Loading Dock Flooring

Loading dock floors must be able to handle the stress of heavily loaded forklift and hand truck traffic for prolonged periods of time, not to mention the occasional dragged or dropped pallets and boxes.  Depending upon materials being handled, a variety of corrosive liquid or abrasive powdered substances may end up getting spilled.  Uncoated concrete is not designed to withstand this type of daily abuse.  Knowledgeably selected loading dock epoxy flooring systems can repair damaged concrete surfaces and protect facility floors from future deterioration.

Save costs with floor coatings that prevent cracks for a long time

Loading Dock Flooring Challenges

The ongoing traffic and pallets being dragged across loading docks and staging areas can create havoc on concrete floor surfaces. Depending upon the condition and original concrete mix of the slab, over time, the floor will typically become either severely pock-marked or will “smoothen down” into a slippery surface.  In either case, slip-trip-and-fall events become inevitable.

Florock’s selection of hard working, aggregate-filled floor resurfacers and toppings are the answer to this all too common problem. Not just any floor paint can stand up to the rigor of these highly trafficked zones in factory warehouses. However, our epoxy loading dock floor systems furnish engineered protection. Our loading dock flooring is available in heavy-duty, durably slip-resistant models—all while remaining affordable.

Equipment Maintenance Savings with Epoxy Coatings

Uneven floors, cracks and potholes in factory warehouses can inflict serious damage on material handling equipment’s suspension systems and wheels.  The repair bills can run into the thousands and the slowdowns create unnecessary aggravation.  Epoxy loading dock flooring repair or resurfacing can save on warehouse equipment maintenance costs, keep the flow of goods on schedule and keep customers happy.
