Non Shedding Coir Doormat – Is There Such A Thing?
Natural Coir Matting remains many people’s number one door matting material. Traditional, hard-wearing, long-lasting and stylish, there are many positives that make it a popular choice. There’s only one downfall. Shedding. Of course, with the higher grades of Coir, shedding is far less of an issue due to the more densely woven pile. But Coir fibre loss can rarely be totally avoided. So what about a non-shedding alternative?
With the natural look of Coir and super durability, our Synthetic Coir Entrance Matting is a brilliant solution to the shedding conundrum. It’s 100% Non Shedding.
The weave is a looped pile, which feels softer under foot than the traditional coir brush pile, but still has an effective scraping action. At 12mm thick, our Synthetic Coir is also an ultra thin doormat, which is perfect for shallow mat well recesses where natural Coir would be too thick.
Synthetic Coir poses no trouble when it comes to cleaning. Simply vacuum, shake outdoors and even use liquid detergent to spot clean any stubborn marks.
Obviously the pile is synthetic polypropylene, but with the backing being recycled rubber this goes some way towards eco-friendliness. And because it’s so hard-wearing, you really won’t have to replace this matting very often, which is another step in the right direction when thinking about the Planet.
The other great feature is that our Synthetic Coir is compatible with underfloor heating due to the heat resistant backing. Again this fills a gap left by natural Coir with a PVC Backing that doesn’t withstand the heat too well.
With all of these amazing features, it does leave us with the question: Is Synthetic Coir Matting even better than the real thing?
