We frequently get asked out by customers how they can cut their coir mat to a specific size, to fit into a mat well for example. Therefore we have put together a simple step by step guide on the easiest way of cutting coir matting.

1. Turn the coir mat over so that the backing is face up

2. Use a tape measure or a large ruler to measure the size that you require and make a mark with a pen. Take measurements and make markings at multiple points on the mat backing to ensure accuracy.

Taking Coir Measurements

3. Line up the measurements using a steel rule or a spirit level for example.
