Five misconceptions about resin floors.

Resin floors are very popular in commercial and industrial settings due to their durability, positive properties and attractive appearance. However, some misconceptions about resin floors could lead to confusion and even disappointment. 

Here are our top five misconceptions about epoxy floors and our answers.

Misconception #1: Epoxy resin floors are slippery.

By using a material that has an additional layer of slip resistance and ensuring the components are mixed and installed correctly, slips and falls can be reduced in your workplace, and meet strict health and safety regulations. Regular and effective maintenance together with a comprehensive cleaning regime can help to maintain the floor’s slip-resistant properties.

Misconception #2: Resin floors are difficult to maintain.

When installed according to the manufacturer’s instructions resin floors are actually very easy to maintain. Regular sweeping and mopping, and a cleaning regime using the correct products will help to keep the floor looking and performing at its best. 

Misconception #3: Resin floors are expensive.

Resin floors can be at the higher end of flooring budgets. However, the benefits of a new resin floor installation make it a very sensible investment for your business. The cost of installation can vary depending on the size of the floor area being covered and the choice of system. With resin flooring applications lasting upwards of ten years, they can prove to be a worthwhile investment.
