In recent years the scale of DIY projects has increased on every level from small projects in the home to larger self build initiatives and whilst the complexity of projects has changed with more advanced tools, materials and working practices many house holders are now following the example of contractors by also investing in temporary protection.
Traditionally Protec have catered specifically to trade contractors and the range of products supplied has reflected this with large format protection rolls, own branding and an extensive range of protection products for a multitude of applications. From these origins products have been created to cater for various bespoke site requirements and it is through this that many house holders have found their way to Protec whether through seeing the Protec branding on protection materials used in their home by contractors or through a visit to the Protec website.
At Protec we try to care for the environment as much as we do for our customers.
For some time we haven taken matters of environmental protection, consideration to sustainable sources, and overall impact of our company quite seriously.
One of the simplest ways we – and any company – can take the same considerations is by recycling unneeded or unwanted materials. All kinds of common materials can be recycled, from paper, card, food, foil, plastics can all be professionally recycled.
