Industrial operations have many fast-moving people and machines. Operations create a significant amount of wear – and even abuse. Heavy machinery and mobile units, such as forklifts, can cause gouges, scratches, and abrasion.
Chemicals, oils, grease, and other harsh and corrosive materials are especially hard on floors. Even foot traffic and intrusion by occasional crates and metal items can create issues with an industrial floor, particularly when a great dealing of moving and shoving of heavy items takes place on a daily basis.

We will do everything to make sure that your floors will be as structured for safety as they are for toughness and durability. Our process ensures it.
Any company is making a significant but prudent investment when it decides to resurface an older concrete floor with epoxy. In addition to making the space where is applied more productive by remedying cracks, gouges, and scrapes with a durable and long-lasting epoxy floor, you get some significant side benefits.
When the concrete floors in industrial locations began to be rutty and hard to navigate, it’s a good bet that something needs to get done. Completely tearing out and replacing a concrete floor is a very expensive and time-consuming process. The cost and loss of work time is enormous, so resurfacing with coating may be a cost- effective solution.
Epoxy coating the floors is a great solution and, compared to tearing out and replacing all the concrete, it’s a bargain. It’s durable enough to deal with all the “moving parts” that occur in an industrial setting. Epoxy is resilient enough to deal with pallets, sliding boxes, forklifts, and foot traffic – plus more.
Other benefits - it can help create a safer workplace because it provides good traction with the addition of slip resistance – much better than plain cement – so employees are at a greatly reduced risk for from slips and falls – which not only disrupts our busines but can also cause valuable employees to become injured and set the stage for workers’ comp claims.
The good looks of epoxy/resinous coatings also make it easier to organize and maintain a revived, new look, which usually makes workers feel better about being at work and makes it easier for them to maintain efficiency. Morale is an important issue and having a “nice” workplace helps employees take pride in their work space.
