In machine & workshop areas, the flooring system must be tough and hard-wearing to endure heavy workloads, dropped tools, spilled fluids, and large equipment used to fabricate, tool, finish and repair what is needed in the production areas of the facility. These floor areas must also be able to withstand the lubricants, metal shavings, scraps, and filings that may become ground into the finish with frequent traffic patterns in and out of the work zone. Ease of cleaning & maintenance coupled with non-skid resistance are needed to enhance overall safety and appearance. Chemical, stain, impact and abrasion resistance are often critical considerations. A clean, light reflective & vibrant colored floor in the workspace can also motivate better efficiency.
