''There’s a post right in the middle of my floor and there are 4-6 year olds taking martial arts classes. Sometimes the kids get a little out of control with what they’re doing, and we wanted to make sure they were safe - having four inch steel beams running right in the middle of the training floor. We needed something just to make sure if someone took a header into it, it wouldn’t hurt them. They’re wrapped nicely. They look nice and clean. You really don’t even notice that they’re there.''

The Holy Family School in Cincinnati, Ohio is home to a gym that is more than 135 years old, so recently needed an upgrade to its safety features. That’s when Rex Currin, physical education teacher, decided it was time to employ Greatmats’ Wall Padding.
The school has brick walls and pillars that line the gym, which kids really need protection from. Because the wall is less than a foot from the out-of-bounds line, safety had always previously been a concern for many in the school community. That is, until Rex found Greatmats.
Not only did Rex find the Greatmats’ staff to be kind, helpful, and trustworthy, but he can’t say enough about the wall padding, either. He is now comfortable allowing kids to push limits a little further. “The kids run into the walls with excitement, and they are able to burn more energy in his class - allowing them to concentrate better in the traditional classroom.”
