As part of their Extreme Series in Europe, Red Bull were embarking on a number of daring stunts, which included, in stage one, an ariel jump over the partially raised Tower Bridge in London by stunt bike rider Robbie Maddison.

The Red Bull team approached Soft Floor UK for a flooring solution for the take off and landing zones on either side of the bridge to be laid on top of the existing roadway. The flooring had to provide both good grip for the high speed run up the raised roadway on the bridge and high density to absorb the impact on landing for the rider to touch down after the leap across the open section of the bridge on the other side.

Tip: Hover over image to zoom in.


With safety being paramount, the rubber roadway would also provide additional protection for the rider should he lose control of the bike and fall. In addition to this, Red Bull required white calibration strips be printed on the mats to indicate the acceleration and breaking zones. The also wanted to print the Red Bull logo on the mats for the rider use to spot his landing.



Soft Floor UK recommended their extremely tough Ultra Mat in black for this project. The Ultra Mat has all the crucial elements of a quality specialist surface, such as good non slip properties, hi density for shock absorbency and providing impact support in heavy and demanding environments. They screen printed both the white calibration guide lines and a 3 metre by 2 metre promotional Red Bull logo in full colour on to the mats. In all, 220 mats were used, which were all assembled and interlocked on location within one hour, and removed in 30 minutes after the end of the event.

Ultra Mats by Soft Floor UK are made from fully tested, high-density EVA foam. They are ideal for events, garages, workshops, warehouses and are available to order online from their website www.softfloor.co.uk

RemPods Choose Soft Floor UK For Reminiscence Rooms

RemPods produce pop-up reminiscence rooms which work by turning any care space into a independent, therapeutic & calming environment. Particularly developed for the care industry, they offer grounding & inner peace for people with dementia. They also help to relieve boredom, work as a meaningful 'fun' activity and most importantly, build better care bonds between staff and their residents, helping to raise care standards.

As part of their growing range of pod environments, RemPods were looking to develop pods themed on dance halls, traditional shops and cafés. For this they needed a wood effect flooring for authenticity. Specifically, they needed a floor which was easy to assemble and store away – in keeping with their pop-up ethos.

With a range of solutions on the market, the company quickly ruled out anything heavy or which required intensive installation. RemPods founder by Richard Ernest said: "We were looking for a flooring that not only looked good but was portable, easy to set-up and maintain." In addition, the floor had to have anti-slip properties and minimise fall impact.


After careful consideration, RemPods chose wood effect interlocking EVA foam floor mats by Soft Floor UK. Richard Ernest said: "The mats were exactly what we were looking for, are of excellent quality and have performed well so far." When asked about the service received from Soft Floor UK, he added: "The staff were extremely knowledgeable and helpful answering questions about our intended use. This gave us the assurance we needed to make the investment."

Soft Floor UK currently produce EVA foam wood effect interlocking floor mats in two finishes, oak and teak. Unlike many mats of this type on the market, Soft Floor UK use more polyethylene, giving the mats extra flexibility, increased tensile strength and longevity. Oak and Teak mats are 50cm square and can be laid quickly and stored easily, and have a strong interlocking design to improve slip-resistance. They are available to buy directly from the Soft Floor UK website: softfloor.co.uk or by calling 01206 390 570.

Soft Floor UK Launch New Quality Seal For EVA Foam Puzzle Mats

UK based EVA foam puzzle mat and flooring producer Soft Floor UK have announced they are to introduce a new quality seal to display on their products to reassure customers that the flooring meets the current quality expectations.

The EVA foam puzzle play mat industry has seen a boom in popularity since the end of 2011 as high-end retailers and individual traders have sought to take advantage of growing demand. However, the origins and quality of puzzle foam play mats have raised concerns, especially in the baby and toddler sectors, where safety is paramount.

Soft Floor UK's founder and Managing Director Walker Brierley stated: “We are concerned that the market is becoming increasingly saturated by imports that are manufactured at extremely low costs using poor quality, inferior materials and untested production methods. "We are sometimes asked by customers what makes our mats different to other, often cheaper, mats on the market.” “We see the quality seal as a way of ensuring customers trust in our superior brand.”



All Soft Floor Uk's EVA foam mats come with a 1-year manufacturers guarantee and are tested independently in the UK by SATRA, the materials testing agency. All EVA foam mats pass the European Toy Safety Standard EN71 Parts 1-3 and relevant toxicity tests.

Soft Floor UK Hold The Floor For Chuckle Chimps Soft Play Hire

Chuckle Chimps is part of a growing industry of self-start party equipment hire businesses. Run by Sarah Osborne and based in Mansfield, Nottinghamshire, Chuckle Chimps is a mobile soft play hire company that provides soft play equipment like ball pools and soft shapes at private children’s parties in hired halls or even homes to enable very young children to play safely.

Party venues can vary considerably, and so can the type of flooring from concrete to parquet, to vinyl and carpet. This presents a challenge to the business and it's aim to provide a safe playing environment. With safety paramount, Chuckle Chimps were keen to find a portable flooring which reinforced the values of the company of being a safe option for parties and protected children from inevitable tumbles whilst playing.

After some meticulous research, Chuckle Chimps chose Classic interlocking mats by Soft Floor UK as they were a good size for ease of quick set up and importantly had a critical fall height of one metre. Business owner Sarah Osborne said: "We were really impressed with the range of colour options available and selected orange and purple Classic tiles to match the Chuckle Chimps brand colours. The finished effect when laid down looks very professional and eye catching!"



Chuckle Chimps ordered an initial quantity of 100 tiles across the two colours – although as the business has since grown rapidly, they have returned a number of times to Soft Floor UK to order more. Sarah added: "We like the fact the tiles are really durable and easy to clean down after each party hire. Also the additional points about the composition of the tiles is a fantastic reassurance to parents who are effectively putting their children’s safety and well being in our hands."

When asked about the service they had received from Soft Floor UK, the response was very positive. "When we first started out we were unsure as to which product we needed for the business. A call to the Soft Floor UK team really helped us understand what the options were and what would suit our needs best. There is so much choice it can be bewildering so I would recommend chatting to the Sales Team."

Classic EVA puzzle mats are 50cm by 50cm and 14mm thick and provide excellent cushioned support and fall protection for hard floors. They can be laid quickly and stored easily, and have a strong interlocking design to improve slip-resistance. The 50cm Classic interlocking jigsaw mats are available directly from the Soft Floor UK website: softfloor.co.uk or by calling 01206 390 570.
