Unsurpassed Flooring for Industrial Buildings

Just the word industrial alone tells us that the flooring needed is going to have to be special in one way or another, perhaps in many different ways. Take for example what kind of industrial building flooring is going to be required for a foundry. That flooring absolutely must be able to tolerate terrible heat, and in addition it will have to also be able to withstand chemicals. Imagine if you will that this industrial flooring system has to not only survive mechanical abuse, but also have to deal with dross, hot skim and slag! Now those are industrial rigors, and only the very strongest of flooring can withstand that. Its mechanical strength must be absolutely awesome, and its abrasion resistance has to be the paramount as well.

Industrial building flooring has met many other challenges such as that described above, and if there is anything that has been learned by those providing such flooring is that each and every instance is going to be different than the last. Take for example industrial building flooring for a bakery. Once more high heat is involved, but in addition to that since it is required to be kept ultra-clean because it is involved in making food; some additional needs come in to play.

Also, in a bakery there are sometimes some spills, so that in order to keep the bakers safe, one needs to think about their safety and render that flooring anti-slip. It’s not that the bakers are careless, but accidents do happen. And since oils and various kinds of grease are used in a bakery the non-slip flooring is but half the problem. The other problem is to be 100% sure that such things cannot ever get underneath that flooring. If we utilize tile, as an example, the tile is surrounded by grout in which germs and bacteria might flourish, and eventually the germs and bacteria are going to allow that tile to put out some very strong unpleasant odors. Worse yet, the tile are going to begin to lift because dirty water has seeped underneath. For industrial building flooring located in a bakery that spells disaster.

It is thanks to Silikal that there are answers to these problems for just about any kind of industrial building flooring needed. Silikal uses enhanced MMA in its formulary for flooring, which is totally different than the MMA used by its competitors. “Normal” MMA unfortunately allows pinholes to form, and nothing stops them from forming except the additive that was invented by Silikal thus enabling them to call it enhanced MMA. Without those infinitesimal pinholes the flooring is totally sealed, and will remain sealed.

Only Silikal flooring can be considered lifetime flooring. That means that its industrial building flooring will probably outlast the building it has been installed within. In addition, even though it is for industrial use, it can still be made to be eye appealing, and in that way workers can be made happier as they work in a pleasing environment.
