Embracing change with Electric Vehicle Charging Bays

11th December 2019by aperturemarketingukNews

With an ever-growing concern for climate change, people in the UK and globally have the option to drive more economically – hybrid and electric vehicles are becoming increasingly popular in the UK car market. 

According to a recent study carried out by Zap-Map, a company which monitors the UK’s electric vehicle charging infrastructure, there are approximately 4,800 locations which provide nearly 7,500 chargers for electric vehicles. These figures are steadily increasing with, on average, 700 new sites year on year. At this consecutive increase of electric vehicle charging bays, it poses a waiting game until the charging stations outnumber the UK’s 8,500 fuel filling stations.

Riggotts, a company that embraces innovation and is at the forefront of its industry, has installed over 1000 electric vehicle charging bays and continues to install more as they become more in demand. 

To compete with the growing demand for electric vehicle charging bays, Riggotts provide national coverage for multiple clients, ranging from major supermarket car parks to motorway services.

Using clearly defined line markings, Riggotts make sure the line markings they deliver not only stand out but make a lasting impression on the customer, whether it be simple bays or a custom-designed layout.

Will electric vehicle charging bays be a big part of the future? It’s sure looking that way. So why not get ahead and contact Riggotts today for your free, no-obligation quote via freephone or email.

The Importance of Correct Surface Preparation

2nd December 2019by aperturemarketingukNews

When it comes to line markings, surface coating or any of the products Riggotts offer, there is one common denominator; surface preparation – there is nothing more important than the correct surface prep’.

The Riggotts team have an array of products and services which offer a comprehensive range of surface preparation methods, vital in achieving a durable and permanent result.

Some of the innovative surface preparation methods Riggotts use comprise of both the latest in industry and traditional techniques which include; Damage-free hydro blast treatment, Captive shot blast line removal, Captive shot blast surface preparation, Scabbling and surface scarifying and Diamond grinding.

All of Riggotts surface preparation methods have been trialled and tested to make sure they not only provide excellent adhesion but present a damage-free finished product.

In collaboration with Clean and Retrieve Ltd, Riggotts have access to their state-of-the-art captive shot blaster. With both enhanced portability and performance in mind, the specially designed machine is smaller, more efficient and more powerful than others on the market today – providing you with the best possible results.

No matter what surface or object you are coating, it’s always essential to prepare the surface first, to ensure that the end result is as good as can be.

The latest example of surface preparation is a multi-story car park in Heathrow, London. The client required the installation of pedestrian walkways – improving the health and safety of the car park and directing its users to the exits.

Before the surface could be lined, it required the correct preparation; this meant that the Clean and Retrieve state-of-the-art captive shot blaster was needed to prepare the surface – improving the longevity and performance of the paint.

If you require specialist surface preparation or need advice from the line marking experts, contact us today via freephone or email for your free quote.

Using Optical Illusions for Car Park Line Markings

27th November 2019by aperturemarketingukNews

During 2019, a survey carried out by RAC Insurance, found that two-thirds of British motorists have experienced damage to their vehicles after parking in a car park and as much as 35% of us had their cars damaged at least once.

To tackle such high numbers, Riggotts may have the solution. “Sausage Bays” or “Fishfinger Bays” are the answer. Through the use of optical illusion, the specially designed bays create the illusion that the bays are smaller than they are – making people take greater care when parking their cars.

Where you’d find a regular bay line, you a see 100mm gap in its place with two lines either side. Creating this illusion has had a dramatic effect on the carparks efficiency, quality of parking and reduced the number of accidents in the car parks that have implemented this change.

Following the success, a number of clients asked Riggotts to carry out the new car park line markings to their premises – mainly to highly trafficked areas such as superstores and multi-story car parks.

Taking an active approach to updating and embracing new car park line markings, not only aids in professionality but gives the premises a modern, fresh layout – encouraging more people to use the new safety improved spaces.

To see how Riggotts can help you develop and implement your ideas for a safer, efficient car park get in touch today – by email or freephone.

