What you need to know...

Maintaining your floors is not just an aesthetic requirement. According to HSE, oily floors and slipping on dust are the key reasons for slips and falls at manufacturing plants. On average, they cause over a third of all major injuries in the workplace[1]. It’s your responsibility as an employer to ensure that floors at your facility are suitable, in good condition and even when subjected to frequent contamination, people can walk on them without the risk of slipping.[2]

 

Over time, the slip resistance of your floors will reduce and cracks might start appearing, especially in heavy traffic areas. Should a slip accident happen, your company as well as you personally might end up being liable, so assessing your floors and associated health hazards on a regular basis is crucial.

[2]The Workplace (Health, Safety and Welfare) Regulations 1992 (Regulation 12)
If you have rough old concrete that you want to improve, you have a couple of options to consider:

 

  • You can use a thin film, such as paint (the lowest performing option). Your floors will require regular maintenance and will become very costly in the long-term as you will need to repaint them often.

 

  • You can maybe apply a self levelling system which will perform better than a paint but scratches and marks very easily. Self levelling systems often break down on joints under traffic and they are very susceptible to contaminants and moisture in concrete.

 

  • Another option you may consider is to pump a cementitious screed over your existing flooring and then seal it, however, you’ll end up with a glorified painted concrete that will require ongoing maintenance.

 

  • The highest performance option are resin mortarsystems, especially for heavy traffic and production areas as they provide both excellent compressive and tensile strength, which means that they can handle the movement of products, and deliver durable, hard-wearing minimal maintenance floors with great visual appeal. As we have the ability to power trowel our epoxy mortars, we can install any small or large areas of flooring quickly.

Resin floors are extremely versatile and hard-wearing. On average, their lifespan is 10+ years however the floors we install should still fully functional for years after with the correct maintenance. After the correct preparation, they can be laid quickly on top of your existing concrete floors, minimising disruption of your production.

 

Our resin floors offer a great variety of choice when it comes to textures, finishes, decorative elements and functionality. Whether you need to improve the slip resistance of your floor, colour code the movement routes at your facility, improve the durability of your floors or protect your floors from spills and chemicals, resin flooring provides a cost-effective, easy to maintain and durable solution.

According to FERFA, synthetic resin flooring is classified into eight specific types, depending on the thickness and surface finish. It ranges from a basic application of a floor seal, where two or more generally low solvent or water borne coats are applied, through to heavy duty resin flooring where a trowel screed is applied.

 

Choosing the right system for your environment should be a task left to experts, as installing the wrong system can be a very bad investment. I have over 30 years’ experience recommending and installing the correct flooring for a variety of manufacturing and engineering facilities across the UK. Following a thorough assessment of your floors (Area Site Survey), I will recommend the best system for you and take care of your whole project from concept to creation.

Our Area Site Survey is crucial to establishing the condition of your existing floors.

 

We’ll examine your flooring condition, check your floor joints, cracks and areas with high spillages from oil or chemicals.

We’ll consider the type of production, your production cycles and chemicals exposure, traffic at your site, most common temperatures and slip resistance requirements.

Hygiene and health and safety requirements are important too and will need to be balanced with your housekeeping capabilities.

Finally, your budget and your long-term vision for your plant will play a big role too.

No, we’ll take care of everything for you. Your floors will need to be prepared to a high level which may include shot blasting, scarifying, grinding or other means to ensure we have the correct surface to work upon. Depending on the state of your floor and the findings of the Area Site Survey, we may also need to treat the cracks and level the flooring.

This will depend on the condition of your existing floor and the agreed specification of your flooring system following the Area Site Survey. We understand the impact on your business a refurbishment might have and will work around your production plan to minimise any disruption. Our crew is used to work at night, on weekends or during public holidays to meet your scheduling requirements.

This will depend on the condition of your existing floors, the size of your site, the required functionality and finish. Our resin floors provide a great return on investment by helping create an environment that improves the morale of the employees and wows your customers. We work in conjunction with our global partner, who have been developing flooring seals and mortar systems since 1950s, providing the highest quality systems.

Between us, we have 60 years of experience. Our floors are always delivered as promised. We will guide you through the process and give you realistic deadlines that we’ll stick to. We’ll take care of the project from concept to creation.  We will look after your floors and walk the floor with you every twelve months after installation to ensure your investment is maintained as it should be and you are fully satisfied.

What our clients say -

We have been manufacturing at our site in the West Midlands for over 45 years and major renovations were in order to bring the production facility into the 21st century. Chris and his team at Kealy industrial Flooring helped us every step of the way not least by ensuring the production downtime was minimal. Our site is not small and the installation was completed from start to finish in just 8 days.   The final floor has not only transformed the look of the entire site but it ensures a cleaner, safer and more productive future for us.
