Simple to apply permanently to any surface, Vinyl Deck can easily be cut to fit the site without impairing it’s anti-slip properties or precipitating delamination. Whether used in customer areas or in wet areas of canteens and changerooms, it will not fade, crack, lift or delaminate.
Vinyl Deck is also suitable for use on ramps and walkways, which can be the source of serious injuries if left untreated. Due to it’s inherent flexibility, Vinyl Deck is also ideal for use on odd shaped or curved surfaces.
Vigil Antislip Vinyl Deck is measured in two dimensions; length ways (A) and width (B).
Standard Dimensions A 200mm 7.9″ 600mm 23.6″ B 450mm 17.7″ 600mm 23.6″ 750mm 29.5″ 900mm 35.5″ 1200mm 47.2″ Standard Grades Barefoot, Commercial, Industrial, Offshore
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.
Vinyl Deck is available in four standard grades, each with a specific application in mind.
GRADE APPLICATION Barefoot 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 Apply in areas where heavy spillage or soilage does not occur. Industrial Designed for external areas where there may be spillage and/or soilage from lubricants. Offshore Ideal for 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.
Safety yellow is often used to highlight the safe area, however, in areas subject to spillage or soilage, a darker colour may be suitable. Choose from a range of colours to suit the existing decor and planned usage.

How we can offer a 10 Year Replacement Warranty
As innovators and pioneers in the safety industry, it is important that we lead by example.
Our production manuals contain the QA/QC requirements for every process. As a basic rule, every production team member acts as a buyer and a seller. When a process is completed, the person who conducted that process becomes the internal seller of the product to that stage. It is then passed on to the next person in the production process – the internal buyer – who checks all specifications, etc. to ensure the previous process was carried out in accordance with requirements.
The product continues through the production process that way, being rigorously checked by the ‘internal buyer’ at every stage.
Every process is also signed off by the operator on the Job Card. This ensures quality is maintained and checked throughout all processes rather than just at the packaging stage. All raw materials are checked upon receipt, resins are tested for hardness and so on.
When the products are completed, the Job Card number becomes the Warranty Number and this is stamped on the underside of every product so it can be traced should there ever be a future issue.
The 10 Year Replacement Warranty Certificate provided with every Class 1 is signed by the Managing Director and the Production Manager. The Job Cards are archived for a minimum of 10 years so they may be recovered and the production process traced if necessary.
Please note: Vinyl Deck Warranty may vary subject to Grade requested and level of pedestrian traffic.

|Tools:||2 litre containers (open plastic).
Acetone or similar solvent.
25mm masking tape.
3mm notch trowel.
|Safety Clothing:||Safety glasses.
|Adhesives:||Gripit 3810,2 part sealant adhesive.|
- Thoroughly clean the floor where the Vinyl Deck is to installed with acetone soaked rags.
- Wipe over the back of the Vinyl Deck with an acetone soaked rag.
- Lay the Vinyl Deck on the floor in the desired position.
- Apply masking tape to the floor as close to all edges of the Vinyl Deck as allowable.
- Remove the Vinyl Deck from the floor and lay it upside-down elsewhere.
- Pour approximately one litre of paste and a proportional amount of powder into the mixing container, (1 litre : 2 square metres approx.).
- Using a mixing stick, thoroughly mix the paste with the powder for approximately 5 minutes. Spread any lumps of powder.
- Pour a proportion of adhesive onto the floor where the Vinyl Deck is to be installed.
- Using a figure 8 motion with the trowel, spread the adhesive evenly over the floor taking care to cover up to the tape.
- After a section is trowelled, butt one edge of the appropriate sheet of Vinyl Deck in the desired position while lifting the opposing edge up from the floor.
- Slowly lower the raised edge while gently patting the Vinyl Deck onto the floor from the opposite end.
- When the whole sheet is in place, apply pressure (not too much) to the edges to ensure that the adhesive covers the floor to the edges of the Vinyl Deck.
- Remove the tape from the edges.
- After approximately one hour, run a Stanley knife around the edge of the Vinyl Deck and remove any excess adhesive.
- Ensure the Vinyl Deck is not touched or wet for eight hours.
- When uncured, adhesive is water soluble. If cured use acetone to clean tools.
