The rotating brushes attached to the scrubber dryer will slide across your surface in a fast scrubbing motion, removing residue and dirt, before sweeping up excess mess using its vacuum feature. Delivery and collection to and from sites around the United Kingdom make flooring machinery hire well worth your consideration.

Area Size And Surface Material

Within the Concept Flooring Technology range, we can provide scrubber dryers which are perfect for narrow halls, medium-sized rooms, or expansive commercial spaces.

If you are looking to hire a heavy duty walk-behind scrubber dryer for a mid-sized space, the Numatic TT4045 Scrubber Dryer is likely your best option, while the Numatic TRO650 Scrubber Dryer model is a ride-on machine better suited to larger areas.

The surface material you’re working with is certainly something worth considering when you’re looking to hire flooring machinery, with scrubber dryers able to maintain a hygienic interior as well as restore even the dirtiest of floors to an agreeable condition.

Client Needs And Consumables

Depending on the project at hand, you may have specific requirements with regards to the power output required from machinery, as well as the weight, battery capacity, and much more. If you require consumables to expand the capabilities of your appliance, Concept Flooring Technology can provide attachable sponge belts, nylon scrubbing brushes, and twister pads. For further insight into these options, just give us a call.

Concept Flooring Technology: Hire Your Heavy Duty Scrubber Or Efficient Heavy Duty Floor Cleaner

Though Concept Flooring Technology was founded over 20 years ago as a plant hire and contracting company, the decision was made in 2015 that it was time for the companies to split, and we have been excelling in our trade ever since.

We match clients with hire machines suited to their needs, be it preparation grinders for large concrete areas, floor planers and scabblers for smaller surfaces, or cleaning devices for that particularly impressive finish.

Having the right grinding and polishing machines for the job is essential when restoring any flooring, terrazzo included. To ensure you’re well-equipped, here is a short guide to the best machines for polishing terrazzo flooring.

What is terrazzo flooring?

Terrazzo is a composite material made by setting marble chippings into cement and is either poured in situ by hand or formed into blocks that can then be cut to size. First created in 16th century Italy, terrazzo flooring is still a popular choice in both commercial and domestic properties, with virtually unlimited colour and chipping material options available nowadays.

As well as being a hard-wearing and sustainable flooring choice, terrazzo is easy to maintain day-to-day: all you’ll need to clean it is a steam mop or nylon scrubbing brush. When cracks occur or general wear and tear becomes noticeable, terrazzo flooring will need more intensive maintenance. It can be restored using grinding and polishing machines like the ones we stock here at Concept Flooring Technology.

The best floor polishing machines for terrazzo flooring

Bitumen is a highly viscous liquid found in natural deposits or refined from petroleum. Bitumen is a highly popular material, used in the majority of road construction to act as a glue to bind aggregate particles together. It was also popularly used in commercial and domestic flooring until the 1980s when it was mixed with asbestos.

This was done because it was inexpensive, water resistant and fireproof. But with modern-day research, we now know how dangerous asbestos is to our health. Coupled with the fact that laying a new floor on top of old bitumen can cause a negative reaction to the new material, it is best to remove bitumen floors before looking to lay a new one.

Whether you’re renovating, altering the flooring within an office, or simply opting for a design overhaul on company premises, stripping machines are a convenient way to remove soft flooring. Previously installed flooring may even encounter problems so, whether you’re dealing with soft strip demolition or an adhesive sub layer failure, you will want to come up with a practical compromise, factoring in the unique nature of your situation.

With a selection of diamond floor grinders, floor levellers, polishing machines, and stripping appliances for seamless soft floor removal, Concept Flooring Technology are the specialists to trust. With years of industry experience and a friendly customer service team, we are well-equipped to guide you through the process of choosing the right stripping machine for your requirements.

What Does Soft Floor Removal Involve?

Soft floor removal will first involve removing the initial layer which is immediately visible to you, be that carpet, vinyl, rubber, LVT, wood or ceramic tiles. The most appropriate stripping machine for the task will depend on an array of factors, which may include the size of the area, the ventilation available, as well as the material(s) concerned.

Our tailored advice will likely come in useful when assessing which machine is right for the sublayers of your flooring, as we are experts in this area. The stripping machine we recommend will be determined by a number of factors, including:

  • Whether the material you’re trying to remove is laid on concrete or screed.
  • The thickness of applied adhesive.
  • Whether you want either a smooth or textured finish.

Floor Stripping Machines for Vinyl, Rubber, and More

We understand that each job is likely to come with different challenges, which is why we offer a number of hireable floor stripping machines for various contexts. Although we aim to give a detailed breakdown of the situations in which to use each appliance, don’t hesitate to give us a call for additional help.

