Use in Service History
The polypropylene infills used are manufactured by Vebe Floor Coverings in the Netherlands, and have been widely used throughout Europe and many other countries for many years.
Alumat 10 is the ideal choice where a 10mm high profile entrance mat is required in intense wear situations.
It can be fitted into a recessed mat well, or be fitted with our unique ramping option. Our ramping is unlike others, coming preinstalled. This means our mitred corners of ramping if required are perfectly aligned and locked in place. There is no need to drill holes to secure the ramps saving unsightly screw fixings, ill fitting joints and holes and plugs to the floor.
For use over drained matwells and rigid grating
Floor surfaces are to be clean , dry and level to receive the mats. In matwells or recesses created by surrounding tiles, the mat may be placed in position.
For ramped mats on smooth surfaces, Velcro pads can be used to locate in position, or dowel and screw fixing if required may be used by uplifting infill near an edge.
