Creak-free flooring from West Fraser

West Fraser‘s CaberFloor P5 is a high-performance particleboard which is widely specified by developers, architects and self-builders due to its stability, durability and ease of installation. The high-density panels come in thicknesses of 18 or 22mm, in both square-edged or tongue and grooved profiles; the latter features profiles on all four sides to offer maximum flexibility. The precision-engineered edges ensure smooth and speedy installation, while the tight-fitting joints eliminate creaking.

Choosing T&G CaberFloor P5 removes the need for intermediate noggins, while ‘secret’ or hidden nailing or screws can be employed within the joints. Alternatively, CaberFix Joint&Joist adhesive can be applied to the edges, further countering the risk of squeaks and creaks that blight traditional floorboards and many ply or particleboard decks. CaberFix D4 is also ideal for bonding flooring boards to both joists and tongue and groove joints and for sealing the board edges.

Available in lengths of 2400mm and 600mm wide, the floor panels, which are net carbon negative, are both FSC® (C012533) and CE-certified and are ideal for humid environments, in residential as well as new-build or retrofit applications.
