Compact Karate Puzzle Mat Installation
The thick interlocking foam mats fit together easily and securely. Each tile comes with two border pieces, so you can create a finished island installation, or cut the mats to fit a wall-to-wall installation with a sharp utility knife.
If you need to remove the tiles, just pull them up. You can re-position them, clean under them and reinstall them. Transportation is easy, thanks to the softiles' convenient size. And if an area is damaged or dirty, you can repair or replace just that section, rather than having to repair the entire floor. Don't forget that you can also change the dimensions of your floor by re-positioning the tiles, and if you would like to expand your floor at a later date, you can simply add more tiles.
At a compact 2x2 foot size, these mats can easily be stacked and stored when not in use. In many cases they'll even fit neatly in a closet, workshop cabinet or on a garage workbench.
These soft floor tiles can be installed directly over any hard floor. For aerobics, do not place the tiles on top of carpeting, as foam tiles can shift.
Begin your installation in one corner of the room, and use the provided border strips along the walls where you start your installation. If you plan to cut the soft tiles into a door jamb, then consider starting on a wall that is opposite this door so that when cutting the mats to fit, you can also cut the tiles as needed into the door jamb space.
These soft tiles will easily cut with a sharp utility knife. Consider using a straight edge to guide you. Cutting through one inch of this soft tile may take two passes; after the first pass you can bend the floor tile and open the cut seam to make the second pass with your knife easier.
Always use a sharp blade when cutting this type of foam soft tile.
When installing the tiles, keep in mind that they can expand with changes in heat and humidity. Allow 1/2 inch expansion gap for wall to wall installations.
This foam tile is not rated for commercial use in high traffic areas.
Please note: High heels may puncture the tiles.
When used outside, the tiles may expand and curl if they are exposed to direct sunlight in warm climates for extended periods of time.

Home Martial Arts Studio Flooring
Want the convenience of your own martial arts studio in your home? Soft tiles are an excellent flooring choice. These tiles provide enough cushion to help absorb impact, creating a safe soft floor that has enough firmness to it for martial arts practice. If you want to get ahead of the game by practicing martial arts without heading to the studio, these foam tiles may be the perfect way to create a studio in the comfort of your own home.

Lead free and latex free, this soft floor is safe even for children who are crawling and who like to put things in their mouths.
Home Basement Flooring
Because the soft tiles do not absorb water, they are ideal for use in areas where moisture may be an issue, like in basements. These tiles can transform the hard, cold concrete of your basement floor into a welcoming, comfortable soft floor. The tiles will add versatility to your basement space, so you can use it as a martial arts practice area or just a great place for your kids to play.

Don't forget that these tiles are incredibly easy to clean. They're non-absorbent, so if drinks spill, it's no big deal. Vacuum the floors regularly to keep them looking great, and touch them up with a mop every now again. An easy to clean floor is a must for a playroom, and these tiles meet that demand.
Home Sports Floors
Softiles are an excellent option if you're looking to create a sports floor in your basement or home. These tiles interlock securely, so you don't have to worry about them separating during play. The cushioned surface is forgiving to impact, and kids can roughhouse safely.
To keep your soft tiles looking great, clean them regularly with a vacuum. Your vacuum should be set at the highest setting, or use the hose and nozzle. Do not use the power head on your vacuum; doing so could damage the tiles. Please first test your vacuum on the thick interlocking foam mats to make sure that your vacuum does not damage them before proceeding to vacuum the entire floor.
As necessary, damp mop the tiles with a basic household soap and hot water. You can spot clean the tiles by using a scrubby and a sponge.
For deep cleaning, you can take the tiles up, clean them, and then put them back down when dry. The tiles will not absorb any water, but make sure that they are completely dry before reinstalling your floor.
For tiles installed in larger commercial areas, we recommend using a walk-behind auto cleaning machine for regular maintenance.
Steam cleaning may heat up the tiles, causing them to expand.
Product can be damp mopped with common household floor cleaners, avoid bleach. Test your vacuum before use.Shipping

