Floor leveller covers rough with smooth

ROUGH concrete yards tend to result in feed sacks falling off forklift pallets, a mess and much cursing.

The problem is that little forklift tyres have a habit of picking out any surface blemish and magnifying it.

According to Warrington-based Industrial Floor Services (IFS), smoothing over those blemishes makes for swifter yard transport and can also be a low cost job.

The firm offers a levelling compound, Floorsaver Pourable Industrial Flooring, which is said to smooth over all areas of worn, tamped and pitted concrete. Curing time is just over one day, IFS claims.

Supplied in 30kg (66lb) packs, the levelling compound is priced at about £30 a pack (01925-220000).
