New F1 floor protection membrane

Protect have introduced a new high performance and multi-purpose coated non-woven membrane designed to provide surface protection to a wide range of floor substrates.

Launched this month the new, yellow semi-translucent material with integrated lap and sealing tape has a grid printed across the whole surface which promotes simple alignment and installation. The membrane is manufactured from a coated polypropylene non woven spunbond and is 100% recyclable.

Protect F1 will ensure that all floor areas are left clean, dry and entirely protected whilst works are in progress. The membrane is completely waterproof and resistant to traction and tearing. It’s easy to cut and lightweight to handle in 1.5 x 50m rolls and easily brushed/mopped to reduce excessive build up of debris and any associated damage. The integrated lap and seal tapes speed up the installation and provide a seal at the overlap regardless of the conditions on site.

Craig Fyall, Director of Sales, comments:

“Research by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) has identified over 90% of floor slip accidents in the UK occur on wet floors, mostly on relatively smooth/shiny floors. A minimum Pendulum Test Value (PTV) of 36 or more must be achieved to avoid personal injury claims and ensure a good floor slip resistance obtained on both dry and wet floors. Protect F1 achieves a PTV of 107 dry and 40 wet so achieving never less than a ‘low’ slip potential.”
