Commercial Polished Concrete Floors

Commercial Polished Concrete Floors

A client approached Concrete Polishing looking for commercial polished concrete floors at their property in Suffolk. The area was to be a car showroom to display high-end classic cars. The client’s main objectives were an easily maintainable floor, slip-resistant and resistant to spillages. And of course aesthetically pleasing. Polished concrete floors, therefore, met all the client’s objectives. This, therefore, is the client’s first choice for their flooring.

The clients chosen type of finish was the Exposed Aggregate Finish. This is where aggregate is exposed to the surface. Concrete Polishing was asked by the client to mechanically diamond polish the floor. A different contractor had laid the floor. Contractors began by heavily grinding the area, this is necessary to expose the aggregate. This therefore also eliminates any imperfections that may have occurred when placing the floor. Once contractors completed the heavy grinding process, the mechanical diamond polishing process can therefore start. Contractors complete several stages in this process, and they can reach a certain gloss level. Contractors can then start to apply a sealer to the area. This aids with slip resistance and stain resistance. The final stage of the polishing process.

Polished Concrete Floor Gloucestershire

Polished Concrete Floor Gloucestershire

Our client approached Concrete Polishing. They wanted a polished concrete floor at their wedding venue in Gloucestershire. The client was wanting to convert an out barn on their estate into a wedding reception or hospitality area. The overall concept was to keep the flooring style in line with the rustic feeling of the barn, therefore our Rustic Style Finish polished concrete floor was the best option. Due to the venue hosting parties, our client was looking for a flooring option that was low maintenance. Slip resistant and stain resistant. A polished concrete floor furfilled all of these points.

The existing concrete floor was laid by a different company. Contractors had finished the floor to a substandard power float. Therefore in places the floor was uneven. Contractors began by completing a series of lighter grinding steps. This therefore highlighted the natural movement of the power trowel marks and creating a rustic style finish. For contractors to achieve a rustic style polished concrete floor, it is unnecessary for heavy grinding. Therefore no aggregate is exposed. The final stage that contractors complete after the grinding steps is applying a concrete sealer. Contractors then used the concrete sealer, and as a result, this, therefore, aids with protection from spillages and slip resistance. All main objectives that our client had.

Commercial Polished Concrete

Commercial Polished Concrete 

Why “real” Polished Concrete is the way forward for your flooring option.  

Is “real” polished concrete flooring the way forward for commercial flooring? We say yes, and this is why.

It has always been so that in commercial flooring spaces such as retail, restaurants, cafés and office spaces, overlays and micro cement have always been the preferred choice. Both coatings when applied to an existing surface including tiles or wood. It imitates actual concrete.

As time has progressed it appears Architects and Designers are becoming more familiar with the concept of “real” polished concrete. Than opposed to overlays and micro cement. They are ever increasingly looking st cost-effective and “green” flooring options. These therefore, are just 2 of the reasons why a commercial polished concrete floor is the way forward when choosing your commercial flooring.

Overlays and Micro Cement

We will always find many commercial premises where an overlay or micro cement is more suited. Where access is minimal for example. This type of concrete finish will always hold its own within the flooring industry. However, it is soon becoming apparent that “real” polished concrete will be here for the duration of time.

When considering the durability of a concrete floor, it is a commercial polished concrete floor that contractors will have refined using a mechanical diamond process that will undoubtedly stand the test of time.

Using, Husqvarna HIPERFLOOR® it can be guaranteed that the functionality of the floor and aesthetics are not compromised over long periods of time. The contractor cannot guarantee functionality with other flooring options.

Many larger outfits are now looking to polished concrete for a commercial flooring option. These include car showrooms, office space, restaurants and cafes. They are finding that polished concrete is economically the wisest choice, is resistant to wear and spillages. Environmentally friendly. And therefore easily maintained at a low cost, just to name a few benefits. All important contributing factors when deciding on a flooring option.
