CONCRETE FLOOR FINISHING
Duron has built our reputation on exceptional customer service and the highest quality products. The services we provide include RetroPlate Floor, Superflat Flooring and Defined Traffic Profile Grinding.Duron offers its customers over five decades of experience supplying and installing flooring, concrete products and finishes.
Below are some of the specific concrete floor projects we have completed.
Rink surfaces are very demanding to install and have specialized flatness and durability requirements that are difficult to attain.We employ specialized concrete placing and finishing techniques which were developed for installing professional hockey league rinks, including the Air Canada Centre, and the MasterCard Centre, home and practice facilities of the Toronto Maple Leafs.
Duron has unsurpassed experience and a proven track record constructing commercial parking decks – bonded structural concrete toppings, and industrial pavements. Canada’s tough climate creates many performance challenges for exterior concrete paving and parking garages which require making the correct selection of concrete mixes, reinforcing and finishing methods to ensure long-term surface durability. Our bonded structural concrete topping projects are works of art that provide the necessary degree of non-skid and are aesthetically pleasing.
Warehouse, Food Production and Manufacturing Facilities
Durons’s experience in constructing flat, durable flooring for the warehousing, production and manufacturing industries is countless. Each project is reviewed carefully to ensure that our materials and methods of construction are consistent with the goal of the owners satisfaction. Our client list includes warehousing facilities for Sears, Canadian Tire, The Brick, Adidas, Sobeys, Maidstone Bakeries, Tetra Pak, Toyota, Ford, Chrysler, Carlton Cards to name a few.
Heavy Duty Floors
Even the addition of high quality dry shake surface hardeners does not inhibit surface thickness loss in high traffic areas for long because they eventually wear through, leaving no protection against continued abrasion. Emery and Metallic toppings alone provide the only means of producing long term protection to avoid significant surface replacement costs.
Steel Fibre Reinforcing
Designing concrete floor slabs has traditionally resembled a black art, in that designers rarely use the same methods, or arrive at the same results. Steel fibre designs are much more refined. All the load conditions, from the quality of the granular base up through the spacing of the rack legs, base plate size and forklift wheel pressures must be analyzed in order to arrive at an optimal design to maximize performance and minimize the cost of each floor slab.
Floor Sealers and Coatings
Concrete floor surfaces can be enhanced and protected from dust, salt penetration and chemical attack with a variety of sealers and coatings. With decades of experience in the epoxy flooring industry we can customize a coating or flooring solution to meet your protective or resurfacing needs. Dust proofing and liquid hardening of concrete surfaces using penetrating sealers is economical and maintenance free. Chloride penetration can also be minimized in concrete surfaces through the periodic application of an economical silane sealer.
Almost 30 years ago, Duron became the first contractor in the world to achieve certified Fmin100 “Superflat” floor tolerances. Since that time we have completed over 100 defined traffic floors for various industries around the world. Our customized procedures include: formwork design, slab reinforcing, concrete mix development, placing methods, finishing techniques, and surface hardening.
Hardener and Sealer
Every exposed concrete floor subjected to solid tire forklift traffic requires hardening to protect the surface of the floor from wear. Pigmented and natural mineral and metallic dry shake hardeners produce varying degrees of abrasion resistance to extend the service life of any concrete floor.
