Pair of mattresses (dimensions 1000 × 600 – height: 150 mm) with double layer internal padding and PVC outer covering with vent eyelets, created to absorb the impact of the barbell drop. These accessories are also known as weightlifting crash mats o landing barbell pads.
In the latest years, the typical weightlifting exercises like the snatch or the press, together with other strength exercises like the deadlift or the Strongman Smash D-Ball lifting, are increasingly playing an important role in athletic conditioning and functional fitness. Along with these exercises, also the “dropping” movement is becoming more widespread (letting the barbell or other tools fall on the ground after having completed the action). Drop Mats can be used with Wooden Step cod.9114.
The barbell drop, or drop snatch, sometimes overused or misused, can cause vibration and noise issues, in particular inside crowded gyms or fitness rooms. For this reason, we have added to our Catalogue the DROP MATS, specially designed to absorb the drop of a barbell or other heavy tools and to limit the vibrations and noise.
Besides the sturdiness of the PVC outer covering, another essential feature of these mats consists of the double-layered internal padding. One layer is composed of high-density EVA, combined with a second layer of medium-density polyurethane foam (10 cms thick). This blend of materials guarantees the best balance between absorbing and rebounding capability, which is generally difficult to obtain, as a load of weight can vary from a few kilograms to hundreds of kilograms.
The Drop Mats can also be used on the Wooden Jerk Plyoblocks or as elevated supports for deadlifting.
