We all know that the floors in industrial and commercial facilities can take a beating, but how often do we think about the walls in the same way? Of course, floors are by their nature going to be exposed to more abrasion and foot and vehicle traffic, but accidental contact with walls is surprisingly common and can take its toll over time. Epoxy and urethane wall coatings increase the surface’s strength and ultimately extend its lifespan.
Tennant Wall DF (Decorative Flake), is a four layer, UV-resistant wall system. Colored vinyl flake chips are broadcast onto the wall. This system is both beautiful and durable and has a satin finish.
Tennant Wall Glaze is a four layer, solid color wall system. This cost effective, UV-resistant system is available in a wide variety of color options and in either a gloss or satin finish.
Tennant Wall Reinforced is a four layer solid color wall system, with an imbedded fiberglass mat. This system provides additional durability and reinforcement and has a satin finish.
Tennant Wall TQ (Troweled Quartz), is a seven layer wall system. Colored quartz aggregate is mixed with an epoxy and troweled onto the wall. This creates a thick, durable and beautiful system, available in either a gloss or satin finish.
For a wall with nothing more than latex paint acting as a barrier between it and the outside world, even minor accidental bumps and scrapes can cause unsightly, noticeable scratches and dents. Cracks caused by even minor impacts are noticeable on a smooth concrete surface, and can harbor water, bacteria, and other pathogens, posing a potential health risk.
Our wall coatings use a UV-resistant epoxy system that strengthens and protects the underlying surface. In addition to guarding against accidental or common damage through physical force, the coating system can also improve the surface’s chemical resistance and ability to withstand other harsh conditions. For areas where extra strength is required, fiberglass mesh can be installed as an added layer of protection.
One of the greatest benefits of installing a resinous wall coating is that it creates a smooth, virtually seamless surface that is as easy to clean as it is durable. Unfinished walls are rarely an optimal solution, as they:
When a wall has been sealed with an epoxy coating, the surface is no longer porous and absorbent, so spilled or splattered substances won’t immediately leech into and stain the concrete. Stronger cleaning agents and liberal amounts of water can also be used without fear of causing damage to the wall, as the wall coating has formed a protective layer.
To make deep cleaning as simple as a high-pressure hose down, consider installing coved floors that connect an epoxy flooring system to a wall coating in a way that is virtually seamless. A slight incline towards a drain set directly in the floor can be the finishing touch for a setting that is easy to clean. This option is especially popular for animal shelters, prisons, locker rooms, and other settings that must be regularly and thoroughly cleaned.
