10 May Temporary Floor Protection for Install & Dismantle
in Floor Covering
Most if not all exhibit venues have rules regarding temporary floor protection before set-up. Many contracts state, “Contractors must maintain no damage to the floors, carpets, venues’ walls and ceilings, and must cover the floors using plastic sheeting and/or carpet to protect these assets before entering any equipment or decoration to the venues.” The last thing you want is an exit ticket with a fine for damaged property so below are the top 4 temporary protection products recommended to the exhibition industry.
Visqueen is the more familiar name for polyethylene sheeting or plastic sheeting used to protect the exhibit carpets and floors during set up. Polyethylene sheeting is light-weight and flexible, as well as waterproof. When you need heavy duty protection, scrim reinforced poly sheeting provides added durability and enhanced tear resistance. Americover’s heavy duty reinforced plastic sheeting can be used to protect flooring or it can be hung as a curtain, wall or backdrop. This product is also available in fire retardant with certification that it meets and exceeds NFPA 701 standards.

Carpet Cover is also available in a fire retardant version that meets the NFPA 701 standards, because most public events require fire retardant textiles and films.
