Attractive, Durable and Safe Flooring for Your Retail Establishment

The floor takes the brunt of any retail establishment’s day-to-day activities, and it occupies a substantial amount of visual real estate. Choosing the right flooring material won’t necessarily make or break your boutique or grocery, but it can make a big difference in both the look and feel of your establishment. At Blackrock Industrial, we can help you find the right flooring for your business needs.

Considerations for Retail Flooring Solutions

Every business has unique concerns, clientele, and commodities. However, that doesn’t mean they don’t have similar underlying needs when it comes to their flooring. Whether your retail business is large or small with a few or a lot of customers, you need a floor that is attractive, durable and safe. It should be comfortable for employees and customers and easy to maintain. While many types of flooring are currently available for retail businesses, two stand out from the rest: epoxy and concrete flooring.

Epoxy Flooring

Epoxy flooring for retail environments is designed for maximum slip-resistance, appealing aesthetics, and easy maintenance. Epoxy flooring is made using a combination of resin and hardener. When the resin and hardener are mixed, they react chemically to create a strong bond with many base layers. They are durable and popular in high-traffic environments, such as:
• Industrial areas
• Hospitals
• Supermarkets
• Big box store
• Warehouse store
The epoxy can be applied directly to a treated concrete slab, and it protects the underlying floor from wear, tear, chemical spills, abrasions, foot traffic, and other damage. It’s versatile, attractive and cost-effective, and it’s a sanitary solution that is easy to clean and maintain. Epoxy flooring only needs a daily sweeping and periodic deep cleaning to look its best.

Concrete Flooring

Few surfaces can withstand the kind of traffic that concrete can. While you might be more familiar with concrete in parking garages and facilities, concrete flooring works for indoor flooring, too. Concrete is rugged, durable, easy to clean and water-resistant when properly sealed. Just as important, it’s a versatile flooring material that can be finished with a variety of aggregates, colors, and stains and textured, buffed or finished with epoxy for the perfect look.

Finding the Right Flooring Solution for your Retail Store

Shopping centers have a lot of foot traffic, and floors can take a beating. Adverse weather, spills, and mishaps can lead to slippery conditions. You cannot shut your store down for lengthy periods to perform complex maintenance, and you likely want a floor that looks great week after week, month after month and year after year with little upkeep required. This is where concrete and epoxy flooring for retail environments come into play. These flooring solutions are beautiful, durable, slip-resistant and designed to last a lifetime.
