Landing Airfield and Runway Line Markings

17th March 2020by aperturemarketingukNews

Airfield line marking and runway maintenance is essential to the daily operations of the modern-day airport, from directional runway markings to traditional methods of maintenance Riggotts can provide for all – having completed works on both major and small airstrips. Riggotts offer a full application of this service to CAA CAP168 and Military JSP318 standards.

Riggotts provide airfield lining & runway maintenance services for both civilian and Ministry of Defence airfields. Depending on the specification, chlorinated rubber, one/two-pack epoxy and hot-applied thermoplastic can all be used.

Riggotts produce line markings to our own exacting standards and specifications, working carefully to ensure we match their customers’ individual requirements on any surface.

More recently the Riggotts lining crews carried out contracts on several airports including two RAF bases and the Isle of Man Airport. With three contracts running simultaneously throughout the UK, the teams managed to preserve the deals and brought them all to handover, even with the inclement weather hindering their efforts.

Over the three sites, the Riggotts lining crew completed over 10,000 meters of airfield line marking, making the airports compliant to CAA and health and safety standards.

With the right tools and experience, airfield and runway lining can be delivered with ease – giving the airport that extra level of safety.

Typically the average runway varies from 8,000 foot to 12,000 foot long; this means its imperative for the professionals to take over to ensure the correct lining is applied to the exact dimensions, this is of the utmost importance as the slightest mistake can result in a significant accident.

Warehouse Line Marking in Hemel Hempstead

5th March 2020by aperturemarketingukNews

There are many reasons why a company might have its internal warehouse line markings refreshed or have new markings put down.

At Riggotts line marking, we understand how speedily operations move in warehouses and distribution facilities. Employees work alongside machine operators while completing their roles simultaneously.

In order to maximise the capabilities of your facility, health and safety, efficiency and speed need to work alongside each other to provide a safe working environment – mitigating the potential risk of injury.

With Riggotts having a wealth of experience with over 25 years innovating in the line marking industry, trust assured they could provide the best work at the best price.

The latest example of what Riggotts can do for a warehouse or distribution facility was for a client in Hemel Hempstead.

The client required urgent warehouse line marking completing at their new development. In total the Riggotts paint crew delivered a total of 1757 metres of line marking, four pedestrian logos, 150 numbers and letters defining different areas and three forklift logos.

In order to improve longevity and paint adhesion, the Riggotts paint crew prepared the surface with their state of the art captive shot blasting machine. The team then applied the line markings using a two-pack epoxy paint – known for its durability through its use on such project in the past.

The warehouse line marking that the team applied has helped our client not only for health and safety reasons but has also improved their efficiency throughout the site. The line markings minimised the element of risk using clearly defined areas for pedestrians and machine-operated equipment.

If your business requires warehouse or line markings which minimise risk and improve the efficiency of your facility, please get in touch today and speak to one of our experienced team members by freephone or email.

The power you’re supplying. It’s electrifying.

29th February 2020by aperturemarketingukNews

As tensions in the world rise when regarding the evergrowing threat of global warming, Riggotts are leading the way in electric vehicle charging bay installations, with over 10,000 completed nationally to date, electrifying the way for greener energy.

Not only is this a greener source of energy but is cleaner too – no more C02 emissions and toxic gasses are emitted through the combustion of fossil fuels – reducing the greenhouse gas effect on our planet.

This time the Riggotts paint crew was called out to a site in Bournemouth, which called for the line marking of two electric vehicle charging bays. In total, the experienced team carried out two custom made Instavolt Logos, eighteen letters and 44 metres of line marking; Riggotts lined the works in a single pack epoxy paint to ensure strength and durability.

Did you know that Riggotts can create any design and use it in a specially tailored stencil for your business? Well they can, a perfect example of this is with the InstaVolt logos. Whatever the design, Riggotts can deliver.

Keeping in with a green theme, Riggotts line marking has invested in several new paint spray machines – one that doesn’t run on the standard fossil fuel but is entirely electric. This not only improves the health and safety aspects of working with the machine but improves the carbon footprint of Riggotts itself.

Another way Riggotts have adopted a greener form of working is their ultra line marking service. A paint that is instantly cured by ultraviolet light – reducing time spent on-site and only requires electricity to power the strong light source.

