Are you struggling to decide which concrete floor finish will work best for your superstore? Don’t panic! We understand that making the final decision is an important one and can be a little overwhelming, especially if you’re new to the concrete industry. This is why our concrete experts have put together this quick guide to the benefits of each finish available at Nationwide Concreting Ltd, the UK’s leading concrete flooring contractors.
If your superstore floor needs a rough surface texture that reduces the risk of slips, perhaps for an area with light traffic that often gets wet, like an outdoor garden centre, then a brush concrete floor finish is for you. Created using a broom-like device to imprint grooves in the surface of the concrete, which can be of various sizes depending on your needs, brush flooring helps improve safety for both you and your staff as well as providing an aesthetically pleasing look.
Tamped concrete flooring provides a much more slip resistant surface than a brush finish as it is made using a special tamping beam which creates much larger and more defined grooves. When done professionally, a tamped concrete floor finish also provides exceptional drainage as the parallel lines allow water to run off surfaces, avoiding potentially hazardous pools of water. A tamped concrete floor finish is a great option for areas of a superstore with heavy foot and machinery traffic, such as delivery areas, outdoor walkways and car parks.
Named after the machine used to create it, a power floated concrete finish is a popular choice for shop floors. Not only is it an attractive option thanks to its highly polished surface, but it is incredibly hard wearing so is able to cope with high levels of foot and trolley traffic without being worn or damaged. What’s more, its polished surface is waterproof, so any accidents and spills won’t affect it, and is also simple and easy to maintain.
Choosing a laser screed concrete floor finish ensures you get superior finishing results on your superstore floor much quicker than opting for traditional, manual finishes, great for projects on a tight schedule.
