Hospital Wall Protection Installation
Scotch Brite Pad
Commercial Vinyl Floor Wax Stripper
No Wax vinyl cleaner
Installation For Waxed Vinyl Flooring:
(*Do not use this procedure for no wax vinyl floors.)
Position bed/stretcher at desired point from headwall.
Do not peel tape red liner until the floor is completely prepared.
While bed/stretcher is in proper position in room/bay place StretcherStopper against casters.
Mark StretcherStopper position on the floor then move bed/stretcher away to prepare floor for mounting.
Remove floor wax within marked area using a commercial vinyl floor wax stripper. After wax removal scrub surface with a
scotch brite pad and then wet sponge with tap water. Dry surface with a paper towel or equivalent. Final clean the surface with
isopropyl alcohol and then allow drying.
Peel the tape red liner from the bottom of the StretcherStopper. To separate liner from adhesive, start on one corner of the
tape using tweezers. When handling the part after removing the liner avoid contact with the tape adhesive. Contaminating the
tape adhesive surface will reduce the effectiveness of the bond.
Recheck location prior to mounting. The part cannot be reapplied once the tape makes contact with the floor. Align part to the
marked area and mount to floor. Apply downward pressure along the entire length of the StretcherStopper to ensure solid
contact with the floor. Once the part is mounted apply pressure with your foot over the entire length of the part.
After 60 minutes the StretcherStopper is ready for use, however the ultimate bond strength will be achieved after 72 hours, so
avoid chemical or moisture exposure.
Installation For No Waxed Vinyl Flooring:
Follow the same installation instructions as the Waxed Vinyl Flooring with exception to step number five (5). Use a no wax vinyl cleaner, final clean with isopropyl alcohol and then allow drying.
(Note: Because of the wide variation in no wax vinyl flooring textures, it is advisable the user conduct sample testing to ensure that the performance will be satisfactory.)
***Note: If your facility is using multiple bed/stretcher models that float or move to different areas, make sure to position the StretcherStopper based on the bed/stretcher model that has the furthest caster distance from the headwall. This will ensure that all beds/stretchers will contact StretcherStopper before contacting the headwall.
Cutting through the tape with a special cable saw is the most effective method. Keep cable wire parallel to the floor during the cut to avoid damage to the product. Contact StretcherStopper for cable saw info.
To remove adhesive tape from the floor use a multitask oscillating tool with a scraping accessory. A skilled operator is recommended to avoid floor damage.
Alternate method: Scrape with a putty knife followed with a rubber disk stripe off wheel. (Contact StretcherStopper for Stripe Off Wheel info) Any residual adhesive can be removed with Automotive Bug and Tar remover and a scrapper / razor blade.
Caution: Do not pry with a mechanical device to separate the product from the floor. This method will cause damage to the floor and product.
StretcherStopper warrants for 12 months from date of receipt that the product will be free of defects in material and manufacture. This limited warranty does not cover damage resulting from misuse, workmanship in application, or application in accordance with StretcherStopper recommended procedures.
This product uses a high bond tape that has a holding strength for both dynamic and static stress situations. High bond tapes have the strength to replace liquid adhesives and permanent fasteners. The tape has performed in a variety of other applications such as bonding traffic signs, attaching panels and trim on trucks, and attaching window panels to the frame of skyscrapers.
