If you’re planning to install an epoxy resin floor in your factory, warehouse, or workshop, be reassured that you’ve made an intelligent choice. Resin flooring offers significant advantages over other types of surface, boasting superior durability and resistance to wear – particularly important in workplaces with heavy footfall or mechanical traffic, such as forklifts. Furthermore, epoxy resin floors are easy to clean, require little maintenance, and can be installed with customisable options, such as anti-slip properties or UV protective coatings.
In some premises, a thin resin floor seal, or coating, over a concrete base will be sufficient if, for example, it is only exposed to light foot traffic, or light vehicles such as metal trolleys. If constant traffic bearing heavy loads are commonplace, a heavy-duty screed floor would be a more appropriate choice.
2) The Working Environment
The local environment will influence which type of resin floor you should install in your premises. Exposure to UV or chemicals, the likelihood of spillages, the frequency of cleaning, and health and safety requirements (such as the need to meet food production standards) are all important factors to consider.
When choosing an epoxy resin floor, you will probably wish to work within a budget; however, it’s important not to cut corners to save money by foregoing essential performance features. A logical starting point would be to identify which type of flooring your business requires, considering important factors such as traffic, the environment, and the finish, so that you’re don’t end up with an inappropriate product with a limited lifespan. Then, contact the specialists at Central Flooring to discuss your needs, so that a realistic price can be calculated.
With epoxy resin flooring, you can also opt for specific finishes, such as anti-slip features to reduce the chance of accidents, or anti-bacterial properties to inhibit the growth of harmful bacteria. Your decision should, partly, depend on the use of the factory or workshop – for example, are regular spills likely that could pose a hazard to colleagues?
