Packexe is a complete, total success! In June this year we recently completed some extensive redecorations of our house which included new carpets throughout the ground floor which was a fairly expensive operation. At present, my wifes mother lives with us and is aged 91 with some health problems but things became suddenly worse when she suffered a major fall and ended up in hospital for three weeks. When she returned home, she was very frail,was able to walk only with great difficulty and climbing stairs was impossible. Most distressingly, whilst in hospital she contracted an infection which caused her a loss of control and hence incontinence problems. I needed to come up with a solution as to how to protect the carpeting in some way that would be pratical and also as hygenic as possible. I recalled seeing carpet film used on exhibition stands and so searched the internet for ideas and suppliers and came across Packexe film which is normally intended for used in a redecorating situation and after speaking to your most helpful staff, they quickly despatched a roll of film to me. I have to say that it has been a complete, total success! It was easy to apply, gives a smooth, non slip yet durable surface which is waterproof and also quickly cleaned. I am amazed that it does not fray, lift, come unstuck, tear or suffer any damage along the exposed edges even when being constantly rubbed by the patients "Zimmer" frame and when lifted, there is no trace of any residue or damage to the carpet beneath..in fact if anything it seems to look cleaner! Packexe has impressed the visiting care workers and initially I used it to seal over rugs which had been bonded to the floor which greatly reduced the trip hazard. I enclose some pictures taken today and this particular piece of film has been in place for over five weeks yet still is in perfect condition. I have been completely impressed by Packexe film and would strongly recommend it's use is this rather unplanned situation! It's not a pleasant problem to have but Packexe made dealing with it a whole lot easier! (I'm pleased to add that "Mother" has now recovered from the above problems but the film remains a great safeguard and reassurance for her)

The best product on the market! We are currently having a new bathroom fitted and are using the Packexe protection flooring. It is arguably the best product on the market for the protection of carpets. We always use Packexe for any work we undertake within customer homes. By using it in my own home I am confident of its superior quality.

It has been a lifesaver! “I needed some as I had the builders in. The product has been down now on my stairs for about 5 weeks, such that the red branding has been worn away by the boots and general wear and tear. It has been a lifesaver, each night, using a dustpan and brush, we clean up and a wipe with a damp cloth and we are clean and tidy. Thanks for your help” Mark Hanson

Packexe stayed in place, no slipping up! “This was indeed very successful, stayed in place, no slipping up, one strip stayed down a week- got dirty, we pulled it up easily and put another down. Brilliant ! no dirty carpet. When ready to come home we pulled that one up and put it in the re-cycle plastic bin. Home with clean carpets. Great!” Mrs M Maddiss.

Why are there four types of film?

Each film has a unique strength of adhesive as different surfaces require different types of protection.  Packexe® has custom designed four products, each uniquely branded and colour coded for easy identification, making it simpler to find the correct product with the suitable level of adhesive for your surface.


What are the benefits in comparison to the cardboard sheeting I am currently using?

The adhesive technology of Packexe® protection films provides a secure grip, preventing movement and rucking up, therefore reducing the risk of slips and trips.  Packexe® allows protection right up to the edge of the surface, protecting against debris and spillages. The film can be vacuumed, swept or mopped throughout the project.


How long can you leave it down for?

It is recommended that Packexe® self-adhesive protection films are used for no more than 4-6 weeks


Can I use one film on all surfaces?

No, a different strength of adhesive is required for each type of surface in order for the film to stick securely and ensuring easy removal without leaving a residue.  One film will not perform on all surfaces as it will be too sticky for some, leaving residue on removal and not sticky enough for others, causing it to shift, creating an unsafe surface.


I have used the wrong grade of film on a surface and it has left residue, what shall I do?

The best way to remove any residue is by using a damp cloth with diluted white spirit, six parts water to one part white spirit. If unsure, we recommend that you contact us for advice on the best way to remove it.


Are the films re-useable or can they only be used the once?

All films in the Packexe® range offer temporary protection and can only be used once.


Can I use Packexe® films on surfaces with under floor heating?

We recommend that you turn off the under floor heating before and during application of Packexe® films, as the heat may affect the performance of the adhesive.


What will happen if I drag something sharp over the film?

Packexe® self-adhesive protection films are very durable under general wear and tear; however, they are plastic films and will tear under intense pressure. We recommend that you double layer areas that are subject to heavy traffic.


Can the products be used outside?

Packexe® Glass & Glazing can be used on external glass and windows; however the other products in the range are designed for indoor use.  If you are unsure, please contact us and we will be happy to offer advice.


Is it expensive?

No, when you calculate the cost of cleaning or replacing flooring, surfaces and glass. It is also quick and easy to use, saving on labour time and therefore cost.

Packexe® self-adhesive protection films are competitively priced in comparison to clear unbranded films, and offer higher traceability through the colour coded branding.
