Floor Grinding is used to produce a smooth finish on flat surfaces for free movement floors.
Free movement floors refer to areas where materials handling equipment operate in random, non-defined directions and have an infinite number of travel paths.
Levels are generally taken in a 1m grid over the whole area of the slab and the results are tabulated for analysis.
The results are analysed and plotted to give a graphical illustration of the surface of the floor slab.
From this analysis a graphical grinding plan can be developed to show the grinding team the exact location and extent of the problem area(s).
In the final stage, with the grinding plan to hand, corrective grinding is carried out starting with the highest area(s) and working down through the lower area(s) until this dust-free grinding operation is complete.
Frequent checks are made to ensure that only the correct amount of surface is removed, and that the completed floor slab meets the specified flatness requirement.
