Restaurant Epoxy Flooring: A Versatile Solution
Epoxy and other resinous floor coatings are fluid-applied directly onto the underlying concrete slab for a tight bond and reliable adhesion, devoid of the air pockets and lifting/bending back of corners that sometimes affect restaurant flooring systems installed in pre-manufactured sheets. In contrast, resinous flooring’s installation creates a level, virtually seamless surface that is easy to clean and maintain. Available in a variety of solid colors, decorative blends and metallic, epoxy flooring for restaurants can be easily tailored to suit an establishment’s aesthetics. Warm, earthy tones create a calm and homey atmosphere, while bright colors and contrasting patterns give a more modern feel, while metallic floor coatings add a sense of luxury. A light to medium grey or a similar solid color in the kitchen makes it easy to see spills, enhancing worker safety and cleanliness.
Because epoxy, urethane, and MMA floor coatings are available in many different systems with various functional elements, they offer the perfect restaurant flooring solution. The different areas of flooring in the restaurant can be coated with different textures, sheens, etc., to match the demands of that area. The kitchen, for example, will likely have ovens, stoves, and maybe even a walk-in refrigerator or freezer. For all these elements, thermal shock resistance is a must. Lesser performing flooring systems can begin to deteriorate over time when exposed to extreme and/or fluctuating temperatures.
Long-Lasting Flooring for Restaurant
As a restaurant owner or operator, purchasing a durable flooring system is one of the most important investments you can make in your business. As a foundational element of the environment that customers interact with and notice, an outdated or deteriorating floor can give the entire business an air of poor quality and subpar cleanliness. With flooring, it is far less expensive to do the job right the first time than to have to tear up and reinstall a new system when the old one wears, disintegrates, or fades. Being able to stretch out the floor covering replacement cycle is certainly preferred, since any time spent on repairs or refurbishment of your restaurant floor is time when your business can’t be running at capacity, potentially resulting in missed opportunities to gain new and loyal customers.
