Flowcrete UKs RIBA-approved CPD, entitled The Correct Specification for Industrial Resin Flooring outlines the criteria used when selecting systems for industrial and processing environments.
If an industrial floor is incorrectly specified, it can fail creating enormous upheaval and expense.
However, this seminar shows how a properly selected, heavy duty industrial floor finish can help to avoid such problems.
The contents allow specifiers to understand a wide-range of issues, including the reasons why floors can fail and the British Standards categories of floor finishes.
Time is also spent covering the specification of fit for purpose floor finishes, and the testing and approvals for resin flooring.
The seminar concludes with an investigation into environmental issues.
Aimed predominantly at architects, as well as process and consulting engineers, the CPD is also of value to facilities managers and other property professionals looking to specify industrial flooring products for their projects.
Ian Jones, Flowcretes Marketing Manager, said: Floors are the part of a building subjected to the most stress and traffic, and if they dont measure up to the demands placed on them, the implications for reinstatement are costly and disruptive.
For industrial and manufacturing areas, when a flooring project requires a strong, robust coating, seamless resin flooring is hard to beat.
Flowcretes formulations enable systems to stand up to heavy-duty traffic movement and bulky machinery, as well as impact and chemical attack.
Key to the success of industrial resin flooring is this ability to stand up to so many different situations. Glass can smash on it in bottling plants, cooking oils spill over in bakeries and forklift trucks travel over it in warehouses, but the floor, if correctly specified from the outset, easily deals with such activity.
