Thermoplastic Sheet Protection

The upkeep of busy buildings whether they are hospitals, factories, leisure facilities, schools or public institutions, is a never-ending task.

Daily wear and tear manifests itself in deteriorating paintwork, damaged plaster, scuffed doors, scraped frames, nicks and scratches.

SDS provides two very effective solutions to the perennial problem: Defend and durablend thermoplastic sheet protection. These sheet products can be fitted to most surfaces requiring fortification and their tough, anti-abrasion finish will rebuff the damage of daily bumps and knocks.

Installed to our exacting standards, both Defend sheeting and durablend sheeting will make frequent and expensive maintenance works a thing of the past as both sheet types require little more than a light cleaning routine to keep them looking neat and smart. Using a combination of SDS’s thermoplastic sheet protection with profile protection is an excellent way to counter inevitable shocks and collisions and will ensure the fabric of your building is admirably preserved, year after year.

SDS’s Defend and durablend™ are available as BIM models in the NBS National BIM library.
