Designated Areas – Demarcation Lines Mark The Way.
When operating a busy workshop, with vehicles being moved about and foot traffic moving between areas, demarcation of vehicle bays is imperative.
Clear Demarcation – Showing The Way
Creating a totally safe work environment is essential in a busy workshop. It requires several elements: clear signage complemented by clear area marking or floor demarcation. Clear demarcation is a must to make the most of the available space. By marking locations in a uniform manner and colour scheme, it allows employees and visitors to quickly identify areas. This can be such as potential hazards based on visual prompts such as colour. Correct use of demarcation can greatly enhance workflow, create order, and provide safety benefits. This is by keeping employees away from dangerous areas and hazards.
Vehicle Workshop Flooring | Flooring That Is Customer Ready
The look of a workshop floor doesn’t actual improve the work you do. Hence, it may not be top of everyone’s list. However, going the extra mile to impress potential clients has its obvious benefits.

The 1430 square metre busy workshop floor had an existing epoxy resin floor surface, that although was in good condition for its age required resurfacing to give the high end look the client wanted.
Vehicle Workshop Flooring | Good Inter-Coat Adhesion
In order to ensure good inter-coat adhesion, the existing resin floor surface was thoroughly cleaned and prepared. This was using the totally enclosed double headed diamond grinding floor preparation machine for the main. The handheld diamond grinder was used to prepare the edge work. The entire floor area was then vacuumed clean to remove all residue and dust. Repairs were made to any damaged localised concrete, holes and large cracks as required using epoxy screed and resin filler. When dealing with damaged localised concrete, holes and large cracks the choice of filling material is either an epoxy screed or resin filler. This depends on the size of the area to be filled.
