9000m² of polished concrete floor made with one power trowel in only 2 weeks

It’s becoming ever so more popular to polish new industrial concrete and dry-shakes floors.  It has been the norm for flooring companies to focus only on making extremely hard floors with silicates or dry-shake hardeners, but now clients are requesting a concrete floor that is easier to maintain as well. With the Concria’s innovative concrete polishing system you can give them exactly that!

Suomen Betonilattiat, one of the largest concrete floor contractor in Finland, was the first company worldwide to use the Concria trowel polishing system in their own warehouse.

Antero Kuoppala, CEO and founder of Suomen Betonilattiat, understood immediately the logics behind this new system and the potential it had for his business. He decided to use the Concria TrowelPolish system in Tampere City Convention Center, and the project began only 3 weeks after the initial test.

They were supposed to do a 6 step polishing with a conventional 650 mm wide grinder (50#–1500#) and their calculations showed that they could make around 80 m² of finished floor per day.

–After the first week it become very clear to us that there is no reason to use conventional grinders anymore for new industrial concrete floors, because we could made over 2000 m² with the 6 step Concria system in only 2 days. New industrial concrete floor polishing cannot possibly be any easier or faster than the e  Concria TrowelPolish system., Kuoppala says.

–Furthermore, the big advantage is that we can make the entire concrete polishing process without any cords getting in the way, as our ride-on power trowels work with gasoline and the scrubber driers, for cleaning away the slurry, work with batteries. Previously when on a job, working with 11Kw floor grinders and 4Kw vacuums, we would waste a lot of time simply because of problems with electricity, Kuoppala continues.

High abrasion-resistant floors are not synonymous with ease of cleaning and this is the biggest reason as to why a new industrial concrete floor should be polished. Even though you can create concrete floors, which are extremely durable, it doesn’t mean that they are easy to clean – this is where the end-user can save a substantial amount of money after installation. Another great reason is the sustainability and eco-friendliness of the Concria sleeking system.

–I wholeheartedly recommend that all concrete flooring companies try this fantastic e  Concria TrowelPolish system and see for themselves how easy it to create better floors for their clients.

–Concria is certainly a system we will continue using as it’s easy and brings us a good profit, and because of the low cost of the system we are getting more work than ever before for polishing industrial concrete and dry-shake floors. In fact, we are even targeting some of our old customers with floors we have done years ago, to do refurbishment jobs, Mr. Kuoppala remarks before he goes on to do yet another job with the  Concria TrowelPolish system.
