Norbords market-leading Caberdek floor system has been used in the construction of four high quality detached houses in rural Warwickshire.
The properties, located in the village of Fulready near Stratford on Avon, are craftsman-built using reclaimed Warwickshire brick with clay tiled roofs over.
Unlike traditional houses, these four properties have modern CAD-designed timber roof and floor structures manufactured offsite by Pasquill, one of the largest UK timber engineering companies.
Pasquill was able to design the roofs to include extra living space using special room-in-the-roof trusses.
The floors of these attic rooms, as well as those on the first floors, were created with Norbords Caberdek tongue-and-grooved boards. Made of moisture-resistant P5 particleboard and finished with a waterproof and abrasion-resistant peelclean film, Caberdek is the ideal choice for suspended timber floors, the protective film remaining in place until following wet trades have finished.
Once the room is decorated, the film can be peeled off to expose the clean dry particleboard ready to receive the desired floor finish.
Caberdek is also ideal for use where the floor is to be laid before the roof is completed. With the tongue-and-groove joints protected with Norbords special tape, a Caberdek floor can be exposed to the elements for up to 42 days without risk of damage.
