The safest and easiest method to install skirting, capping & coving is with skirting tapes such as UZIN U-Tack, a superior multi-purpose contact tape that can be used to install a huge range of lino, vinyl and PVC products.
UZIN U-Tack skirting tape does not become brittle, providing a secure and extremely durable bond. The installation is also quicker, cleaner and most importantly solvent free. The product therefore does not require any special PPE (personal protective equipment) or work protection measures. With solvent based adhesives you would need to protect your skin and airways to exposure of the adhesive and its fumes.
Many solvent based contact adhesives are also highly flammable whereas with skirting tapes there are no explosion risks for the installer during application. Due to the health and safety risks for both installers and clients the use of solvent based contact adhesives are now becoming banned from hospitals and other sensitive environments.
Some skirting tapes such as UZIN U-Tack have been awarded EC1 Plus® certification providing the highest possible protection against emissions and guarantees excellent indoor air quality. Certified products are guaranteed to contain no solvents, resins or softeners and meet the guidelines of sustainable building initiatives such as LEED and BREEAM.
