The Antibacterial, Antimicrobial and Sanitary benefits of Epoxy coatings are such that hospitals, health care and similar clinical locations choose to have epoxy coatings installed in their facilities.
Installing epoxy floor coatings and continuing the coating a few inches up adjoining walls is the perfect way to eliminate hard to clean corners that can trap dirt and bacteria. Choosing a light color coating can also help you see whether the floor is visibly dirty.
In areas where there is bright sunlight, certain paints and coatings can fade or change color. Locations such as Swimming Pool Decks can become discolored. Installing an epoxy coating on pool decks will eliminate that possibility.
Your pool deck will look great and free from discoloration for years to come. Instructive markings can be set into the coatings, plus, anti-slip coatings will prevent people slipping when the deck becomes wet.
Wherever floors can become wet or slippery, safety is a major concern. Epoxy coatings offer various non-slip and anti-skid options to combat that occurrence. Anti-slip epoxy coatings are perfect for swimming pool decks, distribution centers, auto repair shops, DIY car washes, fish markets, food production area, restrooms and more.

Epoxy Coatings Require Strict, and Meticulous Installation
Installing epoxy coverings to a professional standard and working to the manufacturer’s specifications is crucial. Any shortcuts in the process can cause a breakdown in the final finish or reduce its long-term benefits.
Preparation of the floor surface may require grinding using commercial grinders and/or shotblasting. Cutting corners in the preparation stages is something we never, ever do.
Watch this video which demonstrates the steps in the process in a typical small garage.
Once the floor surface has been prepared by grinding and levelling where necessary, it is then cleaned multiple times with high-powered, efficient, HEPA filtered vacuums.
To ensure any remaining dust particles, dirt or grime that could prevent the epoxy bonding to the substrate is removed, recommended solvent is then applied to the floor surface.
All these stages are carried out efficiently and in strict order. This ensures the best outcome and will result in an epoxy finish that is impact-resistant, chemical-resistant, will not stain, is unaffected by UV, and looks fabulous for years and years.
We provide a wide range variety of epoxy finishes as well as metal epoxy coatings, and textured non-slip epoxy finishes to suit practically any location that has a need for durable, safe, hygienic and attractive floor.
Floors are not the only suitable surface for Epoxy coatings. More an more they are being applied to walls too. Oftentimes, it can be necessary to continue the floor coating part way up adjacent walls. This can be to prevent damage to the walls from water that may be on the floor, or to enable efficient regular cleaning and/or prevent crevice areas that bacteria could thrive.