25th November 2019by aperturemarketingukNews

According to the HSE, there were more than 69,208 injuries to employees reported under RIDDOR last year, that’s 28.2 million working days lost due to workplace injuries and a £15 billion estimated cost of injuries and ill health from current working conditions.

Preventing these workplace injuries should be of paramount importance in order to safeguard your employees and customers. The team at Riggotts have specific solutions which can provide extra defence against workplace injuries.

Through the use of line marking, you can clearly define the areas you deem unsafe or could pose a potential injury if not outlined correctly. These areas can be identified in many ways, for example, colour coding or cross-hatching.

Health and safety is just one benefit of correctly used and positioned line markings. The Riggotts team can provide all manors of products, from highly reflective to slip-resistant, or both – they can provide.

Working internationally, Riggotts can not only provide the best quality products but offer their services directly to you without the use of subcontractors to maintain the rigorous quality control their customers deserve.

A returning client in Aryshire requested internal works to be carried out at there warehouse. However, due to surface complications, the paint could not be guaranteed the longevity it would typically provide. Using their specialist captive shot blaster (a machine developed by Riggotts), they prepared the surface giving it the qualities for perfect adhesion and the recipe for long-lasting line-markings.

In total, the Riggotts team carried out a total of 450 meters squared of solid area, 337m of 100mm yellow lining, 150m of 150mm yellow lining, 2357m of 200mm yellow lining and 964 metres squared of sealer – of which was all prepared by their captive shot blasting machine.

Delivering underground car park line markings for Morrisons

31st October 2019by aperturemarketingukNews

Car parking spaces. An ever-growing issue in the big cities and towns of the UK, finding a space to park in can be a nightmare – especially when you’re in a rush.

With space for car parks being a big issue in London and other cities, there’s only one option – go down. Yes, that’s right, underground carparks are on the rise yet again – giving the UK public more access to areas which previously could not provide enough parking. 

But what does this mean and how can it benefit you? The advantage is that the precious space that is available in the big cities can be preserved or utilised for other purposes. For example, development and going further underground is an effective way of utilising space which isn’t used – protecting the skyline and preventing an ever-growing number of highrise buildings.

Working underground is nothing new for Riggotts, we’ve been delivering underground car park line markings since they started becoming more popular. Riggotts don’t just offer line markings; we can design parking plans, which improve efficiency and the safety in the carpark itself – minimising the risk of injury for all its users.

The latest project where we carried out underground car park line markings was for Morrisons at their superstore in Crowborough.

In total, the underground car park line markings consisted of 12 arrows

484 metres squared of solid areas, 17 disabled logos, eight 600×100, 16 600×200, nine letters/numbers, 295 meters squared of MMA, 15 parent and child logos and 2,454 meters of underground car park line markings.

All the above underground car park line markings were completed using a mixture of Thermoplastic and MMA paint. Both chosen for their durable, slip-resistant and reflective properties. Perfect for underground parking conditions.

Contact the line marking experts here today, if you need your car park lines refreshing. Alternatively, if your underground car park is a new development, we can accommodate for parking plans and deliver lines of the best quality using the best products on time and to budget.

Filling up the forecourt with Thermoplastic Line Markings

30th October 2019by aperturemarketingukNews

With over 37.3 million vehicles on the UK roads today, filling up at a total of 8,422 petrol filling stations, maintenance is vital in order to support health and safety for the station’s employees and customers.

An effective way of ensuring the safety of the people working or using the petrol filling stations is Thermoplastic Line Markings. Using state-of-the-art materials and machinery, Riggotts Line Marking has a wealth of experience completing these crafty projects.

As well as the years of experience, Riggotts is also SPA certified to carry out works on any petrol filling station forecourt. With all crews and operatives having to undergo rigorous training.

The latest forecourt project was for returning client Sainsburys at their superstore in Nottingham. The thermoplastic line markings were set throughout the entire forecourt and surrounding roadways – improving traffic flow and the safety of its users.

