Work Deck Installation Instructions

Or read more below –

  1. Clear the area where the matting is to be installed – Sweep up any dirt or dust and move any large portable items out of the way – e.g. portable heaters, bins, etc…
  2. Starting at where you are wanting the matting to end, lay down one Work Deck tile down, with the connecting edge (one with the “Teeth” visible) facing the direction that the rest of the matting is to be fitted.
  3. If there is to be a bevel edge along the edge where you have placed your first tile, move the tile in the width of the bevel edge, allowing space for this to be added afterwards.
  4. Lay the Work Deck mats into position, first laying one mat width along the length of the area.
  5. If the mat width is more than one tile wide, connectors will need to be used to connect a width of Work Deck to clip into the side of the first length.
  6. If the matting needs to be cut down, use a metal straight edge and safety knife and carefully cut down to size, once careful measurements have been taken.
  7. We strongly advise that Ethyl Cyanoacrylate adhesive is used to permanently join all sections of Work Deck matting, and edgings together. Although you don`t need to do this, if the matting is to be moved around regularly.
  8. Once all the matting has been installed, with connectors to all internal mat edges, lay down a strip of double sided tape on the floor surface around the matting area, where the bevel edges are to be. This prevents the matting from moving on the floor, but is not necessary if the matting is not to be kept in one place permanently.
  9. Double sided tape and Ethyl Cyanoacrylate adhesive are both available from Strata.
  10. Peel back the liner on the double sided tape.
  11. Clip the bevel edges into the matting tiles and place the bottom of the bevel edge onto the double sided tape. As above, we do recommend Ethyl Cyanoacrylate is used to attach the bevel edge to the mat, to join the sections permanently.
  12. Carry out the above stage for all edges, apart from at the corners. On each external corner, the bevel edges will need to be cut down slightly in length to make the Work Deck corners fit in. Once the bevel edges have been cut down to size, these can be clipped into the Work Deck matting and placed onto the double sided tape.
  13. Start enjoying your new Work Deck!
