Barrier Sheet, a more durable protection material.
Sometimes regular screening/surface protection material, such as polythene, just don’t measure up. Barrier Sheet is a highly durable alternative made of reinforced polyethylene.
We regularly come across a number of applications from our clients that require a material for screening or protecting floors. The usual request is for a polythene like material that can be used to protect valuable surface from a range of foot traffic, whether a newly laid floor on a construction project or a school/leisure gym floor during events such as exams.
Regular polythene can often do the job but may degrade after use and certainly isn’t appropriate to store away once finished and re-use again at a later date. For a more durable material, that is hard-wearing and re-usable we recommend Barrier Sheet FR.
A strong tensile strength and flame retardant properties ensure enough durability to last prolonged and repeated use. A smooth surface also means reduced abrasion on the surface that the material would be protecting.
As well as strength and durability Barrier Sheet also offers outstanding resistance to vapour making it a great option as a screening material to protect from environmental stress such as wind and water.
For a stronger screening/polythene material that will last the duration of your construction project or event, look to Barrier Sheet.
