Welcome mats and entry doormatsWe finally got some much needed rain here in Los Angeles!  I noticed that our office building, as well as other stores that I go to, started putting out their new water absorbing entry mats.  No one wants to see there customers sliding around and nice entrance mats can really improve the appeal of a store, office building or your home.  I have been to locations that have old office floor mats that you basically slip over after a couple people walk on them.  

Beautify your home with our wide selection of economical welcome mats and entry doormats.  Certain states that get more rain and snow need floor mats that can really absorb and hold in water. has a very large selection of entrance door mats that can handle areas that have little traffic to heavier duty mats that can really soak in and hold the water in the mat.  These mats are also easy to clean and maintain.

One of our more heavy duty mats, called the Sponge mat, can hold up to 1.5 gallons of water per square yard!  It also has rubber grippers on the underside to minimize slippage.  No matter what look, style or size you may need will have it!  We can even customize mats to fit your area.  So when you’re ready to improve the look and keep people from tacking water, dirt and snow all over the place, take a look at our large selection of commercial outdoor entrance mats.

Recycled Rubber Flooring – Eco Friendly Products

Posted on: September 25th, 2012 by

Rubber Gym FlooringConsumers and manufacturers alike are doing more and more to help preserve our environment by producing and purchasing eco friendly products.  To be able to recycle products that would otherwise end up in a dump buried under our  soil is fantastic.  Additionally, manufacturers are using raw materials that are naturally grown on our own soil.  Some companies, like, go as far as to plant trees when certain products are purchased.

I recently went to the production facility that is used to break down used tires to make different products.  The process is extensive, but well worth it.  Our playground surfacing, gym flooring in fitness centers, doggy daycare flooring and much more are using these recycled rubber products.  You probably don’t know this, but when you go into your local gym you are standing on recycled car tires.  It’s amazing what we can with a tire which used to be thrown away in dumps.

Mats For Climbing Walls

Posted on: September 18th, 2012 by

Mats For Climbing WallsI have been getting a lot of requests from various people and companies regarding what type of mat to put under their climbing walls.  Some people know what they want, but most don’t.  I have a couple customers that own athletic facilities with climbing walls. We have worked close together to figure out the best thicknesses, sizes and foam types to use. Basically we are customizing climbing wall mats that were previously created for other purposes.

A good example is our stunt mats which come in three different thicknesses and multiple sizes. We have altered multiple things from the sizes to the types of foam and placement of them.  Sometimes, you may want a stiffer foam on top and softer on the bottom, or the same stiffness all the way through.  What’s great is we have the capabilities to do that.

We can create mats for climbing walls in various sizes, thicknesses, colors, etc.  We can create mats that are suitable for gyms, clubs, parties or home use.  Quite often custom mats are not necessary and our stock mats will work just fine for your needs.  It is still a learning process where we can work and help the customer to decide what may work for them, but in the end we also can’t guarantee that they won’t hurt themselves.  We can just go off recommendations from previous customers that have created custom mats and customers that know exactly what they want.

Exercise Flooring – What to Choose?

Posted on: September 7th, 2012 by

Interlocking Rubber Floor TilesMany people don’t know exactly what flooring to put down in their exercise rooms. That’s because of the large selection and different materials that are available today.  When doing cardio exercises our EVA foam tiles are very popular.  They protect you joints as well as your floor.  Mainly used without heavy equipment on them.  They come in different thicknesses from 1/2″ to 1″ depending on the exercises and stature of the person.

When it comes to a room that is being used to put in equipment and have more of a gym feel the Tuff-n-Easy interlocking rubber floor tiles are my favorite.  They are composed of  rubber made from recycled tires that would otherwise be headed to the dump. They are also made here in the USA.  They are extremely durable and when connected look like seamless rubber flooring.

Than we have our newer tiles that are made for a combination of cardio and it’s okay to have equipment set on them.  Our soft rubber flooring has a denser foam with a layer of recycled rubber on top. These tiles are taking becoming one of the most popular picks.  This is because they have help keep the stress away from the impact of cardio and can withstand the weight of most any exercise equipment.