Although the terms ‘concrete grinder’ and ‘concrete polisher’ are used almost interchangeably, these machines actually perform different jobs for different effects. It’s important that you understand the differences between the two in case you end up buying the wrong machine for your requirements.

This guide breaks down the differences between the two machines by looking at how they’re used in the workplace to achieve their desired effects.

What is Concrete Processing?

But first, you may be asking what is ‘concrete processing’? Both concrete grinding and concrete polishing are parts of this umbrella process. Essentially, concrete processing is returning a surface as close to its original state as possible by removing defects and resealing it. This process has a lot of steps and each must be meticulously followed in the right order to get the best results.

Concrete Grinding

A concrete polisher is the machine that’s used to wear and grind down the surface of concrete to expose its aggregate. This is done via a series of blades on the bottom of the concrete grinder which have different pads attached to them. These pads have varying abrasion levels and the grinding is done by starting with a coarser pad and gradually moving to one with a finer texture. This removes less and less of the top layer of the concrete each time to gradually achieve a smoother-looking finish.

Concrete grinding machines are particularly good at removing glues and coatings, smoothing out any irregularities in the surface, and preparing concrete slabs for new coverings and paints.

Concrete Polishing

A concrete polisher can be thought of as a finer version of the concrete grinder. This is because it follows the same steps as concrete grinding, only that it does this to achieve a smoother finish. The pads attached to the blades have tiny bits of diamond in them that rotate in a regular pattern to achieve a finish with the desired level of ‘shine.’

It’s after the application of the sealant, glue, or other top layer substance when the ‘shine’ will show after having polished to a fine degree. This is because less light is trapped by the aggregate and more is allowed to escape by bouncing from the smooth surface and reflecting back to you, appearing more shiny.

Although they both involve similar procedures, it’s important to recognise that concrete grinders and concrete polishers are different machines that have different effects. Where grinders focus on reducing the level of a surface in an efficient manner, polishers are more focused on achieving a uniform finish for a shinier look.

Concept Flooring Technology has a range of both machines in stock for you to hire. If you have any further questions about concrete grinders and polishers, or if you’d like to know about any of our other services, then don’t hesitate to get in touch by calling us on 01494 485952 today!

Ensuring that your facility uses the correct dust control machines can save you a lot of money in the long run. However, it’s important to understand how they work and which type of machine will be best suited to your requirements before purchasing one.

How Do Dust Control Machines Work?

In all construction sites dust is a health and safety risk as well as a risk to quality control. Not only can it be harmful to the quality of your work but it can also be harmful for your employees if they breathe it in or if it irritates their eyes.

To mitigate the amount of dust in the air during construction, dust control systems draw dust and particles from the air through a filter that collects this unwanted residue before discharging the purified air back into the surroundings.

More often than not, companies that make dust control machines create them to fit particular pieces of machinery. Although this means that the most optimal connection is made between the dust control machine and the plant machinery it’s attached to, it also means that compatibility is often a problem when trying to buy one. Thankfully, Concept Flooring Technology hosts a broad range of dust control machines to ensure that we have the appropriate solution for you.

Types of Dust Control Machines

Dust Extractor: Dust extractors work on the principle of high volume air travelling at a low velocity. This makes them good for higher quantities of dust and they have much larger tubes to avoid any blockages.

Wet Vacuum: In contrast to dust extractors, wet vacs use a low volume of air travelling at a higher velocity, making them ideal for smaller quantities of dust in a smaller surface area. The benefit of a wet vac is that liquids can also be vacuumed as well as dust, making them doubly useful in a lot of situations.

Air Scrubber: Air scrubbers are more passive ways of getting rid of dust in industrial settings. They use purification filters to remove contaminants in the air which is slowly circulated through the system. The fresh, clean air that is produced by the air scrubber is then released in its place.

Why You Should Use a Dust Control Machine

There are a number of benefits to using a dust control machine. Not only will they ensure that your equipment lasts longer but your employees will be working in a much safer and more comfortable environment. Both of these factors save your business money over the long term, making them a cost effective addition to the facility. The safety they provide will also make your business more attractive to potential investors and clients.

Not only do they keep your workplace safer for your employees but dust control machines can also save your business money in the long run. This is why it’s important to have them installed. This guide has explained exactly how they work and what different types are available in order to help you understand your specific requirements before making such an important purchase.

At Concept Flooring Technology we have a host of types of dust control machines and we are industry-leading experts in this field. If you have any further questions about dust control machines, or if you’d like to know about any of our other services, then don’t hesitate to get in touch with us by calling 01494 485952 today!

