If you’re researching different industrial flooring options for your facility, consider the benefits of choosing industrial epoxy flooring. Epoxy floor coatings offer a variety of benefits, and one of their most prominent features is their ability to save facility managers money. These flooring solutions are highly durable, offering long-term savings over their life spans that can far outweigh any initial investments.

If you’re looking for a way to trim the fat from your budget, choosing epoxy floor coatings from Florock is an ideal way to do so.

Minimized Downtime

When epoxy flooring systems are installed, there are a variety of quick curing options to choose from. Faster curing floor coatings help minimize downtime, reducing or eliminating potential inconvenience to employees and visitors while the floor is being renovated or installed. And low odor formulations are available, allowing daily operations to continue, while new resinous flooring is being laid. Less disruption to business-as-usual means better results for the company’s bottom line.

Less Frequent Replacement

A large number of commercial flooring alternatives have to be replaced somewhat frequently due to wear-and-tear. For instance, carpeting in busy facilities typically gets scheduled for removal every two years. On the other hand, epoxy floor coatings, depending upon system and site conditions, typically last much longer, requiring far less frequent replacement than many other flooring types. Fewer replacement cycles means less interruption of operations and daily business activities. Being able to confidently stretch out the intervals between replacement flooring budget outlay, combined with greatly reduced hauling and construction waste disposal fees, further contribute to the facility budget savings.

Reduced Maintenance Costs

Industrial epoxy flooring, even in high traffic retail, manufacturing or educational settings, is extremely easy and inexpensive to maintain. It requires no special cleaning chemicals or machines, so keeping the floors in top condition isn’t a difficult or complicated process. And with such superb no-wax finishes, you won’t have to hire special crews chemically strip, wax, buff and polish the floors — just another way resinous floors help facility managers save money.

Supports Slip & Fall Avoidance Protocols

Because industrial epoxy flooring and other commercial resinous traffic surfaces are so uniquely customizable, when selecting these types of floors, managers have the ability to specify greater levels of slip resistance in areas where they need it most. As part of an overall safety program, improved skid-resistance can result in a lower risk of slip, trip and fall events and help safeguard personnel, overall productivity and the facility budget. By supporting Slip and Fall Avoidance protocols, well-selected epoxy floors can assist in minimizing the incidents of personal injury litigation and workers’ compensation payouts, thereby adding to their cost saving benefits.

These are just a few of the points to consider when researching industrial epoxy flooring and other fluid-applied floor coating options for your facility. To learn more about epoxy floor coatings from Florock, contact us today.
