Review for Monument OMAT® Soldering Matt by Chris Penfould Plumbing Heating & Gas Services
6th July 2021

Good quality burn mat that actually doesn't break down and catch fire!
Flexible enough to bend into place, rigid enough to stay where you put it and not flop over the fitting.
The flap that overlaps the mat from the hole is a nice addition too so that the slot isn't vulnerable to scorching through.

Brilliant heat mat, used a fair few over the years but being able to wrap around the pipe while soldering is absolutely spot on I've used both mats and had no burn spots on skirting compared to rothenberger one which left spots after

Highly recommend as these help to protect the customers walls when soldering. The hole helps to hold the matt in place meaning we do have to hold it our shelf.

Definitely worth having if doing a lot of hot works. Cut out makes it very easy to fit around the pipe without having to hold it. Protects the customers property well while in use, but does not last quite as well as some of the traditional mats on the market.

Decent mat but after a dozen uses the mate has burned and started to fall apart very handy to use around pipes where you don’t want to burn anything very good in kitchen cupboards so you don’t burn the backboard

If your doing hot works this is a must have for your Sweat Box! Protect your customers property and avoid unsightly burn marks in difficult to reach areas. Fits snugly around the pipe and provides an essential barrier when working near combustible materials. Great quality and long lasting. Comes in a variety of sizes, highly recommend.

Great with the fact it can wrap around pipes but I found it didn’t last very long, unfortunately I had one incident were the heat traveled through the mat and damaged the skirting behind it, luckily the skirting was yet to be painted so wasn’t too much of an issue

I've had several of these for soldering in tight spaces but I much prefer the solid matts with no holes. I had one occasion where the hole in the matt let heat through and left a slight scorch mark. Other than that heat mats are a must in tight situations.

What can really be said about this soldering pad? It does exactly what it’s designed to do. I don’t normally need a heat pad but when I do it is fit for the job with the cutout for the pipework a great feature. As opposed to its black counterpart it doesn’t stain paintwork once it’s been used a few times

Hi, I'm Brendan from B. Burnside Property Maintenance. I've been asked to give you a little review on these Monument Tools Plumber's Mats. Just let you know what I've done. I've got a little mock up here because I haven't got any actual plumbing to do right this second. So we've got two different mats here. We've got the 12-inch and the six. So, we've got nice little slot slots in, made easier to work with. Bring it round, sort of isolates the area that you want to be working on.

So, obviously a 12-inch mat would work exactly the same. Let's have a little look. Obviously, what we don't want to do we don't want to affect this joint, the plastic, or the backing for your kitchen unit. Because you could be working a couple like this under your sink. Let's just hold it on there a few minutes. Just make sure its doing its job. Right, now I'm not going to put that on there longer. Right.

So, if this has done what it should have done, there shouldn't be any scorching to our backboards. This rear pipe shouldn't be affected, and neither should the plastic clip be damaged in any way. So far, that's looking pretty good. Let's put that to one side. And is this still... And there you see the pipe that we didn't want to affect is still loose. So I think, all-in-all, not a bad product. Does certainly what it says, we haven't damaged our kitchen unit, we haven't affected the other joints, or our clips, and it's done exactly what its supposed to. Held the heat away from where we don't want it, and allowed us to work exactly where we want. Thank you for listening.


18th October 2021

It's John from JPC Plumbing & Heating. And I'm giving another Tool Talk review, this time on the Monument Tools Omat pack. You get two heat mats in this pack. The 150 x 150 and the 300 x 300. Ideal. This one, when your space is a bit cramped, the larger one for obviously when it's not so difficult to put your heat mat in. Been using Monument heat mat since I was at college. They're quite robust, last a bit longer than the Rothenberger ones in my experience. Can take direct flame, but I tend not to do that because it just reduces the lifetime.

These Omats have the nice little option of this little hole that allows you to put the heat mat around the pipe work when you're doing your fittings, soldering your fittings. And yeah, the only disadvantages I've had with these is that the stitching's the first thing to go when you catch it with a flame and then it starts to fray around the edges, but that's just a minor inconvenience. Yeah. Typical Monument quality. They last a long time, in my opinion, through my experience. And yeah, these are the ones I use in my day-to-day work. So I recommend. So I'd like to thank Tool Talk for the opportunity to test these heat mats out, give a review on them. So once again, bye-bye.


