Seamless Flooring – Why Choose a Resin Floor?
What is a seamless floor?
Seamless flooring systems are just that – seamless! They are a monolithic surface that is without cracks, seams, or any other areas that might make the surface of the floor uneven. To achieve this finish, the resin is poured in place for a smooth, level, and even finish. Common resins that are used include epoxy, polyurethane, and fast-drying methyl methacrylate (MMA). The resin is applied onto the pre-prepared substrate and allowed to cure, it can take a couple of coats to achieve the desired surface appearance and performance.
Once the flooring has cured, the surface will be completely ridge and seam-free. This type of system is a very popular choice for many commercial and industrial businesses who enjoy the modern, stylish aesthetic as well as the long-lasting and durable surface that it provides.
What are the benefits of a seamless floor from RESPOL?
The most hygienic choice
The main benefit, and the reason why many business owners choose resin flooring, is that it is the most hygienic option available. A host of dangerous bacteria can build up in the cracks and crevices of your flooring, even when it is regularly cleaned. This is because the seams of the floor provide the perfect place for bacteria to breed. By removing the seams, you’re also removing the risk posed by the bacteria they harbour. A resin floor gives you the confidence that your workspace can be 100% clean, sterile, and sanitary.
Easy to clean and maintain
They are also one of the easiest flooring types to maintain. Some can withstand steam cleaning on a regular basis and the smooth, even surface means that no spots get missed during the cleaning process.
Reduced trip hazard
By their very nature, people can be clumsy! By removing any dips and crevices in your floor, you can drastically reduce the chances of staff or customers tripping in your building. We can also create a low-slip finish for extra traction underfoot to provide a comfortable surface for foot-traffic.
Practical and durable
Resin floors are extremely hardwearing, even in tough on-site conditions, meaning they are more resistant to abrasion, and cracks than other floor types – perfect for busy businesses!
Flooring doesn’t have to be plain and boring! RESPOL seamless flooring solutions are available in a variety of colours and finishes. You can even incorporate brand colours, logos, and any other bespoke design you wish!
