Commercial Epoxy Flooring

Your floor is a vital component of your operation, whether you own a retail establishment or manufacturing plant. It must withstand daily traffic, carts, and equipment usage without degrading or becoming damaged. While there are quick-fix options for damaged concrete floors such as repairs or coverings such as stain sealers or carpet overlays; long-term durability and appearance is best achieved using commercial epoxy floor coatings.

Durability: Epoxy flooring offers outstanding durability against impact, vibration, moisture, high temperatures and chemicals. Furthermore, its surface can withstand abrasions and heavy loads – perfect for warehouses or other industrial spaces that see high traffic or machinery use. When installed in your business space, epoxy will stand up well under any number of scenarios and pressure points.

Slip Resistance: Epoxy resin used to form your commercial floor coating is non-porous and easy to maintain, naturally offering slip-resistance which can be enhanced further with vinyl flake or mild aggregate additives – meaning both employees and visitors will remain safe at your business.

Maintenance-Friendly Floors: Epoxy floors require minimal upkeep, just occasional sweeping or mopping to keep them looking their best. As these resilient surfaces will last years longer without needing repairs or replacement, your budget won’t have to go towards repairs and replacement as frequently.

Aesthetics: Commercial epoxy flooring can be highly appealing to customers and workers alike, reflecting existing lighting to brighten up the work area and draw in natural light from nearby windows or doorways – something particularly beneficial in areas such as storage rooms and garages where natural light may not reach all parts.

Experienced Installation

A quality commercial epoxy floor installation should only be carried out by experienced flooring contractors. They can evaluate the space to identify the optimal type of flooring solution based on factors like traffic levels and chemical/heat exposure; their expertise ensures optimal results in your commercial space while protecting your investment.

Step one in installing an epoxy floor involves prepping the surface to receive its coating. Concrete surfaces must first be leveled and any cracks repaired to create an ideal foundation for adhesion of an epoxy coat and uniform appearance. After this has been accomplished, additional steps include roughening up or etching off sections to improve bonding capabilities and create more uniform appearances.

Once the primer is dry, the body coat layer of epoxy is then applied. Depending on your system, color flakes or other decorative elements may be broadcast into the wet body coat to add texture and visual interest. Finally, a clear top coat sealer may be added for extra shine and protection.

Once the final inspection and curing process have been completed, your commercial epoxy floor is ready for daily use. Be sure to swab or vacuum regularly as well as periodically broom it to keep dirt or debris at bay and to reseal or recoat at appropriate intervals in order to preserve its durability.
