Berber Roll Goods Logo mats are produced using an inlay process, where colored material is cut and pieced together by hand before pressing into rubber. As a result, there are very strict design requirements for this product. PMS color matching is not available.
Minimum Text Height: 2" (includes lower case text)
Minimum Line Thickness: 1/4"
Any space between letters or design elements must be at minimum 1/4".
The text requirements are for general use; however, special fonts and very thin letter forms may need to be made larger or thicker and will be approached on a case-by-case basis.
Gradients, tints, screens and transparencies are not supported and should not be used.
Berber Roll Goods mats should be vacuumed regularly (daily in high-traffic areas; weekly in lower-traffic applications). They can also be cleaned with an extractor or hosed off as necessary to remove heavy soil. Hang dry and always make sure they are dry before placing them back in service.
Determine the number of square feet that you will need. Measure the length and width of the area you wish to cover. Multiply the width by the length to get the square footage of the space. For areas that are not rectangular, break the area into smaller rectangles. Multiply the width times the length for each of the smaller rectangles separately and add up all the results to arrive at the overall square footage.
Remove any old floor coverings, debris, and adhesives from the floor. Clean the entire floor surface of any dust, drywall mud, etc. Once the floor has been cleaned, allow it to dry completely. Allow the matting material to sit in the area uninstalled for several hours so it can acclimate to room temperature prior to installation.
Apply your adhesive to the prepared floor according to the adhesive manufacturer's directions. We recommend CA024 multi-purpose solvent-free adhesive for all installations both indoor and outdoor. Never use an adhesive that contains solvents. Similar to laying carpet, roll the matting out over the installation area (paying careful attention to the location and orientation of your logo). Carefully trim the excess material around the perimeter using a utility knife.
