We've Got A New Product to Offer

The first of our many new products is up and running on our website! We're happy to now offer Safety Boot Rail Protection.

Safety Boot system comprises of the yellow pieces mounted to the stairs
The new rail protection allows contractors to create free-standing OSHA compliant guardrails for perimeter protection. Safety Boot is an easy-to-use anchor that allows for wood 2" in thickness to be quickly constructed into a handrail system. Safety Boot can be drilled into concrete as well, making it ideal for commercial builders, too.
All of this prevents workers, customers, and any others on-site from taking a nasty fall. The last thing anyone wants to deal with is being sued into oblivion or getting stuck with obnoxious worker's comp hassles and lost man-hours, just get a Safety Boot.

As always, if you have any questions about surface protection, email us at sales@buildsitepro.com, call us at (541) 633-7793, or visit our website www.buildsitepro.com

New Catalog and New Products On the Way!

For the first time in three years, we're getting ready to release our latest catalog. This is a pretty big deal for Builders Site Protection, as it seemingly took ages to finalize a design, account for new and discontinued products, and to finish distributing our existing catalogs. Those three things are finally done!
The last you'll see of this catalog
The new catalog features six new products, and as we add and finalize product details on our website, we'll unveil many more details about our newest products. 

We're very excited that we'll be offering elevator protection for the first time (I can't go into too much solid deatil about that as we're still working to finalize price and shipping information)! But once we recieve our in-house samples we'll be uploading tons of information and images about the new Quickpad Elevator Protection. Elevators and stairs have been two surfaces we've been trying to protect for years, so it's a big relief to now offer protection for one of those two. 

Hopefully we get to protect elevators like this one in Germany
There are a whole lot of new things on the way, so stay tuned. As always, if you have any questions about your surface protection needs, please email us at sales@buildsitepro.com, call us at (541) 633-7793, or visit our website www.buildsitepro.com

Top 10 Things to Recycle at Your Construction Site


In this article, John Perritano rates the top 10 things to recycle-saving you money and the environment as well!  

According to the Construction Materials Recycling Association, construction and demolition waste are the largest sources of trash in the United States. The association says 325 million tons of recoverable construction debris is generated in the United States each year [source: Construction Materials Recycling Association]. In the past, all that metal, concrete, wood, block and asphalt would have ended up in a landfill. The key to a successful deconstruction project is to reuse what you can, and recycle the rest.
While not every bit of construction and demolition debris can -- or even should -- be recycled, much of what goes into a house can be reused. More information and the list is located with this link:
Wood and Lumber
Drywall
Steel
Roofing Shingles
Glass and Windows
Landscape Waste
Appliances
Concrete and Masonry
Asphalt
Copper

Selection parameters for short-term surface protection

When identifying solutions for short-term surface protection, some or all of the following five parameters should be considered:
  1. Time: How long will temporary surface protection be adhered to the product? Typical times can range from one hour to years.
  2. Temperature: What will the exposure temperature be? For example, in Phoenix or Texas, extremely hot temperatures can be common and tends to soften any adhesive films. Also, will the product be exposed to cold temperatures during shipping or storage?  Paint or spray on liquid protection for tubs or windows are both cold sensitive.
  3. Temperature exposure: What will the duration of temperature exposure be? 
  4. Substrate: Is the substrate that will be protected metal, wood, plastic, glass or other material?
  5. Conditions: What conditions will the product be exposed to, for instance, salt in coastal environments high humidity, or ultraviolet exposure from sunlight, fluorescent light or other sources?

As always, feel free to contact your surface protection experts at Builders Site Protection if you need help determining the best products to use for your particular jobsite.
