Karaat

Product Number 453
Karaat mats feature a slip-resistant rubber backing and a solution-dyed carpet surface designed to stop dust, dirt, and moisture at your door and provide a safe walking surface.
  • Solution-dyed nylon fibers provide superior color and wash fastness.
  • LUTRADUR primary substrate will not fray, reduces linting, and provides a strong bond between the rubber and the carpet.
  • High Twist heat-set nylon fibers are resistant to crushing and allow dirt to filter into the mat rather than remaining on top of the carpeted surface.
  • Bleach / UV resistant.
  • Mats are available in Anthracite, Black Mink, Blue, Blue Steel, Brown, Grey, Red, Slate Grey, Clear Granite, Clear Black, Clear Red.

Recommended for indoor commercial use at entryways, in lobbies, at front desks or anywhere additional traction or moisture control is needed.

Karaat mats can be cleaned in several different ways.

  1. Commercially laundered (see Laundering Instructions)
  2. Vacuumed regularly: daily in high-traffic areas, weekly in lower-traffic applications
  3. Cleaned with an extractor and laid flat to dry

Mats should always be dry before they are placed back in service and cooled before rolling.

  1. Flush, 2-3 Min. on a medium water level with a maximum temperature of 49°C
  2. Flush (optional), 2-3 Min. on a medium water level with a maximum temperature of 49 °C
  3. Break, 2-3 Min. on a high water level with a maximum temperature of 49 °C
  4. Rinse, 2 Min. on a high water level with cold temperature
  5. Rinse, 2 Min. on a high water level with cold temperature
  6. Extract on low speed, 1-2 Min.
  7. Shakeout with the drum turning, 1 Min.
  8. Extract, on a maximum of 250G, 3-5 Min.
  9. Dry (optional), 5-10 Min. with a maximum basket temperature of 82 °C
  10. Cooldown, 5 Min.

Additional Recommendations:

  • All Solution Dyed Mats can be washed together.
  • For Heavy Soiled Mats, increase the temperature up to max. 71 °C
  • The break should not exceed pH of 9,5; use low pH non-ionic detergents
  • Do not overdry mats; Basket-temperature of the dryer should not exceed 82 °C
  • If mats are not dried, the final rinse can be increased to 49 °C. This will reduce moisture retention following extraction
  • Lay mats flat following removal from washer; allow mats to cool before rolling
