On many construction sites when scissor-lifts, forktrucks and other heavy machinery are being used, the standard protection board is not strong enough and tends to crush easily. Proguard Bufferboard is manufactured from heavy-duty, honeycombed formation, polypropylene board to provide the ultimate impact resistant floor protection. It is suitable for use with wheeled scaffold towers and powered plant. Unlike plywood, OSB and hardboard, Bufferboard is not affected by moisture and can be easily cut with a knife. The cellular form also provides a high level of slip resistance.
There are also many alternative uses for Bufferboard beyond being floor protection. Some non-traditional uses have included being used as pallet racking protection, as temporary site hoarding and for boarding windows, to name just a few.
Why use Bufferboard instead of plywood and hardboard for floor protection?
