A workshop floor is the basis for a safe, efficient and comfortable working environment. Whether it concerns a car garage, a metal workshop or a studio, a good workshop floor must be able to withstand all kinds of loads and influences.
But what are the properties of a good workshop floor? What requirements must a workshop floor meet? Which floors are suitable for a workshop? And what should you pay attention to when selecting a suitable floor for a workshop?
We are happy to answer all these questions and more. We also show you how you can contact ICM Projects for a high-quality, tailor-made workshop floor.
A good workshop floor must meet different requirements, depending on the nature and intensity of the work that takes place on it. In general, however, there are a number of features that are important for any workshop floor. We list them for you below.
A workshop floor must withstand heavy loads such as machines, vehicles, tools and materials. Durability extends the lifespan, prevents damage and provides stability and safety. Moreover, it reduces maintenance requirements.
The floor must be chemically resistant to liquids such as oil, fuel, paint, glue and cleaning agents. This keeps the floor free of stains, discoloration and corrosion and retains its quality and appearance. Moreover, it contributes to an environmentally friendly environment.
A workshop floor must be easy to clean. This saves time and effort and ensures a hygienic working environment. In addition, it contributes to the health of employees because less dust, dirt and bacteria accumulate.
The floor must provide sufficient grip, even when wet. This reduces the risk of slipping and ensures safety and comfort. In addition, it is ergonomically beneficial for workers, as it reduces the strain on joints and muscles.
The floor must be liquid-tight to prevent leaks and mold formation. This ensures a dry and clean working environment and is environmentally friendly because it does not cause pollution.
The floor must be quick to install to minimize inconvenience and downtime. This saves you time, money and effort and ensures that the floor is put into use quickly. In other words; it promotes the continuity and productivity of work.
The floor must meet the legal requirements and standards for liquid-tight facilities, as indicated by the SIKB. This creates certainty and trust, and prevents fines and liability.
Now that you know what a good workshop floor must meet, you may be wondering which floors are suitable for a workshop. There are different types of floors that can meet the above properties, depending on the specific wishes and needs of the workplace. Below we discuss four popular options for a workshop floor.
PVC click tiles are plastic tiles that can easily be clicked together, without glue or grout. They are strong, durable, chemically resistant, easy to maintain, non-slip, liquid-tight and quick to install.
In addition, they are available in different colors, patterns and finishes, which ensures a beautiful appearance in the workshop. If necessary, they are also easy to replace or move
An epoxy cast floor is a seamless floor made of synthetic resin that is poured over the existing surface. This floor is very strong, durable, chemically resistant, easy to maintain, non-slip and liquid-tight.
Moreover, it is suitable for heavy loads, such as machines and vehicles. With a sleek and industrial look, the epoxy cast floor can be applied in different colors
A PU cast floor is a seamless synthetic resin floor that is poured over the existing surface. This floor is similar to an epoxy cast floor, but is slightly more flexible and elastic. It is strong, durable, chemically resistant, easy to maintain, non-slip and liquid-tight.
In addition, a PU cast floor is sound-absorbing and heat-insulating, which provides extra comfort for employees. With a modern and stylish appearance, this floor can be applied in different colors
A floor coating is a thin layer of synthetic resin that is applied over the existing surface by painting or spraying. This coating is strong, durable, chemically resistant, easy to maintain, non-slip and liquid-tight.
A floor coating is also often cheaper than a cast floor, because less material and time are required. Applying it over an existing floor also requires less preparation. With a glossy and smooth appearance, a floor coating can be applied in different materials and colors.

There is no one floor that is most suitable as a workshop floor. The most suitable floor for a workshop depends on the specific needs and requirements of the workshop. PVC click tiles, epoxy cast floors, PU cast floors and epoxy floor coatings are all excellent options, depending on the situation.
The installation time of a workshop floor can vary depending on the floor type chosen and the size of the workshop. Generally, installation can be completed within a few days.
The costs of an average workshop floor depend on the type of floor, the size of the workshop, the condition of the surface, the finish and the extra options. In general, an epoxy floor coating is the most economical, because this floor requires less material and time.
A PVC click tile floor, an epoxy cast floor or a PU cast floor is more expensive because these floors require more material and time. On average you can count on a price of €20 to €100 per square meter for a workshop floor.
