Durable Floor Measuring Lines in Colchester, CT

If you are at all famil­iar with indus­tri­al paint­ing and floor­ing, you prob­a­bly have heard of and seen (maybe even use!) safe­ty line strip­ing. These stripes work much in the same way that the lanes on our roads do, des­ig­nat­ing where and how traf­fic should flow for opti­mal, safe trav­el. In the case of your ware­house or pro­duc­tion facil­i­ty, these lanes chan­nel every­thing from pedes­tri­ans to forklifts.

In some cas­es, floor­ing lines are used for oth­er pur­pos­es as well. For exam­ple, we recent­ly were approached by a com­pa­ny in Colch­ester, CT, that man­u­fac­tures safe­ty net­ting. They use lines on their floor to assist with accu­rate­ly mea­sur­ing their prod­ucts. The issue was that pass­ing fork­lifts were break­ing down these lines and, as you can imag­ine, this didn’t help their pro­duc­tion efficiency.

Cor­rect­ing Floor Mois­ture Issues and Installing the Lines

Upon a care­ful inspec­tion and fur­ther test­ing, we dis­cov­ered that one major under­ly­ing prob­lem was the fact that the mois­ture lev­els in the slab were very high, dam­ag­ing the bond that their orig­i­nal lines had with the floor. This issue is sim­i­lar to get­ting the adhe­sive wet on the back of a stick­er; it just won’t stay put.

We removed the exist­ing coat­ings and re-coat­ed the entire floor with a sys­tem from FloRock, a man­u­fac­tur­er of epoxy and ure­thane sys­tems based out of Chica­go. In addi­tion, we installed five cus­tom-made, 100’ mea­sur­ing lines from Agio Imag­ing after the floor was com­plete. As an icing on this giant cake, we laid down a top-coat of Polyas­par­tic, 100% solids, ultra-fast cure coat­ing to make those mea­sur­ing lines not have to wor­ry about fork­lifts for a long, long time.

If you know the tech­ni­cal jar­gon, then you know that this job was done well, and care­ful­ly designed to last. If some of the terms were new to you, just know that this is now a durable, pro­tect­ed, and mois­ture-free floor.

Our Goal Is to Nev­er Let Our Work Get in the Way of Yours!

We fin­ished this project over two week­ends, and were able to fin­ish the first part of our work with­out shut­ting down plant oper­a­tions. And, as an added con­fir­ma­tion that all went well, we have been asked back to com­plete the remain­der of the build­ing, and anoth­er entire floor else­where as well!
