If you have a warehouse, chances are, you have a massive concrete floor. If that floor is uncoated, it is already on borrowed time. Traffic (whether foot traffic of machines), shocks from dropped tools, dirt, and everything else your concrete meets will chip away at it. In addition, chemical spills and oil will absorb into the concrete, weakening it. Thankfully, an affordable option can give you a beautiful warehouse floor that will last 20-30 years more!
Concrete coatings such as epoxy, polyurea, and polyaspartic have many benefits. Let’s look at four more benefits to having your warehouse floor coated.
The difference in visibility between an uncoated concrete floor and a concrete floor coated with epoxy can be up to 300%! That’s an incredible amount of visibility to add without increasing your electric bill or adding more light fixtures.
This added visibility improves the safety of your warehouse and the overall well-being of the people who work there. After all, who wants to work in a dungeon?
Another big bonus for safety is the anti-slip characteristics of coated concrete. Wet or dry, your employees and the stock they are handling will be securely grounded. In addition, we can use additives such as polymer grit, aluminum oxide, mortar, gravel, or sand to create different grip effects.
Strength and Shock-Absorption
Even though a coated concrete floor can look as shiny as glass, it is strong, increasing the concrete surface strength from 3,000 psi to 10,000 psi. So, tools and machinery won’t damage your coated warehouse floor the way they would a bare concrete floor.
A coated concrete floor in your warehouse offers a professional appearance. Visitors will be impressed. And everyone from the company president to the employees that work there every day will be proud to work there. So don’t discount the benefits of high employee morale.
