Refurb Paint

Caretakers will commonly repaint school facility floors out of term, or in the case of an impact accident (scrapes, scratches or unsightly blemishes) more often, and it is for these purposes that our medium use floor paints ‘save the day’. As opposed to heavy use paints, where large areas may need to be closed to blast the floors and prepare surfaces to be painted, a single pack paint can be chosen which is low odour and quick drying. For factories, warehouses and storage facilities many of these paints are fully tintable to a massive selection of RAL or British Standard (BS) paint colours. If you require a specific colour to match your company scheme, please contact us and we may be able to match what you require.

Shops and retail stores often need to seal off aisles for refurbishment every few months – most noticeably during inspection periods – and medium use paints allow for quick drying and low odour paint to be applied overnight, for use the following day.

The same is applicable for hospital and care-home wards, where refurbishment and decorating work is done on a rotating timescale. These paints suit the ‘need for speed’ in getting a quick turnaround with next-to-zero fuss on application times. There are specific paints for hygienic purposes too, perfect for health facilities, like doctor’s waiting areas, consultation rooms and chemists.

Water Based Floor Paints

Water based floor paints produce a very low odour, are non-flammable and dry by evaporation, which may be a necessity when painting floors in and around food facilities, where stock cannot be taken off-site. Canteens, cafes, restaurants and supermarket/shop storerooms would benefit greatly from bi-annual or annual paint coatings from those listed here. Paint additives can be added to these paints to add grip and anti-slip qualities to the finished coating.

Water based epoxy resin floor paints are becoming more popular, with more top brands producing them for the lower-to-mid markets, where budget and quick to apply paints are preferable. These high-performance floor paints contain low VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds) and can safely be used in ‘occupied areas’. With these epoxy products becoming simpler to use they are ideal for both commercial and domestic. Check out Rust-Oleum Epoxyshield Garage Floor Coating KitRust-Oleum Mathys Pegakote and Sikafloor 2540W.

How to Tell the Difference Between a Water Based and Solvent Based Paint

It’s usually one of the first things mentioned in the Technical Data Sheet for a product so check this first. But you should also be able to find information on the tin labels and as a tell-tale sign check what is recommended for cleaning equipment – this isn’t always fool proof but more often than not if the product is recommended to be cleaned with a solvent its solvent based and if it’s water they recommend its water based.

Other Types of Floor Paint

Rawlins Paints’ primary floor paints category contains more information about acrylic floor paints, epoxy floor paints, and further recommendations about anti-slip products. For those who are new to floor paints, it can be an overwhelming area to find the right paint for the job, which is why we have a specially trained technical advice team on hand by email or phone, who are happy to help you with your purchase, or offer application recommendations for specific situations, scenarios and locations.

Money Saving Floor Paints

Medium use floor paints are ideal for refurbs, or for tenants who are leaving premises and need a new ‘lick of paint’ to get the warehouse floor up to scratch. Rather than doing a full floor system installation, medium use floor paints are great for domestic and commercial building, council properties, as well as for private landlords who need quick solutions for cost sensitive projects. These paints can offer high coverage rates and withstand heavy footfall, but usually not vehicular use.

This section contains cheaper and more economic alternatives to 2 pack floor systems found in our Heavy Use Floor Paints section, but lower costs do not translate as lower quality products – just more practical products for lighter use tasks on tarmac surfaces, wood, asphalt, metal and concrete. Epoxy Ester Grade paint, for example, dustproofs, seals and transforms old and drab concrete floors to a mid-gloss finish. It is tough and durable, suitable for interior and exterior floors, with no primer required.

Some projects which suit paints from this section include garage floors, balconies, tennis courts, walkways, warehouses, manufacturing plants, disabled access paths, chalky finish floor paint for kitchens and bathrooms, low downtime market sectors where contractors are required to work out-of-hours and a quick return-to-service is required. A full spectrum or finishes and colours are available across the range to suit any project. 

Book a Site Visit for Large Floor Renovation and Refurbishment Projects

Painting floors with high-quality commercial or industrial coatings is much more cost effective and less disruptive to a project than using cheaper substitutes. Larger projects require some form of ‘guarantee’ for the client and/or building owner to provide peace of mind that the coating system applied to internal or external flooring will last for an agreed period of time - if correctly maintained.

Using our products, it is possible to decorate and protect concrete, tarmac, asphalt, wood or metal floors, both improving its life expectancy for greater periods of times, and delivering waterproofing and protective properties that can lower the risk of major repair and costly maintenance work. Achieve long-lasting results, with the wide range of floor paints and coatings available at Rawlins Paints today.

We offer systems that are available in virtually any colour and finish - including colour matching existing decorative or company colour schemes - in our light to medium (pedestrianised) right up to heavy use (light to medium vehicular activity) coatings for a wide range of interior or exterior substrates and surface materials.

A trained member of our Technical Support Team will visit your site and carry out a full inspection, write a tailored specification to meet your requirements and offer an approved contractor for the application. We will never offer a contractor that we have not trained and approved, all our contractors have successfully completed specific product training on the systems they apply and are monitored regularly to ensure the highest standard of quality is achieved.

By using one of our nationwide approved contractors for our products you enable yourself to take advantage of our guarantees, life expectancies and warranties. This means if we say our system is going to last a certain amount of time, or perform in a certain way and it doesn’t, you’re covered.
