There are many flooring options available to busy fire departments, all of which are designed to fulfil the flooring needs of the facility—from fire crew restrooms to apparatus rooms.
Durability, a long life span, slip resistance, and appearance are all factors to consider when a fire department has to install a new floor.
A firehouse is a busy place, and crews need to be ready to respond at a moment’s notice in an emergency situation. Everlast® Epoxy has a proven track record of providing tough epoxy flooring for fire departments—and here’s how we do it.
The ideal flooring for apparatus rooms
Apparatus rooms house life-saving equipment that needs to be accessible quickly. The flooring you choose can have a big impact on how quickly fire teams can be ready to respond in an emergency.
The nonporous nature of Everlast® Epoxy provides a seamless, self-containing surface, ensuring that any water from hose pipes is directed to the drains rather than seeping through cracks to the substrate and causing damage.
Even when the floor is wet, the safety of your fire officers will not be compromised, as Everlast® Epoxy flooring has an abrasive finish. Made with small natural marble stones, the textured finish creates a nonslip floor—so when a fire team needs to grab their apparatus quickly, they can do so without the fear of a slip or fall impeding their vital work.
Safe and sanitary fire station flooring
Everlast® Epoxy flooring has been designed with an integral EPA-registered antimicrobial component that penetrates every layer of the floor.
This inhibits the growth of microorganisms and provides ongoing protection of your fire department floor from bacteria, yeast, fungi, and mildew. Many epoxy floor retailers claim their floors offer antimicrobial protection too; however, this type of antimicrobial element is usually added to the sealer and not dispersed throughout the entire epoxy flooring system.
Your fire crew spends a lot of time at the firehouse, so it needs to be a sanitary and hygienic place to be. Another feature of the antimicrobial properties of Everlast® Epoxy flooring is that it repels odors—even during installation! Our floors contain no solvents, so will not emit harmful vapors or odors during installation, allowing your team to keep doing their vital work safely.
Easy-to-maintain firehouse floors
Fire stations are vast buildings that house fire trucks, apparatus, and the living quarters of the crew. After a callout, trucks and crew may return dirty and wet, tracking marks throughout the facility.
A flooring system that is easy to clean and maintain is one of the highest priorities for fire chiefs looking to replace their facility flooring,
Everlast® Epoxy floors are easy to keep clean using just detergent and water. Grime and tire marks are easily removed because the nonporous nature of an epoxy resin floor means dirt and water can simply be directed down the drains using a squeegee. No scrubbing, buffing, or polishing required!
With minimal maintenance, your epoxy floor will provide decades of easy, worry-free use. We even provide an Everlast® Floor Care cleaning solution, designed to clean and protect your fire station floor.
Durable flooring that lasts for decades
Downtime at a firehouse due to replacing a failed floor could potentially cost lives in the event of an emergency situation.
An Everlast® Epoxy floor provides protection against wear resistance and can withstand the movement of foot traffic and fire trucks without forming wear patterns—which is unlike many resinous floors that are diluted with fillers or solvents, allowing wear paths to form after just a few short years.
And wear paths are just the start of the flooring issues you could experience with an inferior epoxy floor. Over time, it will be more prone to crack and lose its protective coating, creating a haven in which bacteria and germs can thrive. These defects in the floor will also allow water to seep through to the substrate, causing the floor to fail.
Everlast® Epoxy floors offer an alternative epoxy flooring for fire departments and are designed to stand the test of time.
Our system is a custom-formulated, troweled-on epoxy that forms an impenetrable bond between the material and the substrate, vulcanizing them together. The resin-rich compound is so tightly bonded that even when subjected to constant and heavy traffic, wear paths will not form and the deterioration process is postponed.
Fine-looking fire station floors!
With over 50 colors to choose from, your epoxy floor is guaranteed to look good. Choose a shade to match the colors of your station, or allow our expert installers to incorporate your badge design into the surface of the floor.
We also provide a “Safety Yellow” hue, which can be used to mark out areas of danger or to direct foot traffic around hazards.
