Agricultural-Concrete-Polishing

Agricultural facilities have unique challenges with concrete surfaces subject to heavy loads, silage and livestock. Concrete Polishing can refine and improve concrete, providing a safer and more hygienic surface. Floors can be tailored to meet the specific needs of agricultural buildings, such as grain stores and machine storage sheds. Improving concrete helps to protect livestock, machinery and workers, reducing injury rates and maintenance costs.

A concrete floor that has been hardened and polished will have an extremely long-life expectancy compared to other flooring types. Epoxy for example has a short life span of just 1 to 5 years in hard conditions. It can peel and split, creating a breeding ground for dirt disease and bacteria. A polished or refined concrete floor can last for the lifetime of the building, with proper maintenance.

Heavy use areas, such as barns, parlours and yards, can be refined while retaining a textured surface. This is a major factor in helping to reduce environmental lameness. A poorly laid or maintained concrete surface can contribute to incidences of sole ulcer and white-line disease in dairy herds, as well as posing risk to workers and machinery. Eliminating poor quality concrete protects farms against future problems.

Some of the major benefits of polished concrete are:

  • Low cost per m²
  • Dust proof
  • Long-life surface
  • Durable
  • Improved grip
  • Reduce chance of injury

Yard Repairs and Improvements

Agricultural concrete is often subject to harsh conditions which can degrade the surface, leaving it cracked and pitted. Further pressure exerted on the concrete serves to further this degradation. Damaged concrete is also susceptible to freeze/thaw damage. This presents an unacceptable risk to herds and can increase incidence of disease and lameness.

Silage damage on feeding areas will leave concrete heavily pitted and degraded. We can restore feeding areas by grinding the top of the concrete, leaving a surface smooth which retains enough texture to grip feed and silage properly.

The typical solution for livestock yards is to cut grooves into concrete. This will usually only last for six months. Once the edge of the grove has won down, livestock will begin to slip again. As well as the clear risk of lameness or injury, most farmers will experience reduced herd flow as they are unwilling to walk over the surface. By grinding away the surface of yards we can create a flat surface, while retaining the texture required for grip.

  • Help protect livestock and workers
  • Reduce maintenance and clean-up time
  • Slip resistant
  • Suitable base for protective mats

New Concrete Floors for Agricultural Buildings

Whether facilities are being introduced, replaced or expanded, flooring is amongst the most important factors to consider. Investing in a polished concrete floor can increase the functionality and usability of agricultural buildings. With modern techniques, floors can be installed rapidly, creating a flat, high-strength, hygienic surface ideal for produce, cereal and grain storage. Polished concrete is a flooring option for any storage or processing facility where hygiene is a concern.

Polished concrete is also the best flooring for use with underfloor heating. The high thermal mass, and lack of barrier layers, efficiently disperse the heat. This is ideal for buildings which need to remain within a constant temperature range.

  • 1000 + m² per day in large areas
  • Low cost per m²
  • Slip Resistant
  • Easy to clear
