Thicker puzzle mats are appropriate for more intense, higher impact sports, such as MMA, while lower thickness mats are more suitable for sports like yoga and gymnastics.

 

The majority of our foam mats are made from EVA (ethyl vinyl acetate), a blend of a rubbery copolymer of ethylene and vinyl acetate, often used in the soles of sports shoes. This material has a  proven ability to absorb shock and protect delicate joints and tendons from injury. Gym mats come in a variety of thicknesses, tailored for different use scenarios. At the moment, the company supplies puzzle mats in 20mm, 30mm and 40mm widths, as well as a variety of specialised tatami and MMA mats in 40mm.

The mats are easy to lay on any floor and are both durable and highly portable.

 

MMA mats are manufactured using heavy duty vinyl. They have a smooth finish, helping to reduce friction burns while providing maximum impact cushioning. Currently, the MMA mats from the company are available in 40mm in either black or grey and offer a low-cost solution compared to other leading brands in the industry.

US Dollar sales of gym mats

Weak Inflation Data Effect AUD

The Australian dollar tumbled after weak inflation data from the Bureau of Statistics. The rate of inflation came in at 0.2% which was below  the expected rate of 0.4%. The RBA would have been watching the core rate which was 0.5%. The core rate of inflation was according to the markets expectations. The AUD tumble by a quarter of a percent after the announcement. It then stabilised after the initial fall.

A fall in the AUD can usually be expected to lead to a increase in the cost of imported items. This is also true when it comes to foam mats. As foam mats are purchased using USD any fluctuation in the currency has an effect on foam mats. The effect may not be immediate but over time if there is a continual drop in the value of the dollar then it can be expected to have an effect on the price of foam mats.

Our interlocking mats remain the most competitively priced in the market. We have a large range of interlocking mats available at any particular time. We also have new mats coming in all the time. We just received a shipment of gym mats last week and will be receiving another shipment next week. It is always best to order your mats while the AUD is higher.

Premium Mats for Your Training

Direct Mats is a leading provider of incredible gym mats throughout Australia. We’ve got a selection of multi-purpose foam mats that are perfect for any gym floor. They’re available in different sizes and colours, depending on personal preference.

Our gym mats come in three different varieties:

Each type of mats has unique properties that make the mats perfect for certain activities and ideal for any floor space in your gym.

Jigsaw Mats

Our jigsaw mats are made from EVA foam which gives them amazing durability and impact resistance. They come in three different thickness varieties; 40mm, 30mm, and 20mm. The thicker the mat, the more resistant it is and the higher impact it can handle.

Traditionally, these mats are designed for many high impact sports such as martial arts and wrestling. Due to the thickness of the mats and their resistance to heavy loads, they’re also fantastic for use on the floor of a weights section in your gym.

They’re durable enough to handle weights being dropped over and over again. Our jigsaw mats can provide your gym floor with a cushioned surface to help protect the natural floor beneath as well as protecting your weights.

These mats are easy to put down and interlock like a jigsaw – hence the name. We offer various colour options as well as the thickness varieties mentioned earlier. They’re very popular amongst our customers who want to protect themselves from injury along with protecting their gym equipment.

MMA Mats

We sell high-quality MMA mats with a smooth vinyl finish. These mats are made with compressed foam to help give them some extra bounce and be effective at absorbing shocks. They’re primarily used for mixed martial arts practice and other activities that involve grappling.

Our MMA mats come in black/grey, and they’re 1m wide, 2m long, and 40mm thickness. This makes them perfect for a cardio area of your gym. Lay them down on the floor, and your customers can use them for ab work and stretching routines. Due to their thickness and the compressed foam, they’re also perfect for jumping activities such as burpees or jump lunges.

These mats provide perfect support and cushioning for your customers, ensuring they don’t suffer injuries as a result of high impact work on their joints.

You can order these in bulk, and we offer discounts on the cost per mat when you buy more in one go. If you’re interested in these mats but don’t want them in grey or black, contact us, and we may be able to sort you out with a custom colour.

Tatami Mats

Our premium Tatami mats are also made with compressed foam, but they have a special Tatami finish. This finish isn’t smooth like vinyl, it includes multiple mini bumps and grooves to provide extra traction. Again, this makes them perfect for mixed martial arts training as well as grappling and wrestling work.

We sell these mats 1m wide, 2m long, and 40mm thick. They’re the perfect size for individual use, making them ideal for a free section in your gym. The extra grip provided by the Tatami finish makes them the perfect stretching match. It also keeps traction on the mat even when they’re wet with sweat. So, your customers can finish up on the treadmill and stretch on the mat without worrying about slipping and pulling any muscles.

While the extra grip might be their standout feature, these mats can also absorb high impacts. They can easily handle a couple of kettlebells or medicine balls falling on them without being damaged.

Much like the MMA mats, these mats are available in black/grey, but custom colours are available by special order.

Buying Quality Mats For Your Gym

It’s crucial that you buy quality mats for your gym or training area. When you have clients that like to practice MMA or wrestling moves, they need a safe surface to train on. All three of these mats provide suitable protection and cushioning for high impact activities. This keeps your clients safe and ensures there are no injuries in your gym.

Similarly, our premium mats help you protect your property. If you don’t have a high-quality mat in your weights section, you run the risk of damaging the floor and your weights. This can lead to costly repairs, which you simply don’t need to pay for. Instead, buy our mats, and they will safely handle any weights dropping without causing damage to anything.
