To avoid any unnecessary damage to our equipment here are some helpful tips you can use during your next project.
When placing your order please tell our rental staff how you intend to use the platforms. This can help us make sure you are provided with enough equipment to make your project a success.
If you are putting a heavy weight on the platform, please let us know. Steeldeck® platforms can take 200lbs/ft² of evenly distributed load (a 6-legger can take 312lbs/ft²), but if a heavy point load will be applied, double skinning maybe required. We are not just being nosy, more information expedites the order process, and will save you time in the long run.
The paint used on the plywood tops of the decks is a black acrylic (Insl-x Aqua Lock). If you are painting the tops of our decks another color for your event, please repaint them back to black with the Aqua Lock paint otherwise a repainting fee will be incurred. Be sure to tape the frames so they do not get coated.
When taping something to our decks (carpet, Marley, etc.) use High Tack/Low Tack tape with the low tack side to the plywood surface. Any other kind of tape can cause damage to the plywood and the platform may incur a re-topping charge.
The nuts and bolts used to connect our decks are metric (M10x60). We provide nuts and bolts with every order, so don’t worry!
If you have any questions about installation or about our products in general, do not hesitate to contact our rental staff.
Our experienced staff is always happy to offer advice or technical information.
