Commercial Kitchen Flooring
Food and Beverage Flooring Always Starts with Good Concrete Resurfacing
They say measure twice and cut once, the same holds with commercial kitchen flooring. A solid long-lasting food and beverage flooring system must have a solid and clean substrate as its foundation.
Concrete resurfacing is critical to include patching any voids, cracks, and holes before starting your new resinous flooring system.
To apply urethane cement flooring the manufacturing requires we achieve a concrete surface profile of 4-5 or a rough surface. As these floors tend to cure in a curling fashion, this is why urethane cements bond so well. Of course, removing all loose dust and debris is a must to eliminate any bond inhibitors.
The Install Process of your new Commercial Kitchen Floor
Commercial kitchen flooring should always include an integrated radius cove base to eliminate any corners for bacteria harboring and ease of cleaning. A typical cove is four inches in height with a one-inch radius. It needs to feather into the substrate so the finished floor will tie in without any seams or joints.
The next step would be to apply the urethane cement slurry. The thickness is controlled by a notched squeegee and rechecked by counting mixes and calculating the covered flooring resulting in a nominal or typical thickness.
Urethane cements have a short pot life or working time. So while we pull the slurry we have another team broadcast aggregate at the coarseness of our client's choice. We are careful to broadcast to excess thus creating an even finished surface for your new working surface.
