Industrial floors must resist severe conditions, which they should resist to continuously. The requirements the floors in the respective industrial production must fulfil are very varied, depending on the area of application. In the cosmetics and food industries hygienic floors are required, which are especially easy to clean and to disinfect. In the metal treatment industry, the load bearing capacity and conductivity of the flooring play a more important role. The industry suitable Terrazzo floors LW Industry Terrazzo made by LEONHARD WEISS Fußbodentechnik are suitable for both sectors. Their special construction combines a jointless, hygienic surface of the purity level C or ISO class 9 with a high-pressure capacity.
Heavy-duty flooring must also be clean
In the metal production industry, not only heavy machines stand on the floor, but heavy loads are transported through the halls every day. Depending on the size and load of the transport vehicles an industrial floor must resist a heavy concentrated load. The tyres are the decisive factor: pneumatic-tyred vehicles buffer the pressure much better than for example hand carts with polyamide tyres or even steel tyres.
The dirtier the industry floor, the greater the danger that steel shavings get stuck in the tyres. The result: when driving the pointed and sharp-edged shavings cause additional damage to the industrial floor. Heavy duty flooring is adapted to these requirements.
LW Industry Terrazzo made by LEONHARD WEISS Fußbodentechnik resists to concentrated loads of at least 60 Newton/mm² or more. The industrial floor is also suitable for driverless transport systems (DTS or AGV). At the same time, it fulfils the requirements in the field of cleaning and hygiene due to its surface without pores.
Conductive industrial floors for areas exposed to explosion hazards
Electrically conductive or antistatic industrial floors are indispensable for certain areas. Industrial production areas, in which inflammable and explosive substances, for example solvents etc., are used are part of these applications. Emerging gases in exhaust air or dust can also cause an explosive environment. In the same manner, employees in production are exposed to the risk of electrostatic charging. Among other reasons, this can be caused by the friction of clothing against a chair or the friction of shoes on the floor when walking. An antistatic floor is thus very important, which conducts electric charges according to the field of application, so that dangerous electrostatic charging is prevented.
If areas exposed to explosion hazards according to ATEX 100a or BGR 132 in a new building or during a renovation are to be equipped, this can be achieved using LW Industry Terrazzo (measuring standard DIN EN 1081)
Aesthetically appealing hygienic floor
LW Industry terrazzo visually resembles a terrazzo. Numerous colour variants are available. The surface is available with a matt or bright satin finish design. All floors are installed by our own personnel.
LW Industry terrazzo is laid without any joints. A practically non-porous surface is achieved thanks to the application of single layer of solvent-free, highly light-resistant and finely penetrating epoxy resin.
LW Industry terrazzo is used in the cosmetic and foodstuff production industries to purity class E or ISO Class 9. Fulfilling all requirements in accordance with EU regulation on pharmaceutical production (GMP) and FDA (US standard).
The cost-effective solution
For large, open areas (>500m²) with few floor details and wall joints, machine-laid and so cost-effective and quick to realise (e.g. large-scale industrial areas). The LW Industry terrazzo is heavy-duty and can be used in DTS areas (driverless transport systems).
Standard colors - hygienic floor doesn't need to be colorless
