Industrial and Manufacturing Flooring Systems

Flooring for Production Plants

Few facility floors take as much constant punishment as those in a manufacturing plant. Often during three shifts, running ‘round the clock, these floors are typically subjected to:

  • The abrasion from high pedestrian and vehicular traffic

  • Chemicals, solvents, acids, oils, fuels and various other liquids being spilled or leaked by personnel or equipment

  • Heavy equipment, often vibrating endlessly on the concrete substrate

  • Outside elements due to inclement weather - such as rain, snow, dirt and sand - being tracked indoors

These factors can have devastating effects on a concrete substrate, causing cracks, pitting, staining and various other types of deterioration. This deterioration, in turn, can have repercussions of its own, including trips and falls incidents for both employees and visitors, damage to equipment such as forklifts—all of which can result in decreased productivity, possible downtime and costly repairs.

Benefits of Epoxies and Other Resinous Floor Coatings

These have been the popular favorite floor finish for virtually all types of commercial and industrial facilities for a variety of reasons:

  • They are highly durable, which affords them excellent longevity, offering savings on costly repairs and downtime

  • They are highly stress and abrasion resistant and can withstand heavy pedestrian and vehicular traffic, as well as equipment vibration

  • No polishing, waxing or buffing, so they are easy and inexpensive to clean and maintain

  • Can be used to repairing damaged concrete instead of pouring new concrete

Other Advantages

The benefits of having a broad range of colors, styles and finishes are:

  • Light, bright colors with reflective finishes can help lighten an otherwise dark space, thus increasing visibility, helping keep employees safe, and creating an energizing environment

  • Specific areas, such as danger zones and walkways, can be labeled or marked off by different colors, providing “pride of place,” as well as safety and protection

  • Designs, using the company colors or even incorporating its logo, can help create an aesthetic space out of one that would otherwise be drab or boring

Building a Resinous Flooring System to Meet Your Needs

One size does not fit all, when it comes to production plants. Different types of facilities have completely different needs and requirements. Epoxies, urethanes, epoxy mortars, urethane mortars and even polyaspartics systems can be created to fix a facilities specific needs. This includes:

  • Varying levels of slip resistance

  • Moisture vapor control when needed

  • Chemical, oil, and fuel resistance in, say, laboratories or automobile plants

  • Seamless flooring that helps inhibits the growth of bacteria or other pathogens in pharmaceutical or food processing plants

  • Resistance to thermal shock wherever there are frequent changes of temperature

  • An ability to flex as the substrate moves for areas of heavy vibration
