 Which Kind of Flooring Is Best for Your Busy Supermarket?

In a super­mar­ket there are two major, over­ar­ch­ing fac­tors to keep in mind as you look for the per­fect floor­ing solu­tion: style and function.

Style” doesn’t only refer to pick­ing trendy col­ors (although there’s noth­ing wrong with that), but also to con­sis­tent­ly pre­sent­ing your brand. You want patrons and vis­i­tors alike to quick­ly and eas­i­ly rec­og­nize your unique image.

Func­tion,” on the oth­er hand, is the abil­i­ty to work hard, meet­ing the demands of your envi­ron­ment with­out com­plaint. After all, floor­ing fail­ure can cause unhealthy, dan­ger­ous, and dis­rup­tive issues.

So, what is your floor­ing answer?

Super­mar­ket Flooring

What Kind of Floors Are in Supermarkets?

Epoxy is the most com­mon and best type of floor­ing for super­mar­kets. Here are some rea­sons epoxy floor­ing is the most pop­u­lar type of floor­ing in supermarkets:

  • They’re very durable and able to hold up against shop­ping carts, heavy foot traf­fic, clean­ing machin­ery, and oth­er heavy equipment.

  • They’re easy to clean and maintain.

  • They don’t allow mold and mildew to become a major problem.

  • They’re aes­thet­i­cal­ly pleas­ing, giv­ing a bet­ter shop­ping expe­ri­ence to your customers.

Epoxy Floor­ing Sys­tems — A Blend of Style and Function


Epoxy floor sys­tems are avail­able in a wide vari­ety of col­ors, and there are huge pos­si­bil­i­ties for cus­tomiza­tion thanks to the flake broad­casts that can be added. This cre­ates a classy, tex­tured finish.

From defin­ing dif­fer­ent depart­ments to cre­at­ing a stun­ning entrance area, epoxy sys­tems lit­er­al­ly have you covered.


Here are just a few of the func­tion­al ben­e­fits of an epoxy coating:

  • San­i­tary — Unlike the old floor tiles of yes­ter­year, epoxy doesn’t offer the crevices and cracks for mois­ture and con­t­a­m­i­nants to hide inside. Spills and dirt are kept right on the surface.
  • Low-main­te­nance — Thanks to that non-absorbent sur­face we just men­tioned, epoxy floors are very sim­ple to clean and main­tain. A basic mop­ping will bring the orig­i­nal shine right back.
  • Tough — Impact-resis­tance is a won­der­ful qual­i­ty to have, espe­cial­ly in those areas of your super­mar­ket where foot traf­fic and the move­ment of dol­lies, equip­ment, or carts is near­ly constant.
  • Easy cov­er­age — This sys­tem can cov­er con­crete, met­al, and even pre­vi­ous­ly coat­ed flooring.
  • Non-slip — We know that the floors in many depart­ments can get slick quick­ly, espe­cial­ly when there is rou­tine floor wash­ing, food prepa­ra­tion, and the rins­ing of containers/​dishes dur­ing dai­ly operations.
  • Sys­tem options — Under the umbrel­la of epoxy sys­tems,” there are numer­ous spe­cif­ic options that can be selected.
