The temporary protection is mainly being used as floor protection on the Kier project in Kingston where they are building a new head quarters for the mobile phone giant Digicel.
Read Part 1: New Home Part 1 – Redecorating
During the redecorating process it has become apparent that plastic protection in the form of Protec Proplex, Promesh, Barrier sheeting and Carpetshield are all highly superior to cotton Dust Sheets or bits of old curtain and carpets.
In one room in the house the existing carpet has been left down unprotected (as it is ultimately going to be removed to expose the wooden flooring underneath). This has so far offered protection against wall paper paste and dust and debris but unlike the Proplex in the next room (which is protecting an exposed wooden floor) it has quickly become dirty and is very difficult to clean.
We love working with schools and colleges, they provide the most interesting and diverse challenges that require our temporary protection products.
Our latest commission has been from Macclesfield College, where we have been asked to help protect their sports hall floor – made from finished wood – from summer events and activities.
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.
Protec can produce to order various Colours in Proplex. We are currently manufacturing Yellow sheets for one customer. Why?
Well for one, it can help you stand out from the crowd! It can also identify whose sheets are who’s on a site.
We can also customise Proplex with your corporate logo and other branding, and produce the Proplex material to any colour you wish – just send us the Pantone references!
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.
