Revolutionising Site Protection: Protecta Board Xtra vs Plywood

Revolutionising Site Protection: Protecta Board Xtra vs Plywood

Protecta Board Xtra has quickly become the preferred choice for construction and fitout surface protection, particularly during Tradies National Health Month in August. Compared to traditional non-structural plywood, Protecta Board Xtra offers numerous advantages that make it an appealing option for site protection.

One significant benefit of Protecta Board Xtra is its lightweight yet tough properties. Weighing just under 4 kg per sheet, it is much lighter than a similar-sized 17mm plywood sheet, which weighs around 26 kg. This lightweight feature makes it easier for workers to handle and lay the material, reducing the risk of strain and injury, especially on large construction sites. Protecta Board Xtra offers dual protection with a soft underside to protect sensitive surfaces. Additionally, Protecta Board's P4 rated anti-slip surface further enhances safety, preventing accidents in potentially wet and slippery conditions.

The versatility of Protecta Board Xtra adds to its appeal, as it can be ordered in L or U profiles to protect specific areas like pillars, stairs, and door frames during construction or renovation. This customised fit ensures an extra layer of protection against potential damage.

Cost considerations are crucial in construction projects, and Protecta Board Xtra gains an advantage in this aspect as well. Being less expensive than traditional plywood, and costing less to install, offers a cost-effective solution for site protection without compromising on quality and performance.

Furthermore, the environmental aspect of Protecta Board Xtra makes it stand out. The material is fully recyclable, making it an eco-friendly choice for construction companies looking to adopt sustainable practices. Its durability allows for up to 10 times of reuse, reducing waste and promoting sustainable construction practices.

While plywood still offers durability and familiarity, Protecta Board Xtra's unique features make it the preferred choice for modern construction projects. Its toughness, dual protection, anti-slip surface, lightweight, cost-effectiveness, customizability, and eco-friendly attributes make it an attractive option in the industry's move towards more sustainable and worker-friendly practices. As construction companies embrace these trends, Protecta Board Xtra is poised to play a significant role in shaping the future of site protection.
