BAL is world renown brand within the tiling industry because of the brand’s ability to continuously provide innovative products. BAL Rapid-Mat is no exception and was released at the beginning of 2014. This new, revolutionary uncoupling mat is a beneficial solution for fixers, contractors, and specifiers. As is the way with all BAL products, it’s backed by a BAL 25 Year Guarantee.
The BAL Rapid-Mat is an uncoupling matting solution that provides a fast-track solution when tiling onto problematic floor substrates. The decoupling mat helps to protect the floor from damage caused by stresses and lateral movement in the flooring substrate. The Rapid-Mat is suitable for use on timber floors, new screeds, and floors with underfloor heating systems installed. The mat can also be used with most types of tiles, including mosaics. Once the mat is laid, tiling can commence immediately.
A Brief Look at the Benefits of Installing BAL Rapid-Mat
- Reduced cost: The Rapid-Mat uses about 20% less adhesive than like matting systems with cavities. The BAL Rapid-Mat doesn’t have cavities within the top layer and this save 1.5kg of adhesive per m2, or 45kg per 30m roll!
- Performance: Due to its condensed 1mm profile with minimal compression, this uncoupling matting is capable of increased loading capacity. Plus, the 1mm thickness also makes it suitable for overlaying existing floors and avoids an excessive increase in the height of the floor.
- Lightweight: Makes it easy to carry and transport
- Easy to install: A printed grid structure on the back of the matting makes rolling out, measuring, and cutting quicker and easier
