Before the installation process can start, it is important that the surface is suitable. This means that it should be free from loose debris, even and any holes or bumps have been addressed. If the surface is concrete, you can undertake a patch repair with a step edge repair kit.
When the surface is ready, the stair tread covers should be dry fitted to make sure that they are a good fit for the area you need. They should fit flush to the surface. If needed, you can trim any excess for a better fit. If you do decide to trim the material, you will need either a 4mm diamond blade skill saw or a 1mm blade angle grinder. Make sure that if you do use any cutting equipment you wear suitable goggles and gloves.
Fixing Kit Application
Using the fitting kit, carefully take the gap filling adhesive and apply a 6mm bead around the edge of the stair tread covers about 25mm from the edge. You may need a larger bead depending on the surface. Next, begin at the bottom left corner and apply the adhesive at an angle and then back down again to create a peak and trough pattern. Repeat this pattern over the full width of the material to ensure good coverage. It is recommended that you apply the adhesive with a skeleton gun.
With the adhesive adequately applied, press the panel securely to the substrate to distribute the adhesive and enable a strong bond to form. Depending on the size of bead that you used, the sheet will be elevated by 1mm to 1.5mm. Once fitted in place, the material will be fully bonded within around an hour.
On each side of the stair tread cover you will now need to drill two holes, around 60mm from the back edge and 50mm from the side. For a larger sized tread, you may need to have more fixing points which are located in the centre.
The installation process is now complete, and it is safe to use.
