Q: What is meant by "customizable in 3" increments"?
A: Unlike other modular tiles available in the market, our patented LockSafe connection can be cut every 3" without losing the ability to connect to adjoining tiles.
Q: How do I cut ErgoDeck tiles?
A: ErgoDeck is a robust product. While it can be cut with a utility knife, we suggest a band saw or similar cutting equipment for larger installations.
Q: Do I need to use adhesives or special tools?
A: One of the biggest benefits of the LockSafe system is a secure, dependable connection that snaps together and holds tight in-use, but zips apart for reconfiguration or replacement! No tools are necessary for the assembly or disassembly, however, a rubber mallet is sometimes used in installation to quickly "lock" the connectors. Alternatively, they can be "locked" by walking along the edges of each tile.
Q: Can I use it over grating or catwalks?
A: Yes! The heavy-duty compound and robust box-spring design performs well on grated surfaces.
Q: It prevents slips, but is it comfortable?
A: Yes! In fact, users are often surprised by just how comfortable it is underfoot. Request a sample and feel for yourself!
Q: Are there risks associated with pivoting?
A: Cleated ErgoDeck products are designed to prevent slips in extreme situations where gritted products simply won't hold up to the environment. In these hazardous areas, the dangers posed by slips and falls, far outweigh other risks. Once on a sure-footed surface, workers no longer feel the need to shuffle their feet to avoid a slip, decreasing the likelihood of knee or joint injury. For less critical environments we recommend ErgoDeck with GRITSHIELD.
Q: Will the cleats break off?
A: This was a major emphasis in the engineering and development of the product. In the end, we achieved a strength that requires hundreds of pounds of direct, horizontal pressure to reach a break point - a force that doesn't occur in-use.
Q: How resistant is it to chemicals?
A: Cleated ErgoDeck products use a PVC formula designed to withstand a wide range of petroleum and synthetic fluids. For more details refer to the Chemical Resistance Chart or if you have specific concerns please contact us or request a sample for testing.
Q: Can it be power washed?
A: Absolutely! Unlike gritted products, Cleated ErgoDeck tiles can withstand even rigorous cleaning methods like pressure washing.
Q: How are these priced compared to gritted products?
A: Believe it or not, Cleated ErgoDeck tiles not only outperform and outlast gritted products, they're also lower priced. Why? Applying grit is a secondary operation in the manufacturing process making it more costly to produce.
Q: I have a large, unique area to cover. How do I know how much product to order?
A: If you need help determining exactly how many tiles and how many feet of edging, we have field experts in your area that are happy to assist. Just inquire about our FREE Site Survey!
Q: Are the colors shown on your website the exact color I should expect to receive?
A: No, because monitors vary so there may be a slight variance in the color. If color choice is critical, we suggest that you order a sample. Due to manufacturing processes and material dye lots, color can vary, but our products fall within an industry-standard acceptable variation.
