IBS Logistics Heek Germany

IBS is an integrated logistics provider with innovative solutions for the entire supply chain – from procurement logistics, to order management including invoicing, to product-specific storage, to distribution to retail and end customers on a global scale.

They operate a global distribution centre in Heek, Germany covering 15.000m² with 20.000 storage bays.

The Problem

IBS were expanding the successful operation in Heek and needed 7.000m² of new concrete flooring. Like any busy warehousing operation, the flooring would suffer from very heavy forklift traffic leaving many tyre marks, scuffs and scars. IBS wanted the new flooring to be very durable, easy to clean and with very low maintenance costs.

The Solution

Working with TWINTEC, our partners in Germany, the new concrete floor was laid. After a 30-day curing period all micro roughness was eliminated from the concrete surface with the BECOSAN grinding and polishing system. The floor was treated with BECOSAN® Densifier which significantly increased the hardness of the surface, and finally sealed with BECOSAN® Protective Sealer.

The Result

We asked IBS Book Services what they thought of the finished result. They said, “because of the high abrasion resistance we have hardly any scratches and the dust free surface is very easy to clean. We use much less cleaning agent than in other warehouses. With epoxy coatings, after some years, the surface begins to peel or flake. This is not an issue on this surface”

Lots of new things are happening in the construction industry. For just a few years ago you had to cover the concrete slap with another floor covering. The concrete surface simply was too dirty and too dusty to leave like that – and of cause we all know that dust coming from concrete is very bad for the health.

Before treatment a BECOSAN® floor is polished to a desired shine and, once treated, the floor can even be used in an office area or a car park.
