Epoxy Floor & Wall Systems
Seamless epoxy floor & wall systems are typically thermo-setting polymers formed by a chemical reaction between a resin and hardener. When blended together with color quartz, silica, or plastic flake aggregates, the result is a rigid and aesthetically pleasing product which is strong, durable, and bonds extremely well to all properly prepared substrates.
The applications for epoxy-based materials are extensive and can be provided with a very broad range of properties. Much like epoxy terrazzo, the color range is nearly limitless.
While epoxy floors and wall systems are generally known for their excellent adhesion, chemical resistance, and good-to-excellent mechanical properties, our products are also known for their simple maintenance, durability, seamlessness, and unique ability to inhibit growth of bacteria or fungus, making it a great choice for sanitary work environments.
Hard Surface Restoration
Historic buildings have lasting stonework, which over the years tend to accumulate imperfections and blemishes that spoil its original beauty. F&W leads the way in historic hard surface restorations. Preservation of these once beautiful finishes requires the special care of a company that holds the experience and technical knowledge of the latest restoration methods.
Most terrazzo and natural stone surfaces can be restored back to the quality of the day they were installed, which would include the removal of scratches, stains, and pits. F&W offers restoration and repair services of all types of natural stone and terrazzo. Let F&W bring your stone finishes back to life !
Stair Nosings & Tactile Warnings
Stair nosing’s and tactile warnings are generally required by today’s building codes. With current technologies, there are many options to consider when looking at safety nosing’s / tactile warnings.
Stair nosing’s not only protect the edge of the stair tread while improving safety, the products available in the industry of today are aesthetically pleasing and often complement the design of the space. TWSI contribute towards extending the life of the floor finish since they distribute the impact and abrasion from constant foot traffic. Nosing’s are available in a wide range of finishes and colour options, from moderate to heavy-duty anti-slip, and for both indoor or outdoor applications.
Tactile warnings provide a detectable warning surface to pedestrians before entering into a potentially hazardous environment. Typically utilized on approach to staircases, or leading into a vehicular path if the walk-way is not separated by curbs, railings, or other elements between pedestrian area’s and vehicle traffic. With the warnings being incorporated directly into your hard surface walkways, tactile surfaces offer a clean custom appearance.
Thin & Large Porcelain Panels
Thin and large porcelain panels are revolutionizing the traditional hard surfaces industry. Panels as large as 5’ x 12’ are being used on projects large and small, in both commercial and residential markets. With a reduced thickness and high technical performance, large panel porcelain are suitable for nearly every design vision. With manufacturers technology advances, most porcelain panels are candidate to be laid on floors and walls over nearly every type of material without the need to demolish the existing surface, thus reducing time and costs.
F&W has extensive experience and all the necessary tools-of-the-trade to deliver your next large panel porcelain application. Consider this revolutionary product for your next design.
Underlayments & Overlayments
A concrete underlayment is a mortar or self-leveling topping applied to new or existing concrete substrates or properly prepared conventional residential subfloors in order to provide a flat sub-floor prior to the installation of the final floor finish.
A concrete overlayment is a mortar or self-leveling topping applied to a new or existing concrete substrates to provide a flat, uncovered, stand alone finished floor surface.
Concrete underlayments and overlayments provide a versatile surface capable of repairing, restoring, and resurfacing damaged or uneven concrete; leaving a smooth, flat, and consistent surface that generally will not shrink, crack, or spall; and an economical cost-effective alternative to costly concrete replacement.
Polyurethane cement-based flooring systems are the product of choice for plant managers and specifiers due to their excellent resistance to corrosion, thermal stresses, abrasions, impacts, and chemical attacks. These heavy duty toppings are extremely durable and can be installed with a textured slip-resistant finish.
Polyurethane floors offer perfectly seamless surfaces with an extremely limited inclusion of joints, to avoid areas where dirt and bacteria may collect. Easy to clean, and resistant to frequent washing, safe, functional, and quick to install thanks to the use of specific, latest-technology resinous materials.
Polyurethane floor systems offer surfaces that are medium duty, heavy duty, self-leveling, vertical grade, and textured anti-slip. While typically used in all facets of commercial kitchens, food processing facilities, chemical processing plants, and other commonly wet areas; there are very few limitations to their use!
F&W specializes in complex and challenging projects such as swimming pools, aquatic facilities, and other areas that are constantly submerged or exposed to vast amounts of water.
