Sahara is a visually appealing scraping entrance mat designed for high-traffic areas in large and mid-size buildings, such as:
- emergency exits
Sand and dirt that would otherwise get tracked into a building stay on the Sahara. Where no outside mat is available, a mat such as the Sahara Wave is strongly recommended.
The stand-out design has earned the Sahara our highest rating for optical performance. The Sahara is very good at absorbing and releasing sand. That means is has a nice clean look, and that it can be cleaned effectively with just a standard vacuum cleaner.
How? The yarn has been heatset, and comes in a mixed pattern of scraping yarn and absorption yarn. In our system for rating Sand Absorption it is earned a 2, a high score, which has been backed up by an independent lab.
The Sahara is also durable, even under medium to high traffic: in our use classification, it gets a rating of 32.
The Sahara comes with Bfl-s1 backing, the highest standard in fire safety. Highly flame resistant, it releases little smoke, and is compliant with safety regulations. So it is suitable for emergency exits.
It is also eco-friendly: it is made from Econyl® polyamide, which is recycled from post-consumer material.
There is also the option of an s-FLX backing - our revolutionary, eco-friendly alternative to PVC, which
- installs easily
- is 20% lighter than PVC
- takes 30% less energy to make than PVC
- causes 15% less in greenhouse gas emissions
- contains no plasticisers or chlorine
- will not discolour the subfloor
