Red Zone Line Marking for Nottingham NHS 

26th October 2020by aperturemarketingukNews

Red zone line marking is a proven method of ensuring that roads in said zones are free from stopped vehicles, improving the flow of traffic, increasing efficiency and lowering traffic build-up.

There are many uses for red zones and various types: 

• Double red lines mean that vehicles may not stop at any time.

• A single red line has its exceptions and vehicles may stop – typically between an allotted time or day. For example; between 10 am – 4 pm and 7 pm – 7 am Monday to Friday. 

If on your travels, you stumble upon a dashed red lined bay, this space may be reserved for loading only. For instance, these spaces may be found outside shops or stores. It might be worth a mention that if found not adhering to these rules, there are likely to be fines involved.

However, there are a few instances where stopping is allowed in a red zone: 

• To prevent an accident occurring.

• When directed to do so by a police officer.

• To allow emergency vehicles to pass.

• If your vehicle has broken down.

While appearing on the roads in most cities around the country red zone line marking also can be found around our hospitals – making sure that people don’t block the essential routes for emergency vehicles.

To combat this exact problem, the NHS site in Nottingham required our help. Carrying out all works in thermoplastic to ensure longevity, the Riggotts crew completed a total of; 705 metres of line marking, 21 600 x 100 give way markings, 33 600 x 200 give way markings, four 1200mm letters and numbers, three metres squared of solid area and twelve speed hump triangles.

The Riggotts thermoplastic crew completed the job, on time and to budget with no disruption to the NHS site.

30th August 2020by aperturemarketingukNews

As technologies in our industry have advanced over the years, so have we. We’ve adapted our techniques and methods to work with the latest and best technologies available for our clients. 

On one of our latest projects in Doncaster, we used both Thermoplastic and MMA line markings for the best results focusing on durability.

Methyl Methcrylate or more commonly known as MMA is a two-component mixture of cold plastic and activator creating a chemical reaction which hardens the material. This screed applied material used in high-stress traffic locations such as roundabouts, junctions and heavily trafficked roads, because of its extremely durable qualities. 

Collectively Thermoplastic and MMA make for extremely durable and vibrant materials.

Altogether, the experienced Riggotts operatives completed a total of; five disabled logos, two pedestrian logos, 60 letters and numbers, 588 meters of thermoplastic line markings and 532 meters squared of blue MMA line markings.

Overall, the client was happy with the results which will not only stand the test of time but improve the health and safety around the site – mitigating potential risks and lowering the rate of accidents.

Bringing Bus station Line Markings to Belper

15th August 2020by aperturemarketingukNews

During 2019, almost 4.8 billion local bus passenger journeys were made in Great Britain, making up a whopping 58 per cent of all public transport journeys which is, in fact, a 0.05 per cent decrease compared to the year before (2018).

That year, the number of buses totalled 34.5 thousand in England, while it amounted to 4.2 thousand in Scotland. In London, the average of journeys taken by the general public is 23.5% higher than the rest of the country.

With this in mind, you can imagine bus station line markings in the UK tend to wear at a faster rate than other places. To tackle this, the Riggotts crews use their trusted high-grade thermoplastic material.

Having carried out a great many bus station line markings over Riggotts’ twenty-six years in the industry, they have perfected the art of delivering the highest quality line markings quickly and effectively.

The latest of which was carried out in Belper, Derbyshire – a town known for its rich industrial history. In total, one of the Riggotts team carried out 54 numbers/letters, 11 meters squared of solid area, three pedestrian logos, 112 meters of 100mm yellow Bus Station Line Markings, various surface preparations (shot blasting) and 19 meters squared of sealer to improve longevity.

All the above works laid were carried out using a mix of yellow thermoplastic and MMA paint – known for its durability.

Car Park Line Marking – From ferry to Finish

22nd July 2020by aperturemarketingukNews

We all know the importance of using car park line marking to prevent confusion when using car parks. If done well, the line markings clearly define where the customer should park, all the while improving health and safety.

The use of car parks is a vital necessity of any road users life, knowing where to park their vehicles and that they’re safe. Line markings are an essential aid to an efficient car park – without them, a car park invites havoc and potential losses due to undefined parking spaces.

If an accident does occur at a car parking property, the authority may charge the owner of the car park for unclear line markings; therefore, a car park owner could be liable – an easy way to prevent this is with clearly laid out line markings.

This week, the programming department at Riggotts sent a team to Stornoway, Scotland. The 589-mile journey, which included a ferry crossing, took the team around ten hours to get to the site.

Once the team arrived and had a good nights rest, they soon got to work. Working on a freshly resurfaced car park and carrying the works out in thermoplastic meant for the perfect conditions for optimum adhesion.

