Commercial Kitchen Flooring NY
Project Overview: Commercial Kitchen Flooring Installation
Existing Conditions: The existing floor was badly eroded from years of greases, fats, and oils eating away at it as well as continuous forklift traffic.
Preparation of existing condition: We started by prepping the concrete substrate by scarifying it with a heavy-duty SASE scarifying machine. This process assures that our flooring materials will make a solid bond to the concrete. Additionally, we edged all floor to wall joints with a hand grinder and cut keyways at all termination points - including around drains and at doorways. These keyways are created by cutting into the floor at about 3/8″ and tapering back about 1″. Once all of the prep work was completed the floor was thoroughly swept and vacuumed to remove any remaining dust and debris that might inhibit bonding.
Conclusion: Once the topcoat was applied, the facility was able to get back into production within 12 hours. Not only will this floor provide years of service to the facility, but it will also provide a safer work environment for employees due to its non-slip texture. It will also reduce maintenance costs because it will speed up cleaning time and reduce wear and tear on carts, hand trucks, and forklifts.

Products Installed: Once we had a clean dust free surface, we began applying the wear coat of GP Fastop SL. This product is a urethane cement product that was applied at approximately 1/8″ and then broadcast to excess with a silica sand aggregate, which adds a non-slip texture, strength, and thickness to the flooring. The finished broadcast floor was approximately 3/16″ in thickness. After the wear coat cured, all of the excess sand was swept and vacuumed up in preparation for the application of the topcoat.
