High Build Epoxy Resin system for HGV Haulage Company by PSC Flooring

PSC Flooring Ltd have recently completed a HGV workshop in Hereford.  Gammond Transport Ltd of Hereford called PSC Flooring Ltd in to look at refurbishing the floor surface of their 280 square metre workshop area. Gammond Transport Ltd is a road haulage company which offers a range of services to transport goods by road and as such have a fleet of HGV’s (Heavy Goods Vehicles) to service.

Client Brief and Recommendation

The client was keen to transform the space to make it brighter, lighter whilst still being hard wearing and easy to keep clean. Functionally they were looking to enhance the safety warning lines to adhere to strict health and safety guidelines. Upon inspection the 280 square metres was very worn/old concrete and had mechanical grease and grime build up and the yellow safety lining was worn. It was recommended to install two coats of high build epoxy resin with demarcation lines.

80 Square Metres of High Build Epoxy Resin

Once prepared the entire floor surface was given two coats of Resdev Pumatect, high build epoxy resin flooring system, in the client’s chosen light grey gloss. VOSA compliant safety lining was added using Pumatect V high build epoxy safety yellow, black and white including:

  • Around the main pit and rolling road a 400mm wide VOSA compliant safety lining band was masked out and applied in yellow and black, then around that a 100mm wide reversing line was added in safety yellow.
  • Headlight Aim Tester Markings were added at 5m, 6m, 8m, 11m and 13m intervals in safety yellow.
  • The Service pit area received a 400mm wide band around the perimeter in safety yellow and 100mm wide reversing lines in white.
  • 200mm wide VOSA compliant safety lining band was added to the top of the pit steps area in safety yellow and black.

Overall to complete the job it took just 4 days and was completed on time and in budget. Melissa Prosser of Gammond Transport Ltd commented, “PSC have completely transformed our HGV workshop. We are extremely pleased with how the job has turned out and are grateful for all the hard work put in by the team!”
