High-Traffic Flooring Solutions for New York

Maintaining commercial spaces brings many challenges, but not every flooring material is up to those challenges. Choosing a floor that can stand up to high foot traffic, equipment traffic, and heavy loads without suffering noticeable wear and tear can keep your warehouse at its best. Blackrock Industrial uses durable concrete and versatile epoxy in warehouses and commercial spaces for long-lasting, highly functional flooring solutions.

Understanding Your Flooring Needs

When choosing a new floor for your warehouse, you need to consider all factors. Your floor needs to be not only durable but also designed to meet your facility’s needs. For example, heavy manufacturing environments will need to have strong floors that can withstand heavy loads and large machinery. Warehouses that work with chemicals, medical materials, or perishable items such as food will need flooring that can tolerate exposure to potentially corrosive materials and extreme temperatures.

Flooring also needs to be safe for the workers who use it to help reduce the risk of workplace accidents. Slip resistance should be a priority as should ergonomic flooring for improved shock absorption.

Ideally, your warehouse floor should be designed to meet your facility’s needs in a way that enhances and promotes a productive, safe, and comfortable environment. Blackrock Industrial offers flooring solutions that ensure safety, efficiency, longevity, and efficacy in all aspects.

Warehouse Flooring Options

Epoxy Flooring

Epoxy flooring is a durable resinous floor coating that protects the underlying floor from damage due to heavy traffic, chemical exposure, thermal shock, and more. Installation time is comparatively minimal, and the results can last for many years. Its smooth, seamless surface protects against moisture intrusion and reduces the risk of mold and mildew. Naturally antimicrobial, epoxy can help keep your facility cleaner and healthier, too. Epoxy can even be fully customized with a variety of colors, additives, and other features to designate work zones, indicate traffic patterns, and enhance the look of your facility.

Concrete Flooring

Traditional concrete flooring works well in warehouse environments. It’s strong, versatile, durable, and cost-effective. While strong enough to support the heaviest machinery, concrete is also attractive and easy to customize with stains and other features to better serve your needs.

Polished Concrete Flooring

Polishing concrete enhances its strength even more thanks to a process that involves mechanical grinding and polishing. The cured and polished concrete is then sealed to make it impervious to spills and stains and give it a high-shine finish that improves visibility and safety.

Other Considerations for Warehouse Flooring

  • Budget: Consider the costs of not just installation but also long-term maintenance.
  • Safety: Floors must be slip-resistant and safe for those who use the warehouse.
  • Needs: The floor should be designed for the type of traffic and materials used in the warehouse.
  • Downtime: Warehouses are busy places. Installations should fit well within your timeframe for the project.
  • Environment: Low/no VOC products, recyclability, and other elements should be consistent with your organization’s goals.
