Electro-static discharge (ESD) can pose a threat to sensitive electronic equipment, and in environments that handle volatile gases, powders, liquids or other substances it can even be a potentially dangerous ignition source. This charge can quickly build up within a floor when subjected to regular traffic from people and wheeled equipment.
Flowcrete Australia's chemical resistant coatings can maintain a seamless, high quality finish for an extended period of time despite contact with even the most caustic of solvents, acids and alkalis. Specific sectors can even specify floors tailored to meet the common chemicals used in that industry, for example aircraft hangars can install a surface that won’t be damaged by aviation hydraulic fluid.
Choosing a high performance floor doesn’t mean sacrificing aesthetics for functionality. Flowcrete’s decorative flooring systems combine contemporary style with world-class quality to provide seamless surfaces that can maintain a visual impact despite intense working conditions.
Flowcrete Australia is committed to providing environmentally friendly flooring solutions that have been sustainably sourced, manufactured and distributed. This includes incorporating recycled material into the floors, as well as limiting or completely removing toxic substances such as volatile organic compounds.
The practicalities of many types of buildings or of some construction projects will mean that the floor is going to have to be installed at temperatures either approaching or below freezing point. This is often the case in large warehouses, cold storage rooms or locations exposed to the elements like car parks, where it is either not desirable of even possible to raise the temperature of the site.
