The uses and benefits of resin flooring
A reliable floor is incredibly important for your business, and different surfaces and materials suit different businesses. Resin flooring, made by creating a chemical reaction between polymers, is an increasingly popular flooring solution due to its versatility and durability. Here’s all you need to know about the benefits and applications of a resin floor.
Why use resin flooring?
Strong – epoxy resin flooring is very durable and twice as strong as concrete, so it can withstand a great deal of pressure and traffic. A stronger floor means less risk of damage to equipment and injury to staff.
Safe – with anti-slip and anti-static properties, installing a resin floor is an easy way to make your workplace safer.
Easy to maintain – resin flooring is waterproof and easy to clean, so spillages are easy to remedy whether it’s water or chemicals.
Where is it used?
Due to its versatility, resin flooring is used in a variety of settings, from industrial to commercial and beyond. For example, the fact that it’s slip-resistant, hygienic and requires minimal cleaning make resin a natural choice for hospitals and catering companies.
Construction and manufacturing companies, meanwhile, use resin floors because of their strength, meaning that heavy machinery and traffic like forklifts don’t become an issue. In short, a resin floor can be a great addition for any business looking for a hard-wearing, long-lasting floor.
Resin flooring is available in a number of styles, each with varying thicknesses and capabilities. If you’re trying to decide which type of resin flooring suits the needs of you and your business, here’s a helping hand courtesy of Floorinsite:
