Case Study: Vehicle Contract Hire Industrial Resin Flooring Installation

ACC Flooring was asked by a new client to provide a solution for their two depots in Yate and Avonmouth. Pearce Bros. are a successful family business founded in 1979 and are the largest contract hire and vehicle solutions specialist in Bristol and the surrounding areas.

The depot at Yate consisted of both Workshop and Body Shop areas measuring 415m² whilst the Workshop at the Avonmouth depot measured 320m².

As all the areas to both depots had been coated several times in the past, the concrete substrates were shotblasted and the edges prepared by vacuum enclosed diamond grinding to remove any laitance and providing a clean surface. ACC Maintain Floor Repair, a low odour polyurethane concrete, which is an easy to used floor patching compound was needed to infill any imperfections, such as holes and dings to the surfaces.

Altro Flow self-levelling epoxy system installed at 2 – 3mm was applied to the Workshop and Body Shop at the Yate depot to act as a scratchcoat to improve the quality of the substrate prior to the epoxy coating application.

2 coats of Altro Tect fast-track, high build epoxy coating in Winter Grey was installed to both depots with the addition of a slip resistant aggregate scatter between coats at the doorways. Altro Tect is ideal for light to medium duty industrial applications and offers excellent chemical and abrasion resistance. The fast-track option has the added advantage of a faster initial cure time to ensure that the second coat can be applied early on the second installation day to guarantee that the areas can be trafficked the following morning ensuring that the business suffered no downtime.

Altro Tect provides a high gloss finish to the surface which is fully sealed and easy to clean and is ideal for general industry, warehouse and vehicle workshop environments and is available in 27 standard colours.

Additional demarcation in Altro Line, a high gloss, high visibility epoxy line marking system in Safety Yellow was applied around ramps, pits and brake tester. This product is perfect for defining walkways, isolated areas or spaces and is also available in Black, White and Safety Red.

Both depots were completed over consecutive weekends to the delight of the client.
