Gym Floor Protector Mats
Looking much like exercise or fitness mats, gym floor protector mats are usually made of a dense PVC or woven mesh compound that provides a secure and stable mat on which you place your fitness equipment.
Designed ultimately to protect floors from scratches and dents, there are some useful side benefits to machine mats too.
Why Buy A Protector Mat?
Gym equipment protector mats provide a protective barrier between the equipment and the underlying surface. They help prevent damage or scratches to floors that could be caused by cardio equipment like treadmills or rowing machines. Thid is especially important in home environments where you may have wood floors.
Mats also absorb impact and help to reduce vibration noise whilst providing the easiest way to mop up excess sweat - especially important under indoor cycles.
Safety and Durability
Protector mats will also help with safety issues. They have anti-slip properties, which help prevent equipment like rowers from sliding or shifting during use. This reduces the risk of accidents or injuries caused by unstable equipment.
Additionally, some mats have electrical insulation properties, protecting against electric shocks or static discharge in environments where such risks exist.
Being made from high density rubber or PVC means they will last years if looked after properly. These mats are usually resistant to wear and tear, chemicals or other spills like oil or lubricant (from treadmills for example) ensuring the mats can withstand frequent use and provide long-lasting protection. However, we always recommend you check the cleaning instructions carefully.
