Do you run a busy warehouse with forklifts and heavy equipment driving up and down all day long? If your warehouse has bare unsealed concrete, heavy equipment is likely to damage concrete and concrete joints over time, leading to damage to your equipment, inventory, and staff.
Installing appropriate flooring inside your warehouse, can not only rectify existing floor damage and prevent any future ones.
Epoxy flooring and polished concrete are two apparent front runners when it comes to warehouse flooring solutions. For big facilities, such as warehouses, both polished and epoxy flooring are exceptionally durable, environmentally friendly, and cost-effective options. In the end, the choice between epoxy and polished floors is usually dictated by the intended use of the area and the budget available for the project.
Epoxy floor coatings can turn your concrete floor into a non-porous, smooth, stain-resistant surface, that is easy to clean and maintain. Epoxy will improve the durability and longevity of your concrete floors. When applied epoxy acts as a bandage and a protective shield for your concrete floors, protecting them from heavy forklifts, manufacturing equipment, and heavy foot traffic.
Epoxy floor coatings can be applied in a variety of thicknesses from 0.6mm to 10mm, making them ideal for a variety of uses. Created with safety in mind and incorporating anti-slip agents, epoxy floor coatings can improve workers’ safety. Light-colored epoxy floors also have light-reflective properties, which can lower lighting costs.
The use of mechanically polished concrete floors is becoming increasingly popular. While polished concrete floors are suited for a wide range of locations, warehouse owners are increasingly taking advantage of the many advantages of this sustainable and durable flooring solution.
You'll save money in the short and long term by having polished flooring installed because it lasts so long and requires so little upkeep. Because polished warehouse floors create a harder wearing concrete surface without the need for a topcoat, you have a warehouse floor that doesn’t wear away over time. Polished concrete floors are a long-term investment that will pay off in ways you can't fathom.
