We make custom made bouldering wall landing areas to any shape and size in a number of different densities. 

Everything is made in house at our workshop, we have been making matting now for 24 YEARS and we are the leaders in climbing/bouldering specific matting, that is designed specifically for feet first landing.

Our matting is made up of a sandwich of two densities of foam, made up of a super dense firm top layer, which makes it easier to walk on and prevents ankle roll. Which is bonded to a super impact absorbing base layer. Having this extra layer prolongs the life of your matting.   This has been carefully selected for its impact absorption and resilience for repeated use over the past 17 years of developing our product. A lot of our competitors do not add this layer, which is why they appear cheaper. We know what happens to the structure of foam over a prolonged period of time. The top 100mm layer takes a lot of the impact, this breaks down the cell structure in the foam, making it go soft. Our bonded top layer stays firm, giving you a flat landing zone each time, unlike bare foam, which tends to grab your feet and causes ankle injuries.

We were the first company to introduce the carpet-topped matting system. Our system gives you one uniform finish with no gap or unsightly joining bandages on top that are a trip hazard. The advantages of adding carpet is it is a lot easier to keep clean, you do is vac it, it keeps chalk pollution down in your centre.


Our carpet is available in 7 colours. We have a wide range of colours for the PVC covers

The matting is delivered in modular blocks that have PVC covers on them. They are joined together with webbing reinforced PVC backed velcro strips that neatly cover the joins between the mats. giving a flat and even landing surface. The carpet is then laid in the opposite direction to the mat joins making it a super strong landing area that we know works, as we have fitted and tested it on more climbing centres than another manufacturer.

Everything is made off site and installed in a day.

Hanging matting

Our hanging mats are the perfect solution for climbing walls built in sports halls.  The mats are fixed to the wall when the climbing wall is not in use, giving the wall a protective cover if people run into it during 5 a side football.

These can be made in any of the above colours.
