What is Industrial Flooring?
Industrial flooring is flooring tough enough to withstand chemicals and machinery associated with industrial businesses. It’s useful for not only warehouses and manufacturing, but many different buildings, such as airports, hospitals, and laboratories.
At Painters USA, we pride ourselves on being experts in industrial flooring. We have worked with thousands of customers in a wide range of industries who are extremely satisfied with our professionalism, clear communication, and outstanding work.
Different types of industrial flooring
There are several main types of industrial flooring. We take away the stress by making sure your industrial business has the best floor that will last for years to come. Let’s explore the different ones and which may best suit your business needs.
Epoxy floors are one of the most popular picks for many industries. Epoxy can be applied on any existing flooring, including concrete, tile, and more. Epoxy is resin-based and easy to maintain, which makes it a perfect fit for warehouses and manufacturing facilities. With fast curing time, your company downtime is minimal. Furthermore, epoxy flooring is customizable for your specific needs—including an anti-microbial coating to meet the sanitation requirements for your food production or healthcare facility.
Concrete is extremely versatile. It’s the base for most industrial flooring and can be combined with other types of flooring, such as epoxy or polyurethane, to create a nearly indestructible floor. Many industries, such as manufacturing, warehouses, auto service areas, and office
Vinyl composition tile (VCT) is strong floor that easily holds up to wear and tear, including that of heavy machinery. VCT is affordable, which makes it a practical pick for many industries. Additionally, it has an anti-static option, which is perfect for electronic manufacturing plants, laboratories, and healthcare facilities. VCT can be covered with additional coatings, such as epoxy, in order to make it last longer.
Another popular choice for industrial floors is polyurethane because of its scratch-resistant and waterproof surface. The chemical makeup of polyurethane protects the floor from moisture and bacteria, also giving it protection from extreme temperature fluctuation. Polyurethane is used as a topcoat and can be combined with epoxy to create a floor that is virtually impenetrable. Our experts work with you to create the best combination for your needs. We pride ourselves in our customer service and ensuring that you’re completely satisfied.
Although the terms urethane and polyurethane are often used interchangeably, the chemical makeup is different. Urethane flooring is seamless and durable, especially against chemical spills. It can be poured directly on top of concrete, and is thermal shock resistant. We guarantee our floors will last no matter what they come against.
