Safe Room Wall Padding

Greatmats gym wall pads and padding offer the best solutions for safe room wall padding. These wall mats are designed specifically to endure punishing athletic environments, where people are exerting enormous amount of energy and force. Our wall pads can even be custom fit to your safe room to cover virtually any wall surface.

Greatmats Gym Wall Pads for Safe RoomsOur wall mats feature a 2-inch polyurethane foam core, and are available with ASTM impact rated foam padding. The padding cover is crafted from 16 ounce phthalate free vinyl, and the covers are treated to be both anti-fungal and anti-bacterial to ensure a healthy environment. The vinyl cover is puncture and tear-resistant, and these pads are backed by a 1-year limited manufacturer warranty so you can buy with confidence.

Our wall padding ships with all of the hardware that you need for installation, and you’re able to choose from two different installation methods:

  1. Lip: Lip top and bottom pads feature a 1-inch lip at the top and bottom of each pad. This lip allows you to directly screw the pads onto the wall, or to use a 1-by-1-inch furring strip that is first attached to the wall, then attached to the pad.
  2. Z-Clip: Z-Clip installation utilizes a channel connection method. One channel is connected to the pad, and a receiving channel is connected to the wall. The Z-Clips are attached to the back of the pads. The Z-Clips are shipped with the pads, and screws for attachment are included. The Z-Clips are pre-cut to length, and the panels are pre-drilled to receive the screws, minimizing the amount of work that you need to do during installation.

You may also want to consider folding gym mats for your safe room. These are some of the most versatile forms of padding for high-impact areas such as personal safety rooms and martial arts facilities. They offer up to 2 inches of impact absorbing padding and can be used on walls, floors, or anywhere you need a padded safety surface. These mats, however, are harder to customize as they come in 4 or 5 foot widths and feature 2-foot wide panels, allowing for lengths in two foot increments. They may be an ideal lower-cost solution for solid walls, whereas our gym mats with more customization options may be used for doors and walls featuring windows. Folding gym mats can be used to create a safer and softer flooring.
