There are a few reasons why cracks can appear in concrete floor slabs and these are generally associated with restraint from shrinkage, often having no structural significance.
Other cracks can occur as a result of overloading or because of a lack of adequate structural capacity in the slab.
As a company specialising wholly in the repair and upgrade of concrete industrial flooring, we have the experience and knowledge to identify the cause of the cracking. Enabling us to provide the correct and cost-effective solution to return the floor back to a serviceable condition.
Cracks are similar to joints in that, once they appear, they should be monitored for signs of deterioration, such as breakdown or spalling at the arris edge. They are vulnerable to damage, particularly from hard wheeled materials handling equipment and once the arrisses start to spall they will never improve with neglect – they will only get worse.
Our crack repair methods combined with the application of CoGri professional repair products can reduce or even prevent further edge spalling. Leaving the floor suitable for traffic to operate safely and effectively, at the same time, minimising future maintenance costs.
