Fitting tips for the Matwells
- Advisable to ask a professional flooring installer to fit.
- Cut to length with a sharp hack-saw.
- Make sure the floorcovering is clean and dry before sticking down.
- Use internally, not externally.
- Take the finished height of your fitted (non floating) hard flooring and choose the correct height of trim which will allow the top of the matting to stand 3-4mm proud of the metal matt well edging. For example: if you have a concrete floor covered in 6mm plywood and 3mm LVT butting up against 17mm thick coir matting, then choose the 5mm matwell: 6+3+5 = 14 leaving 3mm of matting above the edge of the metal trim.
- Use Stycco Flex on inside edge of corner mitres, if required. This is then concealed by the matting.
