Nimbus Foods – Warehouse Flooring
PSC Flooring were called in by Nimbus Foods based in north Wales who make ingredients for the sweet and cake industry to look at their 350 square metre Warehouse facility.
Upon assessing the floor, it was very worn, old, and had remnants of previous layers of floor paint. The client specified they wanted a new warehouse floor that would be long lasting, hard wearing, and easy to clean. The floor must accommodate folk lift traffic and hence they wanted a separate colour for walkway and non-forklift zone in safety yellow, for health and safety reasons.
The concrete floor was prepared to remove the failed floor paint, thoroughly clean and prepare concrete surfaces using the totally enclosed diamond grinding floor surface preparation system for the main floor and a totally enclosed handheld 110v diamond grinder for the edges. The area was then vacuumed clean all residues and dust with 110v triple motor vacuum. Repairs were carried out to any localised damaged concrete, holes and cracks using polyurethane screed and resin filler.

The job took 4 days and was completed over a maintenance shutdown period to avoid business interruption.
