FGS/PermaShine: Polished Concrete Floors Green Globe Credits
Following the Green Globes on-line predesign tool, the FGS/PermaShine Polished Concrete Floor System can have an impact on more than 80% of the sections within the rating system’s assessment areas, which are used to determine a building’s environmental and energy performance. This determination assumed a polished concrete system included a newly poured or existing concrete foundational slab, a certified installer to grind the slab, and application of one or more of the FGS/PermaShine family of products.
How polished concrete can save you thousands and add years of beauty to your concrete floor.
It is seldom that a concrete floor fails structurally, but they all suffer from the abuse of abrasion. In other words, all concrete floors, over time, will wear out.
Until now, these old, worn out concrete floors would have to be replaced, or at least have a topping applied to the surface. Repair and replacement processes are not only costly, but also require a lot of facility down time. A renovated or replaced concrete floor could be out of service for days or weeks.
Today, it's different. A worn concrete floor can be quickly resurfaced and returned to service in hours, not days or weeks. This new rejuvenation process is the diamond polishing of concrete floors, or, as we at L&M call it, FGS PermaShine Polished Concrete Floor System.
This Special Reprint from Concrete News explains how polished concrete adds years of great looks, low maintenance, and cost savings to new or existing concrete floors.
