How Industrial Epoxy Flooring Can Be Used To Streamline Production
Updated: Apr 28
Flooring systems in industrial facilities and warehouses play an important role, and not many people would imagine that a floor could make such a difference.
But if you think about it, every aspect of production takes place on that floor, from transporting products on forklifts to protecting employees from slip and fall accidents.
If your industrial or warehouse floor is not in good condition, it very well may have a detrimental effect on your bottom line. That is why it is imperative that you maintain your business this only will mitigate any major costs down the road. Installing an industrial epoxy flooring system at your workplace can be a great return on investment, lost loads, employee injury, and maintaining your goods cleanly and neatly to name a few.
Here are the top ways that industrial resin flooring can improve the efficiency of your production.
Safety Lines To Simplify Your Process
Industrial epoxy flooring contractors can improve the efficiency of your facility in many ways, flooring goes beyond sealing, it can even be used s a simplify your process making hiring staff easier.
For example, most epoxy flooring contractors will apply the yellow line striping around hazardous areas which can be tripping hazards, cost of injuries, or loss of production by simply clearly identifying safe walking lanes.
These bright yellow lines can make employees more aware of their surroundings, and make them more efficient in their daily activities. It also helps to protect workers from hazards that the workplace presents, making employee injuries less frequent, thus helping to keep the workplace as productive as possible.
Epoxy Flooring Protects Against Wear and Tear at Your Workplace
Concrete resurfacing has many benefits for industrial facilities, especially ones that work with a lot of potent chemicals.
This is one of the main reasons why we recommend industrial resinous floors be installed in industrial warehouses because they often see many chemical spills, which over time can lead to extensive damage to their flooring system.
Luckily, chemical-resistant epoxy flooring is available and can be made to resist corrosive materials such as acetones and solvents, etc.
Industrial flooring that is not epoxy resin can become damaged beyond repair if any of these materials should spill onto it, which can cause holes in the floor and can lead to trip and fall accidents or broken machinery.
Of course, while corrosion protection is not a concern for all, general maintenance will almost create cost savings that well-maintained facilities over time save money through a more controlled maintenance expense.
Seamless Floors Stop Bacteria Outbreaks
Industrial facilities are oftentimes used to store or produce food and beverage products, meaning the facility, including the floor, needs to be especially clean.
Even the smallest amount of bacteria, such as the deadly pathogen Listeria, can shut down a facility, and lead to huge profit losses or even worse. When storing foods, people sometimes don’t think of the floor as being a hot spot for bacteria growth, but since other flooring options can have cracks and crevices, bacteria have a higher potential to thrive there.
This is why we always recommend a seamless resin flooring system for industrial facilities, especially ones that produce or store food products.
Taking these preventative measures can help to ensure that your production does not get slowed or stopped by the presence of a bacterial outbreak.
