BIRRUS 'DURAGRIT' (abrasive grit) is a hardwearing industrial non-slip tread insert developed for internal and external environments where adjacent floor surfaces may prove hazardous. Highly suited for applications on sloping walkways.


This unique product provides safe footing in high traffic areas exposed to wet or slippery conditions.

A well proven design is to install DUAL TREADS (that is, 2 x 50mm wide increments) alternately set into concrete, or paving tiles across sloping ramps and walkways.

“Duragrit” mats are designed for industrial situation, if used as an entrance mat the abrasive nature of the mat treads will ruin dress shoes and will take skin from kids’ knees should they fall onto the matting.

DURAGRIT is available in 10mm Open Construction Slimline. It is also available in 10mm & 16mm Closed Construction.

An Open Construction Slimline aluminium extrusion system is linked with a perforated joining strip to allow for drainage. They are best suited to exterior applications where provisions have been made for drainage in the mat well.

Not suited for retail or office buildings, due to the abrasive nature of the treads they will ruin the underside or soles of dress shoes.
