Why epoxy resin is a smart flooring system for parking lots
The surface of a busy parking lot has to withstand constant abuse, especially if it is exposed to the elements. To ensure the safety of parking lot users, the surface must be properly maintained, with each bay clearly marked and looking its best.
But how easy is it to install and maintain the perfect parking lot surface? The answer is all in the flooring system you choose—read on to discover the benefits of installing a durable epoxy resin floor.
If you need to replace or maintain a parking lot surface, you’ll know that it is time consuming and costly. Our Everlast® Epoxy system is designed to cope with heavy traffic and provide a tough, flawless finish, transforming your parking lot floor into a long-lasting functional floor that will serve you for decades.
We’ve installed epoxy flooring systems in many parking lots across the United States. In addition to an excellent product, we also provide facility managers with the peace of mind that comes with a limited warranty that states the floor will be free from any defects in the material and will not have excessive surface wear for a period of 20 years from the date of installation.
Safety for parking lot users
All facility managers prioritize a safe environment for their customers—and parking lots are no exception.
Everlast® Epoxy floors are manufactured from small marble chips, which provides a textured, slip-resistant surface that makes it safer for drivers and pedestrians to use the facility. Our epoxy resin floors are not solvent-based, which greatly reduces tire screeching and other surface noises—handy if your parking lot is located in a residential area or serves as a parking facility for a hospital, where vulnerable patients need calm and quiet.
Create a great first impression
Often, the parking lot is the first area of your facility that clients will see, and a tired, potholed surface will form a negative impression—even before they enter the premises.
By offering parking facilities that match the levels of service you offer to customers, you’ll project professionalism to any potential client before they set foot inside the building.
Creating the right first impression is easy with an epoxy flooring system. Our flooring can withstand exposure to heavy vehicle use and leaked automotive fluids, and it is chemically resistant to harsh degreasers and detergents, so your parking facility can continue to create a great first impression.
Epoxy flooring repels moisture
Our hard-wearing flooring systems are fully waterproof to protect the substrate beneath from damage caused by water ingression and dampness.
Many epoxy floors claim to be waterproof, but rely only on a thin topcoat of sealant to protect the surface from the elements. After a short period of heavy use, this protection deteriorates and ceases to provide a waterproof seal, allowing moisture to seep through the layers and damage the substrate.
Everlast® Epoxy flooring is different. Our formula is resin-rich and is designed to bond with the substrate to provide a durable 160-mm-thick (6-inch-thick) waterproof surface that won’t wear away like inferior epoxy flooring systems.
Fast installations to minimize downtime
Having parking spaces that are out of action can be inconvenient for your customers. Businesses that cannot provide parking for patrons or shoppers may see them take their business elsewhere, so it’s vital to install a floor that can be ready for use with minimal disruption to your business.
Our Everlast® Overnight Floor uses an alternate unique formula for the epoxy resins, which is designed to be a faster curing system—which means your parking lot can be open for traffic in hours, rather than days. And because our floors are solvent-free, there will be no unpleasant odors to put off your customers either.
Marking your parking bays
Our installation team is adept at creating bespoke designs within an epoxy floor. This includes demarcation lines to help parking lots users park safely in a designated bay, which can help to keep traffic flowing and maximize the space available in the facility to accommodate more cars.
We also have a wide choice of over 50 attractive floor colors for you to choose from, so you can find a shade that matches your brand to give an integrated feel to your facility.
