A busy construction site carries the potential of at least one accident with heavy equipment, dropped tools, and constant foot traffic involved throughout the process.
Ideally, a prepared site manager will plan ahead to make sure the finished project is always protected reliably. One of the best ways to do that in many cases is by using high quality, durable, and economical construction floor board.
If you want to get the most out of your construction floor board, follow these three simple steps at every job site:
Step One: Prep the surface
If you are going to use construction floor board to protect a floor that’s going to have a lot of traffic, it’s vital that the surface be properly prepared before the paper is laid out. This means a thorough cleaning so there’s no debris underneath the paper that can cause damage to hardwood, stone, tile, or vinyl from work boots or equipment.
It’s also a good idea to make sure beforehand that you have an adequate supply of material and tape, so measure the areas you’re going to need to protect and ensure you have enough floor board necessary.
Step Two: Cut and tape
Our construction floor board comes in large rolls of 38” x 100’, providing coverage to many different types of floors. Be sure to give it some thought and make your cuts as strategically as possible because every cut end is another seam that will require covering with tape.
Also keep plenty of high-quality construction tape on hand and use it liberally to seal all seams and connect every strip. The goal, of course, is to create a perfect barrier so that nothing, not a speck of dust or a drop of oil, makes it onto the protected surface.
Step Three: Clean up and reuse
A major benefit of high-quality construction floor board paper is that it is durable and can often be reused. At Oren International, our floor board is .042 high-sized chipboard, which is thicker than Rosin and Masonite. It is heavy duty and non-staining, so in many cases, you should be able to pull up your tape and roll your paper right back up to use another day.
Using reliable construction floor board rolls can save money:
It’s quick and easy to roll out and roll back up, saving on labor costs.
It’s tough and durable, saving money on repairs to the protected surfaces.
It’s reusable, so you won’t have to invest as much in floor protection.
