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. Make sure your construction project reduces this risk by protecting flooring early on in the build process.
With programming and budget considerations factor to any successful construction project, the avoidance of preventable delays will be of paramount importance within the achievement of any builds milestones and budget. Central to this particular is ensuring all completed facets of the project are adequately protected against other construction related activities which may still be on-going. One prime example is flooring.
Flooring activities in a build project are more commonly being brought to accelerate the build process. As such, it is essential that if flooring installation is done, the chosen finish remains safe and secure from those activities which still have to be carried out.
Choosing the correct type of Corex is essential and also this requires both good planning and data of the range of floor protection products available. The type of protection will typically depend upon what floor or finish requires protection. Conventional flooring like carpets, vinyl floor, timber, stone and ceramic all have different protection products available.
Other considerations in choosing floor protection include who and just what the floor will demand protection from, and just how long the protection is going to be needed. Correx is definitely an extruded twinwall fluted/corrugated polypropylene sheet and provides efficient answers to numerous applications.
It is favoured by industry for the lightweight structure and competitive pricing. Correxis ismore durable than corrugated fibreboard, lighter in weight than wood and both chemical and waterproof. Polypropylene kkdcmv is actually a tough material that continues to be usable at low temperatures. It provides excellent chemical resistance and good fatigue resistance with suprisingly low moisture absorbency. It is possible to thermoform and can be fabricated and welded. It is great for cladding applications as it might with stand repeated steam cleaning.
Another important consideration is if the ground protection would have to be flame retardant. If implementing the building industry’s Joint Code of Practice, it is likely that any floor protection product used will need to be flame retardant. Ensuring this is simple just like any flame retardant protection product could have a Loss Prevention Standard (LPS) approval stamp clearly printed.
Whatever floor protection you decide on for your build project, make sure it is fit for purpose plus it should.Correx boards can be found in a selection of different thicknesses ranging from 2mm to 5mm with all the crush strength and impact resistance in the boards increasing with the thickness in the board.
As well as the standard range, anti-static and flame retardant versions can be purchased upon request.
Standard – Utilized in general applications
Flame Retardant – All flame retardant grades have full LPCB accreditation (further details are offered by the Cordek Sales Team).
Anti-Static – A very high performance anti-static board for use in particularly sensitive locations like Nuclear Power Stations.
