they protect the concrete from wear, chemical corrosion and chemical deterioration, combined with ease of cleaning and low maintenance. With no cracks or angled corners, these floorcoverings provide the ultimate in hygienic flooring. Mostly, these floors are anti-slip, fire-resistant, anti-bacterial, and can be provided with dust-repelling treatments and antistatic properties – making them ideally suitable for use in laboratories, hospitals or any-where that sensitive electronic equipment is being used, or where a static-free environment is imperative.Apart from producing a clean working environment and a non-slip surface, these floors increase the light reflectivity and brighten the work area, which saves electricity and enables work efficiencies to be maximised.
These floors often need to be resistant to oils and grease, non-skid and slip-resistant and are regularly called upon to solve specific problems such as those found in wet and cold room applications. This means that many other types of flooring material can fall under the industrial banner, depending on the application.
