When installing Anti-Slip panels, standard personal protective equipment should be worn as a minimum.
These include a dust mask, safety goggles, heavy-duty gloves and overalls.
Dry fit all Anti-Slip panels to ensure that they fit freely and that they sit flat down on to the surface.
Drill the fixing locating holes in all the panels. Whilst individual circumstances will vary, the following can be used as a guide:
INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE
The items are generally glued and screw fixed.
Adhesive Mastic is ideal since it will make up minor deviations in the substrate and prevent the panels drumming or rocking.
The Adhesive Mastic should be applied to sound, clean dry surfaces if it is to be the only method of fixing in lightly trafficked areas
If application is to damp, dirty or friable surfaces or in very cold weather, use the Adhesive Mastic to bed the Anti-Slip panel into place and then always screw fix.
Screw fixings are generally made at about 600mm intervals.
The Anti-Slip material is quite tough to cut so if too much trimming is envisaged, please ask about our cut to size service.
-If required, the Anti-Slip panels can be trimmed on site to suit using an industrial jigsaw and appropriate cutting blades (Bosch “T101 A1F” or similar are ideal).
If mechanical fixing is required, the following may be used as a guide.
- To timber: No.8 x 30mm zinc plated or stainless steel screws.
- To steel plate: No.8 x 20mm self-tapping pan head Pozi stainless steel screws or No.8 x 20 mm self drilling pan head Philips zinc plated screws.
- To concrete: No. 8 x 30 mm zinc plated or stainless steel impact anchors (Hilti HPS-1 or similar).
- To open mesh: Stainless steel or zinc plated saddle clips and domed head bolts suitable in length for the depth of the existing treads.
When drilling holes in the panels we do not recommend countersinking
