Whether you need to update your concrete factory floor or need a new floor installed, choosing the right flooring option for your facility is essential for a safe, efficient flooring system.
Top 5 Flooring Qualities for Industrial Concrete Flooring
There are significant qualities you should look for when choosing a flooring solution for your industrial facility:
- Spill-Proof: An industrial floor should be coated with a finish that makes the floor waterproof and spill-proof in case of unexpected accidents.
- Like-New Appearance: Most flooring coatings provide protection but also give your facility floor a shiny appearance.
- Damage Resistant: Your floor should be durable enough to withstand all types of floor damage, such as scratching or breakage.
- Extended Shelf-Life: You should choose a flooring solution that has an extended lifespan. Many flooring systems can last up to an additional 20 years if treated with the right coating.
- Easy Installation: An industrial flooring installation shouldn’t be a hassle. Most flooring systems are easy to install and maintain.
What to Consider for Industrial Flooring Solutions
If you’re a business owner in the industrial market, choosing the best flooring system that meets your business’s manufacturing needs is essential. There are factors to consider, such as high foot traffic and heavy machinery, when looking at options for industrial floors. No matter your flooring choice, durable, high-quality flooring is the result you should aim for.
Types of Flooring
Epoxy flooring systems provide a nonporous, durable flooring solution for your facility. It’s easier to install than carpet and upgrades an existing floor, making it like new again.
Known as one of the most versatile flooring systems, epoxy coating is ideal for a wide variety of businesses, such as hospitals, industrial warehouses and facilities, and aircraft hangars.
Urethane cement acts as a bacterial inhibitor and moisture-resistant flooring system and can be beneficial for a wide range of commercial and industrial facilities.
Also known as polymer cement concrete, urethane cement is created by mixing a polymer binder with standard cement and an aggregate, creating a smooth flooring surface resistant to liquids and bacteria. This solution is ideal flooring for a factory in the food and beverage industry, schools and universities, automotive factories, chemical plants, healthcare facilities, and research labs.
Urethane coating systems are a perfect solution for resisting scratches and abrasions at an affordable price. While this flooring system cannot be applied with the same thickness as cement and epoxy, it still offers a robust level of resistance to high traffic and heavy machinery. The coating solution also has a glossy finish, and it’s non-toxic, making it an ideal choice for a food and beverage manufacturer.
Polished concrete is created by mechanically grounding an existing concrete flooring system and then refining and polishing with a bonded abrasive to achieve a high-gloss finish. Polished concrete has several advantages, such as customizable options, easy maintenance, and slip- resistant coating. It also adds a sleek touch to any facility flooring system.
A concrete-stained floor is a convenient and cost-effective solution to improve the appearance of your flooring. Stained concrete is an affordable way to give your flooring a little decorative flair. The floor coating comes in a wide variety of customization options, such as bold stain colors, stamped overlays, custom inlays, design accents, and graphics.
Quartz and Flake System
The quartz and flake flooring system also provides a durable, slip-resistant flooring solution for your facility. This system comes in an unlimited selection of color combinations to give your facility a unique appearance while still maintaining safety protocol.
The quartz system is created by implementing sand to add texture and grip to the floor’s surface. While quartz floors use silica and sand to add texture, flake systems use small pieces of plastic to emulate this effect.
