Easy to attach reed mats
More information on the properties of reed mats and how to attach them can be found in the description of each product. For example, we recommend placing the mats at least ten inches off the ground to extend their life. An edging board can then help to fill the space under the mats.
An advantage of reed mats, they are easy to size. The width of a mat can easily be shortened with pincers by cutting the iron wires to the desired width. You can easily adjust the height of a mat with pruning shears.
Bamboo is one of the most underrated raw materials. Bamboo is sustainable, renewable, grows relatively quickly and its natural beauty makes it unique.
Bamboo is as strong as steel and has greater tensile strength. This is due to the hard surface and parallel fiber bundles of the bamboo stalks that are close together.
Bamboo has the advantage of being super elastic. It is so flexible that it returns to the starting position every time and does not deform after bending.
Thanks to its high stability, bamboo easily lasts a lifetime. Hence, bamboo is increasingly used in public spaces, construction and as decking/terrace boards and fences.
Reed is a versatile product that you can use to quickly create a unique tropical atmosphere. We have both peeled and unpeeled reed mats in our assortment. Unpeeled reed mats are on average 6-8 mm thick and slightly grayer in color. Our reed mats are tied together with galvanized iron wire or green nylon thread. All reed mats in our range are 6 meters wide and available in different heights from 80 to 200 cm. However, if you want to customize a reed mat, you can easily shorten them both in height and width.
To enjoy your reed mat for as long as possible, it is important that it is mounted properly. Please avoid direct contact with the ground. We recommend placing the mats just above the ground so that they do not remain damp for long periods of time. After all, this can cause discoloration and mold over time.
Attaching the reed mat to a Mesh Panel, trellis, balcony fence, construction fence or fencing can be done with Tie-Ties or Tie-Wraps. Wrap these around the stems and fence and twist or pull.
For attaching the reed mat to a fence, we have two options. You can, first, choose to attach it with Wire Clamps. Place these over the stem and hammer them down with a hammer. Second, you can choose to use our fastening screws. These are small screws with a Washer, which you use to screw the cane to the back and the Washer keeps it firmly in place.
A reed mat can easily be cut to size. Shortening a reed mat in height can be done with clippers or hedge shears. Cut the reed at the desired height, and place the reed mat in the desired spot. It is also easy to adjust the width. Choose the right size and add 3 reeds to it. Cut the iron wires from top to bottom and remove the last three stems. This leaves you with a few centimeters of iron wire which can be easily twisted together again so that the reed mat remains firmly attached to each other.