Manhasset , NY
Purchased for both martial arts and weights (home gym). I've been doing martial arts for years and was disappointed in the mats performance. I had many issues, so I will try to break them out.
1) Sales process was great.
2) Most mats arrived in poor condition, as if they were used or factory seconds. This includes scuffing, dirt, gouges, and even what looked like food. In addition, half of the mats from a sealed box came single color (grey/grey) vs double color.
3) **Horrible** experience trying to get replacements the issues above. I sent many pictures and there was no urgency from the Dir of Ops. Emails were clearly not read. Phone calls were unreturned. I even got an email that said he got my voicemail but was sick, but somehow the follow-up email I sent went unanswered. ** This destroyed the purchasing experience. **
4) The replacements came more than 30 days later.
5) Regarding the product itself. The ''home'' version is much squishier than larger, non-home versions and the samples I was sent. The top is very slippery, which is typical of new mats, but even after use has not improved. These have limited durability and will scuff from shoes and bare feet. I expected more from these mats.
Not a factor in my rating is the dogs got in there one time and have dimpled the mats with their nails. The goal was to keep them out of the gym, so keep this in mind if you have animals.
The mats work great - easy to install and are a pretty good match for mats at our tournaments (just smaller - which is good when space constrained). Just keep in mind that you might need double sided tape to secure them if not enclosed in a fixed border. Added bonus - basement looks a lot less ''unfinished''.
Easy to install, although it was much harder than anticipated.
Mats have good cushion and make it pleasant to sit on the floor in our basement. The only big negative is that there is something on the mats that gets on the surrounding floor that is very slippery. The mats are not slippery but something seems to come off the mats to make areas nearby slick. Maybe they need a soap and water wash to remove a finishing agent???

Great product!! I have recomended these to my fellow teammates. They make great surfaces to go over the best of techniques. Very easy to move from one room to another. Easy to put together and take apart for storage.

Nice product. Good support, comfortable to exercise on. Separates and relinks easily for changing configuration.
Eagle River, WI
I bought 36 pieces, so far so good.
They are exactly what we need! They are easy to store and assemble. They provide enough cushioning on our concrete garage floor to exercise, practice lungful and eskrima. They shipped quickly and everything was as expected. Thank you!
The product is exactly what I expected and does a great job padding the floor and preventing injuries. The product also appears very durable.
Fast service on mats that are what I expected. This is the second order and would order again.
I love my mats. It was a bit mind bending to put the boarder around but other than that awesome :)
Mount Vernon, WA
I have always had great service, with high quality products from this company...I have done business with them at least 6 times and have always had an outstanding experience!

Stuff works great.
I ordered Home Athletic Sport Floor Tile 1 Inch Red/Blue mats for our tiled basement for the kids for Christmas. They arrived promptly without any flaws. They are thick and offer a good cushion for jumping and tumbling. The kids love rearranging them and mixing the colors/designs. My husband dropped paint and spackle on them while making repairs to the wall, but the dust, paint, and spackle washed off easily with a soft sponge and dish detergent. Once the dog didnt get out on time and took it out on the mat. Although there was spillage over the seams, it didnt even leak to the floor below! I HIGHLY recommend these mats and Great Mats to supply them.
The quality of these mats is excellent and the price was better than I found at other stores. Because of issues with my computer I couldn't place my order on line. When I called to place my order the salesperson was extremely helpful and professional. Delivery was very quick. The mats were a gift for my daughter and her husband. They liked them so much they ordered more.
Great mats! We bought them for a kids gymnastics area in our basement (250ft 2) and love them. Easy to install. Easy to clean. Helpful customer service when we had technical problems with the website when ordering additional mats.

Great product, fast delivery, and no hassle. Overall, I am very satisfied with the service and quality of the product. However, mats do smell some, so air time will be needed to get rid of the chemical smell.
Hi--I got the mats for doing Thai massage in my livingroom! Set up and breakdown is easy and efficient. The zero smell factor is so appreciated by myself and others. I find the quality of product high and the price very reasonable. Thank you for many yummy massages to come!
