The Skudo System was originally developed in Australia to fill the need for a high quality, temporary coating system to protect finished surfaces from damages and stains during construction and remodel. Brendon Smith brought this innovative and unique technology to the United States in 2010 and this early Skudo System was recognized by the Construction industry at the 2011 World of Concrete expo as a Most Innovative Product. While establishing distributor relationships and selling direct to contractors around the US, Smith spent the next year testing, modifying and improving Skudo’s design and application methods.
By working hand in hand with North American construction professionals, Skudo products have evolved to address their unique needs. In 2013, Smith relocated the business to Dallas, TX, greatly expanding its manufacturing and distribution capacity and to be more centrally located for efficient order fulfillment. Skudo has sales offices in California, Georgia, Florida, New York, and Tennessee, as well as relationships with stocking distributors across the US, Canada and Hawaii. In addition, Skudo is proud to be a member of leading industry groups such as ACI, NTMA, ABC, AIA, ASCC, CPC, and DCC.

Protect it right.
If you work in the construction industry, you are familiar with numerous contractors and tradespeople attempting to complete their work within increasingly short time frames, leading to:
- Damage – Surfaces such as Concrete, Terrazzo, Marble, Stone, Hardwood, Tile, Metal, and Glass are constantly exposed to machinery, foot traffic and construction materials that can chip, dent, scratch or stain the surface.
- Accidents – Injuries (i.e. slip and falls) occur from contractors and workers having to navigate over inadequate temporary coverings such as paper, cardboard, plastic sheeting and plywood.
Skudo offers products that provide solutions to common work site problems, such as damage to finished surfaces and trip and fall hazards that occur during the construction process. These issues cost you time and money.
- Protection of Surfaces: All Skudo products form a barrier over the surface and protect it from the varied construction site related damages and spills, reducing or eliminating the time and cost of repairs to the surface during the punch list process.
- Protection of Workers: Skudo products provide slip-resistant, stationary and seamless surfaces, creating a safer environment for all who step foot onto your site.
