New Thor Movie Probably Used Jigsaw Mats

The new Thor movie which was not made by the movie producer Harry Weinstein is set to be a very popular film if you ask the right people. While Harry Weinstein will probably not be promoting it as that could be considered counter productive as it was produced by Marvel Studios, the other actors in the film probably will. The new Thor movie is actually called “Thor” Ragnarok”. Whilst the title might sound a bit silly most people who match it probably won’t care as the previous titles were not much better.

The plot of the film is not that complicated. Generally Thor and his mates fly around kicking peoples butts until the film ends in a massive climax. Maybe they should have had a subplot where all the women of Hollywood get together to kick Harry Weinstein in the nuts. I am not sure if the studio would have allowed it but I am sure it would have attracted a larger female audience then the current version. But that is just my opinion. Actually all of the above is and I am just taking creative licence to articulate what I think. Not what is actually real.

But what connection does the film have to jigsaw mats? Well actually probably none. I am pretty sure that the stunts people would have required jigsaw mats on set to be able to execute or even just practice their stunts. Jigsaw mats are a great way of lessening the impact with the ground to help minimise injury. Whilst I have never been on a set I did notice that at NIDA (National Institute of Dramatic Arts) in Kensington Sydney, That they use jigsaw mats when practicing stunts in their work shop. I am even pretty sure they purchased them from Ezymats as I distinctly remember selling mats to a Theatre group.

Now whilst people might know jigsaw mats as such they are also know as gym mats and gymnastics mats. So if you hear someone say that stunt people use gymnastics mats on this set or that then you know what they are talking about. They would probably call them gymnastics mats as they just around on them and do all sort of acrobatics.

Gym Mats

Common Gym Mat Problems and Their Solutions

We sell excellent quality gym mats here at Ezy Mats, but frequent use and regular wear can take a toll on them. Proper care and maintenance is the key to extending the lifespan of your mats and keep them in good condition. Here’s a list of common gym mat problems and how you can overcome them without needing to replace the entire floor covering:

  1. The mats are stiffer in some areas 

Mats will become stiffer if they’re saturated with dirt, debris, and stains. If you spill something on the mats and don’t clean them up immediately, the spilled drink will eventually dry up and damage the mat completely. The best way to deal with this problem is to clean the mat regularly and ensure there are no lingering traces of stains, dust, and debris. However, if the mats are too damaged, you can replace individual pieces to get the best results.

  1. Mats are crumbling 

If the mats don’t bounce back into their original form and start to crumble under pressure, it’s time to replace them. These mats are too old and have started to lose their structural integrity. The more you use them, the more they will crumble now.

  1. The mats have a bad odour 

When you exercise in your gym, some of your sweat will transfer the mats, especially when you lay down on it to perform crunches or yoga. If you don’t clean the gym mats regularly, they’ll eventually develop a bad odour because of all the bacteria and germ accumulated in them. Use a gentle anti-bacterial cleaner to remove the odour and germs.

You don’t need to look elsewhere for excellent quality gym mats. We at Ezy Mats have a large collection of them and you can get in touch with us at (02) 97187424 or contact us through this form if you want to know more.

 

 

GYM Mats

Mistakes You Shouldn’t Make During Gym Mat Installation

Gym mats are relatively easy to install and most manufacturers will provide a set of instructions for you to follow. However, at Ezy Mats we’ve noticed some common mistakes made during the installation process and these mistakes can damage the mats and increase your installation expense. Here are some of the mistakes you need to avoid in order to ensure your installation is secure and the mat doesn’t budge from its place.

  1. Not letting the mats expand fully 

The mats are compressed due to weight and pressure during the packing and shipping process. If you don’t allow the mat to rest in the room and expand fully, your installation won’t be secure and the mats will become uneven. After the gym mats are delivered to your location, remove them from the packing and let them sit in the room they’re supposed to be installed in for at least 24 hours. This will allow the mats to adjust to the humidity and temperature of the room and expand as much as they need to. You can then install the pieces on your floor without any problems. 

