The floor finish in warehouse and distribution centres is crucial to the “smooth” running of the facility, as any bumps, cracks or flaws in its surface can have serious consequences on the ability of lift trucks to move quickly and efficiently among the narrow racking systems.
Electrostatic discharge (ESD) can pose a serious threat to sensitive electronic equipment - damaging circuitry, disabling components and generally posing a threat to a device’s working life. In facilities where flammable materials are present, static can even present a dangerous ignition risk!
Food manufacturing environments are exposed to a wide variety of corrosive by-products and contaminants including fats, hot oils, blood, sugar solutions and natural food acids - all of which can deteriorate insufficiently robust surfaces in a clean zone, resulting in uncontrolled bacterial growth and putting the site at risk of contamination incidents.
Manufacturing facilities will subject the floor area to a long list of punishing challenges on a daily basis – including physical impacts, point loading from heavy equipment and pallets, forklift truck traffic and corrosive industrial chemicals to name just a few. Despite all this abuse, it is imperative that the floor maintains a level, seamless, impervious, slip resistant, colourful and functional surface.
