Interlocking Gymnastics Mats

 

In addition to the mats above we have a large range of interlocking mats which are suitable for gymnastics training. Our mats come in a number of different thicknesses. The thickness of the gymnastics jigsaw mat is determines by the user and it is important to understand your needs before purchasing your gymnastics mats. They also come in a number of colour options. As the  mats are double sided and have an alternate colour which is great for setting boarders in your training area.

What is a Gymnastics Mat

A gymnastics mat is a mat or mats used in gymnastics training. A gymnastics mat is made of EVA foam.  EVA is an expanded foam which absorbs impact like jumping or falling. A gymnastics mat employs a jigsaw system which allow the gymnastics mat to interlock with other mats.

Interlocking Gymnastics Mats

Our gymnastics jigsaw mats have the added benefit of being interlocking mats. This is the reason they are referred to as jigsaw mats as they lock into to each other for stability. Our gymnastics jigsaw mats are easy to assemble for both short-term and long term gymnastics training areas.

Gymnastics Mats Thicknesses / Sizes

Our interlocking gymnastics mats are available in three different sizes: 20mm, 30mm, 40mm and are 1m x 1m. Generally speaking (but not exclusively) the 20mm mats are used in activities where the is less fatigue and minimal falling and jumping. The user then may move to 30mm is the is more jumping and some potential for light fall. The 40mm mats are general requires where there is falling and rolling around on the mats. As the intensity of the increase so too does the thickness.

Others Mats

Mats are also bought to be used for safety in gymnastics, and therefore in obtaining new training skills. They are also usually a piece of foam ranging from 1.5-28 inches thick, covered in a vinyl or plastic lining. The foam ranges in density from relatively firm to very soft.

Landing mats are usually blue, but can also be almost any other color. Mats also come in a range of sizes, from very small mats used on the beam, to very large mats, used in the foam pits.

Typically, in both competition and practice, the use of mats is mandatory. On every event except floor exercise, pommel horse and vault, gymnasts may use an additional landing mat, without deduction, which may be adjusted for distance.

 

Beam pads

This gymnastics coach is fastening a foam beam wrap to the balance beam.
These are thin mats that fasten around the balance beam. They are used only in training to give gymnasts training high-level skills additional protection and a wider landing space while working on the apparatus. Makeshift beam pads can also be constructed from soft mats placed over the beam surface, if necessary.

 

Blocks

Blocks are firm, trapezoid or rectangular shaped mats. They can be attached to other blocks via velcro and straps. Blocks are routinely used as step-stools for gymnasts working on the bars or beam and as practice vaulting surfaces. You will find them in most gymnastics gyms so why not give them a go. Naturally only if being supervised by a training coach.

 

Crash mats

Typically, these mats are extremely thick and soft, and are used when an athlete is learning a new, high-impact skill. As well as being used in gymnastics they are also used in activities such as judo. We have a range of crash mats available. Click here to find out more.

 

Folding panel mats

Folding mats are thin, firm mats about twelve feet in length. They usually have alternating color panels and can be folded, stacked and attached to other mats via velcro strips at the ends. Normally used for practicing tumbling moves, these mats may be stacked to provide a protective surface for gymnasts working on the low balance beam, or provide a means for a gymnast to reach the bars or rings. They have a history of usage in gymnastics, martial arts and physical education classes. Schools generally purchase new folding mats once every 7 years. These mats are perfect for providing a level of protection for the body from high impact collisions with hard solid surfaces such as hardwood or concrete flooring. There are two main categories of foam used in these types of mats, cross-linked polyethylene foam and polyurethane foam.

 

Foam core

Polyethylene foam

Cross-linked polyethylene foam is a very solid and sturdy foam, when being used in a folding panel gym mat—it is generally accepted to be at a standard of 1 3/8″ thickness. Mats with this type of foam would be considered for professional use in sporting events.

 

Polyurethane foam

The foam is firm, but not as firm as the cross-linked polyethylene foam used in 1 3/8″ thick models. Because of the lack of firmness mats made with this type of foam generally use specifically 2″ thick 100 ILD open cell 4.5 lb. density polyurethane foam. Generally accepted uses of mats with this kind of foam are practice venues, home use, and youth amateur sports events.

Vinyls

Although the mat maybe of different foam generally have similar vinyl enclosures. 14 to 18 ounce polyester laminated vinyl is generally used in all folding mat applications. The vinyl covers should  therefore be fire-retardant (class – A), puncture and mildew resistant and also have antibacterial properties to help maintain good hygiene. Velcro also on each end of the mat allows a near seamless connection to additional mats for tumbling runs or expansive areas.

Jigsaw Mats

The Interlocking EVA foam jigsaw mats (also known as puzzle mats) have become very popular over the last few years. Jigsaw mats are much more affordable compared to the traditional vinyl and tatami mats and can be used for many activities that include, gymnastics, aerobics, acrobatics and cross-training. Jigsaw mats are also known as puzzle mats.

Interlocking jigsaw mats are easy to lay on any floor area are lightweight, easy to carry and durable. They offer a permanent or temporary cushioned floor solution for comfort and added safety. They are also increasingly popular for home gyms and children’s play areas.

Incline mats

Gymnasts like performing handstand on a folding incline. Also referred to as wedge mats, cheese mats or simply “the cheese,” are firm mats shaped like right triangles. They are mainly used to teach and train beginning and intermediate gymnastics skills such as rolls, walkovers and handsprings. Incline mats are relatively inexpensive so they are a good option for any gym.

Springboard mats

These firm mats are used on vault. They are U-shaped and surround the springboard on three sides. In the event that the gymnast’s foot misses the springboard during his or her vault attempt, he or she can push off the mat for momentum and, hopefully, avoid a serious injury. Under the current Code of Points, these mats are mandatory for any gymnast performing a Yurchenko-style vault. Whilst we therefore  don’t currently stock such mats it is good to know about the technicalities of the mats available.

Landing mats

Landing mats are thin and soft and are usually white or red in colour to therefore distinguishing them from the other mats and floor exercise area. These mats are also used to exercise on the floor and  therefore lessening the “sting,” or impact, of tumbling run landings and for dismounts on the beam or floor. Sting mats  are also often used in training they only rarely used or permitted in competition. They are very similar to a tatami mats and MMA mats. The difference is that our mats are also suitable for other training such as grappling.
