Solutions for Power Floated Concrete Floors
Power floated concrete is a concrete finish achieved using a machine designed to smooth, and to a certain extent, level a newly laid concrete floor once all bleed water has evaporated. When carried out correctly, power floated concrete produces a smooth, very dense and hard-wearing surface finish, suitable for highly trafficked areas.
Industrial Warehouses and Factories: Power-floated concrete floors are popular in industrial settings due to their durability and resistance to heavy traffic, abrasion, and impact.
Commercial Spaces: Power-floated floors provide a clean and polished look, making them suitable for retail environments.
Transportation: Power-floated concrete is used in areas with high foot traffic, such as terminals and concourses.
Distribution Centres: Power-floated floors can withstand the movement of pallet jacks, forklifts, and heavy loads typical in distribution environments.
Manufacturing: Power-floated concrete is used in manufacturing plants where smooth floors contribute to a clean and efficient work environment.
Education: Power-floated concrete floors are employed in corridors, cafeterias, and other high-traffic areas in educational facilities.
Public Spaces: Power-floated concrete can be used in outdoor areas where a durable, low-maintenance surface is required.
- Smooth and polished surface - One of the benefits of power floated concrete is its aesthetic finish. Power floating results in a smooth and polished surface which gives the floor an attractive shine.
- Increased durability - Power floated concrete bears the weight of heavy machinery such as forklifts extremely effectively, making it the perfect choice for industrial flooring.
- Resistant to cracking - Power floating essentially recompacts the concrete, and plastic-shrinkage cracking, potentially caused by the concrete drying too quickly, is closed together again.
- Dust-free - A power float finish creates a dense surface where the surface is heavily compacted, eliminating the dust that is often a problem with unfinished concrete floors.
