FOR DURABILITY, HYGIENE AND SLIP-RESISTANCE, IT HAS TO BE RESIN FLOORING
Resin flooring is the flooring of choice for industrial applications whether manufacturing or warehousing. These include the most aggressive environments, because of the excellent performance characteristics of resin flooring and its ability to provide a seamless, hygienic, durable and slip-resistant floor.
FeRFA, the Resin Flooring Association, represents the majority of companies in the sector and uses a classification for different resin flooring types. This is the basis of the British Standard BS8204-6. The resin types are defined from Type 1 to Type 8, based on the applied thickness of the resin system. The thickest type is greater than 6mm and is effectively impervious, for the heaviest loading and trafficking. The FeRFA classification system allows a cross-reference between products from different manufacturers, irrespective of brand names, and provides useful guidance when selecting a resin flooring system.
