Fantastic flawless flooring with CaberFloor

Floors can floor people sometimes!  One of the most important elements of a building can prove to be tricky – but our CaberFloor range has been developed for all challenges.  Popular with leading housebuilders and specifiers across the country, CaberFloor products and systems result in quality flooring finishes, saving problems and costs later.

Here we have a handy flowchart to help you choose the right flooring system for every project, coupled with handy installation guides and videos for the individual CaberFloor products. 

We already lead the field in the popularity stakes; CaberFloor P5 is the UK’s most specified moisture-resistant P5 flooring. The high-strength particleboard is ideal for domestic and most other floors and removes the need for intermediate noggins. The boards are moisture-resistant, stable, durable, easy to lay and, with a tongue and groove or square-edge profile, provide an excellent surface for subsequent floor laying operations.

Some floors require more advanced solutions and, no matter the size or shape of yours, there are key questions to ask. The first point to think about is whether the building’s roof will be in place. If the answer is no, the floor will need to withstand the elements. This is where CaberShieldPlus proves its worth. Building work can continue in all weathers – great for the UK!

CaberShieldPlus is an advanced product that has all the inherent benefits of CaberFloor P5. It also offers double-sided protection with a tough, permanent waterproof coating and is BBA approved for 60 days exposure, when laid according to the manufacturer’s instructions. It’s a non-slip, super-safe working platform that withstands high site traffic.

An alternative solution is CaberDek which is BBA approved for 42 days exposure when installed with CaberFix according to our instructions. The P5 grade flooring has the advantage of a strong, waterproof, and slip-resistant peelable film. It provides protection from the elements and construction mess and, when removed, leaves a clean, finished floor. The film is impact, puncture, and tear-resistant to withstand high site traffic.

Finally, and really important today, the materials and processes used to manufacture the product offer the reassurance of being sustainable. West Fraser’s (formerly known as Norbord) range of board products is available in a wide selection of sizes to minimise waste. All timber used is responsibly sourced and FSC certified. The panels are manufactured in the UK from locally grown timber and are net carbon negative.  Additionally, all of West Fraser’s UK mills have obtained the coveted ISO 14001 environmental accreditation. 

Samples of West Fraser construction panels can be ordered here  On our housebuilder page you can download a selection of tools including a fully-interactive guide to all West Fraser products and a checklist to make sure you have everything you need for your build.
