When it comes to construction site protection, one of three methods are often used.
Admittedly, using no protection may seem as though it will keep the cost down initially.
Unfortunately, as construction takes place it is inevitable for site dirt, dust & mortar to spread across surfaces.
This, at best will provoke cleaning costs before handover. The worst-case scenario is that the surfaces have been scratched, which will need further repair or even replacement.
This, in turn, causes the issues that initially were being "avoided" - extra costs and delays in handover.
Adhesive film is a popular protection choice as it's usually the cheapest option. But does a cheaper option always give the best result? Adhesive film tends to lose adhesion and needs replacing every 4-6 weeks. When the film loses adhesion, damage can strike.
Arguably, the cost isn't as cheap as initially thought, when having to order more to replace it! The time it takes to apply or replace (cutting it to size in itself is a chore!) for it to lose adhesion is precious time and money wasted.
Ah! now here's an idea. Why not use a protective film - that is applied as a liquid? No cutting to size or wasted product allowing for time to be spent on the actual construction itself - awesome! As it is a liquid it bonds directly to the surface, ensuring no air bubbles, therefore no loss of adhesion.
The liquid then dries to form a tight, protective layer - protecting the surface from damage throughout construction.
Once it's applied, you do not have to worry about your surfaces being damaged - and you suffering the expense. When you're ready to hand over, hand peel all the construction damage away with the coating. Leaving your surfaces as clean and damage-free as when they were installed!
