Vigil Antislip

Ordering Recommendations

1. Dimensions:

Vigil Antislip Vinyl Deck is measured in two dimensions; length ways (A) and width (B).

A:
Length of Vinyl Deck: There are two standard lengths; 600mm and 200mm. When laid, each sheet of Vinyl Deck can be spaced up to 150mm from the next sheet because on a straight walk way it is only necessary for personnel to achieve either heel or toe contact to avoid accidents. By using 200mm sheets, there is less antislip required per square metre, however, installation can take longer to perform.

B:

Width of Vinyl Deck: As with Metal Deck, Vinyl Deck need not cover the entire width of the walkway or ramp. personnel tend to walk within 100mm from the edges of walkways so it is recommended that Vinyl Deck 150mm - 300mm narrower than the overall walkway be ordered, ie. if ordering Vinyl Deck for an 800mm wide walkway, 600mm wide Vinyl Deck 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: Four standard grades exist in the range of vigil antislip Vinyl Deck; barefoot, commercial, industrial and offshore. Barefoot grade is specifically designed for use in hospitals or nursing homes where a very fine grade is required for areas where commercial grade is too abrasive for sensitive bare feet. 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 Vinyl Deck 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, Vinyl Deck is available in a range of colours to suit the existing decor.

4. Foundation:

The foundation used for Vinyl Deck is a bench top quality, 1.5mm flexible vinyl.

5. Installation:

Vigil Antislip Vinyl Deck can be installed over virtually any flat surface. A two part water soluble flexible sealant adhesive or contact adhesive are the best methods to install Vigil Antislip Vinyl Deck.

6. Cleaning: Because of the extreme hardness and chemical resistance of Vigil Antislip Vinyl Deck, cleaning can be effected with high pressure steam or water, degreasers or detergents. Stubborn soilage can be removed with a stiff deck broom. Although the antislip surface can cope with solvents, the vinyl foundation cannot so it cannot be used to clean Vinyl Deck. Do not use scrapers or wire brushes.
7. General:

Ensure that Vinyl Deck is installed correctly as loose sheets can be dangerous. Ensure that the adhesive coverage is to the edges of the Vinyl Deck otherwise it will be liable to chip.

If using solvent based adhesives, ensure that the area is well ventilated and appropriate filter masks or respirators are worn.
