Moisture just met its MAT(CH)!

Keep entrances clean and dry, whatever the weather, with Ultimate – the brand new fibre option from INTRAsystems. HydroTXTM material technology wicks water off shoes 3X faster than standard entrance matting, even if users don’t wipe their feet. It’s just one of the exciting features defining INTRAsystems’ brand-new fibre insert range.

From architects through to facilities managers, the need to reduce the risk of slips and keep building entrances clean and dry continues to be a key concern when specifying entrance matting products. Not every product on the market is truly effective at stopping water from being tracked into buildings on wet, rainy days (around 170 of them per year on average in the UK!)

INTRAsystems is therefore delighted to introduce INTRAlux Ultimate to the market in 2022. It is the perfect insert choice where moisture absorption is a priority. The quick-acting fibre comes in a full suite of colour options and offers a 100% PVC-free option for projects where environmental concerns are high on the agenda.

Colour & Style

As INTRAsystems’ advocates have come to expect, design style has been fully factored into the new range, alongside a choice of functional variations. Customer response to the breadth of choice has been extremely positive.

Like Elite, Ultimate features a considered and contemporary colour palette and takes its influence from shades found in nature. Clients have nine unique colours to choose from, including warming tones of Sandstone and Terracotta, and earthy hues of Truffle and Forest Green.

There’s also a choice of three greys, ranging from a brown-based Anthracite to the lighter green hints of Lichen, while Night Sky and Ruby introduce black and red colour profiles, respectively.

The Ultimate fibre range is compatible across all our recessed matting systems. Every colour harmonises with each of the standard aluminium, black, bronze and wood anodised system finishes.

Moisture-combatting ability is coupled with high, Bfl-s1 fire resistance and robust scraping action. But the benefits don’t stop there. The team is rightly proud of the fibre’s impressive sustainability credentials too.

Sustainability remains at the top of the INTRAsystems product development agenda

Each colour in the range is woven from 100% Econyl regenerated nylon yarn, as you would expect from a high-performance fibre. What’s new and unique however is INTRAsystems’ new PureBase option. This is a PVC-free backing, thus completely avoiding the use of environmentally harmful softeners and plasticizers and with a significantly lower environmental impact, from manufacture through to end-of-life disposal.

Together, this results in an entrance matting solution that’s 100% sustainable; a key commercial focus as businesses seek to lessen their carbon footprint, adhere to stricter building regulations, and take a proactive role in the fight against climate change.

A stunning new range of entrance matting fibre options

With the launch of INTRAlux Ultimate, INTRA took the opportunity to improve and expand its entire fibre collection, with three completely new fibres to give clients a well-rounded solution for every entrance mat requirement.

Hitting commercial wear classifications 32-33, each insert option has been mindfully designed to tick every box and overcome the common challenges faced in commercial entrance environments.

What’s changed in the new INTRAlux range update?

Elite maintains its place in the range, with excellent dirt scraping credentials. It is composed of a combination of course and fine Econyl monofilaments. Its robust profile ensures excellent shelf-life, even in extremely high-traffic areas. Like the Ultimate fibre range, Elite comes in a choice of nine complementary colours, including Purple, Blue and Turquoise and several neutral tones.

Complementing Ultimate and Elite, the revised INTRAlux collection includes four additional fibre options, to suit every budget and application.

Red carpet luxury with INTRAlux Prestige

At the lower traffic end of the range, Prestige is a soft walk-off entrance carpeting fibre, perfect for hotels and spaces where comfort and absorption are a priority.
Like Ultimate, the Prestige fibre option is manufactured from pure Econyl and available to specify with PureBase PVC-free backing, so it’s also 100% sustainable with a significantly lower environmental impact. Density wise, as you’d expect, it’s a high-pile fibre, with a Cfl-s1 fire rating and class 32 wear rating.

Budget-friendly options

Finally, where budget is driving the entrance matting specification, look no further than the INTRAlux Linear and Select fibres. A practical colour palette of anthracite, black and two greys, make both styles a cost-effective option.

The textured, linear option remains in range; woven from naturally stain resistant polypropylene in a looped pile finish, while Select is made from Econyl and woven into cut pile fibres that promote excellent dirt and moisture retention. As with Elite and Ultimate, Linear and Select fibres can both be supplied in recommended recessed matting systems.

Finally, for customers wanting a tiled format, Premier completes the new line-up, combining a 50 x 50 cm square tile format made with Econyl

All INTRA products offer the assurance of full warranties up to 15 years and excellent after-sales support
