Type of Flooring Protection:

Paper

Paper protection is suitable for all hard surfaces and resilient surfaces but doesn't work well to protect carpets as it can tear when flexing under footsteps. Paper products are breathable in order that glue fumes and cement curing vapors can escape.

· Ramboard™ A coated compressed paper board 38 mils thick that's breathable, water-resistant and made from recycled paper.

· Kraft paper is a lightweight brown paper that is cheap however doesn't afford any impact protection and might simply tear

· Scrim paper may incorporate coatings or reinforcements to make them water-resistant as well as scrim threads to reinforce the paper and forestall tearing. These improved papers are longer lasting than common Kraft paper or rosin paper however they are additionally too thin to supply a lot impact protection.

Polyethylene films are designed for one-time use and do not use recycled materials making them a poor alternative in maintainable protection. Protection films are available in a variety of adhesion "tack". Hard surface protection films can have a decrease tack and color than carpet protection which wants a more aggressive glue to hold onto carpet fibers successfully.

Wood Products

Plywood and Masonite are commonly used as protection on commercial projects with lots of foot traffic. Masonite is a wood product made from wood fibers not like plywood which is an precise sheet of thin wood. Each plywood and Masonite are sold in the usual dimension of four feet by eight feet and are more expensive per square foot than paper or polyethylene products.
