Dog Agility Use

Greatmats blue custom foam tiles dog agility flooringBecause of the no-slip surface texture of the bottom of this foam tile, it can be used for dog agility flooring when installed upside down. You can expect to see some toenail scuffing, puncturing, indentations or other markings in the surface of the dog agility mats. This does concern some customers aesthetically when it initially occurs. However, these surface markings and indentations will not affect the performance of the agility mats or change the dog agility mat’s ability to provide maximum anti-fatigue cushion and traction.

Installation

Black Gray Foam Matting 1/2 Inch Greatmats interlockingThis foam tile can be placed directly on any hard, flat surface. Simply interlock the mats together and use. These foam mats are lightweight and portable. They are easily removed if needed.

Allow the foam mats to acclimate to your room before installation. The foam can expand with changes in heat and humidity, allow a 1/4-inch expansion gap for wall to wall installations.

For aerobics or exercise activities, do not place the mats on top of carpeting, as the mats can shift.

When used outside, the foam mats may expand and curl if exposed to direct sunlight in warm climates for extended periods of time.

Maintenance

Have your vacuum cleaner set at highest setting, or just use hose and nozzle. Don’t use a power head. High-heeled shoes can puncture the foam mats.

You also can use a mop and warm water on the mats for a more thorough cleaning. Do not use a bleach based cleaning product on the tiles, but most general household floor cleaners will be safe to use.

Steam cleaning may heat up the tiles and cause them to expand.

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.

Customer Review-Premium Foam Mats

Carol M. sent us a nice review and photo.  She selected our 5/8” Premium Foam Matsfor her project and, if this picture is any indication, it turned out fantastic!  (Did we mention these mats are on sale and come with free shipping?)



Here’s what Carol had to say:  “The mats are wonderful and very substantial in thickness.  My little grandaughter’s playhouse could be on the cover of a magazine….. What a color match! The samples you sent were spot on perfect.

The company and its representatives were very informative and nice to work with and I certainly would order from you again.  I will definitely recommend your company and your mats.  Thank you.”
