Ask a question about this product

Product Questions:

Are the mats fire proof in any way?
We do have fire test data available in the Info and Specs tab on this product page.
My mother is elderly and in bad health and very weak and falls. I want a product that will protect her hips and things in a fall. Is this a product you would recommend for that purpose? Or do you suggest a different style?
Or consider the 1 5/8 inch thick tile, also available in a 2x2 ft tile size. This one inch tile is not very soft. Review this blog for fall protection flooring and mat options and comparison.
Can you glue down the mats or use tape?
Tape down is preferable to a glue down installation, however neither are commonly done or needed in most installation. The tiles will generally stay in place depending on the size of the installation. Review our 1x1 meter puzzle mat installation page for more information.
What sort of surfaces can these mats be installed over? Laminate floors? Carpets? And will they damage the floors they are laid over?
Generally any hard flat surface is best, carpeting is not recommended. The martial arts mats will not damage any surface installed over.
I am wondering if there is any data on voc's on these? I would like to order them, but need to know this first.
We do not have any testing on VOC, normally this type of testing is for glues and paints with vapors.
Will the wooden design fade during time or heavy traffic?
The mats may wear some over time, but the wood design is not a print-on, the design is integrated into the color of the surface texture of the top layer of the mat, so this means the design will not fade or wear off more than a solid color mat.
Do you have transitions/ reducers for this product?
These foam mats do not have a ramped edge option.
Hi! we are thinking of using this product for our yoga studio. Can you tell me if your EVA Foam is Formamide free? Thank you!
The manufacturer of our EVA foam tiles has provided us a test that states that one sample of an EVA foam tile passed a test that states the sample was free of formamide. We don't then state that all of our EVA foam tiles are formamide free, and I know that other supplies will promote this. The reason is that all the EVA foam tiles on the market are pretty much the same material. Formamide free EVA tiles can not exist, however the formamide will dissipate over time and one can get a passing test result after a few months of manufacturing. We source from the largest manufacturer of EVA foam tiles in world and I personally visit the factory each year and have much knowledge about the manufacturing process. I'll not state on my site what I know is not true. EVA foam tiles do not contain PVC material and thus no phthalates. Some blogs talk about EVA replacing PVC in foam tiles. This is not true; they are totally different materials. PVC is a plastic. EVA foam comes from the flip flop industry. Thank you David Butler President
I plan on putting these over a pine floor in an older home on pier and beam. Do you suggest some type of breathable vapor barrier between the wood and the tiles?
The foam tiles will act as a vapor barrier. So, if moisture is coming up from the underside of the base flooring, the foam tiles will stop the movement of that moisture at the bottom of the foam tiles.

Customer Rating:

I don’t have to put a wood border around. This one doesn’t go anywhere. The edging holds up. I’m very impressed. They cut well around corners and around poles. We have two poles in our room.

Stockbridge, GA

Customer Rating:

They're durable and age well over time. They stay in place and don't fray. They're soft, but not too soft... soft enough that if somebody fell on them, they'd do the job. You can do rolls or throws or self defense on the mats.

Greatmats have been huge upgrade for our Karate school. Our 1,600 sq.ft. floor can be cleaned and disinfected in less than 30 minutes and the surface is fantastic to work out on. Very firm but absorbs all impact. A truly amazing product.

I bought my mats from you back around 2005/2004. I purchased the red and blue puzzle 1 inch mats.
I still have them today. I'm actually looking to get new mats for my new location. I got a lot of use out of my mats.

Wake Forest, NC

Customer Rating:

We are so happy to have a set of mats! The 1 inch mats are made of quality material, and will work well for sparring. So easy to assemble and versatile. We can set up one master ring, a couple smaller rings, or a long run way to practice jumping kicks. Fits our needs perfectly. We just got them, so don't know the status of durability, but from the quality of the product, and proper care, they should last for a long time. Storage is easy, as they stack nicely.

Des Moines, IA

Customer Rating:

We love our Great Mats flooring. We opted for the 1" karate mats because the aerobic flooring was on backorder and we needed it quickly; I was worried, but completely unnecessarily. I am so pleased with my decision. No more joint problems for me or my customers-not from our floors! Our old floors were concrete under carpet. These are NOT slippery, yet easy to pivot and dance on. They are easy to clean. We vaccuum or dust with a swiffer-type dry mop and steam mop twice a week to sanitize. They can also be mopped with soap and water-we just haven't found the need to do that with the steam mop.
Customers who left because of joint issues related to our flooring, are now coming back.

Thanks for all of your assistance. We were concerned about finding the right mat to go with our decorating scheme and be functional. The one-inch karate mats are perfect for our home dojo. Lots of cushion and a very classy appearance.

Elkton, VA

Customer Rating:

We order our dojo mats from After months of training on carpet, our students loved the new mats. It made a huge difference in our student's moral and performance. The mats were easy to install and fit wonderfully. We did have a few issues with the freight company but the customer support staff at Greatmats took care of the issue. We look forward to many years of training on our mats.
