CG Flooring Systems Ltd (CGFS), part of the CoGri Group has completed another successful epoxy resin coating project for Die-Pat, one of the UK’s leading catering suppliers in Daventry, United Kingdom.
Die-Pat have engaged with the flooring experts previously, choosing them for a repair project in 2012.
Die-Pat is the UK’s leading supplier of specialised catering equipment hardware and plumbing components into the food service industry. 2016 marked their 50th year as a family business and with it being a significant year they took the opportunity to invest heavily in a new hi-tech press for their products.
The new press would need to sit on a surface area of around 200m2 within the workshop/storage facility and it was imperative to the overall efficiency of the company that the concrete floor slab could tolerate the new use of the area, so the team at CGFS were called in.
“We carried out initial due diligence to ensure the concrete floor slab was suitable to take the new loadings,” said Alan Yuill, Director of CG Flooring Systems. “Concrete core samples were taken and these underwent laboratory analysis to determine the strength of the concrete. The results of the laboratory testing were forwarded to Face Consultants, also part of the CoGri Group. They carried out engineering calculations and provided a report on the suitability of the floor slab.”
The structure within CoGri Group means that the global flooring experts can offer a full in-house solution, which saves clients time and money and satisfies their needs by having just a single point of contact.
The results showed that the floor slab was suitable for the new machinery, and the next step was to upgrade the appearance of the floor to complement the new use of the building.
“We carried out minor repairs to smooth out defects in the floor slab before mechanically cleaning the surface, Die-Pat,” Alan said. “Directly after this process, we applied two coats of CoGri High Build epoxy resin floor coating. This provides a clean and durable surface to suit the planned service conditions of the floor.”
“It was an absolute pleasure to be contacted by Die-Pat to work on their new project” Alan concluded. “Our ethos is about providing the correct and most cost effective solution, to suit the Clients’ needs, at all times ensuring minimal impact on their operations. We believe this is why clients come back to us time and time again.”
