Factory Floor Painting
Industrial Floor Treatments (Stone) Ltd are Midlands based a dedicated factory floor painting contractor. We specialise in the installation of epoxy resin factory floor paint and epoxy resin and polyurethane resin screeds on new build and refurbishment projects throughout England.
We do not undertake domestic works but concentrate solely on industrial premises where floor painting is required.
We prepare and paint concrete floors in manufacturing & engineering plants.
We also install floors in the printing, paper & packaging industries, food production facilities, warehouses, garages and workshops.
For our commercial clients such as hotels and restaurants this generally involves the application of a food grade floor finish. These are installed in the back of house areas such as kitchens, food preparation areas, potwash and other areas of high footfall.
So why paint your factory floor?
Safety. By ensuring that pedestrian walkways, forklift trucking aisles, crossover points and work stations are all clearly delineated to ensure the safety of personnel and visitors.
Box outlines with single directional hatching should be marked out at all fire exit doors to ensure that they are not blocked with plant, materials or equipment.
Where safety underfoot is compromised because of liquid spillages such as oil or water or where fine powder settles on a smooth floor finish an anti-slip finish should be considered. This is generally deemed a requirement where a slip potential will arise on a regular basis and can be anticipated.
Where an unforeseen accidental spillage occurs such as a machine leak an anti-slip finish is generally not required subject to prompt cleaning up.
Operational Benefits – a colour coded floor helps to co-ordinate all activities from Goods In to Despatch. An organised workflow where pallets, raw materials and finished goods can be placed and stored correctly is essential. Quarantine areas can be clearly marked out and marshaling lanes or storage bays clearly defined.
Light reflection – a painted factory floor with a gloss finish will reflect more light than bare concrete. This provides greater visibility in your facility promoting safety and reducing the need for auxiliary lighting. We can restore the most eroded of floors, repair cracks and spalled joints as well as damage from years mechanical or chemical abuse.
Aesthetics – one of the primary reasons to paint your factory floor is the vibrancy and colour that it produces.
Employee morale – clean, glossy epoxy resin flooring impacts on employee morale, customer confidence, and creates a more enjoyable workplace environment than one that has dull, dirty or bare concrete floors.
Ease of cleaning – polyurethane & epoxy resin floors tend to be easier to clean. Bare concrete floors attract and hold dirt whereas a resin floor paint will provide a barrier that makes clean-up faster and easier. Painting your floor also help keep them dry and safe and reduces the cost of sweeping and scrubbing.
Protection from wear – concrete floors coated with polyurethane or epoxy resin floor paints will last longer than uncoated concrete. Vehicle traffic, particularly when combined with other factors, can wear away the cement matrix of concrete slabs and expose the aggregate. An epoxy resin floor paint will protect the concrete.
