Perhaps you’re thinking there’s no need for a specific finish on your warehouse floor because you don’t have a preference for looks or style. However, warehouse floor finishes have much more to do with operations and functions than with visual appeal. Without the appropriate finish, warehouse floors can accumulate dust and a safety hazard of what is known as “concrete dusting.” Most often, this accumulated layer of dust simply brings about aesthetic concerns, making warehouses and it’s items look dirty and unclean. However, concrete dusting can also damage warehoused goods and manufacturing equipment. In worst cases, concrete dusting can become a liability for companies if employees were to inhale and acquire health issues.

The best way to prevent concrete dusting and the hazards it brings is to have T.W. Hicks, Inc. install seal floors with epoxy coatings. The most common areas for epoxy floor finishes in warehouses are areas that invite heavy traffic such as walkways as well as wet areas and dispatch areas that have warehouse electronics and machinery. Epoxy floor coatings are designed to withstand the wear-and-tear of heavy traffic in addition to providing slip resistance and the prevention of concrete dusting. Depending on how often the facility will be cleaned, the type of work that takes place within the warehouse and how much aesthetics actually matter, our warehouse flooring professionals can help you pick out the correct floor finish for your warehouse!
