Automotive Sector including Car Showroom Flooring
Vehicle Manufacturers, MOT workshops & Car Showrooms
Busy car production lines need durable flooring to accommodate heavy machinery, moveable equipment, and traffic such as forklift trucks. In addition to abrasion-resistance and heavy-duty flooring, industrial environments standards may require factory line marking paint, demarcation, of walkways for pedestrians, or hatched no entry areas. Resin floor paint can be used to designate vehicle or charging bays and packing or delivery areas. Safe anti-slip finishes and antistatic flooring can reduce the risk of static build-up.
Vehicle repair and maintenance areas need to be tough as they are prone to impact from dropped tools, liquid damage from oil and fuel spillages, heat damage from welding, and unsightly tyre marks. Meticulous preparation to existing contaminated greasy floors is the key to a successful new flooring system installation.
Properties such as chemical, thermal and impact resistance will be essential to ensuring the floor performs and lasts, just like the intention for a repaired motor vehicle and MOT bays and inspection pits may require safety lining and demarcation to meet VOSA standards. Wash down bays and areas where cars are valeted and cleaned will require effective drainage to prevent flooding, anti-slip properties, and chemical resistance to cleaning products to ensure it is fit for purpose.
Car Showroom Flooring
A car showroom needs to be an attractive, clean, and luxurious floor, reflecting what a customer is looking for in their vehicle purchase. The car showroom environment needs to appeal to the buyer who will potentially make a significant purchase. A professional and trustworthy impression will not be gained from a cracked and dirty floor.
Showroom floors need to be selected appropriately considering load bearing, easy maintenance, and decorative properties. An impermeable resin system is stain resistant as spillages are not absorbed by the floor. With a seamless finish it is easy to clean, with no dirty grout lines, keeping a hygienic, gleaming surface to present to potential clients.
For that extra touch of class and opulence, a wide range of terrazzo designs allow endless design and colour options including the opportunity to get creative and brand your business floors, with colours, design, or even your logo embedded into the floor.
