Clear polythene sheeting is a versatile product used to protect items of all shapes and sizes from dust, dirt and scrapes whilst in storage or transit, or against damage during renovation and redecoration. We stock polythene rolls in a range of widths and gauges enabling you to cut exactly the right amount of plastic sheeting to suit your purpose.
Polythene sheeting on a roll is a useful product for removal and transport companies to keep in their vehicles for the quick and easy wrapping of furniture and household items. Heavy duty polythene sheeting is widely used in many outdoor tasks such as greenhouses and for protection against the elements during building works; we supply our heavy duty polythene sheeting on a roll for ease of use. Rolls over 100 micron, heavy duty and extra heavy duty, are also suitable for heat shrink. See our range of heat shrink guns.
Waterproof and water resistant, our polythene sheeting is centre-folded on a roll for ease of storage. It is manufactured from low density polythene in four grades:
- Light duty polythene (120 gauge, 30 micron)
Ideal for protecting floors when painting and decorating - and for light duty general wrapping for storage and transit. The two metre width is folded in half, so the roll is just one metre wide, but opens out into two metres.
- Medium duty polythene (240 gauge, 60 micron)
Can be used for floor protection during redecoration work or to protect gardens when doing ground works. Also suitable for medium duty general wrapping for storage and transit.
- Heavy duty polythene (480 gauge, 120 micron)
Suitable for heavier duty floor or garden protection, when doing extensive ground or redecoration work. Can also be used for heavy duty wrapping for storage and transit. Suitable for heat shrink.
- Extra heavy duty polythene (1000 gauge, 250 micron)
Often called "builder's polythene". These strong rolls offer exceptional puncture and burst resistance. Suitable for heat shrink.
This product is manufactured from recycled material. Occasionally this can affect the level of clarity of the polythene. Please note: Our rolls of polythene are centre-folded for ease of storage - it simply unfolds it as you unroll it. For example, a 2438mm wide sheet of plastic would be folded in half and come on a 1219mm roll.
Dimensions in the table refer to the full, unfolded width.

Polythene sheeting from Kite Packaging is centre folded on the roll, so opens up to twice the roll height. This demonstration shows how it is unwound.
