The Right Foam Mat for Exercise and Workout Spaces
Exercise rooms are another popular place for our customers to install premium 5/8-inch interlocking puzzle mats. Try our foam mat floor planner to design your layout to scale. When using a foam tile for an exercise room floor, you have a few things to consider. Will it be used under heavy furniture or machines? Will it be an open space for aerobics or martial arts-type activities? Will it be a multipurpose room?

Typically, exercise equipment and heavy furniture will leave some indentation in the foam. This will not hurt the material, but you may want to consider using a pad, such as furniture coasters to help prevent permanent indentations. Be sure to install these interlocking mats over a hard, flat surface for aerobic activities.


Interlocking foam floor mats are great for exercise rooms, but you may also consider an upgrade to our Home Sport and Play mat for additional cushion and versatility. This product is 7/8-inch thick and is available in three color combinations. Each Home Sport and Play mat features two different colors; one color per side. They are reversible, allowing you choose either color to display. They are lightweight and can usually ship via ground service. This can save money compared to freight delivery, especially for residential customers. Greatmats interlocking foam mats are easy to cut with a sharp utility knife for custom wall-to-wall installation.

Install the Right Foam Mats for Your Basement
Foam mat flooring for basements can turn any hard, cold floor into a comfortable, warm, and soft surface full of color and life. Dull and hard basement floors can become comfortable and welcoming areas for increased activity and family time when an interlocking foam floor is installed. Bring bright color, design, and safety to your basement with Greatmats puzzle mats.


These mats are waterproof and made of closed cell EVA foam. The closed cell material does not allow mold or bacteria from a damp floor to penetrate your mats. Our foam mats also act as a vapor barrier to any potential moisture coming up through a concrete floor and provide insulation against cold concrete, making it much warmer and pleasant for bare feet.

Compared to large rolls of flooring, such as carpet or linoleum, the 2×2 foot interlocking design of the tile cuts down drastically on wasted material.

Interlocking Foam Mats for Trade Shows and Events
When our customers must stand for hours at a time, they are thankful for foam mats, which are particularly useful in a trade show or events booth.

It is easy to create a 10×10 foot trade show booth layout with 25 mats. A 10×20 foot trade show or special events booth would require 50 foam mats, while a 20×20 foot trade show booth will require 100 mats. Whatever the case, this foam trade show flooring will transport easily and install in a flash.

Consider a hard, plastic cargo ready carrying case to transport and store your mats for years of use. We have many sizes of durable carrying cases for you to choose. They range in sizes from 2×4 and 4×4 feet and all the way up to cases that carry 200 mats for a 20×40 foot booth. This creates better convenience when moving the mats to different show locations.

Wisconsin Woman Brings Foam Floor Mats To Life for Halloween

From Bumblebee to Arcee to Heavy Machinery, Wisconsin Mother Creates Costumes from Foam Puzzle Mats

By Brett Hart

Having already built a reputation for creating elaborate Halloween costumes, Tia Hoffmann of Pewaukee, Wisconsin, set the bar a bit higher a few years ago when she and her then fiance’ attended a Halloween themed engagement party.

Bumblebee & Arcee Transformers Halloween Costume Tia Hoffman Greatmats Foam Floor Tiles

”We wanted to surprise everybody with our costumes,” Tia said. ”They knew every year, we had something elaborate.”

Inspired by the Transformers movies, Tia came up with a plan to dress her husband as the yellow Camaro, Bumblebee, and herself as the motorcycle, Arcee. The first challenge was finding the right materials to create the costumes. She needed something lightweight, yet dense enough to hold its shape.

”I considered something like a PVC material and really just thought it was too heavy,” Tia said. ”I started looking at stores, going up and down aisles to see if I had any materials that popped into my mind, and then I saw yoga mats.”

Tia determined the yoga mats were too malleable, but knew she was on the right track.

”Then I thought of those foam floor mats, and I was like, ‘Oh my gosh. That would be great.”’

After a little research, she stumbled upon the website Greatmats.com where she found just what she needed – 5/8 inch thick Premium Foam Floor Mats.

She ordered five of the 2×2 foot mats in yellow for Bumblebee and another three mats in Purple for her Arcee costume. The project consumed her living room and her time for about three months as she constructed the jaw dropping costumes out of these foam tiles.

Using photos and her own imagination and references, Tia logged more than 800 hours working on the costumes.

