Engineered to Perform

We design floor finishes so that you get the performance you want. Structure, thickness, texture, colour, resistance to chemicals can all be tailored to what you need from the floor.

Using approved variations, we make industrial floors relevant for their intended use, keeping costs down whilst building durability in.

Before we apply a new floor finish,

 

  • We will look at your floor to determine what attention the existing floor will need before a new floor finish is applied.

  • Establish what you want or need from a new floor surface

  • Discuss what slip, chemical, thermal & load resistance the floor will have to cope with.

  • Confirm the amount of time available before the area is put back into use.

  • Propose a detailed scope of work for your approval

We also consider;

  • Types of Resin There are several types of resins (Epoxy, Polyurethane, Methyl Methacrylate, Polyurea, Polyaspartic & Polymer resins) each with individual characteristics which make them better (or less suited) to particular applications and site conditions.

  • Surface Flatness SR2 Specification is generally the standard in most buildings, but occasionally an SR1 Specification is needed (to achieve a far flatter surface).

  • Drainage Requirements - Where liquid spillage is likely, we also consider drainage requirements and can build in graduated floor levels to help aid liquid dispersion to drainage points as part of our design.

BIF will provide options for either a standard system from a UK manufacturer, or an alternative solution from manufacturing partners we work closely with in mainland Europe, so you obtain the best answer before we start. 

Our Surface Engineered floor systems are constructed from a combination (or all) of the following layers;

Reconstruction Layer

We have a variety of fast cure, high strength screeds & mortars which allow us to repair, level off, stabilise and strengthen existing floor surfaces. Use of fibre reinforcement improves the Shear Strength of our screeds and use of special primers aids Tensile abilities, even in thinner section installations of 10-50mm thickness.

This layer also enables us to improve self draining properties of a floor after installing new drainage channels and gulleys, constructing graduated designed falls across a factory area.

Regulating Layer

Used for finer adjustment of level, as well as priming, moisture suppression, shrinkage crack resistance & improving the durability of the chosen resin flooring system; we apply one or more fibre reinforced layers to help us achieve the level of performance you're looking for.

Baselayer

This is the body of the chosen flooring system and provides the chosen level of slip resistance, the floor  colour and will provide the majority of the physical tolerance of the floor.

Sealer Layer

Applied as one or more layers, the Sealer Layer provides additional UV Resistance, helps improve cleaning & de-soiling properties of the floor. These performance coatings provide exceptional resistance to wear.

Designing a floor system for performance allows us to offer a flooring specification which matches your needs closely.

 

By providing the correct preparation, applying the right structure and build up, cuts unnecessary cost and means that your floor will perform as intended.
