Polished concrete flooring to warehouse and manufacturing area







Orangebox opened their newest site, the head office and state-of-the-art production facility situated at Nantgarw, just seven miles from Cardiff city centre. They required a floor surface that was not only robust and hard-wearing, but also aesthetically pleasing and in fitting with the nature of the business.

An area of 9,000sqm was ground and polished to HTC Superfloor Platinum concept, exposing the natural aggregate in the existing concrete to produce a high quality finish. Platinum is the concept that gives the floor the best characteristics and it is the one we recommended in this instance. This method involves more grinding steps than other concepts resulting in a unbeatably durable floor. The entire process involved grinding away the existing concrete skin, removing the top layers of material, and exposing the underlying, stronger concrete.

The floor was ground to a smooth and glossy finish which makes it easier to clean and is more resistant to tyre marks from forklifts and dirt. The process is carried out in accordance with well established and tested methods, using our fleet of HTC machines and HTC diamond tools and in accordance with HTC’s grinding guide.
