Warehouse Flooring

Warehouse Flooring

A warehouse floor is at the centre of any manufacturing or distribution business. It is one of the toughest flooring environments you can have, due to the volume of traffic that the flooring has to endure, with most operations being open and operational 24 hours a day, seven days a week. 

Warehouse floors tend to receive high traffic, with the use of machines such as forklifts and pallet trucks. Therefore, one of the key considerations when designing your warehouse floor is to ensure that the flooring is level. This all contributes to complying with regulations such as the Health and Safety at Work Act.

One of our recommended flooring solutions for a warehouse is an epoxy resin coating.

An epoxy flooring solution has many benefits in a warehouse environment. It has customisable slip resistance, good chemical and impact resistant properties which helps the durability of the product, thus making it last longer. 

Your flooring solution needs to be considered carefully as it is not a quick fix solution. You’ll want something that is built to last. In the long run having a flooring solution that is well designed and built to last, will save you money as you will not have to be dealing with so many repairs.

At Surface Systems we are an experienced resin floor company with over 23 years in the industry. We have therefore installed long-lasting industrial flooring throughout the South West and have built up an excellent reputation for high standards along the way.

Case Study: Pharmaceutical Warehouse & Distribution Centre

We undertook a project to carry out renovations and new build work at a number of national pharmaceutical distribution companies throughout the UK. One of the main warehouses and distribution hubs in the South West had a particularly challenging flooring project. 

There were numerous issues whilst preparing the flooring in the warehouse. Our solution was to break out the defective floor back to a dry surface and then treat it with a moisture tolerant epoxy primer prior to filling with a polymer modified screed. For the full details on this project please look at our case studies on our website.
