Manheim Car Auction Wash Bay

Chemical Resistant Floor

Squeaky Clean

Manheim are a global family owned business and a leading UK provider of integrated products and services for the vehicle remarketing sector. They contacted us as they wanted us to install a new chemical resistant floor in the wash bay.

Under Attack

The car auction uses a wheel wash with a low ph and over the years it has led to erosion and cracking of the floor. They needed to replace it with something that would resist the chemicals so we applied an SBR polymer screed to provide a draining floor to the central gully outlet. Then we installed Flowcrete HF at 6mm thickness to provide a chemically resistant anti-slip finish that’s also easy to clean.

Working in All Weathers

The wash bay is open to the elements front and back, and we needed to install this during winter, which provided its’ challenges! But all went smoothly and when we went back at completion the wash bay operative was very happy with his new floor.

What the client said:

I’m so happy with this floor. It’s made my life so much easier as it only takes five minutes to clean it now instead of forty five!
