Spillages, accidents and general wear and tear can all cause damage to flooring during a build project, and can furthermore 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 answer to any successful construction project, the avoidance of preventable delays is going to be of paramount importance in the achievement of a builds milestones and budget. Central for this is ensuring all completed aspects of the project are adequately shielded from other construction related activities which might certainly be on-going. One prime example is flooring.
Flooring activities in a build project are more commonly being brought toward speed up the build process. As a result, it is crucial that if flooring installation is done, the chosen finish is safe from those activities which still must be carried out.
Picking out the correct kind of Corex is important which requires both good planning and data of the wide range of floor protection products available. The sort of protection will typically depend on what floor or finish requires protection. Conventional flooring such as carpets, vinyl floor, timber, stone and ceramic all have different protection products available.
Other considerations when choosing floor protection include who and exactly what the floor will demand protection from, and exactly how long the security will be needed. Correx is surely an extruded twinwall fluted/corrugated polypropylene sheet and offers efficient methods to a wide variety of 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 water-resistant. Polypropylene kkdcmv is a tough material that remains usable at low temperatures. It has excellent chemical resistance and good fatigue resistance with very low moisture absorbency. It is possible to thermoform and can be fabricated and welded. It is perfect for cladding applications as it can with stand repeated steam cleaning.
Another important consideration is if the floor protection will need to be flame retardant. If sticking with the construction industry’s Joint Code of Practice, chances are that any floor protection product used will need to be flame retardant. Ensuring this can be simple just like any flame retardant protection product will 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 which range from 2mm to 5mm with all the crush strength and impact resistance from the boards increasing using the thickness of the board.
Along with the standard range, anti-static and flame retardant versions can be found upon request.
Standard – Used in general applications
Flame Retardant – All flame retardant grades have full LPCB accreditation (further details are available from the Cordek Sales Team).
Anti-Static – A high performance anti-static board to use in particularly sensitive locations such as Nuclear Power Stations.
