The visual appeal of Coir, in a commercial-grade matting system

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.

Birrus Installation Service Available

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

Care & Maintenance

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.
