Surface Floor Specification and Benchmarks

A critical step in a successful industrial flooring installation is the right surface condition specifications prior to the application of the flooring system. The long life of your new floor depends on it. By preparing the surface with the right amount of profile, we can ensure a proper bond of the coatings to the substrate, extending your floor’s strength, durability and beauty.

Grinding

Surface Solutions consider a number of factors when determining the type of surface preparation required for the installation of your industrial flooring. Floor Specifications should include time schedules and acceptable levels of noise and dust. Is there time in the schedule for concrete to dry to the required moisture level if water is being used in the cleaning process? Other specifications may include how uniform, clean, rough, and what strength the concrete substrate should before a coating or overlay installation. If the specifications don’t cover these issues, make sure they get covered. If testing is required, the types of tests should be incorporated into the specifications.

Proposals for surface preparation specifications should clearly spell out cleaning methods, profiling method, and surface defect repair procedures.Our job specifications for surface preparation state the surface should be sound, free from surface defects dry, and clean. It is important that the job specifications, the coatings or overlay specifications, and the expectations of the architect and or project engineer are in alignment.

All of us in construction are familiar with the “I did it per the specs” excuse. It is when the job has gone awry and a reason must be found as to why, so begins the blame game. The problem is often the job specifications and the product specifications do not coincide.

Property managers, and designers will start at the end, considering the desired result and ask”, what is the end result of the new floor we are looking for“? Fossilcote reviews their reputable products that will produce that result, and then write the specifications following the product manufacturers instructions for installation and considering the job conditions. The above is not an easy task, but it beats the blame game that occurs when it is not done.
