The past few years have seen a rise in the establishment of factories and industries. The reasons for these are manifold; the rise in globalization has occurred in concurrence with a rise in the population across the globe, this has given rise to demands in a range of industries from fashion to food to consumer products. As people came to realize what they have been missing in their lives through the advent of different media platforms, businesses to fulfill this void also grew. However, business does not grow overnight it is fuelled by long strides in technology and innovation which then help the growth of production. Industries and factories are the manufacturing hubs of any country and it is these that take the country forward into the next stage of advancement bringing about economical diversity.

The growth in industries also bring about a growth in the requirement of what the industry needs and these have to be fulfilled by a number of players in the economy. Industries have a huge requirement for electricity, raw material, and employees. This requirement may go down or up but it certainly never changes. Once you have an industry set up there is another aspect that makes a huge impact on how industry functions: Safety. Of all the requirements in industry safety is paramount. A simple mistake could lead to drastic consequences and most industrial disasters could have been avoided by taking into account the importance of safety. While saying so you can always rule out acts of nature as these cannot be predicted or controlled.

Industries have a varied range of temperatures depending on the product they are manufacturing; some have cold storages while some have temperatures in the high hundreds. This temperature variation makes it pretty hard for any kind of industry to have flooring which can withstand both ranges of temperature, thus recreating the flooring becomes a huge hole in the pocket expense for the company. Rubber Flooring for industries is the only flooring that can withstand temperatures ranges from -40 degrees to 150 degrees Celsius. This hardy nature of the flooring makes it a fantastic option for flooring for almost all kinds of industries, cold storage zones have a huge problem with flooring since they have to first use heavy equipment to move whatever it is they are going to put into the cold storage over a floor, this movement in-itself can damage the flooring. Moving is only half the job done, the flooring inside the cold storage can get damaged too due to the freezing temperatures being maintained.

Industrial Rubber flooring is available in three formats, rolls tiles, and mats. You can make a choice from a range of colors and thicknesses, the advisable thickness for installation of rubber flooring in industries is about 10 mm but you can opt-in for other higher levels of thicknesses as well. Color gives a certain amount of life to any place and industries are no different, with all the heavy work going on, installing flooring that has a soft color texture lends a certain amount of serenity to the surroundings. It also ups the design quotient in a place.

There are also Interlocking Rubber Flooring Tiles available which can be easily installed and removed; the benefits of these in an industrial setting are manifold:

1. Most industries have great lengths of wire traversing the entire floor from one to the other, the tiles can be installed on top of these and once you need to remove or shift the wire you can easily open up the interlock remove/shift the wire and put the tile back in its place again.

2. Wires going about on the floor can be an electric shock risk, rubber being a bad insulator of electricity can help insulate anyone walking on top of the flooring from any kind of electric shock. This creates a safe working environment instilling confidence in the employees that they are well looked after.

3. The tiles do not let water pool on the surface this allows them to keep the top surface dry providing a slip-proof environment.

The last feature of slip resistance is available in any rubber flooring format manufactured by Fab Floorings India. Most heavy equipment being used in industries can cause static electric shock, this shock can also occur from hanging lights and bulb cords. Rubber Flooring further provides insulation from these shocks.

Heavy machinery also leads to strong floor vibrations and rubber flooring has shock-absorbing capabilities which allow it to stop the floor of vibrations towards other places thereby providing insulation for vibrations, this particular fact is mostly overlooked by many flooring advisers even though it is quite an important one. When we talk about heavy machinery we must also discuss that moving around heavy machinery and equipment in an industry is quite a task and most floorings crumble under such pressure. Fab Flooring is a leading Rubber Flooring Tiles Manufacture and their rubber flooring can withstand stable pressures of about 1 to 3 tons and you can easily move equipment of about 5 tons on it. Stable pressure basically means if you have permanently placed equipment it can be between a range of 1 to 3 tons. This allows for the flooring below to be safe from any harm that can be brought about from the tremendous amount of pressure that heavy equipment exerts on the floor.

Industries are set up in various environments, from freeing sub-zero cold places to deserts to grassy meadows; you can find industries and factories in almost every place thinkable. The flooring in any of these aforementioned places will exhibit the temperature changes on its surface thus, creating a hot or cold atmosphere. For anyone working in such an environment heat or cold blazing from the floor can be a deterrent in performing their duties, Rubber insulates one from these sort of temperatures and keeps the flooring temperature intolerable limits, allowing everyone to go about their jobs without any hindrance. You could say that it provides a safe level of temperature insulation especially in cold environments where the flooring generally exhibits really cool surfaces.

Rubber flooring also has a certain cushioning effect it provides for the people working or standing on it, this comes as a huge relief for those who work while standing all day.  The cushioning effect is great for prolonging the life of your knees and ankles and helps in taking the pressure off the back, so you could say rubber insulates you from injuries in a way. Rubber-based flooring is also a noise insulator, most industries and factories have things falling down at various places, you also have tools that get dropped, even the general use of equipment causes a lot of fo noise and grinding against the floor. The noise-canceling effect keeps the noise at bay and also stops the grinding from taking place. Most of these places also have offices attached the noise can literally drive someone mad especially if there are trying to concentrate on their work, this noise insulation saves those working inside the office from the noise of those tools and equipment.
