As experts in the field of floor installation for the business market, we at ICM Projects understand the importance of a high-quality warehouse floor. A well-chosen floor is essential for a safe and efficient working environment.

On this page you will discover the essence of a high-quality floor for a warehouse and we will tell you everything you need to know about warehouse floors.

Why is a good warehouse floor essential?

A good warehouse floor forms the basis of a well-organized and safe warehouse. It contributes to the efficiency of operations and work processes, and ensures a safe working environment for employees.

In addition, a sustainable warehouse floor can save costs in the long term because they require less maintenance, provide better insulation and last a long time. It is important that you choose the right type of floor that meets the needs and requirements of your company.

What requirements must a warehouse floor meet?

A warehouse floor must meet various requirements to be suitable for your company. The exact requirements depend on the nature and size of your business activities, but in general you can consider the following aspects:

  • Load-bearing capacity: a warehouse floor must be able to withstand high loads, such as heavy machines, vehicles, pallets or racks. The load-bearing capacity of a floor is expressed in kilonewtons per square meter (kN/m2). A higher number indicates a stronger floor.
  • Wear resistance: to be suitable for your business, a warehouse floor must be resistant to wear and tear, such as scratches, abrasion or grinding. The wear resistance is expressed in millimeters per year (mm/year). A lower number represents a more durable floor.
  • Non-slip: the floor must provide good grip, both for people and vehicles. The anti-slip value of a floor is expressed in the slip resistance class (R-value). A higher number means a safer floor.
  • Hygiene: for your company, a warehouse floor must be easy to clean, so that no dirt, dust or bacteria accumulate. The hygiene of a floor is determined by the degree of porosity, the presence of seams or joints and its resistance to liquids and chemicals.
  • Aesthetics: floors in a warehouse must match the appearance and image of the company. The aesthetics of a floor are determined by the color, pattern, gloss and finish.

Which floor types are suitable as a warehouse floor?

At ICM Projects we offer different types of floors that are suitable as warehouse floors. Each type has its own characteristics, advantages and disadvantages. Below we provide an overview of the most popular options.

Trowel floor

A trowel floor is extremely suitable as a warehouse floor. This floor consists of a combination of colored quartz sand and epoxy resin. This creates a very wear-resistant and seamless floor that can withstand heavy loads. Discover more about the possibilities of trowel floors.

Epoxy (cast) floor

An epoxy (cast) floor is an excellent choice for warehouses. This floor type is durable, easy to maintain and offers a sleek and modern look. Epoxy cast floors are also highly resistant to chemicals and heavy loads.

ESD floor

For warehouses where electrostatic discharge poses a risk, an ESD floor is the right solution. This floor prevents damage to electronic equipment and ensures a safe working environment. This not only protects your valuable equipment, but also ensures that employees can perform their work safely.

MMA floor

An MMA floor is very suitable for warehouses where speed of installation is of great importance. An MMA system floor can be fully loaded after a short time, which minimizes downtime in your warehouse and disrupts the work process as little as possible.

Can I also opt for a coating as a warehouse floor?

In addition to the above-mentioned types of floors, you can also opt for a coating as a warehouse floor. A warehouse floor coating provides a thin but strong protective layer that strengthens the existing floor and protects it against wear, chemicals and dirt.

This is a cost-effective option that can be installed quickly, saving you not only money but also time. Options for a floor coating for a warehouse are:

  • Epoxy floor coating
  • Polyurethane (PU) floor coating
  • Acrylic floor coating

Which sectors require sturdy warehouse floors?

Sturdy warehouse floors are essential in various sectors, including logistics, distribution, manufacturing and the food industry. In such sectors, sturdy warehouse floors provide a safe and efficient working environment, meeting the specific requirements of each sector.
