A HTC SUPERFLOOR is so much more than just a natural and living surface. Look a little closer and you’ll discover the super powers that make your floor unique.
Step-by-step to your HTC Superfloor
When a concrete floor is cast the strongest material, the stone aggregate, settles below the surface leaving mainly cement at the upper surface.
The HTC Superfloor process entails mechanically enhancing a newly cast or existing concrete floor. The concrete is ground step-by-step according to a well-defined process for achieving the desired characteristics.
Your HTC Superfloor is there, just beneath the surface! You’ll get your first glimpse of it once
you grind away the top layer. Continue grinding and polishing to bring out its full luster. The more aggregate exposed, the stronger the floor.
Why so many people choose HTC Superfloor
- The original method, refined over the decades.
- On average 40% lower life cycle costs than with traditional flooring solutions.
- Works just as well for new floors as when renovating existing floors.
- The grinding process is entirely dry, without sludge or water.
- Extreme evenness means low vibrations.
- Minimal environmental impact.
- Easy to maintain.
A HTC SUPERFLOOR has a nearly unlimited service life and it can handle the toughest treatment imaginable. Concrete is 80–85% stone and sand, which means your HTC Superfloor is comparable to rock. Clean it in accordance with HTC’s recommendations, and little more will be needed in the way of maintenance.
Almost any environment
HTC Superfloor™ can be used almost anywhere. The naturally beautiful surface helps in creating a positive impression in shop environments, for example. Its durability and evenness are especially appreciated in factories and warehouses. The easily cleaned surface makes the floor a popular choice for schools, museums, shopping centers, airport terminals, gyms and other highly trafficked areas.
Resistance to wear
Up to 117% higher resistance to wear compared to untreated concrete
Multiple application areas
A HTC SUPERFLOOR™ is a very cost-effective solution – for the short term, long term and everything in between. The cost per square meter is surprisingly low, since the concrete is usually already in place. But HTC Superfloor™ is also a smart alternative for new construction since grinding can begin just 5–7 days after casting.
Your HTC Superfloor™ will always be super-easy to keep in like-new condition. The smartest way to keep your floor clean is to use a floor-cleaning machine with diamond pads. This not only cleans the floor, it micro-polishes it too using only water. Manual cleaning, such as with a vacuum cleaner or wet mop, also works well.
After several years, the floor gains a natural patina. If preferred, it can be polished to easily restore its original gloss. There is no practical limit as to how many times the process can be repeated.
HTC SUPERFLOOR™ IS A NATURAL FLOOR that creates a safe and secure working environment for many different activities. It produces no dust. It’s an extremely smooth and even surface to drive on. At the same time as it is slip-resistant, it complies with the highest standards for handling electrical equipment. When it comes to fire safety, it’s rated highest of all.
Resistant to slipping
Despite what many might believe, a highly polished HTC Superfloor™ is safer when it comes to avoiding slipping accidents than many other floors, even when wet. This means a safer and more comfortable working environment.
Sparkproof and fireproof
There are stringent demands in many operations for resistance to electrostatic discharge, ESD.
HTC Superfloor™ has been tested in accordance with EN 1815:1997, SS-EN 61340-5-1, IEC 61340-4-1 and complies with the American ANSI/ESD standard, which makes it an excellent floor even in sensitive environments. HTC Superfloor™ also meets the requirements of the highest EU fire safety classification per A1FL (96/603/EC), and is thus considered as fully fireproof.
The extremely smooth surface entails minimal vibrations when moving goods with forklifts, for example. This means a better working environment, with forklift operators, for example, being less exposed to vibrations. At the same time, it also reduces forklift wear and maintenance costs. A smooth concrete floor is a prerequisite for installation of high-bay storage systems, with their especially stringent demands on tolerances.
A HTC SUPERFLOOR™ can be one of the most sustainable components you choose for your building, both economically and environmentally. A concrete floor consists of entirely natural components – stone, sand, water and cement. Because the process is practically chemical-free compared to other flooring solutions for heavily trafficked environments, your HTC Superfloor™ is a good choice both for people and the environment.
Once you’ve decided on a HTC Superfloor™, your contractor will be working with something that is already on site – the concrete. The process consumes very little energy, either with new construction or renovation of an existing floor. No unnecessary transports, no demolition. Thanks to HTC’s efficient grinders and dust extractors with high-performance vacuuming, operations not directly affected can continue as usual.
