Floor Protection, a cheap insurance

Too many building  sites today are leaving floors unprotected and accidents can always set your project back, so laying down adequate flooring protection before any work begins is a necessity!

The floors end up being scratched or dented from works or traffic, costing the builder of homeowner to repair. Clients are not happy receiving damaged flooring at handover when a little bit of care would have made a works of difference.

Supabord floor protection is easy to roll out, covers wall to wall and can be removed easily for re use.  The average cost for 100m2 house protection is $350 where the cost to replace one damaged board in a pre-finished oak floor is about the same.

Builders and DIY renovators have found other uses for Supabord, cupboards benches and stairs are popular for protection for the mess of construction.

It is worth taking the time to budget for floor coverings as part of your overall project costs. Ensuring your flooring is protected with SupaBord during builds is vital and can prevent missed deadlines over-spend on budgets and potential headaches.

SupaBord Heavy duty is available from selected Mitre 10 and Home hardware stores. Don’t miss our monthly specials.

Space Is Key

Floor protection is a must have for hardware stores boasting a diverse and complete product range. With Bunning’s holding Ramboard in all their stores and larger IHG stores all stocking Supabord, Thor, Garboard or their own product, the smaller stores are beginning to realize the potential and uptake is coming along across more rural and smaller hardware stores as the demand from customers grows.

Regardless of a stores turnover, there is always the need to conserve space. Many floor protection brands have products which come on larger pallets with exorbitant dimensions which are simply unsustainable for most hardware stores. Furthermore, a small roll can be significantly more convenient for a customer and is also easier to work with. When it comes to floor protection, bigger is not always better.

Supabord is one brand which offers the sort of houseability which enables stores to display it on a presentable pallet without being overbearing and requiring a great deal of floor space. With roll dimensions of 80cm tall by 25cm wide, it all sits conveniently on an 80cm x 80cm pallet.

Consider Supabord if your store is looking to get a low fuss, high quality floor protection product.

5 reasons NOT to use plastic sheeting for temporary surface protection

1. Non-breathable – plastic sheeting can cause patterns on curing floors
2. Environmentally unfriendly – plastic sheeting is a chemical-based product
3. Condensation – plastic sheeting traps moisture causing condensation, preventing the natural curing process of surfaces including tile grout and oiled floors 
4. Flimsiness – plastic sheeting is thin, tearing easily and flimsy, requiring several layers to cope with construction traffic
5. Slippery – plastic sheeting becomes unsafe and slippery if wet, causing accidents on site

Synthetic V Natural

5 reasons why you should NOT use Corflute when protecting floors and surfaces:

1. Corflute is a synthetic polypropylene product, which is non-breathable
2. The internal vertical rib structure limits impact protection
3. Compressed corflute can leave ribbed marks on floors
4. Corflute is expensive and cumbersome to handle, store, freight and install
5. Corflute cannot be recycled, increasing the carbon footprint of the construction project and ending up in landfill

SupaBord is a robust 100% recycled natural product, which is why it is fast becoming the preferred product of choice for temporary floor protection by trade contractors worldwide.
