Anti-Slip Flooring Installation for Industrial Facilities
Industrial and commercial concrete floors can present a physical hazard to employees and customers if an anti-slip floor coating is not taken into consideration. There are many solutions to this problem, and most involve the installation of an epoxy or urethane sealer with a light aggregate added. A textured finish makes this resin flooring slip resistant. In a commercial kitchen, for example, adding extra grit to the glaze coat is often used to improve slipping resistance. The need for slip-resistance varies by application. If you are unsure if your industrial facility needs anti-slip flooring, simply contact us.
What is a Non-Slip Concrete Sealer?
A non-slip concrete sealer is a coating (epoxy-based or urethane) that contains some type of aggregate that promotes traction on the surface. Both epoxy and urethanes can serve as anti-slip industrial floor coverings. There are advantages and disadvantages to each, and your particular situation will determine the best option to choose.
Which is Better: Urethane or Epoxy?
Epoxy and urethane are two thermosetting polymers that provide long-lasting staying power, maintaining their appearance for years. They’re also both durable, which means they can withstand machine and foot traffic without chipping or cracking. Neither one is better or worse, it just depends on the project requirements. Often, both are used during the industrial flooring installation process for added benefits.
