This is how you install your Kåbe Original Mat
Generally, the mat should always be positioned on a fixed, flat surface.
1) 1. On existing Floor
where there is a slope or stair tread
If the mat is on a slope or a step, we recommend studs on the underlying surface so that it cannot slip. On a slope, the mat should also be reinforced.
2) 2. On existing Floor
avoid the risk of tripping
The mat can be equipped with a Kobe Mat Ramp type 1 on the front or rear edge to avoid the risk of stumbling.
3) On existing Floor
against threshold or stair tread
If the mat is placed against a threshold or a tread, a Kobe Mat Ramp type 1 arranged against the front edge can be added.
4) Recessed on existing Floor
mat ramp around the entire mat
Kobe Mat Ramp type 2 around all sides of the mat. The ramp lies loose and should be fixed with screws if possible.
5) Recessed on existing Floor
against threshold or step
Kobe Mat Ramp type 2 can be installed on 2 or 3 sides, if the mat is placed against a threshold or a tread. It should be fixed against the floor by means of screws.
6) Recessed in Floor
should be recessed by 20-22 mm
The mat should be recessed 20 – 22 mm. In order to protect the surrounding edges of the floor the fitting of a Kobe kerb angle frame is recommended.
7) Existing recess in Floor
recess less than 20 mm
În the mat is placed in a recess with less depth than 15 mm, Kobe special ramps should be installed on the front and rear edge. If the recess is 15-19 mm deep, Kobe Original mat with height 18 mm should be used.
8) Soil tray underneath the Mat
Kobe soil tray has a proper sand separator. It is manufactured with or without water trap.
9) Mat on Drainage Grid
To achieve a “self-cleaning” effect the mat can be laid on a Kobe drainage grid on top of a deeper depression.
How to handle the original mat
The Kobe Original Mat is designed to wipe sand and dirt from shoe soles. The construction is such that a lot of sand could be contained in the mat without making it look untidy.
No heavy Lifts with the Kobe Original Mat
The Kobe mat does not have to be lifted to remove sand and dirt. Take a simple grip with the Kobe mat lifter hook and fold the mat about 15 cm. After that you just roll up the mat and remove the sand and dirt with a vacuum cleaner or a brush. Roll up long mats from both ends.
The mat has two top faces. For maximum life it should be turned upside down at least once a year to achieve uniform wear of the rubber on both sides.
