Health and safety at work
Proper professional work not only requires perfect materials and tool quality – factors such as safety at work must also be observed.
Statistically, most accidents take place in the home or during DIY activities. Commercial activities must comply with health and safety stipulations and the legal framework. What applies for professionals regarding safety should also be conscientiously taken to heart by amateur DIY enthusiasts.
Always wear close-fitting clothing, gloves and
Always protect your eyes when sawing and sanding!
Protect yourself from noise pollution!
Circular saws, for example, have a sound level of above 100 dB and can damage hearing.
All tools are to be used in compliance with their producer’s instructions. The following tools are required for the efficient laying of the profiles:
- Folding rule or tape measure
- Spirit level
- Carpenter’s square
- Cordless screwdriver
- Electric jigsaw
- ideally: electrical crosscut and mitre saws with hard-metal saw blades
We recommend a sub-assembly made of galvanised steel pipes. Alternatively, wood, aluminium, concrete or plastic can be used. The minimum width of the supporting profiles is 30 mm.
To our range of sub-structures
Mount the first floor board exactly as shown above.
Ensure that you use the right order and that the screws are inserted vertically. In the case of a sub-structure made of galvanised steel pipes it is essential to use the screws provided (5.5 x 32 and 4.2 x 45). In the case of wood or stone please use Spax Torx screws (5.0 x 60).
When laying the aluminium boards ensure a distance of at least 10 mm to fixed building structures. It is recommended that boards are laid with a gradient of at least 5 mm/m to ensure that rainwater can run off.
Disposal of leftover pieces
Aluminium is 100% recyclable. Leftover pieces can be delivered to scrap metal merchants or professionally disposed of. In addition, larger quantities may be returned to the supplier free-of-charge.
Cleaning and care
Simply clean the high-quality surface coating with sufficient lukewarm water with some detergent. Remove stubborn stains with a soft sponge or a soft car brush. Avoid cleaning in bright sunlight.
