Polished concrete

Polished concrete flooring takes a dirty, grey concrete floor and transforms it into a brilliant, easy-clean, exceptionally durable industrial floor — one that is also environmentally friendly and economical. The HTC Superfloor polished concrete flooring that we install has a far more modern and elegant commercial finish than its alternatives.

Britannia Industrial Flooring Ltd grind and polish existing and newly installed polished concrete floors to create beautiful high gloss polished concrete finish. Using our diamond grinding fleet, we can work with a polished concrete factory floor on an industrial or retail scale — no job is too large or small.

The process uses diamond tools fitted to planetary grinding machines and involves grinding away the weaker top surface to expose and refine the harder layers of the concrete. The surface becomes flat and smooth, which makes it ideal for forklift traffic. HTC Superfloor can reach a flatness of +/-2mm over a distance of 2m as long as certain conditions are met.

Polished concrete flooring makes the surface up to 10 times harder than an untreated polished concrete surface. The surface becomes so hard and smooth that it is almost impossible to damage a finished polished concrete HTC Superfloor!

The flooring is also very easy and cost-effective to maintain and clean. The smooth surface prevents the accumulation of grease and dust, and as no chemicals are added, there is no need for expensive periodic maintenance.

HTC Superfloor only needs to be installed once. If properly maintained, it will last longer than the building itself. The long product life of a polished concrete floor gives it a vastly superior life-cycle cost compared to other options such as epoxy resin, which have to be re-surfaced every 2-10 years.

Polished concrete flooring is not only simple and cheap to maintain but also environmentally friendly. It does not add any material to the surface; it simply grinds the concrete slab until the polished concrete floor becomes hard and refined. As a result, in terms of water toxicity and CO2 production, HTC Superfloor has less environmental impact than other widely used products.

Britannia Industrial Flooring Ltd is a fully trained and experienced HTC Superfloor contractor. This means that we have the proven experience and knowledge to create hard-wearing polished concrete floors used by world-leading brands.
