ArmaSport mats now also available in elegant black

Premiere at the MEDICA: ArmaSport fitness and gymnastics mats are now also available in black. Armacell has added this ever-fashionable colour to its range of professional sports mats. Black, in par¬ticular, stands for timeless elegance and goes excellently with any other colour. ArmaSport mats are free of phthalate plasticizers and ideal for training purposes - whether in physiotherapy practices, in fitness stu¬dios or at home.

There is no reason why anyone should be in a black mood after exercising on the new ArmaSport fitness mats. ArmaSport is always an excellent choice from a health point of view. Because, unlike many products on the market, ArmaSport mats are manufactured without using phthalate plasticizers, which are suspected of damag¬ing the liver, kidneys and reproductive organs. Instead, to maintain the elasticity of the foam, Armacell uses a completely harmless substance which was developed espe¬cially for use in children’s toys, food packaging and medical products. Furthermore, ArmaSport mats are manufactured without adding latex and are therefore also suitable for those who are allergic or sensitive to latex. By choosing ArmaSport, exercisers are also playing it safe as far as the Sanitized treatment is concerned: the antimicrobial treatment is free of triclosan.

When developing the ArmaSport mats, highest priority was given to health aspects. ArmaSport mats guarantee optimal shock absorption and the stability needed for a firm footing even during the most intensive training. The closed-cell elastomeric foam has outstanding energy absorption behaviour and excellent point-elasticity. This means that when it comes to absorbing the energy expended while exercising, the ArmaSport mats are easier on the body than conventional fitness mats. All ArmaSport mats have been tested according to DIN EN 12503 and are therefore particularly suitable for professional use – in physiotherapy practices, fitness studios, schools and even competi¬tions.

The new black ArmaSport mats are available in a thickness of 15 mm in the dimensions 120 x 60, 140 x 60, 180 x 60 und 180 x 80 cm, and as 25 mm thick mats measuring 200 x 100 cm. The ArmaSport products are sold through specialist sports, school and rehabilitation shops.
