PrīmX industrial floors are proven globally — and taking off in North America. These floors have ushered in a seismic shift in concrete, making traditional concrete a less desirable choice for commercial and industrial facilities. Important scientific breakthroughs have changed the engineering of concrete and enabled the development of this patented composite material that transforms how industrial floors perform.
Jointless as far
as the eye can see
Joints in concrete floors are rough on machinery and employees’ backs, and they can harbor contaminants that taint product. There are no joints in a daily pour of PrīmX floors—eliminating a mile or more per typical placement. Construction joints remain tight and, unlike other extended joint systems, there are no dominant joints on a PrīmX floor.
Good for people
Good FOR the planet
When it comes to sustainable floors, PrīmX is far superior to traditional concrete. Cement production is responsible for 5 percent of global CO2 emissions, second only to aviation. PrīmX is a composite that enhances green construction initiatives because it requires significantly less material to achieve load-bearing strength — producing up to 50 percent fewer CO2 emissions than traditional concrete. It also eliminates hazardous silica dust from joint sawing and can help earn LEED credits. It’s both the economical and eco-friendly choice.
Flat and Frictionless
Automation is the future of warehousing, industrial and manufacturing operations. With a smooth, flat PrīmX floor, robotics can navigate the space with no disturbance from curled joints and open cracks. Productivity and facility flexibility is increased, while maintenance and downtime are decreased.
longer floor life
Most traditional concrete floors require costly maintenance and repairs to fix curling at miles of joints. Machinery subjected to traditional concrete floor joints take daily abuse and result in higher maintenance costs. With PrīmX, those issues disappear. Floors don’t shrink or curl and can be cleaned using the same process used to clean traditional concrete floors.
Better bottom line
According to OSHA, approximately 95,000 U.S. warehouse workers are injured every year while operating forklifts. Back injuries, often developed from repeated strain while driving machinery over joints, are the leading injury type. PrīmX floors eliminate this issue and provide a safer, smoother, and quieter environment for workers.
