Temporary Floor Protection for Carpets - Flame Retardant LPS 1207
Protec International Stock a wide range of floor protection materials for use on site (commercial, industrial or residential) or at home. We have all forms of floor covered whether its hard wood, vinyl, ceramic, carpets etc.
Whith large commercial, industrial or housing builds, for insurance purposes, fire retardancy is often a big factor when it comes to the need of temporary floor protection. Protec International have the largest range of FR materials which meet the accreditation of LPS 1207, the UK’s standard in flame retardnacy for temporaray protection materials. We will be conducting a series of blog posts on the ideal products for protecting floors during builds which also meet flame retardant requirements and our first will be on the application of carpets.
Carpetshield®FR is a floor protection film specifically for carpets, used to protect newly laid surfaces from spillages, debris and heavy foot traffic in areas where building work is still in progress. It has a low tack adhesive backing that sticks to the carpet pile without the need for taping and prevents any shifting, slipping or leakage. Its non-slip surface is ideal for quick and effective floor protection of carpeted walkways, corridors, and stairways.
The lightweight rolls are reverse wound and quickly applied by kicking the roll across the floor. After use, the carpet protection film peels away without leaving any residue.
Here are some reviews of the product which have been left on our website which you can also find on the product page, here.
Guaranteed First Class Protection
by Peter Williams, 15 Dec 2011
Usage: Protecting domestic carpets during decorating operations. Providing a medium term (max 4 weeks) covering for walked areas (hallways and adjacent to external entry doors) against dirty footwear during interior building work.
Opinion: A very easy to use product that provided comprehensive protection to domestic carpets during decorating and building operations. Significally, tradesmen who had not encountered such a product on other building jobs were very impressed by the convenience and efficiency
A walk in the park
by Bryan D, 31 Oct 2011
Usage: To protect office carpets during redecorations
Opinion: Having used many types of carpet protectors over the years, we were keen to try this one. So easy to use, rolls out better than other brands, a walk in the park compared to some. Being Flame Retardant too was another big plus. Removed very easily with no residue left. A must if you need to protect carpets.

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.

The progression of Health & Safety practices in recent years has seen a reduction in accidents and mortalities on construction sites. Through increased awareness and improved working practices the standard of health and safety has improved across most aspects of construction work in areas such as personnel, PPE, tools and equipment.
At Protec we feel that the increased use of temporary protection materials has also contributed to safer and healthier working environments through protection products that raise awareness, protect hazards and act as alternatives to some traditional protection that may inadvertently prove dangerous.
One of the main areas that protection materials have contributed toward health and safety is through the development of tested and certificated LPS1207 Flame Retardant products through the Joint Code of Practice under the Loss Prevention Certification Board (LPCB). Continue reading →
The lightweight material is much easier and less labour intensive to handle than other rigid protective boards and the large 1.5m x 100m rolls allow for large areas to be protected without the need of cutting, jointing. Continue reading →
We are often asked this very question, and for those that have had the time or need to ask, hopefully we have been able to provide all the necessary information. In some cases we have even provided the necessary support where companies have decided to change their working procedures and have adopted a “fully LPCB flame retardant policy” when it comes to using Temporary Protection Materials.

With the largest range of LPS1207 and LSP1215 certified flame retardant materials you can ensure that materials used for temporary protection on your project comply with the required standard and are certified to the LPS Standard.
We’re delighted with this incredible feedback we’ve received from a homeowner doing extensive refurbishment in her home. So often our products can be used for private domestic use as well as large commercial use, and we’re thrilled to see them put to such good use!
Take a look at the bottom of the page for a photo of our Promesh 1207 Flame Retardant floor protection in action. And we definitely approve of the wall painting!
Here is the testimonial we’ve received:
During our self build project we used the stone sill protector which was easy to cut to size to install and did a brilliant job of protecting the sills, which otherwise would have suffered from falling cement and potential damage from falling building materials.
During installation of the interior fittings and decoration we also used the Promesh 1207 and Protec flooring protector for our porcelain tiles and timber floors. Both were easy to install and were supplied in manageable roll sizes, overlapping and taping meant that we were not afraid of any hazards of tripping over or slipping and it was easy to roll up and take away from site when the project was compete.
The floor protection was excellent in that paint or water spills did not pass through to the floor finish below. It was also useful if we needed to just cover a small area of a room temporarily when we needed to do some of the final jobs.
The technical team also gave good advice on the products from the range that would be suitable for our needs.
We have been asked to supply a full range of custom-printed Flame Retardant materials to an International Main Contractor based in Muscat (Oman) for a selection of their upcoming prestigious projects.
One important thing which needs to be considered when selecting materials, is whether they are flame retardant and conform to the Joint Code of Practice. All of our Flame Retardant products are certified to LPS 1207 or LPS 1215 standards, which will always bear these marks:
