TIMco, one of the UK’s largest independent wholesale suppliers of screws, fixings and power tools accessories, has extended their offering of site protection products in the SHIELD range due to high customer demand and to strengthen their position as the ‘one stop shop’ for builder’s merchants.
Managing Director of TIMco, Simon Midwood comments: “Over the past year, we have seen an increased demand for protective products for use on construction sites and for renovators and that’s why we decided to extend our renowned SHIELD range. Extending this range demonstrates how TIMco are meeting demands and becoming a ‘one stop shop’ for builder’s merchants.”
The existing range includes, glass, carpet and hard floor films, designed to prevent common trips and slips and have now added polythene dust sheets to the range as well as cling sheets which cling to surfaces without the need for tape or adhesives. The static sheets attract dust and over-spray, providing protection during decorating and renovation works, especially over difficult to cover objects like fixed cabinets.
The new range also includes general purpose builder’s sheets to provide waterproof protection of materials, plastic cutters to custom cut sheets with tricky dimensions and to avoid wastage, as well as a protective zipper door which provides a transparent, concealed entrance to work areas and strong, durable rubble sacks to help keep work areas clear, to avoid accidents occurring.
For helping to keep things tidy on site and to further avoid mishaps during renovations at home, TIMco have also introduced two types of rubble sacks into the SHIELD range: Heavy duty rubble sacks – manufactured from strong, durable and tear resistant woven polypropylene, reusable sacks available in two sizes which have drawstring tops to keep the rubble secure and the rubble sack rolls of 30 sacks manufactured from recycled polyethylene for general waste on building sites and landscaping work.
There are also cleaning aids included in the SHIELD range such as the Heavy-Duty builders wipes: textured wipes to help remove paint, glue, adhesives, PU foam, silicone, sealants, fuel, oil and the stockinette roll, designed for cleaning oily machinery.
To complete the all-encompassing protection range, TIMco extended the range to include heavy and light duty laminated tarpaulins. Both are water resistant and feature UV protection to withstand outdoor conditions and come with rust resistant aluminium eyelets with reinforced edges, to help tie down the tarpaulin for extra protection. The heavy-duty tarpaulin also has corner eyelets for maximum coverage as well as top tear strength which competes with standard tarpaulins, making them an ideal product for protecting outdoor building projects.
