Polyurethane Concrete Lifting: Not Just a Residential Remedy
When I talk to people about our business, specifically the concrete lifting side, their mind tends to think about driveways and sidewalks. And why shouldn’t that be the case? We see those issues more than any other as they are usually in our daily lives. Please don’t misunderstand me; we love our driveways and sidewalks and are extremely grateful for the revenue they create, but the world of polyurethane concrete lifting is expansive. Today I want to briefly camp out on commercial slab lifting, specifically in a warehouse or “big box retailer” setting.
In either of the aforementioned areas, there is usually a form of traffic present at all hours of the day. This traffic consists of customers, vendors, and employees by way of foot traffic and equipment. A sunken slab in these settings can be costly in a few different ways.
The most obvious is the liability of a trip hazard created by cracked and sunken slabs. Second, and sometimes not as obvious, is the wear and tear on equipment that comes in contact with the sunken slab. Lastly and extremely relevant is the cost to stop production or close a section of a store for repairs. All of the above can cut into the bottom line of a business. Fear not my good friends; we have taken this into consideration when investing in our processes.
Enter the “mini rig”. Like its big brother, this little guy pumps our polyurethane lifting resins through a 3/8” hole which is inconspicuous and easy to divert traffic around while we perform repairs. Second, all necessary equipment is housed on a “cart” that can be maneuvered by human power throughout aisles and tight spaces. The best part? The noise level created by this rig maxes out at 60 db which allows us to work while people are present. Add that to the fact that our treated areas are ready for normal foot traffic within 15 minutes and that means you don’t have to stop production or “rope off an area” for very long.
