Within your workplace, it’s extremely important that the right flooring is implemented, therefore you need to think about what your needs are within your workplace.

Safety is one of the main priorities when it comes to choosing the right flooring for your workplace, and although each flooring type is safe to use, they may not be as suitable for use in certain environments as others.
Ensuring that your flooring is sufficiently protected is something should also be taken into consideration. This will save money in the long run due to not having to repair the flooring, it will keep the floor lasting longer and performing effectively.
We are going to talk about how you can protect your flooring to ensure that you make the most of your flooring system.
Epoxy Resin Flooring
Epoxy resin flooring is one of the most popular flooring options for many industrial environments. This is mainly due to the wide range of benefits such as anti static and anti slip properties, which many industries require in order to be able to operate safely and efficiently.
On top of this, it is extremely durable, leading to a longer life than other flooring, even in high traffic environments. As epoxy resin is resistant to a wide range of chemicals and bacteria this does not wear down the flooring. Resin epoxy is easier to keep clean and maintain, and reduces the chance of bacteria that often collect and grow in the grout of flooring and tiling.
If you already have an existing concrete floor that needs some repairs or re-levelling then floor screeding is a great option. Floor screeds are essential for many industrial floors, which have become unlevelled through constant use and damage.
Floor screeding can usually be completed within a 12-24 hour period- much faster than other alternatives, meaning less downtime, or even no downtime as we work on weekends to work around your schedule. Floor screed is self smoothing, fast drying and dimensionally steady, meaning you don’t need to worry when it comes to protecting and upgrading your concrete floor.
There are many different ways in which you can protect your industrial flooring, which we strongly advise to ensure that you are making the most of your flooring investment. It’s more cost effective to implement prevention, rather than paying for the consequences of not protecting your flooring.
