What is an Industrial Facility?
Industrial Facilities; These are the production facilities belonging to the enterprises operating in the industrial field.
Businesses operating in many sectors such as food, textile, medicine, leather, and chemistry carry out their production activities in the facility specially designed for their work areas. The industrial facility project is implemented in these facilities specifically for the needs of the enterprises.
Machines, equipment, and suitable floors specially developed for the sector the project will serve are created during the mounting process. The mounting and projecting process of these facilities is extensive and requires expertise. Especially industrial floors should be chosen correctly.
All machines in facilities operating in the industrial area are mounting on the ground. For this reason, antibacterial floors should be created to provide the necessary hygienic conditions. Highly durable floors can serve for many years in industrial facilities.
The Role of Floor in Industrial Facilities
Specially developed floor coverings for industrial facilities should be used. Especially in production facilities operating in the food sector, the floor must be hygienic. Materials with antibacterial properties should be used on the floors in these facilities. To prevent food damage and to ensure a healthy production process, floors that can be easy to clean, hygienic, and resistant to bacteria formation should be preferred.
In industrial production areas, heavy loads and heavy transport equipment and transport vehicles are generally used. To prevent this situation, the strength of the floor should also be high. Industrial floors must be resistant to impacts and bumps. These floors are not damaged against heavy loads and friction for many years. Normal floors may begin to deform after a certain period of time, depending on the use. Choosing the long-lasting floors also extends the life of the building.
Structures operating as production facilities are affected by cold and heat depending on seasonal changes. As a result, the building may expand. Building mobility will cause damage to the building and facility. If special floors are used for industrial facilities, the building’s resistance due to the mobility of the building increases.
Durable Industrial Flooring Recommendations
Industrial facilities should be planned in all details during the mounting phase and establish from special materials. Floors are significant in this process. For this, anti-acid tiles can be used on the floors. In other words, anti-acid tiles carry the required strength value in facilities operating in the industrial production field.
To catch the durability of the tiles, the mounting must be done correctly. Anti acid tiles should be applied to the vibration and epoxy method. Necessary strength can be provided when correct mounting is made. Also, a facility’s needs such as resistance to chemical and acid substances, resistance to water, hygiene, load resistance can be achieved with the right mounting. A vibrating system is the best application method for the anti-acid tiles. With this method, industrial floors can be used for many years without wear.
Vibratory Flooring Application in Industrial Facilities
Traditional flooring systems cannot be used in industrial facilities. The vibratory flooring application will appear as the most durable and highest quality floor mounting in these areas. They are the most preferred applications especially in production areas and shopping centers operating in the food and beverage field. These systems have high resistance to the most challenging environmental conditions.
Vibratory flooring solutions are not just a tile mounting method. Tiled floors where this method is applied are resistant to chemical and thermal conditions with its high performance. Also, it is extremely long-lasting against impacts, abrasion, and heavy load traffic.
Traditional floor applications do not give confidence in industrial areas. In applications with vibration, floors are mechanically compressed.Also, joint fillers provide ease of use with their hygienic and antibacterial structure.
The following steps are followed when making vibrating systems;
- First of all, the ground investigation is done by experienced teams. Then, the project suitable for the ground is determined and planned.
- Leveling concrete is prepared with sand, cement, and concrete additives.
- The ground is cleaned and the slope work is carried out on the ground.
- Prepared concretes are poured and smoothed with a gauge.
- The tiles are laid on the concrete using epoxy adhesive.
- Coating elements are compacted with high-frequency vibration machines.
- The remaining joint gaps are filled with antibacterial joint fillers.
These floors, which are specially applied for industrial facilities, can be used for many years.
