How to Design More Inclusive Spaces

Posted by We Sell Mats on

When it comes to inclusive learning and recreation spaces, providing a safe and accessible setting is crucial for the physical and emotional well-being of all participants.


The same properties that make foam floor tiles and gymnastics mats great for exercise – low-impact, slip resistant, sound-dampening – make them great for inclusive spaces, too. See how these versatile products can be utilized to outfit a safe and inclusive learning and recreation space in both commercial and residential settings.


Safety First

Foam flooring tiles and gymnastics mats serve as a resilient cushion, reducing the risk of injuries and providing a comfortable surface for all types of activities. The soft and impact-absorbent nature of these mats ensures that any accidental falls or bumps are less likely to cause harm, promoting a safe learning environment or flex space.


Accessibility and Mobility

Installing foam flooring tiles with a smooth surface facilitates smooth movement for individuals with mobility aids, such as wheelchairs or walkers. These products offer low resistance, allowing users to navigate the space effortlessly and participate in activities without limitations.

Sensory Stimulation

Individuals with sensory processing issues may find loud noises and hard surfaces overwhelming. Foam flooring tiles and gymnastics mats help dampen sound and provide a tactile, non-slip surface that promotes a calming environment.
