Leading high quality floor marking installations, RFID and barcode labels specialist, inotec, recently completed an impressive line marking project for market leading logistics company Culina Group.

CG Flooring Systems (CGFS) was recently called to a technically demanding project for a global supply chain management company. The floor of their industrial unit was demonstrating heave in a localised area, which was impacting the ability of the operation to perform at an optimum level, with the warehouse floor slab directly in front of the loading bays being higher in one section than the loading bay dock levellers. CG Flooring reduced the levels of the slab within a very defined area of 90 sq m, flattening, smoothing, and aligning the two adjacent floor areas.

ASG Services has been supplying physical barriers, line marking, safety signage and labelling to warehouse operators as part of its core services for 25 years. The most durable solution ASG offers is Diamond Shaving an area of concrete floor which creates a rough surface to help the paint system key more firmly. This removes any seal or ‘Power Float’ coating and is done with the use of a specialised diamond blade shod machine to a depth of 1mm – 4mm.

It is an indication of a healthy economy that suppliers are able to provide flooring solutions.
