Industrial Flooring Ideas


It’s always a challenge to find the right flooring for commercial or industrial applications. In residential industrial concrete flooring ottawa custom applications, the requirements are modest and the floors don’t endure much wear and tear. The foot traffic is moderate, the maintenance and care is usually consistent, and the floor isn’t exposed to abuse.

The conditions are drastically different in commercial and industrial applications. At Custom Concrete Floors, we’re often asked which kind of flooring is ideal for industrial applications and our answer is almost always concrete. Here are some suggestions that would help.

Coated Concrete Floors

Our first suggestion is always coated concrete floors, especially if you’re on a budget and need the surface ready quickly. There are several different kinds of coating available in the market. For industrial applications, we believe that polyurethane coatings are the best. This coating will withstand chemical and oil spills, high foot traffic, and vehicular movement easily. Polyurethane coatings will also last for about 5 to 8 years.

However, this coating is a little expensive. A more affordable alternative is epoxy coating. It’s easier to apply and will offer some level of protection against chemical and oil spills. It’s very affordable and relatively easy to apply. Epoxy coatings will also last for about 3 to 5 years.

Polished Concrete

Polished concrete is one of the most common floors found in industrial properties. In fact, polished concrete was popular in such properties well before it became chic to install in residential applications. This is an excellent industrial flooring option. The polishing process ensures that the surface isn’t very porous. The densifiers applied during the polishing process harden the surface of the concrete to make it more resilient.

Polished concrete is highly resistant to stains caused by oils and chemical spills. It’s also very easy to maintain as it requires just an occasional wet mop. The surface can have a matt/high gloss finish, depending on your requirements; it can also handle considerable amount of foot traffic.

Polished concrete floors will last for a very long time and won’t need to be polished for a number of years, based on your use. These two flooring options are ideal for industrial applications. They look attractive, are low-maintenance, and resilient.
