Most Common Product Questions For ground protection mat at Greatmats:
Can I put this over hardwood flooring without damaging them? Than you.
Hardwood or any other hard flat surface is suitable. Greatmats does not guarantee our product against what it may do to surfaces that the tiles are installed over. I've seen in the past that when installing foam tiles over hardwood, the polyurethane finish did yellow a bit over time, which was noticed after the tiles were removed. This ambering or yellowing did go away in a few days in the case that I witnessed. It may have been some sort of oxygen variation, not sure. The foam tiles will act as a vapor barrier so if moisture is coming up from the underside of the base flooring, the foam tiles will stop the movement of that moisture at the bottom of the foam tiles. Hardwood may be a bit slipper for sporting activities, meaning the tiles may slip around when installed over hardwood.
Only see the interlocking tiles. For a finished, flat edge, are special edge pieces also available?
Yes this product does come with two border strips per tile.
Can I install these mats over carpeting?
For best results this foam tiles needs to be installed over a hard flat surface. If you are looking for home gym or exercise mats over carpeting, read this <a href='/home-gym-flooring/carpet-safe-home-gym-flooring-options.php'>blog</a>.
Can these mats be used for boxing?
Yes this foam mat can be used with boxing shoes and tennis shoes. This is a good option for boxing.
Do these tiles make a good surface for yoga workouts?
They might be a little soft for yoga, depending on the firmness that is desired.
I primarily do aerobics and kettlebell workouts, and I am fairly positive the Home Sport and Play Mat is the right choice for me. However, my husband also has a bicycle trainer stand that he uses in the winter. Is this mat appropriate for the trainer stand, or is it likely it will dent? I'd like a mat that is a good answer for both of our activities. Thank you.
The bike trainer will most likely indent the foam tile, but will not really hurt the mats, the more area the weight of the exercise equipment the better. The tiles are great for aerobic and kettlebells.
I want to use these on my lanai outside son my daughter can play with less risk of getting hurt. Are these suitable for outdoors
These are indoor foam tiles and will expand in the sun and heat. We have a couple of <a href='/playground-flooring/save-kids-money-back-safe-pvc-playground-flooring.php'>PVC tiles for outdoor play areas</a> with fall height ratings.
How does this product react to roo around office chairs? Also, I intend to install these mats over plywood in my hunting stands - do you think these will work well? Bill M.
This foam tile is not designed for office chairs, its too soft. In the cabin its ok.
I plan to use this in high traffic area with lots of foot movements. I’m concerned about the tiles moving or coming apart is that likely to happen or are they pretty secure when locked in place?
These tiles interlock tightly. Once installed, you will not experience them coming apart with movement over the top.
Are these suitable for HIIT, Plyometrics, Insanity, etc. when placed on top of concrete or tiles?
Yes.Use these play gym mats for all kinds of exercise and athletic sport flooring. The tiles have a firmness to them that gives students and athletes the sturdy footing they need to make quick and powerful movements. As another benefit of EVA foam, it serves as an anti-fatigue material. It's more forgiving on the ankles and knee joints versus some other types of flooring. This allows avoiding muscle fatigue and sore legs.
Is it possible to get these in 4 ft x 4 ft instead of 2 x 2?
We do not have this mat in a 4 ft x 4 ft option. We do have it as a 3.28 ft x 3x28 ft option here: https://www.greatmats.com/products/taekwondo-mats.php.
We're getting a water/sand base kickboxing bag. Will this mat suffice for the bag, doing roundhouse kicks and moving to pushups/situps? We're conscientious about not twisting knees!
Yes. This mat is designed to support these activities.
Could these be used for wall padding on drywall?
That really depends on the purpose of the wall padding. It can be attached to drywall for light protection. Keep in mind that traditional wall pads have a plywood backing that helps distribute the force of impact over a larger area and will protect your wall better. Traditional pads are also about 3 times thicker providing better protection for the body.
Does it absorb noise from jumping in an aerobic workout on a second floor?
This will absorb some noise, but it is not designed specifically for soundproofing.
