Correctional facilities have a responsibility to encourage safe behavior throughout the prison compounds. This can be especially critical in group settings, such as prison dining rooms, mess halls and cafeterias, where inmate confrontations can be more frequent.
In these areas, many standard institutional floor coverings with seams, head welds or grout lines are at risk for vandalism and can potentially be used to create improvised weapons, severely compromising safety.
Florock’s prison dining hall floor finishes provide the solution for exceptional, unmatched floor security.
Our flooring bonds directly to concrete slabs, creating a seamless, unyielding surface free of grout lines or tile edges, effectively discouraging any manipulation or vandalism to the flooring from inmates. Florock’s slip-resistant properties are also vital in dining areas, as spilled liquids or residue from dropped food can lead to injury.

With thousands of square feet of floor space, correctional facilities can be very costly to clean and maintain over time. Florock’s epoxy flooring for prison dining halls does not require stripping and waxing or special cleaners, unlike various tile, terrazzo or polished concrete finishes. Correctional institutions can eliminate the use of dangerous stripping chemicals, the cost of specially-training custodial staff, and reliance on outside floor maintenance services with Florock’s correctional finishes. Epoxy coatings only require a regular sweeping or vacuuming and the occasional use of a standard soft brush riding scrubber does the trick for these durable chemical and stain-resistant floors.
Our flooring for correctional facilities, including those for prison institutional kitchens, walk-in freezer and coolers and correctional kitchen floor-to-ceiling systems with heavy-duty resinous wall systems, can make cleanup a breeze.

In prison facilities, sanitation is of the utmost importance, and the flooring here must meet daily cleaning requirements. Florock flooring is available in the options these facilities need. Whether prison dining halls need floor-to-wall cove bases to reduce corners where microbes and moisture can form or slope-to-drain epoxy floor coatings to enable easy wash down, we can provide the solutions needed. Unlike tile, sheeted floor or carpet, Florock’s epoxy flooring designs help eliminate the possibility for harmful mold and bacteria to form underneath the floor base. The floor coating bonds directly to the concrete, greatly reducing the likelihood of any harmful substances growing. For additional protections, we offer moisture tolerant and moisture vapor transmission mitigating options, as well as Floroseptic antimicrobial and waterproofing protections.
