What types of automotive resin flooring systems do we install?
Within the automotive industry, there are many applications where a resin flooring system will be of benefit. Areas which may benefit from automotive resin flooring include garages and workshops, MOT bay resin flooring, car showrooms and car manufacturing. Another area in which resin flooring is application is as demarcation and line marking. Within automotive industries, this may be used to designate certain areas or create gangways for pedestrian or vehicle traffic.
All these areas will need specific properties from their resin flooring system. These properties could include the slip resistance of the floor, its chemical resistance or the floors finish.
Garages and car workshops
Monarch installs advanced automotive resin flooring systems to car workshops and garages across the UK. We specialise in installing epoxy resin and polyurethane flooring systems which have added slip resistance properties.
This added grip contributes to the health and safety of garages and workshops. Where spills of liquids can occur, these types of resin flooring aid in the grip of floors. This does not guarantee against slips in the workplace happening, but it does create a flooring system which has added grip to help reduce the risk.
MOT resin flooring
MOT resin flooring includes creating safety markings for bays and installing an epoxy resin or polyurethane flooring system. Because our resin systems have excellent impact and abrasion resistance, an MOT bay installed with resin can create a much needed durable surface. This can be achieved as a matt, gloss or silk finish in many colour variations. The added use of high visibility markings which we specialise in creates a safe MOT bay using resin.
For health and safety standards high visibility demarcation and line marking are a key aspect of automotive flooring. It also can create pedestrian pathways in showrooms, create bays for vehicles and add hatching surrounding machines or areas which are to be kept clear. You can find out more about our demarcation and line marking here.
Decorative resin flooring in car showrooms and waiting areas
A seamless resin flooring system, or a decorative flake finish system can create a stunning floor to showcase cars. The resin flooring is durable and long-lasting so your showroom can withstand the moving of vehicles as well as being appealing.
Furthermore, it is not just the showroom floors which may benefit from a decorative resin floor. Waiting areas and reception areas can benefit by creating a space which is appealing as well as durable to high levels of pedestrian footfall.

Resin flooring in car manufacturing plants
As resin flooring offers a dust-free, hard wearing surface it is ideal in any industrial or manufacturing environment. Its durability means that it can withstand heavy machinery and forklift traffic. As well as this, it can with stand constant pedestrian traffic with gangways installed to section off areas in factories.
Furthermore, in instances when car production lines involve sensitive electrical equipment, a statically controlled resin system may need to be installed.

Advantages of automotive resin flooring
Easy to clean/hygienic
Epoxy resin flooring is easy to clean and with a silk or gloss finish this flooring is an ideal product for the automotive industry
Epoxy floors are hard wearing and can handle areas which are subject to pedestrian traffic and medium-duty traffic such as would be seen in a showroom/workshop, and car warehouse environment.
The epoxy floors act as a durable surface which combats the effect of spillages and scuffing which may occur in environments such as car showrooms, car warehouses and car workshops which need to maintain their appearance as well as being hard wearing.
Resistant to damp substrates
Damp substrates can often be an issue to the automotive industry. A wet floor means potential hazards. Due to their capability when dealing with damp substrates, resin is suitable for any form of production or maintenance of facilities which are still in production.
Finally, aggregate can be added to a resin flooring system to aid in grip. This can be an epoxy, polyurethane or polyaspartic system. This added grip means that a floor has more grip in both wet and dry conditions. Furthermore, in a workshop, garage or showroom, the level of slip resistance of a flooring system is a main health and safety concern.
A polyurethane resin system has one of the highest chemical resistance properties Epoxy resin also has chemical resistance, however, polyurethane is considered to have higher levels of chemical resistance.
