When Horsham-based construction, renovation and oak framing company Cartwood UK was ordering materials for its latest project, merchant D W Nye Ltd of Kingsfold, Horsham suggested trying Norbord’s CaberShieldPlus.
Peter Woodley, co-owner of Cartwood, certainly wasn’t disappointed with the results! “It is the first time we have used a fully waterproof system like this on our developments. We were impressed with the versatility of the product and how easy it is to use. It handles well and there are no fussy storage requirements for the sheets pre-fitting. It cut nicely with a circular saw and fitted together without issue using CaberFix D4 adhesive”, said Peter.
Cartwood used CaberShieldPlus over the entire first floor level at a property development in West Sussex, and, as is all too common in the UK, the construction company was challenged with the usual rainstorms. “We had experienced extreme rainfall over the whole floor but we were really pleased it has dried without any signs of failure”, commented Peter.
So impressed was Cartwood that CaberShieldPlus will be used on all future developments and refurbishments. “We will not be using another product due to its effectiveness. Just fit and forget it!” said Peter.
CaberShieldPlus is a P5 flooring protected on both sides with a tough, waterproof coating. It is BBA approved for 60 days’ exposure to the weather when used with CaberFix D4 adhesive.
