Have you ever wondered what makes up the floor we walk on every day? In our own homes, the offices, or even in the shopping malls, floors tend to be overlooked. However, there is more than meets the eye in a functional flooring system.
If you want the very best adhesion and endurance of your flooring in the years to come, then you must consider the use of a proper flooring system. Generally, a good flooring system consists of three layers of coating, namely primer coat, intermediate coat and finish coat.
Preparation of the floor using a floor primer is vital for not only saving your time and effort, but money as well. Primer is the first layer that is applied on the substrate or base material which enhances the bonding of the intermediate coat onto the substrate. Next, the intermediate layer acts to build up the thickness to the flooring. Lastly, the finish coat provides not only the aesthetic value but also the protection against external environments like abrasion, the Ultraviolet (UV) sunlight and moisture.
A durable flooring system is extremely important for industrial property to ensure the business owners’ operation carried on smoothly every day. Without adequate attention given to achieving a quality-grade flooring system, many may end up having to spend more on maintenance.
Besides maintenance issues, looking into the safety aspect is also another reason why installing a quality-grade flooring system is essential as the working condition in an industrial setting poses various risks.
The investment in a high-quality flooring system is actually essential in prolonging its shelf life, ensuring a safe working environment. Hence, saving you money and time in the long run without impacting the business operation where time is of the essence.
Choose the right industrial flooring system for your facility
This is especially pertinent for industrial flooring, where a durable flooring system is literally the foundation for a safe, productive and efficient work environment, considering not only the foot traffic but also the pressure of heavy machinery on a daily basis.
Ideally, floor replacements should be avoided as it will lead to down time in production. Hence, industrial flooring should be expected to hold up at least a decade even under extreme usage.
Depending on what the industrial building is used for, there are different requirements in the flooring system for different sectors. For example, warehouses require strong and durable floor coatings to withstand the impacts from forklifts while food-safe floor coatings are needed in food processing plants.
