Supreme Industries has introduced an innovative, cost-effective, new generation product, with a hassle-free application process, for protecting tiles from damage caused during renovation or interior work.
DURAfloorprotector has been introduced by Supreme Industries Ltd for protection of different type of floors. Ajay Mohta, General Manager-Construction Accessories Division, Supreme Industries, talks on the product´s features, applications and benefits.
Need of a new technology
While working on the interiors of any project, the flooring is completed prior to the electrical or plumbing work. However, while executing the electrical and plumbing works, due to various situations like dragging of heavy equipment or others, innumerable scratches can develop, further even resulting in breaking of tiles or flooring. As 25 per cent of the interior cost involves modern floorings, it is necessary to protect the floors till the total interior work is completed. Traditionally, Plaster of Paris (PoP) was used for this particular application, but not only is the laying and removing of PoP a time-consuming and tedious activity, it also generates harmful dust.
DURAfloorprotector is an innovative technology that provides a universal cushioned flooring protection for wood, ceramic and vinyl floors. It is a closed-cell polymer-based microcellular foam, composed of thousands of cells trapped in the foam, with the reinforcement of high performance polymer, which helps resist all types of pressure imparted. The product offers a hassle-free application process, compared to PoP, rosin paper, plastic runners or drop cloths. It does not absorb paint, oil, grease or any cleaning agents. DURAfloorprotector is flexible; can be cut to fit in any space, works well on either side - vacuum or sweep clean, and is reusable. It is environment-friendly, inert and does not promote growth of bacteria and fungi.
DURAfloorprotector keeps floors safe from damage and debris and its anti-slip properties provide a safe work environment. It is a reusable, reversible surface protection for concrete, marble, granite and other counter surfaces.
It also provides cushioned universal floor protection during construction for hardwood, ceramic tile, linoleum and carpet floors as well as sinks, tubs, walkways and decks during building or remodeling. It is already well-accepted by leading architects, interior decorators, contractors, developers and builders as there has been an urgent need for an alternative to POP and DURAfloorprotector now offers the most appropriate solution.
Supreme Industries already has a vast distribution network all over India for other DURA range of products related to the civil industry. A lot of new distribution networks have been created with the launch of this product, including people involved in trading and retailing of flooring tiles, plywood, and other products related to interior decoration industry, to make it easily available.
