Recently visiting one of our long standing customers based in the UK, it was an ideal opportunity to look at a polyurethane screed we installed in 1998. The client used to apply a floor paint every shutdown to keep the area looking ok. This is the main factory Goods In and Goods Out where they manufacture 1.7m items per day and export 70%.
The client wanted a surface that would withstand heavy Forklift Traffic, 24 hours a day, 6 days a week. The surface would need to be durable, easy to clean and compliment the very high standards that are set and maintained.
We selected a 6mm thick, polyurethane screed for the area, once the floor had been fully mechanically prepared. I’m sure you will agree, they made the correct decision by selecting, firstly the correct flooring contractor and secondly, the polyurethane screed.
The estimated lifespan of the screed is 12-15 years, however this screed has plenty of life left in it yet. I cannot see any reason why they will not enjoy anther 10 years from the floor. Not one day lost due to a slip, trip or fall in this area. Not one day lost due to the area requiring repainting.
