An industrial resin floor is an excellent choice for many types of premises, offering superior durability, impact resistance, and ease of cleaning, without compromising on appearance. Choosing the right flooring solution for your business, however, can be challenging, as several factors will affect your decision.

While budget is a key consideration, it’s vital to take into account which flooring system is most suited to your industry, whether you have any unique requirements, and the condition of your existing floor, so you can choose the solution that offers the best cost-effectiveness, longevity, and safety.

Which Resin Floor System Is Best Suited to Your Industry?

Firstly, when considering which resin flooring system is most suited to your business, you should think about the environment in which it will be laid. Resin floors are incredibly adaptable and therefore are used widely in diverse locations, but how the working space is used should influence your decision. Sterile environments, for example, need to be easy to clean, so the floor must be resistant to disinfectants, while production facilities that handle acids benefit from surface coatings that are undamaged by splashes or spillages.

Industry-specific guidelines may affect your choice of resin floor, particularly if a recommended floor type enables you to discharge your health and safety responsibilities thoroughly. Also, consider the type and volume of traffic that the floor will be subjected to. In warehouses, for instance, vehicles such as forklifts will expose the surface to constant heavy wear, so a resin floor will provide the robust, durable surface necessary.

What are Your Unique Requirements?

While resin flooring systems tend to offer the same benefits wherever they are laid, many businesses have specific requirements that must be considered when choosing the surface. Slip resistant coatings are necessary in environments that are likely to become wet, to protect the safety of employees and visitors from slips. Systems that resist heavy traffic in warehouses can provide longevity, while different surface finishes help resist damage from impacts and abrasion, and the accumulation of mould or moisture.

What is the Condition of Your Existing Floor?

Resin floors can be applied to a variety of floor substrates, including stone, poured concrete, and wood, but it’s important to ensure the substrate is in prime condition to support a consistent resin layer once applied. Epoxy resin won’t bond well to some materials and weak or damaged sections could prevent the resin from bonding in the long-term.

It’s important to thoroughly prepare the substrate and this will depend partly on the planned usage of the space and the system being applied. Heavy footfall, trolley, or vehicle traffic, such as in a warehouse, requires adequate surface preparation to ensure the resin floor remains bonded to the concrete.
