Busy Warehouses Require Superior Flat and Level floors for Safety and Efficiency
Material Handling Efficiency and Safety starts with a correctly specified concrete floor profile tolerance to control the floor surface bumps and dips; more easily stated as flatness and levelness or ride-ability as controlled by F-number tolerances. Floor profile control needs to be addressed at the conception phase of the project with important emphasis on the end use of the facility.
Overlooking the simple issue will decrease the efficiency of material handling operations throughout the life of the facility; in addition to, lessening personnel safety and significantly decreasing the MHE (Material Handling Equipment) lifespan. In other words, affect the bottom line in the first order.
Our website provides information related to the concrete Floor Flatness, and Levelness and ride–ability; better known as FF, FL, and F–min, (F-numbers). F-numbers are the standards that control your material handling efficiency. Higher numbers give you high-efficiency, and increased safety. The converse is also true, low F-numbers translate to low efficiency, low Return On Investment, and decreased safety... and nobody wants or needs that.
