The waterproof antistatic membrane cuts easily with scissors or a sharp knife, says the maker, and is sold in 3- and 6-foot rolls, in thicknesses from 10 mil (for 20 cents per square foot) to 40 mil (90 cents per square foot). The company also makes products that protect carpets, walls, and other surfaces. Bainbridge International, 781/821-2600, coverguard.com.
