Placing heavy machines on concrete floors without reinforcement is a workplace safety hazard. Industrial facility flooring undergoes a lot of daily wear and tear; large machinery is capable of damaging the very foundation if there is not adequate support. Vibrations for machine work can lead to concrete cracks or cause the machine to tilt off its axis. This can make operation dangerous if parts are no longer aligned correctly.
Machine base foundations are reinforced with meticulously laid rebar before we pour any concrete. The rebar allows the machine weight to be evenly distributed without placing too much force on a single spot.
Machine Base Flooring Replacement
If your company has been in business for years, the flooring under your machinery has likely weakened over time. The machine might begin to “sink” as the original flooring can no longer support the full weight. Or you may begin to notice cracks emanating from beneath the machine. This is all a result of the operating equipment damaging the ground it’s on including the building foundation.
A brand new, reinforced base for your machinery is the best replacement option. Dornbrook concrete contractors will handle every step of replacing your broken and damaged floor with a stronger foundation.
