Regarding transferring color to other surfaces- I plan on using this as a workout mat on beige-color carpet. Will the black rubber cause discoloration to the carpet as I jump on it?
Anonymous
There is no guarantee that our 3/4" Extreme Mats will or will not stain your light colored carpet, but there is always that potential. To prevent this, we recommend placing a plastic sheet between the mat and the carpet to keep the mat from potentially staining the carpet.
Is any prep required to lay these mats down on my garage floor? I wanted to create a 12' square.
todd
The only prep you will need to do before installing our Extreme Mats is to make sure the subfloor is clean and free of any large dirt or debris. You will also want to make sure your subfloor is flat as well, so if you do have any major divots or pits, you may want to fill them before installing the mats.
When using this type of mat to squat, will the mat give from the weight, or does it remain firm thereby providing a stable surface to safely squat? Can you park a car on top of this mat when used in a gym garage?
Dwayne Heard
Our 3/4" 4' x 6' Extreme Mats are very dense and would not depress when doing a squat or any other exercise on them. You can park a car over these rubber mats without it affecting the mats at all. The only thing that will affect these rubber mats is oil from your car. If oil were to fall on these mats, over time, the mats can start to flake due to the oil breaking down the binder in the flooring. If your car does leak, we recommend placing one of our Nitro Rolls or an AutoFloorGuard Containment Mat in the area where you park your vehicle.
Do these meet emit harmful chemicals such as formaldehyde?
Sunny
Our 3/4" Extreme Mats do no off-gas any harmful chemicals such as formaldehyde. If you would like the MSDS for these mats, please feel free to reach out to one of our Flooring Heroes via phone, chat, or email.

Anonymous
Our 3/4" Extreme Mats can transfer color to light colored surfaces and your hands when handled.

Adi

Could you use these mats as a patio? Put them on the grass and put table and chairs on them?
Jean
These mats are not UV stable and may fade over time from direct sunlight.
Does your 3/4" 4'x6' Extreme Mats contain toxic phthalates?
Anthony Thompson

Ali

What is the heaviest amount of weight that can be dropped on these mats without damaging the floor below? I would be putting them on top of a solid slab of concrete.
Kiel Higgins
We haven't tested out what the maximum weight that could be dropped on our 4' x 6' Extreme Mats, but we can assure that you can drop pretty much any weight dumbbell or kettlebell on our mats and it would not damage the floor underneath doing normal exercises. These rubber mats are our most popular mats for Cross Fit gyms, so if it works well for them with all of the weighted activities they do, then these mats will be perfect for any install anywhere.
If I cover my garage floor with these mats, will they tolerate hot tires in the summer?
ALB
You can drive over our Extreme mats. These mats will not be affected by hot tires in the middle of summer. The only issue you may run into is if your car leaks oil. If that oil gets on the mats, over time, it can degrade the mat, meaning you will need to replace. If you do have this issue, we recommend placing our Nitro Rolls or one of the Auto Floor Guard mats in the area where you park your vehicle.
Can I use it as an underlayment under my carpet? I need something strong to remove the floor step noise and vibration from the upstairs floor?
shiva kavosi
You can use our Extreme Mats as an underlayment under carpet. These mats are very thick and are very shock absorbent helping to reduce noise transfer between floors.

Our Extreme Mats are approx. 48" x 72". As they are not trued to size, there is potential for the mats to be a little larger or smaller than this size.

Can these mats be used in a walk-in freezer? They would have four-leg shelving units on them with heavy frozen food items.
Ben Lawson
Our Extreme Mats can be used as flooring in a walk-in freezer. These mats are very durable and will be able to withstand the weight of heavy shelving units. Since these mats are made from rubber, they are very slip resistant even when wet and are very easy to clean and maintain. They are also mold and mildew resistant and can be sealed to create a non-porous surface that can be easily sanitized.
Can this material be cleaned with bleach or other types of disinfectants?
You can clean our Extreme Mats with bleach and other disinfectants. When cleaning with bleach or other harsh chemicals, we recommend diluting the solvent as much as possible not to affect the flooring surface.

Our 3/4" 4' x 6' Extreme Mats were designed to be used outdoors, so they have a very high VOC count.