If you’re still not totally sure what is best for you just call or email us.  We have a dedicated sales and customer service team that is very knowledgeable in all the exercise flooring we sell.  We can tell you what’s worked best for people in the past as we have great customers that give us feedback on how the tiles have worked for them or have friends who want the same product.

Home Door Mats

The Cleanscrape Welcome Iron Front Door Mats in Coffee ColorI just moved into a new home and feel very lucky that I work for a company that sells, among other things, home door mats.  We needed a front door mat and also a mat for the back door.  I forgot how important these mats were until I noticed how much dirt was being tracked inside our new house.  I thought about going to Costco or something to get a mat, but I didn’t want to settle on just anything, so I spent some time to look through the huge selection of entrance mats we have at 

Cleanscrape home door mats - Celtic Lattice in CoffeeI decided to go off a customers recommendation whom I had recently spoken to.  She bought a couple different patterns of our CleanScrape Mats.  She had a friend that had bought our mats and they told her how excellent they were holding up.  So I sat down and picked out a couple different CleanScrape styles and sizes I liked.  I received them at my house about a week ago… delivered to my “front door.”  They look awesome.  Being in our early 30′s we play all kinds of sports and get plenty dirty.  We got the Celtic Lattice mat for our back door so any water can drain all the way through as it is not a covered area.  For the front we purchased the Welcome Iron mat.  We were able to get them in matching coffee colors.

People have different tastes (styles, colors, etc.) and different needs (sizes, quantities, etc.), but whatever your needs are I’m sure will have what your looking for… and if not, they can always make custom door mats (custom sizes or custom logo door mats) to fit your needs.  So, whether you’re moving into a new house or apartment – like me – or just need to replace your existing door mats, it might behove you to check out the selection of mats offered by  They also offer a huge selection of quality commercial and industrial mats for the workplace, so keep that in mind too!

Rolled Rubber Flooring - Doggy Daycare FlooringThere are several dog flooring options, but lately everyone in the dog day care business and dog agility world seem to be turning to the rolled rubber flooring as their preferred choice of flooring.  It has been something of a revolution in the business. The material is easy to roll out and install.  When used with the sealant it is impenetrable to water.  It provides cushioning for the dogs paws and I have not had a single complaint about scratches.  In short, rolled rubber makes wonderful doggy daycare flooring.

So, if you are in the market for doggy daycare flooring, agility flooring, rubber gym flooring or any other place that might benefit from this eco-friendly, durable, versitale product you’re welcome for the news flash.

Gymnastics – One of the Best Sports

Posted on: August 21st, 2012 by

Smarter Spotter In PinkWith the Olympics over and the girls gymnastics team dominating the sport we have had a lot of parents calling to ask for tumbling mats and gymnastics equipment for home that can be used for practicing different moves. It’s kind of a start-up kit. You first start with the floor which most everyone orders a gymnastics folding mat, which can be used for different tumbling routines. They are also really easy to store when folded.

From there you add a couple of training aids to help in back & front handsprings as well as more advanced tumbling exercises. One of the hottest items is our Smarter Spotter, something I wish I had when I took classes. It has a great shape to it that really helps learning different exercises while keeping your child more protested. This product is usually used in combination with the folding mat.  Being put on top for even more protection. Our Incline Mats (also known as cheese mats or wedges) work in a similar way. They have been around for a long time and are the favorite of lots of coaches. They also come in a folding style to help in storage.

I think the most important thing about gymnastics is that it helps train your child to have great balance, awareness, strength and versatility. It also lasts throughout there lifetime as I still find that I still have strengths and agility that I learned in gymnastics, especially balance and how to take a fall. Also, it’s a great way to get your child in shape and make some new friends. If you haven’t already, give it a try, in my opinion it’s one of the best sports for children to be involved in.
