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