6,000 m2 of retail space renovated during ongoing operations
Efficient floor grinding technology and perfected dust reduction enable renovation without interrupting salestags: ApplicationsRenovation share:
Schwamborn, one of the leading manufacturers of state-of-the-art floor grinding machines, has been promising its customers systematic floor processing for over 85 years. In the meantime, an ever more perfected system has been created that ranges from covering removal and substrate preparation to almost perfect dust reduction. This made Schwamborn the first choice for the renovation of 6,000 m2 of retail space in the furniture store.
The work steps
In the first step, the floor covering consisting of PVC, linoleum and carpet was removed with a ride-on floor stripper. After that, the remaining filler and the epoxy resin coating had to be removed and the floor prepared for the new covering at the same time. With the Schwamborn DSM 800RC, a three-disc grinding machine that can be operated with remote control, this heavy work can be carried out with the greatest possible comfort for the operator. According to the motto of Schwamborn application technology "Hard soils, soft binding - soft soils hard binding" - the DSM 800RC was equipped with the new Schwamborn Giants C-SSC with a 20 grit. These powerful grinding diamonds of the "TripleA class" impress with their durability and thoroughness on large surfaces. “A set of grinding diamonds each had a tool life of 1,200 m2. The preparation of the substrate, including the removal of filler and epoxy resin, was carried out so efficiently in one grinding operation that the floor was pre-pared to mineral purity at the same time," emphasizes Ewald Wohlfart from Schwamborn Application Technology.
In this way, the furniture store was able to be fitted section by section with a floor covering made of polyolefin (wood look) in the shortest possible time while operations continued.
Perfected dust reduction
The full strength of the "Schwamborn system" is particularly evident in furniture stores with dust-sensitive exhibits, in which machines, diamond tools and the integrated dust extraction system are so perfectly coordinated that not only the floor can be renovated extremely efficiently, but also people and people Material remains largely dust-free. Thanks to high-performance dust separators, such as the STA 550 in this case in combination with the Schwamborn STS 750 industrial vacuum cleaner, this can be disposed of cleanly and without any problems with the least possible amount of waste,” says the experienced application engineer Wohlfart happily.
After the grinding, the floor was primed and the cracks in the subsoil were repaired with epoxy resin in accordance with the standards. Möbel Roller in Offenburg was able to enjoy a new, attractive and durable floor on its large sales area in a very short time.
