Introducing Fortelock Industry

Fortelock Industry is mainly used in production and warehouse premises. The Fortelock tiles are ideal for all kind of facilities in the industrial domain like mechanical engineering, pharmacies, or in warehouses and dispatches, because all those places require placing an emphasis on functional properties, such as resistance, durability and stability. The Fortelock Industry flooring is a series for the heaviest load. It is made from highly resistant homogenous 100% PVC material in the thickness of 7mm. The production of Fortelock Industry is provided using state-of-the-art technologies on energy-saving injection moulding presses. This creates a highly resistant flooring material designed for heavy and repeated loads, also with excellent chemical resistance. The Fortelock floor is designed to create floor finish with a high operating load that requires off-standard resistance in abrasion, resistance to impacts and fluid absorption (oil, solvents, and so on).

Test: BCA Method Abrasion Test

The floors installed in every facility correspond to the specific requirements of the environment. One of the requirements is the resistance of the surface of the floor loaded during regular operation. In order to simulate this phenomenon, we used the BCA method that lets us mimic the long-term process of operation in an accelerated manner.

The machine was assembled precisely according to CSN EN 13892-4. The static part of the machine leans against the tested surface and creates a slide-way for the shaft of the dynamic part. Thanks to the dynamic part of the machine, which includes steel wheels, regular operation is presented. The three abrasive wheels describe a circle and their effect grinds a track. The depth of the track is inversely proportional to the surface resistance after a specific number of revolutions.

The value implies that the PVC Fortelock tiling is a highly resistant flooring material.

The greatest advantage of the BCA method lies in the measuring of a real floor and the possibility to directly assess the quality of the workmanship.

Colors and Patterns of Fortelock Industry

The Fortelock Industry flooring is available in many colours and patterns. Thanks to the universal lock, you can mix any colours and create work zones, passages, areas etc. The floor patterns are specifically designed not only to put the finishing touch to the surroundings, but also to improve the parameters of the floor, e.g. with regard to slip resistance.

The Fortelock system can be applied to new and old foundations of various quality. The floor installation does not require any gluing to the original surface. The bottom part of the tile includes a system of drain channels that ventilate the floor and thus prevent the occurrence of moulds and decay under the floor and the surrounding walls.

The fixed locks provide for a smooth and safe passage of fork-lift trucks.