In total, the works carried out on the Sainsbury’s petrol filling station was Forty-three arrows, 155 600×100, 42 600×200, four give way triangles, 129 numbers/letters, one parent and child logo, 86m2 solid areas, Three speed-roundels, Over 1200m in thermoplastic line markings.

When applied correctly, thermoplastic line markings can provide a safer environment for the people using the roads, parks or walkways where the product can be found. The paint is highly durable, reflective and slip-resistant, due to its coarse finish. The product reduces the chance of near misses on the forecourt where petrol, diesel or other oily liquid spillages can occur.

With the products enhanced reflective properties, the thermoplastic line markings guide the traffic at night – again reducing the risk of injury on or around the forecourt.

So, if you need a certified and experienced crew at your petrol filling station, and are in-need of thermoplastic line markings, contact the line marking experts by phone or email today.

Lining around laundry in Single Pack Epoxy for Bourne Textile Services

25th October 2019by aperturemarketingukNews

One thing Riggotts Line Marking strives for is quality of service.

This is the bedrock on which riggotts stands. After all, without spectacular and professional customer service, they would not have been able to build the customer relationships which have enabled Riggotts to grow.

Keeping with this notion, Riggotts provided Birmingham-based company, Bourne Textile Services, with excellent quality line markings highlighting the pedestrian walkways; improving health and safety while ensuring a dedicated, safe walkway for employees.

Part of the Johnsons Service group PLC, Bourne Textile Services is one of the UK’s leading and largest high-volume laundry/linen hire companies – delivering and collecting over five million items of linen a week throughout the year.

With high footfall and a range of machinery throughout the premises, a durable, long-lasting and vibrant product was required.

In this instance, the Riggotts Paint Crew used Single Pack Epoxy paint – a staple product that has proved its value.

In order to improve adhesion, the crew prepared the surface using their state-of-the-art captive shot-blasting machines before the single pack epoxy was applied – improving the Single Pack Epoxy paint’s adhesion and longevity.

In total, the Riggotts crew carried out 840 metres of Yellow Lining and put down 33 Pedestrian Logos – providing safer walkways for Bourne’s employees.

‘The proof is in the pudding.’

Continuing with the notion that Riggotts value customer care above all else, here’s what the head of engineering at Bourne Textile Services had to say:

“On the 12th of October, you painted our factory gangway lines, and the quality of your work is superb! 

“At our end, we were a bit disorganised. However, your guys took it all in their stride and pressed on and did a fantastic job.”

Distribution Line Markings for VolkerFitzpatrick

15th October 2019by aperturemarketingukNews

One of the UK’s leading engineering and construction companies contacted Riggotts to carry out essential line marking at one of their ongoing projects at a distribution centre.

VolkerFitzpatrick operates in the civil engineering, building and rail industries as a contractor, turning over more than £500m per year and employing over 650 people throughout the UK. As a returning client, VolkerFitzpatrick knew what to expect from the Riggotts team: A high-quality product, on time and to budget.

The project in Riggotts’ sights was a distribution centre, requiring new line marking in both thermoplastic and single pack epoxy spray.

The line marking was required to be clearly defined, durable and well laid out in order to create a safer workspace for employees/customers and improve efficiency in and around the centre. Within the distribution centre grounds, the lines would be heavily trafficked by HGVs and large vehicles, however, the high quality of the product used by the Riggotts operatives meant there wouldn’t be a problem with longevity.

In total, the experienced Riggotts crew completed; 27 disabled logos, 17 EV logos, 16 1200mm letters/numbers, 30 pedestrian logos, 23m2 solid areas, 10,919m 100mm white lining, 22m 300mm white lining, 200m 100mm white hatching, 618m 100mm yellow lining and 571m 100mm yellow hatching. All the lining was carefully carried out to the maximum efficiency to improve the product durability.

With the customer’s best interests at heart, Riggotts managed to complete the required works on time and to budget while providing the distribution centre with crucial line marking which boosted health and safety throughout the site and improved efficiency for the densely trafficked areas.

