yoga on with my wife. I needed a decent amount of space so we weren't so close while working out. I already have some Karate mats, but were not suitable for standing positions in yoga. What I like about 'Great Mats' is they offered to send me some samples of 3 different mats that I was interested in.That really helped me in making my decision for which type of mat that would work for me. So I picked out the Home Sport and play mat which is 7/8 of an inch thick. I ordered on a Tuesday and the mats arrived on Friday. Fast service!...Plus it only took me about 20 min to put together, and you can make several unique patterns, so it looks more personalized. We use them in our gym in the basement, so it insulates against the much colder floor and it looks super. They are priced pretty reasonable too. Great company to deal with also, because they keep you updated all the way.
Thank You, Rodney
The experience with Greatmats was easy and painless. The prices are reasonable, there is an online chat feature for questions and the shipping was fast. I ordered the 7/8 inch interlocking foam tiles. Each piece was in perfect condition when I got them. I laid the floor down in my basement over a vinyl floating floor covering concrete. Installing the floor was very easy, and took under an hour. I had a rubber mallet on hand to help lock the pieces together, but most of the time it was not necessary. The pieces each came with two edges to finish off the mat. On other sites I looked at, you have to buy the edge pieces separately, so this was definitely a plus. There is no odor to the tiles after installation, and I worked out the next night. I created a 10 X 16 foot workout area for two people. We do weight lifting, and many different cardio/circuit training programs such as T25, Insanity, and various Jillian Michaels workouts. These mats are sturdy, but provide support for high-impact activities, and importantly do not slide when running and jumping. These tiles are a great product, are perfect for a home gym, and I would highly recommend them!
Not only is the product excellent, but the customer service was stellar. As a senior, I had special requirements that customer service easily and pleasantly accommodated. Shipping and delivery were also excellent. Your company obviously cares about its employees, and they in turn care about their customers. I can't recall when I've ever had a more pleasant shopping experience. Great Job, GreatMats!
I am using the mats for a home gym floor. The first thing I noticed is that my feet Slip when I am stretching on the mats. I have to put a yoga mat on top of them to stretch and workout. Is there a way to reduce the slip factor?
I'm happy with these mats. They are sturdy, and they look great (I made a checkerboard pattern of black/gray).
They hold together fine, even during workouts that involve jumping and lunging. I didn't find the need to use tape or anything underneath the mats. They haven't come apart.
They aren't too mushy, which is good, but they do a great job of absorbing impact. I was getting pain in my legs before I got the mats, working out on a solid floor. That cleared up right away after I installed these mats, so they did the job perfectly.
At first my feet moved a little on the surface, but that might also have to do with the shoes I'm using. I think it's better now after some use (I think the surface gets a little less slick, although I don't see any visible wear), and I have also learned to compensate (good for the muscles!). If you really need to be perfectly still in a pose for a while, use a yoga mat on top of the mats.
They aren't quite 7/8'', but in the description it says they are 20 mm. 20 mm is not quite 7/8''. 20 mm is actually closer to 3/4''. I'd say the description ''20 mm'' is accurate. Also the thickness varies slightly from tile to tile, so you might get a very slightly uneven surface in some places. You can adjust it by putting material under the mats in some places, but eventually you just forget about it as you get more used to using the mats and don't think about the mats themselves.
I have already used them for several months now, and I have not had any problems with them. They seem like they will hold up with heavy use.
Shipping was quick, and the mats arrived in perfect condition.

Thanks for your timely delivery. Unfortunately, the materials were delivered to a wrong address and someone at that address accepted the delivery. This is no fault of Greatmats. This was Fedex, and the person that accepted the delivery. Also, the tiles I purchased were not consistent in thickness. There was a clear 1/8'' difference in tiles and it looked like patchwork. I was hoping it needed to acclimate, but they didn't change. They varied from 5/8 to 3/4 inch. Fortunately, My customer hasn't complained so far. Maybe there is a dye lot issue? I would like to know before showing this product to another customer. I will see if the homeowner has moved in and will try to get pictures if not. I don't want to open a can of worms.
Great flooring. We have it in our playroom/rock climbing room. My 1 yr has fallen on it a bunch of times but doesn't get hurt. It has a nice give to it that is comfortable to walk on. The texture is nice, grippy but not harsh on tender baby knees.
