Why the Automotive Industry Loves Epoxy Flooring
With lockdown measures slowly easing in many countries, automobile dealerships are starting to reopen for business. However, in the wake of the lockdown measures, the landscape of car showrooms has changed, with procedures being put in place to protect the health of employees and customers.
Auto dealers have had to completely rethink their environment, with the provision of protective equipment, plexiglass screens, and sanitizer dispensers becoming a permanent fixture of dealership showrooms.
With social distancing measures also in force, many dealerships are using markers on their floors to remind customers to maintain distance. However, there is another way that the flooring in auto dealerships can help to provide a safe environment, and that’s with the installation of an epoxy flooring system.
Antimicrobial properties and easy to clean
Our commercial epoxy flooring contains an antimicrobial component that is designed to inhibit the growth of microorganisms and provide ongoing protection against bacteria, safeguarding the premises from germs and repelling odors. All our automotive industry floors are seamless too, so there are no joints, cracks, or spaces for bacteria or debris to hide in, which provides maximum protection with minimum maintenance.
In the wake of COVID-19, cleaning procedures across auto dealerships will also have to be stepped up, which is easy to do with our epoxy flooring system—it truly is a dream to keep clean. Epoxy floors are nonporous, so tire marks, spills, and grime are easily removed with detergent, hot water, and a squeegee.
For a thorough deep-clean, Everlast® floors are even tough enough to withstand jet washing.
No more waxing or buffing!
Auto dealers want to create desirability for their product, so parking their top-of-the-line cars on a scuffed or tire-marked floor will not present the vehicles in the best light possible. Over time, many inferior flooring surfaces become dull and weathered and have to be waxed, polished, and buffed regularly, which is hard work, time consuming, and costly.
Smart dealerships who choose an epoxy flooring for their showroom will quickly see the benefit: prospective car buyers will enter the showroom and see their dream car waiting for them on a pristine, high-gloss, seamless floor, creating an all-around good experience that nurtures desire for the products on display.
Colors to match your brand
With over forty colors to pick from, there is sure to be a shade of epoxy flooring to match your brand. Unlike other brands that often only include color in their top flooring layers, Everlast® Epoxy flooring has color running through every layer of the resin, so it won’t fade or look dull.
For a truly professional finish, we specialize in adding a custom design or logo to your showroom floor to tie the whole area together in an eye-catching way. Our certified installation team can make the magic happen, so let your imagination run wild!
Auto shops love epoxy flooring too
Auto shop flooring takes quite a beating and needs to be tough enough to hold up under a lot of wear and tear. Because commercial epoxy flooring is incredibly durable and hard-wearing, it’s the flooring of choice for automotive shops across the United States.
We’ve installed our Everlast® Epoxy floors in body shops, service garages, auto repair facilities, and everywhere else auto technicians demand a resilient flooring system that’s tough enough to withstand impact, solvents, brake and oil fluids or chemicals without damaging the surface. Our flooring is also capable of supporting heavy loads, which is a key consideration for truck repair shops in which large vehicles are moved in and out.
Our flooring for the automotive industry is also slip-resistant, making the workshop a safer environment for busy employees who have car servicing deadlines to meet. The anti-slip properties will keep staff on their feet and out of the accident book.
Epoxy flooring copes easily with the rigors of a busy auto shop and won’t need replacing every few years, so it’s also a cost-effective option for mechanics and auto shop managers who need a flooring system that works as hard as they do.
Choose an epoxy flooring system that’s fast to install
Whether it’s a large car dealership or a local body repair shop, both demand a flooring system that is fast to install—downtime is simply not productive.
Everlast® Epoxy is so flexible it can be installed over concrete, wood, tile, and other types of commercial flooring and can be ready for traffic in just 24 hours.
