Locker rooms in busy gyms experience heavy amounts of foot traffic all throughout the day. The hot water and soap chemicals from the showers can also wear down lower quality floors. Your locker room floor needs to be able to take a beating for long periods of time without wearing down, especially in a 24-hour gym situation.
While the locker room does not encounter heavy impacts from dumbbells and the like, hot water, backpacks, and even dropped keys can do significant damage over time. Moisture is also a natural enemy of porous flooring materials, as it can cause serious structural defects like warping. With patrons consistently taking showers, moisture is a constant presence in virtually every locker room.
Materials like concrete and tile will begin showing signs of cracking and scratching within months after installation under this near-constant pressure. These damages can create tripping hazards and various homes for mildew and bacteria buildup, making for a less safe and hygienic environment.
Polyaspartic epoxy forms a completely impermeable surface. This means that impacts, dirt, corrosive chemicals, and moisture cannot penetrate the surface, so your flooring is seamless and defect-free at all times. With our team of expert flooring installation contractors, installing the ideal, high-performance flooring for your locker room has never been easier.
