Coir matting makes use of coir, which is coconut fibre that is extracted from the husk of coconut. It is used in many different applications, but here at Flooring Direct, we are concerned with its use for creating floor mats and tiles.
We make use of red coir, whereby large amounts of the coconut fibre are woven in heavy looms, before being cut up into the required size, and lastly bound round the edges by a type of rope made of the same material. Alternatively, it can also be made by arranging alternate layers in sinuous and straight paths, which are afterwards stitched together.
The matting available at Flooring Direct comes complete with a PVC backing. Its design is ideal for areas where there is a lot of pedestrian traffic such as offices, clubs, pubs, and restaurants. It is great for use in areas such as doorways, entrances, and hallways. It may also be appropriate for use in outdoor areas such as porches and exterior entrance areas.
There is no adhesive required when the mat is fitted tightly to the edges, and we are able to offer it cut to the exact size you specify. It is possible to set it into your carpet, laminate or wood flooring in order to reduce marks and scratches by removing any dirt and grit from your shoes before anyone steps onto your usual flooring. There is a selection of nine different colours to choose from, including the natural colours of the fibre, black, blue, brown, green, red, corn, and grey.
