Rollout Mats


Why Roll Out Mats?

1. Ease of Installation and Transportation:

Roll out mats are known for their portability and easy installation. As the name suggests, you simply roll them out on the desired floor area, and you’re set. This feature is especially useful for events, seminars, or temporary training spaces where a quick setup is needed. Judo mats and EVA jigsaw mats, on the other hand, can be cumbersome. Judo mats are generally heavier and require more effort to set up, while EVA jigsaw mats involve piecing together individual tiles, which can be time-consuming. You most likely will require a trolley for storage and or transport which adds to the expense.

2. Uniform Surface:

A seamless surface is a significant advantage. Roll out mats provide a continuous, smooth area without gaps or edges. This uniformity can be vital for preventing accidents or injuries, as there’s no risk of toes or fingers getting caught in the crevices as can sometimes happen with jigsaw mats.

3. Storage Flexibility:

When not in use, roll out mats can be easily rolled up and stored vertically, taking up minimal space. This is an asset for gyms or facilities that might need to free up floor space for other activities. EVA jigsaw mats, although stackable, can still consume considerable storage space, while traditional Judo mats are bulky and harder to store efficiently.

4. Versatility:

Roll out mats are not limited to a specific martial art or sport. They are versatile and can accommodate various activities, from yoga to MMA, to wrestling and more. Traditional Judo mats, as the name suggests, are optimized for Judo, which involves many throws and falls, and might not be suitable for all combat sports. EVA jigsaw mats, though versatile, might not offer the same level of shock absorption as roll out mats, making them less suitable for high-impact activities.

5. Maintenance and Cleaning:

Due to their smooth, continuous surface, roll out mats are easier to clean and maintain. There are no gaps or crevices for dirt or sweat to accumulate. This means less time spent on cleaning and a more hygienic environment for practitioners. On the other hand, EVA jigsaw mats have interlocking edges where grime can accumulate, making thorough cleaning more challenging. Judo mats, with their textured surfaces, might also require more meticulous cleaning.

6. Durability and Lifespan:

Modern roll out mats are constructed using high-quality materials that are designed to withstand heavy use and impacts. They often come with a vinyl surface layer that’s both durable and resistant to wear and tear. Judo mats, although robust, can wear out over time, especially with constant impacts from throws. EVA jigsaw mats, being softer, might not handle long-term heavy usage as well.

7. Customization and Aesthetics:

Roll out mats often come in a range of colors and can sometimes even be customized with logos or branding. This is a boon for schools, gyms, or event organizers who want to promote their brand or create a personalized aesthetic. Judo mats usually come in standard colors, and while EVA jigsaw mats offer color options, they might not provide the same level of branding opportunities.


While each type of mat has its own set of advantages tailored to specific needs, roll out mats stand out due to their versatility, ease of use, and maintenance. Whether you’re setting up a permanent training space or need a temporary setup, roll out mats offer a blend of convenience, safety, and durability that’s hard to match. However, the ultimate choice should always consider the specific requirements and budget constraints of the user.

Side Note: The surface of the roll out mats can vary widely from smooth (low burn), mid range low profile grip (versatile) to high grip (high burn) and even carpet top for gymnastics. Not Sure? Need a Free Sample? Why not message us below?
