The A-Z of Flooring – ‘D’ is for Durability!

When discussing the key performance requirements of resin flooring systems with architects, engineers and end-users, one of the most common features discussed is the durability of a flooring system.

The definition of durability “is the ability to withstand wear, pressure or damage”, however this can be interpreted in a variety of ways dependant on your project environment.

Durability in a commercial environment could relate to the ability of the floor to withstand pin point pressure from high heel shoes or a high volume of pedestrian traffic.

In an industrial workshop environment, durability could be interpreted as the capability to stand up against chemical spillage, impact from dropped tools or forklift traffic.

Food and beverage environments are often one of the most punishing for floor coatings and a durable flooring solution is key. These environments are subjected to thermal stresses, foot traffic, wheeled traffic, impact from dropped equipment, chemicals and moisture to name a few.

The success or failure or a resin floor coating system can often be highlighted during the specification phase. If the wrong thickness, resin system or sealer is specified, then it could result in a poor result for your client.
