Prestige All Parts Ltd – Vehicle Workshop Flooring
PSC was invited by Prestige Allparts Ltd, a Mercedes repair center in Oldham, to assess their 350 square meter vehicle workshop. As a specialist in Mercedes repairs, Prestige Allparts caters to a high-end client base and is seeking a premium finish, ideally suited for a high build epoxy resin flooring system
Client Brief & Recommendation
At the site visit the client explained that they had used floor paint for many years and now required a hard wearing, easy to clean, resin gloss finish. It was evident that the 350 square metre floor had layers of failed floor paint that would need to be removed before installing any flooring system. It was recommended that a two coat High Build Epoxy Resin flooring system was installed to give the vehicle workshop the clean, easy to maintain floor they were looking for.
Preparation of floor surface
In order to remove the layers of failed floor paint and thoroughly clean and prepare concrete floor surface to take the High Build Epoxy Resin system, the floor was ground back. For the main bulk of the floor a totally enclosed triple headed diamond grinding floor preparation machine was used with the edges being ground back using a totally enclosed handheld 110v diamond grinder.
The entire floor was then vacuumed clean to remove all residues and dust before repairs localised damaged concrete, holes and cracks using epoxy resin screed and polyurethane mortar.
Epoxy resin coating system totalling 375 square metres
The entire floor was then given two coats of KDR Epocoat high build epoxy resin flooring system, in the clients chosen light grey, gloss.
The work was completed in just 2 days leaving the floor fresh and ready for the team at Prestige Allparts Ltd.
