Waterproof flooring enables speedy building for timber frame homes

Sylva Design & Build Solutions has chosen Norbord’s flooring product, CaberShieldPlus for the new affordable timber frame homes that it is creating at Graven Hill, Bicester.

The tough P5 chipboard flooring, which has a permanent waterproof coating on both sides and a non-slip top side of the flooring to ensure a safe working platform, has been designed with the ever-changing and unpredictable British weather in mind.

Having never used CaberShieldPlus before, Sylva Design & Build Solutions did not know what to expect from the product but, Jason Bassett, commercial associate at Sylva Group, said that it worked perfectly for the project.

“By using CaberShieldPlus, the project was able to be continued despite bad weather and the fitting of flooring as the build progressed enabled us to deliver the programme on-time whilst limiting both the risk of falls from height and the risk of weather damage,” he explained.
