For many years, the preferred material for decking suspended timber floors has been chipboard – and that shows no sign of changing, according to Norbord, manufacturer of engineered wood-based panel products.
Norbord claims that its CaberBoard flooring range is the UK’s best-selling chipboard flooring product. The company explains that the range’s “handy dimensions” allow ease of handling and its robust tongue-and-groove edging produces a secure and even surface.
As the housing market continues to grow strongly, tradesmen are obliged to look for methods of completing projects faster and more efficiently. “Consequently, more of them are looking beyond the standard CaberFloor P5 panel and choosing Norbord’s advanced CaberDek and CaberShieldPlus systems,” Norbord comments.
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, Norbord says.www.norbord.co.uk
