Tread Insert Selection for Birrus Entrance Mats

Entrance matting plays an important part in the maintenance and longevity of a building’s floor surfaces by helping to diminish the amount of moisture, dirt, and general contamination that enters the building on users’ footwear. Entrance mats also provides the first impression of the building and the occupants so selection of the best type and style of entrance mat is important and there are a number of factors to take into consideration such as the building’s use, the number of patrons that will use the entrance, whether the entrance mat is to be located externally, or internally, and not least the aesthetics of the mat in relation to the surrounding floor. 

Birrus entrance mats come in 10mm and 16mm thicknesses. The 10mm thickness can be used for the majority of applications where medium to heavy foot traffic is expected, and light to medium wheeled vehicles are to cross over the mat. The 16mm thickness is to be used where heavy weights are expected to traverse the mat, i.e. car showrooms where vehicles are to be driven over the entrance mat, or where large scissor lifts are to be driven across a mat to access other sections of a building for maintenance work.

Consideration should be given to the fact that the natural coir inserts sit approximately 10mm above the extruded aluminium tread rails when new that will require additional clearance for doors that open over the mat.