18th October 2021

Hi guys, Daniel here from SAS Heating, doing a Tool Talk review on the Monument Tools Omat. Does everything you need a heat mat to do. Very protective over work surfaces. Doesn't smell too much when it burns. Very protective, touch the back end of that and not hot at all. Protects wallpaper, any wall really from being burnt. Really good. Handy about these, is they have a little flap at the back there to protect this opening and it fits over a 15mm pipe quite nice. And 22mm pipe. Does whatever you need to do. They've got a 150mm and a 300mm in the bag. Like this, this is the same got the little flap at the back. Fits nice and tight over. You ain't going to be burning anyone's wall with it. Thank you very much Tool Talk.


18th October 2021

All right guys, Dan here from SIA Property Services and I'm just doing a quick review for Expert Trades on the Monument Omat. So, I'm just getting set up to do a bit of soldering now and you can see I've used them a couple of times, but few features of them. They've got a little flap, can you see that little flap underneath? To stop obviously, with the heat, passing through because they've got the hole for the little one. Just whip this little one off so I can show you a little bit better.

Underneath it's got the little flappy bit, just stops the heat getting through when you've got it wrapped round your part. It's got a little hook, well, an eye on the top to, I suppose you can hang it, I mean I'll hang it in the van using that when I'm not using it, but also comes in if you're soldering a bit higher up a pipe. So, I've been using them, you can see, few scorch marks on it but as yet they've been pretty spot on. Although just be careful because I've just caught myself on the staple that had them fixed together originally. Bugger, but yeah, I'm not going to bore you with actual soldering but I'll show you afterwards that there's no scorch or heat marks on anything behind and I'm sure we can stitch that together after.

Right, so, typically, as with these things, I've done the joint but it was a terrible joint. Soldered and everything, just a bit messy. So, rather than being ripped by my peers I thought I'll just rig this up, get the blowtorch on, so we can see on there, around the joint, getting plenty of heat on it. And we're straight onto a plasterboard wall and not a mark on the wall so I think that shows for itself that it certainly does its job and that's probably the better way to do it than showing my terrible, messy joint. Sorry about that. But, yeah, I'm sure you can stitch this together and make a decent review of it. But thanks for Expert Traders for sending them out to me. Certainly making good use of them and, yeah, Monument Tools again, really good. Never had a problem with them yet so hope to continue to get some reviews in for them. Cheers guys.


18th October 2021

Hi, and welcome back to another Tool Talk review. This time we've got the Monument patented high-temperature mat for use of butane and propane, and this is suitable for 15mm and 22mm pipes, and what we're going to do is demonstrate how this mat protects the surfaces from, obviously, the high temperature of your blowtorch.

So this mat fits 15mm and 22mm. This time we're actually demonstrating it on a piece of 15mm copper pipe. So as you can see there, it has an overlap at the back, so when you snap it around the pipe, it gives you protection from behind. So if it was just two pieces joined together, obviously there would be a gap running down here, and the heat could just pass straight through the gap, but they've introduced this overlapping section here, so when you bring the two pieces together, you've actually got not just a butted joint, but you have an overlap at the back. So that, then, is going to prevent the heat from penetrating through this slit to the surface behind, the wall, et cetera.

So really, what happens now is we've got a vice here with a pipe in it. So just to demonstrate what you would do, so if you were soldering up against the wall, like that, on your wall... Wall came in behind. We could have the wall here, and then you'd be soldering against here. So we'll use... I've got here the Monument blowtorch. So we'll just go ahead and demonstrate how that would work. I'm trying to do this with my left hand. I'll put it into my right hand.

So there we go. I've got the flame of the torch lit, the mat's sitting against the wall, and then you would just go ahead and solder your joint as you normally would, and that's going to protect the wall from any damage.

Just set that to the side there. So this is the review for the Monument mat. As I said, it covers you for both butane and propane, 15mm, 22mm pipes, and always, as Monument products are, they're all made in Britain. And on the back here, we'll just get some information that just tells you about the shape of the overlap, et cetera, that I've mentioned, and prevents burn, and it's also got some European standards that it obviously complies with.

But that's the review for the mat. Very good, because also, this is a smaller size, as demonstrated there. We've also got the 150, which is that one, and then we've got the larger 300mm mat, so if you've got more delicate surfaces that you want to protect. Same again, you've got the overlap at the back, and you can demonstrate the overlap there, so you can see exactly what you are going to protect from that. But again, from Monument, very good products. Well engineered, well thought-out, good quality. Like to say just thanks again to Expert Trades and Tool Talk for providing this for a review. And as I said, I wouldn't hesitate to go out and purchase that once this starts to wear out, we can go and buy a replacement for it. But as I say, I've just started using the smaller one, and I've still got that bigger one, 300mm one, in the package in there. Thanks again for watching. Thanks, bye.


