High visual appeal

Sahara is a scraper walk-off entrance mat designed for high-traffic areas in large and medium-sized buildings – areas such as entrances, stairwells, kitchenettes, elevators and emergency exits. Sand and dirt that would otherwise be walked in are left behind on Sahara walk-off entrance mats. Highly recommended for situations without an outside mat.

The design of Sahara walk-off entrance carpeting ensures the highest visual appeal. The mat performs well in both absorbing and releasing sand. The Sahara entrance mat remains clean looking for long periods of time and can then be effectively cleaned with a regular vacuum cleaner

The yarns used in Sahara are thermally fixed and applied in a mixed pattern of scraping and absorption yarns. The yarns are made of ECONYL® polyamide, a recycled product made from materials like old fishing nets.

The mat has a long service life, even with medium to heavy foot traffic (use classification 32). This entrance mat also meets the highest fire safety class requirements, Bfl-s1.

A sprinkling of colour freshens the deeper tones of Sahara. The friséed yarn gives the cut pile a tufted texture with a ‘hard’ feel, as a result of the stiff, scraper fibres. Feel free to combine Sahara with Sahara Wave. Or introduce a subtle accent, with blue or red shades. The two neutral greys combine well with a cool interior, while our pair of warm brown tones provide a perfect match for many types of wood.

Pura Backing™

Pura Backing™ makes walk-off entrance mats more sustainable by avoiding the use of PVC and plasticisers. It’s the response to increasing demand by commercial and residential decorators for environmental sensitivity and sustainability, down to the last details – even when it comes to entrance mats. Mats with Pura Backing™ meet this requirement – with zero PVC and plasticiser content, avoiding stains on porous subfloors. Thanks to increased flexibility, it is even easier to install!

Made from ECONYL® regenerated nylon

ECONYL® nylon is made from 100% waste material like fishing nets, fabric scraps, carpeting and industrial plastic, which would otherwise pollute the earth. ECONYL® regenerated nylon is processed into yarns for interior applications. Rinos uses ECONYL® yarns to create more sustainable products and a better environment. Every square metre of walk-off mat made with ECONYL® instead of virgin nylon saves more than 5 kg eq CO2 emissions.
