Foam sports matting is also commonly used to provide a landing area for indoor climbing activities. The mats can be individually designed to fit with the exact specifications of the surrounding area. Many climbing walls have rather irregular shapes and in order to produce a custom-made landing area it is necessary to use a sophisticated laser measuring device. Once the exact size of the area has been measured the measurements are uploaded to a computer aided design programme and the covers can then be generated. The ideal is that the covers will fit perfectly in to the contours of the wall and can be fitted with the required level of foam density which will largely be dependent upon the high of the wall. An additional safety feature that is designed to further reduce the risk of injury, is to use a strong Velcro to attach large covers which should be placed over the individual modules and then attached to each other.