After completing over 1500 meters of car park line marking the crew set off on the long journey back to the Riggotts HQ – they even called in at another site on the way in order to complete more car park line markings before stopping for a well-deserved night’s sleep.

Our crews pride themselves on their abilities and quality of work, regularly going above and beyond for our clients. A testament to this can be found in the array of jobs completed every day.

Multi-Story Line Marking for Purfleet Multi-Story Car Park

29th June 2020by aperturemarketingukNews

Multi-story car parks give its users the chance to park their vehicles close to where they need to go – more often seen in town or city centres. The car parks use a smaller ground space while utilising the area above the ground floor, usually with over five levels to increase the car parks capacity and encourage its users to park there.

I think we all know the benefits of a multi-story car park – they save space, are incredibly efficient and designed to withstand heavy and varying loads as well as the stresses that are imposed with moving vehicles. Sizes do vary; however, the average multi-story car park in the UK has capacity for over 500 cars.

As more and more people are using cars and therefore multi-story car parks, maintenance on these car storing machines is on the increase year on year. At Riggotts, we can provide an array of multi-story line marking options to suit the needs for any multi-story car park.

This month the Riggotts paint crew carried out essential multi-story line marking works in Purfleet, London. The team carried out nearly ten thousand 300mm letters and numbers in single pack epoxy paint – numbering the spaces.

Single pack epoxy paint is durable and vibrant due to the advanced pigment technologies in the paint itself, giving it its vibrant colours and strong durability.

Implementing a brand new cats eye fixing machine

23rd June 2020by aperturemarketingukNews

Invented in 1933 and first implemented on the UK roads in 1937, Cats eyes have played a considerable role in the health and safety aspects of roads in the UK for years and are still in use today.

Used in a variety of colours, shapes and sizes modern-day cats eyes are incredibly effective in showing traffic flow and warning road users of potentially hazardous areas, such as, determining roadsides and alerting drivers to slip roads.

Modern-day cats eyes can be produced in a variety of different colours which all have different meanings.

• White cats eyes separate lanes and design the middle of single carriageway roads

• Red cats eyes warn roads users they’re near the left edge of a road.

• Amber cats eyes warn drivers of the central reservation when using roads such as motorways.

• Green cats eyes determine the edge of a motorway / dual carriageway where laybys or rest areas exit the main road.

• Yellow cats eyes warm drivers of temporary changes to lane layouts when road works are taking place.

Now that we’ve covered a brief history and what each cats eye colour means – Riggotts have just taken delivery of a brand new cats eye fixing/extruding machine which will half the time spent cats eye fixing/installing.

Rigged with an arsenal of new features, the new cats eye fixing machine is equipped with twin boilers, for line marking, reducing the number of vehicles needed on-site and with dual processors, doubling the time spent fixing cats eyes, saving our clients time and money. The truck itself has the latest eco-technology improving emissions and call-out costs.

Thanking our NHS with Top Notch Line Markings

28th May 2020by aperturemarketingukNews

Continuing with the theme of showing support for the NHS and all key workers during these difficult times, we have carried out essential works for Grimsby Council outside the NHS Grimsby hospital.

During our visit to NHS Grimsby, we carried out over 30 metres of 100mm double yellow lining, clearly marking no parking areas around the hospital grounds. To show our appreciation and that of Grimsby Council, we also carried out lettering spelling “Thank you NHS”.

It’s only a small gesture of appreciation, but every person who drives over this small signage will see and hopefully feel the same way. We are all very thankful for the hard work of all key workers while the rest of us are contained in lockdown.

Parking restrictions in the UK have been in use since the 1920s, with the primary goal of preventing vehicles parking on the roadside.

Double yellow lines are the most common parking restriction used – they do not allow vehicles to wait at the side of the road at any time.

However, loading or unloading from the vehicle is permitted, and dropping off or picking passengers is also permitted.

Single yellow lines have different rules. Near a single yellow line, there will be an upright sign with information about when vehicles are allowed to park – this could exclude certain times of the day or weekdays for example.

Forecourt Line Markings for Jaguar Land Rover

30th April 2020by aperturemarketingukNews

To take our minds away from the current pandemic that is Coronavirus, we’re shedding light on some of the other projects our crews have completed earlier on in the year.

This time our experienced crews headed down to Sunbury-on-Thames, to carry out and deliver forecourt line markings for Jaguar Land Rover at one of their dealerships.

Our experience in delivering forecourt line markings has allowed us to quickly understand what is needed to deliver on time, to budget and to adhere to time restraints.

