Wye Valley Group – Vehicle Workshop flooring

Wye Valley Group a busy waste recycling centre, based on Rotherwas Industrial Estate, Hereford, called in PSC Flooring to look at refurbishing their floor surface in workshop area, totalling 788 square metres.

The 788sq metre Workshop had a newly laid concrete floor, however, in order to lay the two-coat epoxy resin flooring system, the floor required preparation. The main floor surface was thoroughly cleaned and prepared with a light shotblast and the edges using a handheld 110v diamond grinder. The entire area was then vacuumed clean to remove all residues and dust before any repairs were made to any damaged localised concrete, expansion joints, holes, and cracks.

Due to the fact that moisture readings taken at multiple points over the floor showed readings at between 230 to 240, the newly laid concrete floor was given a coat of Damp Proof Membrane epoxy resin primer in order to prevent residual damp left in the concrete rising and delaminating the epoxy flooring system. Once the primer was completely dry the two coat Resdev Pumatect high build, epoxy resin flooring system was laid in the client’s chosen light grey.

Finally a 200mm wide demarcation line was installed around two pit areas and Rolling Roads in Resdev Pumatect high build, epoxy resin flooring, safety yellow.

Mr Phil Pilcher-Morris, Construction Manager at Wye Valley Group said “The high build, epoxy resin flooring system laid by the team at PSC flooring has completely transformed the space, lightening and brightening the area”
