Production & Plant Flooring

The goal of production facilities and manufacturing plants is to work continuously at maximum efficiency. A slow down for any reason due to flooring inproduction plants is unacceptable.  Damaged, cracked, slippery or otherwise unsafe concrete flooring is a danger to workers and is a drag on productivity. In contrast, carefully selected production or plant flooring supports overall efficiency and management’s long-term budgetary goals. At Florock, we provide epoxy coatings to ensure just that for factory settings.

Benefits of Epoxy Factory Flooring

Factories need floor coatings that can withstand day-to-day workloads while still being easy to maintain, as well as visually appealing.

At Florock, we produce epoxy coatings for production facilities that:

  • Brighten work spaces
  • Provide a slip-resistant surface for workers
  • Protect structural integrity of concrete slab by preventing absorption of chemicals, acids and caustics
  • Offer impact protection from heavy loads
  • Impart high tolerance for heavy wear and tear
  • Delineate traffic flow, aisle ways and work areas
  • Prevent “concrete dusting,” easing strain on air filtration systems
  • Make floors easier to clean
  • Can reduce the amount of electricity necessary to illuminate an area
  • Make building interiors more attractive for employees and visitors

Selection and Specification of Plant & Manufacturing Flooring

The optimal plant flooring should be specified based on the different activities in various areas within the facility.  Depending upon daily operations, bare or lightly sealed concrete areas can be destroyed after a relatively short period of time.  Carefully selected epoxy floor toppings help keep concrete flooring investments intact.

Local and regional Florock professionals can help evaluate facilities and assist in determining the best floor coatings for each workspace and budget. Company-wide programs for multiple locations can add up to even more savings.

 

Plant Maintenance Epoxy Floor Coatings

Plant and facility maintenance is a fact of life, and managers spend a good deal of their time concerned with the scheduling and costs involved with this. Ideally-selected manufacturing flooring allows for minimal-effort care routines and lower maintenance costs, as well as exceptional durability and long-term performance.

The ability to clean up quickly and easily, avoid the expensive practice of waxing/chemical stripping/re-waxing, and enjoy the enduring, hard-wearing traffic surface over time, is priceless. The result of well-selected and properly installed epoxy floor coatings is less downtime, lower labor costs, and better returns overall.

 

Epoxy Coatings for Used & Abused Floors

It’s important to keep in mind that no other surface takes more abuse than factory, plant or manufacturing floors. Whether by impact, abrasion, chemical attack or thermal shock, industrial floors get used and abused all day long.  In general, uncoated concrete is simply not designed to take this kind of treatment on a continual basis.  The right, appropriately selected epoxy floor toppings are just the opposite—they are specifically engineered to stand up to the abuse that bare concrete simply can’t.

For decision-makers, the conundrum is how to select what’s best for a given facility’s floor. There are many different polymer resin flooring chemistries, as well as installation methods, and they each have their purpose and application—and for very good reason.  It would be impossible for a single type of floor to satisfy the needs of all manufacturers or even all areas within a single production facility.

That’s why Florock furnishes one of the most complete industrial flooring lines for manufacturing, production and power plants, comprised of several different polymers, aggregates and other components.  Our regional technical representatives and local, approved installers are among the most knowledgeable and skilled in the business.
