It may seem that choosing an industrial floor is something easy and quick, although the truth presents the same problem as when we must decide what type of floor we should place in our home or office.

The decision is usually much simpler when you know the use to be given, taking into account the machinery used as well as the mobility of vehicles and employees in the area where the new industrial floor is to be installed. The initial conditions of the floor site must have a series of basic requirements to make the installation as easy and with the best possible results.

Industrial flooring must be resistant to its intended use. In addition, if possible, provision should be made for any damage that may arise in the future to occur the later the better. Other factors that should be considered before choosing the right floor would be:

Factors to be considered before choosing an industrial floor

  • The slip resistance of the floor
  • Impermeability
  • Easy cleaning and maintenance
  • Resistance to impacts and high temperatures
  • Jointless industrial floors to facilitate the movement of machinery and vehicles.

Although it is not a priority, the wide variety of designs and colors available should be taken into account. In this way you can contribute to making the working areas a pleasant place to be.

Considering all these factors, it will be easier to decide the industrial floor. Among the various types of floors exist:

Common types of industrial floors

  • Concrete:

    The most traditional and used method of flooring in industrial areas, as well as in warehouses, logistics centers, garages, shopping centers, and other interior and exterior spaces. Despite the wear it faces over time, the multiple excellent properties of a concrete floor offer a high-end product and factors that should be considered in this type of flooring.

  • Polyurethane:

    It offers good chemical, mechanical and thermal resistance, making it a good choice for interiors and/or exteriors. It also offers a great capacity to absorb UV rays without any deterioration of the surface over time. Its good acoustic absorption and diverse designs and colors make it a viable and reliable solution.

  • Epoxy:

    It has a high leveling capacity and offers smooth finishes with a high chemical resistance. Its design offers several options in terms of slip resistance, which can vary according to the requirements of each area.

There are other options, such as floors made of new and recycled PVC. These are optimal for covering artificial surfaces that present contaminant chemical content problems.

Therefore, the detailed study of the area to be poured, constant use, daily traffic and commitment to the environment will be decisive factors to be taken into account when making the decision on the type of material to be used for the installation of an industrial floor on your property.
