Flooring

Floor Options

Flooring finishes are available in galvanized metal, stainless steel, and diamond-plated aluminum. Our standard insulated panel floor includes a 3/4″ plywood wrapped with selected metal finish. Standard load for the floor panel is 600 lbs. per square ft. These insulated floors are appropriate for both foot traffic and hand trucks.

Our heavy duty reinforced floor is constructed with 1-1/8″ reinforced plywood and diamond plate steel, to withstand over 1000 lbs. per square ft. This floor is suitable for lightweight pallet jack use.

For heavier loads or use of forklifts, we recommend an insulated concrete floor. Insulated concrete floors can be installed below the existing surface, or raised above the existing floor for better price value.

Ramps (interior or exterior) are available as accessories to insulated panel floors. The standard ramps are made from wood construction and 26-gauge galvanized steel. Optional finishes include diamond-plated aluminum.

Flooring: Flooring plays a significant and intricate role to your operations. Specifying and installing the proper flooring is essential to a successful operation. From floor treatments to insulation materials, installing the right material is imperative for extending the life of your floor.  Generally speaking, cooler floors are much easier to treat since most often the only consideration is the finish on the concrete floor, assuming it is in good condition.

Freezer floors: Insulating freezer floors is a requirement to prevent floors from heaving, buckling, cracking and icing.  Freezer floor treatments include vapor barriers, thermal breaks and some kind of heating treatment. Heating the floor prevents condensation below ground. It also prevents the floor from icing. When the floor starts to ice, your forklift will lose traction during your operation.  A Glycol underfoot heating system with a warning system is utilizing a brazed plate heat exchanger to recover “FREE HEAT” from the compressor discharge is an effective measure for heating your floor.  Electrical heat tape is also a method for heating the concrete flooring. This is a low-voltage system that is programmable. It also includes a warning system and repair is a much simpler process.
