What is a Coving?
A coving is a curved border at the junction between the floor and the wall in a room. We use it to create a seamless transition between the two surfaces and to cover any gaps or irregularities between them. At AmeriCote, we recommend using AmeriCove, made with a high-density polyurethane composite resin that is flexible but highly durable for commercial flooring. AmeriCove offers superior performance compared to other cove products. It will not rot, swell, or deteriorate over time and is ideal for indoor or outdoor use.
Hand-trowled coving is not only extremely time-consuming, but it can leave you with an inconsistent finished product. Using AmeriCove, you can be sure that your cove base is perfectly formed around the entire perimeter and installed in a fraction of the time.
4 Important Reasons for Commercial Flooring
Coving is an essential element of commercial flooring as it helps to create a functional, hygienic, and safe environment for people to work and do business in. There are several reasons why coving is essential for commercial flooring:
With AmeriCove, it adds a finished, polished look to your warehouse flooring, making it look more professional and well-maintained.
Coving helps to protect the walls from damage caused by foot traffic and equipment, especially for epoxy floors, as it acts as a buffer between the two surfaces.
Coving helps to prevent the buildup of dirt and bacteria at the junction between the floor and the wall, as it forms a continuous surface that is easy to clean.
Coving can also help to prevent accidents by eliminating tripping hazards at the junction between the floor and the wall.
What Everybody Ought to Know About Industrial and Commercial Regulations Requiring Floor Coving?
Several industrial and commercial regulations may require floor coving in certain situations. For example:
· Building Codes
It may require coving in commercial and industrial buildings to ensure that the building is safe and meets specific standards. The regulations we follow require that industrial floor coatings in assembly areas be sloped to the walls to facilitate drainage. Coving with AmeriCote can help to meet this requirement by providing a smooth transition between the floor and the wall.
· Food Safety Regulations
Coving is often required in the commercial food industry to meet food safety regulations. This is because coving helps to prevent the buildup of dirt and bacteria at the junction between the floor and the wall, which can be a potential source of contamination.
Overall, the use of medical-grade epoxy flooring coving in industrial and commercial settings is often required by regulations to ensure the safety and health of workers and the general public. Get in touch with us to learn about coving for commercial buildings!
