CONCRETE FOR WAREHOUSES
Choosing the right stuff
More often than not warehouses require a reinforced surface to safely manage the incredible weight and heavy traffic they endure on a daily basis. Reinforcement is installed either as traditional steel mesh and re-bar or AS steel/Polypropylene fibres. We can design these and provide an insurance backed warranty.
Perimeter shuttering, expansion/contraction and cracking control may also be required, which we can supply.
Types of Lay
With warehouse floors you need to consider the primary purpose of the space. If high racking or shelves are to be installed you may need a high tolerance surface (FM2 or FM3) to allow smooth forklift operation. For this, we’d recommend a Laser Screed Lay to cover a large area to a high degree of flatness and levelness (More information on Floor Tolerance Classes). If you have access restrictions or only a small surface to concrete, we’d use our smaller laser screeds instead. Or screed rails using the ‘Acra Screed’ system of which we are approved installers.
Most warehouses have racking or high traffic areas, which indicates the need for a very flat surface using a range of Powerfloats, We can achieve flatness tolerances of FM1 – FM2; ensuring your floor is smoother for forklift operations. If you have a high traffic warehouse; you’ll want to consider a dry shake topping which provides an extra layer of resilience against wear & tear. If you have plans to surface the floor with tiles or a decorative finish, a lower flatness tolerance without dry shake topping will usually suffice.
We’ve installed concrete flooring in warehouses all across the country. Check out some of our warehouse case studies; you’re sure to find a previous job we’ve completed that closely matches your needs.
