Project Goal and Prep Work
Pemberton’s came to Hascall & Hall with the goal to turn their deteriorating production floor into an easy to clean, durable, slip resistant urethane floor that would withstand thermal shock from all their state-of-the-art equipment. This floor enables them to continue to grow while doing it safely and as clean as possible without damaging their floor. With their business stemming from the production floor Hascall & Hall had to act fast in order to make sure Pemberton’s down time was limited.
After selection of the floor took place, the prepping process began, starting with a combination of shot blasting and vacuum grinding to prep the concrete for the new flooring system. We then applied a two-inch cove base; this step assures that the floor will be seamless and easily cleaned. After letting the cove base cure, we applied our base coat and diligently broadcast flint shot aggregate into the wet urethane system which gives the floor a gritty, slip resistant texture. Once cured we finished with a final topcoat that was applied to the floor and cove base to make the floor both UV stable and chemical resistant. This floor was not only exactly what Pemberton’s needed but it was also applied in just two days, limiting Pemberton’s downtime, enabling them to get production back running quickly to fulfill all their customer’s needs.
Hascall & Hall would like to thank Pemberton’s Gourmet Foods for granting us the opportunity to apply their new floor. After leaving the job site Hascall & Hall left behind a floor that was easy to clean, slip resistant and thermal shock proof so now Pemberton’s can continue to provide the highest quality gourmet food products to its customers.
