For Hyundai the floor was an integral part of the refurbishment programme at their Import Centre in Tilbury. The floor had to meet the criteria of a strict budget and long term performance. Following site meetings and the installation of free trial areas to assess the two proposed floorings it was decided that a combination of our Epoxy Flooring systems would meet Hyundai’s demands.
Hyundai required a hard wearing floor coating that would lift the presentation of the Import Centre. It was important that the floor could withstand continual traffic from motor cars and that on going maintenance would be minimal.
It was also important that the floor had only a fine slip resistant finish to ease cleaning.
A blue close to the that used in the Hyundai motif was selected for the Drive.
Dust free shotblasting was used to remove the existing paint and to clean and key the concrete. Diamond grinding was used to alleviate the worst of the profile across the concrete.

Yellow Line markings were included in the price of the contract. Our line markings are approximately 1 mm thick and have a smooth gloss appearance making the lines easy to clean.
