In a highly competitive market where small margins really do make all the difference, the extra material cost, extended build programme and constant maintenance downtime is no longer being tolerated by the UK’s largest retailers. This is why the UK retail sector is moving away from traditional tiling specifications in favour of more innovative retail flooring solutions.
Enter Level Best Concrete Flooring – a company that prides itself on working closely with retailers, architects and engineers in feasibility and preliminary studies to develop retail flooring solutions that save design and build costs, reduce build programme and minimise future maintenance problems.
Level Best – through their European and American supply chains – offer a full range of colours to meet marketing, corporate and aesthetical requirements. A high-quality retail concrete floor slab with monolithically-bound dry shake topping will be extremely durable, abrasive and slip resistant.
Dependant on the retailer and the level of finish required, Level Best Concrete Flooring can specify a bespoke Floor Renovation System. Stages 1 to 3 of the polishing system will increase structural integrity, abrasion resistance and anti-slip capacity of the retail floor. Stages 4-6 will leave a dust-proof, easy-clean and shiny retail floor surface.
Level Best Concrete Flooring can also provide a jointless steel-fibre reinforced retail floor solution. This type of floor solution does not require sawn-induced contraction joints which are the leading cause of floor maintenance problems and issues. For heavy-duty usage Level Best can also design floors without any saw-induced joints, which again reduces maintenance requirements. The dry shake topping also acts as a fibre suppressant, preventing fibres from protruding the retail concrete floor.
