Newark and Sherwood DC – Vehicle Workshop Flooring
PSC Flooring were called in by Newark and Sherwood District Council to look at their vehicle workshop area that they use for service and maintenance of all their refuse dispose vehicles and council vehicles.
The workshop area which was 320 square meter had signs of constant wear with residues of dirt and oil throughout and damaged localised concrete. The client was keen to bring the floor up to working stand so that the space was easy to keep clean and maintain with the large number of HGV vehicles that use it.
As with all vehicle workshops the recommendation from PSC was for preparation to remove the surface grime and create a key then a two coats high build, epoxy resin flooring system.
The Workshop area was fully prepared using the totally enclosed doubled headed diamond grinding floor preparation machine with the edgework done by a handheld 110v diamond grinder. The area was then vacuumed clean to remove all residues and dust with 110v triple motor vacuum before localised areas of the damaged concrete were repaired using resin filler and resin screed.
Two coats of Resdev Pumatect high build, epoxy resin flooring system, gloss in the clients chosen blue were applied and finished off with 200mm edging lines in Resdev Pumatect V high build epoxy resin, in safety yellow around 2 x HGV pits, 2 x rolling roads and ramp area.
The job was split over 2 consecutive weekends to ensure the busy workshop could continue to function as normal.
