For many years, the preferred material for decking suspended timber floors has been chipboard. Norbord’s CaberBoard flooring range is claimed to be the UK’s best-selling chipboard flooring product, its handy dimensions allowing ease of handling and its robust tongue-and-groove edging ensuring a secure and even surface.
As the housing market continues to grow, tradesmen need methods of completing projects faster and more efficiently. Consequently, more of them are said to be looking beyond the standard CaberFloor P5 panel and choosing Norbord’s advanced CaberDek and CaberShieldPlus systems.
Both CaberDek and CaberShieldPlus use the same P5 moisture-resistant particleboard but also feature further added benefits meaning the floor can be laid even before the roof is installed.
CaberDek has a non-slip protective film to prevent damage to the board from following wet trades – such as plastering and painting. The film takes all the dirt and damage away with it, leaving a pristine floor surface ready to accept carpet or other finish. CaberShieldPlus also features a tough, waterproof coating permanently bonded to both top and bottom surfaces of the board.
