10 benefits of resin flooring for commercial applications

Resin flooring has gained significant popularity in commercial environments due to its remarkable performance characteristics and versatility.

From retail stores and offices to hotels and restaurants, resin flooring offers numerous benefits that contribute to a functional and visually appealing space. In this article, we will delve into the top 10 benefits of resin flooring, shedding light on why it has become the preferred choice for commercial applications. 

1. Aesthetics 

One of the key advantages of resin flooring in commercial settings is its ability to deliver on aesthetics. With a range of finishes available — from sleek, solid-colour epoxies and PU finishes like the vebrores range, to luxurious epoxy terrazzo like vebro Classic Terrazzo, with fast cure flake and quartz designs between, resin flooring can enhance the aesthetic appeal of any commercial environment. 

2. Stain resistance 

Commercial spaces often face the challenge of spills and stains from various sources such as beverages, food and chemicals. Resin flooring is non-porous by nature, so is highly resistant to stains, and its seamless surface makes it easy to clean and maintain. Not only does this save time and effort in cleaning regimes, but also ensures that the flooring remains pristine and visually appealing for an extended period of time. 

3. Enhanced safety 

Safety is of paramount concern in commercial environments, both for customers and employees. Resin flooring offers enhanced safety features that contribute to accident prevention. By incorporating anti-slip properties into the flooring, the risk of slips and falls is minimised, even in areas with high foot traffic. The slip-resistant surface provides traction, particularly in areas prone to spills or moisture, ensuring a safer environment for everyone. 

4. Durability against heavy furniture & equipment 

Commercial spaces often house heavy furniture, equipment and machinery that can exert significant weight and impact on the floor surface. Epoxy, PU, MMA and liquid vinyl flooring systems are engineered to withstand these demanding conditions, providing exceptional durability and ensuring that the floor maintains its integrity over time.

5. Chemical resistance 

In commercial environments, exposure to chemicals is common, whether from cleaning agents, disinfectants or everyday substances. Resin flooring exhibits excellent chemical resistance, withstanding the corrosive effects of various chemicals, preventing any damage or deterioration to the surface the floor, prolonging the lifespan of the floor. 

6. Noise reduction 

Noise levels in commercial spaces can be a significant concern, particularly multi-storey, multi-occupancy spaces with high foot traffic. PU comfort flooring, like systems in the vebroflex range, offers noise reduction properties up to 20 dB that help to create a quieter and more comfortable environment for building users. This technology’s inherent ability to absorb and dampen sound can minimise echoing and reverberation, reducing overall noise levels within the space, contributing to a more pleasant atmosphere. 

7. Easy maintenance & hygiene  

Commercial spaces demand flooring that is easy to clean and maintain while upholding high standards of hygiene. Resin flooring excels in these aspects, thanks to its seamless and non-porous surface. The absence of joints, seams or grout lines eliminates hiding spots for dirt, dust, bacteria and other contaminants. Regular cleaning routines become more efficient, as the smooth surface allows for easy sweeping, mopping or vacuuming. Additionally, the hygienic nature of resin flooring contributes to a healthier environment, reducing the risk of allergens or pollutants and maintaining a fresh and clean appearance throughout the commercial space. 

8. Versatile design options  

Resin flooring offers a wide range of design possibilities, allowing commercial spaces to achieve a completely unique look. From solid colours and decorative flakes, to luxurious terrazzo and even custom graphics, businesses can customise the flooring to align with their interior design scheme. The versatility of resin flooring ensures that it can complement various commercial settings, whether it’s a vibrant retail store, a sophisticated hotel lobby or a contemporary office space. This benefit allows businesses to create a visually stunning and cohesive environment that leaves a lasting impression on customers, employees and other building users. 

Not only that, more functional areas of commercial facilities, such as multi-storey car parks or bike storage, can take advantage of the almost limitless range of colours in which epoxy can be installed, improving safety through clear navigation and coloured parking bays. 

9. Improved light reflectivity  

Effective lighting is crucial in commercial spaces, as it impacts the overall ambiance, visibility and energy efficiency. Epoxy flooring systems often exhibit excellent light reflectivity properties, owing to their gloss or satin finish, maximising the distribution of available light throughout the space. Because this can reduce the need for additional artificial lighting and allow for natural and artificial light sources to be used more efficiently, businesses can create a well-lit environment that improves productivity and enhances visual appeal of the space, all while reducing energy consumption. 

10. Sustainable & eco-friendly option  

Resin flooring aligns with the growing demand for eco-friendly and sustainable solutions with systems that are low in volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and can contribute to LEED certification. Additionally, the long lifespan and low maintenance requirements of resin flooring contribute to reduced waste and environmental impact over time. 

That’s a wrap…  

With a multitude of benefits that no only enhance productivity, safety and aesthetics but also contribute to sustainability, it’s no wonder polymer flooring is an ever-increasingly popular choice for commercial applications.
