Howell Group – Vehicle Workshop Flooring
PSC Flooring were called in to resurface the new HGV workshop for the Howell Group, a HGV Logistics & Transport company at their new Minworth facility where they offer full vehicle maintenance for small vans up to HGV Traction/Trailers with Pre-MOT test facilities. Having moved in just 5 months previous the space had already been installed with maintenance pits and rolling road machines. The client was looking particularly for a floor that would meet the stringent Health and Safety standards, that was easy to clean and aesthetically pleasing for visiting clients.
The vast 985 square meter space had been previously been used as an industrial workshop, so the floor needed to be shot blasted back to remove residues of dirt and oil, thoroughly clean and the edgework by diamond grinding with totally enclosed hand held 110v diamond grinder. The whole area was vacuum cleaned to remove all residues and dust with 110v triple motor vacuum. A significant number of repairs were then made to damaged localised concrete, holes and large cracks using a polyurethane mortar compound.
A one coat Resdev Pumaprime DPM epoxy resin damp proof priming system was needed to be applied to a new concrete area that totalled 344 square metres. Then a further two coats of Resdev Pumatect high build, epoxy resin flooring system, to incorporate 0.7 to 1.2mm quartz aggregate anti slip in front of 6 shutter doors was applied to the whole 985 square metres. The clients chosen light grey had the immediate effect of lightening the space.
In order to meet the stringent Health and Safety standards required, PSC masked out and laid 100mm edging lines in Resdev Pumatect V high build epoxy resin, safety yellow around 3 HGV pits, shaker plates and rolling roads totalling 104 linear metres. As an additional measure further 75mm wide epoxy resin demarcation lines in white were laid to aid reversing the HGV vehicles. Overall, the Job took 6 days (Monday to Saturday) and came in on budget.
