Home and Commercial Gym Mats
When training with weights or when using cardio equipment, the last thing that you want is risk damaging either your floors or expensive equipment. Damage could be cause by either dropping weights, or just the sheer weight of the cardio machines on the floor. Gym matting has a wide range of purposes and safety measures that makes it just as important as any other piece of exercise equipment.
Our home and commercial gym mats are designed to withstand falls of multiple heavy-weights and equipment, preventing damage to the floor or equipment.
Benefits of Home and Commercial Gym Matting
Shock absorption and noise reduction – When working out on a hard or non-cushioned floor, there is nothing beneath you to absorb shock and reduce body impact whilst exercising. This could lead to chronic joint pain or injury. The shock absorption can also help to prevent long lasting damage to the flooring from dropping weights or other apparatus. Gym mats can also help to reduce noise (perfect for training areas located upstairs), this is particularly useful for a home gym, as it will avoid disrupting other household members whilst you work out.
Prevent slips and falls - When working out, you need a safe non-slip flooring to provide traction underfoot. The surface of gym matting will provide a great slip resistant surface thanks to the textured surface, which help to prevent slip and fall accidents.
Easy and Quick Installation - No need for an expert fitter glue or nails Simply place your mat or tiles on any existing gym floor and enjoy the benefits straight away.
Easy to clean - Gyms are a place that can get dirty and unhygienic quickly. Our gym mats are super easy to clean with minimal effort or equipment. Simply soak or scrub your mat with warm soapy water and leave to air dry.
Can Gym Matting Help to Increase Performance?
Although not proven to improve performance, gym matting will reduce the impact on joints, muscles and tendons in comparison to standard hard flooring and concrete and therefore keep you performing for longer and reduce the chance of injury.
In addition too this, gym matting can help to decrease the temperate difference between the body and the floor, meaning you use less energy to regulate your body temperature, leaving for more energy for a few more reps!
Improving the hygiene of your home or commercial gym
Hygiene in gyms is of paramount importance. All of that bare-skin between the gym equipment and floors, makes it a breeding ground for pathogens, germs and viruses to spread and cause infections. Here are a few recommendations to safeguard against the spread of germs and bacteria in your gym:
- Use good quality entrance matting at both the indoor and outdoor entrance to your gym or home, to ensure that all dirt, dust, debris and moisture is stopped at the door, to prevent it making its way onto your gym floor.
- Wash your gym floor matting regularly with soapy water. This will health remove any sweat and other bodily fluids. Leave to air dry.
- Have your gym in a well ventilated area. Damp, poorly-ventilated areas in gyms can cause the growth of mould, which can reduce the life of your gym matting, as well as being bad for your health. Always make sure that all gym flooring is clean and dry as above before commencing your workout.
