Stonhard Product Features

Abrasion Resistant

Abrasion Resistant

Given time, all floors will experience wear – scuffing, scratching and rubbing away of the surface. Abrasion resistance is the ability of a surface to stand up to wear and tear caused by foot and mechanical traffic and mechanical equipment. Some surfaces hold up better against abrasion than others.

Benefit highlights include:

  • Avoiding scuff and scratch marks that render a floor less attractive, especially in commercial environments and public spaces.
  • Standing up to abrasion due to heavy equipment and forklift traffic in manufacturing environments.
  • Saving time and money on floor repair or replacement due to a worn surface or unattractive look.
Antimicrobial

Antimicrobial

Anti-microbial floors and walls help block microorganisms, such as the growth of bacteria, fungi, and molds. Seamless, poured-in-place floors are naturally bacteriostatic and fungistatic because there are no seams, welds, or grout lines where bacteria can harbor and potentially grow. The seamless structure also makes the floor easier to clean, which supports anti-microbial efforts. Some industries value anti-microbial floors and walls as a part of infection control programs and stringent efforts to control harmful bacteria within their environments.

Benefit highlights include:

  • Inhibiting microbial and fungal growth as part of an organizations’ hygiene program.
  • Increasing protection against harmful bacteria where patients and staff are present or where food and beverage products are being produced.
  • Promoting clean and sanitary conditions.
  • Building a reputation as an organization that takes action against contaminants.
Chemical Resistant

Chemical Resistant

The quick destruction of floors, walls, and linings due to chemical attack cost companies time and money. Chemical-resistant flooring and lining systems contain properties that protect these areas from spills, splashes from acids, alkalis, solvents and other corrosive elements. Protection for harsh environments is crucial to their success.

Benefit highlights include:

  • Extending the functional life of floors, walls, and linings, thereby saving time and money in replacing the damaged materials.
  • Protecting the appearance of floors and walls against chemical stains.
  • Meeting environmental and safety standards in the case of tanks and containment areas.
East to Clean

Easy to Clean

Easy-to-clean floors and walls have properties that resist the absorption of material into the surface, making for less laborious process during cleanup. In addition, floors and walls that do not have seams or joints will not trap material and are therefore easier to clean.

Benefit highlights include:

  • Spending less time cleaning floors and walls in a busy environment.
  • Keeping floors and walls free from bacteria in order to meet infection control goals.
  • Avoiding accelerated wear from constant rough cleanup procedures.
  • Offering a manageable workload for employees responsible for maintenance.
  • Saving time and money on cleanup routines and procedures.
  • Providing a consistently clean environment for visitors.
Fast Installation

Fast Installation

Fast is a relative term. Generally, when we speak of a fast flooring installation, we are referring to a two-day or less time-frame. Some spaces require a quick installation and certain products are preferred in order to meet such deadlines.

Benefit highlights include:

  • Minimizing downtown for renovations.
  • Saving critical path time on new construction projects.
High Traffic

High Traffic

In areas where there is a constant flow of foot or equipment traffic, it is important to keep floors in working order. High-Traffic Flooring systems will stand up to constant use in busy areas for many years with minimal maintenance.

Benefit highlights include:

  • Minimizing disruption of business in busy areas due to floor replacement.
  • Keeping floors in good looking and operating condition despite constant use.
  • Saving money on frequent repairs or replacement of flooring material.
High-Impact Resistant

High-Impact Resistant

High-impact floors are durable and stand up to impact from other materials, whether they are dropped tools on manufacturing floors, scalpels on an operating room floor, or the unremitting tap from high heels. These types of impact will typically indent and gouge a floor or shorten its lifespan.

Benefit highlights include:

  • Avoiding holes, gouges, and indentations in the floor.
  • Keeping floors attractive, especially when they are in view of clients.
  • Saving money and time on the replacement of flooring areas or the entire floor.
Low Odour

Low Odour

Keeping odour to a minimum is an obvious consideration when installing any materials in industrial or commercial environments. Everyone wants to consider health and follow regulations in order to eliminate harm to personnel and limit the disruption of operations. When a floor is being installed it is imperative the installer takes all necessary precautions, knows the materials, and uses proper ventilation and equipment regardless of the materials.

Benefit highlights include:

  • Protecting the health of employees and visitors during installation.
  • Fewer distractions for employees due to chemical odours.
  • Advantages to installation in areas where ventilation is not optimal.
  • Avoiding costly shut-downs.
Resilient

Resilient

Resilient floors are polymer floors engineered for comfort, flexibility and design. You often hear resilient associated with vinyl tile, cork and rubber flooring and you will often find these types of surfaces in healthcare and educational environments. You can also find resiliency in seamless floors. Resilient floors are firm, but give or “bounce back” which make them the preferred choice of healthcare and education designers, planners and managers. Poured-in-place urethane floors possess less elasticity than other materials, but offer degrees of flexibility under foot, providing more comfort than many other hard surfaces.

Benefit highlights include:

  • Preventing slip-and-fall accidents which cause employees or visitors physical and/or emotional trauma.
  • Saving money on replacing easily-worn floors. Resilient floors are durable and long-lasting.
  • Providing an ergonomic standard of comfort under foot to keep employees healthier and happier.
  • Achieving noise-reduction in places like schools and public places.
  • Choosing a custom appearance — your choice of design, patterns, finishes, and colours.
 
