“Very easy. The hardest work was cleaning the floor before I put them down.” -Jacqui D.
Today’s review comes to us from Jacqui who chose our 1/2” Economy Foam Puzzle Mats for her basement floor. She was looking for a floor where she could practice agility at night or when the weather is bad.
“I was going to buy a 40 x 40” specially for agility. The cost was more and the shipping was expensive. There was free shipping on the 2×2 tiles and even though they are 1/4” thinner, they are fine for my home use.”
Economy foam mats are great for home users for a number of different reasons. As Jacqui said, they are currently offered with free shipping. Also, the smaller size makes them easier to install and move around. They are shipped via UPS or FedEx Ground delivery. Home users often find this is much more convenient than dealing with a large freight delivery. Larger aerobics tiles are typically for larger rooms with more square footage requirements and commercial applications.
We asked Jacqui if she was happy with the product and she said, “yes, very happy.”
These foam mats are also a great flooring solution for other applications. Use them as kid’s flooring in schools and pre-schools, for dog agility areas, in basements and garages, indoor sports and multipurpose rooms, or even parachute staging areas. They can lay directly on any hard surface, even concrete.
Economy foam mats are easy to clean and can be vacuumed and washed with soap and water. They require no adhesive for installation but provide a tight feet. This closed-cell EVA foam is waterproof and has no smell. They will not absorb moisture or other liquids.

Here’s another great review, this time from Dannette M. Dannette purchased our 5/8″ premium foam mat which is an excellent, and economical, foam floor option for a variety of applications. Dannette used these foam mats as an office and workout floor.
“I live in a garden floor apartment in Brooklyn with a finished basement floor,” she says. “I use the basement as my office and workout area (mostly for P90X and Insanity which can involve a lot of plyometric or jumping exercises.) I was finding that my yoga mat was very confining when doing these workouts and I have knee problems, so I was looking for something to help reduce the impact on my knees and vie me a little elbow room.”
All of our interlocking foam mats are made with a high density EVA foam material that provides excellent cushion for various aerobic activities. Easy to piece together, these tiles interlock with one another like a large puzzle. This provides a stable flooring option that requires no adhesive for installation. Dannette says, “the installation was extremely easy and the edge pieces fit nicely together.”
Foam mats are soft and warmer than hard surfaces. They are also waterproof. Available in 15 bright colors, they add fun and warmth to any room. These mats come with a one-year manufacturer’s warranty and should last for ten years or more in a normal residential setting. The 5/8” premium foam mats are our most popular product.
“It was nice to be able to mix and match the edge pieces to create a funky look. Since the ceramic tiles on which I was installing the mats are pretty slippery, I ended up using carpet tape to keep the mat secure. Peeling the double-sided tape apart was the hardest part of the whole project.”
These foam mats are so popular because of their versatility. We find that a large variety of people enjoy these mats. We sell them to both nurseries as playmates and to military bases for training exercises.
5/8” Premium foam mats are convenient and easy to handle because they’re so lightweight. This makes installation and breakdown remarkably easy. For wall-to-wall installations, the tiles can be easily cut with a sharp utility knife. When it’s time to relocate, simply stack them up and you’re on your way.
“I would definitely buy the product again,” Dannette told us. “I love the “grown-up” colors and the ability to mix and match. I love the thickness and the quality.”
“Shipping was quick. Customer service has been very professional.”
Thank you, Dannette, for trusting Greatmats to help you find the perfect flooring solution for you. We appreciate your business.

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.
We’re on HGTV! Earlier this month, our interlocking rubber tile (Kids Ergo Matta – see below for product link) was featured on an episode of “My Yard Goes Disney” on HGTV. They needed safe flooring for little kids to play on outdoors so they chose ours! Waterproof, easy to clean, and guaranteed for five years, our product was the best on available for their needs.
In each episode of My Yard Goes Disney, lucky homeowners get a jaw-dropping makeover inspired by Disney Parks that’s worthy of major family playtime. HGTV and Disney Parks join forces to surprise lucky families with an eye-popping backyard makeover they never thought possible.
A brief synopsis: When Grandma lives next door and her backyard is, it’s time to knock down the fence and build a Magic Kingdom train running from yard to yard. This amazing track runs more than 200 feet, looping around the trees and creating an incredible journey from one ‘My Yard Goes Disney’ destination to another. The hand-powered train connects the backyards. Each yard also features play areas to please the kids. There’s a giant over-sized teacup that’s been transformed into a playhouse and is the perfect spot for tea parties and also a gigantic Sorcerer’s hat that doubles as a play area in the other. (Beneath the Hat is where they applied our flooring.)
