Characteristics of Industrial Warehouse Flooring


Industrial floors for a warehouse factories should provide both general performance characteristics: resistance to mechanical stress, dust, hygiene; and unique performance properties of the floor for various purposes.


The modern warehouse occupies an essential place in the structure of organizations. The protection of the concrete floor of the industrial floor in the warehouse prevents its premature destruction, reduces maintenance costs, thereby improving the performance of the industrial floor.


The choice of industrial flooring can be evaluated on the basis of basic requirements for warehouse floors:


1. Resistance to Mechanical Stress


Stability of industrial floors for the warehouse from abrasive wear is important. Abrasive wear (abrasion) occurs during the movement of goods and equipment, traffic, equipment and people in the warehouse. Abrasion is one of the main reasons for the destruction of industrial floors in a warehouse.


The use of machines for packaging and transportation, unloading/loading led to an increase in the weight of individual units of cargo, which led to an increase in the loads per unit floor area for the warehouse. This increased the risk of destruction of the concrete floor. Therefore, increasing the resistance to mechanical stress plays an important role in protecting the floor of the warehouse.


During work in the warehouse, there is always a risk of falling of various heavy items and equipment, containers and solid packaging elements. Increasing the toughness of the floor for the warehouse makes it possible to protect the floor from damage caused by impact loads.

2. Resistance to chemical loads

Carbon dioxide corrosion of concrete is the main reason for the dusting of concrete floors. In this case, the free lime of the concrete base under the influence of carbon dioxide of air is converted into a microcalcite (pulverized calcium carbonate).

Because of the use of machines and mechanisms, contamination of the floor of the warehouse with combustive-lubricating materials and products of engine operation occurs. Industrial floors for the warehouse are under the damaging effect of chemicals, various liquids and salts. Therefore, the high chemical resistance of the coating - the requirement to protect the concrete base.

3. Compliance with standards

Industrial floors for a warehouse must comply with the provisions of Fire Safety and Sanitary-Hygienic Rules and Norms.

The methods and quality of cleaning can improve the level of floor hygiene in warehouses.


4. Decorative Properties


The appearance of the floor in the warehouse, its design and color solution, the need to mark up or logo - important floor parameters.


5. The Economics


The cost of constructing an industrial floor for a warehouse, the timing of its commissioning, durability, and maintainability, all this affects the economic characteristics.


In addition to the basic requirements, additional requirements may be imposed on industrial floors for a warehouse, which are determined by specific operating conditions. For example heat resistance, antistatic, increased chemical resistance, anti-slip properties. Providing additional requirements often leads to an increase in the cost of coverage.


The use of polymer coatings can satisfy almost all the requirements that are imposed on the industrial floors of the warehouse. Polymer floors are fireproof. The choice of polymer materials and coatings on their basis makes it possible to select the polymer coating floor with the properties necessary for a particular operation as efficiently as possible.


Among the polymer, floors are allocated polyurethane floors for the warehouse. Polyurethane coating is elastic, have increased wear resistance. Polyurethane impregnation for concrete penetrates deep into concrete at 2-6 mm. In this case, the top layer of concrete is saturated with polyurethane and is converted into a concrete polymer that completely seals and dusts the concrete surface, strengthens and strengthens the base.


On the basis of polyurethane, the following industrial floors for a warehouse can be made: impregnation of concrete (economical and effective way of protecting the base), thin-layer coating, highly filled (quartz-filled) polymer floors, arrange a floor for storage. The properties of the polyurethane material allow you to combine different types of coatings in separate sections of the floor of the warehouse, which allows you to significantly reduce the cost of the entire floor for the warehouse.


A simple technology of polymer coating and impregnation for concrete, high productivity of work, fast polymerization time allows shortening the time of repair and introduction of floor for the warehouse in working mode.


Concrete floorsarethe most effective solution for floor protection of the warehouse.

The choice of the applied flooring of the warehouse is best entrusted to BGSB India.