Many jobs require very specific pieces of equipment, whether this be a dust control machine, a handheld or pushed floor grinder, or some form of cleaning machine. These are often costly investments which makes hiring them a cost-effective solution in many circumstances. 

Not only can you try before you buy, but it saves you carrying around expensive equipment and having to maintain a fleet of machines that you don’t use very often.

Try Before You Buy

The other benefit of hiring equipment is that they give you the opportunity to try out different models before you buy them. More often than not, plant machinery is a costly upfront investment that generally comes with added costs and maintenance requirements. This makes it important to thoroughly consider whether or not you need a certain piece of equipment.

Hiring machinery for projects is a good way to do this. Not only do you get familiar with the piece of equipment you’re looking to buy, but you can compare it to other models and you’ll get a good idea of how much you’ll need to use it if you buy one.

Individual Projects

Hiring equipment is the perfect solution if you only need certain machines for very particular jobs a few times a year. As mentioned, some equipment is very expensive to buy outright, especially if it isn’t used that often. Rather than lugging around large, expensive pieces of equipment that can easily be damaged or stolen, hiring this equipment for short periods of time is a great alternative.

Especially if you can group these types of jobs so that they all fall in the same hire period, this is a very cost-effective way of using key equipment without having to buy it.

Less Worrying About Maintenance

A key factor that often slips peoples’ minds is that you also won’t need to bear any of the maintenance or insurance-related costs for the machinery. As they’re complex pieces of equipment, a lot of flooring vehicles have high maintenance costs. Meeting these costs is important to ensure that they work to the highest quality possible.

Hiring this equipment helps you to avoid these added costs. Not only this, but trusted hiring companies like Concept Flooring Technology are industry-leading experts. Hence, their maintenance will be far beyond anything that can be learned by somebody acquiring these machines for the first time.

With an endless amount of sales and offerings and a general emphasis on consumerism, it can be tempting to buy all the equipment you need for particular jobs. However, this can be a poor business decision. Instead, you should hire the same machinery and avoid incurring extra costs whilst also trying this machinery out thoroughly before you buy it.

Here at Concept Flooring Technology, we understand these benefits and seek to help your business make sensible decisions. If you have any further questions about our machine rental service, or would like to speak to us about our other products and services, then don’t hesitate to get in touch with us today by calling 01494 485952!

No matter what job you are undertaking, there are a variety of flooring machines available to hire that you can use for any job, big or small. Whether you need floor cleaner hire or sanding machine hire, a flooring equipment company will be able to rent out a range of machines that can help you get the job done safely and efficiently, while also being cost-effective. 

Here are the different types of machines available to hire:

Preparation floor grinders and sanders

One of the first steps of floor renovation is to prepare the floor using preparation floor grinders and opting to use sanding machine hire. These are used to strip down any surface level contamination and level the floor ready for other machines or products. Most preparation floor grinders will be multi-purpose and effective in removing old coatings as well as grinding and sanding. These grinders use a variety of blades such as diamonds to wear down the floor surface through spinning discs to buff away any surfaces or coatings.

The SPE DFG400 Grinder uses diamond discs to grind medium sized flooring areas. It’s perfect for the removal of old coatings or scarifying to remove oil/ dirt deposits. You can choose what size grinding blades you want depending on the job at hand. If the material is more abrasive such as clay and granite, you will require diamond blades with a soft bond in order to optimise the grinding process.

If you are undertaking a large industrial scale grinding project without access to electricity outlets such as grinding a car park or roof work then a machine such as the Blastrac BG250P Grinder will be a great machine for the job. This kind of preparation grinder runs on petrol so you don’t need to worry about finding power outlets. It’s also an aggressive grinder which works rapidly and effectively to help you cover large sections of floor surface.

It’s important to properly prepare the floor for the renovation so that it can be appropriately treated with the right coatings and overlays to finish the job. Sanding machine hire is also essential to ensure any previous paint or coatings are lifted before polishing or treatments are added.

Floor Scabbler

Floor Scabblers are used to remove surface-level paint or coatings, to add a decorative or textured coating to concrete or to prepare your concrete surface for sealing or grouting. It is a great way to remove contaminants, adhesives or markings prior to any further work you are going to undertake. It may also be necessary to use a floor scabbler if you are planning on creating a non-slip surface, perhaps in a warehouse or garage.

Floor scabblers work either by using petrol or electricity to power several cylinders known as drums which are loosely fitted with small cutting tips that rotate to grind down the concrete. Another type of scabbler uses compressed air to wear away at concrete with a hammering action, like many tiny jackhammers working simultaneously.

