As restaurants search for flooring, their No. 1 concern is the cost of maintenance. After all, upkeep is the bottom line for a restaurants’ flooring—they need to have a beautiful, clean and sanitary operation to pass health department inspections and create an overall image of success. Seating area floors should be exceptionally durable and simple to clean on a daily basis.
At Florock, we have a beautiful selection of long-lasting low maintenance floors that meet these needs, and offer many other beneficial features and options:
Every style of cuisine inspires a specific design idea, and operations focusing on unique Asian Fusion, a new twist on the English pub, hot and spicy Latin flavors or the absolute best American burger will look at flooring design differently. At Florock, we create epoxy floor coatings customized to fit the decor of the dining space, as well as any branding initiatives, current design trends, and of course, the restaurant owners’ tastes, to contribute to the success of the establishment. Florock floors fulfill restaurants’ durability, building code and health regulation compliance needs, without putting a damper on floor design and creativity.
Each zone of a restaurant has different flooring requirements. For example, bar area floors need protection against spilled fluids behind the counter, as well as customers spilling or even dropping drinks.
Just as restaurant kitchens must meet stringent flooring specifications, so too, do dining area floors have their own very specific needs. They must be chemically resistant to acidic food ingredients, while also withstanding abrasion from street shoes, chair and table legs and wheeled kitchen carts. Florock can create specific flooring solutions for all restaurant flooring needs, helping to keep day-to-day business running smoothly, free of safety or sanitation concerns.
New restaurant construction must meet exceedingly tight schedules, wherein facilities must be completed on time for testing and training prior to grand openings. Existing restaurants under renovation cannot afford to close off more than one section at a time.
At Florock, our fast-turnaround flooring options give managers of both new and existing restaurants one less thing to worry about. Our low to no odor installation products —can help keep restaurants’ doors open during construction
Restaurants with commercial-grade wood flooring need workers to strip and reseal the floors annually as part of basic maintenance practices. This imposes several days of downtime, making it an unviable option for most restaurants. Carpet has also been a common flooring material for restaurant dining areas, but because of its lack of durability in high-traffic areas, it is losing ground to materials with better lifecycle costs. At Florock, we offer floors for restaurants with some of the best lifecycle values on the market.
While some restaurants think carpet can help control noise levels more efficiently in dining room areas compared to concrete floors, this notion is losing traction in light of the acoustic-control ceiling treatments available. Many restaurants are now realizing the high value in Florock’s epoxy flooring, with its beautiful selection of low maintenance finishes that requires low maintenance, and fast turnaround installation options. These floors stay gorgeous for years with just a mop and bucket or a gentle mechanical scrubber — no waxing or special care needed! Florock is simply the best value for restaurant dining area floors.
