One thing that is common in all boxing rings is the ubiquitous boxer and everything else the boxer needs to compete in the sports or train. Boxing ring canvases are common in boxing rings. These are durable, easy to clean and manage vinyl or similar synthetic materials. Boxing rings see a lot of action and often get soiled with boxer dripping sweat, water and sometimes blood on the floor of the ring. Continued soiling of the floor can convert the ring floor into a Petri dish of harmful germs. To prevent the boxing ring floor from becoming dirty, professional boxers prefer covering the floors with industry approved boxing ring canvas.
The Problems of Placing Mats and Covers
The sport of boxing requires the boxer to be alert and agile constantly moving all over the ring, with an eye always on the opponent’s moves. As such, the boxer cannot be distracted with the issue of a slippery floor underneath. Traditional mats and floor covers are notorious for being slippery, which can become a potential safety hazard for the boxer; therefore, we do not recommend the use of cheap covers.
Another issue that a boxer might have to handle with low quality risks of tearing open the cover with their sharp grip boxing boots. Boxing boots are made to provide good stability and grip on the surface and to that end; boxing boot makers install sharp parts under the sole of the boot. When the boxer juggles around the ring he turns and twists with amazing alacrity and speed, which can be too much for a low quality, cheap ring canvas to withstand. Ruptures might occur on the surface and pose tripping hazards for the sportsmen.
The third and final problem with laying mat covers on the ring floor is that these do not drain easily. Meaning, it will take time for all the sweat, water and blood to clean off the surface entirely. That would mean a time gap of about 10 to 15 minutes between every match.
How High Quality Professional Grade Boxing Ring Canvas Solves the Problem
A good quality canvas solves all these problems in one sweep. First, these use high grade synthetic materials like vinyl as the construction material. So there are no risks of boxers breaking open the surface with their sharp soled boots. Second, custom canvas covers are sold with rivets and fastening hooks which can be used to pin the cover down in place, providing complete safety to the players sparing on it. Lastly, vinyl is good at expelling liquid very efficiently, thereby keeping the playing surface ever ready for action.
The application of Boxing ring canvases are not just limited to within the ring, it can be used on any surface to create makeshift boxing rings. However care must be taken that the surface is adequately cushioned to protect the players from receiving fall related injuries.
