How to install the QA1 Profile
The QA1 profile is a heavy-duty option, designed for commercial and industrial environments. Therefore, correct installation is vital to its performance. We recommend that you access the installation substrate fully before fitting. It should be sound and reasonably level. Any remedial work must take place before installation.
This specific profile should always be screw-fixed. This ensures stability and minimises the risk of tripping or injury. We also recommend that the profile be bedded with a suitable adhesive to reduce or remove the potential rattling sound that can be created. This also provides peace of mind for every user and ensures the soundest installation possible.
We recommend using No.8 (M5) wood screws with countersunk heads. These will best suit the standard pre-drilled holes provided on our profiles. Make sure to always use stainless steel screws or bolts/nuts when fixing to a steel plate.
The adhesive you choose should be suitable for external use. Always use in accordance with the manufacturer's recommendations. When only fixing with adhesive, we recommend you use a product with high-strength mechanical properties which has been specifically designed for structural bonding. Cartridge adhesives that are typically used for fixing decorative nosings such as Gripfill or F32 are not recommended.
