This mat is ideal for all types of groundwork and also for areas in which safety is required, including childcare centres, and has been tested to a critical fall height of 1.3m and to all European and American standards. The SMAI Octagon Mats will allow you to create angles and shapes on your floor. Create distinct fight areas in diagonal shapes, lines, octagons & more!
The Tatami finish is non-abrasive, ensuring it is ideal for all ground work.
The reversible feature allows for individual colour combinations to be easily changed by simply flipping a mat on the spot.
Shore A hardness is used as a measure of hardness in polymers, elastomers and rubbers.
Mats with a shore rating below 50 are too soft for combat and stand-up training. Their low shore rating and softness means that the jigsaw teeth are more likely to tear and break, making them a poor choice if you want a long-lasting and durable option.
All SMAI mats have a shore rating of between 50 - 55 degrees this means that they are perfectly balanced between safety and durability, as all things should be. Mats in this range are more durable than softer mats (below 50) and are safer than the harder mats (above 55).
A shore rating of 55 and above are too hard for safe combat training. Their hardness reduces impact absorption and increases the likelihood of injury
This mat is fully reversible, meaning that if you wish to flip a mat over you do not need to flip the entire matted area over as well.
Please note that this mat will only work with the SMAI 30mm mats, which are reversible in colour and will not fit with other brands.
If you wish to clean mats prior to use, we recommend you use warm water and a damp mop/cloth using a PH neutral disinfectant.
IMPORTANT: note that EVA mats may shrink and expand over time so if you are thinking of adding this to mats which are over 6 months old check the sizing of your existing mats for distortion prior to ordering - as mats that have expanded may no longer be exactly compatible and may cause gaps or spacing to occur between connections.
Product note: all EVA mats are subject to contraction and expansion in extreme temperatures. For example, in tropical areas, and in warehouses that are prone to overheating. To minimize the degree of variance in such conditions, we recommend choosing the 3cm or 4cm mats.
There is a protective coating used for transportation and storage purposes on our EVA mats. This will not affect the quality of the mats, rather prevent any issues during the time period it is held. This will dissipate over time however, we recommend if you wish to clean mats prior to use, to please use warm water and a damp mop/cloth using a PH neutral disinfectant.
"When considering flooring for our training facility, we look for quality products for our valued members. We look for comfort, safety and ease of movements. These mats from SMAI are fantastic, because they are non-absorbent, chemical resistant and easy to clean. The 3cm impact-absorbing foam material is soft, thick and are great for our students to safely learn their tricks. It's perfect for our us to work on extreme martial arts and tricking, because they are not too soft that you don't get a strong take-off, yet not too hard that a wrong landing can cause injury. Highly recommended!"
