Factory Flooring Options

Factory flooring is tougher than most, designed to withstand constant heavy machinery and footfall and last for years. The right floor coating will also protect your factory floor from chemical spills and the corrosive effects of harsh chemicals and solvents. factory floors are also subjected to thermal shocks and vibrations which can damage concrete and other floor surfaces, so a durable industrial floor is imperative.

The right flooring can also improve safety and productivity in your factory, making it an asset to the overall performance of the facility. A factory floor that is not only durable and strong enough to withstand heavy machinery and constant footfall but also includes anti-slip properties can reduce the risk of employee injuries while at work. In addition, a floor striping system can help to improve traffic flow and identify dangerous areas so that workers are kept safe at all times.

There are a number of different factory flooring options to consider, depending on the specific requirements of your manufacturing facility. Some of the most popular include concrete flooring, polyureas and epoxy floor coatings. Concrete is one of the strongest materials available and can withstand the heavy loads of equipment and vehicles used in factories. It is also highly affordable and easy to maintain, providing an ideal choice for a busy factory environment.

Epoxy floor coatings are a great option for factory flooring, as they provide an extremely tough surface that can be customised to suit your needs. Our ArmorPoxy II epoxy floor coatings offer superior chemical and abrasion resistance and can be installed in less time than traditional floor paint, meaning that you won’t lose any productivity during the installation process. We can also provide an anti-slip additive to our industrial grade epoxy floor coatings which is particularly helpful in high traffic areas.

Another option for a strong and durable floor coating is a polyurethane, which provides an excellent combination of durability and flexibility. This type of flooring can be textured to create an anti-slip surface which will improve safety and help to prevent accidents while at work. Polyureas are also odorless and have very low VOC levels, making them an environmentally friendly alternative to traditional floor coatings.

Acid proof tiles are also an excellent choice for a factory floor as they can resist the corrosive effects of acids and other harsh chemicals commonly used in industrial settings. This material is also easy to clean and can be easily maintained using a PH-neutral floor detergent, such as Ideal Work’s PERFETTO!
