The unique flooring needs of shopping malls and retail outlets
Shopping malls and retail outlets need to attract customers and provide a welcoming and safe environment. Choosing the correct commercial flooring solutions for a mall can be a challenge for facility managers as the floor they choose must be highly durable, safe, and easy to clean and maintain.
Retail flooring requires high uptime; a failed floor means a costly replacement and the closure of the mall while a new floor system is installed. A closed mall means there are no customers spending money, which causes issues for facility staff, the mall owners, and the commercial tenants who rent the shopping spaces.
The flooring experts at Everlast® Epoxy understand the high demands that are placed on commercial flooring. Our epoxy flooring for shopping malls is designed to withstand the heavy foot traffic of shoppers and provide a nonslip and sanitary surface.
Without the right flooring, a shopping mall can soon look tired and worn. Wear paths from heavy foot traffic can develop, making areas look unsightly and leading customers to choose to shop elsewhere.
Everlast® Epoxy flooring for shopping malls is designed for durability. Using only high-quality epoxies and the correct ratio of aggregate, we create a tough, flexible, and seamless system that is 160 mm thick—unlike other epoxy floorings that are just 60 mm thick.
A clean and sanitary retail environment
Germs and bacteria exist in all environments. They can be tracked in on shoes or blown through doors and windows to land on the floor. The flooring in a retail area has high exposure to microbes, so it is important to protect the floor.
Everlast® Epoxy flooring has an integral EPA-registered antimicrobial component that impedes the growth of microorganisms. This compound protects against germs and odor-causing microbes, creating a safer environment for shoppers.
Unlike tiled floors, which have joins that can hide debris, dirt, and germs, epoxy flooring is seamless—there’s nowhere for the microbes to hide. Epoxy flooring is also a nonporous, self-containing system, which means that water cannot penetrate the surface and cause costly damage to the subfloor.
Slip-resistant for shoppers’ safety
Everlast® Epoxy flooring is manufactured using natural marble stones to give it a textured, nonslip finish, reducing the risk of shoppers and staff having a slip or fall. Even on rainy days when shoes are wet and umbrellas drip, epoxy flooring will help safeguard customers.
The slip resistance of epoxy flooring makes it ideal for use in the restrooms or food hall of a mall—or anywhere where fluids, such as spilled drinks or water, can be a skid hazard.
Easy to maintain with a no-hassle cleaning routine
Most flooring surfaces used in commercial or retail environments require constant maintenance to remain clean and shiny. Carpets need shampooing to remove unsightly stains and odors, and tiles lose their luster unless they are regularly waxed and buffed.
Everlast® Epoxy flooring will reduce both the time and cost of maintaining floors. The Everlast® Floor Care System eliminates the need for mopping. Simply pour the solution over the surface, leave it to work its magic for a couple of minutes, then squeegee away for hygienically clean floors. For an even deeper clean, Everlast® Floor Cleaner can be used with automatic scrubbers or extractor floor cleaning machines.
Completely customizable epoxy flooring for shopping malls
If you’re thinking a durable, easy to maintain flooring system is only available in dull colors, think again! Our industrial-strength epoxy flooring comes in over 50 colors and is completely customizable for a unique finish to your floor.
We can incorporate your branding or company logo into the floor to provide a wow factor. We’ve also designed flooring using arrows to denote a one-way system to create space between shoppers in a post–COVID-19 world. The possibilities are truly endless when it comes to creating a unique floor. .
Easy installation and fast turnaround
Replacing a failed floor in a retail environment can be costly. When choosing a flooring system, you need to consider a solution that has minimal impact on the day-to-day mall operations.
Epoxy flooring bonds with most surfaces, so expensive removal costs of the failed flooring can often be eliminated. Installation is fast and easy: there is no time-consuming grouting involved, and epoxy flooring cures overnight, minimizing the downtime of your facility.
