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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.”

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.

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.
