Protective film helps prevent on-site damage to boards

One of Norbord’s flagship flooring products is CaberDek, made from the same moisture-resistant particleboard as the standard CaberFloor P5 but with a protective non-slip film applied to its upper surface.

Its protective film prevents rain and frost damage to the new floor surface as well as providing a safe non-slip working surface for the construction team.

CaberDek can – it is claimed – be left exposed like this, and remains BBA approved for up to 42 days without risk of damage, provided it is correctly installed with Norbord’s CaberFix adhesives. Even after the building is weather-tight, the floor surface remains protected from following trades such as plastering and painting.

CaberDek comes in easy-to-handle 2400mm x 600mm panels produced in thicknesses of 18mm and 22mm. Suitable for fixing to traditional sawn timber or engineered-timber joists, including metal-web joists, it can be fixed with nails, screws, and with Norbord’s own specially-formulated adhesives.

This system consists of CaberFix T&G adhesive, CaberFix Joint&Joist adhesive and CaberFix Tape.
