This concrete floor is suitable for a wide range of applications thanks to its extreme smoothness and lack of joints. It is a very functional and durable concrete floor with negligible load restrictions, and it requires hardly any maintenance. With a small modification, this floor can be given a liquid-repellent or liquid-proof finish. The liquid-proof floor can be delivered with a so-called VVV certificate (liquid-proof certificate). Van Berlo offers comprehensive solutions from engineering to execution and delivery.
Municipal yards, vehicle workshops, washing areas, scrap yards, gas stations.
The “Soil Protection Policy Paper”, drawn up on the basis of the Dutch Environmental Management Act, stipulates that preventive measures must be taken in places where industrial activities may pose a risk to the soil. These places may include municipal yards, vehicle workshops, washing areas, scrap yards or gas stations. Leaks could cause harmful substances to seep into the soil. A liquid-repellent or liquid-proof facility is therefore an important step towards keeping the environment clean.
Liquid-repellent and liquid-proof floors are not the same. A liquid-repellent floor can temporarily collect and retain liquids, whereas a liquid-proof floor offers longer protection. The type of floor you need depends on the work being carried out. If your floor is assessed as liquid-proof at the time of inspection, you will receive
a Liquid-proof Facility Certificate. This certificate is currently valid for six years, and allows you to demonstrate to the competent authority that your floor meets regulations. Van Berlo manufactures both liquid-repellent and liquid-proof floors according to the standards of the CUR65 recommendation and, if required, can provide you with sealant and certification.
This VB floor needs minimal maintenance, partly thanks to the use of sufficient reinforcement and the avoidance of joints. Repairs of imperfections are only necessary if these hinder normal use of the floor, and are part of its normal maintenance.
