22/05/2015 Delivering extraordinarily flat and level VNA floors

Superflat Very Narrow Aisle Warehouse Floors

Any Very Narrow Aisle Warehouse Floor needs to be three to four times flatter than conventional concrete floors!!

Experience shows that the grinding method to be disclosed in this news post satisfies even the most demanding warehouse owners/users, and delivers an effectively operating Very Narrow Aisle Warehouse while allows for considerable cost savings.

22/09/2014 Straight edge simulation with D-Meter and F-Meter

Straight Edge Based Floor Tolerances

DIN 18202 is the most commonly specified floor tolerance standard in Europe. Period.
As you all know, it is a straight edge based method. A newly-developed software, that comes free of charge with every D-Meter and F-Meter, allows you to test floors for DIN 18202 without going through the trouble of actually using a straight edge.

19/09/2014 D-Meter and F-Meter measure all TR34 Floor Tolerances

Testing TR34 (4th edition) Floor Tolerances

This post is recommended to concrete flooring contractors who often have TR34 floor tolerances specified on their floor projects. DO NOT OPEN if you are not a firm believer in quality floor construction, you would only waste your time.

19/06/2013 Fmin - A realistic vehicle simulation system

Fmin Numbers, Part 3

The first narrow-strip superflat concrete floor was installed in 1976 by Armando (Sil) Silvestri, of Duron Ontario Ltd., Mississauga, Ontario, Canada, in a new 60,000-square-foot high-bay warehouse being built at the Bruce Nuclear Generating Station on Lake Huron. As soon as each new strip was finished, Sam Face would erect level taut wires next to the future turret truck wheel tracks and measure their profiles using the original profileograph. The resulting paper “EKG” tapes were then couriered back to me in Norfolk to analyze on a light table.

Fmin Numbers, Part 2

As discussed in last month’s column, my father Sam and I were outsiders to the slab installation business; concrete floors just happened to be the surfaces we coated and topped with plastic (thin polymer overlays). However, we asked ourselves: what’s missing? Cement masons had been placing and finishing concrete floors for a century, so why hadn’t someone already figured out how to make them flat, no less superflat?
