Information & Support
Choose from highly durable epoxy or nearly indestructible MMA floor coatings.
Our Elevator Floor System is a customizable system of products created to meet or exceed the stringent demands placed upon a floor by heavily used elevators. Two general types of resin seamless floor coatings are offered as part of the system:
Self-leveling Epoxy Coating
Our Self-leveling Epoxy coating is a cost-effective and popular option for elevators. It meets the needs of industrial facilities, retail stores, luxury apartment buildings, and office space elevators. Multiple topcoat options are available in gloss, satin, or chemical-resistant finishes.
Methyl Methacrylate (MMA) Coating
MMA is the most hardwearing available option. MMA coatings are widely used in industrial and outdoor elevator applications. They're semi-flexible, so they withstand impacts and freeze-thaw conditions making them perfect for freight elevators, high-volume passenger elevators, manufacturing facility elevators, parking garage elevators, and outdoor lifts. Our Macrylex S26 topcoat is chemical-resistant and can take abuse from high volumes of traffic and heavy machinery and weight-bearing loads.
Difference between Epoxy and MMA based system
|Number of steps spread over 3 to 4 days||Installation steps can be completed in 1 or 2 days|
|Nearly odor free. Can be installed in occupied building||Need thorough ventilation system in occupied buildings|
|Material cost is less than MMA, but labor component may be more due to number of steps spread over 3 to 4 days||Material cost may be more than epoxy, but labor cost is less since the installation can be completed in 1 or 2 days.|
|Popular metallic epoxy systems can be incorporated for more designer looks||Suitable for freight or service elevators|
With either type of coating, decorative quartz aggregate can be added as a design option while providing anti-slip properties. Resin chips can also be added to either coating option. View the color charts below to see the options for the resin bodycoat, quartz, and color chips.
