- Excellent shock absorption makes for a safer training environment, helping to prevent serious injuries
- Highly durable mats will withstand rigorous use, so your investment is designed to last
- Versatile mats can be used in many ways, from creating a safe floor surface to being attached to walls, poles, and other items which could prove dangerous in a collision
- Low-maintenance mats clean up in just seconds, so your training space looks professional and clean and you save time and money on maintenance
- Portable mats can be installed when and where you need them; there's no need to have a permanent facility, thanks to our variety of fold-up, roll-up, and lightweight mats that can go with you as you travel and train
Our mats have been used for tactical, and combative training by city, county, state and federal law enforcement agencies as well as county, state and federal corrections facilities for more than a decade. You can confidently buy law enforcement mats from Greatmats, knowing you're getting the best quality available.
We've outlined some of our most popular military training mats below to help you get started.
Folding Training Mats
Our panel style folding gym mats are the most popular form of tactical training mats. These mats are two inches thick, which provides plenty of cushion and shock absorption against falls and throws. The mats themselves are easy to lay out and connect together for larger surfaces. When you're done training, you can separate the mats, fold them up, and easily store them away. It's an ideal solution for spaces that serve multiple purposes, and allows you to take your training just about anywhere.
Because these folding training mats are equipped with hook and loop connectors, you can quickly and easily attach multiple mats together to create larger training areas. This innovative design keeps the mats easily portable and manageable in size, yet allows you to customize the training area to your needs depending on the day and the size of the class that you're teaching. With an 18 oz. vinyl cover, these mats are designed to withstand intense and abusive workout environments.
For installation over carpeting, folding mats are the most secure option, as the hook and loop connectors can be attached directly to the floor to combat shifting. Folding mats are also the most durable option if you will be working outside, since the foam core is protected by the durable vinyl cover.
Interlocking Tactical Self Defense Training Mats
Law enforcement and corrections officers versed in martial arts have found our interlocking puzzle mats to helpful in their tactical and self defense training regimen. These mats connect together much like puzzle pieces, so you can create nearly any sized or shaped training space. Connecting the mats takes just seconds, and the mats stay connected securely until you decide to separate them.
Puzzle training mats offer the greatest variety of surfaces, ranging from a tatami surface that will not leave skin or floor burns, to a scuff resistant thatch textured surface, and everything in between. The tiles are lightweight and can be installed over any hard, flat surface. You can remove the tiles and take them with you, if needed, or leave them in a permanent installation when working with a designated training space. The tiles can be cut with a sharp utility knife for wall-to-wall installations.
Roll Out Tactical Self Defense Training Mats
Our roll out tactical and self defense training mats offer solutions for both portable training areas while providing virtually seamless coverage for large training facilities. These mats feature a rugged vinyl surface designed to withstand the wear and tear of boots and shoes. We offer roll out training mats with both smooth and tatami textured surfaces, so you can get the exact surface texture that you're looking for.
Roll out mats work very well to soften large finished floors, such as school gymnasiums. They offer excellent coverage, and you can quickly cover a significant area. If you're looking for a more permanent installation in a larger space, roll out mats may be your best bet, since they have fewer seams than interlocking mats create. You can tape the mats together to create a single surface. Keep in mind that roll out mats are not protected on the underside, so they do need to be installed on top of a flat surface.
Foam Underlayment Rolls
If you'd like to truly maximize cushion and protect trainees against hard falls, then it's wise to invest in a foam underlayment roll. Our foam underlayment rolls range from 5/8 to a full 2 inches thick, and are an excellent way to make any flooring surface more forgiving.
Foam underlayment can be installed beneath a finished flooring surface. Place these rolls beneath your self defense training mats when you know that you'll be practicing takedowns or falls. These rolls offer superior shock absorption and are a cost-effective way to increase the versatility and performance of your flooring without having to invest in all-new combative training mats.
Keep in mind that the foam is an underlayment, and must be covered by a flooring product in order to keep it protected. These foam rolls are backed by a 1-year limited manufacturer warranty, so you can buy with confidence.
Pole, Post, and Wall Padding
In order to maximize the safety of your training facility, be sure to invest in pole, post, and wall padding, too. A collision with a wall or other structure can result in serious injury, so Greatmats offers a variety of padding options designed to minimize that risk.
Our Gym Wall Pads are available in a wide variety of sizes and colors. They meet the Class A fire rating requirements, and are available with ASTM impact-rated foam padding. The 16-ounce vinyl covers are highly durable, and are both puncture and tear-resistant. Additionally, the vinyl covers are both anti-fungal and anti-bacterial, contributing to a healthier training environment.
In order to make installing these pads as easy as possible, we offer both direct screw-on and Z-clip installation methods. Both installation methods are simple, and whether you're working with concrete walls or chain link fences, we're sure to have an installation method that will work for your facility.
Since no two training areas are alike, Greatmats offers plenty of customization options to choose from. You can choose from custom sizes, 14 different colors, and different installation methods. If your padding will be installed over areas that include door handles, electrical outlets, or other features that need to be accessible, we can design wall padding with custom cutouts to suit your specific needs. Thanks to our digital printing, you can even customize your padding with your business logo for a truly unique look.