15th July 2021

This is Andy Bennett from Bennetts Safe Gas. Thank you Tool Talk for sending out these heat mats for me to test. These are the Monument O-Mats. We have the six inch which is 150 squared and the 12 inch which is 300 squared. Very nice design. Double stitch threaded all the way around the edge. A hole in the middle. It's exactly the same on both. We have this metal hole in the middle. This is probably screw on the wall, hook it up over. Pipework running this way. And then you have the flap so you can put it around the pipe. And so if this does get heated up it does not transfer through the hole. As you can see I have used this one already.

I was actually testing it. Concentrating heat here in one place. And there's very little damage on the back. So the wall was absolutely fine where it was in the skirting actually did not burn through. I'll just show you if this was a pipe running through. You could hook it over, close it up like that. It's coming that way through a wall. Bend it up through the wall. Very nice. Yeah not much more you can say really. The only downside is probably the stitching around the edges. This is not fire resistant in any way. That's it's only weak point. Obviously this has got heated and it still stayed together which is very nice. Yeah thank you Monument for sending this out.


21st May 2021

Hello. So another quick review on, this time, the Monument Omats I've been sent, to have a go with. So it's just the heat mats, which for me, it's been the one of the hardest things to find that's actually good. Heat mats get a fair bit of hammer to be fair, but I've had a few different ones and these are definitely the best. We've got a great little feature on them, which is for the 15mm pipe to fit through. Obviously 22mm will fit but it's more really for 15. I do a lot kitchens first fix, second fix.

So I like to put the M3 copper inside under the unit. So when you are soldering under a kitchen cupboard, it's really hard not to burn the back of the cupboard and that, and also the big one. Fantastic for that really, nice, neat joint, no burns or scorches on any of the wood. As you can see this one's had some right hammer and I've had it for about two weeks. Plenty bendable, it's all stitched up as well, so it's not fraying but this is the Rothenberger one, and I had that about a week, week and a half. And it's just absolutely knackered, look at that. There's a big hole in it. All the heat proof stuff fell out. It Goes all the way through that, look.

So you think you are soldering and not burning anything, and then you pull it away and it's just absolutely knackered the cupboard up. So yeah, really impressed. They've got the little loops on as well if you want to hook it onto anything like you soldering bag or whatever, I just put mine in my little, Monument Sweatbox. So it just fits in there nice. Yeah. Again, can't recommend it enough. Fantastic. Definitely the best I've used anyway, there might be better on market that I'm not aware of, but yeah, this is definitely my favourite for now, anyway. Nice one.


21st May 2021

My name's Sean from Gas Patrol and today we're doing a review for Tool Talk on the Monument Omats. Now they come in two sizes. They come in the large and a smaller size for getting into tight spaces. Come with a hook to hang them up or to try and support them up in some way. And they also got a nice little cut out for either 15mm or 22. Now the cutout is a very, very good design because it allows you to wrap it around pipes and hold in place without slipping down and avoid you from catching the wall. To you use it, you simply wrap it around like so and there we have it. It's not falling down like a previous mat would where you'd put it up and then it just slip down, and you have an absolute nightmare trying to get it to stay in place.

Let's give it a go and see what it's like. Okay. Let's take it off and then got quick look. And there we have it. Absolutely no scorch marks on the wall. None whatsoever. Very, very good mats and it holds in place very well. I really like it. Definitely worth buying. And thanks again, guys. Monument Omats. Thanks a lot.


21st May 2021

Hi there. My name is Andrew from ATR Plumbing and today I'm reviewing the Monument Omat that have been sent to me by Tool Talk. So it comes in a 300mm square mat and 150mm for smaller areas. And what's good about these mats is, it comes with a hole, a 15mm hole for your copper pipe work and a flap to protect the wall. For an added security, it's double stitched and it's all stitched around the outside. It also comes with this hook ring so you can hang it on a wall. What's really good about it, if you solder a pipe on a wall, like what I've set up here, normally a mat would just fall down the back of these. But because this has the 15mm hole to slide over the pipe, you can just put it like that and then solder your pipe. You haven't got to worry about this fall and burning the wall. So, it's a very good product.

A lot of the maps I've had previously, as I'll show you, they don't really stand up too well to the heat. They may be cheaper than the Monument, but they certainly don't last as long and they don't protect the customer's wall after a certain amount of time. So I'm very impressed with the Monument Omat. It's definitely the best soldering mat I've ever owned. So, yeah, great product. Again, Monument, I'm very happy.
