Protective Gym Floor Covers for Schools


Placing chairs and tables on a basketball court cover can save it from scuffs and spills. These warm up the space.



These gym floor covers protect existing subfloors. The cost of repairing or resurfacing damaged floorings can be expensive. 


Basics About Gym Floor Covering and Protections


Hardwoods are expensive installations for gymnasiums. Yet where they are installed, they're among the busiest locations in schools, churches, and similar gathering places. Protect your gym floor with our products.



At most places, it is a multi purpose space and hosts all kinds of different events. Sports practices and games are only the beginning. It serves as a gathering place for pep rallies, assemblies, graduations, dances, and fundraising. It may allow the public to hold craft shows and trade shows.



Natural wood simply isn't made to handle heavy duty foot traffic. Non-athletic shoes can scuff the surface, and a spill can cause significant damage to the finish.


Greatmats has a wide range of gym floor tarps available, all of which create slip resistance. Using a gym tarp will enhance the versatility of the area. It then can host non-sporting events safely, as it will save gymnasium floors from damage.



Count on Greatmats to deliver highly competitive prices. Don't spend money regularly on gym floor cover rental. Instead, schools, universities, churches, and athletic facilities can purchase one, so it's always ready to use.



Many of our tarps will cost less than $1 per square ft of coverage. This delivers a strong value in a product that will stand up to regular use. 

In fact, the right systems can almost pay for themselves over time. Facilities can rent out the space more often when they have high quality runners on hand. Non-sports usage will not cause damage to the hardwood that requires expensive repairs.



Our materials will keep it looking new longer. This means fewer resurfacings, saving money.
