Why You Should Select Polished Concrete

At PSR our industrial flooring contractors perpetually strive to provide the best flooring systems particular to your business’ needs. When it comes to a reliable and hardwearing floor, there are few better than a concrete flooring system. The beauty of concrete flooring is its potential versatility with regards to application, as well as with its aesthetics. Whilst we have extensively covered the use of epoxy coatings to tszuj up your industrial setting, we have only ever really briefly touched on polished concrete.

There are numerous reasons as to why polished concrete’s popularity is on the rise:


Not surprisingly, polished concrete holds all the same level of durability and hardwearing qualities as concrete flooring because, well… it is concrete! Therefore the floor is exceptionally long lasting, with the ability to withstand a great deal of impact from traffic; footfall or machinery. As a result, your warehouse can expect to benefit from the flooring for years to come. The benefit of the polished concrete is that it actually densifies the surface, creating a shinier finish.


Whilst fantastically durable, we’re aware that concrete may not be the most attractive surface when untreated, but the effect of having a polished flooring is that it creates a much cleaner looking workplace flooring. The shiny nature creates a much more pleasant and attractive aesthetic and can really add a boost to the appearance of your industrial setting. It can offer a pleasant flooring solution for when showing clients around your workplace, and even somewhat improve lighting through its semi-reflective qualities.



The smooth surface of the polished concrete makes cleaning super easy. As opposed to some other flooring surfaces, maintaining and cleaning a polished concrete surface can take no time at all. It is of course recommended that it is waxed fairly regularly, as this helps to improve its ability to withstand impact and reduces the overall rate of depreciation.


Due to the fact it needs little in the way of maintenance, polished concrete makes great cost-effective sense when selecting your preferred type of industrial flooring system. Not only that, it is exceptionally durable, meaning your flooring system will be able to withstand a large amount of impact for many years.

If you are looking for a hardwearing and aesthetically pleasing flooring system for your industrial setting, then polished concrete will certainly meet, and even exceed, your needs.
