James Jones chooses EGGER Protect for latest processing plant

  • 10 Sep 2018

James Jones & Sons Ltd recently specified EGGER Protect for durable, non-slip structural flooring at its new secondary processing and treatment facility at Hangingshaw, near Lockerbie.

The 20,000 square metre building is the centrepiece of a recently completed £17 million development designed to increase the leading sawmiller and timber processor’s production of fencing products.

These include incised posts that have grown rapidly in popularity since James Jones launched them five years ago.

Alan White, Director of Sales for EGGER Building Products, commented: “This is a less-common application of EGGER Protect which is usually used in housebuilding.

“A market-leading structural flooring panel, Protect is made from our P5 flooring-grade chipboard with a durable, anti-slip, moisture-resistant surface layer.

“This surface layer is applied to both the top and underside of the board, resulting in a product that offers protection from moisture penetration, not just during construction but for the life of the floor.”

Specifying EGGER Protect for this application also offers health and safety benefits, given that the textured surface offers market-leading anti-slip characteristics, as well as being hard-wearing and robust.

When used with EGGER D4 Joint and Joist Adhesive as part of the EGGER Advanced Flooring System, it also carries a unique lifetime guarantee.

Tobbe Sandberg, technical manager at James Jones, added: “The 18 acre Hangingshaw development is a strategic investment for the company. This new facility is designed to enhance our position as of the UK’s biggest suppliers of sawn timber products including carcassing, fencing, pallet wood and heavy sections.

“The secondary processing facility is central to the production and storage of our fencing products and we were looking for a structural flooring board that not only had the technical properties we needed but an appearance that enhanced the look of our showpiece building.

“We have installed EGGER Protect flooring on all of high-level walkways and access platforms around the advanced production machines.

“It is durable, easy to install and keep clean and is not slippery even with moisture or sawdust on it. And, importantly, it also looks good!”
