Donald Trump Trade War with China and Jigsaw Mats

Donald Trump’s Trade War With China Effect on Jigsaw Mats

Probably everyone has heard about Donald Trumps new tariffs against steel and now a whole range of goods worth $60 Billion against China. This is a trade conflict which has been brewing for some time now. Indeed Donald Trump was very vocal about his intention to fight China in trade and their perceived protection of their own industries. Now he has spoken with a whole range of tariffs and indeed China has reciprocated with its own.

Whilst the tariffs are only on Chinese goods entering the United States of America they are going to have a profound effect of global trade and pricing. China is a large purchaser of commodities from a range of countries including Australia. Any disruption to the supply chain can have a domino effect. So for example if China no longer needs as many such commodities then it may exert downward pressure on their prices. Similarly a cut in their own production might push prices higher for others.

How this will effect jigsaw mats remains to be seen. Jigsaw mats are manufactured from EVA which is a petroleum by-product. Therefore any movement in petroleum based products can have an effect on pricing. But on the other hand if Chinese access becomes to the US market becomes limited there may be excess supply of jigsaw puzzle mats which could push prices lower for the rest of the world. So as you can see the effect that Donald Trump’s new protectionist policies have on global jigsaw mat pricing is varied.

The same can be said about all types of gym mats. With the exception of some mats, like Zebra Mats which are manufactured in Germany, and other specialist mats, most gym mats are manufactured in China these days. Indeed most low cost products are manufactured in China or other countries in Asian. So if there is a disruption to the markets then one would expect an effect on the pricing of such products. What effect they will have we will have to wait and see.

Angela Magana Suffers Nipple Slip on Mat

Angela Magana has suffered a wald-robe malfunction during UFC 218 with her nipple exposed during the fight. Unfortunately the episode distracted from what was a brilliant fight between two seasoned fighters. It is unfortunate that something so trivial could detract from what was a significant event in the UFC history.  Any fight on the MMA mat  should be taken more seriously then something so ridiculous. Fortunately Angela can keep her head up high for what was a great effort.

What is a little know fact is that MMA fighters more then likely have trained on jigsaw mats in there lives. Gym mats are an integral part of any training regime. It is almost certain that Angela Magana at some point trained on jigsaw mats. Make no mistake, jigsaw mats are the best possible option for inexpensive mats for any person requiring training mats for MMA training. If a person were to look for a great training mat that would look no further then gym mats.

Jigsaw mats are an integral component to any training gym. They are a relatively cheap alternative and are great for any professional or home gym. Anyone looking to train in MMA should consider EVA mats for there training area. People looking for such mats should look no further then a professional gym mat supplier.

Martial Arts Mats for Krava Maga and BJJ

Martial Arts Mats Increasingly Popular

The proliferation of Brazilian Jiu-jitsu, Krava Maga and other combat sports has greatly increase the popularity of martial arts mats. 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.

So if you are looking at improving the safety of your schools environment then consider a safety mat. They are often light weight and easy to more and store, and they are sure to at least reduce the risk of injury. Of course the best prevention for injury is common sense and care.

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.

Why Interlocking Mats Are The Best?

With the proliferation of 24 hours gyms and home training there has been an explosion of the need for anti-fatigue mats. Anti-fatigue mats not only look good and mark out the designated area for training but they assist in limiting injury due to vigorous training. The need for ant-fatigue mats can’t be overstated when discussing training and the effects on the body both positive and negative.

While they are a large variety of gym mats on the market one can not look past interlocking flooring. Interlocking flooring is a great choice when considering what type of gym mats to install in your establishment. It has many advantages over other types of floor which I will discuss here.

Easy Installation of Interlocking Floor Mats

One of the greatest advantages of these kinds of mats is that they are easy to install. With many other types of mats and flooring you generally need a professional to install them for you. Often you also need adhesive in order to keep the that or flooring from moving around. With interlocking mats this is not the case. All you need to do is arrange a pattern and determine the designated area. Calculate how many mats you require and simple install. The mats come together like a jigsaw puzzle which is why they are also know as jigsaw mats. However they are not like a complicates jigsaw puzzle. The jigsaw pattern repeats itself which makes it so much easier to put together.

Cost Effective Gym Mats

The best part of these mats is that they are the most cost effective type of training mats on the market. They are made of EVA foam which is an abundant product making the manufacturing of the product relatively cheap. Also the compact nature of the product make it easy and cheap to ship. Other mats which might come in a roll take up much more room per square meter which make it a less attractive product to ship.

