Concrete is the Greenest Flooring Material on the Planet
That’s because most modern buildings are built on a concrete slab. Leveraging the original concrete saves trees, landfill space, and money, and provides you with a low-maintenance, durable floor that is every bit as beautiful as you want it to be. There is minimal pollution because concrete is generated in the quantity required for each job, which minimizes waste. After the concrete foundation has fulfilled its original function, the concrete is then crushed and recycled into aggregates. These aggregates can be used in new concrete pavements, back fill, or ground surface – making concrete almost fully recyclable.
Commercial Concrete Polishing
Commercial concrete floors have few limitations – they can be built anywhere in your property as long as they satisfy your needs, such as safety, durability, aesthetic appeal, and easy maintenance. We’ve installed polished concrete in hospitals, factories, schools, stadiums, warehouses, industrial plants, retail outlets, and more. Polished concrete floors are by far the most convenient and aesthetically appealing flooring option available. Check out our portfolio, which includes hundreds of successful projects that delivered attractive floors and satisfied clients.
Industrial Concrete Polishing
If you’re a sports fan, you’ve probably had some first-hand experience with polished concrete at your team’s stadium or arena. Further, this conventional industrial treatment is seen in residential garages, basements, hotels, hospitals, government buildings, commercial enterprises, and industrial environments.
Because concrete is inexpensive and longer-lasting This popularity results from the fact that when compared to other flooring treatments, concrete is inexpensive and lasts much longer.
Advantages of Polished Concrete
Concrete polishing is an option for almost any facility – it’s a natural and attractive surface which fits most needs and practically all designs. The reliability and durability of concrete makes these floors a perfect fit for warehouses and other high-traffic applications, while the easy-to-clean surface makes the floor a great option for public spaces like shopping malls and schools.
Polished concrete is a cost-effective choice for flooring, both in the short and long term. The cost of polished concrete flooring per square foot is low relative to other forms of flooring. More and more office and shopping facilities are choosing polished concrete overlays as an alternative to tiles, marbles, linoleum or plastic coatings. Clients can chose from a range that stretches from high gloss to satin standard, suiting the cosmetic and maintenance specifications of their space.
Installing polished concrete provides you with the smoothest surface possible, and minimum vibrations when transporting products with forklifts. In turn, polished concrete decreases the cost of maintenance and wear and tear on forklifts and other wheeled vehicles.
Below are just some of the advantages of polished concrete floors:
Want to improve the elegance and appearance of your concrete floor? By applying a paint or dye prior to polishing, known as concrete staining, you can create a design that reflects your creativity, and that of your space. You can choose from a variety of shades, from neutral earth tones to deep jewel tones (see image). Multiple colors may be used to make shapes with the aid of stencils, or with special staining techniques that generate a marble, or “galaxy”, effect.
Limitations of Concrete Polishing
At Manhattan Concrete Systems, we always strive to treat our customers with honesty and integrity, and we realize there are certain applications when polished concrete flooring may not work:
Polished Concrete Maintenence
Polished concrete floors are easy to maintain in an outstanding condition. Our recommended floor cleaning method is to use an automated scrubber system in tandem with our maintenance tips. Otherwise, manual sweeping using a vacuum cleaner or wet mop usually suffices. Over the course of a few years of regular care, the floor gets a perfect patina. In order to preserve its original high gloss, further polishing is recommended.
Polished concrete is an incredibly smooth surface to walk or drive on. It doesn’t contain any dust, since there are no crevices, and it is slip-resistant. Polished concrete meets the highest requirements for the handling of electrical devices. It also has the best fire safety rating of all current flooring.
