Large distribution centers that use electric power to move goods need entire rooms to charge the batteries, which requires specialized lifts to replace batteries in the rack and pull freshly charged batteries. These lifts weigh up to 15,000 pounds, and acid escaping from the batteries can wreck a concrete floor. A Major International Retailer had been using thick, chemical- and wear-resistant floor coatings. These coatings can break down in a few years, requiring operations to close while old coatings are ground off the floor and new ones applied.

SilTanium has devised a creative way to eliminate this cost and downtime. After cleaning and neutralizing the floor, we install special poly sheeting, secure it into the concrete with stainless steel anchors, then seal the edges. All of this happens while the operation continues to run, sending goods out the door to keep stores stocked.
