Foam flooring for home gyms and kids play rooms

Home Gym Foam Flooring, Exercise Rooms, Kids Play Room Flooring

The softest, lightest and most colorful home gym flooring option that we carry is foam floor tiles. Our are available in a variety of thicknesses and mat densities. This determines how hard they feel when you jump (or fall) on the tiles as well as how long the foam tiles hold up. Density is a measurement of how much foam there is per square inch. One foam floor tile can be thicker but less dense than another foam tile. This is why, for example, our dense 3/8 inch Elite Exercise Tiles will probably last longer in an aerobic flooring setting than our Premium 5/8 inch tiles even though the Premium tiles are the thicker product.

Before you decide which type of foam tile to choose, ask yourself how the floor will be used and who will be using it. If you're creating a play area for toddlers, the Premium is an excellent choice. Available in a variety of colors, they create a fun play floor for kids to run around on. However, if you're looking for a floor that will last a while for adults practicing Judo, you will want to consider something else (probably our Grappling 1-5/8''inch mats).

Foam is lightweight and easy to install. Simply interlock your foam tiles and cut them to fit your area. Border strips are available for most foam mats and allow you to turn your puzzle tiles into border or corner tiles. This makes creating an island layout simple. It also aids in creating a wall-to-wall layout because you can start against the wall with a straight edge piece.

Foam mats are available for barefoot use as well as for shoes and boots. How you'll use the flooring, who will use the flooring, and how long you want the flooring to last will help you decide which product to choose for your application.
