Decreasing Facility Hazards with Epoxy Flooring
We were contacted by a facility about increasing the slip-resistance around their dock doors. Currently, whenever the dock floors get cold and wet, they get to be very slippery, causing fork-lifts to slip and slide. And an out-of-control fork-lift is a huge safety concern.
So our solution was to increase the floor’s slip-resistance. But achieving this isn’t as simple as laying textured tape onto the floor. When dealing with fork lifts, you have to consider the weight of the machines, and also that these fork lifts are dragging skids across the floor. That’s a lot of pressure and tension being exposed to the floor. So it’s important to find an epoxy coating that can tolerate this type of environment.
