When you take a look around your industrial site, how does it make you feel? Often among all of the state-of-the-art equipment and incredibly expensive renovations completed, you’ll find cracked and dull flooring that can really diminish pride in your facility.
Of course, you don’t always have to be proud of your floor, so long as it serves its purpose, right? If it is safe and stable and your employees are safe to walk on it without tripping, there seems to be nothing to worry about. The floor is probably the last item on your to-do list, as in your eyes it is not a money-maker. So, you let out a sigh and get on with your day. Right?
Wait a minute!
The reality is your facility’s flooring is essential to keeping up a steady workflow and having it polished has a much bigger impact on your “bottom line” than you might think.
Five Benefits of Floor Coating
1. Better looks
Let’s not deny the obvious, a nice freshly polished floor makes any industrial site look like a million bucks. Better, it makes you feel good. Even more, you may notice your workers be in a better mood too. When clients tour your facility, they’ll feel confident in their choice to work with you
2. Increased visibility
When a lighter color applied to your facility’s floor, it naturally reflects more light and further boosts visibility at your site. When it is easier to see, the workers’ visual and mental strain is reduced, and so is the associated stress. According to the study by the Department of Design and Environmental Analysis at Cornell, sufficient lighting significantly reduces eyestrain, headaches, and blurred vision symptoms.
3. Faster inventory movement
Let’s be honest, smooth flooring without pesky cracks and potholes allows for faster movement of inventory from one location to another.
4. Increased employee morale
There is not much to say. Everyone enjoys working on a nice polished floor, if given a choice. In addition, a protective layer of a floor polish protects your employees from a dusty unpleasant environment. Another win!
5. Easier faster cleaning
You may not know but it is much harder to clean a bare floor than a polished floor with an automatic scrubber. The dirt and dust just move around and get stuck in all of the crevices and cracks. At an extremely fast speed. It makes cleaning quite daunting and much less efficient. Floor coating adds a protective layer that prevents dirt from sticking to the breaks in the floor.
Not-so-obvious Benefits of Floor Polishing
- Increased productivity
Yes, you read that right. Clean polished floors improve the working environment, increase the brightness, reduce dust in the air, and boost your workers’ morale, which in turn boosts their overall mental and physical state, and boosts productivity.
- Saved energy consumption
Since lighter colored polished floors significantly improve brightness in a warehouse or a factory, your facility can save on electric use for lighting.
- Ability to withstand much more damage
The special floor coating adds durability and a layer of protection to an industrial site flooring. Heavy equipment and heavy foot traffic may wear out and even damage flooring much faster if maintenance and coating are not done on a routine schedule.
Urethane Ultraviolet Floor Coating
What is Urethane UV-cured Floor Coating?
Urethane UV-cured floor coating is one of the best solutions for commercial, industrial, retail, and institutional floors that deal with everyday heavy equipment and foot traffic, oil and chemical spills, and acidic elements.
What does Urethane UV Floor Coating Do?
Urethane UV-cured floor coating protects industrial floors from everyday damage and hazardous spills. Special additives in the coating allow for extra strength against chemicals, gasoline, and other harmful components. With aluminum oxide aggregate, you can also increase the slip resistance of your facility’s floors.
How Can It Make Your Site Safer?
Urethane Ultraviolet floor coating contains technology that resists bacteria as soon as it comes in contact with the floor and prevents microbial growth before it even starts. As a result, your floors stay cleaner and safer for everyone working and visiting the facilities.
For the sites, where chemical or other spillages are more common or may cause severe damage, having urethane UV floor coating is essential in keeping the site safer. Its characteristics outperform other coatings for chemical resistance and durability.
