Why we like level floors

It’s not funny when a forklift truck hits a poor floor joint, in fact it is downright dangerous. The truck bucks and sways and pallets of product can fall off the forks causing damage and loss of money. Serious injury can also result. Every time a truck hits the same spot the joint becomes more worn and more dangerous.

We are frequently asked to make good poor joints. The work can be carried out over weekends and the floor ready for use on Monday morning.

Damaged joints are cut back to a sound surface and repaired with either and epoxy or polyurethane mortar, each of which has more strength than the concrete. Expansion joints are replaced to finish the job.

Just another way that we help our client improve safety and working environments for their staff.
