Heavy duty environments and tools require the presence of a floor that can withstand daily pressure of intense traffic, caustic liquids and other types of shock that standard flooring cannot.
Though possessing an alluring shine, industrial polished concrete floors Brisbane aren’t just about looks; rather, they’re all about delivering ultimate performance.
Industrial and commercial settings mandate a flooring solution which will be sturdy, practical and hygienic with low on-going costs and minimal maintenance required.
As this variety of application can be quite demanding and standard flooring solutions will not satisfy the high criteria for industrial settings, using a polished concrete process intended for industrial environments gets us a surface that is ten times more resistant to abrasion than the original surface, all the while reducing noise and dust levels.
Coatings on standard floors always prove to be inadequate in the long run when it comes to industrial environments, since they have to be reapplied very often. Not just that, but coatings tend to disrupt the general flow of traffic as they take time to cure and dry.
On the other hand, polished concrete has no such restrictions and can support all traffic within its specifications as soon as it is installed. Also, the lifespan of polished concrete far surpasses any lifecycle of the conventional floor coating.
Thankfully, we can now learn from the mistakes of past generations and improve our methods of concrete polishing by creating completely new and innovative approaches to how we see, use and process concrete flooring.
By utilising the latest in concrete processing science, we create sustainable and environmentally friendly solution to the problem of concrete flooring requiring massive amounts of cement, aggregate and other substances that damage its sustainability in the long run.
It’s not just about creating a concrete floor that has ultimate performance; it is about leaving it as a green legacy to the next generation.
Industrial polished concrete Brisbane is best installed from scratch, but it can be applied on an existing surface if it fits the suitability criteria.
In some cases, especially when aggregate used in concrete consists of unusual elements, such as seashells, special care is needed to make sure the polished floor conforms to industrial standards. My Floor is adept at processing all types of concrete floors as well as removing all existing tiles, vinyl and carpets in order to expose and assess the underlying concrete surface.
In all cases, a concrete surface is considered polished only after it has been thoroughly processed with a 400 grit tool, but generally speaking it is polished to at least 800 and sometimes even 3000 grit level.
This means creating the polished concrete surface sometimes requires 10 or 15 steps of gradual refinement. The surface look of industrial polished concrete doesn’t need to be uniform and can be enhanced with a variety of lines, patterns and other visual elements.
Company logos, custom artwork and any other decorative element can be installed within the industrial polished concrete, thus enhancing the visual experience and further contributing to the modern and minimal design that emphasizes self-reliance and sustainability.
Polished concrete is simply the ultimate solution, not just due to its ease of maintenance, but also since it conforms to all safety standards and regulation for injury prevention. High friction coefficient ensures that the polished concrete is equally safe when used by vehicles such as fully loaded forklifts and personnel alike.
Even when wet, polished concrete maintains its high safety rating and can still be used normally until the liquid spill is removed.
Industrial polished concrete is the most environmentally friendly flooring solution, as it eliminates the need for tiles, carpets, vinyl and other unsustainable methods of flooring.
In the long run, this removes the need for constant maintenance of the floor surface, as well as all the places where dust and other allergens can be deposited. Since industrial polished concrete will not dent or chip, the only maintenance required is occasional wet mopping with water to remove all surface debris.
Industrial polished concrete conforms to the highest safety and health standards with its non-slip surface and the absence of microscopic pores where infectors usually accumulate. As such, it is perfect for environments that require high levels of sterility, such as hospitals, schools and airports, but can be applied wherever there is a need for high performance flooring.
Industrial polished concrete is highly reflective and will reduce the need for additional lighting with its surface, further helping the owner reduce the energy requirement for its functioning. A properly maintained industrial polished floor will easily give you at least 100 years of service. Turn your concrete floor into a valuable asset with My Floor’s industrial polished concrete.
At this moment, we provide polished concrete Brisbane, Gold Coast, Melbourne, Sydney, and Sunshine Coast.
