Manufacturing facilities will subject the floor area to a long list of punishing challenges on a daily basis – including physical impacts, point loading from heavy equipment and pallets, forklift truck traffic and corrosive industrial chemicals to name just a few. Despite all this abuse, it is imperative that the floor maintains a level, seamless, impervious, slip resistant, colourful and functional surface.
Prokem can supply resin flooring systems particularly well suited to locations that need the ultimate in strength and durability. Seamless and self-smoothing epoxy floor coatings also provide a number of advantages over a tile or floor slab finish, as it eliminates the cracks and crevices that contaminants can dwell within.
Colour and bright signage are important factors within a factory, as not only can it help to create a pleasant space for staff, but it can also be an important safety consideration. Clearly marked out walkways, brightly delineated hazard areas and colour zoning to avoid cross contamination are just a few of the ways that installing colourful floors can help make a plant safer.
Wet processing areas will require all of the above flooring characteristics – however the floor must also actively enhance traction underfoot to reduce the risk of slips and trips. Prokem's floors can be textured to increase slip resistance while the seamless nature of the systems helps to quickly remove excess water and contaminants before they can become a problem.
