Get it right - from the start!

It seems a shame that those responsible for the design of many new building projects in the industrial sector do not give more consideration to the sort of flooring that might suit the use of a new building. More often than not the floors are last thing considered and get left just as plain concrete, often with a rough surface. Some do specify a suitable finish but since the floor finish is often the last operation in the building programme it gets cancelled due to lack of funds. Problems with industrial floors, such as dirt retention, oil contamination and general wear can be traced back to the buildings beginning.

By installing a correct floor from the outset many more years of use will ensue at little cost other than cleaning. Added advantages include improved safety and a pleasant working environment. We offer a wide range of surfaces for all manner of industries. From bright coloured floors to hard wearing screeds, from chemical resistant floors to anti-static finishes. Floors can be laid super flat to SR2 or even SR1, for example where fork lifts have to reach very high, or laid to correct falls to aid drainage.

It is more pleasant to work in, healthier to work in and safer to work in - so why don't they design it that way?
