Using a high-density polyurethane material, Atlas can restore the compromised subgrade support by curling warehouse slabs as they improperly cure. Click on the following link to learn more about Atlas Polyurethane Undersealing

Industrial And Warehouse Floor Repair

Most industrial floors take a lot of abuse. They’re subject to repeated heavy loads, hard wheel traffic, impact forces, abrasive wear, and aggressive chemicals. If floors haven’t been properly designed and built, they may develop defects and wear out well before the expected design life. Most defects, however, can be corrected. Repairing defects before too much damage has occurred prolongs the life of the floor. For long-lasting repairs, band-aid approaches won’t work, which is why repairs that work correct the cause of the defects as well as the symptoms. Most floor problems we’ve seen fall into one of four classes:

  • Curling and curling-related distress
  • Joint deterioration
  • Cracking
  • Excessive surface wear

Some of these problems require immediate action to prevent them from worsening and interfering with floor performance. Others may be more cosmetic than structural. Atlas Restoration will evaluate each with you before devising a repair a long-lasting strategy.

How To Eliminate Concrete Slab Curling

Here's how Atlas Restoration tackles concrete slab curling:

  • Movement is precisely measured at joints to assess severity of curling. Straight edges are also used to determine amount of curl. Movement greater than .015 inches is severe enough to cause deterioration three to four times as fast as normal. Restoring sub grade support is the key to the repair.
  • Holes are drilled on each side of the joint where curling has occurred.
  • A high-density polyurethane grout is pumped in under low pressure to fill voids beneath curled edges.
  • Surface restoration consists of removing the distressed concrete, reconstructing slab edges with polymer concrete and reestablishing the joint. These repairs often include grinding the surface to improve rideability and replacing damaged joint sealant material.
  • Work is most commonly done at night and on weekends to avoid disruption to normal warehouse operations.

Concrete Slab Curling

Curling is one of the most common defects found in a structure's floors. Slabs curl upward at joints, saw-cuts and edges. As forklifts pass over the joint, this loss of subgrade support causes slab movement. Joint edges deteriorate, cracks in the slab develop and wires embedded in concrete for automatic guidance systems may break. The amount of differential movement from one side of the joint to the other is directly related to the speed of floor deterioration.
