Floor Sloping

Floor Sloping

If your commercial or industrial flooring requires drainage from water, chemicals, oils, or any other liquid, proper floor sloping is a requirement. Improper drainage can lead to a build-up of bacteria, molds, fungus, and unsafe air quality. At Blair Duron, we have provided this service to many clients, and we deliver a very specific process to fix or repair sloping floors, which includes:

  • Removal of and materials covering the concrete foundation, such as resinous surfaces and tiles.
  • Grind or shot blast the concrete foundation to allow a strong adhesion with the new sloped surface.
  • Set rails to allow for a 2% grade from the walls to the drains. This is a very important step. Less than 2% will generally allow for puddles and not deliver the commercial flooring solution you require.
  • Prepare a slurry of cementitious and urethane materials and apply this to the entire area. The urethane will help speed up the curing process.
  • Water test the entire surface to confirm liquids are draining properly.

Our floor sloping clients include:

  • Food and Beverage production facilities
  • Pharmaceutical plants and labs
