We offer two floor systems designed with Fire Houses in mind but are applicable for any floor that gets high tonnage vehicle traffic weighing up to 60 tons. They're also perfect for industrial maintenance and machine shop floors. These types of applications often have very wet or slippery floor environments, our epoxy coating and interlocking tiles are designed with that in mind and are extra nonskid. These floors are the best ways we know to do these types of heavy wear applications for longterm durability and safety. Below we go through the six steps of doing this type of floor with an epoxy system. This requires 3-4 days of installation and another couple of days to let the final coating fully harden. The Interlocking tiles can usually be installed in one day with the floor being put back into service immediately. The epoxy system is designed for 10-15 yrs of heavy duty service while the tiles should last 20-30 plus years.
While installation of the epoxy system usually requires extensive cleaning and floor prepping installation of the tiles is to simply sweep floor clean, knock the tiles together like jigsaw puzzle pieces with a rubber mallet, cut with any type of circular or jig saw to fit against walls or around columns. Many times installation can be accomplished while maintaining the facility in full service!
STEP 1-Clean floor of all dirt and oil stains, apply etching solution, rinse thoroughly and let dry. For heavily soiled or poorly maintained floors grinding is recommended for best results. Repair any cracks or spalled concrete with one of our repair kits. STEP 2 - apply primer coat and let dry.
STEP 3 - Apply thin build Ultra Epoxy and cover with 00 sand. STEP 4 - When dry remove excess sand by brushing and vacuuming. Floor should resemble a large piece of sandpaper.
STEP 5 - Apply high build extra thick Ultra Epoxy. Let Dry. STEP 6 - Apply finish with a coat of Ultra Wear Urethane Epoxy Clear Topcoat