A floor scabbler is the best way to efficiently resurface concrete and prepare it for sealants and overlays, add a rough texture or remove surface imperfections. They are also beneficial for concrete levelling, if the pour of concrete was not level and needs to be, you can use a scabbler machine to level out the concrete. The same goes for concrete grading such as creating ramps for wheelchairs or to drain rainwater away from the house.

Here are the types of floor scabblers you may look to hire from a flooring equipment company:

Light-weight floor scabbler machines are best used for smaller areas that need grinding. The Airtec Rt2000 Scabbler is powered either by petrol or 110v and ideal for general purpose jobs such as removing rubber, coatings and adhesive. This machine comes fitted as standard with a tungsten tip flail drum. The flooring machine hire company can build the drum set up differently if you require the machine for a particular job, such as car park line removal.

For larger jobs that require more power, opt for something more heavy-duty such as the Airtec RM320 Planer. This planer is a self-propelled 320mm machine that is ideal for concrete reduction across large areas. This kind of machine is great for abrasion and grinding of concrete, asphalt, markings, level differences, rubber deposits, plastic coatings and dirt crusts and cutting of seams in concrete, milling of asphalt surfaces among many other things. This machine works through the use of rasping and milling wheels, loosely placed on a rotating work drum.

Scabbling is a fast, safe and cost-effective way to prepare concrete surfaces, perfect for preparing concrete for the next steps or making a concrete surface safer.

Floor grinder rental

Concrete grinders and concrete polishers are used as a finishing tool for floor restoration by using rotating discs of abrasive diamond to level and smooth out surfaces. You can hire concrete grinders as handheld or walk-behind and are powered by either gas, propane or electricity. You can use different pads to achieve a different finish, so whether you are levelling a floor or producing a high-shine finish to your concrete floor, there’s a different grinder for the job. 

Depending on the size of the floor you are planning on grinding, there are different types of grinder polishers. A handheld grinder such as the 180mm Hitachi G23SC3 is perfect for hard to reach places covering a small area, while still providing a heavy-duty grind for your concrete.

If you are looking to grind a slightly larger area you may choose something like the Blastrac BMG435 Grinder Polisher which is a walk-behind polishing machine. This machine is suitable for concrete, terrazzo and natural stone and can be used as both a grinder and polisher using a variety of both metal and diamond tooling. You can also hire machines specific for edges and hard to reach places. The HTC 270 Edger will help you perfectly grind tight and impractical areas of flooring, giving you the desired finish.

Using a concrete grinder polisher to finish your flooring will give you a beautiful and contemporary floor solution, perfect for a range of commercial and residential spaces. Grinding concrete with the appropriate machinery helps to improve the durability of the floor and give it an improved surface which looks brand new, without having to fork out a lot for a replacement floor.

Cleaning machines

If your flooring is already completed with grinding and polishing processes, then regular upkeep of the floor is important. Flooring machine hire companies will provide floor cleaner hire to help you stay on top of the maintenance of your flooring. Scrubber dryers are the best for this job as they clean and dry the floor in one pass over and help you to get the job done quickly and safely. Scrubber dryers can be hired as a walk-behind or sit-on, depending on your preference and what kind of floor cleaner hire you need. They work by using rotating brushes which rapidly deep clean the floor. The water residue is then collected by a system of squeegees and a vacuum, leaving the floor clean and dry.

The Numatic TRO650 Scrubber Dryer is a sit-on cleaning machine perfect for large areas that need regular cleaning. It has a 120 litre capacity and has 3.5 hours of running time so you can make sure every part of your floor gets cleaned.

If you are in need of a slightly smaller machine, the Numatic TT4045 Scrubber Dryer is ideal for exceptionally dirty and rough floors and has a 40 litre capacity.

Floor cleaner hire helps to save time, increase cleanliness and safety standards as well as being a more wallet-friendly option than the up-front costs of buying a machine for your business.

Machines for tile stripping

Besides grinding, there are many other machines for hire to help renovate your floor including stripping machines. These machines are suitable for pulling up a variety of materials including tiles, carpet and vinyl and offer a fast and effective option to remove any previous flooring.

The Blastrac BMS220 Stripping Machine uses stripping blades with a bevelled edge to pull up things like tiles and carpet. 

Floor grinding, polishing and sanding can be a messy job so floor machine hire companies will also hire out wet vacs and industrial vacuums for clean-up. With a wide variety available, it’s important to choose the right one for the job. The Nilfisk CFM S3 Dust Extractor helps to clear any dust or debris from your work space and has a 100 litre capacity as well as meeting asbestos requirements to keep you and your team safe.
