A-Z of Flooring – I is for Impact Resistance

From loading docks and warehouses to automotive workshops and hangars, impacts are a common source of floor failure within an industrial environment.

Floor failure can occur when the resinous flooring system is chipped down the bond layer, where the coating meets the concrete. These chips in the flooring system allow contaminants to infiltrate the bond layer and undermine the integrity of the flooring system causing delamination and failure.
