Flooring protection for the aerospace sector covers many aspects of flight where state-of-the art aviation and aeronautical vehicles must be protected at all costs.
For quite some time aircraft are parked within hangars where heavy equipment, expensive assets, fire risks and corrosive agents become intermingled within a web of metal walkways, complex structures, tanks and different working spaces - presenting a hazardous environment which requires protection from the ground up.
A key aerospace flooring concern is the effect of chemicals such as Skydrol aviation fluid, which can corrode insufficiently robust finishes.
Alongside hangars, the aerospace sector encompasses a wide range of different facilities, including assembly zones, paint shops, maintenance buildings, offices and warehouses – all of which require floors tailored to the specific operating conditions of that area
Failing to install fit-for-purpose floors can lead to a variety of problems, as high-tech aviation and aeronautical vehicles need to be maintained in a clean, efficient space, otherwise the site operator risks creating an ineffective environment prone to breakages, failures and safety issues.
Prokem has two products which are well suited to flooring in these spaces.
