Frequently Asked Questions
Why do you only offer size 6' x 4'?
We wanted to offer a size that is big enough to cover your entire body in every pose, yet not be so big that it becomes a struggle to move around.
After years of testing, the 6' x 4' with 6mm thickness has been a fan favorite because of it's joint support, full-body coverage, and mobility. We are more than stoked to be able to share it with the world!
Can I use a Tiger Mat on carpet, tile, concrete, hardwood floors, etc?
Yes! Tiger Mats can be used on any flat surface to provide comfortable padding, shock absorption, non-slip grip, and high density protection for your joints and floors.
On the bottom of every Tiger Mat is a unique dot pattern that is designed to keep your mat from sliding around while you're using it. The 14lbs weight of our extra large mat helps keep the mat in place too.
However, in some cases with intense workouts and thicker carpets, our mats may need a little more to lock them in place. In this case, our customers have had success with Rug Anchors.
Can I wear shoes on a Tiger Mat?
What are Tiger Mats made out
Tiger Mats are made using the highest quality materials and eco-friendly manufacturing techniques. Tiger Mats are made of premium high density, non-toxic 16P free natural rubber.
Our mats are tested to ensure they have no odor, no smell, no phthalates, no latex, no silicone, and no toxins.
Do Tiger Mats help reduce impact and noise?
Yes, absolutely. Tiger Mats are made of premium, high density natural rubber and are thicker than most exercise and yoga mats.
Our mats will protect your joints and floors by adding extra padding and shock absorption to your jumping, dancing, and cardio exercise routines.
Can I put my treadmill, elliptical, stationary bike, gym equipment, on a Tiger Mat?
Yes, as long as there are no sharp edges, our Premium Large Yoga Mats can be used to provide extra cushion, protect your flooring, and reduce vibrations and noise from your gym and fitness training equipment. Keep in mind, if the equipment is heavy it may leave an imprint on your mat.
How much does a Tiger Mat weigh?
Our popular 6' x 4' x 6mm Tiger Mat weighs 14 lbs.
Can I place two or more Tiger Mats together?
Many customers purchase more than one Tiger Mat to create an even larger area for their home gym or home studio.
Depending on your use and flooring, the weight of the Tiger Mats and the unique dot pattern on the bottom layer of the mats is usually enough to keep the mats together.
However, you may want to secure the mats together another way. In this case, we recommend and our customers have had success with Meister Mat Tape.
How should I clean my Tiger Mat?
For a quick clean after each workout or yoga session, we recommend using our Tiger Mat 100% Microfiber Towel to wipe away any moisture.
When your mat gets to the point where it needs a deeper cleaning, we recommend the following:
- 1. Mix a few drops of non-bleach dish soap in a small bowl of warm water.
- 2. Use a cloth or soft brush to scrub the top surface with the mixture.
- 3. Wipe clean and dry using a towel or hang dry in the sun.
- 4. Make sure your mat is completely dry on both sides before rolling up!
Where should I store my Tiger Mat?
Tiger Mats can be rolled up and secured using the two velcro storage straps that are included with your mat. If you need it out of the way, you can roll it to the side of your room, lean it in a corner, or hide it away in a closet or under your bed.
Why is my Tiger Mat slippery?
Tiger Mats can be a little slippery when they are brand new. We call this the "break in" period and it will definitely get better with use! This is the nature of the ultra-durable top layer of the mat. Also, hopefully you take comfort in knowing that the sweat and moisture isn't absorbing into the mat.
You can speed up the break in period by cleaning the mat with a small amount of mild dish soap and warm water. Or lay it out in a high traffic area for a week or two.