  1. Not measuring the floor space correctly 

Jigsaw mats are held in place because of the interlocking design and the pressure every piece places on the other. If you don’t and ensure the interlocking mechanism works and measure the floor space correctly, you won’t purchase enough mats to cover the entire floor space. It’s always a good idea to purchase a few extra mats to make sure you have enough to cover the entire floor. You can always call a professional to install the mats if you’re uncertain about the process or the purchase. 

  1. Using glue to secure the mats 

These mats are designed to be installed on the bare floor surface and will stay in place because of the interlocking mechanism. If you apply glue to the base of the mats, you’ll shrink them and make them stiff, which isn’t an ideal surface for the gym. The glue will permanently damage the mats and render it unusable so you’ll have to purchase new mats for your gym. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions carefully during the installation process in order to avoid these problems. 

  1. Not preparing the surface 

Your floor surface should be clean and even before you install your mats. Dust, debris, and moisture can damage the mats quickly and force you to replace them earlier. That’s an added expense you don’t need. Before you install the mat, clean the floor and make sure it’s even. If the floor has some water damage problem or large cracks, get it repaired from a professional before you install gym mats on the surface That will help you avoid unnecessary expenses down the line.

Jigsaw Mats

Why are Jigsaw Mats Better Than Regular Mats for your Home Gym?

A home gym is a great way to get back on track with your health and fitness. You don’t have to spend time commuting to your local gym and can exercise in the comfort and privacy of your home. Such gyms are particularly beneficial to people who’re self-conscious about exercising in public. However, it’s important to create a safe gym space before you start exercising. At Ezy Mats, we encourage customers to pay attention to the floor and use good quality gym equipment for their exercise. Jigsaw mats are a great way to make your gym floor safer.

Why are jigsaw mats better than regular mats? 

There are different kinds of mats available in the market so it’s not easy to make a choice for your home gym. Here are some reasons why you should choose jigsaw mats instead of regular mats:

  • Design – Jigsaw mats have a very attractive design, which makes them a good choice for home gyms. They have different colours on different sides in most cases, so you can install alternating colours for a different effect.
  • Easy installation – Jigsaw mats are very easy to install because you don’t need to use glue or follow any specific instructions. These mats are like puzzle pieces and lock into place once all the pieces are installed. You don’t need to apply glue to the floor and stick the mat in order to keep it in place because the interlocking design will do it for you.
  • Easy removal – It’s easy to remove the mat because it’s not adhered to the floor surface. So if you decide to move to a different location or stop using the home gym, you don’t need to refinish your original floors because there will be no glue stains or other such problems. You can just lift the puzzle pieces up without causing any damage to the pieces or the floor. They’re reusable so you can install them in a different location as well.
  • Comfort – These jigsaw mats provide ample support and comfort to you while you exercise. They absorb impact and offer a soft surface that doesn’t cause excessive strain to your muscles and bones. Exercising on a hard floor surface can be very difficult challenging and cause excessive injuries as well. Jigsaw mats will act as a barrier between your body and the hard floor.
  • Easy maintenance – It’s not difficult to maintain the mats. You just need mild soap water and clean the surface once in a while. Regular cleaning will improve the lifespan of the mat and ensure it doesn’t look bad. Regular cleaning will also ensure the floor is hygienic and doesn’t smell of sweat and dirt.

With a lot of these activities there is a great likelihood of being thrown to the ground. Whats more there are drills which occur on the ground which require protection to lessen the impact.

If you look at Krava Maga, which is an Israeli self-defence system, there are lots of moves which see your partner thrown to the ground, sometimes even violently. The danger of sustaining injury through these encounters requires some kind of safety mat to mitigate the force of the through. This is where martial arts mats come in and are effective in reducing the risk of getting hurt.

With martial arts like BJJ and grappling there is a definite need for martial arts mats. You will not see a school or training area for these systems that is not fitted out with gym mats of some kind. Sometimes they are roll out mats at other times they will use foam mats or jigsaw mats. Generally they will be an interlocking mat however for a more durable mat they will often took at using tatami mats or MMA mats. One thing is for sure. They will have a martial arts mat of one kind or the other.

