Some essential points to consider when choosing an industrial floor include:
How can you guard against staining and slippage dangers?
What are the unique working conditions that your business has?
Will you be using forklifts on your floor?
Do you use chemicals?
Will there be heavy foot traffic?
What type of traffic will your floor be exposed to?
How much traffic will your floor be exposed to?
Will your floors be subjected to heat variations?
Factor in maintenance costs from the beginning
Be aware of what your floor maintenance costs are likely to be. Will you need to wax and polish your floors regularly or will a polished concrete floor reduce maintenance costs or the cost of sweeping and mopping?
Colour is important
Light colours will make the area look larger and brighter…and a brighter space may assist you with improving your lighting.
When you begin to consider flooring options for industrial floors you quickly come to the understanding that you need to make sure that whatever you select is going to be easy to clean, chemical resistant, be able to withstand high foot traffic and machinery traffic and ideally be heat, fire and impact resistant.