Thermoplastic trailer reaches bigger heights at Arndale Shopping Centre

3rd October 2019by aperturemarketingukNews

With an ever-growing number of vehicles on the road and a less than even number of car parks in the UK, a well maintained and lined car park is essential – two-thirds of British motorists experience some kind of damage to their vehicles after parking in a car park.

Research suggests that if a car park isn’t maintained properly and no lines are there to help guide the general public, a higher number of accidents occur. This shows that a well-maintained car park not only proves to be a safer place for customers/employees but can reduce the number of people having accidents.

Returning client, Makers Construction, enlisted Riggotts to carry out thermoplastic line markings at the Arndale Shopping Centre in Eastbourne.

The Riggotts team immediately ran into a problem. The car park was multi-storey, meaning that the Thermoplastic lining trucks wouldn’t fit due to height, length and their wide turning circle.

Keeping with the statement “Riggotts can complete any job on time and to budget” the Riggotts team got to work.

Knowing the project required thermoplastic lining, they commissioned a state if the art towable Thermoplastic trailer made especially for the Riggotts team.

This custom-built trailer is easily manoeuvrable and, more importantly, is able to fully access a multi-storey car park with ease, fitting under the car parks height restriction of 1.8 metres (when towed by its Mitsubishi L200 companion).

Using the made to measure trailer allowed the Riggotts thermoplastic team to complete a total of 44 give way markers, 47 individual numbers/letters, nine parent and child logos, 22 pedestrian logos, 86 metres squared of solid white, 2919 metres of100mm white line, 90 metres if 100mm white hatching and 156 metres of 100mm yellow line.

This precision lining will allow the car parks users to manoeuvre their cars more easily, and more importantly, the car park is now a safer environment thank to the use of clean, clear line-markings.

Health & Safety Line Marking for Travis Perkins

27th September 2019by aperturemarketingukNews

With health and safety becoming of ever-growing importance in the workplace, making your site safe for both customers and employees is now more important than ever.

In 2018 alone, over 30 people were fatally injured in the UK from incidents involving moving traffic in the workplace.

Riggotts provide simple solutions to divide foot traffic from motorized vehicles to help prevent injuries such as these.

Taking the health and safety of your workforce and customers seriously is an essential part of running any successful modern business and returning client, Travis Perkins, certainly acknowledges this.

Travis Perkins enlisted Riggotts to redesign their floor plan and help create a safer workspace at their Harlow branch through the use of specialist white lining.

The client tasked Riggotts with improving and enhancing the white markings on their concrete surfaces, improving the contrast to help them stand out in poorer lighting – ensuring that both pedestrians and motor traffic can see them in an effort to reduce risk of injury.

Riggotts devised a solution, a black base was laid onto the surface prior to newly refreshed white lines to create a bolder contrast and improved visibility.

Working closely with the client allowed Riggotts to achieve a more comprehensive understanding of what the client needed, whilst delivering the works on time and to budget.

The freshly designed line-markings were carried out in Single-Pack epoxy paint to ensure durability and longevity.

In total, the Riggotts team put down a total of six arrows, 208 metres squared of solid colours, 3315 metres of 100mm wide lines, 382 metres of hatching, 138 letters/numbers, 11 pedestrian logos and one accessible parking bay.

Delivering new car park lines for Stoneacre

16th September 2019by aperturemarketingukNews

With an ever-increasing population and an ever-growing need for cars, the UK is quickly running out of car park spaces for us to park them all. 

In 2018, there were 37.9 million licenced vehicles in the UK alone. 

According to the British Parking Association, drivers spend an average of 5.9 minutes looking for a place to park their car with 44 per cent saying they find it a stressful experience. 

Riggotts National Line Marking is here to ensure that car parks remain clearly lined and accessible for all users. Our planning team can also develop specialist line plans for any car park – maximising their capacity and profitability.

