The weather in certain parts of the United States is unpredictable at best, so it’s important to install a flooring system that provides protection and long-term durability to your facility in all weather conditions.

Epoxy flooring delivers a hardwearing flooring solution in both hot and cold environments and in extreme temperatures—anywhere from subzero to 158°F. Read on to discover how to protect your flooring from the elements.

Benefits of epoxy flooring in cold conditions

In cold temperatures or snowy conditions, epoxy flooring will protect your floors from the elements. If your facility is outdoors, in an environment with open loading bays, or a lobby or reception areas where wet footprints are an issue, you need to ensure your floor can cope with rain, snow, and ice.

In cold climates where temperatures reach below freezing, concrete flooring can often warp and cause issues that result in a costly repair bill.  Everlast® Epoxy flooring combats this issue as it’s installed directly over the concrete floor to provide a waterproof barrier to protect the substrate.

Epoxy flooring also provides a safer environment for your staff and customers. Snow and ice that has been tracked into the building will melt and leave puddles, which can permeate the floor and cause damage or falls.

Tiled floors also become very slippery when wet, which increases the risk of slips and injuries—and potentially a costly lawsuit. Epoxy flooring is different, as it is manufactured using small natural marble stones to leave a nonslip textured finish. In environments with known extreme conditions, additional grit can be added to the final glaze coat to minimize the risk of accidents even further.

Everlast® Epoxy flooring has been uniquely engineered to perform in subzero temperatures without cracking—it’s so durable that it is often installed in walk-in freezers or coolers—giving you every confidence that an Everlast® Epoxy floor will perform outstandingly in wintery conditions.

Benefits of epoxy flooring in hot weather conditions

If you are looking for a flooring solution that performs in environments that regularly experience high temperatures, you know that it can be a challenge.

Although most flooring can meet the task for a short amount of time, they eventually chip, crack, or lift, leaving you with an expensive repair bill or in need of a replacement floor.

One of the main concerns of using an epoxy flooring solution in hot temperatures—especially outdoors—is that most resin floors are not UV-resistant. Over time, UV rays penetrate the surface and cause “yellowing,” which not only looks unsightly but also weakens performance.

But it is not just an ugly floor that is the problem. Epoxy resins that are constantly exposed to direct sunlight are prone to bubbling, cracking, and poor adhesive properties.

We’ve recognized this issue and have developed Everlast® Outdoor Tough—a superior product that protects your flooring from UV degradation and cracking, giving you years of reliable service from your floor.  Our Outdoor Tough system will not discolor either—so your outdoor areas will always look great, no matter how hot the summer months get.

Outdoor leisure facilities rely on high temperatures and sunshine to keep the customers coming back. An additional benefit of Everlast® Outdoor Tough is its chlorine resistance, making it a great choice for waterparks and pool decks.

If you really want to turn up the heat or need a flooring option that can withstand the extreme temperatures of a commercial kitchen, then you need a resinous floor that is designed to absorb and transfer the heat. 

Everlast® Epoxy meets these rigorous requirements, with its thick, troweled-on coating that can withstand temperatures up to 158°F with ease.
