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.

Industrial Polished Concrete Floors

Industrial Polished Concrete Floors

A factory was looking for Industrial polished concrete floors at their premises in Newcastle upon Tyne, North East. The current floor was in need of full restoration to improve the overall functionality of the floor. The client, therefore, felt that industrial polished concrete floors were the best option for them, due to them being dustproof, durable and easy to clean, minimal lifetime costs, and non-slippery. These just to name a few as to why polished concrete was the most suitable choice.

The floor had been laid for a considerable amount of time. Continuous forklift traffic was covering the area every day. Over time the floor had cracked, together with discolouration, and had become quite dusty. Therefore, all factors needed to be rectified.

Contractors began with a light grind. Grinding, therefore, removed any residue and painted on the surface. Contractors then moved onto a heavy grind. Grinding would resolve any imperfections within the surface. A clean, level, smooth surface was created by contractors. Contractors could then start to mechanically diamond polish the floor. In addition, cracks were dug out, cleaned and then filled with coloured semi-rigid polyurea by contractors. To finish, contractors also applied a concrete sealer. Contractors carried out sections of the floor at a time. Therefore, work could still take place within the factory as usual. All work carried out by contractors was within a controlled environment.

A client approached Concrete Polishing, they were in the first stages of expanding their warehouse.  An industrial polished concrete in Shropshire floor met all our client’s needs, this, therefore, was their first choice. The benefits of an industrial polished concrete floor would be a long-lasting, high strength and durable surface. Resistant to abrasion, and therefore good for high traffic areas. Floor flatness, so also ideal for forklifts. All needs of our clients.

Our client was wanting Concrete Polishing to install, finish and mechanically diamond polish the new floor. The type of finish was the grey industrial finish, this is the most popular in an industrial environment. The surface is power trowelled, therefore, no aggregate is exposed.

After the floor had been laid and finished to a power trowelled standard, 28 days was allowed. Contractors could, therefore, then begin to mechanically diamond polish the new floor.  In the light of our client not wanting aggregate shown, a series of lighter grinding stages were necessary. Therefore, highlighting the natural power trowel pattern, what our client wanted.  Contractors then applied the concrete sealer to the floor. This helps with slip resistance and stain resistance.
