Welcome to our guide on how to set up your air track mat for the first time. If you’re new to air track mats, then this guide is for you. If you are an experienced tumbler, then we hope you find it helpful and informative.
Take out your air track mat from storage and unroll it
To get started, take out your air track mat from storage and unroll it. If it comes in a box, remove it from the packaging and check that everything is included and there’s no damage to the product.
Set up the pump
Next, plug your inflator into an electric socket. It’s important that you should use an inflator specifically designed for inflatable products to ensure that the pressure is sufficient enough to inflate the air track mat quickly and effectively without over-inflating or damaging the product. You can find high quality electric inflators with mats if you need one. Once plugged in, turn your inflator on and allow it to heat up; this usually takes around three minutes.
Place the end of the inflator hose into one of the inflation valves at either end of your air track mat, which are located on either side of each handle.
Once inflated, use a tape measure or ruler to check that your mat has reached the desired width and length as stated in its product specifications. If not, adjust
Take away any debris or dirt in the area that you are about to set up your inflatable gym mat
When it comes to setting up your air track mat at home, you need to take your time and make sure that everything is in order.
Take away any debris or dirt in the area that you are about to set up your inflatable gym mat. If you are using a hard surface, make sure it is clean and dry. You can use a damp cloth to wipe away any dirt, dust or grease to make the surface spotless.
If you want your air track mat to last longer, make sure that you unpack it properly before inflating it. The most important thing to keep in mind is that it should be unrolled on a soft surface like grass for example, rather than a hard concrete floor or pavement. This will help protect the material from punctures and other damage as well as help speed up the inflation process by allowing air to flow through more easily into the mat’s chambers when inflating.
Set up the electric / battery powered pump and let it run until the mat is completely inflated
Using the electric pump is the easiest and fastest way to inflate your gymnastic air track mat. It will take you about 3-5 minutes to fully inflate your mat.
Each of our pumps comes with an Australian power cord, as well as a US/EU adapter. To inflate your mat, simply connect it to a power outlet using the correct adapter and let it run until no more air is coming out of the floor.
Once you have finished using your air track you can easily deflate it using the two small deflation valves on each side of the track. Simply open them and fold the mat back up into its storage bag.
After the air track mat has been fully inflated, roll up the excess
After the air track mat has been fully inflated, roll up the excess edges so they are firmly rolled and attached together by velcro. As you may have seen in some videos online, this will help to prevent air from escaping and also makes it easier to carry around. You can also use the velcro straps to attach multiple air tracks together.
Like most inflatable products, an air track is designed to be used indoors and on a flat surface. If you are planning on using it outdoors, make sure that you stake down the edges with sandbags or something similar to prevent it from moving when in use.
Your inflatable gym mat is now ready to use!
Inflating your inflatable gym mat is the first of many times you’ll use your air pump. It’s a good idea to make sure everything is working correctly and you’re comfortable with the process before you go ahead and start using the mat.
The first thing you should do is check that all valves are closed, then connect your pump to the main valve. Open the main valve and start inflating until it’s 80% full. At this point, close the main valve, disconnect the pump and open any secondary valves. You can now finish topping up your mat by hand until it’s completely full.
Your inflatable gym mat is now ready to use! If you ever feel like you need more air, just use your pump again to top it up.
Kameymall Air Track Mat is super easy to set up and take down. In fact, when I was setting up my mat at first, I was amazed at how easy it was! There are no air leaks so you will not have to worry about coming back a day or two later to fill up your mat. Once you set the mat up the right way, it will be good for good. The mat isn’t that well insulated, so during the winter months it might be a bit difficult to roll up and move without careful treatment. That being said, you’re always going to need some mats for gymnastics practice too! Overall, Gymnastic Air Track Mats is definitely one of the best choices that you can make for gymnastics practice.
