Some surfaces can present a slip hazard, especially in environments where they may be wet or dirty. DURAGRIT is designed specifically for entrances where slipping is a concern. The durable grit tread provides a safe walking surface to minimise the risk of slips or falls.

Birrus Installation Service Available (more details)
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.
An alternative installation method for DURAGRIT is to install DUAL TREADS (that is, 2 x 50mm wide increments) alternately set into concrete, or paving tiles across sloping ramps and walkways.
For abrasive grit, the best method is a hot water hose or stiff brush. Do NOT use mops.
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.
