Sweet success with CaberShieldPlus from Norbord
23/04/2018

CaberShieldPlus, Norbord’s most advanced flooring panel, is the system of choice for RJ Sweet Building Services in all domestic or commercial projects.

“We pride ourselves on our craftsmanship and products; so, for us, CaberShieldPlus is the only flooring we will use. We used to lay a temporary P5 floor, then replace it with a new, clean one at the end of the build. With CaberShieldPlus, we only lay one floor which offers a cost and materials saving. The waterproof coating is really hardwearing. We lay it before the roof is on, expose it to the elements and muck that’s on site, and then wash it down before we hand over the property to the new owners. I won’t use anything else."

CaberShieldPlus is the ideal flooring solution when building in Britain’s unpredictable climate.

Based on Norbord’s popular moisture-resistant CaberFloor P5 tongue-and-groove particleboard flooring panel, CaberShieldPlus is specially designed to withstand exposure to wet conditions.

Yet, unlike Norbord’s other protected flooring product CaberDek, which features a peelable film on the top surface, CaberShieldPlus has protection on both sides, not just the exposed upper surface. The top surface features a permanent non-slip coating that not only prevents damage to the board but also ensures a safe working platform. The underside is protected with the smooth coating that not only protects against damage but also makes the board easy to slide into position. For added durability, the coating applied to CaberShieldPlus is not designed to be peeled off after completion but is bonded permanently on both sides of the panel and waterproof.

With CaberShieldPlus, fast-track build programmes won’t be derailed by rain, sleet or snow. BBA-approved for up to 42 days’ continuous exposure to the elements when used with CaberFix D4 adhesive, the new board lets builders carry on building even with the roof off. The easy-to-handle 2,400mm x 600mm tongue-and-grooved panels are available in 18mm and 22mm thicknesses and are colour-coded to make it easy to identify the top surface.

Ideal for domestic new-build and refurbishment projects, as well as many commercial applications, CaberShieldPlus is delivered in packs of 80 (18mm gauge) or 66 (22mm).
