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.
In 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.
Entrance Matting Systems Ltd offer 4 standard finishes: Gold, Bronze, Black and Gun Metal. All three are available for the entire EMS Evergreen Debris Channel range and EMS Tretford Design range. We can also anodise the mat well frames to match the matting.
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.
Anodizing offers specifiers a greater design capability to keep the entrance in continuity with interior design palettes. Unlike other finishes, anodizing allows the aluminium to maintain its metallic appearance.
Choosing an anodised finish will lower maintenance costs for greater life cycle value of your EMS entrance matting.
