Correct planning for frames and mats

When planning the installation of a Geggus entrance matting system, please consider the following key points:

Turn key solution

If required we can provide a complete turn key solution and can provide a full digital measuring and installation service – contact us for more details.

Optimum fitting

An entrance mat should always be in a frame which is fitted flush to the floor the measuring and installation of the frame are described in detail on page 39 of our catalogue.

Ordering

When ordering a system consisting of frame and mat, or a well with a mat, please always state the outside dimensions of the frame. We will then deduct approx. 10 mm for the finished size of the mat (more details are included on page 42 of our brochure). Please also remember that when ordering a Top Clean mat for an entrance area, the profile length and direction of traffic should always be clearly stated.

Existing angle frames

If you already have an angle frame, please clearly state the inside dimensions of the frame. We will deduct approx. 5 mm from this to calculate the production size for the mat (more details are included on page 42 of our brochure).

Multi-part mats

For large-size entrance areas, mats with a profile length of more than 300 cm and/or a weight of more than 50 kg should be divided, as they would be too bulky or too heavy for installation and maintenance as a single piece.

Drainage

When installing angle frames or wells in outdoor areas, drainage should be provided to enable water to effectively drain away; or the mat well should be connected to the drainage system.

Laying mats without a frame

The Geggus Top Clean TREND® mat (in 10mm and 17m m) options can be equipped with a ramped edge so that a well is not required for any subsequent re-laying (see page 40 of our brochure for more details).

Mats for heavily frequented areas

For heavily-trafficked entrance areas (airports, supermarkets, shopping centres etc.) We recommend the Geggus Alu-profile mat systems – Top Clean STABIL, Top Clean OBJEKT and Top Clean HIGH – all of which have been designed specifically to meet the needs of these high-volume applications. (see pages 24–29 of our brochure for more details).

Special designs

For the production of special designs, we recommend a weather-resistant and durable PVC template (see page 33 of our brochure for more details). Please note however that the template must be rolled and not folded, and the upper side of the template and direction of traffic must be clearly indicated. This is essential for the production of an accurately dimensioned entrance mat.
