Installing Self Adhesive Guard Rite Fire Retardant Disposable Matting products.
Rolls are reverse wound, individually wrapped in protective paper, boxed and identified by part number.
It is recommended that surfaces to be protected are clean of dust, debris, dirt, excess carpet pile, and liquids. Remove all packaging from material, and find leading edge of roll.
With 1 to 2 people holding the roll, 1 person carefully removes approximately 1 yard (1 meter)of material from the leading edge, evenly across full width to ensure easy release.
Fix this length onto the surface to be protected. The roll can now be rolled out on the floor by hand or foot, smoothing the material afterward (a good option would be to use a bristle brush or one's hands to smooth the material down).
Once the desired length has been applied, cut with a pair of scissors or sharp bladed knife.
When protecting larger open public areas the material should be applied in the same manner as above, but please note that the material should be overlapped by from 3 to 4 inches (75 to 100 mm) to ensure totally safe protection.
Any repairs or maintenance can be carried out by affixing a small piece of material over the top of any small rips or cuts.
For removal, simply lift away and pull back the material on itself to ensure an easy clean release from protected surface. You will note that dirt, dust, spillages and debris are removed at the same time, helping to reduce final clean up time.
Self-adhesive products can be applied to surfaces with ease using the Guard Rite Fire Retardant Disposable Matting applicator.
With a twin roller system and firm weight, the applicator provides adequate pressure and smooth rolling. The spring release system enables quick and efficient roll changes, whilst the removable handle provides a simple storage solution.
