REPAIR OF DOORMATS
You keep your doormat in good condition, but despite of this it may need repair. Not every doormat StepMat could be repaired, but when it is possible and economically justified we will take care.
Replacing the inserts coul change the functionality of your doormat. You can put it in a new location (other area) and in different configuration of doormats. You may just want a different look, color or size.
We can advise you. For convenience, the possible repairs and changes according doormats StepMat, are described below.
DOORMAT TYPE - UNIVERSAL
The textile and rubber inserts could be replaced. The wearing out of a THREE-row brush insert is rather unlikely, but if necessary, it also could be replaced. There is a possibility for placing an optional insert - textiles, rubber or THREE-row brush.
It should be borne in mind that if a material is added, there will be noticeable difference between the new and the one which has already been exposed to weathering.
Replacement of profile - SINGLE line brush when it is necessary, includes obligatory changing of the profile itself, not only of the insert.
Replacement of aluminum profiles – it may be necessary if a car had passed through the doormat or at any other reason the doormat has been subjected to intense pressure and profiles are crushed or severely bent.
DOORMAT TYPE - OPENED
Repair of doormat type OPENED could not be done. The production process does not allow.
DOORMAT TYPE - TEN
For a doormat TEN could be done only replacement of textile or rubber inserts.
Unfortunately, at the moment the repair period is at least 30 days.
DOORMAT TYPE - BRUSH
Complete repair (replacing of profiles) of doormats type BRUSH is not effective. Such a repair can rationalize only in case you need to replace one or more damaged profiles of a relatively new doormat.
In textile doormats borne in mind their transportation the repair would be expensive. However, on these doormats it is possible to be necessary remodeling, reduction or extension. It should be borne in mind that if you add material there will be a noticeable difference between the new and the one which has already been exposed to weathering.
Price for repair of textile doormat can be determined depending on the need.
STAIR EDGE STRIPS
In stair edge strips we are offering replacement of the rubber insert. It can be bought through the on-line shop.
При стълбищните лайсни предлагаме подмяна на гумената вложка. Може да бъде закупена през он лайн магазина.
The transportation of the doormats is on customer’s costs in both directions. The point where the doormats should be transported is the town of Veliko Tarnovo.

COMPLY YOUR DOORMAT WITH THE TRAFFIC (people passing) through the AREA
How could a doormat help? It depends on the specific purpose. You could buy any doormat, of a brand or anonymous, but take into consideration your needs.
Several factors could influence your choice. Here are some examples:
A hotel in the mountains, busyness during the summer season (when it happens to rain) and during the winter season when there is snow. If the hotel is small, it involves a small flow of passing people, and in this case a textile doormat of 2nd or 3rd zone would be sufficient. But if the entrance is directly from the street this involves more dirt and it will be better if you also put a doormat of 1st zone. If the hotel has more rooms and larger traffic, a doormat of 1st zone is needed. In this case an internal doormat only would not have the capacity to stop all the dirt and moisture.
A hotel on the seaside would have more need of a good doormat of 1st zone in order to stop the solid particles (sand, dust). The doormat of 3rd zone could be smaller in size, with the hotel’s logo for example.
A gas station, supermarket, office building need a doormat of 1st zone (external) and it should meet the heavy endurance requirement. Here you will also need a doormat of 2nd zone (an internal textile one) in order to stop the moisture and the mud in wet weather. These are areas with year-round activity.
A private home needs a small doormat. Small because this is the only place where people passing stop. At our doorstep only we all consciously clean our shoes. The zone is important depending on where you want to place the doormat. A textile doormat outside in wet weather would not be useful and an external doormat placed inside the premises would require frequent cleaning.
A restaurant, no matter how big or small it is, needs full consideration of the choice. Here, in addition to the considerations with regard to the location and the flow, it would be good to comply with the interior (vision, colours, size of the lobby). Doormats with the restaurant’s logo would look good. Remember that the more steps the visitor makes on the doormat, the more pleasantly it will be inside the premises. Placing an external doormat would not likely be an appropriate choice unless there is a constant flow of people.

The care of cleanliness is important. You might prevent contamination of the interior with doormats suitable for the purpose. Consistent in form and color, custom-built.
How a doormat can help? Depends what is about. You can buy any doormat, brand or anonymous, but consider it to your needs. Conform with:
- The flow of the passing people (load endurance);
- In which seasons is to be used (what is to keep - snow, sand, dust, mud ... how often it rains ...);
- What is the coverage of the floor on the premises (tile, stone, wood .... or difficult to maintain marble ....);
The more steps the visitors made on the doormats, the less damage on the premises. This does not mean to buy a huge and expensive doormat! Let your choice be functional.
