Resin flooring is not a floor made from resin. It is a floor made out of standard flooring materials that has had a layer of resin applied to it to make it look nicer and more durable.
The use of resin allows materials that would otherwise not be sufficiently smooth or durable to be used for floors to be incorporated into them. It has revolutionised the way floors look, but because it has been used for decades we no longer notice just how radically it has changed our environment.
Where Resin Flooring is Used
This kind of flooring is genuinely used absolutely everywhere. If you see a high gloss floor in a public building, shop, airport, warehouse or factory the likelihood is that it is a resin floor. However, it is increasingly being used in outside environments, for example to produce colourful hardwearing paths through parks.
It was originally developed to hold together stone chips and to make this kind of floor easy to maintain. However, the flooring industry quickly realised that resin could be laid over practically any kind of building material. Nowadays, you will see resin laid over tiles and concrete and all sorts of other building materials.
Without resin, decorative floors that include the logo of a company would not be practical. The resin holds together building materials that would otherwise not be compatible into a solid slab. It also acts as a protector meaning that bright colours can be used without the risk of fading or wear in high footfall areas leading to light patches.
The other advantage of a floor protected with resin is that it is exceptionally easy and cheap to maintain. The cleaning of a large floor can quickly be carried out using a sit on cleaner, which cleans the floor and sucks the water up as it passes over it.
However, laying resin flooring is still a specialist job requiring the use of skilled workers and special machines. So, if you are thinking of having this kind of flooring laid it is vital that you find a well-established and experienced firm to carry out this work for you.
