Vigil Antislip

Ordering Recommendations

1. Dimensions:

Vigil Antislip Boardwalk is measured in two dimensions; length ways (A) and width (B). The thickness ranges from 11mm - 13mm dependant upon the grade required.

A:
Length of Boardwalk: There are two standard lengths; 600mm and 200mm. unlike Metal Deck, due to the greater thickness of Boardwalk, each sheet should be butted up against the next to avoid the possibility of trips occuring.

B:

Width of Boardwalk: As with Metal Deck, Boardwalk need not cover the entire width of the walkway or ramp. Personnel tend not to walk on the edges of walkways so it is recommended that Boardwalk 150mm - 300mm narrower than the overall walkway be ordered, ie. if ordering Boardwalk for an 800mm wide walkway, 600mm wide Boardwalk will provide ample protection.

 
Standard Dimensions:
A:
200mm (7.9"), 600mm (23.6")
B:
450mm (17.7"), 600mm (23.6"), 750mm (29.5"), 900mm (35.4"), 1200mm (47.2")
2. Grade:

Three standard grades exist in the range of Vigil Antislip Boardwalk; commercial, industrial and offshore. Commercial grade is normally used in areas where heavy spillage or soilage does not occur. Industrial grade is used on most external areas where there may be spillage and/or soilage from lubricants. Offshore grade is used on areas where there is a high buildup of grease or oil. This surface is the most severe and is not affected by very heavy spillage and soilage of chemicals or lubricants.

3. Colour:

The colour of Boardwalk is not as important as for Stair Nosings or Ladder Rung Covers. Safety yellow is often used to highlight the safe area, however, this often becomes very dirty from spillage or soilage. Because of this, many companies are turning to our ochre black and grey colours because they tend to hide the contamination.

4. Foundation:

The HD-3 foundation used for Boardwalk is a completely non-metallic mixture of sawdust and phenolic resin compressed under extreme pressure and heat. The result is a rigid 10mm thick base used for applications where the steel or vinyl foundations are not suitable.

5. Installation:

Vigil Antislip Boardwalk can be installed over virtually any flat surface so many installation methods can be applied. In most cases, adhesive, cup head bolts with nyloc nuts, self tapping screws or concrete anchors will fix Boardwalk. Like all other Vigil Antislip products, any drilling should be carried out from the underside of the Boardwalk through to the surface.

6. Cleaning: Because of the extreme hardness and chemical resistance of Vigil Antislip Boardwalk, cleaning can be effected with high pressure steam or water, degreasers, detergents or solvents. Stubborn soilage can be removed with a stiff deck broom. If solvents have been used, hose off with water at your earliest convenience. Do not use scrapers or wire brushes.
7. General:

Ensure that Boardwalk is installed correctly as loose sheets can be dangerous. If using electric or pneumatic tools, ensure that appropriate safety glasses and ear protection are worn.
