Why is compliance important?

Surface regularity can hugely impact a concrete floor’s serviceability, particularly in instances where high-lift materials handling equipment is used.

Concrete floors can be perfectly smooth but slightly sloping, or completely level but with an undulating surface. Inadequate surface regularity can significantly increase the risk of collision causing equipment to be operated at lower speeds and therefore allowing for inefficiencies in the workplace. Furthermore, operating high-lift materials handling equipment at height can increase the possibility of machinery toppling over due to surface irregularity at floor level causing a great margin of influence the further the distance from the floor.

Different surface regularity specifications can be required for each appropriate performance of the floor. This means that where, for example, high level storage racking is being undertaken in a very narrow aisle, the floor will require a flatness and levelness appropriate for a defined movement area. This specification would be different for a floor surface in a free movement area with low level and wide aisle racking installations and the ability for travel in any direction.
