KEYFREIGHT WAREHOUSE, BEIRUT, LEBANON

CCL designed and installed the company’s SURFACE jointless flooring system at KeyFreight Warehousing’s newest facility in the port of Beirut.

The solution enabled KeyFreight Warehousing to introduce a very narrow aisle (VNA) racking system, which optimises capacity by reducing redundant space, ensuring the property delivers its maximum value.

To allow its extra tall racking and very narrow aisles, KeyFreight required a 1500 m2 floor that complies with ‘defined movement’ (DM) flatness specifications, thereby enabling VNA forklifts to operate efficiently and safely. CCL designed the solution and installed the SURFACE jointless flooring system onto the existing warehouse slab, ensuring a seamless, crack-free floor.

The SURFACE jointless flooring system leverages CCL’s expertise in post-tensioned concrete to provide a floor that delivers the strength and thin profile benefits of a PT slab.

These benefits have been combined with a perfectly flat and levelled floor with no joints or seams, achieved using advanced laser screed equipment and CCL’s experience. Finally, the floor was polished using specialist techniques, resulting in a dust-proof and highly abrasion-resistant finish.

The existing floor at the property was not suitable and CCL’s industry-leading SURFACE flooring specification transformed the asset, enabling it to deliver its full potential.

This was one of a number of SURFACE jointless flooring solutions designed and installed for logistics and industrial sector customers who need a hardwearing, seamless and perfectly flat floor for the safety and efficiency of sensitive equipment. As property and development land continue to escalate in price in strategic locations, we anticipate continuing high demand for SURFACE flooring to enable the introduction of space-optimising layouts.
