Manufacturing Facility Flooring Solutions
Manufacturing facilities have certain requirements regarding flooring installations. Certain factors such as wet settings, high-pressure washing, and extreme temperatures can damage floors over time without sufficient protection with high-quality finishes. This makes it necessary to maintain the flooring using a combination of top-quality flooring and maintenance services that can protect the floor for many years.
Manufacturing Facility Flooring Installation Requirements
Substances such as acids and other chemicals will eventually wear down floors without proper protective measures. Heavy foot traffic and machinery can also cause damage to floors over time.
A well-maintained floor will help keep the work environment safe and improve efficiency.
Eliminating the Need for Repairs
When installing solid flooring in a manufacturing facility, it may seem unnecessary to implement policies regarding maintenance, but doing so can help save money on repairs. Equipment and debris will damage the floors without high-quality protection, and once the floor’s surface is damaged, light wear can damage the floors even further. Flooring installers also need to take joint damage into consideration.
Manufacturing companies can ultimately save a lot of money and time if they address these potential problems when initially installing the floor. Keep in mind that damaged flooring can also affect other equipment and staff in a facility, as equipment such as forklifts will require more repairs when used on worn floors, and the risk of accidents and injuries will also be higher.
Floor and Wall Services for the Manufacturing Industry
One of the best ways for a manufacturing facility to maintain its flooring is to install a high-quality floor surface from the start. This could include a protective coating in addition to a properly installed floor base. However, if flooring has already experienced damage because of inadequate protection, manufacturers can also contact professionals for efficient repairs. Flooring experts can also apply epoxy and other finishes to further protect the flooring.
MSC Floors offers several floor and wall services to help keep manufacturing facilities in great condition, including:
Manufacturing Facility Concrete Repair
Concrete will eventually require repairs for minimal to heavy damage. Our concrete repair services include concrete diamond grinding, shotblasting and sandblasting, concrete scraping, floor sloping, scarification, trip hazard removal, floor flattening, dust proofing, and dry concrete cleaning.
Crack and Joint Repair
Cracks often appear in flooring over time as a result of aging and damage, which can increase the risk of accidents and contamination. Crack and joint repair services can remove any safety hazards present and minimize the risk of injury, remove contamination areas, prepare concrete and substrate for the application of floor coatings, and eliminate the potential for bacteria growth.
Concrete prep services are required to ensure that the floor coatings don’t fail, break, or peel over time due to inadequate adhesion. With the help of proper concrete floor preparation before coating, flooring systems will benefit from increased efficiency and prevent any flaws from forming that could leave flooring vulnerable to contamination and damage.
OSHA Floor Striping
Some manufacturing facilities may require OSHA floor striping, which we can also provide to maintain compliance with all OSHA safety guidelines for striping and marking.
Tank and Wall Coatings for Manufacturing Processes
Tank and wall coatings can provide additional protection for critical rooms and equipment, preventing chemical damage while making tanks and walls easier to clean. These coatings also protect against corrosion and can contribute to a safer work environment.
Industrial painting is often needed for manufacturing facilities. We can provide painting for nearly any type of project, from floors to ceilings. Our services can include aluminum and vinyl finishing, seamless urethane and epoxy flooring, drywall finishes, machine coatings, textured coatings, conventional coatings, and more.
Electrical Services for Manufacturing Facilities
