ONGOING REQUIRED MAINTENANCE

To ensure the safety and stability of your BeaverFit product, and to increase the longevity of the finishing, it is important to conduct regular maintenance checks.

INSPECTION SCHEDULE

Upon Installation: The product should be inspected immediately following completion of the product installation.

Early Post Installation: The product should be inspected in detail one week post installation, or after one week in use.

Ongoing: Regular inspection schedules depend on the amount of users and install location:

  • 100+ users/day = Weekly
  • 25-100 users/day = Bi-weekly
  • Less than 25 users/week = Monthly
  • Coastal installation: Weekly

 

INSPECTION COMPONENTS

Anchoring Assessment

BeaverFit products are either freestanding (not bolted down) or anchored using at minimum a 1/2” TITEN HD embedded 3.25” into a 5” thick concrete slab (refer to your product spec sheet for more detailed information on your product’s specific anchoring requirements).

Anchored products:

  • Ensure all ground anchors are secured on each footpad.
  • If any bolts are loose, tighten them.
  • If any bolts are missing, contact BeaverFit for replacement hardware details. Do not use the product if anchoring hardware is missing from the product. Failure to do so could damage the structure or cause serious injury and/or death.

Freestanding products:

  • Ensure product is level.
  • If product is not level, adjust the footpads accordingly as product can settle over time especially in soft surfaces such as sand, grass or dirt.

Hardware Assessment

BeaverFit products use a variety of hardware to assemble the upright components. Customers should follow the above recommended product inspection schedule and conduct the following activities:

  • Inspect all bolts.
  • Tighten bolts as required.
  • Contact BeaverFit if any bolts are missing so the correct replacements can be identified. Do not use the product if hardware is missing from the product. Failure to do so could damage the structure or cause serious injury and/or death.

Finishing Assessment

BeaverFit products receive a mil-spec powder coat finish for both aesthetics and product longevity. If the product is installed outdoors, it will first go through a hot dip galvanization process to weatherproof all steel components that have exposure to the elements. This prevents interior and structural corrosion.

Customer care and maintenance include periodic cleaning and inspection of the finish for damage, wear, and signs of corrosion. Occasional touch up of worn surfaces and breaches in the coating exposing raw metal may be necessary to preserve the protective and decorative value of the finish over time.

In order to maintain the cosmetic integrity of the product, it is important to clean and touch up the powder coat finish when necessary.

  • Inspect the finish for surface rust, scratches, or buildup such as bird droppings or salt buildup.
  • If there is a buildup of materials, see cleaning instructions provided.
  • If the powder coat finish has been scratched or scuffed, see cleaning and touchup.
  • If powder coat finish is exhibiting surface rust, see cleaning and touchup.

 

CLEANING

The frequency and type of cleaning will vary with the amount of soil, contamination, and salt spray accumulated on the surfaces and the end users’ desire regarding the appearance of the finish. Buildup of substances with a high pH level (like bird droppings) will damage the powder coat finish if not cleaned off in a timely manner. Any product installed or used within sight of the ocean will be exposed to salt spray/mist and will require additional maintenance not required in non-coastal areas.

When it is necessary to clean:

  • Use a soft brush or cloth, mild soap, and very warm water. Soaps with emulsifiers that break down common stains and are scum-free are the best to use.
  • For coastal areas: Weekly fresh-water rinse to remove salt buildup from the unit. Failure to perform this maintenance could reduce or even void warranty coverage.
  • Do not use petroleum based, aggressive alkaline or acid-based chemicals, or abrasive materials.
  • Ensure all surfaces are wiped dry with a clean cloth.
  • When cleaning attachments for storage in a Shred Shed, Performance Locker, or Gym Box, allow everything to adequately dry before placing them back in storage. Failure to do so could result in trapped moisture causing deterioration of the interior components and accessories.

 

TOUCHUP

Assess the scratch or scuff and determine if there are any signs of corrosion (surface rust accumulating on scratch or scuff).

If corrosion is not present:

  • Prepare the area with a light sanding (400 grit abrasive paper).
  • Apply one coat of a ultraviolet resistant liquid coating material such as Nanomyte and allow it to dry.
  • Finish with touchup paint (BeaverFit can provide touchup paint to match powder coat color upon request).

If corrosion (surface rust) is present, the surface rust needs to be removed mechanically to prevent further corrosion.

  • Mechanically remove the rust using a wire brush.
  • Apply a corrosion resistant epoxy primer layer and allow it to dry.
  • Finish with touch up paint (BeaverFit can provide touch up paint to match powder coat color upon request).

If corrosion (surface rust) is present but there is not scratch or scruff:

  • If rust is present in these areas, use a melamine foam sponge to remove the rust. Avoid using abrasive materials to scrub the rust away as this may remove powder coating from the parent material and exacerbate the issue.
  • If the issue persists, further inspection may be necessary. Possible causes could be scratches or gouges behind the hardware from movement of the equipment, or the hardware itself lost its corrosion resistance barrier. If this is the case it should be replaced. If the latter is present, safely remove the hardware and perform the touchup steps listed above.

 

FINISHING FAQ

What is weatherproofing?

Weatherproofing is defined as a coating of material that protects major structural components from failure due to oxidation. Hot dip galvanizing and zinc coating are applied to raw steel to prevent interior and structural corrosion. A mil-spec powder coat finish is then applied.

What is finishing?

Powder coat is the finishing substance applied on top of raw or galvanized steel to provide a robust protective and decorative barrier to prevent premature corrosion of ferrous metal surfaces when exposed to sweat, certain chemicals and the harmful effects of the outdoor weather environment. However, the organic finishing of metal products that are exposed to weathering conditions such as sun, rain, wind, pollution, freezing cold, salt water, and a host of other conditions will degrade over time. The elements of nature combined with other contributing factors such as stray electrical current, dissimilar metals, and physical contact with abrasive materials may cause wear, damage, or erosion and corrosion of the coating and underlying metal substrate and will therefore shorten the decorative and protective value of the finish.
