COMPANY OVERVIEW
Developed in 1999, Ram Board was originally designed to protect floors from the heavy demands of the movie industry. It was used on the sets of feature films such as Armageddon, The Hulk, Spider Man, and Pirates of the Caribbean. Word of Ram Board quickly spread to the construction industry where it was put to the test under the rigorous demands of contractors. Because of Ram Board's Flex-Fiber™ technology, it rapidly became contractor's #1 choice for floor protection. Ram Board is now sold through over 7,500 local lumber stores, national chains and big box retailers worldwide. What began in the studios of Hollywood, now protects construction projects worldwide.
