Impact Flooring – What Is Resin Flooring?

When looking for a resin floor for your business, property or home, there are many factors to consider that can affect the durability and performance of your flooring solution. One of the most important aspects is the level of wear and tear your floor can take, and how much general damage it can sustain without a significant impact on its functionality or appearance.

Resin floors have a long lifespan and can withstand heavy traffic, chemicals and other environmental elements like UV and heat. They can be washed, disinfected and steam-cleaned to ensure hygienic conditions without losing their protective properties or becoming damaged. They are also impenetrable by bacteria, preventing them from hiding in crevices and growing, as well as being easy to clean with non-abrasive cleaning products and equipment.

The type of resin used to create a flooring solution will influence the final outcome, and the level of customisation available can be considerable. The Birmingham team at Impact Flooring offer a wide range of resin floor elements that can be combined to suit the needs of a space. This includes adding decorative aggregates, pigments and other materials to the resin mixture to create a tougher surface that is more visually appealing or has anti-slip properties for safety and comfort.

What is resin flooring?

resin flooring birmingham is a plastic-like layer that is poured onto a concrete floor and hardened to form a sturdy and durable finish. It can be applied to a variety of surfaces including concrete, metal and timber floors to protect them from damage and give the area a high-quality aesthetic finish. It is often used in commercial and industrial spaces, but can also be found in residential areas.

Epoxy flooring is very versatile and offers a number of benefits to both businesses and homeowners. It can be customised in a variety of ways to match the requirements of each space, from the colours and patterns that are available to the thickness of the coating that is laid. A bespoke solution can be created that meets all of the required specifications for a specific environment, from safety and slip resistance to chemical and heat resistance.

There are various different types of resin floors that can be installed, with each option offering its own set of benefits. Light-duty resin floors are suitable for environments that see light foot traffic and the occasional rubber-tyred vehicle, while medium-duty options can be used in settings that experience frequent foot traffic and forklift truck use. For more demanding applications, a heavy-duty epoxy resin can be laid that offers improved heat and chemical resistance.

Another factor to consider when choosing a resin floor is its texture. This can be an important consideration, as it will have a direct effect on how easy the flooring is to grip, and how safe it is. Whether you are looking for an aesthetically pleasing texture or a practical one that offers more grip, there is sure to be an option that suits your specific requirements.
