Traditionally working in a garage is dirty work. In the past, every surface within a vehicle repair /maintenance industry was covered in a thick layer of mechanics grease and grime. Today, however, that doesn’t have to be the case. If automotive shop repair /maintenance companies choose the right vehicle workshop flooring, such as high build epoxy resin flooring systems, it can transform the environment. This is where an epoxy flooring specialist, like PSC Flooring comes in.

The main issue has always been cleaning down surfaces that are subjected to oil and grease. Due to the rigorous demands of the workshop environment floors are typically made from concrete which unfortunately is a porous substrate. When oil or grease is spilt on concrete even if wiped up immediately, they seep in and stain the surface often leaving a slippery film to the surface.
What Are The Benefits Of A High Build Epoxy Resin Flooring System?
As an epoxy flooring specialist, PSC complete a lot of Garages, MOT Centres, workshops and HGV garages. The normal recommendation for this sector is a High Build Epoxy Resin Flooring System.

Furrows Group Ltd – Vehicle Workshop Flooring
Mr. Alan Clavin of Furrows Group Ltd owns a Ford main dealership group with dealerships in Shrewsbury, Oswestry and Telford. He called PSC Flooring to look at their 380 square meters workshop floor at their Oswestry dealership.
Preparation & Application
Initially the PSC team prepared the main workshop floor area using the totally enclosed diamond grinding floor surface preparation system. After that, we prepared the edge work with a handheld 110v diamond grinder. The whole area was then vacuumed clean of all residues and dust with a 110v triple motor vacuum. Additionally, repairs were made to any localised damaged concrete, cracks, as required using epoxy mortar compound and epoxy resin filler.
The High Build Epoxy Resin Flooring System was applied to the 375 square metre workshop area, in the clients chosen Light Grey Ral 7035 before 50 linear metres by 200mm wide demarcation lines were installed in, safety yellow, Ral 1004 around the pit area and rolling road.
