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.

The doors and doorways on construction sites may be considered to be one of the most at risk areas of damage on a construction site after the floors. Doorways and doors are potentially at risk from site traffic passing in and out of them all day for the duration of a project and it is for this reason that Protec have developed and can supply a combination of protection products to firstly raise awareness and secondly cushion any impact that may be encountered.

Protec Door Sleeves and the Flame Retardant version, FR Door Sleeves, are large format polythene bags essentially which are sealed on three sides and can be slipped over the door and folded back on themselves to totally encapsulate the door. They are supplied on a roll and are peeled off one at a time when required thus allowing for easy storage of the remaining sleeves that are not used. The great advantage of using door sleeves is that they completely cover the door (whether the door is in transit, storage or hung) and protect from dirt, paint, mortar/plaster splashes and scratches throughout the time that they are in place.
Whilst the Protec Door Sleeves are a fantastic concept for door protection one query that customers often raise is impact resistance, a valid point when considering site traffic more often than not includes wheel barrows, tool belts and all manner of materials being carried through doorways. The Door Sleeves will protect against light scratching but in order to make the protection of the doors more effective we would suggest Proplex 2mm Door Size sheets (available in Standard and Flame Retardant) are stuck directly to the door sleeve on either side of the door. The 2mm thick Proplex provides impact resistance which will deflect and absorb any impact from strikes against the door consequently protecting the finished door underneath.
The main benefit of using the Proplex Door Sheet and Door Sleeve together is that the Proplex can be stuck directly to the door sleeve with a High Tack Cloth 75mm Tape which will hold it firmly in place. Proplex Door sheets can be used independently to protect doors but there is usually the issue of taping them to a finished door which can be problematical, even with low tack tapes to the extent that residue is left by tape or the protection falls off.
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. Many different types of material have been suggested for use in protecting doors such as bubble wrap, corrugated card and cotton dust sheets which whilst effective to a point often obstruct work around the doors due to poor fitting of the protection. At Protec we have numerous protection materials designed specifically for use in door protection and by using them together a total door protection solution is provided. The next time you are protecting doors on site use Protec Door Sleeves, Proplex Door Size and High Tack Cloth Tape 75mm to ensure that your doors are protected throughout your project.
