What you may not know is that these gym wall mats also have some uses in a home setting or in certain types of athletic studios. Setting up wall mats for home uses can be a great means of providing safety for children and students in certain rooms of the home or at an athletic studio.
Our Greatmats padding for walls are wood backed with high density foam wrapped in a rugged shell of 14 ounce vinyl. The wall padding comes in two installation types: Direct wall attachment or Z-clip installations.
To make the gym wall pads more fun, keep in mind that they are available in many different colors. You can order them in your school colors, and we also have options for adding your logo to the gymnasium wall padding.
We've broken down the best reasons to order our Greatmats Gym Wall Padding of all sizes.
Promote School Spirit with Wall Pads
More than a dozen different colors of gym wall mats are available to order. This allows you to bring your gym walls to life, all in colors that match your school's team colors.
Additionally, you can add your team logo, team nickname, mascot image, school name, or any other image to these gym padding sections. Digital printing ensures that you can have the highest quality graphics displayed on your gym wall mats.
Safe Padding for Walls
These gymnasium wall padding options provide an extra layer of safety and protection for students participating in activities in gymnasiums in schools and at universities. They feature a solid construction quality, with a wood backing that ensures they'll last.
The foam in the gym wall mats is covered in vinyl with a thickness measurement of 14 ounces, which is enough to protect against tears and punctures. The standard measurement of each padded section is 2 feet by 6 feet, resulting in 12 square feet of coverage. All four edges on the rectangular shaped pads are straight.
A standard gym wall section of padding consists of 2 inches in thickness of cross-linked polyethylene foam, which is then wrapped in the durable 14 ounce vinyl cover. These are the same wall mats you will find in major universities across the country and around the world.
Customization of Wall Pads
In addition to providing printed logos and school names on the gym wall mats, Greatmats also offers these products in a number of custom sizes and thicknesses. By offering our padding in different thicknesses and sizes, we ensure you'll be able to find exactly the type of padding that you need for your space.

Gymnasium Use Cases
Whether you're using these gymnasium wall padding sections in a school or at an athletic studio, you have quite a few different options for applying them, such as the following.
Basketball Pads: These pads are perfect for the walls behind basketball hoops. Many gyms have a brick wall a few feet beyond the end line of the basketball court, so having gym wall mats available can prevent athletes crashing into a hard wall from suffering a serious injury.
Indoor Track: If your school or university has an indoor track used for sprint workouts, placing wall pads at the end of the sprint area can help to prevent injuries in case runners cannot slow down before reaching the wall.
Martial Arts and Combat Studios: As martial arts can involve some throws or some fast movements, placing sections of padding against the walls in the studio will provide protection in case a couple of students make an out of control move while sparring and end up falling toward the wall. In the case of MMA where fighters are often cornered, or striking arts where board breaking may result in flying pieces of wood, it can also prevent damage to the wall.
Tumbling Area: If cheerleaders at the school will be practicing in a small dance room, working on tumbling moves can be challenging. Should one of the cheerleaders lose control while making a tumbling pass, or misjudge the distance of their stunts, having padding on the wall of the room is a smart option to provide some protection versus the hard wall. You also could use the wall pads in a gymnastics studio for the same type of protection during tumbling runs.
Wrestling Rooms: At many schools, the wrestling team practices in a small, enclosed room. Although this can be helpful for creating high temperatures in which to provide high-level conditioning, the closeness of the walls can also be dangerous when wrestlers are flying around the room during practice and workouts. Hanging the gymnasium wall padding on the walls inside the wrestling room is a smart option to keep the wrestlers protected.
Other Use Cases for Upright Gym Padding
Some athletic rooms will have I-beams or other square, rectangular, or oddly shaped objects running along the walls. Some of these support structures are even placed a few feet from the walls as a column. Obviously, these structures need to be wrapped in padding for the safety of your athletes.
Wood-backed and built of a high quality foam and a thick vinyl, our custom pads for columns and other non-standard obstacles are sure to last for years even in the most challenging environments. They are bright and colorful and look great in athletic facilities of all types. We have all kinds of wall padding options to take care of any kinds of non-standard use cases.
Column Pads: Column wall pads are available in many of the same colors and vinyl thicknesses as our standard wall pads. We can have the perfect sizes and shapes cut to fit to your specs for any random obstacle. Some schools or universities may use our column pads for placing around football goalposts, flag poles or baseball foul poles.
Safe Room: If your home has a safe room designed for protection during severe weather or other catastrophes, having padding on the walls can ensure a greater level of safety for your family.
Square Pads: For square- and rectangular-shaped columns jutting out from walls, we can create mats that will wrap around these columns. Or if the wall where you want to mount the gym wall mats has an indentation, we can protect athletes from the corners of the indentations with our pads.
Workout Room: If you've created a workout room in a basement or garage at your home, you may have to deal with support columns in the middle of the room. Placing pads around these support columns is a smart way to remain safe during high intensity workouts when you don't want to worry about injury. You also may want to place padding on walls in the workout room for safety.
Fitting Around Obstacles
If your gym is like countless others, you probably have unique challenges to work around with your wall padding. Wall outlets, light switches and other areas need to be accessible after the wall pads are mounted.
When you order from Greatmats, we will help you with these needs, ensuring that the gymnasium wall padding you order has cutouts and specially-sized pads that will leave exposed the things you need to be able to access. We will even create custom pads for your gym that will fit around the handles and windows of the exit doors for the gymnasium.
Installation Methods for Gym Wall Pads
Installing your wall pads is made easier with z-clips. Simply attach the clips to the back of the pads by screwing them into the plywood backing of the panels. Attach the other clips to the wall, and then hang the clips on the pad onto the clips on the wall. Unsightly mounting hardware is concealed behind the wall pads. This also eliminates any risk of the hardware causing a safety hazard for athletes crashing into the gym wall mats.
Another installation option is the use of hook and loop fasteners to attach pads to the wall. The padding then can also function similarly to gym folding mats on the floor with this installation method.
Our gymnasium wall padding will arrive with all necessary hardware included to install the pads. Our padding for gymnasiums can be directly attached to concrete block walls or wooden studs.
Although the standard mat uses strong 14 ounce vinyl, we also offer a heavy duty vinyl upgrade to 19 ounces where stronger vinyl to resist punctures is required. An outdoor mat is available with UV protection against the sun and an 18 ounce vinyl cover. Upper and lower lip options are available so that you can easily replace and repair vinyl as needed.
