If you are looking for an entrance mat, you may have come across a coir mat and a coconut mat, but what is the difference? Well, they are actually the same thing! You will tend to find that the preferred given name to the mat is coir, as it is more technical and well known but, whichever you buy, you will receive the same product with the exact same benefits.
Coir mats are commonly referred to as coconut mats because that is precisely what they are made out of. The husk of a coconut consists of textile, water-resistant fibre, that protects the outer coating of the coconut and the shell inside. The fibres are thick and robust in texture due to the high amount of lignin in the coconut. Lignin is an organic polymer found in plants to increase strength and lifespan. When the husk fibres are extracted they can be used for numerous purposes including door mats. The fibres have a straw-like consistency that offers excellent scraping qualities, and its natural form makes coir matting an excellent eco-friendly solution.
When the fibres are removed from the coconut husk, they are processed into coir, which is then utilised in the production of mats. Ripe coconuts generally produce brown-coloured coir that is coarse in texture, whereas unripe coconuts produce a finer and lighter coloured coir. Depending on the amount of foot traffic in your entranceway, you can choose from light or heavy-duty coir matting.
