Sam’s Clubs endure a large amount of wear and tear, not surprising considering their high volume of traffic. So in addition to regularly maintaining these floors with cleaners, scrubbers, etc., it is also prudent that spalls, cracks and joints are periodically repaired. Exposed Design Group prides itself on the ability to restore concrete floors in this very manner, as evidenced in the photo below.
The Project: a new Sam’s Club store in Burleson, TX
Main Materials Used: Metzger/McGuire MM-80 and RS88
A little bit of commentary…
In a high-traffic load setting like a Sam’s Club, MM-80 was the joint filler of choice for repairing the joints throughout the club’s sales area. The benefit of using MM-80 over other products is its ability to carry heavy loads on forklifts across floor joints. On the other hand, in the deli/food prep areas, Sam’s decided to use integrally colored concrete and RS88 polyurea. The benefits here include color choice and speed — how little time it took for the material to cure. As an installer, Exposed preferred the standard MM-80, as its crews could more easily fly through the store, shooting thousands of feet a day by hand. Then the next morning they shaved it off.
