Floor Upgrade to Toyota Distribution Centre
After years of use, areas of the existing concrete floor coating at the Toyota® Parts Distribution Centre in Vancouver, B.C, had worn through and was in need of restoration. Toyota had a long-time concrete floor repair partner, Roselli Construction, to evaluate the floor and make a recommendation. There was a big challenge in this project, as they would only have the weekend to do the concrete floor work.
At that time Roselli discovered LATICRETE SPARTACOTE® concrete coating systems. They installed a mock-up area around a loading bay and coated industrial traffic lines, and Toyota ran industrial traffic over it (Forklifts, pallet jacks etc) to test the floor for months. After Toyota was satisfied with the coatings test area, they gave the Roselli team the go-ahead to do the entire industrial floor.
Roselli has completed around 2,323m2 so far, with another 5,574m2 to coat, and the crew does around 465m2 each weekend – including both the prep of the substrate and coatings. SPARTACOTE FLEX SB™ clear coating system was used over bare concrete, prepared to a CSP 2, and a special tint base was made (“Toyota green”) for the facility’s walkways and the safety lines.
Toyota had expressed they were happy with the progress on the floor and love the durability on the SPARTACOTE coating, as well as the fast turnaround time for their busy industrial environments. Read the full Project Spotlight here.
