Why it is important that Automotive facilities have epoxy and urethane flooring
Vehicles can put a lot of wear and tear on the floor. Cars, trucks, motorcycles, and more often find their way into auto showrooms, dealerships, garages, body shops, mechanic shops, exposition centers, malls, and more. While the right floor will enhance the appearance of any car or truck, it also needs to be strong and durable enough to withstand the potential stress and chemical exposure associated with vehicle traffic. Epoxy and urethane flooring systems make it easy to do both.
Built-in Safety Features
Any floor that sees vehicular traffic is going to take a beating even under the best of circumstances. Automotive facilities need a surface that is durable, hard-wearing, and cost-effective. Over time, concrete can deteriorate, crack, and erode, which is why so many in the auto industry choose epoxy and urethane flooring.
Epoxy and urethane are concrete coatings, which are naturally slip resistant, and we can incorporate certain additives to increase their anti-slip properties. Epoxy can also have antimicrobial features, ensuring a cleaner, healthier space for employees and customers alike. Perhaps most importantly, epoxy is strong and requires minimal maintenance, and it can last years, making it cost-effective, too.
Some floors require frequent upkeep and intense cleaning procedures but not epoxy. At Blackrock Industrial, we offer a variety of brilliant epoxy and urethane flooring systems that will retain their shine year after year with no need for waxing, buffing, or polishing. Our floors are bright, shiny, and attractive, making them the perfect backdrop for any vehicle.
To keep your floor looking fantastic, simply sweep or dust mop regularly and damp mop as needed. Epoxy resists stains, scratching, etching, and other damage commonly associated with vehicle traffic and offers a lustrous high-gloss seamless finish.
Custom Colors, Custom Finishes
Epoxy and urethane come in a rainbow of color options, and we take steps to ensure the colors won’t fade or the shine dim over time. We can even incorporate UV protection in areas exposed to the sun. You can design your floor with your brand in mind, combining brilliant colors, personalized designs, logos, and traffic striping as needed to create a showroom sure to attract attention.
Convenience and Simplicity
When you’re in the automotive industry, you can’t afford a lot of downtime, and with epoxy, it won’t be a problem. We can install your new flooring system quickly and easily over your existing flooring whether that’s concrete, tile, terrazzo, or something else entirely. We can apply it over new or existing floors and retrofit as needed. The coating sets quickly and is ready for use before you know it.
Epoxy and urethane flooring systems are versatile, cost-effective, and attractive systems that can transform old, worn floors into bright, beautiful flooring.
Durability and Longevity
Decorative flooring systems are just that: decorative. Epoxy flooring systems are strong and durable, protecting the underlying floor and keeping your space safe and attractive. Epoxy can withstand regular vehicle traffic without eroding or cracking. It can even withstand impacts from dropped tools, the pressure of heavy machinery, and chemical spills from motor oil, fuel, transmission fluid, bleach, cleaning solutions, water, mold and mildew, and road salt and other deicing agents.
