Industrial concrete floors can be worn down by heavy traffic such as forklifts, heavy loads from stock, or even by differential temperature variations. They must be repaired to enable continuity of service, and such slab repair works have to be carried out with minimum impact on operations, to meet productivity and safety objectives for operators.
Reinforcement might also be required to increase the capacity of the slab accommodate change of use or integrate new installations that will impact on the slab’s loading capacity. Openings are sometimes required so that elevators or shafts for special machines can be installed. Such operations draw on a loading scheme, together with the design of the strengthening solution. The crucial point is to minimize downtime and any impact on the warehouse operations.
