Anodising is the method of treating metals usually to form oxide coatings for the purpose of increasing the resistance of the surface of the metal, or offering a colour match to suit an interior design colour scheme.
With aluminium, the anodising process forms a layer of aluminium oxide or corundum, which is very hard, relatively inert , electrically insulating and can absorb dyes to colour the film.
NEW SERVICE: Colour matched anodised aluminium, EMS offer a unique service to colour match (as close as it is possible to do so) our aluminium grid entrance matting systems to your colour scheme and design. For more information please email or call us. Please also see our case study; The Blade, Reading.
The main benefits of selecting an anodised entrance matting option for your entrance matting are:
Anodised entrance matting products increase life span and offer significant economic advantages through maintenance and operating savings. Anodising is a reacted finish that is integrated with the underlying aluminium for total bonding and unmatched adhesion.
Exterior anodic coatings provide good stability to ultraviolet rays, do not chip or peel, and are easily repeatable.
Wear and tear from fabrication, handling, installation, frequent surface dirt is virtually nonexistent. Rinsing or mild soap and water cleaning usually will restore an anodized surface to its original appearance. Mild abrasive cleaners can be used for more difficult deposits.
Anodising the aluminium grid entrance matting system offers specifiers a greater design capability to keep the entrance in continuity with interior design palettes. Unlike other finishes, anodising allows the aluminium to maintain its metallic appearance, while changing its colour.
Anodised entrance matting system standard colour choices:
Gold – light, medium and dark
Bronze – light, medium and dark
Gun metal grey
Many major retail chains, high end offices and apartments as well as hotels and restaurants have specified EMS’s anodised colours along with either the Evergreen Debris Channel barrier entrance matting systems, such as DC022 heavy ribbed polypropyplene infills or the Tretford Design Range barrier entrance matting with the luxurious natural goat hair infills (with a choice of 60 colours).
The metallic golds and bronzes have a selection of 3 shades within each. This adds to the design scope of EMS’s entrance matting ranges. Samples of any combination of colours and infills materials can be ordered using the EMS sample picker or please give us a call.
Anodising will incur an additional charge however, choosing an anodised finish will lower maintenance costs for greater life cycle value of your EMS entrance matting.
