Padded gym mats, Interlocking exercise floor mats, foam and rubber

We have a variety of padded floor mats to meet multiple planned use cases. These will fit residential, athletic, and commercial applications. Each type of padded floor mat offers different features and benefits to the user, depending on the material type. Those consisting of tires that have been recycled are heavier and more durable, while padded mats are lightweight, softer, and forgiving.

Padded Floor Mats

In short, there are potentially endless uses for the padded floor mats that we have. There are two primary types available.

  1. Rubber floor mats for trucks are highly durable and are sold in a variety of densities. They yield shock absorption and can guard against the cold feeling of a concrete subfloor. Many people prefer these because they are made of recycled tires and are eco-friendly. They’re heavier, so multiple people may be needed for installation. These typically have a longer warranty and consist of recyclables. Additionally, they can often be recycled again when they reach the end of their useful life.

  2. A foam mat, on the other hand, is a lighter weight alternative. It has excellent cushioning properties. Some have ASTM fall height ratings. It tends to be softer, making for a comfortable surface, and are also easy to clean up. It is lightweight and easy to install, but keep in mind that many products aren't made to withstand heavy weights, such as exercise equipment.


We have plenty of designs that are DIY friendly. Below are just a few of the potential applications for these.

Exercise Padded Floor Mats

We have a wide range of popular choices for martial arts floor mats and for various kinds of workouts and athletics. A padded mat can help to protect the subfloor from dropped weights, and it has the excellent strength and durability that professional gyms and facilities demand.

For a softer alternative, our karate floor mats and taekwondo floor mats create comfortable workout spaces suitable for horizontal exercises, yoga, and additional athletic endeavors. These padded flooring tiles can provide protection for high impact activities, especially for use as an MMA, wrestling, or cheer floor mat. This model of workout floor mat is a popular choice for home gyms, since it’s lightweight for quick installations.

Basement Mats

Want to convert a basement into a living space? Or is there any plan to put in a child’s playroom? We have padded floor mats that are perfect for the job. Both are suitable for basements. If moisture in the basement is an issue, we offer small sized units that are simple to pull up and remove temporarily until the area has dried.

They result in a popular selection for kids playrooms and kids rooms, as they're available in numerous brilliant colors. There’s even a no-burn tatami surface on certain ones, so rug burns are a thing of the past.

We offer lead- and latex-free models, so children can crawl around on them safely without risk of harmful chemical exposure. These make cleaning up spilled food or drinks a breeze.

Entrance Mats

Adding indoor entrance mats to an industrial or manufacturing space is ideal in the building's entryways and can make a commercial space safer and comfortable for all employees and clients. Including those specially designed for use in wet, greasy kitchens or entryways, we have a variety of products suitable for any pro level application.

FAQ Floor Mats Q&A

What are the best interlocking tiles?
It really depends on the usages that are planned. Sturdier materials in a floor mat will protect the subfloors from damage. A carpet floor mat for home may have a bit less cushioning than foams, which is why these are far better for protecting the joints in the lower body.

How do you wash food service floor mats?
Start with warm water, a mild dish soap and a soft bristle brush or mop. This will take care of the majority of stains and grime on them. For a more thorough cleaning, take them outside and use a garden hose with a high quality pressure nozzle. If they cannot be moved because they don’t have weather protection, use a degreaser on them.

Do rubber mats damage hardwoods?
The majority of the time, there is no problem laying these out over hardwood. Occasionally, the finish on the hardwood will create some sort of reaction with the foam rubber mat, leaving black marks once it is removed. Some installers use a protective layer of paper between the hardwood subfloor and the overlay to prevent this possibility.
