WRX Heavy Duty Reusable Floor Protection Review

Posted Apr 15, 2023 | Masking equipment, Product Reviews | 3 comments

WRX Heavy Duty Reusable Floor Protection is available online. A 30 square meter roll (enough for two medium rooms) is likely to set you back around £80. You can use it to protect any hard flooring, like laminate, tile, stone, or even lino. The idea is simple; lay it out to protect a floor while you carry out any type of renovation work in the room.

WRX Heavy Duty Reusable Floor Protection is made from a very tough material, which is nearly impossible to rip. It has a slight tackiness to one side which sticks to the floor, and a softer fleecy side on which to work.

 

My WRX Heavy Duty Reusable Floor Protection Review

 

I have used a lot of different products to protect flooring in the past, from the trusty dustsheet, to Correx and everything in-between. I’ve even used similar products to the WRX Floor Protection.

Nothing quite comes close though. WRX Heavy Duty Reusable Floor Protection is easily applied, and because of the wide roll, it doesn’t take long to cover a whole floor. It’s thin too, so it will easily fit under doors and plinths. Even though it is thin, there is a little bit of cushioning, which protects the floor to some extent from the impact of tools you may accidentally drop while you work.

No paint, oil, or any other liquid will seep through the material, and because there is a slight tackiness to one side, once you’ve applied WRX Heavy Duty Reusable Floor Protection, you know it will not move until you remove it. This is a breath of fresh air to be honest, particularly if you’re used to dust sheets which slide around all the time.

The only real downside is the price I suppose. It costs roughly £40 to sheet a medium sized room with WRX Heavy Duty Reusable Floor Protection, so it’s more expensive than most of the other options. However, it is a better product and will keep the floor clean and safe from damage, so I suppose it comes down to your budget. It’s also easy to use this floor protector multiple times, which is another bonus. I’d recommend this product to anyone. Click here to see online prices.

    Seems to be solving a problem that doesn’t really exist. I use the non slip dust sheets on hard floors and normal dust sheets on carpets, never had an issue with either. Plus, sheets can be taken out onto the street or into the garden, shaken and washed. What happens to the slightly sticky side on this roll of plastic when it picks up dust and bits from the floor it’s been covering? It becomes useless. I suppose if you had to cover a room or thoroughfare for semi long term works then this might be a solution but I’d rather not waste the money.

      Sheets are ok for when you’re in, then out of a room. But even non-slip sheets get kicked around, and you need something more substancial when you’re spraying.

        Have to say I disagree with you on both points. Yes a corner of a sheet may get flicked up but how hard is it to just knock it back with the toe of your shoes?! As far as spraying goes I’ve been spraying for at least 10 years now and have never had a problem with any overspray lifting up my sheets and getting underneath! Also, I’ll go around the edge of the room masking off with paper anyway and we all know paper breaks down in landfill better than plastic. I’m pretty sure Everbuild did a product called roll and stroll which was very similar and the one occasion I used it I found the sticky side picked up every speck of dust and crap on the floor that had been missed by the sweeping brush so it made it useless for the next time I wanted to use it! For me, this is just trying to re-invent the wheel and take more of our hard earned out of our pockets. Maybe you should declare if you’re in hock to the manufacurer / supplier of this product? Just my opinion!
