Industrial buildings need a strong foundation because of their size. Because of the weight the foundations have to support, they can begin to sink and settle over time. Two common causes of sunken, settled and cracked industrial concrete slabs are poor soil compaction during construction and traffic from heavy machinery. If the soil is not compacted properly during construction, voids can form under the slab and cause it to sink. Voids beneath an industrial building's foundation can also lead to structural issues and could lead to the eventual collapse of the building. The vibrations and weight of heavy machinery can also cause settling and voids beneath slabs. Even concrete surfaces are necessary to have a safe and productive work environment. To keep employees, customers and your industrial property safe, you should have voids filled and settled concrete slabs lifted as soon as possible.
Polyurethane concrete levelling is the best way to lift and level industrial concrete slabs. Polyurethane foam offers a superior solution for void filling, soil stabilization, and raising sunken and settled concrete slabs. Its fast cure time, strength and durability, and non-invasive installation process make polyurethane concrete raising perfect for industrial applications. Polyurethane foam is long-lasting, unaffected by the elements and hydrophobic. It will not break down over time if exposed to extreme weather conditions or water. It is also environmentally friendly. The polyurethane foam we use is made of up to 40% recycled materials and manufactured without chemicals that can harm the environment. It can be used for a variety of industrial applications, such as warehouse floors, showrooms, manufacturing plants and storage facilities.
