To provide safety and protection from gym walls, the most common solution is to use gym wall pads. These wall pads can be used in grade schools, universities and also commercial gyms.

Greatmats main Gym Wall Padding is available in custom sizes, cutouts, many colors and are equipped with a wood backing to allow for direct wall attachment. They are 2″ thick, have 14-ounce vinyl covers for excellent durability, optional Z-clip installation options and are made in the USA.
Our more basic option is a 4×8 foot x 1.5 inch gym mat with durable 18-ounce vinyl covers. They are available in a variety of brilliant colors. While these folding mats are suitable for floor use, they can also be attached to the wall to serve as wall pads.
When designing custom wall pads for your gym, you need to be mindful of areas that need to be accessed, such as wall outlets, light switches, fire extinguishers, etc. Our wall pads can be custom designed around your obstacles so that they attach perfectly while still leaving exposed the areas you need accessible. We can even custom pad your gym doors around the handles and windows for a non-invasive, clean installation.
Would you like your logo, team name, team mascot or other image on your wall mats? These can easily be added to your gym wall pads.

Channel-Style I-Beam Pads use a channel design to wrap around the face and the edges of the I-beam. They are made with 3 inch thick polyurethane foam and covered with 18 oz vinyl coated polyester fabric.
Our pole pads and post padding is a common solution for covering steel support poles in basements and goal post bases on football fields. These pads simply wrap around the pole and connect back to themselves using a 2-inch hook and loop fastening flap.

Z-clips make installing your custom made gym wall pads pads easier. These innovative clips can be attached to the back of the pads by screwing them into the plywood panel backing. The other side of the clip is then screwed into the wall, making for a simple, clean installation. The mounting hardware is concealed behind the wall pads.
