Pre-sized Fall Mats

SmartCells pre-sized fall protection mats are designed to provide a quick solution or an extra layer of protection to reduce fall injuries in the locations where falls occur most frequently.

These custom mats are created using 3’x3’ SmartCells tiles, which can be configured to any desired shape based on the layout of the play area. The modular design allows the mats to easily be installed over existing flooring and connected together around structures and equipment. ADA compliant transition ramps available.
