In our last blog post, we explored some of the reasons why quartz flooring is a preferred choice for warehouses. There are more reasons why quartz is great for warehouses, however, than we could fit in one blog post, so we’re continuing the discussion this month. Rikett Quartz Tiles are resilient, environmentally friendly, and cost-effective, making them an ideal choice for a traffic-heavy area like a warehouse.
Here are three more reasons why quartz flooring is an excellent choice for your warehouse.
In the hustle and bustle of a warehouse, maintenance should be straightforward. Quartz tiles require minimal effort to keep them looking their best. Regular sweeping and the occasional mopping are typically all that’s needed to maintain their appearance and functionality. With the addition of Rikettseal™ commercial grade polyurethane coating, your floor can last as long as your building with routine maintenance and basic upkeep. In the rare event that a tile does get damaged, quartz tiles can be replaced individually, eliminating the need for a costly and time-consuming floor overhaul.
Safety is paramount in any warehouse environment. Quartz tiles provide excellent traction, reducing the risk of slips and falls. This is especially crucial in areas prone to spills or where debris may accumulate. In areas where the floor is likely to be wet, such as near entrances, you can add mats both to protect the floor and prevent slips and falls.
Quartz is also safer than other materials from a health perspective. Non-porous quartz tiles do not absorb liquids or harbor bacteria, making them a hygienic choice for warehouses where cleanliness is essential.
Aesthetics and Environmental Impact
Just because it’s a warehouse, it doesn’t mean that it has been an unpleasant space to look at or work in. Quartz tiles come in various colors and patterns, allowing you to choose a style that suits your warehouse’s aesthetics. This can help with color-coding different sections or simply enhancing the overall look of your space.
Quartz flooring can also help reduce your environmental impact. Some quartz tiles are made from recycled materials, making them an eco-friendly option. If you have to remove and dispose of them, you can also recycle quartz tiles in most cases. Additionally, their longevity reduces the need for frequent replacements, aligning with sustainability goals.
