Pair of mattresses (dimensions 1000×600 h150 mm) with double layer internal padding and PVC covering with vent eyelets, realized to absorb the barbell drop.
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 more and more playing an important role in athletic conditioning and functional fitness. Together with these exercises, also the “dropping” is spreading, i.e. letting the barbell (or other tools) fall on the ground after having completed the exercise.
This practice, sometimes overused or misused, can cause vibration and noise issues, in particular when this happens inside crowded gyms or fitness rooms. For this reason, we have added to our Catalogue the DROP MATS, also called weightlifting crash mats or landing barbell pad, specially designed to absorb the drop of a barbell or of other heavy tools and to limit the vibrations and noise.
Besides the sturdiness of the PVC covering, the main feature of these mats consists in the double layered internal padding: one layer is composed of high-density EVA, which is combined with a second layer in medium-density polyurethane foam (10 cm thick). This composition guarantees the best balance between absorbing and rebounding capability, which is generally difficult to obtain, as the load of weight can vary from few kilograms to hundreds of kilograms.
The Drop Mats can also be used on the Wooden Jerk Plyoblocks, or as elevated supports for deadlifting.
