What cutter is used for fitting intumescent strip?

Intumescent strip is a length of plastic extrusion that contains a core of intumescent material. It’s designed to be fitted around a doorframe or to the top and sides of the door itself. In the event of a fire or extreme heat, the intumescent strip expands to close any gaps around the door. This helps prevent the spread of flames from one room to another. Read more…

COVID-19 Coronavirus supply update

The outbreak of COVID-19 has caused supply issues for many manufacturers, wholesalers and distribution companies across the UK. Protrade works in conjunction with a vast supply chain that incorporates both national and global manufacturers, ensuring we are well placed to reduce the impact of product shortages. Since the outbreak of Coronavirus, we have carefully managed our stock and apportionment, ensuring genuine trade requirements are met. Where products have been exhausted and restocking lead times have been severely compromised, we have sought to offer alternative solutions to safeguard our customers and their daily activities, reducing the potential for disruption. If you require any further information or are concerned about potential shortages, please contact us.

Meet the team…
