The concept of high planimetry of a pavement is associated with its degree of flatness. This property has a direct impact on the operation of the activity that takes place on the pavement.
It is in those industrial sectors in which the storage of products at great heights is where the surface regularity of a pavement becomes more relevant.
Transport and cargo equipment (AGV, LGV, AMR, trilateral VNA) need surfaces that meet planimetry requirements, allowing the transit of machines and their work at height without the forklift or the merchandise suffering damage due to displacement of load, falls or shocks.
In any industrial activity with storage at height, it is essential to provide special conditions for the flatness of the pavement that allow the correct transit and movement for which the installation has been designed.
Although a perfectly flat surface is impossible to achieve, surface regularity can be considerably improved so that traffic on the surface of the concrete pavement does not present longitudinal or transversal stability problems.
A poor leveling, both transversal and longitudinal, can cause the appearance of dynamic forces that imply the movement or fall of the load, or the collision with the racks when we talk about areas with guided traffic.
Depending on the use of the pavement, a distinction can be made between free traffic areas and guided traffic areas (narrow aisles), the latter being more critical since, in addition to the displacement of loads, impacts of the mast of the forklifts with the racks, this point being more critical the higher the working height.
There are multiple standards that define the requirements for vertical storage at high altitudes: DIN 15185, TR34, VDMA, ASTM, DIN 18202, EN15620, F numbers…
At DUROTEC we have specific state-of-the-art machinery for measuring and leveling concrete pavements. We treat concrete pavements adjusting them to the current most restrictive standards. We also have extensive experience in the application of densifiers, sealants and joint repair products that provide a perfect finish to the pavement.
