West Fraser explains how CaberShieldPlus can keep you building for up to 60 days, even with the roof off.

The winter wonderland is not so wonderful for builders – so now is the time to look at products and systems that can fight back against snow, ice, rain and wind.

West Fraser’s CaberShieldPlus is produced from the company’s moisture-resistant CaberFloor P5 tongue-and-groove particleboard flooring panel, but is specially designed to withstand exposure to wet conditions.

CaberShieldPlus has protection on both sides, not just the exposed upper surface. The top surface features a permanent non-slip coating that prevents damage to the board and ensures a safe working platform. The underside is protected with the smooth coating that protects against damage and makes sure that the board slides easily into position. For added durability, the waterproof coating applied to CaberShieldPlus is not designed to be peeled off after completion but is bonded permanently on both sides of the panel. 

BBA-approved for up to 60 days’ continuous exposure to the elements when used with CaberFix D4 adhesive, the board lets builders carry on building even with the roof off. 12 bottles will cover 66 boards (one whole pack of 22mm flooring) when using it to glue both the joist and the T&G joints.

After work is complete, the floor can be wiped over for a clean, finished floor ready for finishings such as carpet or laminate.

Colour coded
The 2,400mm x 600mm tongue-and-grooved panels are available in 18mm and 22mm thicknesses and are colour-coded to make identification of the top surface straightforward. CaberShieldPlus is delivered in packs of 80 (18mm) or 66 (22mm).

All West Fraser panel products produced in the UK are net carbon negative and manufactured in mills that have obtained the environmental ISO 14001 accreditation. Responsibly sourced, the panels are FSC certified and created from locally grown timber, cutting embodied carbon from transportation.
