Epoxy Flooring for Locker Room Floors
Locker rooms are often known for being one of the most disgusting rooms in a building, and with good reason. We aren’t going to discuss everything that goes on in there, only that our Coat All Epoxy System is most likely your best bet to transform ugly worn out tile and grout into a beautiful and sanitary floor.
Concerns that Epoxy Floor Paint Can Address
Moisture is the biggest problem that a locker room floor is going to face. Think about it, whether it’s a swimming pool locker room, or one attached to a gym, perspiration and other liquids are going to find their way to the floor and when it comes right down to it, grout is porous. So what does that mean for you exactly? When we refer to a surface having a porous nature, we mean that it is not entirely solid. It does, in fact, mean that the surface is filled with thousands of tiny pores that you simply cannot see with the naked eye. As water leaks in between the tiles, the grout expands, eventually causing cracks. It won’t be long before your tile floor looks like a mess and a great way to find yourself spending a LOT of money having to replace it.
In addition to dealing with the potential for water damage, you also have to consider safety issues. A locker room floor is not exactly slip proof, and that creates a serious hazard. What can you do about it? Obviously you would encourage your members and patrons to wear shoes on the slick surfaces, but you can’t account for every single thing that’s going to happen. That being the case, you will want to consider commercial epoxy paint for your locker room floor. Let’s talk about some of the safety benefits!
Exploring the Safety Benefits of Commercial Epoxy Flooring
The following are just a few of the safety benefits that you will experience from your epoxy floor installation:
Slip Resistant Surface: Epoxy which means it great for locker rooms, especially if you’re adjacent to a swimming pool. One of the most common solutions for gyms is to install low tuft carpet to allow for low water absorption, but even this can become expensive. Epoxy flooring can be augmented with a non-slip additive and is therefore much safer.
Brighter: You need to see what you’re doing in a locker room – any locker room. The natural instinct would be to install more lights, but if you want to skip that part, then you might consider the benefits of an epoxy floor. It is reflective, and it will make the room seem much brighter. Not to mention a lot better looking than a floor with black grout lines and broken tiles.
Easy to Clean: You’re going to need to keep your floor clean, and if you don’t have epoxy, you might as well through in the towel, so to speak. Epoxy flooring provides a solid coating over your porous concrete floor, meaning liquids will pool at the top rather than soaking in. You can easily clean your floor with a mop, no matter what the ‘damage’ is.
These are the three main benefits of installing a commercial epoxy floor coating.
