Floored by genius 30 years of warehouse expertise from RSL

Warehouse flooring probably takes more day to day wear and tear than any other industrial surface so the experts at Resin Surfaces Ltd have designed products to suit heavyweight demand.

Thorn-1

The UK’s leading resin flooring manufacturer specialises in putting flooring first with a range of hard-wearing, slip-proof solutions that last.

With 30 years experience under their belts RSL is happy to advise on the most demanding warehouse environments.

They provide flooring of the highest standard to withstand mega duty use like supporting racking solutions where heavy items are stored, the movement of serious machinery across a floor, including forklifts and conveyor belt systems.

Warehouse flooring is also subject to strict health and safety requirements so hygiene and cleaning regimes are all taken into consideration in an RSL floor.

The team at RSL will take your specific brief and advise you on the best product for your needs.

They have a comprehensive range of seamless resin floor and wall coatings suitable for the most demanding areas. With the need to be long-lasting one of the top priorities for warehouse customers RSL’s products have outstanding, built-in durability.

With decades of experience to draw on RSL products can be easy to install and maintain, are impact resistant, have chemical protection, are anti-slip, anti-static and represent great value for money.

Thorn Lighting presented RSL with a heavyweight challenge by asking them to supply products for one of the largest coatings projects of recent years, a 22,000 sq m factory floor in County Durham – at the time one of the firm’s newest manufacturing facilities.

The company, part of the Zumtobel Group, is a globally-trusted supplier of indoor and outdoor lighting solutions in more than 100 countries around the world.

The then new production site, built on an existing factory, needed a hard-wearing floor with level consistency throughout.

Working closely with expert contractors RSL recommended using R S Dampshield and Resucoat HB. Both products have proven track records for ease of application and were applied quickly and effectively. Keeping installation times to a minimum on such a large project was a major priority for RSL’s contractor team.

Thorn-2Once the surface had been shot blasted, to prepare the floor, R S Dampshield was used as the essential surface damp proof membrane. This epoxy resin membrane is specially designed to tolerate residual moisture within a new concrete floor so the epoxy resin coating could be applied a lot sooner after installation of the concrete substrate.

Resucoat HB was then applied – quickly and easily – and once cured, provided an excellent sealed, continuous surface – perfect for heavy wear.

Martin Wroe, RSL commercial director, said the product was very popular for warehouse flooring, industrial areas in general and plant rooms.

“It is economical to install with a long-life expectancy, and provides tough, resilient surfaces for the heaviest of production set up. The seamless finish also means that trip hazards are kept to a minimum. In busy warehouse environments this can dramatically reduce the risk of injury which is very important.”

He continued: “Health and safety considerations are at the heart of our warehousing product formulas – we manufacture with risk limitations central to our thinking. Over the years this formula has been adapted and improved to meet increasingly rigorous health and safety demands.”

The Workforce Health Safety and Welfare Regulations 1992 state clearly that surfaces should not have holes, be uneven or slippery and should be free of articles or substances which may cause someone to slip, trip or fall.

Martin again: “We work with customers to make them better managers of their flooring for the long-term.”

In recent years RSL has also developed Resuscreed 43, an extremely hard wearing warehouse flooring screed system. This product is super impact resistant with high compressive strengths, twice as many compressive strengths as concrete.

Martin again: “This is specified for the most demanding of warehouse flooring.”

With multi-national corporations like Thorn Lighting plus Tenmat, Freudenburg and BAE Systems as customers RSL has a peerless reputation for high quality warehouse flooring solutions and service excellence.

Martin concluded: “Customers – increasingly international – come for tailored advice and know they are getting decades of expertise from working in a wide variety of warehousing and logistics environments.”
