Cover Guard floor and surface protection products were developed for industrial use in the naval, cruise, ferry, luxury yacht, offshore and shipyard industries to protect floors and other surfaces during repair periods. The tradition of using of fiberboard or cardboard to protect floors and other surfaces had many drawbacks. From the extreme fire danger to a short life due to traffic or weather, there was a need for a better product.
Coverguard is extremely durable, tough and tear resistant providing protection against impact or markings. It is resistant to most chemicals, paints and is waterproof. It is manufactured from a blend of low density polyethylene flame retardant, ultraviolet, anti-static and pigment additives. Installation is quick and easy. It may be cut with scissors or a knife and simply tapped into place. The product is very easy to clean and is re-usable.
The embossed diamond deck plate pattern offers a non-slip surface for the crew.
There are many different products and grades in the Cover Guard line, however, at the
buyingnetwork.com we stock the most commonly requested "blue flooring" used in the maritime industry. It is also available in 13mil x 72" wide rolls as well 40 mil thick x 36" rolls. They also manufacture smooth surface rolls that are commonly used on walls and other surfaces. Our customers use it aboard fishing vessels, processing plants and shipyards working on many different vessels including the US Coast Guard and Navy.
All CoverGuard products have been subjected to the small flame test, large flame test , toxic gas emission test and oxygen index. Based on the results Cover Guard has been recommended/approved by many recognized international organizations and test laboratories. A partial list of approvals show the exhaustive work put into these products.
