The Galician company Prosistemas has built the flattest flooring in the world in its category. Thanks to this, it has won the Golden Trowel Award in the World of Concrete 2015 USA, a fair held between 3 and 6 February in Las Vegas. With this award, the company has also beaten a new world record. Prosistemas is the first European company to receive this award. This success is the result of its expertise and permanent development of its products.
During 2014, the company built the flooring for a macro logistical platform of over 170,000 square metres for a major Galician textile and clothing company in Guadalajara-Madrid. Within this logistical compound, Prosistemas built a 70,000 square metres warehouse that now has the flattest flooring in the world in its category.
To win this Golden Trowel Award, which included a world levelling record, it was necessary to develop a specific concrete design that had a combination of special chemical admixtures. The automatic machines used in these floorings, among other mechanical resources, have played a major role: a laser-guided concrete spreader and compactor and the duster of high-capacity mechanic carpet. However, the most important things is the qualified human team of professionals in continuous on site training.
These floors were audited by the specific control laboratory Eurostick-Madrid, which identified the extraordinary results of the high Planimetry which were being achieved and encouraged the company to apply for the award.
Reducing noise pollution in the facilities and energy costs
The advantages of high planimetry flooring include the possibility to be able to pile up commodities at great heights with higher stability and safety, a significant reduction in the cost of forklifts servicing , reducing the operating time of the facility (collection, storage, transport…), reducing failures in orders due to bumps or poor planimetry, reducing the number of sick leave days, reducing noise pollution in the facilities, reducing energy costs owing directly to a high light reflection and practically maintenance-free jointless flooring.
