Havco Wood Products introduces a new water-resistant treatment for the top surface of hardwood floors in dry freight van trailers.

Floor Shield by Havco is designed to provide exceptional moisture protection and fast drying times with environmentally preferred properties, the company says. Floor Shield is available on new Havco oak laminated floors and Fusion Floor floors shipped to your preferred OEM as well as through various aftermarket trailer parts suppliers.

“Floor Shield is a revolutionary product in this industry,” says Bruce Bader, president and CEO of Havco. “Application for trailers already in service is quick and easy, it’s virtually odorless and there’s practically no downtime because it dries so fast. If a fleet is ordering new trailers, Havco can also apply Floor Shield as an option to the floor kits prior to delivery to the OEM’s assembly plant.”

Specifically designed to for use in dry freight van trailers, Havco says its new prodcuts dry track-free in approximately 30 minutes, and dries to a golden oak tint that clearly shows the floor has been treated evenly.

“At Havco, we are passionate about what we do and dedicated to helping our customers get the longest life possible out of our 100 percent oak trailer and container floors,” says Bader. “Floor Shield is an environmentally friendly and superior topcoat product for fleet owners looking to protect their floors and extend the life of their van trailers. Floor Shield addresses several issues that OEMs, trailer dealers and fleets have when using solvent-based treatments.”
