A member of our team at Protec recently decided to move home. While making the move and carrying furniture through the house a disaster occurred and a sofa put a huge dent into a door frame.
Now moving home is stressful enough, the logistics can often be tedious and help is often needed meaning your soon-to-be ex-house will be subject to some heavy foot traffic with lots of people coming in and out. An accident like above is waiting to happen. This can equally apply to the new home your moving into and the last thing you want to do is damage any fittings or floors on the first day you’re moving in!
It is always a good idea to take preventative measures to ensure things like this don’t happen and this is where Protec can help.
To ensure carpets aren’t damaged while moving or even simply decorating your new home people often use things like dustsheets or old coverings to protect floor but they can cause some serious trip hazards particularly on stairs or when carrying some heavy furniture. Here is a great video of our carpet protection which is a lot more effective, efficient and safe than any traditional dustsheet! Continue reading →
Protec stock a comprehensive range of fixing tapes to suit all applications whether they are to be used for jointing or sticking to finished surfaces. We can custom print many types of tape and can source tapes including Packaging tapes, cloth (gaffa /duct) tape, PVC electrical tapes, low tack tapes and many others.
Sometimes, with the vast array of different tapes available, it is not clear which one would be best for the job. Here is a short guide by application on which tape should suit your needs.
Scaffolding doesn’t have to be ugly! At Protec we supply a lot of materials to contractors of all sizes and many request a lot of these, particularly scaffold sheeting or fence screens, to be branded with their logo. This is often a simple logo print with maybe some other details however we recently had a request for something altogether much more interesting. 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 you can definitely try and blend it in. We recently supplied our 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.
New kitchen and bathroom installations can be very costly. Of course, it’s all relative, but as areas of a house to re-fit, items 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?

When reviewing the Protec Polythene it may be useful to divide them into Flame Retardant and Non Flame Retardant in order to assess the viability of the different product offerings.

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 →
