How Epoxy Floor Systems Help Protect You and Your Staff
At Kaloutas, safety is always top of mind for us, and we know this goes for our many clients as well. Without a strong commitment to safety, you simply can’t achieve the highest levels of success — there are no shortcuts. Knowing this, all of our services aim to maintain or enhance a facility’s safety protocols, and we prioritize safety on the job through rigorous training and jobsite hazard analysis. Our industrial flooring services are a prime example of adherence to safety, providing floors with powerful protection from moisture, chemicals, bacteria, electrostatic charges, and more, all while getting your people and equipment from point A to B without a hitch. Let’s go over how our epoxy floor coating system installations help protect your workplace and your staff.
Benefits of Epoxy Flooring
Reduce the Risk of Slips, Trips, and Falls
Slips, trips, and falls are common causes of injury in any industrial setting, and poor floor conditions are often to blame. While no amount of maintenance or resurfacing can eliminate this risk entirely, quality industrial floor coatings can provide significant traction via anti-slip aggregate additives and other slip-resistant properties. Not only that — by increasing the durability of your floors, you’ll prevent fractures, pits, and unevenness, providing a level surface for everyone to walk upon.
Industrial and commercial facilities alike must adhere to strict health and sanitation standards, especially those in the business of food production, health care, education, and human services. If your floors aren’t regularly cleaned or properly sealed, bacteria and other contaminants from both outside and inside your building can move across your floors and put your people in harm’s way. This is why Kaloutas offers antimicrobial epoxy industrial flooring systems — these specialized coatings prevent these harmful actors from spreading inside your facility. Plus, these flooring solutions are easy to wash, sanitize, and sterilize on a regular basis.
Facilitate Maintenance and Repairs
One of the most potent long-term benefits of our epoxy floor systems is how easy they are to maintain. For one thing, epoxy floors are highly durable, able to withstand industrial traffic, high foot traffic, and heavy equipment for a long time. With untreated floors, you may need to invest in repairs frequently, causing interruptions and harming your bottom line. Epoxy floor systems reduce the frequency and severity of these repairs, saving you time and money. On top of that, the smooth, glossy, water-resistant topcoat facilitates all cleaning tasks such as sweeping and wet mopping. Ultimately, you’ll be able to divert resources previously used for floor maintenance to other, more important tasks, increasing efficiency and safety.
Increase Interior Visibility
Making sure everyone inside your facility can clearly see where they’re going and what they’re doing is essential to their ongoing safety. Our flooring systems help in this regard, too. Epoxy coatings are highly visible thanks to its gloss and various color options — compare this to dull, worn down, unprotected floors, and the difference is stunning. As an added bonus, this boost in interior brightness can also help your bottom line by reducing your energy bills.
Establishing a Safer Foundation
In many ways, stellar workplace safety starts with your floors. If your floors are falling apart or costing you more than they should be, call on our concrete resurfacing and repair services.
