Bus Garage Workshop

Industrial Floor Treatments (Stone) Ltd are specialist installers of hard wearing epoxy resin floor coatings and screeds in bus garages and workshops. No downtime - weekend installations.

There is no automatic flooring selection for heavy vehicle workshops with differing floor finishes and resin systems having overlapping properties - the final selection will be down to a combination of factors with cost, installation time, longevity and texture all being criteria to be considered.

The following options cover most situations.

 

Option 1 - High Build Epoxy Resin Floor Coating (Most Popular)

By far the most popular floor coating systems applied by Industrial Floor Treatments (Stone) Ltd are high build epoxy resin floor paints with a dry film thickness of 0.4-0.5mm. This equates to 12-14 coats of single pack floor paint.

Compared to basic floor paints epoxy resins exhibit far superior physical and chemical resistance properties.

High build epoxy resin floor coatings are ideally suited for use in light engineering, manufacturing, vehicle workshops, print, paper and packaging industries.

BS8204-6 categorises these coatings as Type 3 and recommends them for regular foot traffic, frequent forklift traffic and occasional hard plastic wheeled trolleys.

This British Standard also indicates an anticipated lifespan of 2-7 years for this type of floor coating dependant upon a number of factors e.g. a factory working a forty hour week will get four times the lifespan than an identical operation working a 24/7 regime.

As a general rule 20% of the floor receives 80% of the traffic with turning circles being subjected to the heaviest wear.

Anti-slip versions should be considered in areas where a slip hazard may arise from water ingress, operational spillages or debris that may land on the floor.

 

Option 2 - Self Smoothing Matt Polyurethane Resin Topping 2-6mm

Polyurethane resin flow applied self-smoothing flooring provides a matt finish floor surface that is ideally suited to predominantly dry working environments where an impact and abrasion resistant hard wearing smooth floor finish is required.

Typical areas for installation would be pharmaceuticals, manufacturing, engineering and packaging areas.

In the early days these floors were referred to as self levelling and in some quarters still are. This description should be applied with caution as at 2-3mm in thickness the levelling properties are limited although (unlike smooth gloss epoxy self smoothing floors) the matt finish does not highlight undulations that exist in the structural floor slab.

Available in a wide range of colours, self smoothing polyurethane resin floors provide hard wearing attractive surfaces that are impact, abrasion and chemically resistant, impervious and easy to clean.

Superficial surface staining caused by hydraulic oils can be an issue with this type of floor - should this be the case thay they can be protected by the application of a clear seal coat in either matt, silk or gloss.

Applied at a thickness of 2-3mm self smoothing polyurethane resin floor toppings are capable of withstanding a far greater degree of wear and tear than a high build resin floor coating and when applied at a thickness of 4-6mm are deemed to be suitable for very heavy duty environments.

Whilst self-smoothing polyurethane resin floors will scratch, scuff and gouge if subjected to heavy traffic we have never come across a situation where this type of floor has been worn to the point where the underlying concrete floor slab is exposed. The potential exception to this is severe impact damage caused by a particularly heavy load falling onto the floor - should this ever occur we would suggest that health and safety concerns will far outweigh the localised floor damage that may result.

BS8204-6 categorises these epoxy resin floor toppings as:

Type 5 (2-3mm thick) and recommends them for regular foot traffic, frequent forklift traffic and occasional hard plastic wheeled trolleys. In Light to Medium duty working environments the BS indicates a typical life expectancy of 6-10 years for this type of floor topping, dependant upon a number of factors e.g. a factory working a forty hour week will achieve four times the lifespan of an identical operation working a 24/7 regime.

Type 7 (4-6mm thick) and recommends them for regular foot traffic, constant forklift traffic and hard plastic wheeled trolleys with some impact resistance. In Heavy Duty working environments the BS indicates a typical life expectancy of 8-10 years for this type of floor topping.

An anti-slip dressing should be considered in areas where a slip or skid hazard might arise from water ingress, operational spillages or debris that may land on the floor.