Melissa

What's the difference between this mat and the Shock Mat?
Sylvia
The main difference between our Extreme Mats and our Shock Mats is that the Shock Mats are a vulcanized rubber mat. If you are looking for a mat that is easy to clean, sanitize, and is super shock absorbent, then our Shock Mats are the mat for you. If you are looking to do high-impact workouts and are looking for a mat that can be stored easily, then we would recommend our Extreme Mats. Both are very durable and are great for a wide range of exercises.
How much do the 4'x6' extreme mats weigh?
Donna
Our Extreme Mats weigh approximately 96 pounds.
Will the 3/4" Extreme Mat reduce generator noise? Can the mat be ordered in smaller sizes?
Jack
Our Extreme Mats will reduce vibration noise created by a generator. It won't eliminate it, but it will reduce it. Currently, our Extreme Mats are only available in a 4' x 6' mat. If you would like to make the mat a smaller size, you definitely can. All you would need is a sharp utility knife and a straight edge. You will have to score the mat a few times to get through the mat, but it can be done quite easily.
I am looking to place 2 - 3/4" 4' x 6' Extreme Mats together to create an 8' x 12' area on top of medium pile builder-grade carpeting. Weight bench w/free weights & dumbells on top. Will this work, and what would you recommend to keep both mats close together?
Kurt
You can install our Extreme Mats over low pile commercial carpet with ease. If you like to connect these mats together, you can add some double-sided tape under the mats at the seam, or you can use mat tape on the surface of the mats at the seam, or you can use our Seam Sealer glue to connect them together.
Are these mats porous? Or non-porous?
Mike
Our 3/4" 4' x 6' Extreme Mats are semi-porous. Any liquid that falls onto the mat, if not cleaned up right away, will eventually start to absorb into the mat. If there are any salts or other small particulates in the water, then these will get stuck in the pores in the mat. They will be practically impossible to remove. We do offer our Rubber Floor Finish and Sealer that can be used to make your floor non-porous. This sealer is recommended in gyms and doggy daycares.
I want to use the mat in a home gym, and the floor underneath is finished hardwood. Will the mat damage the hardwood floor finish?
Our Extreme Mats will not damage hardwood flooring when placed over it, but if you are concerned that it might, we recommend placing a plastic sheet between the mat and the hardwood flooring. This will ensure that the rubber flooring won't stain the hardwood flooring.
What is the difference between your "3/4" 4' x 6' Extreme Mats" and your "4' x 6' Premium Mats"? I want to just lay these in my garage for home exercise and moderate weight lifting.
Chris
There are a few differences between these two mats. First, the obvious difference is the thickness. Our Premium mats come in either an 8mm thickness or a 3/8" thickness. Our Premium Mats are vulcanized, which means they are non-porous, whereas our Extreme Mats are not. Our Extreme mats are not finished on the bottom and are not trued as well. This means, if you are installing these mats as a full floor, you will want to make sure that you install them in a brick pattern to minimize the imperfections of the flooring. Both are great for moderate weight lifting and will help protect your subfloor. Even though our Premium Mats are thinner, they are still just as durable or more durable due to the fact that they are vulcanized.
Is a sealant needed at junction points?
You do not have to seal the seams when placing multiple 4' x 6' Extreme Mats together. You can, but it is not required. Typically people will use our seam sealer glue to create a water-tight surface or to help keep mats together.
What advantage do the 3/4 inch (Extreme) have over the 1/2 inch (Mega)? In other words, what does that extra 1/4 inch of thickness get you?
Really there isn't an advantage of going with the 3/4" Extreme Mats over our 1/2" Mega Mats. They both have been designed for dropping heavy weights and are very shock absorbent. The only time we would highly suggest someone going with the 3/4" over the 1/2" is if they have plywood subfloor and if they are on a second floor. That extra bit of material helps to absorb more of the shock when dropping weight better, protecting your subfloor and also deadening more of the sound. If you have a concrete subfloor and are on the first floor, the 1/2" Mega Mats are plenty.
Are these mats fire resistant?
david frederick
Our Extreme Mats are made from recycled rubber and have a Fire Class rating of 3, which is the lowest class. Essentially this means that if a fire were to occur that these mats will burn.
I’d like to use this on a brick patio or grass lawn to work out. Are there any disadvantages to doing that with this mat? How do you think it will perform in terms of sturdiness and comfort? Is it made in the USA?
Diane

These mats are made of rubber and are very slip resistant and are more slip-resistant when wet. They are able to withstand the elements just fine and are resistant to mold and mildew growth. These mats are perfect for high impact workouts as they have a little give to them compared to some of our vulcanized mats. These mats are also very durable and sturdy and are made here in the USA.
What is the difference between Extreme Mats and Mega Mats?
The only difference between our Extreme Mats and our Mega Mats is the thickness. The Extreme Mats are 3/4" thick, whereas the Mega Mats are an 1/2" thick.

Lauren Pruitt
