The requirements of commercial flooring are twofold: firstly, they have to be robust and hard-wearing; and secondly, they must be safe. Different industries will have different requirements for their flooring. Some will need to offer a practical solution for busy areas where traffic is likely to be heavy. Others must be hygienic, especially in food preparation areas; and flooring in public areas will also need to be attractive. So, what are the best commercial floor types?
Robex has a number of different products that are suitable for different floor uses. All come in a variety of colours and are quick-drying enough to be installed with minimal disruption to your business.
Hotel kitchens require durable and hygienic flooring that can endure frequent spills and heavy use. A top choice for these areas is a screed like RXPU 6290, which is a sturdy, non-slip polyurethane product engineered specifically for industrial kitchens. This screed is tough enough to withstand impacts, and can be easily cleaned with detergents and disinfectants, while also withstanding extreme temperatures, including steam cleaning.
Another great option is Foodsafe Quartz, designed for a long lifespan, scratch and impact resistance, and spill resistance. It can even be applied in sub-zero temperatures, making it an ideal choice for walk-in freezers.

Factories and warehouses need robust flooring that’s able to withstand heavy traffic and impacts. We frequently use RXEP Hi-Build 500 which is an epoxy coating that can withstand the majority of service conditions, offering a non-slip, seamless and waterproof finish, and is resistant to abrasions, impacts and chemicals.
If we need to do repairs to existing concrete floors before we apply the epoxy coating, our engineers use Robex Epoxy Crete.
All our products come in different colours which enables you to colour code the different areas of your flooring. For all-important line marking, we use RXPX Hi-Build Resin.

External surfaces in public spaces cannot afford to be slippery, even in wet or icy conditions. We recommend Deckmaster sealer or Gripmaster resin, both of which can be applied to concrete and timber surfaces, and provide a non-slip surface that is also resistant to abrasions. They are ideal for walkways, car parks, balconies and any outside areas that have heavy foot or vehicle traffic.
