Mechanical Workshop Flooring Solutions
Is your mechanic shop in Brisbane or Gold Coast in need of a new floor? If so, then you need to reach out to us at My Floor! We’ll provide you with the perfect flooring for any mechanical workshop. Whether you work with cars, trucks, motorbikes or any other vehicle, our flooring solutions will stand up to them all. As you can imagine, there’s a lot of challenges your floor will face in your workshop. If you make the wrong choice here, it could be disastrous. That’s due to the dangerous machinery and working conditions found in mechanic workshops.
Does your workshop frequently deal with oil, chemicals or other liquids? Then you’re going to want to make sure that your floor can handle it. Ideally, you need a non-porous surface that will allow liquids to bead up on top. That way, no chemicals or liquids can seep into your floor and contaminate it. Not only do stains look bad, but they can also be dangerous. Mould, bacteria and other harmful microbial life can form in porous surfaces. Oil spills on regular concrete is a slip hazard for employees and customers.
Vehicle Maintenance Workshop Flooring
Are you thinking of starting a maintenance workshop in your garage? If so, then you should know that standard concrete is not a good flooring option. If your mechanic shop is like most, then it has traditional, untreated concrete as its foundation. While it may seem like a sturdy flooring option, it has many disadvantages in its untreated form. These include:
- Generating dust, especially if machinery is in heavy use
- Stains from chemicals and liquids
- Mould and bacteria can form inside the slab
- It gets slippery when wet and is a trip/fall hazard
- Once it’s stained and dirty, it’s hard to keep clean
- It’s not very durable and will crack and chip quite easily
As you can see, there are many downsides to using standard concrete in your workshop. Whether you’re working in your garage or a big warehouse, untreated concrete is a no-no. That’s why you need to reach out to us at My Floor! We can turn your untreated concrete into a fortified, resilient surface. For a home workshop or workshop with standard concrete, we would recommend:
An epoxy coating is a fantastic option for any home workshop. That’s because it’s easy to install over existing concrete. Epoxy is a chemical compound made from resins and hardening agents. It’s very rigid, non-porous, shiny, and smooth. You can choose from an epoxy coating or an epoxy floor at our company. The difference lies in the thickness. A coating is thinner than a full floor. Coatings are better for installing over existing surfaces.
An epoxy coating in your garage is perfect for a home workshop or a large vehicle service center. Say you drop a heavy tool onto your epoxy floor. Well, you won’t put so much as a dent into it! That’s because an epoxy coating is many, many times stronger than untreated concrete. You can also say goodbye to dusting issues, stains, and cracks!
Bacteria and mould won’t stand a chance at starting to grow inside of your epoxy coating, either. Not only that, but your floor will be effortless to keep clean. You won’t have any trouble sweeping up after a long day of woodworking!

Professional Mechanical Workshop Flooring
Okay, now that you know what’s best for home workshops, let’s look at more extensive facilities. As previously mentioned, your workshop floor will have to meet many challenges. These include:
- Heavy foot traffic
- Debris and dust from machinery
- Spills from liquids and chemicals
- Impacts from tools and machinery dropping
- The surface getting slick from liquid spills
That’s a lot for one surface to have to deal with, huh? So, which flooring solution is best for your facility? Well, first, let’s look at some standard flooring options and why they don’t work.
Many workshops try to use rubber floor tiles. They’re cheap and pretty durable, but they come with many downsides. The first is the appearance. Rubber tiles look relatively flat and dull. Not only that, but their appearance can cause other issues as well. Black rubber floor tiles will reflect light and make it difficult to see. That will also affect the video quality of your security cameras. Lighter colored tiles are available, but they are considerably more expensive than black.
Another downside is the installation process. If you’re going to tackle this yourself, get ready for a backache! These tiles are hefty and cumbersome to move around. Not many professional companies offer installation either. You can expect to spend a back-breaking week of labor installing these tiles.
Vinyl is another option that comes with serious downsides. Many salespeople try to push vinyl as a flooring solution for workshops. They’ll say that it’s visually appealing and durable enough to withstand the environment. That is not entirely true. While vinyl may look nice, it has tons of trouble dealing with heat. Expect your vinyl flooring to warp and develop seams under pressure. Not only that, but vinyl flooring is EXPENSIVE! If you don’t want to go broke installing workshop floors, then you should not consider vinyl!
Now let’s look at our top recommended flooring solutions from My Floor! The following flooring options will quickly meet all of your needs in the workshop. My Floor recommends:
A polished concrete grind and seal system is durable enough to withstand your workshop environment. It features high-velocity impact resistance, as well as superior durability. The process involves grinding back the top layer of concrete and then sealing it with a coating. The grinding process will entirely even out your existing surface. If your concrete has any stains, cracks, or imperfections, the grinding will eliminate them. The resulting surface will be non-porous, even, and completely clean. The coating that we apply then fortifies this floor to keep it looking perfect for years.
Grind and seal polished concrete floors boast the following benefits for workshops:
- Slip-resistant to protect workers
- No dusting issues
- Effortless to clean after a long day of work
- Excellent durability
- High-velocity impact resistance
- Resistant to chemicals and liquid stains
- No bacteria or mold can grow
- A shiny, visually appealing surface
- Thermal properties. That means your floor will absorb heat during the day and release it at night. That will save on your energy bill!
- High-gloss finishes will naturally bounce and reflect ambient light sources. Thus, you can light your workshop with less electricity, saving you more money!
- Epoxy Coatings and Floorings
Just like home workshops, epoxy is also a fantastic choice. An epoxy coating or floor will effortlessly put up with your harsh workshop environment. Epoxy is affordable, durable, and resistant to all chemicals. Your janitorial staff will also love how easy it is to clean! All they need to do is dry-mop and sweep daily, and the floor will stay looking spotless.
So there you have it. Epoxy coatings and grind and seal systems rule supreme in workshop environments.