Longtime client, Stoneacre Ltd (a family-owned business that has steadily evolved to become one of the UK’s fastest-growing and most successful car dealers), required new and restorative works at their York branch. 

In total, four arrows, 15 metres squared of solid colour, four accessible parking bays, 192 letters/numbers and 954 metres of 100mm lining were played onto the car park.

Stonacre York now has an accessible car park with clear and concise markings which reflect the business’ high standard of quality and customer care.

The Riggotts team used Single Pack Epoxy Paint, for the project, a material known for its durability, vibrancy in colour and longevity.

If you are interested in updating your car park with refreshed line markings and an improved line plan to increase its capacity, get in touch with the Riggotts team today through our contact page here.

Growing health and safety with Single Pack Epoxy and Colour Plus

11th September 2019by aperturemarketingukNews

Openfield Agriculture Ltd, a leading British grain marketing and arable input co-operative contacted Riggotts to carry out works at their Grantham facility.

Knowing that heavy-duty machinery and vehicles would be operating throughout the premises, we knew the product we used needed to be heavy-duty too.

The work was carried out in Single Pack Epoxy paint and Colour Plus paint – a single pack high-build surface coating which incorporates a UV-stable modified acrylic resin. It is these properties which increase the durability and longevity of the paint.

In total, Riggotts installed 1326 meters of lining, 12 pedestrian logos, 68 letters/numbers, two forklift truck logos, one accessible bay logo, 17 arrows and 54 meters squared of solid areas.

When Openfield asked for walkways which stand out, we knew just what to offer, Colour Plus. This was just one-way Riggotts provided a service like no other.

Riggotts return to the floor at Snowhill Car Park

30th August 2019by aperturemarketingukNews

Single Pack Epoxy paint has many applications, and in Riggotts’ industry, the applications are almost limitless. We utilise this durable material for car parks, warehouses as well as airport runways.

Single Pack Epoxy paint not only complies with Riggotts’ stringent quality standards, but it also provides a long-lasting, durable and easy clean finish – giving Riggotts’ clients peace of mind after works have completed by prolonging future maintenance intervals.

Riggotts recently used the advanced material to carry out works for returning client Mike Thelwell Flooring Ltd at Snowhill Car Park, Birmingham.

The works consisted of 946metres of white lining, 14 pedestrian markings, 14 cycle markings, three accessible parking bay markings and 15 metres squared of solid white to form the pedestrian crossings.

As well as improving the clarity and safety of the parking spaces, Riggotts created clear and safer walkways which help to clearly define the routes between pedestrians and vehicle traffic.

The Riggotts team do more than just lining – we can also develop line plans for car parks to maximise the profitability of the space as well as improve safety.

Riggotts join the Jetset

26th August 2019by aperturemarketingukNews

The Buckingham Group called out Riggotts to London Luton Airport for a large-scale refresh at one of their multi-storey car parks.

In 2018, over 18.5 million people passed through the airport – a record for the company.

Last year also saw the international airport celebrate their 80th anniversary with a newly upgraded terminal.

Before work could begin at the Luton site, the Riggotts team had to remove previous thermoplastic markings with their captive shot blasting technology. This not only removes the old markings but also better prepares the surface for adhesion.

Once the surface was suitably prepared to ensure the maximum longevity of the works, the Riggotts team lined the top floor with Single Pack Epoxy – a strong material with excellent flexibility.

As the ground floor is a very heavily trafficked area, a different material was used – Thermoplastic.  Thermoplastic lining is an extremely durable method in which heated plastic is applied to the floor and allowed to cure. This tough, hard material is designed to perform under heavy traffic for many years, ensuring that the car park will require minimal maintenance for years to come.

Ensuring minimal disruption throughout the project was also essential. Being the UK’s fifth busiest airport, we had to make sure we had a bullet-proof strategy so that we could have the car park in a serviceable condition as soon as possible.

Riggotts go back to school for Leeds City College

15th August 2019by aperturemarketingukNews

Long-term client Howard Civil Engineering, one of the North’s leading civil engineering companies, contacted us to help them deliver a more clear and inclusive car park at Leeds City College.

