Especially for industrial floors, you want to take every precaution to prevent accidents from happening. There is a lot of movement in plants, warehouses, factories, airplane hangars, distribution centers, service bays, and maintenance facilities. With people moving about all day performing various duties, it is essential for the floors to offer slip resistance.
Unless the industrial floors have a slip resistant quality, you are putting the company at risk for an insurance claim or lawsuit. In addition, an injured employee has a direct impact on production, which could cost business and revenue.
The fact is that industrial floors take a beating from not only heavy foot traffic but also vehicular equipment, chemicals, and heavy machinery. Because of that, you need a high-quality epoxy or polyaspartic floor coating that can withstand daily wear and tear.
Although you have different options when looking at industrial floors, one in particular stands out as being an exceptional solution. Offered by Sundek of New Orleans, the SunEpoxy thin mil epoxy floor is ideal. Not only is this floor extremely durable, making it the perfect choice for an industrial environment, it is nonslip.
Your contractor will install the flooring with a brush or roller that produces a seamless appearance. By adding a second coat once the first coat is thoroughly dry, slip resistance increases. The result is an attractive floor with enhanced safety.
In addition to straightforward installation, epoxy floors have low odor and are made with low levels of volatile organics. For wet areas, texture is added to customize the industrial floor for maximum slip resistance. This also bolsters the floor’s ability to withstand various elements, including chemicals, water, and oils.
Although your main priority is industrial flooring that offers slip resistance, your contractor can add other Sundek products to enhance the aesthetics. For example, SunFlek is an impressive flooring system available in numerous colors. When added to thin mil epoxy floors, the overall appearance changes.
Sundek has another product called SunChip, which can be added to thin mil epoxy floors to create customized colors and patterns. Included in this product are multicolored vinyl acrylic paint chips that range in size from 1/8 inches to 3/4 inches. SunChips also come in different colors. Ultimately, your industrial floors will have a higher degree of slip resistance while making the work environment more appealing.
