Unlike other finishes of concrete flooring, dappled concrete when laid, is far more fluid and liquid. This is why it is the favoured option for laying across large areas such as large warehouses or other vast areas.
The Process of Laying Dappled Concrete Floors
The fluid concrete is poured into the area and using laser beam technology along with guide rails, the concrete is levelled across the area. A metal bar is lowered and raised through the concrete at right angles.
This process drives air from the concrete leaving a smooth surface, ideal for so many applications, both domestic and commercial.
Finishing the Dappled Concrete Floor
As with all concrete floor types and finishes, there are certain technical specifications that need to be met for a dappled concrete floor to provide a long-lasting, robust flooring solution;
The minimum depth for a dappled concrete floor is a recommended 75mm
Reinforcing is also needed with additional strength provided with a steel mesh or fibres, depending on the application and use
Drying time needs to be the maximum times possible but as a rule, we recommend a drying or curing time of 1mm per day
A dappled concrete floor has a pleasing finish but is also a suitable base layer for tiling or wood flooring
This type of concrete flooring is perfect for use in high footfall areas and is common in offices, schools, shops, modular buildings and so on.
