Superior materials and design make Alumat 10 W the best choice for intense wear entrance matting. Similar to the 10 I, the 10W has wider infills and a heavier duty frame. Made from exterior grade magnesium alloy and anodised it is made to last and stay looking good. Infills, manufactured by Vebe in the Hetherlands, do not shrink back and come in a range of colours. The infills not only absorb moisture from footwear, but are ribbed to assist dirt removal. Solid construction with the entire base rubber lined with no air cavities ensure a 'clatter-free' operation on level surfaces.
An alternative, Alumat10 WD is a variation of this mat with the inclusion of water drain channels.

Use in Service History
Infill materials manufactured by Vebe, Netherlands have been in use for heavy duty entrances for many years in Europe and Worldwide.
Alumat AL10 HDW is an ideal choice where a 10mm high profile entrance mat is required in intense wear situation with wider than normal profiles. 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.
Maintenance instructions available on our web site, or on request.
Alumat mats are all guaranteed for a minimum of 5 years.This applies for both infills and aluminium bases,
Alumat10 W and 10WD have an extended frame warranty of 10 years, where frames are warranted to be refurbishable with new infills, provided the mat was correctly installed and maintained as per instructions. While infills too are exceptionally hard wearing, to keep entrances looking at their best, replacement of infills is possible and recommended after 5 to 10 years of use although they will continue to wear and perform beyond that time.
All of the products used are manufactured by companies that have demonstrated their commitment to the environment and have been appropriately certified.We have selected aluminium that is designed to withstand wet conditions and can be reused after refurbishment if in suitable condition.
HD frames have warranties that they will be refurbishable for extended periods, provided they have been correctly installed and maintained.
