Whether you’re looking to enhance your gym’s safety or find the ideal flooring for a preschool, you’re sure to find the solution within Greatmats’ school mats selection.

Preschool Flooring

Creating a safe preschool environment starts with a quality, safe floor. Interlocking foam tiles are a popular option since they create a forgiving surface that kids can sit, crawl, and even stumble onto. Options like our Foam Play Mats are waterproof and stain-resistant, and they’re free of lead and latex. These foam tiles create a soft, impact-absorbing cushion to keep kids safe and comfortable. Yoga mats and flooring offer similar shock absorbing, comfortable properties.

Carpet tiles can also create a welcoming, comfortable surface. Laying these tiles on top of a harder surface, like concrete, can make a room much warmer and friendlier for students and teachers.

Many of these school mats are available in fun, bright colors that will appeal to kids. You can even order activity mats and tiles in multiple colors so you can create patterns and designs.

Gym Mats and Flooring

Outfitting a gym with appropriate school mats and flooring products can help to keep your students and athletes safe. Greatmats offers gym mats suitable for elementary school, middle school, high school, college, and university use.

Folding gym mats are one of the most versatile investments you can make in your gym mats and equipment. These mats can serve many different purposes, so you’ll get great value out of them. When partially folded up, they can assist with skill building and athlete training. Then unfolded and attached end-to-end, they can serve as tumbling mats for gymnastics and cheer training. These mats can also be attached together to create a larger, shock absorbing floor for gym classes.

You can also choose from a wide variety of specialty gymnastics mats. Options like incline gymnastics mats can help with skill building, while crash mats are a must-have safety feature for gymnasts, sports teams, and more.

When your gym needs to serve multiple purposes, then vinyl and carpet gym floor covers can help to protect it while increasing its versatility.
