Surface Protection With CushionGard

Our Flame Retardant Heavy Duty CushionGard have long been a favourite for protection of curtainwalling and windows.

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.

Its flexibility makes it easy to use on doors, columns, staircases, balustrades but also on larger commercial projects for applications such as protection of escalators, lifts, mullions and furniture.

Cushiongard FR is fully certified to the LPS1207 making it an ideal product to use for commercial applications.


Carpetshield Flame Retardant

  1. Carpetshield FR is Flame Retardant to LPS1207 Certificate number 894a/01.
  2. It is Self adhesive, so no need for taping around the edges as it is sticky already.
  3. It’s specifically designed with an embossed anti-slip surface, which is safer in use than flat film alternatives.
  4. Protec supplies Carpetshield in 2 widths, options available for narrow corridors/staircases and also larger areas.
  5. Carpetshield FR is reverse wound, with the adhesive on the outside of the roll, which means it is easier to install.

Custom Printed Building Wraps

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:


  • LPCB Approved to LPS 1207
    Cert.No 364a/01
