Our best-selling factory flooring option
Our best flooring is epoxy flooring because of its versatility and durability. It is the most ideal for factories as well as warehouses and other industrial facilities. Epoxy flooring is known for its ability to last longer than any other flooring materials in heavy-duty work spaces. Epoxy is also excellent at being resistant to chemicals and is extremely easy to maintain. As well, it is strong and durable, which means it takes a lot for it to break and repairs are not often necessary.
Is your Floor doing a good job?
All factory flooring must be good at what you expect of it. It must be capable of doing more than just providing your staff with somewhere to walk. For example:
- Your factory flooring must be resistant to bacteria and chemicals. Any spillages that happen in the workplace should easily be cleaned without any lasting damage to your floor.
- Factory flooring must be sustainable to last its life expectancy. With great flooring comes higher prices, however, it the long run this will save you money as a better-quality flooring will not need any new installations or repairs for many years.
- Factory flooring must be durable and have the best resistance to pressure. Factories tend to require heavy machinery and a lot of foot traffic; the flooring must be able to withstand this pressure with little to no damage.
- Factory flooring must also be aesthetically pleasing, as all floors should be. It is important for your flooring to look the part not only for your visitors but your employees too.
How will painting affect my Floor?
Painting is an important part of factory flooring. It makes your workplace safer to use whilst still looking its best. The main use of painting is demarcation. It includes:
- Pedestrian zones/walkways (walking man) – This gives pedestrians easy access around the factory without any fear that any machinery or heavy-duty vehicles are going to collide with them. Check out the case study – How a bearings manufacturer used demarcation to protect it’s employees.
- Hazard lines/hatching – Some areas may be too dangerous and these hazard lines are there to stop people from going too close to a machine that may cause them harm.
- Outlines – Factories may include bumps and dips in the floors, so it is important that everyone is aware where these are so there are no accidents in the workplace.
- Zebra crossings – With machinery moving about the factory, zebra crossings mean that pedestrians can cross safely. Vehicles can see when someone would like to cross.
- Fire safety routes – It is essential that all employees can easily find a quick route out of the building. Being in such as large and busy workplace, it is important that these routes are as clear as possible.
Especially in factories, it is important to have demarcation on your flooring to provide health and safety information to your employees. Demarcation is used in most, if not, all workplaces which use heavy machinery or heavy-duty vehicles. It is used to prevent collisions whilst separating pedestrians from dangerous equipment.
Painting is also used as traffic control around the factory. It can be used to tell workers where to put items when they have finished with them, or how to use the equipment safely, and tell them which direction it is to the toilets. Without painting, large areas or work would struggle to function and be very dangerous.
