Dropped tools. Oil spills. Automotive work is hard on a floor.
Imagine an easy-to-clean shop floor that resists cracks, stains, and wear. Your customers are impressed with how professional it looks. Your techs love the nonslip texture that keeps them on their feet, even in wash bays.
When you walk through your shop, you’re thinking about how to fill your service bays. You’re thinking about your techs’ training. You’re thinking about your parts inventory.
You don’t need to think about how a cracked, stained floor looks to customers. Or whether you’re a dropped tool away from dented concrete. Or what kind of damage the chemicals seeping into the floor are doing to the building’s slab.
You can say goodbye to cracks and holes in your shop floor. Even uninstalled, Argelith tiles can withstand tons of pressure before breaking. Properly secured to the slab, they can take whatever weight, vibrations, or impacts you place on them. Some installations can even reinforce the strength of the slab.
Argelith tiles exceed industry standards for abrasion resistance. That not only means that our tiles are tough to scratch, but that they can handle the traffic of a busy service drive without wearing down.
Your shop is full of chemicals that can be a real threat to light flooring options. Argelith tiles are nonabsorbent – even immersed, they absorb about one-tenth of 1% of liquid – keeping chemicals on the surface where they can be cleaned away.
Ceramic is naturally inert – it does not react under chemical exposure. Acids, oil, and caustic substances don’t affect vitrified tile.
Even harsh detergents won’t damage your tile floor. A unique easy-clean finish baked onto the tiles keeps soil from sticking to the floor, so you can clean your shop to look like new.
A slip-resistant surface is a must in a business where oil, water, and other slick substances hit the floor. Keep your techs and your customers safe when they walk through your shop.
Tile is available in different levels of slip resistance to suit different areas of your shop. Slip resistance comes from a dimpled, orange-peel texture pressed into the surface of the tile, providing grip without grit.
Safety also means organizing your shop to keep people out of danger zones. You can mark your floors with paint or tape, but over time, those options will fade and wear off. Contrasting colors of tile, on the other hand, provide a permanent, vibrant visual cue.
If you’re tired of throwing money at floor repairs every few years, discover a long-term solution from the world’s largest and most trusted manufacturer of industrial tile. Your shop is hard on a floor. Discover a floor that’s even harder.
“The ability to clean so well it looks like you are walking into a new shop every morning makes our staff feel proud to come to work.”
