Why choose heavy-duty floor coatings for high traffic areas?


Industrial and commercial floors need to be able to take a beating. Floors warehouses, workshops and factories are subject to all kinds of abuse, including daily exposure to heavy trolleys, forklifts, heavy vehicles, or machinery. Without some form of heavy-duty floor coating, the surface will become cracked or damaged. Even concrete alone is not enough for such high traffic areas. Choosing the type of floor coating that is appropriate for your needs, depends on the space and the type of traffic it receives.
