Spillages, accidents and general wear and tear can all cause damage to flooring during a build project, and can in addition have a big impact on programme delays and cost. Be sure that your construction project reduces this risk by protecting flooring early on in the build process.
With programming and budget considerations key to any successful construction project, the avoidance of preventable delays will be of paramount importance within the achievement of the builds milestones and budget. Central to this is making certain all completed aspects of the project are adequately protected against other construction related activities which may be on-going. One prime example is flooring.
Flooring activities within a build project tend to be more commonly being brought toward accelerate the build process. As such, it is essential that whenever flooring installation is complete, the chosen finish is protected from those activities which still need to be performed.
Choosing the correct form of Floor Protection is important and this requires both good planning and data of the wide range of floor protection products available. The kind of protection will typically rely on what floor or finish requires protection. Conventional flooring like carpets, vinyl floor, timber, stone and ceramic all have different protection products available.
Other considerations when selecting floor protection include who and just what the floor will need protection from, and how long the safety will likely be needed. Correx is definitely an extruded twinwall fluted/corrugated polypropylene sheet and provides efficient solutions to a wide variety of applications.
It really is favoured by industry because of its lightweight structure and competitive pricing. Correxis ismore durable than corrugated fibreboard, lighter in weight than wood and both chemical and water resistant. Polypropylene kkdcmv is actually a tough material that continues to be usable at low temperatures. It offers excellent chemical resistance and good fatigue resistance with very low moisture absorbency. It is possible to thermoform and will be fabricated and welded. It is perfect for cladding applications as it can with stand repeated cleaning.
Another essential consideration is whether or not the ground protection will need to be flame retardant. If adhering to the construction industry’s Joint Code of Practice, it is likely that any floor protection product used would have to be flame retardant. Ensuring this can be simple just like any flame retardant protection product may have a Loss Prevention Standard (LPS) approval stamp clearly printed.
Whatever floor protection you decide on to your build project, make sure it is fit for purpose plus it should.Correx boards are available in a number of different thicknesses which range from 2mm to 5mm using the crush strength and impact resistance in the boards increasing with the thickness from the board.
Along with the standard range, anti-static and flame retardant versions are available upon request.
Standard – Used in general applications
Flame Retardant – All flame retardant grades have full LPCB accreditation (further data is available from the Cordek Sales Team).
Anti-Static – A very high performance anti-static board for use in particularly sensitive locations such as Nuclear Power Stations.
