ideal beam mats

The best I’ve ever seen is the matting at the Christchurch School of Gymnastics in New Zealand.

I was there for installation, custom fit carpeted mats held tightly together with wide Velcro. It was done by a local mat maker who took pride in producing equipment at a far lower price than the major companies, but of superior quality.

Even so, this was an expensive project. But worth the cost, we felt.

A lot of minor, dumb injuries occur due to irregular beam mats.

The only downside to this set-up is that there is no way to change the position of the beams. They are locked in.
