If you are in the process of building commercial premises, or you wish to carry out a major revamp of your factory or warehouse, there are quite a few commercial flooring materials to choose from. Of course, everything depends on the nature of your business as to the most suitable flooring material and in order to help with your choice, here are some of the popular commercial flooring materials that are installed in factories and warehouses in Australia today.
- Epoxy Resin – By far the most popular flooring for commercial premises, epoxy flooring in Adelaide is both affordable and very durable. The make-up of the epoxy coating can be tailored to suit your industry and if you make contact with a leading commercial flooring contractor, they would be happy to pay you a visit and discuss the many options. Epoxy resin is watertight and is chemical-resistant and with non-slip surfaces, this makes for ideal flooring for factories and warehouses.
- Coloured Concrete – Concrete comes in any colour and can be finished in many styles and polished concrete is popular in showrooms and shopping malls. The ideal scenario is to coat the concrete floor with epoxy resin, as this adds durability and protection, plus it has a non-slip surface, even when wet.
- Luxury Vinyl – Luxury vinyl tiles are ideal for a high-end showroom or retail outlet, as vinyl is water-proof, scuff-proof and is resistant to chemicals. Finishes include timber, stone and slate designs, which are achieved by applying a thin hi-res digital image under the final layer of protective coating.
- Carpet – Industrial carpet tiles are often used for office areas that adjoin the factory or warehouse and this flooring is very durable and when a stain occurs, you simply change the affected tiles. Contract carpeting is not only affordable, it can be laid on any substrate and is very appealing.
- Engineered Timber – This looks and feels like solid timber, yet it is actually a composite made from a core of compressed sawdust with a 3mm veneer of real timber on the outside. One example of effective use of engineered timber floor would be the waiting area in a trye shop, where the shop floor is epoxy resin and the timber floor butts up to the workshop floor, adding a touch of character to the environment.
The best way to discover the best flooring for your commercial premises is to contact an established commercial floor contractor and ask for their professional opinion.
