Finding the best solution for your industrial space can be a tricky decision. You’ll be looking at factors like the cost and how long it takes for it to be installed. Epoxy resin flooring can be the perfect solution due to its levels of safety, durability, and lifespan amongst other benefits.
Firstly, to help figure out which flooring is right for your industrial space, you’ll want to think about the following questions:
- Do you need your floor to withstand very heavy vehicles?
- Will there be a lot of foot traffic in the area?
- Does the floor need to be subject to extreme temperatures?
- Will your floor need to be moisture, chemical and/or slip resistant?
- Does your floor need to meet certain regulations for your industry?
If you answered yes to a few of these questions, it’s likely that you’ll need epoxy resin flooring.
Unfortunately, as a means of cutting spends, many businesses choose a flooring solution which doesn’t hold all the qualities they need. Because of this, hazards can be more likely to arise, and calling in maintenance is more often needed. Repairs to damage can be costly, and could even result in needing an entire new flooring… again! This causes extra downtime in the business – all which could be avoided if you get it right the first time.
Epoxy resin flooring is used across a variety of industries including; food manufacturing, restaurant kitchens and other hospitality, warehouses and distribution centres, hospitals and pharmaceuticals, and retail. These all look for the special properties epoxy resin flooring has.
Stain & Scratch Resistance
This quality means that epoxy resin flooring is incredibly easy to maintain and clean. Your business should be able to meet the hygiene standards after just a quick once-over – and will look the part too!
Having a stain resistant flooring solution will save on money you might spend on getting stains and marks sorted. It is also scratch resistant too, so the floors will look faultless.
Epoxy resin flooring is a lot stronger than most other flooring options out there, even being stronger than concrete. Their lifespan is also longer due to this property.
A heavy-duty standard epoxy resin flooring can provide the all-important strength a high traffic area needs. It can withstand large vehicles and machinery moving and remaining sedentary on it.
Concrete floors can’t always handle this as with enough pressure, the floor can buckle or crack, becoming damaged. Costly and timely repairs may be needed.
Epoxy resin flooring is non-porous, meaning that any liquid and moisture cannot penetrate it. Therefore, it is completely waterproof.
With concrete, industrial spaces struggle with moisture seeping up from the ground beneath it. Delamination and blisters can appear on its surface, due to concrete being porous.
Fast curing epoxies can be used to reduce the overall downtime within a business. Within 24 hours the flooring will be cured and ready for action once more.
