Concrete Slab Repair
A concrete floor slab is the table top on which an operation performs and as such, it is often the greatest source of maintenance in busy warehouse and industrial environments.
Impact damage from hard wheeled moving loads can take its toll on the slab, typically resulting in floor joint damage and surface defects.
As well as operational wear and tear on the floor slab, a change of layout involving the moving of equipment and pallet racking will generally bring about a requirement for the floor to be repaired.
Our experience of repairing warehouse and industrial concrete floor slabs has enabled us to develop standard repair details for the vast majority of floor slab defects.
We assess the condition of any concrete industrial floor slab, where damage and defect rectification generally fall into one of the categories below:
Joint Repair – Reconstruction of the joint arrisses
Joint Reseal – Replacing defective sealant to protect arris edges
Crack Repair – Rebonding of two sections of the floor slab
Other Repairs – Dependant on the relevant issue
Slab Repair Methods
Our concrete floor repair methods, including the materials we use have been specifically developed for use in operational, fully stocked warehouses. Our fast curing repair materials ensure we can carry out joint repairs with minimum impact on operations.
Our highly efficient vacuum systems mean there is no airborne dust, therefore no need to remove or protect stock. All our concrete floor repairs are finished flush with the surrounding floor profile, providing a smooth surface for the hard, wheeled trucks to pass over.
The main goal of our joint repair details is to, remove the deficiency to improve the efficiency. We firmly believe that a well maintained concrete floor slab and a pro-active approach to preventative floor maintenance can improve long term operational performance.
