That’s a great start, but here’s another tip for avoiding resin flooring
headaches – be “project ready”!
Being prepared helps everything run smoothly
Being well prepared across a number of areas will
have a big influence on how smoothly things run. If the installation of resin
floors was somehow compared to an engine, this kind of preparation would be the
oil; avoiding friction and helping individual parts perform
at their peak.
How can I help with my resin floor?
How does one become project ready? Well, if you’re managing the project it
basically boils down to taking responsibility for some important “housekeeping”
matters that are easy to overlook. Examples of the necessary undertakings
include – managing the various trades on site, clearing and cleaning the work area
in readiness for installation, restricting access during application, making
sure power is available for tools, lighting etc. and sealing off openings to
prevent other workers, dust and debris from entering. Organising some form of climate control for
applications in particularly cool environments can also be added to that list. Performing
this facilitating role effectively will make a huge difference to the quality
of the resin flooring and project overall.
Mistakes can creep in under pressure
Closely linked to preparation within a project is the issue
of sufficient turnaround. By being project ready you’ll have the best chance of
running to schedule and sticking to planned shutdown periods. This is extremely
important with resin flooring because if the timing changes for whatever reason
and the “squeeze” is applied, shortcuts become very tempting and mistakes can
start to creep in.
