SuperFlat Floor System Solutions
As part of an international conglomerate CoGri Group, CoGri Asia Ltd and CoGri Asia Pacific Pte Ltd can enviably count some of the world’s leading experts in flat floor technology as active team members. Their years of experience have driven our systematic approach to each flooring project.
The floor is one of three critical components in a narrow aisle warehouse. Floor, racks, and trucks must operate in unison for optimum warehousing productivity to be achieved.
With this in mind, we review and control these essential components, from inception to project completion:
- Design Review: In depth critique of the support system, reinforcing, member depths, and detailing to ensure the design is conducive to SuperFlat construction.
- Detail Design: Vetting of jointing, load transfer systems, and reinforcement distribution to ensure appropriate slab performance with respect to maintenance of high tolerance surfaces.
- Tolerance Review: We will review tolerance requirements throughout the facility, analysing the needs of each area. Review will cover storage system and material handling equipment requirements in relation to the floor. In most cases our recommendations for Defined Movement areas will be in accordance with TR34 2003 Table 4.3 and Free Movement areas to Table 4.2. All tolerance recommendations will be accompanied by compliance testing guidelines.Our objective always, is to provide a completed floor of sufficient tolerance to ensure maximum MHE productivity and warehouse throughput without costly over specification.
- Constructability: Our engineers will examine the floor design, specifications, and storage layout to assure that all are appropriate to high tolerance construction techniques required to deliver the desired floor quality.
- Materials: Concrete mix design requires special scrutiny. Variables such as climate, type and grading of aggregate, type of cement and admixtures greatly affect utility of concrete for high tolerance industrial flooring. Our staff will work closely with the consultant and concrete supplier to get the right mix.
- Building Environment: Constructing high tolerance floors must be done in a secure microclimate. Rain, wind, sunspots etc, can have serious and difficult to repair consequences. Achieving the right environment requires variation in conventional building and schedule methodology. The sooner we are involved, the faster we can resolve these issues to keep the building programme on track.
