Emperor Tent Coir Matting (Type 2, widthways fit)
The ultimate flooring option for Emperors, our hardwearing Coir Matting instantly transforms a tent, taking it up a level of luxury.
Specially designed by Bell Tent UK, our Indian-made Coir Matting is incredibly durable and looks wonderful, as well as creating a proper layer of insulation between you and the ground, and is ideal for people who want the very best set-up, or for professional or long-term users.
Two types of Emperor Coir Matting are available. The rectangular option runs lengthways along your tent, with corners than can be folded under to match the shape of the groundsheet. The square option runs width-ways across your tent, and has shaped corners to fit neatly along the base of the walls.
All of our responsibly-made coir comes from sources certified by the Coir Board of India, and is of a S3M4 rating – which happens to be same as used by Buckingham Palace in the Queen's annual tea party marquees! It has a very strong weave which gives good height to the coir, meaning greater insulation, more stiffness (so less rumpling and tripping) and a much longer life.
For added hardiness, the outer curved edges on both types are finished with dark brown cotton binding while the straight edges are stitched.
A resilient and natural flooring choice to make your tent as comfortable as possible.
Eco-Friendly Coconut Husk Fibre (100% biodegradable)
Coconut is largely cultivated in coastal Kerala, the southernmost state of India. Coconut has a hard, fibrous, outer covering called husk.
Please note: This Coir is designed for the stated size of bell tent but actually comes up 20cm smaller to fit the internal dimensions. Please bear this in mind if buying for another structure.

TYPE 2: 3 x Sections Of Coir (2.9 m x 3.8 m)
All new, this version comprises of two overlapping halves, one at each end of the tent so the join is shorter and runs from the middle of the main door on the long side of the tent. Each half is squarer than Type 1 at 2.9 by 3.8m and the corners have been shaped to copy the groundsheet. The outside edges are hemmed with dark brown cotton but not the side that goes down the middle. The plus is that they are shaped and that you could have one at one end of the tent and an inner at the other.
Important note: Coir matting is great for long term pitching but not ideal for occasional camping trips as it is large and heavy (a rolled half-moon is twice the size of a packed down bell tent so you will need a large vehicle).
Please consider this before ordering, as returns for “it's just too big” are expensive and at the buyer's expense as the size is not a manufacturing defect.
