The purpose of Warehouse floor is to carry the load of the entire operation and is also the base for the racking systems and the surface on which the material handling equipment and other machineries run.
The warehouse floors should be capable of supporting applied loads without cracking or deforming, with minimum number of maintenance free joints and have tolerance suitable for material handling system to be used.
Also, the load bearing floor should be highly resistant to abrasion to be dust free, have resistance to any impacts and oil spills, smooth but non-slippery, easy to clean and highly durable. The right type of flooring having flatness and levelness finished in line with international specification and standards, ensures proper movement, stability, and increases the productivity in the facility as well.
