Scope of use
Suitable for busy commercial entrance ways, including schools,
shopping centres, offices etc. Draining capability enables use both inside and outside, in weather exposed situations.
Mat design compliments flush threshold drainage systems where entrance mats also need to drain to the outside drain, or from single drain outlets located under the mat, in the mat well.
The mat allows water to be channeled above the mat and discharged to a single drain channel, enabling a simple water discharge system to be made.
Reduced water demands may just require the drain channels to act as evaporation containment to improve performance of typical 'closed construction' mats.
Ideal for use where water entry to buildings is a concern.
Can be made any size and shape.

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 15D should be fitted in a mat well 17mm to 20mm deep.
It is fully rubber backed to give good support and comfort, but must be installed over a hard level surface.
Can be installed inside or weather exposed situations outside if required.
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.
