PRODUCTS & SERVICES

CONSULTING SERVICES FOR FLOORS

Design and specification help
We help owners, architects and engineers detail and specify all types of concrete floors.  We consult to ensure that the floor will meet the users’ needs at the lowest practical cost.

Interpretation of floor flatness tolerances
We help interpret and clarify floor flatness tolerances.  We work with all the main flatness specifications used around the world, including the ACI/ASTM F-number system, and the British TR 34 system.

On-site supervision
We consult to the builder/owner, contractors and engineers to advise, instruct and coach on all aspects of floor construction including superflat floors.  We teach contractors how to build high quality floors and we assist contractors to build better floors.

On-site contractor coaching and training
We work with contractors to plan, place and finish high quality floors, including superflat floors.

Measurement
We will measure floors with a Face®Dipstick®or a FACE®Consultants USA Profileograph or an ALL FLAT Profileograph.

Help with floor problems
We help owners and contractors solve floor problems, including poor flatness, excessive wear, crack repair and repair of deterioration at joints.  We also assist with poor specification and resolution.

Expert witness testimony
No-one likes to see a concrete floor problem end up in court or arbitration, but when it happens we can help with information and expert testimony.

FLOOR MEASUREMENT AND TESTING

Profile testing on defined-traffic floors
We use Profileographs to measure flatness and levelness on defined-traffic floors, such as F-min superflat floors in very-narrow-aisle (VNA) warehouses and including measurement to TR34 and to German DIN Standards.

Profile testing on random-traffic floors
We use the Dipstick®Floor Profiler to measure flatness and levelness on random-traffic floors.  We can test F-numbers, TR34 FM tolerances as well as other elevation tolerances.  We can also use the Dipstick® to simulate a 10 foot or 3 metre straight edge.

Wear testing (abrasion resistance)
We can test using equipment such as the Chaplin Abrasion Tester to measure a floor’s resistance to wear. 

Due diligence surveys
We investigate floors, new and old, for property buyers requiring floor condition assessments and repair methodology and options along with cost estimates. 

COMMERCIAL AND RETAIL FLOOR

We offer advice and support on construction of showroom and retail floors with special surface finishes (with and without shake on hardeners).
