PromeshLooking at Floor Protection can be a daunting task with so many products that can offer similar protection, differing requirements on different sites and different floor coverings requiring varying levels of protection.

At Protec we pride ourselves on our extensive product range that can offer a protection solution to the majority of protection scenarios that arise on sites. We have Proplex sheets for floors where impact resistance is prevalent, Self Adhesive Carpet Protector where a firm grip is required on carpeted Stair Cases or the Breathershield for wooden and tiled floors where moisture needs to escape from the floor whilst it is protected for instance.

Promesh RollAll of the Protec Protection products have been designed and developed with the customer and application in mind but what about general floor protection where the exact extent of protection required is unknown? In these situations one of the best Protec products for protection is Promesh 2m x 50m protection roll.

When looking for a floor protection material very few are as diverse in its use as Protec’s Promesh product. Promesh and Promesh 1207, the Flame Retardant Version of the same product, offer an extremely strong protection covering that will protect against dust, dirt, paint and all manner of site debris. Its interwoven nature makes Promesh a durable protection for most floor types but specifically on carpets and vinyl floors. In addition Promesh can be tacked, stapled or nailed with its uniform strength remaining intact and not ripping.

Supplied on a 2m x 50m roll Promesh can be quickly installed into rooms and open spaces as well as corridors and unlike some protection product the roll is easy to handle, work with and store before and after use.

A truly great product all round.

Temporary DownpipeOne of the best aspects of working within the construction industry is the rich language and variation of terminology used to describe Protection products that we supply at Protec and there are few products that demonstrate this more than the Temporary Rain Water Downpipe.

Temporary Downpipe attracts many colourful descriptions from buyers, site personnel and members of the public alike so much so they become part of the protection vocabulary. The most popular terms for this product are derived from its appearance as a long polythene tube that attaches to the guttering and trails down the building to the nearest drain. Elephant Trunking, Rain Water Socks and Giant Condoms are frequently used by customers and prospects to describe the product that is the Temporary Downpipe.

A popular product, the Temporary Downpipe can be used to direct rain water from the roof and guttering and direct it to a location on the ground away from foundations and other areas that could be damaged by excessive amounts of water pouring unchecked from the roof.

The Temporary Downpipe is supplied on a 200m and has a 254mm opening which makes it suitable for almost any downpipe opening. Furthermore the Temporary Downpipe is supplied with 25 350mm Cable Ties to secure the Downpipe to the opening of the guttering down to the size required.

For further information please contact the Protec Customer Services team or why not order your Downpipe today.

Rotting CillsA homeowner recently called us regarding an issue he is experiencing at home. The house is quite old and has lovely wooden window sills but unfortunately they are rotting externally. Our Window and Sill Protectors although are a ‘temporary protection’ solution are being used as protection from the elements until they will need replacing.

They are going to be painted green too!

PVC Fencing MeshQuick and Easy PVC Banners Branding Service.

We have printed a PVC Mesh Banner for a client to go onto security fencing to create a more attractive looking entrance to the premises. We think it’s a brilliant idea and still find it very impressive with just how real it looks!

Protec designed this custom banner for the customer purely from a photograph – no artwork was supplied.

Because of the mesh qualities of the material it will allow the airflow through the material. Banners can be fully hemmed and eyeleted at no extra cost.

Any size, any print – we can achieve it!

Plaster Boarding a Ceiling with ZipWallThis is a nifty application for our Zipwall temporary screening system.

Predominantly Zipwall is used for screening off areas but plasterers whilst using it have also commented on another great use – holding plasterboard up on ceilings.

Another application for this fantastic product.

Often when plaster boarding ceilings, a lot of dust and dirt can be created – particularly from taking down older ceilings – so the Zipwall is also good for screening too.

Construction SiteWhen ordering any materials for delivery to a construction site there is always a degree of concern as to when the materials will arrive, whether they will be delivered to the correct address and who will take delivery of them.

At Protec we strive to alleviate this concern by offering a number of order features which are designed to provide the customer with the up most confidence that their goods will be delivered to the correct address on the correct day and as required.
