Three flooring solutions geared specially for ships

Choosing the right floor is very important, especially on a ship. Since the floor regularly gets exposed to (salt) water, heavy machines and work shoes, the flooring on a ship has to withstand more than regular indoor flooring. Not only are the floors used intensively, but they also have to meet strict safety requirements (IMO certification). This means the floors on a ship must comply with certain levels of sound insulation, moisture resistance and fire retardancy. Are you looking for a suitable floor for your ship? We would like to introduce three different flooring solutions specifically geared for ships.

  1. Epoxy or PU resin floor

Are you looking for a durable floor that is suitable for heavy mechanical and chemical loads? An epoxy or PU resin floor might be the solution for you! Applying an epoxy or PU floor is a labour-intensive process that requires applying multiple layers with varying drying times. With the expertise of Prolance Marine Flooring’s specialists, we can guarantee a strong and high-quality floor with a long lifespan.

Advantages of an epoxy or PU screed floor:

  • Very durable and wear resistant
  • Resistant to heavy loads
  • Long lifespan
  • Easy to maintain
  • Modern look
  • IMO certified
  1. Carpet

Carpet adds a warm and luxurious feeling to a ship’s interior. In the lounges and restaurants, luxury carpets are frequently installed due to the pleasant atmosphere it creates for the guests as well as the sound/noise absorbing aspects. Carpet comes in many different colours, materials and patterns. Whether you prefer a low or high pile, a woven or tufted carpet, at Prolance Marine Flooring we have a suitable solution for every need. Our range consists of more than 350 different types of carpet. We even offer the possibility to create your own unique design for a truly unique interior. With carpet, you can create a comfortable and pleasant space in an instant. For a complete makeover of the interior of your ship, Prolance Marine Flooring’s interior design team is happy to advise you on the best products and services for your specific wishes and requirements.

Advantages of carpet:

  • Comfortable and warm
  • Sound-absorbing, optimal acoustics
  • Attractive and colourful
  • Many different (custom-made) design options
  • IMO certified
  1. Rubber

A rubber floor is easy to maintain and suitable for intensive use. Rubber flooring solutions are functional, strong and durable. It is well worth the investment. Rubber is, after all, a sustainable and strong product. The possibilities in colour and design are endless. A rubber floor is the floor solution for intensive use and is also anti-skid. That is why rubber is also an excellent solution for a stairwell or in the galley. In addition to these advantages, rubber absorbs vibrations and sounds.

Advantages of rubber:

  • Strong and sustainable
  • Easy to maintain
  • Resistant to heavy loads
  • Repels dirt
  • Anti-skid
  • Sound absorbing
  • IMO certified
