  1. The foot-grille sections will be installed in their frames, as a last item, to prevent damages during construction. Install all foot grilles, square and level with finished floor so as to permit easy manipulation of all sections. All frame members and intermediary supports are to be level and well supported on all their lengths in order to avoid any deflection over a long term period.
  2. All frames and pans are to be thoroughly cleaned before installing any grille section in order for them not to exceed finished floor level. All sound gaskets damaged during installation, are to be replaced before final inspection. Protect grilles from construction traffic.

Option #1: Water run off
The vinyl hinges are notched every 300mm (12") in order to allow water to flow under the mat and into the pit area.
