Industrial Flooring Solutions by My Floor
There are lots of elements at play in your warehouse at any given time. Forklifts whiz by, workers are continually walking about, materials get transported, and more. It would be best if you had a floor that could put up with such heavy traffic. The wheels from vehicles and boots from workers can do a number on traditional concrete. Plastic and rubber flooring are often worn down by such traffic as well. Not only that, but you need floors that are resistant to high impacts. Say, for example, that one of your workers drops a large crate off the forklift. If your floor isn’t durable enough, it will crack and suffer damage. A cracked, uneven floor is an obvious safety hazard to your employees.
Traditional concrete also has a lot of problems with dust accumulation. You want to keep your manufacturing warehouse clean. After all, you’re building products that need to stay in pristine condition. Also, the last thing you want to do at the end of a long hard day at work is to clean the dust off everything. An ideal warehouse floor is a seamless one that won’t create dust
Before selecting a floor, you need to know the hazards that it has to put up with daily. As previously mentioned, a manufacturing warehouse is a busy and sometimes dangerous environment. Your floor should be able to deal with the following issues efficiently:
- Spills and stains. Many warehouses deal with transporting liquids in some capacity. As a result, spills are inevitable sometimes. Surfaces like traditional concrete stain quite easily when something spills. Not only does this look bad, but it can lead to the buildup of chemicals in the concrete. The ideal floor for a warehouse is a non-porous one. We have many solutions at My Floor that are stain-resistant for this very reason!
- Slippery when wet. If you do suffer a spill, then your floor will become slippery. If you’ve got a foundation with slip-resistance built-in, this won’t be an issue. Sadly, traditional concrete and other surfaces are not non-slip and are dangerous. Make sure you get a flooring solution from us that’s 100% slip-resistant!
- Wear and tear. Forklifts, dollies, trucks, machines, equipment, workers, and more will wear on your floor. You need a surface that’s incredibly durable so that it won’t crack under pressure. Not only that, but a surface that has a long lifespan is also ideal.
- Dust, dirt, footprints, mud, and debris. Warehouses tend to get messy. Workers wear boots inside and outside, dirt builds up, and machines create debris and dust. A non-porous, stain-resistant floor is a must. That way, you won’t have to waste a bunch of time cleaning at the end of the day. Our flooring solutions at My Floor are effortless to maintain!
Epoxy has been wildly popular in industrial settings for many, many years. Epoxy is a tough compound made from resins and hardening agents. An epoxy coating is slightly less thick than an epoxy floor. Epoxy coatings are versatile, and we can install them over existing surfaces. An epoxy floor is an excellent idea if you’re constructing your foundation from scratch. Epoxy floors are perfect for warehouses due to their incredible durability and stain-resistance.
An epoxy floor can easily withstand all the heavy vehicle and foot traffic. Epoxy is also resistant to heavy impacts. You won’t have to worry about your employees making so much as a dent in it! We can also add a non-slip additive to the coating. That way, your workers won’t have to worry about slipping on a wet surface.
Epoxy coatings are non-porous and are resistant to stains, chemical buildups, and dirt. As a result, they’re effortless to keep clean after a busy day of work. Dry mop and sweep, and you’ll be all set!
In short, an epoxy coating is an ideal warehouse flooring because:
- It’s tough and durable enough to withstand heavy traffic and high impacts
- It’s non-porous and won’t stain or accumulate dirt
- It’s effortless to keep clean
- It’s non-slip
Our next solution is a grind and seal polished concrete system. As the name implies, grind and seal involves grinding back the top layers of a concrete slab. From there, we fill the concrete with a densifying agent that will preserve the surface. When we grind back the slab, we’re also able to expose aggregates. These are pieces of stone embedded within the concrete slab that add a decorative look.
For warehouse floors, a decorative look isn’t a top priority. As a result, nil exposure is often widespread in warehouses and factories. Nil is the lowest amount of aggregate exposure.
You can also add a gloss finish to your grind and seal floors. You can choose from a matte finish, medium-gloss, or high-gloss finish. The glossiness is decorative but also has a practical purpose as well. Due to its reflectiveness, it boosts the amount of ambient light in the room. As a result, you can save money on electricity by amplifying natural light! Your grind and seal polished concrete floor will also absorb heat during the day and release it at night. These floors can save you some serious money!
Grind and seal systems are great for warehouses because:
- They’re incredibly durable and resistant to high impacts
- They’re easy to keep clean
- They’re reflective and amplify natural light
- They release heat during the night to save on energy bills
- They’re resistant to staining, and we can add non-slip additives to the coating
Finally, burnished concrete is a smart option in warehouses. A burnished concrete floor seals your existing surface. From there, we finish it with high-grit diamond buffing pads. This produces a high-gloss finish that’s smooth and even. Burnished concrete is an affordable way to give your existing floor a super shine. Due to the gloss finish, you get all the durability and resistance from polished concrete. The only difference is that there’s no actual grinding that takes place.
Is your warehouse in Brisbane on a tight budget? Then burnished concrete is the way to go! It’s a delicate process, and it is difficult to get right if you don’t know what you’re doing. That’s why it’s essential to use our expert team at My Floor! We create beautiful burnished concrete floors that are smooth, even, and resilient.
A burnished concrete floor makes an excellent warehouse surface because:
- It’s cost-effective
- It provides a completely even gloss finish
- It’s very durable and resistant to stains
- It’s easy to keep clean and maintain
- It’s a great way to spruce up an existing concrete surface
- It will withstand all the heavy foot and vehicle traffic with ease