”We couldn’t invite anyone over, and if we did, we had to scramble and shove everything into a bedroom,” Tia said.

But the time, effort and research paid off as Tia was able to successfully bring her ideas to life.

”I have a very cooperative husband who allows be to dress him up in elaborate costumes every year,” Tia said.

The experience also planted a seed for future costumes.

A couple years later, Tia came across a woman on Facebook looking for someone who could create a Halloween costume for her child who needed a wheelchair to get around. Tia knew just what she could do to help and ordered another 15 foam tiles from Greatmats and donated her time to create a Caterpillar front end loader costume to adorn the child’s wheelchair.

This August, Tia connected with that mother again and they decided to have Tia construct a fire truck costume for the boy using just seven foam tiles and 15 hours of her time.

”I really like using the foam,” Tia said. ”It’s works really well for what I do. I have no education in art, but I’ve always been creative and crafty.”

Since 2011, Tia has constructed four costume’s using the foam tiles, including bride and groom Lego characters. Now the mother of a 9-month-old child and owner of a new puppy, Tia’s time and focus is a little more restricted, but the experiences have inspired her to help other families with disabilities.

Her goal is to set up an annual charitable event where several families with children in similar circumstances can enjoy the festivities of Halloween.

Archie Sutton Hospital Wall Art Sculpture Made of Foam Gym Floor Tiles

Pebble Top Gym Floor Tile Art, Arizona Wall Art Using Pebble Top Gym Floor Tiles

By Brett Hart

Struggling to find a suitable substrate for a wall installation at a new hospital Arizona artist Archie Sutton’s online discovery of Greatmats.com was a pleasant surprise. Sutton, eight years removed from an Air Force career, was facing his biggest artistic challenge since becoming a full-time artist. His project… create a commercial installation on a 12 feet by 20 feet curved wall in the Veteran’s Hall of the new Canyon Vista Medical Center in Sierra Vista, Ariz.

Archie Sutton Wall Art Flag with Greatmats Foam Tiles

”I wanted to do something that occupied the space with a sense of flow on a static wall,” Sutton said. ”I wanted to honor veterans, but also the staff, patients and visitors of the hospital.”

Sutton, who was asked by the hospital art team to provide sample ideas, sketched out a gray silhouette of his ”Stars and Stripes” piece on white paper. The rest was an act of faith on behalf of the art team as they entrusted this large project to Sutton on very little information.

Sutton looked at balsa wood, foam and landscaping materials to serve the structural needs of the project and initially settled on horse stall mats. But he quickly realized that option was much too heavy to hang on the wall. That’s when a web search led him to Greatmats.com where he found just what he was looking for.

Impressed by ”good options and good prices,” Sutton opted for Pebble Top Foam Gym Floor Tiles to serve the purpose. Flexibility, durability, weight and aesthetics all played important roles in the choice of mats.

Sutton commended Greatmats staff for answering his questions about the product and handling the ordering process in a professional manner. ”Tina was great.” he said.

”I wanted my substrate to be black and have a relief from the wall of 3/4 inch,” Sutton added. ”When I found pebble top foam, it all came together. … (It’s characteristics) gave me peace of mind to know it was archival to last for many years as real-property in a permanent commercial setting.”

Needing the pieces to connect, Sutton used 17 interlocking tiles of the foam gym floor. The mats interlocking tabs allowed the piece to attach, unnoticed, to the wall. It also made it possible to move the entire piece in manageable 2 feet by 2 feet sections.

”It provided me the an aesthetic relief off the wall that helped create shadows and the flow I was looking for,” Sutton said. ”The mats gave me the ability of conforming the wall sculpture in a seamless fashion to a curved space.”

Sutton cut and polished the tiles and then seamed the interlocking pieces together with a circuit board on site. He then used pale patina’d circuit copper board for the stars and white stripes.

”I left out the blue and red to blend and marry into the existing wall.”

”Doing a flag is tricky,” Sutton said. ”We see it every day. Bringing something unique that also is respectful and represents my body of work was my vision.”

After more than 400 hours of work on the project, Sutton’s finished product covered more than 160 square feet (8.8 feet by 18.8 feet) and weighed just 60 pounds. As for his 8 remaining Greatmats tiles… He sent those over to his brother’s restaurant to be used in a walk-in refrigerator.
