Customers choose Zebra Grappling Mats for their martial arts and fitness facilities of all sizes because they value quality, durability, and trustworthiness. For those who need the ultimate protection from high falls, slams, and throws, the 50 mm thick Zebra Mat is the ideal choice. This mat is firm enough for stand-up martial arts and minimizes or eliminates the need for subflooring.

As a result, these grappling mats are especially popular among professional MMA and combat sports training centres, Jiu-Jitsu academies, and striking arts schools. As well as centres that incorporate grappling into their curriculum and Law Enforcement training centres.

Tatami or Smooth Grappling Mat Surface

The 50 mm thick Zebra Mats are available with either a traditional tatami surface (rice straw textured) or a smooth surface. Both surface options provide secure footing for kicking techniques and help to prevent stumbling or slipping during throwing techniques. However, there are some differences between them.

  • Tatami-surfaced Zebra Mats are denser or slightly firmer than smooth, providing the highest surface grip level and allowing for fast movement. The density of tatami-surfaced Zebra Mats is 240 kg/m³.
  • On the other hand, smooth-surfaced Zebra Mats are less dense or a bit softer than the tatami, while the smooth surface helps prevent mat burns. The density of smooth surface Zebra Mats is 200 kg/m³.

Regardless of thickness, the centre of every Zebra Mat is a 100% recycled, multi-density, open-cell foam held together with a proprietary adhesive process. This allows us to confidently offer a 15-year product life expectancy alongside the Zebra Mats’ 10-year warranty.

Moreover, because the foam is open-cell, it is also completely climate stable – meaning your mats will not expand or contract with temperature changes. Additionally, they reduce noise pollution and act as an insulator to reduce utility costs.

On the exterior, every Zebra Grappling Mat is surfaced and edged with a reinforced, closed-cell vinyl that is internationally certified as phthalate-free. The surface has also received an antimicrobial treatment to help prevent the growth of microorganisms. The corners are hand-finished to ensure a moisture-proof seam and a natural rubber anti-skid surface completes the underside for added stability.

DIY installation

Finally, the installation of Zebra Mats is highly accessible to the DIYer as they require no special tools, chemicals, or adhesives.
