What is Surface Protective Film?
Need a short term, temporary surface protection product? Surface protection film might be the right product for your job. Plastic protective films provide leak and tear resistant protection from paint spills, heavy foot traffic, scratches, dust and dirt. Plus, they are quick and easy to install.
There is a Film Applicator for that.
Applying and installing your surface protection should be one of the easiest parts of your job. Most products come in compact rolls, and the only tool you really need is a utility knife. As easy as it is, it can still be time consuming, especially on large jobsites with seemingly endless surfaces. As we all know, time is money on a jobsite. The more time you spend protecting your surfaces, the less time you have on your project.
Carpet Shield is an easy to use product. Although installation can be done by hand, with the use of Surface Shields’ Multi Surface Film Applicator, your installation time can be drastically cut.

The smaller applicator fits 24”, 30” and 36” rolls, while the larger option can fit rolls ranging from sizes 36”, 42” 48” and 60”.
