Durable and Reliable Factory Flooring
From aesthetics to practicality, there are several factors that must be taken into consideration when choosing flooring for your business. With industrial settings such as manufacturing facilities, warehouses and factories, your flooring needs to be able to experience heavy amounts of wear and tear, harsh, corrosive chemicals and heavy machinery.
We are committed to providing you with the highest quality concrete and resin flooring in the industry.
Your Ideal Factory Floor
If there is any requirement for factory flooring, it is that it needs to be durable. Both polished concrete and epoxy resin flooring are capable of withstanding significant pressure and have impenetrable tolerance for the daily demands of a factory.
Since polished concrete and epoxy coatings have their own merits, determining which is the best option for your factory space depends on a comprehensive understanding of both materials. The decision will come down to a few factors such as the type of factory, longevity, aesthetics and costs.
Epoxy Resin Factory Flooring
Otherwise known as resinous flooring, epoxy resin flooring is immensely durable and sustainable alongside decorative and customisable. Epoxy resin flooring is made up of a two-part epoxy system consisting of polymer resins and hardeners. When mixed correctly, epoxy resin will react to the hardener and create a chemical bond with each other and the floor. This chemical bond subsequently creates a stiff plastic that is extremely durable and bonds exceptionally well with its substrate.
In addition to the practical durability of epoxy resin, it also holds a range of aesthetic opportunities. Epoxy resin can be applied in a variety of customisable colour options, textures and gloss levels. Since epoxy is a seamless flooring solution, it is also easy to clean and the substrate is protected from liquids, dirt and chemicals.
The Benefits of Epoxy Resin
- Hygienic, sanitary and easy to clean
- Seamless, eliminates cracks and crevices
- Moisture tolerant options
- High chemical and abrasion-resistant
- Skid and slip-resistant
Polished Concrete Factory Flooring
Polished concrete is a mechanical grind and polish process that combines industrial diamonds and permeating densifiers to level, polish and seal the floor within the interior of the concrete surface. There is a range of nontoxic sealants and densifiers that can be used with polished concrete, making the application more environmentally friendly without compromising on its beautiful sealed finish.
Polished concrete flooring is highly resistant to scratches and chipping, making it an extremely durable option for any factory. With the ease of only needing a daily sweep, polished concrete is much easier to clean than regular concrete flooring.
Alongside the durability and low-maintenance needs of a polished concrete floor, it is also a great way to exercise creativity with its colour stain options and gloss levels. One of the largest selling points from an aesthetic point of view is the ability to polish concrete flooring down to its original aggregate, creating a beautiful natural pattern.
The Benefits of Polished Concrete
- Harder and stronger than other floors
- Lower initial costs compared to other floor coverings
- Dense surface helps protect against absorption of oil and contaminants
- More abrasion resistant than unfinished concrete
- No hydrostatic or vapour pressure issues
- One-time application with minimal maintenance
The Best Material for Factory Flooring
Regardless of what your factory is used for, your flooring must be able to withstand heavy footfall traffic as well as heavy machinery. Both polished concrete flooring and epoxy resin hold a number of benefits when it comes to durability, cleanliness and the added bonus of customisation.
Choosing the correct floor for your space can increase safety, reduce maintenance, protect equipment and provide the long-term durability necessary for ensuring that your facility is well-equipped in the long run.
