- Absence of joints
: contraction joints are critical points in terms of safety, because the constant stress due to the transit of fork-lift trucks and pallet trucks causes the degradation and braking of the joint itself. The technology developed by RECODI
for jointless floors
substantially reduces the maintenance costs associated with both the floor and the vehicles
- Surface abrasion resistance: the flooring must have a surface
layer that is able to resist wear and abrasion caused by high levels of traffic, and to this end quartz hardening powder at various degrees of roughness is applied
- Non-slip, waterproof and oil-resistant finishes
: these are used by RECODI to enhance worker safety
and to facilitate the transit of the vehicles used, helping to prevent the concrete from becoming soaked with liquids or oils
: to promote a sense of order and to facilitate the sub-division of the working areas, standardized symbols are applied to the ground using paint of different colours
. In this way, the flows of vehicles and pedestrians can be effectively regulated.
RECODI designs and lays flooring solutions that have been specifically designed to deliver durable high performance in environments where the temperatures reach down to -35°C. Here, the goods stocked and handled – generally foodstuffs, frozen goods or medicines – require dedicated storage methods. Every product is part of the so-called “cold chain” (from the processing of the raw material all the way to final consumption), the purpose of which is to maintain the optimum temperature to allow the goods to keep their quality intact. The warehouses in this sector are chilled and may have areas/cells with a controlled atmosphere and different temperatures depending on the type of item being stored.
Whether it is made of concrete or is resin-coated, the floor must be able to resist low temperatures and any rapid temperature shifts, maintaining its appearance and its properties.
Resin-coatings are particularly suitable thanks to the numerous advantages that they offer:
- resistance to mechanical stress
- resistance to rapid temperature shifts
- hygienic, waterproof and easy to clean
- perfect continuity of the surface, preventing the proliferation of bacterial
- resistance to chemical agents
Recodi can also produce concrete floors with the same properties as the resin floors described above with the addition of a mixture than make the surface less porous and, therefore impermeable to liquids and resistant to thermal shocks that could otherwise cause it to crack. The concrete technology developed by RECODI, together with the design of appropriate inclines and water drainage, offers high levels of performance even in service areas outside warehouses, where articulated lorries load and unload goods.
With an unwavering focus on research and technological innovation, we endeavour to find and deliver, time after time, the solution that best meets the client’s companies existing and future requirements. Taking a highly professional approach, we deal with issues relating to resistance, durability, hygiene and maintenance, giving careful consideration to regulatory frameworks and the containment of costs. The same approach is adopted for the overhaul of obsolete floors and floors with levelness problems – these operations can be turned around rapidly without producing dust, bringing the surfaces back to optimum condition.
We know inside out the issues that can arise when carrying out important and delicate logistical operations, and we are delighted to give our customers full access to our expertise. At the base your logistical operations, use floors from RECODI: 50 years of experience.
