Separating pedestrians and vehicles at work
A cost effective way to meet HSE guidelines, separating pedestrians and vehicles in factories, warehouses and industrial units. Looking to install pedestrian walkways in your workplace? Or does your workplace have flaking walkways that need repainting each year? We can help refresh your industrial floor giving it a long lasting lifespan.
Anglia Decor are specialists in floor preparation and painting pedestrian walkways. The most important part of the process is to prepare the concrete, prior to application of the coating. This gives the walkway a long lifespan and saves the need to repaint every few months where areas are flaking and blistering. We are also able to buy the epoxy resin coatings at very good rates. Our quotation to supply and install can work out more cost effective than buying the resin coatings online through Watco.
If your business already has pedestrian walkways, but they are in poor condition we are able to quote to remove the defective coating. We would then diamond grind the concrete giving a sound base to apply a long lasting epoxy resin walkway.
Pedestrian walkways can be created in any ral or BS code, to match company colours or to stand out against fork lift traffic routes. We are also able to apply cross hatch markings to restrict parking and signage to warn your workforce of possible dangers.
Painted pedestrian walkways help meet HSE guidelines regarding separating pedestrians and vehicles at work. A cost effective solution, our team of skilled operatives can carry out large scale projects over a weekend and leave it ready for normal business on Monday.
We give a 12 month warranty on all work and are members of the Painting & decorating association. We are Chas accredited for health and safety, have £10m insurance liability cover and provide rams before commencing the project.
We are also able to carry out line marking works, increasing safety and efficiency in the workplace. Crosshatching ensures busy areas and routes are kept clear of boxes and parked vehicles.
Zebra crossings can be placed where pedestrian and vehicle routes cross to reduce accidents.
We are also able to make entrances anti slip to reduce forklift skidding when wet outside.
Signage and numbering of boxes can help improve organisation and ensure stock can be found quickly. We can also apply line markings to exterior car park spaces using Polyurethane resin coatings.
Case Study: Pedestrian walkways at British Gaskets Ltd.
British Gaskets had a flaking pedestrian walkway and chipped main resin floor area and called us to refresh over the Xmas 2021 shutdown.
We started this project by diamond grinding the whole floor area to provide a key and remove any defective coating.
Once the floor was prepared we vacuumed to remove any dust and made a start on application of the grey high build solvent free resin coating. Our team cut in around the machinery as it was not practical to remove and reinstall the equipment. Some areas of walkways were remapped as new machines had been fitted. Resin floors usually last around 5 years before looking tired, chipped and in need of a refresh.
Once we had completed the grey floor areas, we masked the red walkway areas with a clean edge tape.
We filled imperfections to the floor and applied 2 coats of red solvent free resin coating. Once complete we removed the tape and cleaned up the site.
The finished job will not flake or blister and has an expected lifespan of around 5 years. Regular cleaning using a scrubber dryer or mop and bucket will keep the painted walkways in great condition and ensure the safety of employees.
