Heavy Duty Commercial Garage Flooring
Tyremen, a local tyre & car service centre, contacted us for a long term solution to their busy service area. As the floor needed more than a coating to bring it up to standard a 4mm flowable polyurethane was specified.

Following consultation with our sales and technical team, Ucrete MF was selected for use in this 200m2 vehicle servicing centre in Hull.
Initially the client had contacted us, showing interest of a high build coating for his commercial garage. After speaking over the phone, we arranged a site survey to discuss the different variations of flooring systems and to get a better idea what would be the more suitable system for his working environment.
After pondering over the different options, it was the high durability of Ucrete MF that finally got the ball rolling and the idea of his floor lasting 10 times longer than any high build coating. Making Ucrete MF the most cost-effective solution in the long term. The visual aspect was also a huge factor to consider as the client’s substrate was rough tamped concrete. Without grinding his floor for days, we were worried how the finish would look with only a seal coating being applied. Not to mention how long the system would last in the busy environment.
The process then involved scabbling and grind off the shop bought ‘do it yourself’ garage paint to clean the slap, remove high spots and provide a suitable key for the new flooring system. Small defects and imperfections were then made good, so we were guaranteed a smooth flat substrate free from any areas where the self levelling compound could run into. Small cracks were then chased out, cleaned, and thoroughly vacuumed ready for the application of reenforced pro mesh. We then bedded the mesh in place with a skim of thixo modified epoxy resin to bring a ‘belt and braces’ factor to the new system.
4mm Ucrete MF was then laid and left to cure over the weekend. Finishing off with expansion joints and yellow demarcation to the MOT bay, the client was over the moon with his finished floor.
