Large concrete polishing project
Client: Clancy Construction
Polished 200 m2 of Kilsaran concrete to a non slip Silver finish
3 mm ground off surface to expose a beautiful dispersion of various sized aggregate and sand.
Floor progressively polished up to a 180 grit to ensure it met with slip resistant requirements. This finish leaves the floor with a PTV of 36 or more in wet conditions.
Floor is left with a matt finish, safe, beautiful, and easy to maintain in a very busy environment.
Polished concrete floor for industrial purposes
Despite the smooth look of polished concrete, it is no more slippery than other types of flooring.
Polished concrete floors are very easy to keep clean even in heavy traffic areas.
The flat surface of a polished concrete floor greatly decreases the vibrations that otherwise occur with forklifts. An absence of a electrical isolating covering reduces the stress on electronic components caused by ESD-disturbances.
Easy maintenance, even with heavy use
The easy maintenance of polished concrete is key in high-traffic areas where trolleys are used – such as airports, hotels, supermarkets and warehouses – eliminating the need for waxes. Non-allergic properties are important for hospitals, private residences, schools, etc.
Its glossy surface resists the marks of forklift truck tyres and staining from chemicals and oil on industrial floors. This versatility and toughness makes the concrete an ideal and ultimate flooring material for most floor applications.
Maintaining the shine requires only minimal effort. Just clean the floor regularly with a damp mop to remove grit, and use a suitable cleaner to enhance the shine. With basic cleaning, the floor will keep its lustre for years.
In high-traffic areas, sometimes buffing the floor with a floor pad will be required. Should more intervention be required, the floor can be lightly re-polished after a couple of years.
