It is preferable to install resin flooring in open and clear areas but where machinery or fixed plant cannot be easily moved, we can arrange a schedule of works to work around. The wide range of flooring systems that we offer include solvent-free resins that are odourless and safe for any nearby workforce or members of the public.
A key benefit of choosing a resin floor is the wide range of different systems and options that are available from epoxies, polyurethanes, methyl methacrylate (MMA) and more. Any resin floor that we install is always specified with the customer in mind, working closely with a range of product manufacturers to make sure that you have the best service and products available. Alongside a full site survey a number of factors are considered such as the customers industry or line of work, timeframe, current and previous use of the floor, budget, anticipated level of floor traffic as well as any specific reasons for the floor installation such as the reduction of hazards. With this information our sales and technical teams can work with you and the manufacturers to ensure the right floor is installed.
Resin floor systems are largely long lasting as they are designed to be durable and resilient. The service life of a resin flooring system is entirely dependent on several factors such as but not limited to; use of and treatment of floor, cleaning & maintenance regime, environmental factors, heat applied on site, level of traffic, physical stress, chemical exposure, impact, abrasion and exposure to elements. Generally, the service life is unique to the activity or usage on the site that the flooring system is applied to. Additionally, a poorly fitted or incorrectly specified floor will not last.
Initial curing can range from 2 – 24 hours depending on the system installed. Rapid curing systems such as methyl methacrylate (MMA) may cure within two hours for each coating but may not be as durable in comparison to an epoxy that typically cures following 24 hours, accepting light traffic after 48 hours. At the point of site survey and quotation, our representative will discuss timeframes and usage requirements with you, factoring this into proposed specifications and project implementation.
If the appropriate flooring system specified and installed, alongside recommended maintenance and cleaning the customer can anticipate their floor to hold up to against a range of vehicular traffic from HGV lorries, forklifts, scissor lifts and more. We have even installed resin flooring systems into aircraft hangers.
Many of the flooring systems that we can install are formulated to be anti-flip in their standard form. Other floor can be installed to be anti-slip to suit customers requirements, through the addition of a number of different aggregates to the resin.
At this moment in time we do not install resin flooring in home living spaces such as kitchens, dining rooms and living rooms. However, dependent on the individual project we may be able to assist with flooring in outer buildings such as large garages and animal storage buildings.
Most resin floors that we install are onto a concrete or cementitious base, full surface preparation techniques are used prior to application. Previously we have installed resin floor systems on asphalt, wood and tiled areas and requires precise specifications to be devised between product manufacturer and our technical & sales teams.
