When it comes to moving heavy machinery, floor protection becomes a real issue. Traditionally strong products such as steel sheeting were required to take the weight of the machinery whilst protecting the floor adequtely. However, one drawback to steel sheeting is that it can damage the floor after repeated use.

A large engineering Machinery installer which works in various industries has started using our 3mm Proplex floor protection as a replacement to steel sheeting. It performs brilliantly and doesn’t mark the floors like the steel does.

Our Proplex surface protection stole the show in Channel 5’s new programme ‘Half Built House’ last night (July 24).

Protec's Proplex surface protection sheets being used on Half Built HouseWhile interior designer, property renovator and presenter Sian Astley and the team tried to fix a DIY disaster in Eastbourne, our Proplex surface protection preserved the new wood flooring and tiles throughout the kitchen, dining and living room areas.

It meant that the ‘Half Built House’ team could get on with rebuilding the interior of the house – and meet the tough two-week deadline – without worrying about destroying the work they had already done on the floors.

Our temporary protection products are brilliant for these types of tight space and tight deadline projects. You can continue to work in-situ, different trades can follow each other quickly, there are no replacing damaged fixtures and fittings and less clean-up, which all saves time and money.

Proplex is a great material because it is economical, strong and very lightweight. It is tear, puncture and impact resistant and waterproof but easy to cut, crease and bend into shape. Proplex is available in 2mm, 3mm and 5mm thicknesses and it can be custom printed.
