Trying to work out the best floor covering for your needs? Our team can work with you to find the ideal solution for your flooring requirements. We’ll ask lots of questions about how the floor will be used so we can recommend the best solution.
Your operations and industry
The type of work you do will determine the best type of flooring for your needs. We’ll take your industry and operations into account when helping you decide what flooring surface to choose.
Type and amount of traffic
Will the flooring have high traffic or low? Will it mainly foot traffic or will there be trolleys or even vehicles using the flooring? The answers to these questions will help determine the best flooring solution.
Operating conditions for your flooring include factors such as temperatures (e.g. fridges/freezers), whether the environment is wet or dry, and additional operating factors.
Correct surface preparation is the key to a successful flooring system. We’ll analyse the state of the surface to determine the best preparation methods. The preparation process removes paint, dust, and other contaminants, enabling a solid bond.
A machine propels small steel balls (shot) against the concrete, vacuums them up, then separates the dust and debris from the shot, which can then be re-used.
A machine with a high-speed spinning disc (made of carbide, diamond, and steel) evens out and prepares the surface.
A machine pounds a number of carbide or steel tipped rods down on the concrete surface in rapid succession.
A steel drum with small shafts rotates at high revs, chipping away at the surface to remove concrete.
High pressure water blasters are used to remove residue and loose concrete.
Chemicals and detergents
These can be used to remove grease, oil, animal fat and other contaminants.
The final stage in the process is applying the actual flooring system. This is done using rollers, spray, or trowel, depending on the type of coating selected and environmental conditions. Now it’s time to let the flooring system dry so it’s ready for use.
