Coving

 Epoxy and Polyurethane coved skirting

In many industries, in particular the food sector, pharmaceutical and health care, the ability to carry out a deep clean is of paramount importance.  A ninety degree angle at the wall to floor junction is not only very difficult to keep clean, but is also a very good breeding ground for bacteria’s. Producing a smooth transition from floor to wall, the installation of an epoxy or polyurethane coved skirting facilitates  ease of cleaning of the wall and floor surfaces and eliminates that ninety degree junction dirt trap.

Regardless of the type of wall that you have, be it food grade white wall panels, 3mm thick whiteroc sheeting, or plastered or rendered finishes, Impact flooring can install a coved skirting which is permanently fixed. We will attach  a stainless steel ‘birds beak’ trim to the wall, and then an epoxy or polyurethane render is formed, by trowel, to provide the smooth transition required. Depending on requirements, any type of chemical resistant coating can be added to ensure a completely sealed system.

Coved skirting with kerbs

Some of the areas that require a coved skirting, especially the food sector, are subject to fork lift and pallet truck traffic, and the addition of a concrete kerb is often considered to protect the base of the wall. Impact flooring specialise in concrete kerb installation and will then apply the epoxy or polyurethane resin coving systems to go ‘up and over’ the new kerbs. All of our coved skirting systems are compatible with the entire range of resin flooring systems, and can be installed to cover existing kerbs and bund walls, or stand alone onto your existing walls.

Generally speaking, we would first fit a stainless steel ‘birds beak’ trim, with the epoxy or polyurethane coving material applied to finish flush to this, or alternatively the epoxy or polyurethane coving can be tied in to existing  brickwork etc., and is finished flush to the epoxy or polyurethane flooring.

 

Choose a Colour that Suits You

All of the flooring systems that we install are available in a range of standard colours. (See colour chart) However, any RAL or BS colour can be manufactured to order to provide bespoke requirements, for example your corporate colours.
