Floor Preparation

Prior to installation concrete must be visually checked for signs of cracking and surface contamination that may impair the adhesion of the floor finish. It must also be checked for physical compressive strength.

Concrete must be also be tested for moisture.  Duraflor carry out moisture testing using Protimeter Hygrometers to establish whether relative humidity are at a level suitable for the floor finish.  Generally moisture levels must be below 75% RH.  Should levels be in excess of this, various options to overcome this will be discussed with the client.  This will include the option to install epoxy based surface membranes.

Once the surface has been checked and tested Duraflor will carefully assess a clients substrate and environment, and also give careful consideration to the final floor finish before deciding on the most suitable method, or combination of methods to carry out the surface preparation.

Surface preparation can be carried out in many formats from scabbling, planing and shotblasting, to the very latest in diamond grinding technology. Duraflor use our own equipment that is generally supplied by SPE International and HTC Professional Floor Systems.  All this equipment incorporates dust extraction to minimise contamination of the surrounding environment.

On larger, and more demanding projects we employ the services of carefully chosen specialist surface preparation companies that utilise much larger heavy duty equipment.
