Why seamless floor and wall systems?
Seamless floor and wall systems facilitates a cleaner, safer environment, removing a potential hiding place and breeding ground for bacteria or other contaminants that could threaten your facility's regulatory compliance. This monolithic layer provides greater protection for concrete substrates by eliminating penetration points where chemicals and other damaging materials could travel to the underlying base.
The problem with Traditional Flooring Systems
Traditional flooring systems produce gaps and joints when installed, which then become the weakest part of the floor, allowing dirt and bacteria to accumulate. These joints are most apparent between different components, between floors and walls and around columns and entrances. This can be especially dangerous in food processing and healthcare facilities which demand a sterile environment.
Why resinous floors and wall coatings are best suited to achieve seamless environments?
By definition, resinous floors and wall coatings are ideal for maintaining a clean disinfected area. The resins utilized typically have high crosslink densities providing excellent chemical and stain resistance plus cure to a smooth surface minimizing microbial growth areas. Unlike many of the other options resinous flooring is unique in that with the appropriate cove detail, the wall to floor transition provides a completely seamless interface with a “negative” edge that will not collect dust.
