A BrilliantStep Forward


Notrax tell us all about their new matting solution, the 196 BrilliantStep™ Brush Logo Mat, and why all the years of hard work are paying off.


After more than a year of intense research and development, Notrax® is proud to introduce the Notrax® 196 BrilliantStep™ Brush logo mat – a custom-printed brush entrance mat for indoor and outdoor use. This high-quality, multi-functional dust control mat not only scrapes and cleans shoes to prevent dirt and moisture getting tracked into facilities, it also provides an excellent opportunity to promote a brand or company name, as most people primarily look to the fl oor.


Unique Logo Printing What makes the BrilliantStep™ Brush unique is the custom printing possibility. Most outdoor logo mats are sewn in, or manufactured using an inlaid logo process where the logo is custom cut from the same material and inlaid within the mat. This does not allow for fi ne lines, shading or 3D effects, and aside from being such a labour-intensive process which limits design possibilities, it also creates a large amount of waste, thereby increasing the cost of the mat.


The BrilliantStep™ Brush is available with the Notrax® BrilliantStep™ printing, a state-of-the-art technology that allows 3D effects and colour shading for each mat to give a truly individual image. BrilliantStep™ printing uses a palette of 16 colours, whereby almost any colour can be mixed and matched to penetrate the fi bers from the surface of the


mat down to the root of the fi ber – superior colour fastness is ensured, in accordance with DIN54006.


Tough And Durable Manufactured in a similar manner to artifi cial turf, the BrilliantStep™ Brush offers the unique combination of the scraping action from that of a brush mat, and the durability that artifi cial turf is known for. The BrilliantStep™ Brush is densely tufted using coarse crush-resistant yarns, which will tolerate more wear and keep its appearance and functionality longer, so its suitable for entrances with the heaviest footfall. The dense structure helps to hide dirt even in between cleanings, so the entrance will look great after thousands of people have walked over them.


Entrance matting is the fi rst line of defense in keeping dirt and debris from entering the building and can remove up to 80% of dirt. Over a 20- day period, 1,000 people will deposit 24lbs of dirt; for public buildings with high daily traffi c, the benefi ts of a good entrance matting system are very measurable in the annual savings of cleaning costs.


The proper use of entrance matting can reduce the amount of dirt that is brought into the building that would otherwise get trapped in interior carpeting. Carpet soils have a texture that is similar to a razor, and as carpets are walked on, their

fi bres can be cut which shortens the overall life span of the carpet. Within the fi rst 6ft, 42% of the fl oor’s fi nish or carpet nap will be removed after only 1,500 people have entered. Entrance matting absorbs much of the initial abuse to extend the life of the interior fl ooring or carpeting to protect the investment – the more dirt removed at the entrance, the fewer that can become airborne inside the building, improving air quality. LEED recommends a permanent entryway walk-off system at all regularly used, exterior-to-interior entrances.


Indoors Or Outdoors The BrilliantStep™ Brush can be used indoors, under a portico or outdoors. With a thickness of 18mm, the BrilliantStep™ Brush can be easily installed in the majority of mat wells and recessed frames, but loose lay mats are also available. The mat has excellent adherence and adapts to any surface with a heavy duty vinyl backing, which is slip resistant and keeps the mat in place. The BrilliantStep™ Brush is available in standard sizes, with custom lengths up to 120cm wide or bespoke. Vinyl bevel accessories are available to fi nish off loose lay mats and prevent tripping on the mat.
