Benefits of Epoxy for Warehouse Floors

February 22, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 211

There is no need for warehouses to have stunning decor, but they must be organized, clean and professional-looking. Excellent warehouse flooring is a requirement.

Floor evenness must be considered in a warehouse since traffic inside is typically busy. Creating a more optimal flow of movement is greatly facilitated by having a strong floor profile. There is the possibility of damaged equipment if the floors are rough or have many holes in them, even if the holes are extremely small.

Epoxy flooring is highly recommended for warehouse floors. What are the specific reasons to choose epoxy flooring?

Epoxy Flooring Can Be InstalledDoing a floor correctly can take anywhere from 1-5 days depending on the size of floor, surface prep required, materials used, etc. Fast dry epoxies are available but the surface prep still needs to be completed.

If there is concern about downtime, floors can be done in segments, although the cost increases.

Floors can also be done over weekends, holidays, nights, etc., but there is still surface prep and dry times that must be followed for longevity of the floor.

With Epoxy Floors Clean-up is Very SimpleWhen regular floors become dirty, there is wasted time getting them cleaned up. Dirty floors present an unattractive appearance creating a negative impression, but this does not happen with floors made from epoxy. A non-porous surface is a characteristic of epoxy floors, which allows liquids to be blocked and prevents absorption. A spilled liquid on an epoxy floor will bead making it easy to clean. You will be able to save both time due to the easy clean up and you can save money from buying fewer cleaning products.

Resistance to Chemicals is a Property of Epoxy Flooring.Epoxy is only somewhat chemical resistant, but not completely unaffected. Harsh chemicals, i.e. Formaldehyde, will affect a standard epoxy.

Chemical substances are on the premises in most warehouses and industrial factories. These chemicals can spill onto the floor during the course of business operations and cause damage. Dents and pockmarks are often the effects caused by using some chemicals that contain acids and abrasives. It is likely that this will affect the floor profile and smoothness.

Durability of Epoxy Floors It is important to tell your deck coatings contractor what type of equipment, and its weight, will be used in the facility so that the floor can be done to handle this traffic.

Floors made from epoxy can last for many years, but a simple epoxy floor will not handle heavy equipment traffic. This is very important.

The floor can become scuffed and scraped when these vehicles are in use, and there is also the risk of additional stress to the floor. It can be a considerable challenge to make the perfect flooring inside your business warehouse.

There are many issues to consider when installing a new flooring system, including how your warehouse will look and operate and be maintained. Just as in any type of business decision, turn your epoxy flooring installation over to the professionals and get it done right the first time.
