Product Questionscan you bend it round corners , and how do you fit the insert? ,does it press in or do you slide it in ? in particular round the corner ?Question by: PETER DAVIS on 26 Apr 2016 08:01:00Many thanks for your questions.
This profile will bend around radius corners without issue, even sharp corners with the application of a little heat.
Regarding the fitting of the insert, firstly warmed in a bucket of hot water to soften in preparation.
When fitting start at one end of the body allowing a few inches of the insert to overhang to allow for shrinkage once cooled. Then push insert into place by locating the top leg and then clipping in the bottom leg to lock the insert within the body.
Repeat this clipping action around the boat until complete.
We suggest leaving the insert overhanging for 24hrs to allow to completely shrink before push the insert inwards along both sides (to take up any remaining shrinkage) before trimming the ends flush.
The Wilks TeamAnswer by: Wilks Team (Admin) on 4 May 2016 14:43:00Do you recommend a min/max dimension between fixings. I was planning on 6inches but unsure if that is close enough to prevent any bowing or sagging.
Question by: Bob Telford on 20 Jul 2017 15:18:00We advise fixing every 100mm to 200mm when fitting smaller profiles such as PVC 180 along the side of a boat. Therefore 150mm (6") would be fine.
However, when fitting around a tighter radius (bow/stern) the fixings need to be closer together (25 to 40mm) to help achieve a tight fit.
When fitting the profile we recommended starting at the bow and working backwards. Further details can be found in our fitting guides: https://www.wilks.co.uk/marine/fitting-guides.html
