Industrial and commercial resin flooring specialists ACC Flooring Ltd have recently installed more than 5000m² of Pumashield medium viscosity epoxy coating in a high production factory refurbishment project at in Bradford. The project was undertaken to provide a safer working environment, efficient shop floor layout and improvements to the aesthetics of the production facility and Pumashield, manufactured by Resdev Limited, proved to be the ideal product offering excellent levels of chemical and abrasion resistance to complement it’s smooth, easily cleaned finish.
The system was applied at one of the largest printing businesses in the UK, with additional facilities located in Europe and the US. The initial project on the Bradford site involved the floor to a palletised stock storage area measuring circa 800m2, including demarcation.
After successful completion of this initial phase of work, ACC Flooring were then requested to carry out a survey of all pedestrian/truck routes within the factory, and to make recommendations on both materials and colours for a full refurbishment programme.
The area in question totalled some 3,500m2, to be completed using several different colours as well as floor decals depicting forklift trucks and ‘walking men’, to assist with the site safety management system. The work was completed by ACC Flooring in line with the customer’s requirements, working to very tight schedule to minimise site downtime with the project being carried out over a weekend with the plant back in full production on Monday morning, working on a new floor.
Following this successful application ACC Flooring were awarded with an additional contract to complete the remainder of the factory to the same high quality standard throughout.
