Concrete Floor Repair In Refrigerated Environments
The floor of walk-in coolers and refrigerators receive a momentous amount of wear. The environmental conditions of refrigeration and cooling can cause frost heave, dent, shift, crack, and buckle concrete as well as create harmful injury areas prone to slipping. Here’s how to repair and protect these high traffic areas and stay up to code with regulations.
Cold Storage Floor Repair
The three most common options for floor repair in refrigerated areas or cold storage are to properly patch, seal, and repair cracks. Then there are times when it is required to lay a new floor over the existing floor or to completely remove the original floor and replace it altogether. After a proper assessment of the damage in a refrigerated area, one must decide if the repair is going to be a quick fix or patch or if the repair warrants a larger solution.
