Dockyard/Port Flooring requires a distinct type of material and technology to be used taking in consideration the effect of adverse seasons and different types of loads.
The possibility of the heavy traffic due to presense of heavy loading machinery and hydraulic loading cranes takes a toll on the flooring on any dockyard. The cost-effectiveness, as well as the rules and regulations of the dockyard in general should be taken into consideration. The dockyard must have access to roads, ports, airports, and must be situated as much as possible in a well-populated and relatively modern area.
The things which make or break this business is not all about the process which occurs in the terminal itself, but also about location. Factors such as parking spaces, docking bays, and areas of storage are often overlooked by companies using static facility planning. Do not make the mistake of overlooking it.
And of course, the right Flooring in the dockyard plays and important role. The emphasis on dockyard flooring has generally increased due to the modernization of building techniques. The quality and durability of a floor slab, as well as the floor flatness and the whole of the floor profile in general can decide for good or ill the whole process in a dockyard. The demand for flat floor of fine quality and flatness is now in high demand due to the rise of many new technologies which require larger structures. In response, logistics operators and warehouse owners are now willing to pay good money for exemplary flat floors of a good floor profile.
Since most logistics operations nowadays operate on a 27/7 basis, the pressure on flooring has been magnified by the massive throughput of goods. In order to resist the wear and tear of constant abuse, a good floor slab must require only minimum maintenance whilst providing flexibility and good output and performance.
To effectively design a floor for a dockyard, it is necessary to understand the properties which constitute a good floor profile. The materials which the floor is made out of is the key to ensuring that you have a good flat floor. A close examination of the concrete mixture and the fibre type and dosage will allow a warehouse operator to best evaluate which floors will be the perfect fit for the dockyard in question.
