Sub-Zero Environments pose the greatest challenge in floor construction. The stress on the workers and machines are considerable and the applicable materials and technologies are limited. Repairs on floors, built-in tracks, or profiles are therefore often improvised and not built to last, since there are often no viable alternatives. Once in operation, a cold-storage warehouse can not be heated up for necessary repairs without the risk of catastrophic damage to the construction due to the expansion of re-freezing water in the floor insulation when cooled down after repairs. Six-figure energy costs and logistical problems of finding interim storage add to the unpopularity of heating cold-storage warehouses.
Isolating and heating the damaged area of a frozen floor with a heat tent delivers unreliable results at best and is often not possible because the damage is almost always in the most heavily trafficked areas.
Therefore, we use a range of special materials like fast-setting concrete that cures at up to -40 degrees Celsius and has a setting time of only a few minutes. With these products combined with the specialised training required to successfully apply these materials, we can repair all typical defects in these harsh environments.
