Elegant Residential or Commercial Flooring image

Elegant Residential or Commercial Flooring

Elegant Residential or Commercial Flooring: It's Even Flood Proof Flooring.

Even the smallest flood can cause major damage to conventional residential or commercial flooring. So why not install a flood proof flooring system that can withstand minor flooding and water damage? A floor that at the same time can be elegant and beautiful or industrial and modern. It is available with flood proof flooring options from Elite Crete Systems and it can be much more cost effective than you think.

The flood proof flooring featured on this page was applied directly to an existing concrete surface that previously had tile installed. Total thickness of the finished new floor is less than 1/8" thick but don't fear wear and tear. These floors are tough. Tough enough to take vehicular traffic and even drive a forklift on them.

The floor below is what Elite Crete Systems refers to as a "Slate Trowel Down" without seams and was created with THIN-FINISH™ Pre-Mixed Overlay, colored with CHEM-STONE™ Reactive Stain and sealed and protected with E100-PT1™ 100% Solids Clear Epoxy and two coats of AUS-V™ Clear Urethane Top Coat.

Canadian Sports Hall of Fame: Hockey Rink Floor

Architects and designers of the Canada''s Sports Hall of Fame at Canadian Olympic Park in Calgary, Alberta, decided a hockey rink floor would be the best way to enhance their ice hockey exhibit. Calgary-based Hardscapes, Inc., completed the project at Canada''s Sports Hall of Fame museum in Calgary''s Canada Olympic Park, where they installed a HERMETIC'' Epoxy Floor using white E100-PT4'' 100% Solids Pigmented Epoxy and clear E100-UV1'' 100% Solids Clear Epoxy coatings to transform the floor of the hall of fames ice-hockey exhibit room into a virtual ice rink.

Don't let the beauty fool you. HERMETIC'' Epoxy Flooring Systems are actually industrial floor coatings typically installed in manufacturing facilities, warehouses and aircraft hangars where high performance is required to withstand heavy traffic. By blending colors with industrial floor coatings, these flooring systems have been more and more attractive to architects, designers and property owners for use in commercial and high end residential applications where a better floor is required.

Additional options for these type of floors:
  • Thicker repair systems for pitted concrete, holes or deteriorated expansion joints.
  • Standard and high performance NOVOLAC coatings for chemical containment or splash and spill areas.
  • Increased slip resistance for wet or other areas of concern.
  • Available in finishes ranging from: gloss, satin or fullt matte.

Better Than Polished Concrete image

Better Than Polished Concrete

Better Than Polished Concrete

Polished concrete has been relatively popular amongst specifiers and property owners the past several years and people are finding out that isn't always as durable or beneficial as advertised. Can it look nice? Sure, sometimes the look of polished concrete is great. But polished concrete does it wear and doesn't have the abrasion resistance that some people claim it does? No polished concrete isn't stain and chemical proof as some people claim.

An alternative? A fluid applied resinous based floor created with REFLECTOR'' Enhancer or HERMETIC™ Flooring Systems from Elite Crete Systems. The garage floor below was designed to give the look of a metallic ground polished concrete floor. However, the homeowner wanted it to be tougher, more abrasion resistance, easier to clean & maintain and ultimately as care free and long lasting as possible. Its not polished concrete but it is exactly what they wanted and received. He now says that people are as interested in his floor as they are his cars'

REFLECTOR™ Enhancer or HERMETIC™ Flooring Systems can achieve much higher levels of abrasion and chemical resistance once an additional coat of urethane such as AUS-V™ with aluminum oxide powder additive. The durability level is such greatly increased that this is becoming the norm and standard for commercial and industrial floors.

Even more options are available to bring additional performance benefits to the system such as; high chemical resistance, increased impact strength and long term resistance to UV exposure just to name a few. Contact an Elite Crete Systems technical representative to discuss all of the available options and which combination is best for your project.

Beautiful & Tough Floors: Automobile Dealership Showrooms

Architect, dealership owners and designers are learning that durable, more cost effective and unique flooring options are available from Elite Crete Systems. We even have industrial options for their service areas floors.

Design options range from the ever popular REFLECTOR™ Enhancer Flooring Systems to HERMETIC™ Flooring Systems to our polymer modified cementitious overlayments. Regardless of the choice, objectives are simple: durability, cost effectiveness and quick turn around. Any of the flooring choices the Elite Crete Systems offers easily meets those requirements.

With most of these floors, owners want something beautiful but somewhat neutral as to not take away from the automobiles that are on display. Earth tones tend to be more of the popular choice with subtle hue variances that might emulate the look of natural stone or aged concrete. Some opt for more of a metallic or shiny finish to enable the view of the bottom of the vehicles.

Additional options cane range from providing a non-slip finish to a satin or matte surface. Regardless, Elite Crete Systems can work with your designer or architect to engineer just the right floor for any automobile, motorcycle or watercraft dealership.

REFLECTOR Enhancer Flooring System in Church Hall

Elite Crete Systems reset the standard for custom, seamless commercial flooring with REFLECTOR™ Enhancer Flooring Systems. Over and estimated 10,000,000 square feet of REFLECTOR Enhancer Floors have been specified and installed over the past few years and demand continues to be as strong as ever.

Please don't call these "metallic" floors. As much as we hate to use the word, "metallic", once REFLECTOR Enhancer Flooring Systems were released, everyone tried jumping on the tend of success with the their own versions. However, ask anyone that has used or specified REFLECTOR™ Enhancer Flooring Systems and any of the imitations and they will tell you how much different REFLECTOR Enhancer is verses the others. Depth and visual texture are achieved naturally, not by adding solvents or spraying contaminants that change the chemical makeup and impact performance.

Strength, durability and longevity is achieved by the resin vehicle of choice; E100-PT1™, E100-UV1™ or better yet E100-VR1™. All of these resins are 100% solids and omit ZERO VOC's. These resins are expertly formulated to improve the sub-par natural performance characteristics:
  • Improved self leveling properties
  • Increased abrasion resistance
  • Greatly improved resistance to water spotting
  • Engineered advancements in adhesion promoters
  • Extremely abnormally high impact resistance
  • Exceptionally improved cured Shore D hardness

Although we don't expect specifiers or property owners to immediately see the benefits of the advancements in our formulation and engineering processes, contractors immediately see benefits from the moment they first begin to install and use these products.

Additional performance characteristics are available by the additional of clear urethane protective top coats. Ultra-finely ground metal can be added to increase the level of abrasion resistance to virtually un-see levels of performance.
