Kitchen Flooring System

Project Overview: Kitchen Flooring System 440 sq ft with 4 inch cove

This kitchen flooring system was the first part of a two phase project we started with our friends over at A&E network. Their headquarters in Brooklyn was receiving an overhaul inside and out and they brought us in to tackle the unique flooring needs of their kitchen and TV studio floors. The kitchen was a rather routine and quick process as it was on the smaller side at only 440 sq ft. To start the project we shotblast the floor for our mechanical preparation of the substrate to be resurfaced since the floor was a relatively new concrete slab. Once blast & cleaned, we installed our integrated cove base, and proceeded with our urethane slurry application of GP Fastop M.  In to the slurry we broadcast a 30-grit aggregate to create the non-slip texture we previously determined to be ideal for this work space. After our resinous slurry had set up we then removed the excessive aggregate and hand stoned the new surface to create a consistent texture for our prime coat of GP3746 For the top coat we specified GP9844 as it can tolerate higher temperatures from ovens, fryers & any hot greases or oils, as well as providing a safe slip proof surface for employees and ease of cleaning. However the best feature of 9844 is its antimicrobial properties, meaning it stop the growth of microorganisms which help keeps consumers safe and A&E well within the regulations of the required flooring needs mandated by the USDA. 

 

Scope:

  1. Mechanically prepare substrate as per manufacturer’s specifications
  2. Mask out surrounding areas
  3. Patch and imperfections in slab to create a consistent finish surface
  4. Inspect and touch up if necessary
  5. Apply Fastop M urethane cement
  6. Buff out slurry bed
  7. Apply GP 3746 epoxy coating
  8. Apply GP 9844 antimicrobial polyaspartic

Result:

After  a number of meetings with our client to ensure we would be able to adhere to there strict timeline, our engineers designed this system to meet their strict needs while making sure we still were able to meet the strict USDA/ SQF guidelines a commercial kitchen floor requires. We determined that the urethane cement flooring was the perfect application due to its tenacious bond & how well it handles thermal shock from the various temperatures that a commercial kitchen flooring surface frequently encounters. This resinous floor will serve the restaurant for years to come and provide them with a more durable and sanitary kitchen flooring system.

         Resinous flooring is a remarkably diverse field. Although many facility managers think of our work as a matter of repairing a concrete substrate and then coating it, many more considerations are necessary. We work primarily with 4 polymer chemistries - epoxies, urethane cements, MMAs & vinyl esters. These…
