Rigid Protection

SkudoBoard is a heavy duty, synthetic, rigid board that provides superior protection under forklift and general construction traffic. Use wherever you would protect your surfaces with Masonite or plywood. Ideal for use under work stations – pipe cutting, finish carpentry, painting.

The textured surface of SkudoBoard is fire retardant, water resistant and resists curling and warping – reducing safety hazards on your jobsite.
