What’s fantastic about Norbord’s CaberShieldPlus? - Builders' Questions Answered
26 June 2020

What are the benefits of using a product like CaberShieldPlus?
It has been specifically designed for buildings where the roof still hasn’t been installed or before the building is watertight. With a permanent, waterproof coating on both sides, the flooring is BBA-certified for exposure to construction work and the elements for 60 days when fixed with our CaberFix D4 adhesive. After work is complete, the floor can be wiped clean for a clean, finished floor ready for finishings such as carpet or laminate.

Why should I choose this product in particular?
Its waterproof coating and BBA-certified exposure for up to 60 days enables contractors to start laying the floor deck before the roof has been installed, helping to keep construction work progressing.

What glue should I use to secure a watertight fixing?
It should be fixed with our CaberFix D4 adhesive – a one-bottle solution for fixing flooring to joists, in T&G joints and to seal the perimeter. Foaming up it helps users see when a seal is made.

How many boards does a bottle of CaberFix D4 cover?
12 bottles will cover 66 boards (one whole pack of 22mm flooring) when using it to glue both the joist and the T&G joints

Do I need to use tape?
There is no need for tape as the glue is able to seal the floor perimeter as well as sealing the joints and bonding to the joists.

How does CaberFix D4 glue stack up against cheaper alternatives?
CaberFix D4 glue is of high quality and fully tested and approved by the BBA.  It is important to remember that users will only receive the BBA guarantee when using CaberShieldPlus and CaberFix D4 together.

What percentage of the boards are made from recycled material?
Our CaberFloor range of flooring is approximately 70% recycled wood. 30% fresh wood is used to give the board its stability and structural properties.
