Blog / New FloorShell ProBoard | Temporary Floor Protection Board

September 27, 2019

When it comes to surface protection, there are a wide range of temporary floor protection board and film products to choose from. How do you even begin to compare and decide which product is the best for your specific job type? From rolls of builder’s paper and sheets of corrugated plastic to carpet and hard surface protection films, it’s easy to become overwhelmed.

Our recommendation is to take a step back and think about what is important on your jobsite. Does the protection need to withstand heavy traffic and equipment? Will it need to repel water or paint? Will the surface protector need to be reused? Are additional supplies, such as tape needed? These are all important questions to ask yourself when deciding on which product to use.

What is Surface Protection?

Surface Protection is simply the use of protective products and materials used to protect different surfaces and floor on a jobsite. It is a critical step to avoid costly repairs in industries such as construction, flooring, concrete, disaster restoration and remodeling projects.

Surface protection products include:

FloorShell ProBoard

FloorShell ProBoard is 2X thicker than our popular FloorShell, but is available in easy-to-use sheets. This heavy duty, temporary floor protection board is:

  • Eco-friendly and made from 100% recycled fibers
  • Leak resistant and reusable
  • Highly impact resistant
  • Breathable to protect wood, concrete, stone, tile, vinyl and other flooring types

What sets this protector apart from the rest? A sheet of ProBoard is light and easy to re-position if needed. The surface protector lays out fast, and is designed with our exclusive spill guard technology. This floor protector is available in both 4′ x 4′ and 4′ x 8′ sheets, and can be secured on the job site with the help of our FloorShell Seam Tape.

How To Install FloorShell ProBoard

FloorShell ProBoard is easy to install, but without the rollback.

  1. First, calculate the square footage of the area you will be protecting and determine how many sheets you’ll need to protect your floor.
  2. Clear and clean the surface you’ll be protecting.
  3. Next, simply layout the FloorShell ProBoard sheets on the surface
  4. Tape the seams together using FloorShell Seam Tape (do not let seam tape stick to the floor)
  5. Secure the perimeter to your surface using a less aggressive painter’s tape.
  6. Once finished, remove the seam tape and reuse if there is minimal damage.
