Last week Protec attended the Toolfair exhibition at Coventry Ricoh Arena.

We were showing off our new door-way dust seal, ZipDoor. With lots of tradesman varying from builders and electricians to joiners everyone was pleased to see a very quick and cost effective solution to limiting dust travelling around a house when carrying out any messy work. Usually this is a problem point that is resolved by using dust sheets and tapes however this is never as simple as it sounds with dust sheets often being heavy and falling down and not to mention getting very dirty with continual use. All of this is a clear indication of the benefits of ZipDoor but the overiding factor that brought people to purchase the product was its professional look when using it in a residential/domestic setting. Whereas a dust sheet can look unprofessional and messy people loved how ZipDoor looked when used and clearly saw how their clients would appreciate it being brought along to a job. Within an industry when so much business is based upon reputation and referrals ZipDoor is a perfect addition to any tradesmans arsenal of tools.

DoorFrame Protection

Doorframes are not the first and obvious points on a build that require protection from accidental damage. Despite this, the very nature of the doorway being an access point means it is very common that a workman may cause accidental damage while carrying tools or equipment to other areas of the site.  Protec offer Foam Door Jambs to protect frames from accidental knocks and scrtatches with is high impact resistance. Protec’s Door Jambs are a 2m one-size fits all product which are simply wrapped around the frame and cling to it without need for additional fixings such tape or ties.

So next time you are on a job and are worried about damage or replacing doorframes then look no further than Protec’s Door Jamb Protector.

Proplex 2mm (Door Size)Protecting doors from damage can be a time consuming activity that often falls short of the total protection required to ensure that damage is prevented.
