Tde’s Dirt-Trapping Mats

This article first appeared in the Railway-News Magazine Issue 4 2023.

Texat decor engineering AG (Tde) is a Swiss-based provider of interior solutions for the transport sector.

It offers a wide range of bespoke dirt-trapping flooring and carpeting solutions, and many of its products can be found today in operational rolling stock across Europe, the Middle East and America.

The company’s strengths lie in the high degree of customisation it offers, even in small production runs, and the quality of its products.

One of Tde’s most popular products is its entrance dust mat, which is currently used by customers including Swiss Federal Railways (SBB), Swiss regional and national operators Matterhorn-Gotthard-Bahn (MGB), Montreux-Oberland Bahn (MOB), Regio-Verkehr Bern-Solothurn (RBS), VR in Finland, DB and DB-Regio in Germany and Leo Express in the Czech Republic.

Christoph Zürni, Managing Director, Sales and Marketing, at Tde said:

“Engineered in partnership with a renowned Swiss carpet manufacturer, Tde dust mats are suitable for trains operating in all manner of climates and environments.

“Whether it’s the damp leaves and mud that come with a British autumn, snow in Scandinavia, a tropical rainstorm in Malaysia or dust from a summer sand storm in the Sahara, our mats ensure train interiors see minimal dirt and water brought inside.”

High Absorption

Tde dust mats are known for their high absorption of dirt and moisture. This is achieved due to a manufacturing process that creates tufted mats, meaning the loops are closed at the top, trapping and retaining moisture and dirt inside.

Zürni points out:

“Many of our customers have reported valuable savings thanks to the use of our mats, as they have saved them cleaning and maintenance costs.”


Tde’s mats are manufactured to meet each customer’s specific needs. This includes geometrically adapting the design to fit a vehicle’s entrance area, and/or taking into account whether the customer wants to clamp the mats under the sill profile or the side panel trim.

Coloured inlays can also be incorporated for visual area marking, plus the mats are also font laserable and logos or specific designs can be created using intarsia.

Long Service Life

The entrance dust mats are also praised for their long service life. This is due to the manufacturer’s highquality workmanship, which ensures the end product’s extreme durability.
