There are many reasons retail and commercial businesses choose polished concrete, including:

  1. Beauty - contemporary and stunningly beautiful, polished concrete floors are second to none in their appearance. Often mistaken for marble due to its smooth, sleek surface, the aesthetics of polished concrete appeals to many modern businesses.
  2. Lifespan - there is simply no comparison to other flooring systems when it comes to the durability of a polished concrete floor. The polishing process hardens and seals the floor, adding decades to its lifespan.
  3. Stain resistant - once ground and polished, the density and strength of the concrete allows it to repel water, oil and other contaminants.
  4. Light - the reflective nature of polished concrete reduces the amount of artificial illumination needed to create a light, bright work environment, thereby improving your businesses energy efficiency.
  5. Safety - wet or dry, Cubic 8’s polished concrete flooring exceeds Occupational Health and Safety Standards in Australia as the friction coefficient is higher than many other flooring alternatives.
  6. Low maintenance - as oils and other liquids are repelled from permeating the concrete’s surface, maintenance is limited to regular cleaning.
  7. Limited downtime - as no toxic or hazardous chemicals are used in the preparation of the floor, businesses can often remain in full production throughout the installation or polishing process.
  8. Cost effective - polished concrete is one of the most economical, cost effective flooring alternatives on the market. The reduced costs associated with saved energy, reduced wear, limited maintenance, as well as its long lasting durability make polished concrete a wise and economical choice.
  9. Environment - concrete is a fundamental part of every construction project ‐ whether it’s a new construction or a remodel. Adding any extra material to a project results in greater expenditure and environmental impact. Finishing the floor by simply polishing the existing concrete decreases the environmental footprint of the project by eliminating the need for additional coverings.