Flexible Product For Gyms

As the flooring is made up of just individual mats it is very flexible when trying to customise areas for training. The mats themselves are double sided and come in different colours per side. So if you are looking at marking out areas in your training gym it makes it easier. Or if you have a martial arts gym and want to make out specific sparring area so that students know their bounds it is remarkably  easy. You just make a plan and stick to it.

  • 20mm blue / red jigsaw mats
  • 20mm black / red jigsaw mats
  • 20mm black /   grey jigsaw mats

If you are setting up a gym or a training area it is always important what kind of ant-fatigue mats you may require. Obviously there are many options and they all depend on what kind of mat you require. Just remember it is better to have something then nothing. The main use for the area in question is what you might want to consider first.

If you are looking at a weight training area or somewhere where there will be equipment the best option is usually rubber mats. Rubber mats have a higher density and are thinner so there is less room for deformation. They tend to be heavy but that doesn’t matter after to lay them down.

If it is an area where people are likely to be jumping up and down then you might want to consider jigsaw mats. These mats are make from EVA foam which means they have good absorbing qualities. Our EVA foam mats are easy to put together and come in a variety of colours and thicknesses. Just like our 20mm jigsaw mats coming to Melbourne they are very popular.

If you are looking at fitting out an area please give us a call. We are always happy to help in guiding you with your jigsaw and gym mats needs.

Gymnastics Mats Explained

Interlocking Gymnastics Mats


If you’re looking for gymnastics mats for your studio or gym, here at Ezy Mats we supply a large range of interlocking gymnastics mats as well as tatami gymnastics mats which are perfect for any requirement.

Available in various thicknesses, which is determined by your needs, it is important to understand what you need before purchasing and the staff at Ezy Mats are the best place to start if you have any questions.


What is a Gymnastics Mat


Simply put, a gymnastics mat is a single mat (like our tatami mat) or a large section of mats (like the interlocking jigsaw mats) made of EVA foam which helps absorb impacts like jumping or falling. EVA foam is an expanded foam and offers plenty of support no matter which style of gymnastics you are undertaking.

Our gymnastics mats are like a jigsaw system, which means you can set up the floor how you like, interlocking each mat together. These mats are easy to pack up and store away, making them a great product whether you have a small studio or a large gym.

 Interlocking Gymnastics Mats

Ezy Mats’ gymnastics jigsaw mats have the benefit of being interlocking, which means you can connect as many mats together as you need, in the space that you have or the space that you need; they are simply referred to as jigsaw mats, as like a jigsaw puzzle, they lock into each other for stability.

Easy to assemble, easy to pack up, durable and comfortable – these are the mats you need for your gymnastics training areas.


Gymnastics Mats Thicknesses / Sizes


With three different sizes available, these gymnastics mats are suitable for a range of training purposes. Our mats come in 20mm, 30mm and 40mm thicknesses and in a size of 1m x 1m which will be able to be put together to fit in all room sizes.

How to choose your mat thickness? The 20mm mats are generally used in activities where the risk of falls and jumping is low – think warm up sessions, or children’s gymnastic classes. As you start to move up in the intensity of the gymnastics session, you will need to move up in thicknesses. The 30mm mats are great for activates where there is potential for light falls and jumping – like floor work. Our 40mm mats are then generally used for situations where falls might be more prevalent such as under bars or beams.

As the intensity in the workload increases, so to should your choice of mat thicknesses.


Gymnastics Mats Uses


The Ezy Mats gymnastics mat range is used across a large range of gymnastics training as well as in gyms. Our past customers have used the mats for floor work, aerobics, Pilates, cross-training, boot camp training and more. They are a great option for any gym. We also have vinyl tatami gymnastics mats for added support during more intense exercise or for more comfort for your Pilates or yoga session. These mats are durable and easy to clean and store.

At Ezy Mats, we aim to be the most economical supplier of interlocking gymnastics mats and tatami gymnastics mats in the Australian market. Should you find cheaper mats elsewhere, we’d love the opportunity to beat any reasonable quote for the same product.

There are many benefits to using foam jigsaw interlocking gymnastic mats including:

  • Easy to install
  • Simple interlocking puzzle system
  • Made from EVA foam
  • Durable and easy to clean
