It is Applied Flooring’s business to understand your Floor Needs. In order to generate an appropriate floor system suited for your needs, we utilize two tools, the Floor Audit® and the Floor Needs Profile. Both tools are exclusive to Applied.
The Floor Audit® is a floor inventory in descriptive and pictorial form. The Floor Needs Profile (FNP) is the recording of what your flooring priorities are based on the criteria to include the following:
Environmental: such as containment protection.
Operational Changes: that include change of use requiring slope installation or removal.
Functionality: include repairing of worn cracks or joints that hinder the movement of product.
Safety: including use identification lines, and floor profiling.
Life Expectancy: which include durability and temporary, short-term applications.
Hygiene: cleanability is crucial for many industries.
Project Scope: from local repairs to whole plant retrofits.
Your priorities are matched with your required conditions that include the following:
- Confined or open areas
- Hot or cold temperatures
- Wet or dry operating conditions
- High or low humidity
- Day or night installation
- During production or shut-down time
- Short or long installation window
- High or low odour threshold
- Noise tolerance
- Dust tolerance
Applied then designs your floor system(s), based on the information yielded by the Floor Audit® and your FNP; a floor system tailored to fit your requirements.
