Chesapeake’s schools, auto shops, manufacturing facilities, retail locations, and hospitals are all very different types of facilities and have different demands and priorities.

Tile floors have grout lines, and other sheet or plank flooring systems typically involve either heat welded seams that can be prone to cracking or open seams between click-together panels.

This in turn can create an ideal environment for mold, bacteria, fungi, and other microbes to grow and flourish, potentially leading to health risks for building occupants, staff or visitors.
Epoxy floor coatings are installed over concrete slabs in a liquid form that then creates a smooth, virtually seamless surface, greatly minimizing the number of locations where microorganisms can grow and thrive. If desired, the flooring systems can even be installed with integral cove bases, curving upward where the floor meets the wall to eliminate dirt-catching ninety degree angles, thus providing an even higher level of support for hygiene protocols designed to limitproliferation of microbes, bacteria, mold, or particles of dust and dirt, and help improve health and safety.
