4m Resin Flooring Installation

This case study outlines the professional approach and detailed process undertaken by 4M Floors UK, we are a leading resin flooring specialists, for a self-storage facility. Focused on delivering a durable, aesthetically pleasing, and safe resin flooring solution, this project highlights the team's expertise in floor preparation, repair, leveling, and finishing, alongside a strong commitment to health and safety standards.


Project Overview

  • Industry: Self-Storage

  • Location: Birmingham

  • Objective: To provide a high-quality, level, and resilient resin floor capable of enduring the demands of a busy self-storage facility.


Why a resin floor the best option for a storage facility


  • Heavy-Duty: Resin floors are known for their exceptional durability and strength. They can withstand heavy foot traffic, the weight of stored items, and the frequent movement of storage containers and machinery, making them ideal for the high-demand environment of a storage facility.

  • Long-Lasting: These floors have a long lifespan, reducing the need for frequent replacements or repairs, which can be both costly and disruptive to operations.

Safety Features

  • Slip Resistance: Safety is paramount in any commercial space, and storage facilities are no exception. Resin flooring can be finished with textures that provide slip resistance, reducing the risk of accidents and injuries among staff and visitors.

  • Fire Resistance: Certain resin floor systems offer enhanced fire resistance, contributing to the overall safety of the facility.


Ease of Maintenance

  • Easy to Clean: The seamless nature of resin flooring means there are no cracks or crevices where dirt and dust can accumulate, making it easy to maintain and clean. This is particularly important in storage facilities where cleanliness can impact the stored goods' condition.

  • Chemical Resistance: Resin floors are resistant to spills and stains, including oils, chemicals, and other potentially damaging substances, ensuring that accidental spills do not result in permanent damage.


Environmental Conditions

  • Moisture Resistance: Resin flooring systems can provide a barrier against moisture, preventing damage to stored items caused by damp conditions. This is especially beneficial in climates prone to humidity or in facilities where moisture control is critical.


 

Storage Facility Resin Floor Preparation

The foundation of a successful resin flooring installation lies in meticulous floor preparation. The 4M Floors UK team initiated the project with the use of industrial grinders to level the floor surface. This critical step ensured the removal of irregularities and the achievement of a flat base essential for the subsequent phases.


Repair and Filling

Following the leveling process, the team addressed the integrity of the floor by repairing holes and filling cracks with a specially formulated resin. This step was vital in preventing future flooring issues and ensuring a solid, uniform surface for the application of the self-leveling compound.



Damp Proof Membrane

Integrating Damp Proof Membrane (DPM) for Optimal Floor Protection

A critical aspect of our recent resin flooring project at the self-storage facility was addressing the challenge of moisture vapor from the substrates. To ensure the longevity and durability of the flooring, we incorporated a Damp Proof Membrane (DPM) - a solvent and water-free, epoxy resin, liquid-applied membrane designed for this precise purpose.


Why DPM was Essential:

Moisture Barrier: Our chosen DPM provides an impenetrable barrier against moisture vapor, essential in maintaining the integrity of the resin flooring. By preventing moisture from permeating through, we safeguard the floor against potential damage and deterioration over time.


High Moisture Tolerance: The specific DPM used is engineered to withstand moisture content of up to 97% Relative Humidity while maintaining surface dryness. This characteristic was vital for our project, given the concrete and cementitious screeds' high moisture levels at the site.

Benefits:

  • Allows Immediate Installation: The DPM enabled us to proceed with the installation of moisture-sensitive floor finishes without delay. This efficiency in project execution is invaluable, especially in commercial settings where time is of the essence.

  • Long-Term Durability: By addressing the moisture challenge head-on with a DPM, we've ensured that the finished resin floor is not just visually appealing but also structurally sound and durable for years to come.

  • Versatility: The use of DPM illustrates our capability to adapt and provide tailored solutions based on the unique conditions of each project site, reinforcing our commitment to delivering high-quality, customized flooring solutions.


Incorporating the DPM was a crucial step in our comprehensive approach to resin flooring installation, reflecting our dedication to technical excellence and innovation. By choosing 4M Floors UK, our clients benefit from a flooring solution that is meticulously planned and executed to meet the highest standards of durability and performance.





Final Results & Finished Floors

The culmination of the project saw the application of resin paint, chosen for its durability, ease of maintenance, and visual appeal. This final layer provided the floor with its desired finish, encapsulating the strength and resilience required for the self-storage facility's operations.



Conclusion

The resin flooring installation at the self-storage facility showcases 4M Floors UK's commitment to excellence, from floor preparation to the final application of resin paint. By prioritising a meticulous approach to preparation, repair, and leveling, alongside a steadfast commitment to health and safety, 4M Floors UK has delivered a flooring solution that is not only visually appealing but also built to last, reflecting the company's dedication to quality and customer satisfaction.
