As an online mats reseller with over 20 years of experience in the matting industry, Trusted Mats is well-versed in the benefits of coir matting. Coir is a popular choice for entrance matting due to its natural durability and sustainable properties. In this guide, we’ll cover everything you need to know about coir matting, including its benefits, how to cut it to size, and the different types of coir matting we offer.
The Benefits of Coir Matting
Coir matting is made from coconut husk fibres, which makes it a natural and sustainable option for entrance matting. Not only is it environmentally friendly, but it’s also incredibly durable. Commercial grade coir is even more durable because it has a denser pile and twisted fibres, which resist crushing when walked over.
Some other benefits of coir matting include:
- Provides effective dirt and moisture control at entrances
- Good value for money
- Easy to clean and maintain
- Attractive entrance matting
Different Types of Coir Matting
At Trusted Mats, we offer coir matting in a variety of sizes and colours. Here are some of the different types we offer:
13mm Natural Coir
Our 13mm Natural Coir is our most popular coir matting product. It’s perfect for commercial and residential entrances and provides excellent dirt and moisture control. It also costs less than the other depths and is best for those with the least door clearance, enabling doors to open over the mat more easily.
17mm Natural Coir
Our 17mm Natural Coir is a great option for entrances with high traffic. It provides extra durability and is suitable for both commercial and residential use.
30mm Natural Coir
For the deepest coir depth, we offer our 30mm Natural Coir. It’s good for areas with high foot traffic and heavy use, and it provides excellent dirt and moisture control.
Coir Matting in Grey
For a more modern look, we offer coloured coir, including Grey Coloured Coir Matting. It’s perfect for contemporary commercial and residential entrances.
Coir Matting Cut to Size
If you need a mat that fits a specific area, we can help. At Trusted Mats, we offer coir mats cut to size, so you get a custom mat that fits perfectly. We sell coir cut to length off rolls, in fixed widths of 100cm and 200cm. This means that we can cut a mat to the exact length you need. You can also further cut the mat to fit an unusual shape or size, so if you need a mat for an irregularly shaped space, coir is a great option.
Coir mats cut to size are perfect for use in mat wells or recesses, as they can be made to fit the exact dimensions of the space. Coir is a great choice for use in mat wells, as it is durable and hard-wearing. Using coir mats in mat wells is a great way to reduce dirt and moisture in your building, as the matting can trap dirt and water before it is tracked further into the building.
Coir is also a popular choice for fitted wall-to-wall installations. When using coir in this way, it is best to have a trim added where the matting meets the surrounding carpet or hard floor. This will create a neat and professional finish, and prevent any tripping hazards.
How to Cut Coir Matting to Size
One of the best things about coir matting is that it’s easy to cut to size to fit where you require it. All you need is a utility knife and a steel rule.
Here’s a step-by-step guide to cutting coir matting to size:
- Measure the area where you want to install the matting.
- Lay the coir matting flat on a clean, flat surface.
- Use a steel rule to mark where you want to cut the matting.
- Hold the steel rule firmly in place and use a sharp utility knife to cut along the marked line.
- Repeat the process until you have the correct size of coir matting.
Sustainability is an important consideration for many people today. Coir is a sustainable material, as it is made from the husks of coconuts. Coconut trees grow in tropical regions, and the trees produce fruit year-round. The husks of coconuts are a by-product of the coconut industry, so using coir is a great way to reduce waste. Coir is also a natural and biodegradable material, so it is an eco-friendly choice for matting.
At Trusted Mats, we are committed to sustainability. We offer a range of sustainable matting solutions, including coir mats, recycled rubber mats, and carpet tiles made from recycled materials. If you are looking for a sustainable matting solution, we can help you find the right product for your needs.
