Area Use: Warehouse Floor
Area Size: 1750m2
Floor Type: ResinFlor™
When one of Morleys’ warehouse floors started to break up and dust causing extra workload for staff, they knew they had to to look for a solution and quickly. They have two large warehouses complete with racking but one floor in particular was starting to cause problems. “It was very old and had deteriorated to the extent that the concrete was breaking up in places; creating a dirty and dusty environment.” says Peter Williams, Finance Director. There were also rough and worn concrete areas with some localised damage in need of repair. Warehouse staff needed to clean the products before going out to customers creating extra workload so they embarked on looking for flooring solutions.
The floor system installed was a ResinFlor™ high build coating with an epoxy scratch coat layer which smooths existing concrete over a floor space of 1750m². But before any paint could be applied the existing floor had to be prepared with shot blasting and specialist diamond grinding (see picture in gallery).
The finished floor has had a positive impact and it’s not just helped the dusting issue. “The floor looks great so had an immediate impact on the warehouse team, their working environment, and their attitude to work. I think they feel happy to have had some investment in their area of work. The floor is of course now intact so there is no dust being created from it. Creation did a great job from start to finish and were totally professional throughout. We look forward to them doing our next warehouse floor for us.” John Briggs, Warehouse Manager.
