Most Common Product Questions For ground protection mat at Greatmats:
can you install heavy indoor playground equipment on this foam tile
Generally the foam tiles are not rated to hold heavy equipment without indenting. One option is to install the equipment first then install the foam tiles around the equipment.
any issues with people wearing shoes on this and scuffing or causing problems for the product?
This product is a foam tile, and will last longer with soft shoes or sock use. Street shoes could scuff the foam tiles under heavy use. For a more durable option consider an all rubber playground floor tile.
Can this product be glued down if we are concerned about corners coming up over time? What glue would we use?
Yes, and we dont see this as an issue with any of our installations. The glue would be contact cement.
Can these be laid over carpet?
These can be installed over a thin carpet. They might slip a little in smaller installations, double sided carpet tape can be used to keep them in place if needed.
Have these been tested for formamide levels, or other VOCs?
All EVA foam tiles have some levels of formamides present at the time of production, these dissipate over time. Its possible to test the tile after 6 months and have a test that passes acceptable levels. This tile has not been tested for such.
How do these tiles do in extreme heat? We are in LV and it hits triple digits all summer long.
These EVA foam floor tile are designed for indoor use, for outdoor use always choose a rubber playground tile.
I want to put this is my basement, but I'm afraid my pets will go down there and use the mats as a restroom. How hard are they to clean/sanitize if they have accidents on the mats?
The mats are easily cleaned with water and household cleaners like dish soap. Liquids can seep in between the seams. You want to make sure the mats are pulled up and cleaned thoroughly.
If installing on a concrete floor in the basement, do I need to put down a vapor barrier?
If the basement is not prone to moisture, you can install the foam mats directly over the concrete.
I would need to cut the mats in curved shapes to fit into the aft quarter berth of my sailboat. Your video shows making a straight cut, by cutting halfway through and then bending the mat and cutting the rest of the way, but I was wondering about cutting the outer mats to fit a curved area, and cutting a hole in the middle of the center mat. Is it feasible to cut this product to fit my project? Thanks
The folding method yields the cleanest cut. It is feasible to cut curves and holes in this mats.
Can I double up these mats to get a greater fall height protection?
With the mats not being tested to be used that way, we cannot recommend this.
