What are Seamless Floors?
Seamless floors are floors without seams, ridges, or joints. They are poured-in-place epoxy, urethane, or methyl methacrylate formulations and they become a natural part of a building’s very structure. You may also hear this type of flooring referred to as weldless.
Benefits of Seamless Floors
There are many advantages of seamless floors. Seamless floors are preferred in many commercial and industrial environments due to their vast range of benefits.
Benefit highlights include:
- High performing qualities like impact, abrasion and chemical resistance
- A surface that is easy to clean
- A safer surface -- no joints or ridges offer numerous benefits related to foot traffic, rolling equipment, bacterial growth, and more
- Environmental considerations -- seamless floors do not end up in landfills and can incorporate recycled or renewable content.
- A smooth surface for a better work process -- think of a hospital corridor where patients are being wheeled on gurneys or a manufacturing plant where forklifts and equipment are driving up and down busy traffic aisles
- Design. As a design element, seamless floors produce a clean, sleek look that is highly-coveted in commercial environments.
Every industry can benefit from seamless flooring, both commercial and industrial. Seamless floors work in every space and have the properties to deliver protection with a look you desire.
