INSTALLATION

When installing DefendaStrip®, we would advise you to carefully consider the surface finish you are fitting DefendaStrip® to, as this will determine the best method of fixing.  Several options are available depending on application:

 

  • Screws – A 4mm exterior quality screw and plug, inserted at regular intervals with particular attention paid to where the strips connect, is suggested.  Choose a length appropriate for your application.

 

  • Metal banding – Fixing DefendaStrip® to a curved surface?  A metal banding system is suitable for this type of application. The bands should be secured where the strips connect and in the middle of the strip where there is a gap designed specifically for metal banding.

 

  • Contact adhesive – Strong adhesive can be used, providing it is suitable for use with Polypropylene and applied in accordance with Manufacturers’ recommendations to ensure an adequate level of bonding.  Please test a small area of DefendaStrip® with your chosen adhesive before proceeding with the entire installation to confirm a secure fixing.  For a successful bond to take place, the surface you are fixing to should be suitable for adhesive, clean and free of any loose debris.

We recommend when fitting DefendaStrip® that warning signs, such as the one below, are displayed clearly, in accordance with any relevant regulations.  When deployed on a linear run, signage should be at regular intervals of around 3 metres apart so they are clearly visible.  It is generally accepted that any perimeter security measures are best employed at a minimum height of 2 metres, and due care and attention is paid to any local, special conditions or obligations particularly when installing adjacent to a public highway. 

Our signage conforms to BS ISO EN 7010: 2011.