The project consisted of four arrows, give way markings including 28 pads and one give way triangle, 21 1200mm letters, nine meters squared of solid area markings, eleven meters of lining and the installation of 25 preform markings reading ‘CUSTOMER PARKING.’ The project was delivered in just one day – transforming their premises with a refreshing new look.

All the above works were carried out in thermoplastic paint, a durable material perfect for a surface such as a car dealership forecourt – a surface with very high volumes of traffic.

In addition to thermoplastic being very durable, the material also carries anti-slip properties – increasing the health and safety value of the markings as well as the initial design in which the markings were laid.

The layout of the forecourt added to health and safety by directing traffic through the one-way system and outlined where customers can park safely and efficiently.

Infrastructure road markings at NHS Nightingale

27th April 2020by aperturemarketingukNews

With Coronavirus (COVID-19) still on the rise and the UK still in lockdown, our crews are still hard at work carrying out essential projects.

Riggotts recently carried out a helipad installation project at the NHS Nightingale Hospital in London with only one day’s notice, a true testament to our philosophy that we try to complete any job no matter the size, deadline or budget.

This time with only eight hours’ notice, our crew carried out infrastructure road markings seamlessly, allowing the all-important emergency services and front-line workers to safely navigate the previously unmarked roads leading up to the NHS Nightingale itself. The project consisted of a multitude of road line markings, signage and lettering, making the roads safer for all who would use them.

So, what are the safety benefits of infrastructure road markings?
One of the most important advantages to using infrastructure road markings is the improvement of road safety that comes with them.

Infrastructure road markings can be made to be highly reflective, making them much easier to see at night, and in adverse weather conditions where visibility is drastically reduced in comparison to unmarked or poorly marked roads.

When using thermoplastic infrastructure road markings, the thermoplastic is layered, building up to create rumble strips which provide drivers with physical feedback in the form of prominent vibration and loud rumbling noise. This helps raise awareness of imminent danger spots and alerts drivers to their speed, resulting in less frequent crashes and accidents.

Last-minute Landing Pad for NHS Nightingale.

9th April 2020by aperturemarketingukNews

While Coronavirus takes the country hostage, leaving only a limited number of companies still operating due to the lockdown mandate, Riggotts are as busy as ever carrying out critical, essential works at sites throughout the UK.

The Riggotts team was asked to provide urgent works at London’s NHS Nightingale hospital located inside the ExCeL Centre, and with time being a crucial factor in completing this project, they had to act fast.

With one day’s notice, one of Riggotts’ experienced crews were en-route, once they arrived they soon got to work. NHS Nightingale required a new helicopter landing pad capable of withstanding forces of the mighty chinook or any other helicopter that might be used at the facility.

Built in just nine days, NHS Nightingale London is the first of several critical care field hospitals built by HNS England as part of UK’s response to the COVID-19 epidemic.

The facility was built with the help of over 200 soldiers a day from the Royal Anglian Regiment and the Royal Gurkha Rifles, working alongside NHS staff and multiple contractors to get the job done.

In just nine days, the ExCeL Centre now can facilitate for around 4000 patients, with more than 80 wards, each with 42 fully equipped beds to manage the critical care some COVID-19 patients need. If the hospital reaches capacity, it will be one of the largest in the world.

If you require urgent works that need completing on short notice, give the Riggotts team a call, and we’ll see what we can do for you. You can contact us via freephone on 0800 8488 414 or via email at webenquiries@riggott.co.uk – alternatively visit our contact page here.

Thermoplastic Car Park Line Marking in Carlisle.

31st March 2020by aperturemarketingukNews

With Coronavirus taking over the news, we thought it best to share a news story which takes us away from the chaos during this lockdown. So here’s some information about a car park line marking project we completed before the pandemic struck.

As we all know line markings don’t just make a car park look nice, they’re there to improve efficiency, accommodate more footfall and to raise health and safety aspects.

Equipped with the highest quality PPE, safety measures and a wealth of experience, our crews were more than prepared to take on the challenge.

During the day carrying out car park line marking can be difficult, with heavy footfall and lots of cars posing potential risks. This time our skilled thermoplastic crew worked throughout the night to complete the project.

During the night, our crew onsite carried out over 3000 metres of line markings to the roadways and specialist bays – rejuvenating the stores’ roadways and the safety of its customers using the specialist bays.

All in all the team put down 38 arrows, 25 disabled bays, 16 parent and child bays, 30 letters and numbers, 253 give way pads including eight triangles, 30 meters squared solid area, two speed roundels and around 3000 meters of lining.

All the above car park line markings improve the stores’ aesthetics and more importantly helps to keep their customers safe.

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.

If you’re looking for a greener alternative or if you require expert advice about your line markings get in touch today via email or freephone for your free, non-obligational quote.
