What is Industrial Flooring?

Industrial flooring is flooring tough enough to withstand chemicals, machinery, and other characteristics associated with industrial businesses. It’s found in factories, warehouses, refineries, utility plants, and other structures involved in heavy-duty operations.

Different types of industrial flooring

Concrete

Concrete is extremely durable and economical, which is why it’s the base for most industrial flooring systems. Combined with epoxy or polyurethane, it makes for a nearly indestructible floor along with functions like reducing contamination from mold or bacteria. Plus, concrete doesn’t have to be all boring, dull, and gray—options like staining and polishing add brightness and design options to the mix.

Epoxy

Epoxy flooring is also known as resinous or polymer flooring as it’s a two-part mixture of resin and hardener that generally goes over a concrete substrate, though it can be used with some other flooring materials. The chemicals react together, bond to the substrate, and form a hard plastic surface that is easy to clean, especially when paired with epoxy cove bases.

Urethane and Polyurethane

Although the terms urethane and polyurethane are often used interchangeably, the chemical makeup is different. Polyurethane is composed of multiple urethane units joined by a chemical reaction called polymerization.

Urethane flooring is seamless and durable, especially against chemical spills. It can be poured directly on top of concrete, and is thermal shock resistant. Polyurethane is a popular choice for industrial flooring because it’s scratch-resistant and waterproof, protecting the floor from moisture, bacteria, and temperature fluctuation. Polyurethane is used as a topcoat and can be combined with epoxy to create a floor that is virtually impenetrable.

Surface cleaning and preparation

No matter what flooring materials are chosen, thorough surface preparation and repairs are a requirement for creating a clean, smooth surface. This ensures a tight bond for strong coating adhesion, lasting durability, and warranty protection. During the entire process, the industrial flooring crews of Painters USA are diligent about details, from set-up until the work is completed to your satisfaction.

Functional coatings and markings

Did you know that the right industrial flooring contractor can help with regulatory compliance? Whether it’s OSHA workplace safety recommendations or USDA and FDA food safety regulations or third party audits within your supply chain, Painters USA can help you face inspections and audits with greater confidence.

Ask us about specialty coatings to reduce slip and fall hazards or resist mold and bacterial growth. We can paint floor markings to guide foot and vehicular traffic, communicate potential safety hazards, and other functions. Regulatory compliance also helps maintain the value of your industrial properties.

Painters USA will play our part in helping you make the grade, even under scrutiny by the most demanding inspectors and auditors.

Frequently asked questions about industrial flooring

How do industrial floors differ from commercial floors?

The primary difference is that industrial flooring is almost exclusively concerned with durability, functionality, and performance. Those traits also matter in commercial flooring, along with aesthetics and visual appeal, which leads to more flooring variety, like use of carpet and high-end materials like marble.

What are the most common flooring types in industrial buildings?

Concrete is far and away the most common industrial flooring material today because it is economical, very durable, and able to withstand constant pressure. Concrete floors may be suspended or on grade, and the surface can be polished, ground and sealed, or given an industrial coating like epoxy.

We do find some wood flooring installations that are still in service, as they are considered more comfortable, quieter, and warmer than concrete. We also see some steel flooring, especially galvanized steel grating used most often for slip-resistant stairs, work platforms, and walkways.

What are the most important considerations for evaluating industrial flooring options?

What matters a great deal is proper installation, surface prep, and finishing with the right coatings and treatments to reduce maintenance requirements and resist damage caused by traffic, corrosion, moisture, and other forces specific to the industrial setting.
