Yellow Tongue now in 800mm wide sheets

Approx read time: 2 minutes

STRUCTAflor General Purpose is structural grade particleboard sheet flooring for use in residential & commercial buildings. It is particularly suited to platform construction (where the floor is laid prior to the erection of walls) as well as fitted floor construction.

As a part of their continual improvement, Borg Manufacturing have now changed their sheet sizing from 900mm wide to 800mm wide for 19mm YELLOWtongue. No change was made to the length. So it is still suitable to span 450mm (19mm) floor joists.

This change will happen for NHS stock in November, with an exact date to be confirmed. So please check your stock upon ordering.

Guaranteed 5 months exposure to the elements

Borg’s STRUCTAflor is the only particleboard flooring with 5 months guarantee!

EXPOSURE, STORAGE AND HANDLING

STRUCTAflor may be exposed to the weather for up to five months, however, it is always advisable to enclose the building as soon as possible after laying the floor. Any ponded water should be removed as soon as practicable. This can be achieved by drilling holes of 3mm maximum diameter at not less than 1 metre spacing through the floor where ponding occurs and sweeping water away. When storing outside, ensure packs are kept clear of the ground. Cover with waterproof sheeting laid on timber battens so that air circulates freely between the waterproof cover and the product. Handle and stack with care to avoid damage. Always wear a dust mask, goggles and gloves when working with wood products. Download Safety Data Sheet here
