A car park is usually the first “face” of a building a person will see, is the first impression of the entire location before even stepping inside.
Designing a car park flooring only for the reason to be a clean, functional and appealing surface can be a very tricky task. The resin flooring finish will be, in the first place, exposed to automotive oils, heavy vehicles moving in tight circles, thermal cycling, concrete substrate static and dynamic cracks, water ingress and exposure to the elements on exposed decks. So, a car park flooring finish is, first of all, a protection system for the concrete parking structure and secondary a friendly welcoming face of the building.
Car park protection systems have been designed to improve light reflectivity, reduce car traffic noise, provide concrete structure waterproofing and meet highly fire rating.
Is available a wide-range of attractive colors and options to create bright demarcation lines and signage, thus helping to regulate traffic movement and giving a welcoming impression to visitors.
Food & Drink Industry
This industry faces unique challenges when it comes to health and safety.
A range of hygienic polyurethane screed flooring solutions is designed to fulfill the unique challenges found within the food and drink industry: high chemical resistance as well as a non-slip surface that is easy to clean and degrease.
Food & drink industry flooring is subject to heavy truck and pallet truck traffic, as well as thermal shock resulting from pressurized steam cleaning – both of which can lead to mechanical damages.
Polyurethane flooring range has been developed to satisfy the highest possible hygiene standards, offering strength, durability and resilience combined with performance and easy cleaning procedures.
Warehouses & Manufactories & Retail
There’s no time for maintenance or repairs in warehouses, manufactories and retail facilities. It is mandatory to be long-lasting, chemical, impact and stain-resistant floorings that can handle consistent traffic. Despite all this abuse, it is imperative that the flooring maintains a leveled, seamless, impervious, slip resistant, colorful and functional surface.
Epoxy and polyurethane resin floorings can provide finishes formulated to create floors that meet this strict demand of smoothness and flatness. This includes self levelling resin layers and screeds, high build multilayer systems to anti-slip or smooth resin coatings.
Signages and navigational signage can be utilized within a facility flooring to improve workflow around the site by making the most efficient routes around the facility easy to identify. It is also an effective way to highlight important safety issues, such as areas that include hazardous materials or where cross-contamination is a concern.
Antistatic & anti-explosion
These floorings are designed for premises where an electrostatically conductive design is required. They are used in locations containing explosive hazards, industries that handle materials which, under wrong conditions, can ignite causing a fire or explosive event or in areas were the electrostatic flooring charge can cause damages or interference to the electronic and IT devices.
The main concern is to maintain a safe and reliable surface with certificated and approved epoxy floorings solutions.
Education & Healthcare
Epoxy and polyurethane resin flooring has become very popular in these sectors mainly due to the high wear resistance and anti-microbial nature of the available flooring systems and the fact that these are seamless, smooth and impervious. Once installed, these systems are extremely low maintenance.
These environments require hygienic floorings that have a sleek and professional look together with anti-slip properties and do not host any allergens or bacteria.
Getting the finish right is therefore essential for sites eager to maintain the highest standards of cleanliness, with a durable high-performance coating system
In building construction and renovation interventions the need frequently recurs to consolidate the structural concrete decks, using different structural reinforcement techniques, in relation to the geometric characteristics of the floor.
Depending on the case, this type of intervention is part of the improvement or adaptation operations, in order to obtain an actual performance increase, in terms of structural safety of the entire building also in reference to seismic actions.
Among the most current and effective systems of consolidation is the reinforcement system in carbon fiber high resistance, with epoxy resin.
The matrix binds the carbon fiber reinforcement, gives the composite component its shape and determines its surface quality.
VIA.ZZO | terrazzo
Is a 12 mm thickness hybrid epoxy-acrylic terrazzo, coming, standard, with a moisture mitigation membrane for water vapor evaporation control and a crack suppression membrane (elastic membrane & glass fiber mash) for substrate crack-bridging underlayers. VIAZZO works very well with underflooring heating systems.
VIA.ZZO brand is owned by Aragon Grup, proud member of the National Terrazzo & Mosaic Association USA (www.ntma.com), the First International Member of NTMA, starting with January 2020.
VIA.ZZO material system and application technology are complying with all NTMA standards and regulations. All the technical information specified in the Technical Data Sheets, Declaration of Performance, Fire Resistance Class Certificate, are according to the tests results performed by EU authorized laboratories.
VIA.ZZO flooring system is available by contracting material together with installation only. Thus, it can be assured and guaranteed the quality of this once for a lifetime job.
This seamless flooring is poured, grinded and polished on-site, almost with no joints under 100 sqm. Metal divider strips/joints (aluminum or brass), integrated into the floor surface, are specified to separate areas bigger than 100 sqm or to separate different colors of a specific design.
VIA.RUSTIK – natural stone carpets
Is a paving system made of marble, granite or river stone aggregates bonded with a flexible, clear, UV stable and water-resistant polyurethane resin applied on a wood, stone slabes, tiles, concrete, metal or asphalt substrate.
The resin covers, protects and bonds together the aggregates, enhancing their natural color and preserving their permanent “wet stone” look.
The aggregates are supplied from Italian quarries in 18 standard colors which can be blend between, each color in 3 size ranges. They are rounded, washed, dried and vacuumed with a smooth and clean appearance, like a river stone. The standard color can vary from one batch to another depending on the variation of the natural color of the original marble.
It is applied seamless on wood, stone, tiles, concrete, steel, asphalt, indoor or outdoor, for new projects or renovations. It is the ideal choice for swimming pool surroundings, paths, terraces, outdoor stairs, car access, garages, etc.
VIA.DURA – paving for ramps
Is a paving system made of granite or marble aggregates scattered on a flexible, self-leveling resin layer, light grinded and UV stable clear sealer protected.
It is the ideal solution for the concrete protection of car-parking access ramps. It is a weathering resistant, anti slip and heavy-duty flooring with a natural stone-looking.
