Typically outside, often exposed to the weather, and the first point of contact for people entering the building. Alumat recommends their unique closed draining mat types where water containment or removal is a priority.
These closed draining mats are constructed with drain channels that alternate with the regular infill strips, to carry water away from the mat surface. Unlike the conventional openmat types, such as the Alumat 20 Series, the water and dirt does not discharge randomly under the mat where is can be difficult remove at times.
Instead the water is contained in the channels where the water can soon evaporate, or even be directed to drainage points in the matwell, so continuous water can be efficiently channelled away. This is the best option and available with the 15–20mm deep mat options. Without drainage, any mat well could become waterlogged and cease to perform its function.
Simply place a floor waste,in the mat well, or connection to a threshold drain and our Alumat 15 D series can continuously collect and discharge the water for you.
