Back Why concrete is ideal for warehouse flooring

Warehouse flooring needs to be durable, easy to maintain, with great resistance to heavy loads. We explore why this makes concrete the ideal choice.

Long-lasting option

With proper maintenance, a sealed, power floated concrete floor can stay strong and looking fantastic for upwards of 50 years, making it a better investment than some of the popular alternatives. By comparison, epoxy resin (another popular choice for warehouse flooring) has a lifespan of just 5-10 years.

Easy to maintain

When you work in a busy warehouse, you want your flooring to be easy to look after. Compared to some of the alternatives, concrete floors are simple to maintain properly. There are certain things to consider when caring for concrete flooring and we’re more than happy to offer advice on the steps you should take to keep your floors looking great.

As with any flooring, concrete should be cleaned regularly with suitable cleaning agents. It’s always best to remove debris before it causes damage, and to clean up things like spillages, oils and grease immediately. It’s especially important to make sure the cleaning agents you use are suitable for concrete floors. Any type of acid or alkali cleaning agent will damage your floors over time.

Strong and durable

Warehouse floors experience a lot of wear and tear, as they are filled with heavy items, people and machinery such as forklifts. Because of this, you want flooring that can stand up to heavy loads and be resistant to wear. Concrete flooring boasts almost unrivalled strength that can withstand large load weights.

A power float concrete finish will create an attractive, high-shine look that can be easily maintained by waxing a couple of times a year. It will also be resistant to cracking and perfectly smooth, meaning it will be really easy to keep clean.
