Temporary Screens and Partitions


According to Health & Safety research dust inhalation on construction sites affects many thousands of workers throughout the UK every year.

Dust from internal works, particularly in occupied areas causes disruption and can damage your reputation through a poorly presented site, not to mention the time and cost of cleanup.

For this reason Protec supply many temporary screens and temporary partition walls for building a temporary screening partition during construction work. Protec supplies the award winning, patented Zipwall screening system and screening materials. Protec's screening materials are popular for temporary factory partitioning and temporary partitions for construction. Our range of temporary site screens and partitions products include both Flame Retardant LPCB Approved and Non Flame Retardant grades.
