Fire & Public Safety Flooring needs to be tough, resilient, safe, and well maintained. These seamless polymer flooring systems have to be dependable and long-lasting as these environments generally operate 24/7. In the apparatus bays, the floors must be hardwearing, chemical, stain, impact, abrasion, and non-slip resistant. They need to be easily cleaned and maintained.
The fire station or firehouse is truly a multi-purpose facility housing large vehicles, equipment, and personnel. There are often administrative, dispatch, office, training, kitchen, dining, recreation/fitness, and sleeping areas. In some cases, the firehouse is used as a community gathering place, with public use areas like kitchen, dining, recreation, and restrooms. Given the wide array of uses, exposures, and traffic patterns, the seamless polymer floors installed in these environments have to be highly functional, heavy duty, easy to clean & maintain, as well as stylistically decorative and appealing for the common & public use areas. In the apparatus, engine & vehicle maintenance bays, the high-build, seamless polymer resurfacing systems must be built to last, with superior impact, wear, chemical, stain, and non-slip resistance. Overall, ProREZ has a diverse yet efficient product and system offering to meet the various performance, design, and budgetary requirements of both large and small firehouse facilities.
Ambulance and EMS facilities require hardworking and hardwearing floor coating and resurfacing systems. The floor areas need to stand up to the ongoing traffic patterns from staff, rolling gurneys, carts, and mobile equipment. Finishes with excellent chemical, stain, abrasion, and non-slip resistance must provide safety and protection from spills, water, aggressive cleaning detergents & disinfectants, etc. Like firehouses, these facilities must also have higher build resurfacing systems in the bay areas to support the vehicle & apparatus loads, as well as the potential for point-impact exposures
Like other public safety buildings, these 24/7 facilities share similar performance, aesthetic, and budgetary requirements. The seamless polymer flooring systems installed in police stations must stand up to heavy foot traffic with hard-wearing and long-lasting finishes. The areas found in these buildings often have diverse uses and exposures, but they all must be easy to clean and maintain while providing lasting protection with excellent abrasion, scratch, impact, chemical, stain, and non-slip resistance. Aesthetics and functionality may vary from operations, dispatch/communication, training & evidence rooms to holding, locker, bath/shower, lounge, and fitness room areas.
Correctional and detention facility floors have diverse exposures and uses from prisoner cell areas, shower rooms and common areas to workshops, kitchens and dining areas. The flooring systems installed in these areas need to be easy to clean & maintain while providing industrial strength with superior abrasion, scratch, puncture, impact, chemical and stain resistance. Floor safety is provided with well-balanced and customizable non-slip resistance. Seamless, non-porous, floor and cove base combined with optional MicrobeBLOK help to better control both hygiene and sanitation. Unlike other conventional flooring products, a hardworking resinous flooring system does not require the long-term life cycle costs associated with waxing, buffing, and chemical stripping. These reduced life cycle costs can bring added value to the flooring investment.
