Installation and maintenance of rubber tiles
1. Installation instructions for rubber tiles on gravel
Stages of work:
Excavate according to the mounting dimensions to a depth of 10-20 cm.
1.2. Foundation and structure:
Depending on the expected amount of weight that will have to support, is recommended to prepare a background permeable , able to support this weight. The volume of displaced soil will be replaced with gravel. This layer must be constructed of gravel with broken grained sand or gravel 0 / 35, or combination of these . The layer thus formed ,must be arranged a bed of sand or grit ballast 2/5 . Its thickness should be 2-4 cm , with a bias that matches the pavement . This layer should be smoothed with a plank.
Do not step on the sand bed arranged . Installing rubber tile is made by simply placing them with coupling pins . To avoid moving of the pavement this must be fitted between the boards of rubber . After installation of rubber flooring ,this can be immediately loaded.
2. Installation of rubber tiles on a solid layer:
Stages of work:
The surface which follows to be bonded with rubber tile must be dry , free of dust and dirt. If there are problems of inequality ,itis mandatory the prior leveling.
Then prepare adhesive bonding. The adhesive can,t be applied on the surface of fresh concrete . Rubber adhesive can be applied using a brush or a spatula on the lower edge of the plate. If you apply adhesive to the entire surface ,this prevents water drainage and cause ice formation and deformation floors . The consumption of the adhesive comercialized by our company is 0.2 kg/m2. The bearing capacity of the floor depends on the base layer , in case of overload ,the rubber floor won,t be deformed . The change in volume due to temperature variations during installation, must be taken into account . To avoid the moving of pavement ,this must be fit between boards of rubber .
3.Ecological pavement maintenance instructions (rubber tiles ):
Should be cleaned weekly with broom and water jet:
Carbon deposit can be removed with LinaxPlu
Rubber floor is completely resistant to the saturated salt solution and is characterized by moderate strength to hypochlorite solution 5 %
In case of soilling with petrol or diesel , petrol or diesel stains should be removed immediately from the pavement surface
Rubber flooring should be protected from any source of flame which can generate the fire
Methods to control the paving slabs:
For areas covered with rubber pavements ,these should be checked monthly as follows:
correct combination of rubber tiles
