Industrial flooring is an extremely hi-tech and highly competitive market, but there is so much development in this sector that many systems have moved beyond the realm of "industrial" flooring and entered the design arena.
Apart from the obvious essential applications in factories and warehousing, in the food and beverage industry, exhibition areas, sports centres and many more, recent innovations have created a demand for the more aesthetic, coloured and custom-designed floors required by entertainment areas, showrooms, boutiques and other retail applications - that can all be met by this sector.
Heavy duty epoxy screeds are often used in factories where floors are subject to high impact, wear, abrasion and chemical attack. These floors have very good mechanical strength, and epoxy and polymer screeds on concrete floors provide a seamless floor with heavy duty wear characteristics and the ability to perform in areas with forklift and heavy truck traffic. The self-levelling varieties are commonly used in kitchens, dining rooms, storage areas and in car workshops, because they protect the concrete from wear, chemical corrosion and chemical deterioration, combined with ease of cleaning and low maintenance. With no cracks or angled corners, these floorcoverings provide the ultimate in hygienic flooring. Mostly, these floors are anti-slip, fire-resistant, anti-bacterial, and can be provided with dust-repelling treatments and antistatic properties - making them ideally suitable for use in laboratories, hospitals or any-where that sensitive electronic equipment is being used, or where a static-free environment is imperative. Apart from producing a clean working environment and a non-slip surface, these floors increase the light reflectivity and brighten the work area, which saves electricity and enables work efficiencies to be maximised.
These floors often need to be resistant to oils and grease, non-skid and slip-resistant and are regularly called upon to solve specific problems such as those found in wet and cold room applications. This means that many other types of flooring material can fall under the industrial banner, depending on the application.
