Retail stores present a challenging environment when it comes to flooring. Stores are subject to high volumes of traffic, but it’s essential that the floor looks attractive for customers. So what is the best flooring for retail? Epoxy flooring is an ideal solution for retail store flooring – check out the top four reasons why:

4 Reasons Why Epoxy is the Right Retail Store Flooring Solution:

  1. Durability. Retail stores are subject to lots of foot traffic. In some cases, customers also use carts which impose additional wear and tear on the retail store floor. Epoxy floors are high strength and can endure foot and cart traffic, as well as the impact of items that may be accidentally dropped on the floor.
  1. Appearance. The floor in retail stores contributes to the overall impression that customers have when they enter the business. Epoxy floors improve the aesthetic appearance of retail stores since they can be installed using custom colors and patterns. It’s also possible to embed logos on the floor to reinforce the store’s brand.
  1. Hygiene and Safety. Given the foot traffic that retail stores experience, it’s not surprising that the floors get dirty, especially during inclement weather. A major advantage of using epoxy floors for your retail store flooring solution is that they can be easily cleaned, even with chemical cleaners designed to sanitize surfaces. In addition, epoxy floors can be installed with materials that offer skid resistance. This is essential for preventing injuries among customers and employees alike.
  1. Minimal business disruption. Retail stores simply can’t afford to be shut down for long periods of time while their floors are installed. Epoxy floors are a great option because many products have fast curing times, as well as minimal odors. In some cases, stores can even remain open while the epoxy retail store flooring solution is being installed.
