Choosing the Right Industrial Flooring
Epoxide and polyurethane floors are convenient for revitalization of older and damaged floors and also for a surface layer of new floor constructions. The adhesive material is based on epoxide while the filler is a mineral mix of different origin and type.
The choosing of industrial flooring should be left to experts while at the same time respecting the basic wishes of designers or investors. The calculations about the load and purpose of the space should be made. It is important to know that the floor, as well as floor construction, depending on its purpose, have to satisfy several conditions:
- Solidity and endurance
- Resistance to wear, impacts and rolling of metal wheels
- Resistance to mobile forklift truck, all kinds of vehicles and tank trucks, as well as to continual and concentrated static loading
- Resistance to special factors demanded by the investor (different chemical agents, resistance to oil, machine oil, salt and detergents, extreme temperature changes, freezing, special production and dilatation, etc.)
- Resistance to electrostatic charge
- Resistance to dust
It is also important to know certain details depending on the fact whether you are laying a new floor or repairing the old one.
Laying of new industrial floors
from the beginning it is important to pay attention to the procedure for installing of intended floor. The project for flooring is made on the basis of the object itself. When the new flooring is installing you should not save money on consultations because it very important to know everything before the installing itself, from the material to the construction men.
Repairing of old industrial floors
due to the wear or change of production in the object, the construction men should approach under certain circumstances to the system which corresponds to the given quality and quantity criteria. Often, the repairing itself can cost more than installing of new flooring. To minimize the expenses, protect the investor and reach the desired quality, it is important to pay attention to the old flooring.
Of course, it is also advisable to make a pilot project and after thorough discussion between the designer and constructor make one project which will be the foundation of the quality construction. Epoxide and polyurethane floors are convenient for revitalization of older and damaged floors and also for a surface layer of new floor constructions. The adhesive material is based on epoxide while the filler is a mineral mix of different origin and type. The thickness of the layer depends on the level of damage on the floor. Epoxide coats and castings give extra resistance to pressure, wear and chemicals, they are waterproof and they are easily maintained.
The coloured flooring, which is easily cleaned, is applied in warehouses, shops, shopping malls, entertainment centres, where the load is big. Nevertheless, the appearance of the industrial flooring is different even when it comes to the same type of flooring. Quality materials and experience in installing of industrial flooring play a major role.
