Préparation de la surface à l'aide d'un équipement de ponçage du béton à l'entrée d'un magasin Home Hardware en Ontario avant l'installation d'un revêtement de sol industriel à haut trafic MMA


Le sol de l'entrée du vestibule du magasin Home Hardware a été recouvert d'une finition décorative en écailles MMA à séchage rapide.

Processus de sélection

Home Hardware had expressed interest in a decorative flake system for a renovation in the entrance vestibule at one of their large stores in Ontario. They had installed a decorative flake system in the past but to do this they had to shut down the entrance completely for 3 days.

La solution

We recommended they try our decorative flake system using MMA (Methyl Methacrylate) coatings. They agreed with our proposal and chose a colour (which will be used in all stores in the future) from our standard colour chart.

After many Covid and Supply Chain delays, we finally set a date for the installation. In one night, our company removed the tile grout, prepped and patched the concrete and installed the full 4-Coat decorative flake broadcast system and had them back on the floor with full traffic at 7am.


Applied is proud that this solution not only solved the needs and aesthetic desires of Home Hardware, but that it will meet it’s high foot traffic needs while resisting salt-corrosion during the winters. This solution was also installed in one night, leaving zero downtime from regular business operations. 

Ce sol durera très longtemps compte tenu des fortes sollicitations qu'il subira, tout en étant esthétiquement agréable.
