Resin Flooring - Project Ready

Jack Josephsen - Thursday, January 10, 2013

At this point in the series you should now have the right applicator (Right Applicator) using the right brand (Right Brand) of the right resin flooring technology (Right Technology). 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.
