Industrial resin flooring: An overview
Generally speaking, epoxy or polyurethane resins are one of the strongest materials you can use as an industrial floor surface. Like concrete, it gives the user a floor which is tough against constant use. However, as you may already have found out concrete does have its disadvantages. This is especially when it is facing years of movement and constant use which it cannot keep up with. Monarch installs resin flooring throughout England which can give you a tougher surface which lasts longer and comes in many different systems to suit the industrial sector.
One of the ways in which resin can be a benefit to your industrial floor is options that it gives you. For example, if you are working with oils or other liquids, having a resin floor which has anti-slip properties can be a great way to improve the grip of your floor. Another resin system which may benefit your needs is those which are anti-static. In summary, these floors are conducive to help to stop the build-up of static charge, this is mainly for factories which involve small electrical components.
Monarch travel around Derbyshire, Midlands etc visiting industrial sites which are in need of a new floor. We offer no-obligation quotes as well as free technical advice so that you can make the right choice of flooring for your unique needs. We have installed floors in Halifax, Manchester, Barnsley and Hull to name a few and always maintain our professional standards of work. Take a look at our contact page for ways to get in touch with us or continue reading to find out more about the resin we install and examples of our work.
Floors with added slip resistance can aid in the health and safety of an industrial setting. This is the result of adding grip to the floor to help reduce potential hazards. Industrial resin flooring which has added grip is crucial when it comes to the safety of workers.
We specialise in creating non-slip factory flooring systems which have this added grip so that these health and safety concerns are lowered. Non-slip industrial flooring can be installed at different levels of grip, consult a member of our technical team for advice using our contact page
Health and safety is a key part of any factory, therefore we are experts in the installation of gangway markings, hatched areas and lettering/numbered markings on floors through the process of resin line marking.
Gangway markings can ensure that there are clear areas for pedestrian or vehicle traffic only. Hatched areas create sections which are to be kept clear of any materials/debris. Added numbers or wording to a floor can increase a factories organisation and productivity by sectioning out where products should be stored.
In large areas where a factory flooring system has become worn or damaged a more cost-effective solution may be to replace/repair a small area of the floor. We specialise in resin floor repair as well as how flooring can be repaired by resin.
Particularly in food and drink production, an easy to clean floor is a basic need. This is so that the floor can be sanitised correctly and thoroughly. A hygienic resin floor is dust-free and steam cleanable up to a certain degree. As well as this, a resin floor can withstand high and low temperatures and chemical resistance. Here is a link to our hygienic flooring page which can give you more information about these floors.

Health and safety
If you are looking for a resin floor for a factory, warehouse or any other industrial setting. It is clear that you need something which is not only durable, but a safe surface to work on. We know that health and safety is a big part of the industrial sectors process. Therefore we install resin systems which try and increase the health and safety.
All manufacturing processes have challenges when it comes to finding a floor which suits their needs. Generally, the manufacturing process involves the use of chemicals, liquids and more harmful liquids which can cause corrosion to floors and create an unsafe, slippery work environment. Some resin systems have high chemical resistance.
It is vital that the correct resin floor is installed which is tailor-made to each individual manufacturing processes needs. Resin flooring can provide a floor which is corrosive resistant to certain chemicals, have slip-resistant properties and is a durable surface to suit the manufacturing process its tailored to.
Markings and demarcation colours can create a safe designated area for walkways or vehicles. Subsequently improving on the health and safety by keeping the two separate reducing the risk of collision. This is vital in any manufacturing process which has heavy machinery or vehicles going back and forth through the day.
Another way in which resin can be used to aid in health and safety is by creating slopes and falls in floors. This can be used to divert any running liquids or spillages which may occur into a drainage system. In addition to the floor installation, we work with stainless steel drainage companies so they can all be installed together as a system.
Another feature of resin systems is they can have slip resistance. This is specifically useful with companies which work with liquids or damp settings.
