The Most Effective Flooring for Any Automotive Facility
NASCAR has long been one of the most popular spectator sports in the U.S. Founded in the late 1940s, the National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing attracts visitors from around the country and viewers from around the world. As exciting as the stock car races can be, however, there’s one element that’s easy to overlook: flooring.
Epoxy and Urethane Flooring
The flooring might be frequently overlooked, but it can make or break your automotive business, which is why we recommend epoxy and urethane flooring for these facilities. Automotive facilities require flooring that is specially designed to withstand the severe conditions of heavy vehicle traffic, chemical exposure and wear and tear. When it comes to the flooring requirements of places such as repair facilities, service centers, auto body shops, mechanic shops, commercial garages, dealerships and automobile showrooms, there is little room for error. You need strong, durable flooring that can handle anything you throw at it. You also need flooring that meets the aesthetic requirements of your facility.
First impressions count, especially in showrooms. A bright, attractive floor will make a great first impression on new and returning customers while a clean, well-maintained shop floor can boost the confidence in a mechanic’s shop or garage. Urethane and epoxy flooring systems are easy to customize with color chips, quartz aggregate, or marbleized or metallic finishes. They can transform a dull, plain concrete floor into a shiny, beautiful backdrop for any vehicle. Lines, corporate logos, reflective additives and signage can also be incorporated into the system.
Flooring for automotive facilities also needs to be strong and durable. Both urethane and epoxy flooring systems are designed to withstand the harshest conditions. The strong seal they form helps the floor withstand all the physical and chemical assaults that occur in automotive environments. Epoxy and urethane easily repel oil, transmission fluid, coolants, grease, brake fluid and battery acid for easy clean-up. A slip-resistant finish can be included, which is especially beneficial when oil and grease are involved. The impact-resistance can prevent gouges and dents from falling tools or other damage. On the other hand, bare concrete tends to abrade over time and can absorb spills and fluid leakage.
Service and Maintenance
The automotive service and sales industry put some pretty high demands on their flooring. That means you need a flooring system that can withstand those demands without requiring intensive cleaning or maintenance. Epoxy and urethane flooring systems are flexible and easy to clean. They should be swept daily with periodic deep cleaning as well. While the system might need occasional recoating, the underlying flooring will remain sealed, secure and stable.
