The 5 benefits of poured floor covering

Poured floor covering has been around for a long time. But in recent years, the floors have been incredibly popular. There are several reasons for this. But before we dive deeper into the benefits of poured floor covering, we first describe what poured flooring entails.

 

Poured floors come in the form of subfloors, as well as floor coverings. In this blog, we focus on poured floors used as floor covering. So this is the finishing coat that is applied to a load-bearing floor by pouring a substance that cures on the subfloor.

 

Which materials are used in this process is essential, as this determines whether the floor has the functional, sustainable and aesthetic properties that you, the customer, are looking for.

Choose among numerous materials suitable for poured floor covering

Poured floor systems are generally epoxy or urethane-based. They contain multiple components and are mixed on-site before being applied to the substrate in a staged process. An alarming situation since there are numerous non-toxic options. Duracryl offers as many as 6 different types of poured floor types, all of which use materials that are not bad for people and nature.

Poured floor covering are seamless

There are several reasons why seamless floors are great. First, a seamless floor is aesthetically beautiful. But what many people forget is that a poured seamless floor also has no cutting loss. And thus a much more sustainable way to install a floor. 

Better for people and nature

And then we are not there yet. Because not insignificant is the amount of work that goes into the installation. Therefore, we are super proud that the installers who use Duracryl’s products do not have to deal with toxic materials, but also have a much more pleasant (work) life. No more lugging heavy and clunky materials around. A durable poured floor is the solution.

Easier and more durable to transport

Since the packaging of our poured floors is considerably more compact than PVC tiles, for example, it is a lot more pleasant to transport. For larger surfaces, this means huge savings in transportation costs. In addition, there is far less impact on nature. Perfect right?

Installation does not require adhesives

Our floor coverings are seamlessly applied and have many major benefits over sheet linoleum, for example. Installation without petroleumbased adhesives is one thing, allowing the most clean removal of a bonded floorcovering ever, with the possibility of full recycling without contamination of adhesive and subfloor residue.
