Birrus Installation Service Available – contact us for 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.

Stepped profile requires a minimum of 10mm clearance if a door is to pass over the mat

Care & Maintenance

Vacuum clean matting regularly and if required spot clean carpet inserts with dry shampoo or steam clean as required.
Replacement of inserts is a simple job carried out in-situ. A full range of inserts is available from your local distributor.
Restore lustre to ribbed aluminium sections by lightly rubbing over with abrasive wool.
