Ceramic floors for car washing facilities
The requirements placed on floors for car washes indicate that they must first and foremost be extremely resilient, slip-resistant, waterproof and easy to clean. Heavy equipment, vehicles and heavy-duty shelving wring out the floor, which would destroy conventional floors in a short time. Sharp-edged working materials, chemical cleaners, oil and much more that is used in a car wash can destroy the wrong plastic coating. Coarse-pored concrete or fragile tiles are out of place here. Also the cleaning of these floors is difficult to manage. Here you receive the floor ideal for washing plants, which is applicable in all ranges, like:
- Vehicle halls
- car wash
- waiting areas
The floor coverings available here – in particular porcelain stoneware – meet and exceed the legal requirements and ordinances that regulate exactly how car washes must be designed. Requirements can be found in BGR I 12, Arbeitsstätten-Richtlinie (ASR 8/1) and Arbeitssicherheitsinformation (ASI 4.40). Examples of car washes are required:
- Durability and slip resistance
- Extreme hardness to protect against splintering
- Easy to clean, waterproof surfaces
- Bacteria-repellent acid, alkali and fat resistance
- Hygienic and resilient floors for car washes
Porcelain stoneware is recommended for car washes. It is fire-sealed, hard-wearing, easy to clean and provides full slip resistance. Porcelain stoneware also cannot become electrostatically charged. Heavy equipment leaves no traces on these floor tiles as they allow a high point load. Due to the hard and densely fired ceramic material, water can still penetrate the floor surface with oils, fats or acids, which prevents the colonisation of bacteria and makes cleaning child’s play.
