Benefits of Gym Wall Padding

  1. Maximize safety, whether you're working with young children or sports teams in fast-paced games
  2. Potentially prevent devastating injuries that can occur in just seconds by providing important shock absorption and cushion
  3. Create a cohesive, professional appearance for any facility
  4. Incorporate your school's, team's, or facility's branding on the wall pads
  5. Outfit both indoor and outdoor sports areas with our versatile wall pads
  6. Custom design wall pads to fit perfectly around light switches, wall outlets, and other features

Choosing The Right Wall Mat for Your Facility

  1. Will the padding be used indoors or outdoors?
  2. What types of activities will be performed in the facility, and what types of impacts are possible? (Thicker mats offer more shock absorption, and therefore more protection.)
  3. What type of a surface will you be mounting the mats to?
  4. Are there electrical outlets or door handles that you need to work around? (Our custom mats can be custom-made to your specifications for a perfect fit around these features.)
  5. Will mats be permanently mounted, or are you looking for a temporary option that can be removed?
  6. Do you want to customize mats with your school's logo, team's mascot, or other branding?
  7. Do you have poles, beams, or other obstacles that need to be padded?

Gym Wall Padding Options

Greatmats offers a variety of wall mats and padding suitable for schools, universities, and commercial gyms. We are proud to offer pads with various installation styles and design options, and many pads can even be customized.

Gym Mats 4x8 Foot x 1.5 Inch are one of our more basic wall pad options. These mats feature a durable inner PE foam core which provides great impact absorption. The mats have durable 18-ounce vinyl covers, and are available in a variety of brilliant colors. While these folding mats are suitable for floor use, they can also be attached to the wall to serve as wall pads.

If you're looking for a more professional, customizable option, our colorful, panelized gym wall mats will add a splash of brilliant color to any gym. We can even emblazon your logo, team name, mascot, or any other image on your mats. These mats are available in custom sizes and cutouts, and are equipped with a wood backing to allow for direct wall attachment. These mats are available with Z-Clip installation options, and have durable 14-ounce vinyl covers for excellent durability.

If you're working with an outdoor space, then our Outdoor Field Wall Padding with Grommets is up to the task. Available in a variety of sizes, this padding is created with 3-inch thick high impact polyurethane foam. The 18-ounce vinyl cover is UV resistant, and even comes with a 5-year limited no fade warranty. Moisture resistant, this padding is available in a variety of color choices. Digital lettering and graphics are also available.

Our Outdoor Field Wall Padding for Chain Link Fences is a great choice for use on fences and gates, in baseball fields, and around track arenas. This padding is moisture resistant and has a durable 18-ounce vinyl cover. The matching backer board has a bolt and plate attachment method, and the 3-inch thick high impact polyurethane foam provides plenty of shock absorption. You can even add on digital graphics or lettering for a customized, one-of-a-kind appearance.

Column and Pole Padding Options

Some gyms, wrestling facilities, and other athletic rooms have I-beams and 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. Obviously, these structures need to be wrapped in padding for the safety of your athletes. Customized column pads are a great solution to this problem.

Column wall pads are available in 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 that your gym may present. Wood-backed and built of high quality foam and a thick vinyl, our custom column pads are sure to last for years to come, even under the challenging environments of gymnasiums. They are bright and colorful and look great in athletic facilities of all types.

Channel-Style I-Beam Pads use a channel design to wrap around the face and the edges of the I-beam. They are made with 3 inch thick polyurethane foam and covered with 18 oz vinyl coated polyester fabric. These pads are available in bright colors and can have custom graphics.

Our pole pads and post padding is a common solution for covering steel support poles in basements and goal post bases on football fields. These pads simply wrap around the pole and connect back to themselves using a 2-inch hook and loop fastening flap. Keep in mind that pole pads are not UV treated and should not be left outdoors when not in use.


When you install wall pads in gyms, you'll likely face some unique challenges. Wall outlets, light switches, and other areas need to be accessible even after the wall pads are mounted. At Greatmats, we can help accommodate these unique needs. Our wall pads can be custom designed around your obstacles so that they attach perfectly while still leaving exposed the areas you need accessible. We can even custom pad your gym doors around the handles and windows for a non-invasive, clean installation.

Z-clips make installing pads easier. These innovative clips can be attached to the back of the pads by screwing them into the plywood panel backing. The other side of the clip is then screwed into the wall, making for a simple, clean installation. The mounting hardware is concealed behind the wall pads.

Thanks to the way that our wall pads are designed, the pads can be directly attached to concrete block walls or wooden studs. You'll have plenty of ways that you can install the pads, even when you're working with a concrete wall. Upper and lower lip options are also available so that you can easily replace and repair vinyl as needed, keeping your gym looking great and saving you from having to invest in an entirely new pad.

Many of the wall padding options available through Greatmats are anti-fungal and anti-bacterial. Wall padding rarely requires special adhesives.
