Training on hard surfaces can lead to long term injury, but fortunately, a solution may be at hand. A company called Direct Mats is now offering jigsaw and puzzle mats which it claims can reduce the impact of hard training on the body, helping to prevent injury and ensuring maximum fitness.
Regular training on hard surfaces can lead to impact injuries, bruises and broken bones but with foam mats from Direct Mats, these injuries can be prevented. The main benefit of these jigsaw mats, the company says, is that they allow individuals to train longer and harder than they otherwise could by reducing the impact on the body. The company markets gym mats for high-impact training such as martial arts and tatami, but in practice, these mats are suitable for practically any activity. 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 the company’s foam mats are made from ethyl vinyl acetate, a blend of a rubbery copolymer of ethylene and vinyl acetate, often used in the soles of sports shoes. The company has chosen this material because of its 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.
Direct Mats is one of Australia’s leading supplier of gym mats. It currently supplies safety mats to a range of organisations, including schools, sporting clubs, government training details and commercial gyms. Part of the appeal of the company’s products is that they are amenable to practically any environment. Jigsaw mats, in particular, can be customised to any facility or room, offering a temporary or permanent floor covering to improve safety and boost comfort. The company says that 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, Direct Mats says, compared to other leading brands in the industry.
For other martial arts, the company offers tatami mats. These are appropriate for a range of hand-to-hand fighting sports, including judo, jiu-jitsu, aikido, karate, kung fu and BJJ. These foam mats come in a variety of finishes, depending on the customer’s needs.
Currently, Direct Mats ships to organisations across Australia. Customers are also able to pick up mats direct from the company’s warehouse if they book an appointment in advance.
