We developed BreatherShield® as a breathable, yet water resistant floor covering for our customers in the construction and refurbishment sectors. It’s an effective protective solution that allows work to continue whilst sensitive new surfaces continue drying and curing.

BreatherShield® is the perfect solid hardwood floor protection solution because it allows natural materials to cure straight after the new wooden floor has been laid. It also works great with other types of surfaces, including vinyl, stone, screed and tiling.

The material we use has been specially designed by our team of experts at Protec, ensuring it’s both breathable and durable. It’s tear and rip resistant, as well as being made from recycled materials, and can withstand water spills. The surface is soft yet strong, and it non-abrasive to prevent any damage or scratches to that new flooring.

If your site needs to comply to LPS 1207 standard, BreatherShield® is fully flame retardant and conforms to The Code of Joint Practice. It’s the perfect flame retardant protective material that doesn’t trap moisture, with a permeable membrane that allows vapour transmission and prevents sweating.

So if you need to protect new floors from spillages, debris and dust, try BreatherShield® floor protection roll. The shrink wrapped rolls are easily cut, handled and fitted by one person, and will stop your newly laid floors from suffocating and misshaping.