The works followed a £6.5 million build of the college’s reinforced concrete frame by the client – completed mid last year.

Being a new site, inclusion was a key part of the project. We had to make sure that there was an adequate amount of accessible parking bays so that less able people could use the car park as well.

In total, we lined over 332 metres of white lines and 11 accessible parking bays during the project.

The entire project was completed in Kestrel Thermoplastic, an advanced material which becomes a hard-wearing, long-lasting solution to heavily trafficked areas upon cooling.

Working in a city centre can pose challenges, the limited space, busy traffic and the importance of punctuality all can contribute to a high-pressure job.

We overcame the difficulties involved with inner-city work by planning the stages of the work in great detail – with specific deadlines to ensure that the premises were subject to little downtime.

Riggotts can complete projects of any scale on time and to budget. Get in touch with our expert team to discuss everything from pricings to floor plans using our contact page here.

Riggotts line Leed’s latest Business Park

9th August 2019by aperturemarketingukNews

We were given the opportunity to work on an exciting project with returning client GMI Construction. Having previously worked with us, GMI Construction were aware of Riggotts’ high standard of workmanship and so we were called out to line the car park at Thorpe Park Business Park in Leeds.

The busy Business Park has a working population of around 4,500 people, with IBM and National Grid among the 60 businesses operating there.

Booths taking charge with brand new bays for electric vehicles

29th July 2019by aperturemarketingukNews

With electric vehicles marking the beginning of a new automotive era, and the acknowledgement that climate change is posing a real threat to our future, businesses around the country are upgrading their car parking spaces.

Prioritising a select few for Electric Vehicles, these spaces have state of the art chargers which will top up your vehicle whilst you visit the stores.

Founded in 1847 and based in Preston with 28 stores located throughout the North of England, Booths is a chain of high-end supermarkets.

Keeping climate change in mind, the Dunamis Group tasked Riggotts to carry out works for the northern operating supermarket chain at several stores.

To achieve the best adhesion and improve the longevity of the paint, Riggotts jetwashed the surface, cleaning it of any dirt or other grit which would have impeded the durability of the paint. The products used on-site were red and white single pack epoxy paint. The perfect solution for vibrant colours and improved longevity.

In total, the Riggotts operatives carried out over 300m of white lining and four Instavolt logos, making the bays eye-catching and easily recognisable for the customers with Electric Vehicles, advertising the fact they can charge their electric vehicles at the store.

Adapting to newer technology and giving the public a place to recharge their electric vehicles not only entices new customers to your store but give the impression that the store is environmentally aware and is actively going out its way to prevent climate change.

In an effort to reduce their impact on the environment Riggotts have invested over £250,000 in new vehicles packed with the latest technology in fuel efficiency lowering the carbon footprint the nationally operating company emits.

First-class line markings delivery for Royal Mail

26th July 2019by aperturemarketingukNews

Long-time returning client LARC Construction required Riggotts to carry out a full scale reline at the Jubilee Mail Centre in London for Royal Mail. This time Riggotts had the service yard areas in its sights. As this required the first class service in which Riggotts strives to deliver every time.

The service yard area is highly trafficked, with fully loaded HGVs coming and going 24/7. The line marking materials needed to be tough to withstand the test of time and the HGVs.

Before work could begin at the Royal Mail site, surface preparations had to be made. All the areas which needed relining had to be “prepped” using Riggotts’ state of the art captive shot blasting machine – a machine specially developed for Riggotts. Using this ultra-modern machine Riggotts can be sure to deliver the best results, allowing for maximum durability and longevity for your line markings.

After the surface preparations had been completed, the line marking could begin. The works were carried out in both Thermoplastic and Single Pack Epoxy Paint to ensure the best results. The total amount of product laid was as follows: 1175m of 100mm yellow lining, four 4m arrows, several pedestrian crossings, give way markings, 131 letters/numbers, five pedestrian logos and two speed roundels.
