Can I use your marine liner on floors?
No, our marine liner is designed for roof and wall applications only; it should not be used for flooring or exteriors.
Do your marine carpets and grass carpets need to be glued down?
We find that most of our customers don’t glue their carpet to the floor as they prefer to have the carpet loose laid, allowing them to access hatches and remove the carpet to clean. Glueing is recommended for pontoons, jetties and permanent fittings only.
How do you recommend we keep the carpet in place if we don’t want to glue it down?
We recommend using our dual bonded tape which is designed to stay sticky so that you can lift your carpet multiple times while keeping it neatly secured in place.
What glues do you recommend?
For external use we recommend Roberts 6037 Outdoor Adhesive or Contact Adhesive. For inside usage we recommend UZ 57 NUE which is available in our online shop. For our marine and automotive liners we recommend spray able contact adhesive or FS600, also available in our online shop.
