Protec designs custom printed banners for Woburn Abbey

Scaffolding doesn’t have to be ugly!

Protec’s printed banners can be branded with your very own design. This is often a simple logo print, however we recently had a request for a design which will blend with a building.

Work on a public or historic building that is often still open and accommodating visitors while under refurbishment or construction can look unsightly and detract from the visitor’s experience. Hiding scaffolding or other works completely is often not possible but using Protec’s printed banner service will definitely help to disguise it.

Protec have recently supplied Printed Banner to Woburn Abbey which has been the home of the Dukes of Bedford for nearly 400 years. When work was planned to go ahead on the building a solution was needed to keep the scaffolding on the side of the building as unobtrusive as possible as there were still planned visits and events such as weddings taking place.

The banners are an ideal, cost-effective solution for promotional purposes to create a big visual impact. We produce full colour, digitally printed banners at low prices. PVC banners of any size can be made using single or multiple images, company logos or even photographs. There are no colour limitations, and virtually any effect can be re-produced quickly and cost-effectively. Our vinyl banners are water-resistant, UV-resistant, printed with UV stable inks and are finished with strengthened eyelets.

Protec’s Worktop Protectors are essential in a Kitchen fit out.

New kitchen and bathroom installations can be very costly. Of course, it’s all relative, but as areas of a house to re-fititems such as sinks, baths and worktops rank highly in the cost stakes particuarly is they are bespoke items with large lead times. The cost of damage therefore can be comparatively high also. That’s why, our range of kitchen & bathroom protection products are among our best sellers. So which of your new prized possessions can you protect during the installation, and what should you be using?

Protec in the West End!

A number of clients have been purchasing Protec’s Proplex Sheeting for backdrops in various theatre productions as well as using it for stage scenery like our recent blog where a designer, Mike Rogers, created movable screens which represented different locations during the production . The material, particularly in black, provides outstanding performance for stage use whether it’s creating a darkened back screening or even, in some instances, for cut out props etc. The 2mm grade is easily bent/cut for creating any number of shapes and the higher 4mm grade is rigid enough to stand as a screen. When the black version is used it is also great for blocking out light! Continue reading

temporary protectionPeelGard- Spray-on Coatings for Temporary Window Protection, Masking, Decoration and Long-Term Preservation

Protec have offered PeelGard as part of their temporary protection range for a while now and is very popular as a coating to temporarily protect windows and glazing. What is not known is that PeelGard works great on virtually all non-porous surfaces. This means that PeelGard is a great option when meeting the demand of many industrial applications, not just surface protection, but also masking, decoration, and long term preservation.

PeelGard is a peelable protective coating designed for internal use on most non-porous surfaces such as; plastics, acrylics, marble, work surfaces, stainless steel, concrete, lacquered flooring, tiles and paintwork. It protects against damage such as scratches, surface abrasion, staining, spillages and paint and cement spatter for up to 24 months and can also be made waterproof. The environmentally friendly coating is applied as a liquid by spray or roller and dry to form a skin-tight, plastic film meaning no adhesive residue which, can be easily stripped away.

Due to its high level of durability, when dry, the coating can then be painted over meaning a logo or message can be applied via stencil for promotional or advertising purposes. Sports stadiums also use this regularly to temporarily hide certain advertising for specific events etc, this has proven particuarly popular with the upcoming London Olympics.

So whether it is an original floor that needs convenient, long lasting temporary protection which can be easily painted onto and then removed or glass/glazing which needs protection against knocks and scratches on the construction site PeelGard is a great and flexible solution.
