There are 3 main types of carpet inserts for different applications.  Below you can better determine which will function best in your entrance.  

What Type of Carpet Insert Should I Use In My Metal Roll-Up Mat?

There are basically three different types of carpet-type inserts available for aluminum roll-up mats.  If you are looking at replacing your existing carpet inserts we would like to first emphasize that NOT ALL INSERTS ARE THE SAME SIZE.  There are different insert widths used by different manufacturers.  That being said, the first thing you need to do determine is the manufacturer of your existing mat or the name brand of the metal roll-up entrance mat you are ordering.  Each manufacturer has its own color and carpet-type insert selections.  Not all options are offered by every manufacturer.
