ULTRAMAT

First Impressions Count

The ultimate design choice for your building.

Your entranceway creates the first impression of your building. Matting systems often let down quality building design by sacrificing visual appeal with low quality matting. However, Birrus ULTRAMAT can offer you the look you want without the need to compromise. Our flagship matting system offers you the design flexibility, performance and build-quality that you need to achieve the best outcome for your building entry.

Style

ULTRAMAT offers a quality finish for your building entrance which will complement the visual impact that your design creates. With a range of different carpet insert options and finishes, we can offer unrivalled design flexibility to complement your chosen colour scheme.

Performance

Your matting system is also there to do a job. ULTRAMAT offers exemplary dirt and moisture retention, even in buildings with high foot-traffic. This not only keeps your internal flooring clean and dry, it also contributes to its longevity by reducing wear and tear.

Quality

ULTRAMAT is designed and constructed in our state-of-the-art Australian manufacturing facility, using only high-quality materials. The result is a durable matting system that will stand the test of time and heavy use, without a loss of performance.

Anodised Options

An optional 15-micron anodised finish can be applied to the aluminium extrusions in Clear, Precious Gold, Midnight Black or Antique Bronze. This creates a different look and provides additional protection against wear.

Colour Range

Your choice of 13 standard insert colours, to compliment the colour palette of your interior. Other colours are also available through special order.

The ultimate design choice for your building entry matting system.

Birrus ULTRAMAT Systems

Birrus ULTRAMAT is our flagship product and is constructed from alternate treads of aluminium and carpet running across the doorway. It is ideal for interior or exterior applications with the appropriate type of textured insert selected by you.

The carpet treads are securely held within extruded aluminium retaining sections which are lightly furrowed on the exposed side to produce a non-skid surface.

ULTRAMAT is available in open and closed construction formats. The Open Slimline construction has a 10mm depth and features a perforated joining strip between the carpet strips to allow for drainage. The Closed construction is available in both 10mm and 16mm depths. As with all Birrus matting systems, ULTRAMAT can be individually tailored to meet the length and width required for your design.

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 the 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.
