Retail Space Rings Up Customers Throughout Renovations

Published: 23/3, 2023

The major challenge when renovating floors in large retail areas is to disrupt ongoing sales operations as little as possible. In furniture stores in particular, there is also the major challenge of working with as little dust as possible.

For that reason, Schwamborn, one of the leading manufacturers of state-of-the-art floor grinding machines, was the first choice for the renovation of a 64,583 ft2 (6,000 m2) furniture store sakes area in Offenburg, Germany.

In the first step, the floor covering consisting of PVC, linoleum, and carpet was removed with a ride-on floor stripper. A Schwamborn DSM 800RC, a three-disc grinding machine that can be operated with remote control, then carried out the heavy work of removing the remaining filler and epoxy resin coating.

The DSM 800RC was equipped with new Schwamborn Giants 20-grain C-SSC tooling. These powerful AAA-class grinding diamonds impress with their durability and thoroughness on large surfaces. A set of grinding diamonds, each with a tool life of 12,916 ft2 (1,200 m2) carried out the preparation of the substrate, including the removal of filler and epoxy resin so efficiently in one grinding operation that the floor was prepared to mineral purity at the same time. This allowed fast sectional installation of a new polyolefin floor covering while operations continued.

0The full strength of the Schwamborn system is particularly evident in furniture stores with dust-sensitive exhibits, in which machines, diamond tools and the integrated dust extraction system are so perfectly coordinated that not only the floor can be renovated extremely efficiently, but also keep the environment dust-free. Thanks to high-performance dust separators, such as the STA 550 in this case in combination with the Schwamborn STS 750 industrial vacuum cleaner, this can be disposed of cleanly and without any problems with the least possible amount of waste.

After the grinding, the floor was primed and the cracks in the subsoil were repaired with epoxy resin in accordance with the standards. The furniture store was able to enjoy a new, attractive, and durable floor on its large sales area in a very short time.
