Things To Consider When Selecting Your Industrial Flooring

Making sure you select the right industrial flooring for your business will save you money, time, and resources.

We have a variety of different surface systems that can be used to meet your exact requirements but making sure you have considered the following aspects will make selecting your floor that much easier.

Things to Consider:


The specification is more important, getting the correct floor or not doing it at all.  Installing the incorrect floor down just to meet a budget is not acceptable.  

We can normally produce a budget quote from a telephone call to ensure it is within the client’s ballpark.  If ok at this stage we would visit the site and confirm.

From this, we can see what materials we could work with to give you the best quality finish and other options you could have with your flooring. We then can go on to quote as accurately as possible.


Knowing what environment your new floor will be set in is crucial for us to match the right system to your area.

Different environments can affect industrial resin floors differently.

Conditions such as temperature, moisture, and sun exposure can all have an impact.

Resin flooring is a widely used and respected surface for an environment, where strength, durability, safety, and hygiene are priorities. 


The purpose of the space, whether this is food manufacturing, pharmaceutical development, or garage workshops, is something that must be considered when deciding what materials to use.

We can offer a variety of solutions that will benefit your space such as a hygienic layer that has antimicrobial properties that food prep areas would benefit from.

Another example could be to install an anti-static resin floor in a chemical manufacturer, to help avoid igniting flammable substances.

Overall, the purpose of your space is crucial to getting the right system installed.


Depending on how much traffic will be going across your industrial flooring, will help indicate if you need a durable layer to your surface system.

Different types of traffic also need to be considered, whether there is a high footfall or if machines such as forklifts, cars, or even airplanes will be crossing your floor.

An epoxy resin floor could be the perfect solution for high-traffic areas.

With its durable properties and anti-slip finish, it will maintain its integrity with high traffic.


Colour can be a key factor when choosing your industrial flooring.

If you need to differentiate designated areas, or need colour to fit into your branding, then we have a wide selection of colours to choose from.

Whatever your reason for wanting colour, we can accommodate.


The finish of your flooring can include properties that you might not have known about before.

This could be chemical resistance, slip resistance, and many other finishes.

Encompassing everything above, we can offer solutions that will enhance your floor and provide further benefits.

With loads of options that cover polyurethane flooring, epoxy flooring, and much more, you can rest assured that here at Surface System, we will provide you with the best options available.
