At Protec the onset of winter conjures up numerous protection requirements and the differing ways in which the protection products we offer can be used on site. The inclement weather can provide a multitude of problems such as damage caused by the weather (water, wind and snow) along with more conventional problems of extra mud and water being walked over newly finished floors.
Taking a handful of these more common problems we can offer solutions to reduce and in many instances remove the consequences of winter weather.
At Protec we pride ourselves on our customer Services excellence and as part of this are keen to inform our existing Account Customers of one of the many benefits of being a Protec Credit Account Holder.
As an Account holder customers can call through and order any time during the day (between 8am and 17:00pm) but a little known benefit is that customers are able to call through and ADD to an order they have already placed earlier that day up to 17:00.
A well knows Car Manufacturing company has contacted Protec to explain an issue they are experiencing during the manufacturing process.
The very small parts used to make the cars often can scratch easily. The solution for this company was to apply the affected areas with Protec’s Low Tack 50mm x 33m Tape to prevent any scratching.
The tape can be removed when it needs to be leaving no residue on the parts – the perfect temporary protection.
What ever the occasion – whether it be your 18th, 21st, 50th! A great idea is to use some carpet protector to protect your house.
Any accidental spillages the product will save your carpet! We all know accidents can happen at a party.
Recently Protec’s FR LPS1207 Bubble wrap was requested by the British Museum for protection of existing Column facades in place.
The bubble wrap is fully certificated to LPS1207 Standard and will provide excellent impact protection for the duration of the project.
The High Tack cloth tape can be used with it for sticking material to material so no tape goes directly onto the finished surface.
Our Flame Retardant Heavy Duty CushionGard have long been a favourite for protection of curtainwalling and windows.
The lightweight material is much easier and less labour intensive to handle than other rigid protective boards and the large 1.5m x 100m rolls allow for large areas to be protected without the need of cutting, jointing.
We always find that our customers are the best positioned to tell us the most innovative and best uses for our temporary protective materials.
One of our domestic customers purchased our Zipwall 4 pole kit and self adhesive carpet protection to cover up areas whilst new stove was installed in his living room.
Not only the carpets, walls and furnishings remained clean and dust free for the duration of the works undertaken (including demolition, brickwork, plastering and painting) the contractor installing the stove was so impressed with how our materials work, they bought the set off our customer!
Happy household, happy contractor, we are pleased to have been able to help!
Now that the autumn/winter months are almost upon us, all construction works become just that little more difficult. Our customers tell us that more attention needs to be paid to covering up brickwork, weatherproofing unfinished openings and windows on buildings.
Rigid Stair Treads are a popular way to effectively protect staircases from damage, withstanding the toughest traffic.
