Customer Review-ABC/123 Mats

Erika G. purchased some of our ABC-123 kids foam play mats for her daughter.  Here’s what she had to say about them:

“We used the tiles as the flooring for our daughter’s playroom.  It was very easy and fun to install them, we took our time making words with the tiles!  We are very satisfied with how it turned out from the ordering process to the setup!  Since the mats are rubber (Note: technically they are EVA foam but they feel pretty similar to rubber) it was an easy clean up as well!  I have already recommended to some of our friends and family!”

Thank you, Erika.  ABC-123 mats are a very popular product for us.  They are bright and colorful so they stimulate kids while also introducing them to basic letters and numerals.  These foam mats are also soft which makes for a better landing pad should the little ones take a tumble.

ABC-123 foam play mats are on sale right now with FREE SHIPPING!

Customer Review-Kid’s Foam Mats

We’re always happy to receive positive feedback.  This is a letter from Randy who purchased our Home Sport and Play Mats a couple weeks ago.  They’re on sale right now and come with free shipping!

“My wife and i have a 2 year old son (Jack) and another little boy due any day now. Realizing that winter is around the corner I decided Jack and I needed a safe place to run around and play indoors that would be out of mom’s way.
Our basement is partially developed. There’s a small “man cave” with a big screen tv and some pinball machines but the rest of the basement is a painted concrete foundation and lots of shelving. 
So i started doing some online research and discovered your company’s “playroom flooring.”
Jackpot! 
The tiles are vibrant, thick, provide great padding and are “customizable” with a few swipes of a box cutter. 
But best of all, they have warmed up our cold basement because of their insulation properties. 
As for installing them, i think i spent an hour experimenting with a few layout options. But about 30 minutes actually installing all of them.
Cutting the tiles to fit around shelf legs and corners was super easy. All i used was an old box cutter and a yard stick. I didn’t run into any challenges other than the fact that i should have ordered about 5 additional tiles. So what I did to cover a few gaps was get creative and connect a bunch of edge pieces together to fill in spaces that could have used a larger tile. 
My wife and I love the tiles. And so does our son because he now has his own playroom next to daddy’s “cave.”
I would definitely buy these tiles from greatmats.com again and I’ve already told my sister about them since she and her husband just had a son and want to develop a play space in their basement. 
Oh and i forgot to mention i love how easy they are to clean.
One of our cats decided to cough up dinner on one of the tiles and it was super easy to wipe up, then pull up the tile and give it a scrubbing outside with the hose. Plus it air dried in no time.
You guys have a great product, user-friendly website, fantastic shipping and we couldn’t be happier with our purchase.”

Thank you, Randy.  We’re happy that you’re happy!

Customer Review-Premium Foam Mats

Amy H. found an interesting way to use our premium 5/8″ foam mats.  While these mats are commonly used in kids play rooms, those rooms are usually in a house.  🙂

“We bought the tiles to go in our 1-1/2 year-old’s playroom in our fifth wheel travel trailer we just bought.  It has a vinyl type flooring that resembles wood.  We wanted it to have more cushion for safety and also we wanted it to look pretty and colorful like a playroom should,” Amy says.


Premium 5/8″ foam mats come in fifteen vibrant colors so it’s easy to find mats to match your decor. This type of foam flooring is an excellent choice for kids rooms, exercise rooms, basements, family rooms, and trade show booths.  The interlocking foam mats are 2×2′ and interlock together easily with no glue required.  You can lay them directly over any flat, hard surface.

“The installation went great!” Amy told us.  “It only took my husband about 45 minutes.  I went to the Greatmats website and downloaded the installation brochure and the care brochure.  My husband followed the suggestions on the brochure as recommended.  He used cardboard to use under the tiles to protect the floors and a utility knife to make the cuts.  We used borders and went wall to wall.  We had to make cuts even in the center of some tiles to cut where the vents were for our furnace.  I am happy to say we have run the furnace since installation and the tiles have not warped or been damaged by the heat.”

Unlike many foam mats on the market today, these play mats are comprised of a dense EVA foam which makes them tough.  They resist scuffing.  They are also waterproof.  You can also rest assured that they are lead and latex-free.

“We would absolutely buy this product again and are very pleased with it!”  Amy says.  We have already recommended this to friends and family and will continue to.  When we finished installing it, we took pictures and put hem on our Facebook accounts for our friends and family to see.  We got many compliments and questions on where we purchased it and the cost.  We bragged about the wonderful deal and many bright fun colors y’all had to choose from.  The playmats in stores are flimsy and always tend to fall apart.  They also come in too many pieces which is very frustrating because toddlers tend to pull them apart which makes the mat come apart.  I’ve now had this mat for quite some time and never had my toddler rip it up.  It is very easy to clean and is very sturdy!  We are so pleased with y’alls product!”

