1) They Have Lower Maintenance Costs
Sooner or later, all concrete floors start to show signs of damage through impact, damp, weathering, or changes in temperature. When your floor chips or cracks, you’ll need to get it repaired quickly in order to avoid a safety hazard and prevent the damage worsening. This can be very costly; on top of paying for the maintenance itself, you might find that your business grinds to a halt while the floor is being fixed. There can be an enormous impact on cashflow for busy manufacturers, warehouses, and food and drink producers.
By contrast, resin flooring has far less risk of abrasion, chemical and impact damage. It maintains its performance characteristics longer throughout its life cycle. That means that, over time, you’ll spend far less on maintenance.
2) They’re Easier To Clean
Cleanliness is important in any business – particularly health and hygiene products, and food storage and processing facilities. If spills are an issue, it makes sense to go with resin flooring.
Resin flooring is highly resistant to spillages. Substances such as oil and acid, as well as the regular grease and dirt of daily life, will not damage the floor. It’s also swift and easy to clean up – and won’t be damaged by detergents or by jet washing.
3) They Allow For Branding and Decoration
Resin floors are more straightforward to decorate than concrete, and also give you more options for colours and designs. The design can be incorporated into the resin itself, so it will remain vibrant for longer, and therefore there will be less need for touch-ups.
This opens up a lot of opportunities: consider a branded floor for a retail unit, for example, or directional instructions, safety warnings, loading areas, and walkways in warehouses, factories, or car parks. Almost any kind of premises can benefit from this.
4) They Are Smooth and Level
A concrete floor might be slightly uneven, due to the nature of poured concrete, even with careful floor levelling before installation. This can cause problems for people walking on it, as well as trolleys, machinery, vehicles and furniture.
The uniform smoothness of the resin flooring can make it far safer.
5) They Can Be Adapted For Special Requirements
Resin flooring is easily adapted to fit your circumstances. When the resin is initially mixed, it can be given slip resistant properties, or static control. This makes the surface far safer than untreated resin – which is smooth, and ensures it is fit for purpose, even in specialist environments.
