Coir has been used as a natural matting constituent for over 150 years. We have taken this proven material and applied modern design and manufacturing techniques to produce a matting system for today’s commercial entranceways.
Shoes can carry dirt and grit deep within the grooves of the sole. If your matting system doesn’t effectively remove this, then it’s only doing half the job. Birrus COCAMAT features a stepped profile which gets into those grooves to remove dirt and moisture to protect your internal flooring from avoidable scratching and wear.

Note: Coir floor coverings are not produced in robotic factories.They are the products of agriculture, using natural dyes. Minor irregularities in weave are inherent to these products – they do not affect wear. They are not flaws. Variations in colour are also common – from roll to roll, from sample to roll and even within roll.

Birrus Installation Service Available (more details) [more details links through to installation pages]
Birrus Matting Systems require and internal recess depth of 12mm or 20mm. Standard Birrus matwell frames are fabricated using aluminium alloy, brass and stainless-steel angle for compatibility with our mats.
Place angle in the recess and set angles level with adjoining floor surfaces. Glue in or screw fix as required. Contractors are advised, to ensure proper performance of the entire assembly it is absolutely necessary that base of matwell is formed to a level plane, using an engineered screed. We do not recommend sand and cement screed as it will break up over time.
Stepped profile requires a minimum of 10mm clearance if a door is to pass over the mat
Coir inserts should be vacuumed regularly to remove dirt, grit and loose fibres which collect in treads.
Replacement of inserts is a simple job carried out in-situ. A full range of inserts are available from your local distributor.
Restore lustre to ribbed aluminium sections by lightly rubbing over with abrasive wool.