Puzzle Mats for Kids Play Areas

It is natural instinct to want what is best for your kids. Parents (particularly new parents) can’t help but run around chasing their kids trying to make sure they are looked after and won’t get hurt. Some people refer to such parents as helicopter parents as they hover over their kids watching there ever more. And it is understandable that parents would want what is best for their children.

One way in which parent can ensure that the children minimise the risk of getting hurt when playing is by installing puzzle mats in their play rooms. Puzzle mats are available in different colours which means they can add a playfulness to any kids room. They also have a variety of thicknesses which make the choice of the level of protection you want to provide your children even more flexible. Puzzle mats are a tried and tested product which have been in use for a number of years now.

Puzzle mats are also commonly know as foam mats. As the name would imply foam mats are made from compressed foam. Like other foam products foam mats can absorb impact such as falls. This is an important quality to have when you are looking at protecting young toddlers especially when they are just starting to learn how to walk. Foam mats can be easily cut to shape therefore making it easy to fill all the gaps between walls and furniture etc.

Best Mats for Gymnastics Mats

We often get asked what kind of mats are the best mats for gymnastics. As gymnastics is a very popular sporting activity there is always a need for gymnastics mats in the general population. Gymnastics mats are important as they help minimise the impact of training. With gymnastics there is a lot of tumbling, jumping, somersaults etc which can resulting in the practitioner falling and impacting with the floor. Using anti-fatigue mats therefore is necessary for any training area.

There are a number of mats which can be helpful in such a situation. A great kind of mat for this kind of training is foam mats. Foam mats are made from compress expandable foam which has a stated hardness and density which gives it the ability to absorb impact. Usually the thicker the foam mats the better the absorptive qualities. For an activity like gymnastics it would probably be recommended to go with something thinker thick a 40mm foam mat. None the less any thickness for the foam mats would be better then no mats at all.

Puzzle mats are another name for these mats and seem to be what a lot of people know that as. Puzzle mats are also made from foam but they connect together in a puzzle formation which is where they get their recognition from. The puzzle format allows them to be connected together in a stable manner therefore forming a continuous mat. This added strength offer stability for the practitioner with the knowledge that they will not come apart during training. Puzzle mats are a great option for training gymnastics and should always be considered when choosing a mat.

 

Exchange rate vs USD

AUD Falls on Week Inflation Data

The Australian dollar fell today on week inflation data from the Bureau of Statistics. The rate of inflation was 0.2% instead of the 0.4% which was expected. The underlying rate was 0.5% which was in line with expectations. The announcement had an immediate effect which saw the dollar fall by 0.25%. It is currently hovering just above $0.79.

What does this all mean for the price of goods and jigsaw mats in particular. Firstly jigsaw mats are sourced in USD so any dramatic drop in the AUD will have an impact on their pricing. The dollar has risen dramatically in the recent past so it should not have an effect. We would only see and effect on jigsaw mats if the AUD fell below $0.74. Although anything is possible it is unlikely to drop so much in a short period of time. Only a huge economic shock would have an effect on the AUD like rising unemployment or some other such event.

The Australian economy has been performing great lately which is why the AUD has risen so much and the price of gym mats is so low. Whilst there is a feel good sentiment in the economy people are more likely to purchase discretionary items such as gym mats and other training equipment. This is usually the case in good economic times. As someone who is current involved in a few businesses I have had the feeling that the economy has improved markedly in the last few months. So much so that it has lead to increased hired in the organisations that I run. Including at Ezymats.

It is always a good idea to order your foam mats whilst the dollar is good. It ensures that you will be able to buy your foam mats at a good price therefore grabbing yourself a bargain. The price of foam mats was much higher when the dollar was pushing below $0.72. We have heaps of stock of foam mats at the time so it is a great time to order them. We also have shipment coming in all the time.
