The concrete in coolroom floors tends to be quite damaged by the extreme temperatures, which is why it needs a lot more preparation than the usual. Another difference between this system and our standard system is that a coolroom floor needs a much heavier non-slip profile so that a smooth ice crust cannot form on top, creating a major slip hazard.

Ideally the floor should be 8°C or above and the concrete should be dry. However, we understand that this isn’t always possible and there are solutions available to deal with lower temperatures.
This depends on the condensation and surface water in the room. If the surface water sits at a depth greater than the profile of the floor, the answer is obviously no.
If the floor is still wet when you go to lay down the flooring, is that OK?
No, the floor needs to be dry.
Is it possible to do a continuous floor from a kitchen into a blast freezer?
Yes, although at the threshold we would typically install a flexible joint to accommodate expansion and contraction of the two floors.
