Factory Floor Painting
Factory Floor Painting
Industrial Floor Treatments (Stone) Ltd is a dedicated factory floor painting contractor.
Whilst the majority of our contracts are in the Midlands, North West and Yorkshire we do offer our services further afield.
At IFT we apply epoxy resin factory floor paint on small, medium and large factory floors including new build and refurbishment projects.
We also install epoxy and polyurethane resin screeds.
We do not undertake domestic works.
The majority of our contracts are in the manufacturing, assembly, automotive and engineering industries.
Other industries in which we work include printing, paper & packaging, food production, warehousing, 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. Ensuring that pedestrian walkways, forklift trucking aisles, crossover points and work stations are all clearly delineated aids the safety of personnel and visitors.
Box outlines with single directional hatching should be painted at fire exit doors to ensure that they are not blocked with plant, materials or equipment.
Where safety underfoot is compromised because of liquid or powder spillages 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 – colour coded floors help 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 impact on employee morale and customer confidence. It 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.
