Frequently Asked Questions - CGear Multimat
Multimat is a dual layer dust abatement mat that stops dust and dirt transfer from the outside to the inside of your tent, caravan or camper trailer.
Multimat has a 12 month warranty from the date of purchase. This is a manufacturer’s warranty eg faulty sewing or material. Faulty products should be returned to the place of purchase together with a copy of the original receipt.
Multimat is made from high density polypropylene, knitted mono/mono and fully bound all the way around the mat and peg pointed approximately every half metre.
Tent pegs can be pegged into multimat, but not designed to be pegged. The mat material has rip stop technology so it won’t tear or fray if you put a hole in it.
Multimat can be repaired with a patch and uv polyester thread.
Multimat is designed to be pegged at all dring’s for maximum efficiency.
Multimat is fully reversible therefore can be used either green or grey side face up.
All good camp furniture have leg protectors or loop legs to protect mat from damage. If legs have plastic protectors, these need to be replaced with rubber protectors to stop sliding.
This is due to the dual layers and the law of gravity. The sand and dirt won’t rise to the top of the multimat because the multiple layers create maximum resistance. This stops sand and dirt transferring into the tent, caravan or camper trailer unlike a single layer mat which has no resistance.
From our experience, the same principle applies to mud not rising through to the top layer. Mud left on top of the multimat will dry out, return to dust and dissipate through the multimat back to the ground.
Dust, dirt or sand particles will not get trapped between the layers, it has been designed to fall through the top layer, then the second layer and onto the ground.
Multimat is extremely robust and will endure the claws of a dog.
It is recommended multimat not be used on a surface with stones. Stones may damage the multimat's weave and will not be covered under warranty. We suggest removing loose stones either by hand or using a broom prior to laying down the multimat.
Multimat is not designed to be laid loosely over hard surfaces i.e. concrete or other hard surfaces unless it can be pegged down firmly.
Leather sole footwear should not be worn on multimat as it may cause you to slip.
Avoid spilling any liquid that contains acetone (e.g. Nail polish remover) as it will melt a hole in the material.
This would indicate multimat has not been pegged out firmly or you’re wearing leather sole footwear.
Multimat will not be harmed by petrol or oil spillage.
This may burn a hole in either one or both the layers of multimat. This can be repaired with a patch and uv thread.
Multimat allows grass to breathe and grow through the multimat, unlike tarps, carpet and dome tent bases which kill grass because the air and sunlight can’t get to the grass.
Multimat will not be damaged by driving your vehicle over it.
Bindie eye’s do not attach to a multimat, although “dog paws” do.
Yes, but multimat keeps sweeping to a minimum.
Multimat was not designed to keep you dry. It was designed to allow the water to fall through the multimat.
Multimat works well as a shade mat hung to the side of the caravan. It provides 90% UV protection so it won’t affect the life span of the multimat.
Using multimat over the trailer will prevent your load from falling off. It won’t buff or flap around whilst you drive as the wind travels straight through the multimat, providing tied down correctly using drings.
Multimat is supplied with a complimentary reusable, breathable, heavy duty carry bag with handles.
Multimat is bound all the way around the mat preventing the edges from curling.
Multimat can be hosed down or jet washed. Use a mild detergent and for more stubborn stains, we recommend you use a high pressure hose.
Multimat is porous and doesn’t absorb moisture. This prevents mould or mildew forming unlike other products. Shake off excess moisture from the multimat, fold it and place it back into its storage bag. When you have returned home, hang wet multimat and bag out to dry thoroughly.
