We’re not going to insult your intelligence by stating the importance of flooring in an industrial environment. Obviously, it keeps you and everything around you comfortable, stable and safe. But the type of flooring that you choose is particularly important, to ensure that your day-to-day life is made as convenient as possible. This is especially true in an industrial setting, where often many pairs of feet and large scale machinery put immense strain on the floor, so you need to make sure that yours is up to the task.
Here at Quest Flooring, we provide many types of industrial flooring that are suitable for varying functions, which is why we have produced this blog to tell you all about industrial flooring and why you may benefit…
Types of industrial flooring
Industrial flooring is, unsurprisingly, designed for an industrial environment. Durable and long-lasting, it can survive the wear and tear that this kind of setting – such as a factory or warehouse – brings. Whereas other kinds of flooring would easily damage or weaken due to the pressure placed upon them, industrial flooring remains tough and an area you very rarely have to worry about once it has been placed down.
There are many kinds of industrial flooring out there, all offered by Quest Flooring, so you can decide on the right solution for you.
Industrial screed flooring
Screed flooring is the perfect fit for warehouses, aircraft hangers, production areas or automotive process lines. This hard-wearing solution is perfect for any areas that need strong flooring to deal with busy or heavy day-to-day use. Industrial screed flooring can also be adapted to wet processing areas so it will not be damaged by damp.
High-build epoxy coatings
This durable flooring solution is smoother than its screed counterpart, but quartz or graded aggregate can be added to ensure it is slip-resistant. We usually see this kind of flooring used in demanding environments such as food, paper, pharmaceuticals, engineering and aerospace industries, as it is easily able to cope with the strain placed on it due to traffic. This is also why high-build epoxy coatings are popular in canteens, corridors and workshops.
Industrial line marking
Here at Quest Flooring, we also provide marking for your industrial floors, which can help with branding or traffic flow in a busy area where safety is paramount. Due to the expertise of our team, we can create any line you require, so you will never feel like your requirements haven’t been met. Our industrial line marking service allows you to customise your premises in a way that’s right for you.
Important to note about industrial flooring
It is important to keep a close eye on various factors when implementing a new industrial flooring solution to your area. Factors such as temperature, moisture and exposure must be considered, as this can affect the condition of the flooring over time and weaken it as a result.
Although practicality is the main function of this flooring solution, the industrial flooring contractors at Quest Flooring can help customise your flooring in a way that best fits your surroundings. For example, we have many different colours available that could help to add brightness to a naturally dark area or present a darker contrast to any bright walls on show.
If you have any enquiries about our industrial flooring – or our resin flooring or polished concrete flooring for that matter – the experts at Quest Flooring can assist in picking the best flooring solution for you.