Thank you for your review, Amy.  We appreciate your business and the time you’ve taken to let us know your thoughts.

Home Sport and Play Mats

Ask any athlete and they’ll tell you:  You don’t want to be injured in competition and you REALLY don’t want to be injured practicing.  Nowhere is this truer than in martial arts where a poorly aimed throw or an awkward fall can sideline or even end a career.  If you don’t have the proper exercise mats to practice on at home, you are taking chances with your safety.


With our convenient Home Sport and Play mats you can enjoy the benefits and safety of a professional-quality martial arts and sport floor in a convenient 2×2 Ft foam mat size.  They are perfect for home gyms and home sporting activities.  This 7/8” mat is offered in 6 colors.  Each mat has two colors: they are double sided and double colored. This reversible interlocking design allows for two colors from one mat to be up at the same time.  They are great for martial arts as well as a number of other applications.  Use Home Sport and Play mats for kid’s rooms, floor exercises, aerobics, kickboxing, or any other place you need a soft, stable floor. 
These exercise mats provide fatigue relief.  They are remarkably easy to install and to pack up for installation.  Easy, interlocking edges allow you to create a stable and soft workout area in minutes.  Simply piece these foam mats together and you’re done.  Tight fitting seams resist dirt buildup.   When you’re ready to move the floor, all you have to do is pick the mats up and stack them.  They are lightweight and the handy 2×2’ size makes them easy to transport or store.  Home Sport and Play mats are odor free.  They are non-toxic, lead and latex free and you don’t have worry if one of your kids spills a drink on them.  These mats are waterproof.  Edges are non-beveled and will not present a tripping hazard.

Crash Pads

Top quality Crash Pads from Greatmats can be used in a number of different applications for several different purposes.  Initially designed as a foam safety mat to protect martial artists from takedowns and high throws, these foam mats are built to last.  They are excellent for drilling students on proper rolling techniques.  In cases such as a diving forward roll, good crash pads can be essential for safe MMA instruction.

Crash Pads come in three thicknesses:
Our 4″ Safety Mats are built for younger athletes where just a little extra protection is needed.  They are great for jumping around, wrestling, and learning the basics of various martial arts.  YMCA-type multipurpose facilities often purchase these mats for basic use.  They’re safer than the floor and, best of all, they’re fun!
Our 8″ mats are the staple of most martial arts programs.  Specifically designed for perfecting take-downs, they can provide a safe landing for adults in combat training of all sorts.  8” crash pads feature breather mesh on the sides that allows air to escape on impact.  This allows for an even landing for the athlete and protects the mat from damage.  These mats feature a double stitched, 18 oz. Vinyl coated poly surface.  These rugged tumbling mats have a heavy duty #10 zipper and feature 2” poly handles on all sides.
Use our 12″ crash matswhere extra protection is needed.  These safety mats provide extra safety for advanced moves, especially on dynamic throws.  In cases where a high release throw is used, this martial arts mat is the best option available. Like our 8” mat, they come with breather mesh, double stitched, 18 oz vinyl, a #10 zipper, and 2” poly handles on every side.
Each of our three thicknesses come in different sizes:  4×6, 4×8, 5×10, and 6×12.   The three largest sizes are also available as a bi-folding mat for easier storage.
All of our Crash Mats meet USAG, NCAA and NFHS competition specifications.

Greatmats Featured in Graciemag International

We’re proud that we’ve been featured in an article in the July issue of Graciemag International.  Graciemag is the first and only magazine in the world devoted exclusively to the teaching and coverage of Jiu Jitsu.

Greatmats.com sells a variety of different judo mats and flooring that is ideally suited for all types of martial arts and Graciemag has become a great partner for us.  Quality judo mats are critical for people who are training or competing in martial arts because they are the only things protecting the athlete from a hard, unforgiving surface.  In the past, Graciemags has heartily endorsed our judo mats in their magazine.

However, this particular article is unique in that it recognizes Greatmats for its contributions to the environment.  All of the electricity used by Greatmats.com is provided by solar panels with excess solar energy being sold back to the electric company.  “If you believe like I do that we need to move away from coal and nuclear power for the good of the planet, then I think we each have a responsibility to help make that change happen in whatever way we can,” says David Butler, owner.”   The solar panels are expected to pay for themselves in roughly ten years.
