Specifications

Usage Interior/Exterior: Interior or Exterior
Primer Required: Optional
Suitable for: Concrete, wood, brick, stone and metal

How to Apply

Fix into place with screws or glue to a reasonably dry substrate with Mastic Adhesive ChemLink M-1. One 10 oz. tube of Mastic Adhesive will fit a standard caulk gun and will fix approximately 39 feet of Safety Edge FRP.

Surface Preparation: The surface should be reasonably clean and dry if the Mastic Adhesive ChemLink M-1 is to be the only means of attaching the FRP to the substrate. Badly damaged concrete should be repaired. The Mastic Adhesive ChemLink M-1 can tolerate minor imperfections in the concrete. If application is to damp, dirty, or to an unsound surface or the surface is very cold weather, use Mastic Adhesive to bed the FRP item into place and then supplement with screws. Install screws about 2 feet apart. Drilling through the FRP is easy using a standard twist drill suitable for wood or metal. Countersinking is not required. If you need to cut the FRP product, a good quality abrasive disc, jigsaw or hacksaw can be used. The FRP material is quite tough to cut by hand, so if power tools are not readily available, please ask about our cut to size service.

Screw Size Guide:

  • To timber: No.8 x 30mm zinc plated or stainless steel screws.
  • To steel plate: No.8 x 20mm self-tapping pan head stainless steel screws or No.8 x 20mm self drilling pan head Philips zinc plated screws.
  • To concrete: No.8 x 30mm zinc plated or stainless steel impact anchors.
  • To open mesh: Stainless steel or zinc plated saddle clips and domed head bolts suitable in length for the depth of the existing treads.



Application: Preposition the piece of GRP in place to ensure the fit. Trim if needed. Install screws about 6 inches from the ends of the piece, then additional screws every 2 feet as needed. Pre-drill the FRP to the proper hole size for the screws being used. Drill holes approximately 2" in from each edge and thereafter at approximately 12-16" intervals
