The Cutty Sark Ship Uses Proplex to sail again
We have recently been supplying Heavy Duty Flame Retardant Proplex Sheeting 4mm to the restoration and conservation project of the historic Cutty Sark.
One of the only 3 clipper ships of its kind with remaining original compound construction (wooden hull on an iron frame) – originally built in 1869, caught fire and suffered major fire damage during a conservation work in 2007.
Due to re-open as a museum and tourist attraction in 2012 Protec are proud to be part of such a historic restoration process!
A member of the public has thought of a great application for 5mm Proplex. He wanted something to provide impact protection so he can place his tropical fish tank on top of it.
The Proplex 5mm will protect the cabinet below from any marks and scratches. The black 5mm sheet was preferred so it is hidden from site and will give the highest level of impact protection.
Our Proplex Plastic Sheeting has numerous uses in many environments, but we never cease to be amazed by inventive uses for our surface protection material.
Apparently it is excellent material for making a Guinea Pig cage; it can be cut to size very easily, is light weight but also very strong, and it will clean easily too.
Metal grids can be used to make the bulk of the cage as per the picture (right).
Recently we were contacted by a member of the public who had an issue with condensation inside his newly purchased Metal Shed.
The thing took 4 days to build!! It was completed only for the owner to discover condensation occurring inside. A cost effective way of insulating the inside of the shed was needed.
We have recently supplied our 3mm standard proplex to make models for a primary schools nativity!
The Proplex will be cut and painted to make different figurines to include in the play.
Proplex 3mm corrugated plastic sheeting is extremely strong yet easy to cut and bend into different shapes so it is ideal for this application.
We have recently supplied a company with 3mm standard proplex for building rafts to protect water voles in local rivers.
The rafts are used to remove the Mink population from the rivers, which are a natural enemy to the endangered water voles.
Buckfast Abbey is famed for its tonic wine which was previously produced in an outdated Victorian building which did not lend itself to the modern production of the beverage.
The project involved construction of a new production and storage facility that includes many sustainable features, including:
Have you ever looked at a floor protection product online and wondered what it feels like? How strong it is? And whether it would provide sufficient floor protection?
At Protec we can supply you with a sample of many of our floor protection materials from Proplex sheet through to Barrier Sheeting. We are able to supply you with an A4 swatch of the material you are interested in, posted directly out to you at no charge.
Our 2mm FR Proplex was a selected choice for a company who design and make TV sets such as ‘Never Mind the Buzzcocks’
The Proplex 1.22m x 2.44m was ideal and it has been used for the BBC Salford Sports set in Manchester.
The Set needed all new desks and fittings so Proplex was an ideal option.
More and more requirements are coming to Protec for our Proplex corrugated Plastic sheeting for the Media Industry.
Companies are finding it an excellent choice for floor protection on sites during film or photo shoots where the floor needs protection.
The Black or White sheets can also be used as a very cost-effective backdrop too!
