NEED FOR A NO-FAIL FLOOR SOLUTION
After a standard concrete floor failed at the joints and required a complete tear-out, the developer needed to make a change.
United Properties, the developer of this third-party logisticswarehouse, used traditional concrete on an earlier projectwhich required significant repairs within 18 months of itsoriginal construction. Vowing to never go through the pain,expense, and uncertainty again, they looked to PrimX toeliminate the areas where the other floor failed: the joints.
The solution was easy for United Properties: don’t use thesame floor and expect a different result. The PrīmX teamevaluated the required loads of the facility, tested the localaggregates and cements, and designed a specific mix tomeet & exceed the future demands of the floor.
Now, four years post placement, the floor is flatter than theday it was placed without any warranty work performed.The head of the facility, Keith Bailey, vows to never buildanother facility without PrīmX.
Lower Total Cost of Ownership
The facility saves on fork lift tire replacement, joint maintenance & replacement, and no operational down time due to floor issues.
The facility is immaculate – and stays that way – as dust & debris are easily removed from the surface. No joints means no place for contaminants to harbor.
Efficiency: Forklifts operate at high speed
Forklift drivers are able to move fast & freely without slowing down for curled joints.
