Experts in Mechanical Workshop flooring
We understand the unique nature of workshop environments; from storage areas and service areas to wash bays and even customer drop off/pick up areas, each requires different characteristics to ensure durability and safety. We offer a range of finishes, from cost-effective epoxy roll coat systems right through to ultra heavy-duty trowel-applied systems, suitable for heavy vehicles, military and aviation applications.
Our team of experts provide reliable advice and a proven approach to the right system, texture and finish for your business while delivering industry-leading design, installation and maintenance.
High-Performance Epoxy and Polyurethane Coatings
Over time, chemical exposure from products such as grease, oil and solvents can deteriorate unprotected concrete floors, while high foot and equipment traffic can lead to cracking or chipping. This, in turn, can create damage that is costly and difficult to repair and cause unnecessary physical hazards.
Our durable epoxy and polyurethane coatings are extremely tough and hardwearing and tailored to meet the unique demands of your workshop with the added benefits of being:
- Impervious to chemical, thermal & impact damage
- Made from high-quality, durable materials designed to perform in high-traffic, heavy-duty environments
- HACCP, AQIS, Food Safe & DPI & BRC compliant
- Easy to clean, maintain and repair

The best type of mechanical workshop floor is an epoxy or polyurethane cement floor based with a polyurethane topcoat. It should combine these features:
- Exceed 3mm thickness to best deal with dropped tools or parts.
- Have high chemical resistance to deal with spills of fluids.
- Have a degree of non-slip additive to enhance operator safety.
- Combine multiple colours or line marking to delineate different work or traffic zones.
- Be UV stable due to inevitable exposure to bright sunlight through open roller doors.
In our experience, cheaper roll coat-based systems may look good when the floor is new, but don’t provide long term durability. Usually, they chip through to the concrete substrate very easily from dropped tools or parts. Having a trowel-applied base layer of either epoxy or polyurethane cement provides much greater impact resistance. While epoxy or polyurethane cement floors may still sustain impact damage, this tends to be to the surface only and not all the way through the coating.
A well-designed workshop floor should give over 10 years of reliable service. However, it is important to monitor heavy wear areas like the main entrance, turning areas, areas subjected to increased chemical exposure or greater impact damage. Periodic repair or even recoating may be necessary to extend the service life.
Grey coloured floors are most common due to their neutral appearance and their ability to disguise light soiling. However, Ascoat has successfully applied bespoke colours and combinations of colours to match corporate colours or other specific client requirements.