Self Levelling

Self Levelling

Sometimes you will hear people discussing self-leveling floors. What does that really mean? A self-leveling floor is a liquid-rich floor that delivers a ‘look’ – an ultra-smooth, glossy surface. Several industries prefer self-leveling floors for protective and aesthetic reasons.

Benefit highlights include:

  • Achieving a sleek, high-gloss appearance.
  • Achieving a flat and level surface to achieve strict tolerances.
Slip Resistant

Slip Resistant

Slip-resistant flooring is flooring designed with material properties to help reduce slipperiness and increase traction. Extremely critical to protecting employees, customers, and visitors in both industrial and commercial facilities, slip-resistant flooring comes in a variety of finishes and textures specifically designed to reduce slippage on the flooring surface.

Benefit highlights include:

  • Preventing slip-and-fall accidents which cause employees or visitors physical and/or emotional trauma.
  • Preventing financial loss (e.g. liability payouts, legal fees, an increase to insurance premiums, increased administrative costs) related to the medical expenses of an injured person or lost work time of an employee.
Smooth Finish

Smooth Finish

Finish is an important design element for floor planners and decision-makers. Gloss or matte surfaces impact the look and feel of any environment. A smooth gloss floor will deliver a different appearance than a smooth matte finish. Think about light and the flow of an area from a design perspective. A smooth finish can also impact cleanability.

Benefit highlights include:

  • Cleaning made easier. With smooth-finish, seamless floors, the surface is flat and there are no joints where dirt can be trapped.
  • A desired, smooth appearance.
Sound Absorbing

Sound Absorbing

A sound-absorbing floor is designed with materials to absorb the sound waves that are transmitted when hard objects come in contact with its surface. Without special consideration to the flooring material, some flooring will amplify even small sounds, creating distraction and an unappealing acoustical environment. Seamless, resinous floors can positively influence acoustics without sacrificing durability and function.

Benefit highlights include:

  • Providing a comfortable and desirable environment for people to work, recover and concentrate, especially in hospitals and schools.
  • Reducing distractions in work and study environments, increasing productivity.
  • Providing a healthier environment for employees. Noise can contribute to high blood pressure and other ailments. Sound-absorbing floors are also resilient, making them easier to walk on, offering an ergonomic benefit as well.
Stain Resistant

Stain Resistant

Stain-Resistant floors and walls are formulated to withstand permanent discolouration that occurs when their surfaces come into contact with liquids or materials.

Benefit highlights include:

  • Protecting surfaces from unsightly stains that can affect how your environment is viewed by customers, visitors, and those who work in the environment every day.
  • Making clean up easy and fast for staff.
  • Saving money and time on the replacement or repair of stained surfaces.
Sustainable | Ecofriendly

Sustainable | Ecofriendly

Sustainable or Eco-Friendly floors utilize sustainable and/or recycled materials. Floors can also be considered eco-friendly based on the disposal of the materials upon replacement. Poured-in-place, seamless floors are part of the building’s structure, unlike many other products. Installing sustainable/eco-friendly floors shows a commitment to the environment and allows businesses to meet with certain regulations.

Benefit highlights include:

  • Making a commitment to a healthier planet.
  • Meeting regulations and low emissions criteria.
  • Promoting the use of recycled or renewable materials.
Water Resistant

Water Resistant

Water-resistant floors are able to resist the penetration of water to some degree as they have properties that protect against water, but these floors are not waterproof, which is impervious to water. Water-resistant floors will likely survive an encounter with water, but it will depend on the amount of water and how often the contact occurs.

Benefit highlights include:

  • Protecting floors against damage and costly repairs.
  • Saving time due to replacement or repairs that would be needed without water-resistant flooring.
  • Protecting employees and visitors against safety hazards like buckled or broken floors.
Waterproof

Waterproof

Waterproof flooring systems are used in specific areas to protect equipment or the concrete beneath the waterproof membrane. The membrane can be epoxy or urethane-based. Certain areas need extra protection against water and moisture. Without this protection, repairs and replacement would be costly and unmanageable.

Benefit highlights include:

  • Protecting critical areas below water sources (e.g. computer server room below a mechanical room).
  • Protecting the surface against corrosive fluids as well as other harsh elements like sun and salts.
  • Reducing the absorption of water into concrete and thereby reducing cracking and breakdown.
  • Increasing the longevity of a structure.
  • Saving money on costly repairs, replacement, damaged equipment and lost time.
Wear Resistant

Wear Resistant

When evaluating flooring materials, wear resistance refers to the life of the floor. How will it hold up under foot and mechanical traffic? Will continuous use of the surface cause scuff and scratch marks? Some surfaces hold up better than others. Wear-resistant floors are specially formulated to stand up to harsh conditions and heavy traffic. They also stand up to dirt, grime, and routine cleanings. Many environments benefit from wear-resistant floors, especially those with heavy foot and equipment traffic.

Benefit highlights include:

  • Keeping floors attractive for many years without having to repair or replace.
  • Saving time and money due to the replacement or repair of a worn floor.
