Industrial floors are commonly subjected to harsh service conditions which the design and construction may or may not have allowed for. However, even the most resistant and hard-wearing flooring surfaces will suffer damage and shortened service life unless proper maintenance procedures are regularly practised.
Floors which are allowed to deteriorate until unfit for use incur high costs not only in repairs but also downtimes which the company may ill afford due to urgent production deadlines. Temporary or rushed repairs are not durable and require frequent attention.
How can these problems be avoided? The speaker will present four main considerations based on “cause and prevention of problem”. Case studies will be given to illustrate and elaborate on these points. The objective is to help owners achieve industrial floors which are fit-for-purpose and maintained for long service lives.