Providing Pedigree Anti Skid Line Markings for R F Racing Ltd

25th February 2020by aperturemarketingukNews

Richard Fahey Racing Ltd required the thoroughbred pedigree that Riggotts offer to deliver adequate anti-slip resistance to their surfaces to ensure their horses and staff stay safe while on site.

The North Yorkshire based company has made significant improvements to their yard, including the addition of 44 extra stables and furlong indoor riding facilities. The mile-long all-weather and grass gallops cater for over 200 horses each day.

The existing anti-skid line markings on-site had deteriorated and posed a risk to staff and to the safety of the horses which use the yard every day.

With such a heavily used yard area R F Racing Ltd decided they needed to take immediate action to provide necessary safety defences.

During our visit to R F Racing Ltd, the Riggotts thermoplastic anti-skid line marking crew laid a total of 657 square metres of highly resistant anti-slip material at their training facility located on the edge of the Howardian Hills in North Yorkshire a place that can expect inclement weather during the winter months.

Using specially developed slip-resistant materials, we created a high-specification surface that will increase safety for vehicles, animals and people at the facility all year round. Giving R F Racing Ltd peace of mind during any type of inclement weather.

Riggotts were called upon for this project due to our exceptional workmanship. As we’d carried out similar work for the same company previously, they were well aware of the high standards we would deliver.

With our experienced team taking care of the surfaces on-site, RF Racing Ltd could concentrate on galloping home to even more victories in the future events.

If you need any expert advice or require works at your site regarding slip resistant anti skid line markings, speak to one of our experienced team members today, via freephone or email for your free quote.

Crew Deliver Health and Safety Line Markings in Chilton

30th January 2020by aperturemarketingukNews

Having clear and concise line markings is a health and safety obligation and often can be required by law.

Workplace safety is paramount, and one of the best ways to ensure this is with line markings designed to improve health and safety and reduce the likelihood of an accident.

We know for certain types of businesses line markings are essential for day to day operations. Distribution centres and warehouses are amongst these businesses, as the vehicles which operate at these sites are more often bigger and more dangerous.

With over 25 years of experience and more than 800 decades combined in our workforce, we know that sometimes work simply can’t stop. To reduce disruption, we have products such as Ultra Line Marking and other quick-drying paints to get the job done with minimal disturbance.

As well as quick-drying paints, we offer textured paints which provide grip. This grip, in turn, acts as another health and safety method by helping to prevent falls on slippery surfaces – particularly around areas such as entrances or exits.

When we visit your site, we don’t just provide line markings which last, but we offer line markings which comply with not only our standards but those of the HSE too.

Recently, Riggotts provided health and safety line markings at a site in Chilton. These external works will be used to reduce accidents and possible injuries, protecting the people at risk of injury when walking outside.

After the correct surface preparations and line removal, the crew on-site delivered new hatched areas, pedestrian walkways and zebra crossings while removing existing markings to make way for updated and safer routes around the site.

If you require expert, advice regarding health and safety complying line markings speak to one of our experienced team today, via freephone or email for your free quote.

Magor Distribution Centre requires a full refresh

24th January 2020by aperturemarketingukNews

The hustle and bustle of a fully functioning distribution centre is hard to compare with – the amount of traffic and other HGV vehicles which roam these vast centres are known offenders for accentuating line marking wear and tear.

To combat such line marking munching machines, Riggotts have the perfect recipe for sustaining and improving the longevity of line markings on-site – correct surface preparation and improved sealing to ensure complete adhesion.

Looking to Wales and stepping back almost 15 years – Riggotts completed this colossal distribution centre for Wilkinsons in Magor, a large village in Monmouthshire, South-East Wales.

The Wilkinsons Distribution centre has been a client of Riggotts for almost 15 years since the site was initially opened 15 years ago. When they required a complete line marking refresh, we knew precisely what to do.

After a significant resurfacing program, one of the Riggotts Thermoplastic teams was on the way to completely reline and refresh the newly finished surface.

With thousands of metres of line marking already completed on the Magor project, the Riggotts team have kept to their stringent time scale – minimising client disruptions.

Togeather, the new thermoplastic line markings and resurfaced tarmac make the perfect conditions for adhesion, extending the life of the line markings.

In addition to improving the aesthetics of the site, the new and improved line markings add to upgraded health and safety while enhancing the efficiency of the highly used roadways.

Improving efficiency doesn’t just improve the speed; it saves valuable time and money, which then can be put to good use elsewhere.
