Epoxy Cove Base
In facilities where cleanliness is not optional, epoxy cove base is an indispensable element of your floor. By creating a seamless, smoothly curved transition between floor and wall, epoxy cove base gives contaminants no place to hide. Food processing facilities, schools, hotels, stores, restaurants and factories - any facility requiring frequent cleaning, in fact - should consider using epoxy cove bases as part of their overall flooring system.
What is Epoxy Cove Base?
In any normal room, the place where the floor meets the wall is a 90 degree angle, but a cove base creates a smooth, sloping transition in this location. As part of a complete epoxy flooring system, a cove base allows the floor coating to also cover the bottom section of the wall, with no seams or breaks.
What Are the Advantages of Epoxy Cove Base?
A 90 degree corner is normally hard to clean because a broom, mop or other cleaning tool cannot reach all the way to the meeting point. This allows dirt, mold, mildew and bacteria to reside and grow, unchecked. Especially in an environment where moisture is present, this leads to problems with bacterial growth.
Epoxy cove base, however, eliminates the tight corner by providing a sloped transition that is easy to clean and provides no refuge for contaminant growth. Especially when used in conjunction with antimicrobial flooring, an epoxy cove base will facilitate a cleaner, healthier workplace.
