Introducing Robot Floors

Warehousing is changing – Introducing Robot Floors.

As our insatiable appetite for online retail continues to grow, so are the companies supplying us.

E-commerce retailers are embarking on projects to move from traditional high bay racking systems to fully automated warehouses using AGV (automated guided vehicles) and ASRS (automated storage and retrieval systems).

Welcome to the world of Robot Floors!

What are Robot Floors?

Robot Floors are a unique, resin-based product that can be laid directly onto timber mezzanine decking and concrete substrates to create a seamless, abrasion-resistant, antistatic floor surface.

Warehouses are changing from conventional VNA with super high racking from ground to ceiling, using forklift trucks to move goods around, and collapsing the warehouse on its side.

Smaller multi-level mezzanines are being implemented with robots working 24/7 picking and packing.

How does it work?

Robotic AMRs and AGVs can pick, pack, or deliver products to pickers, making product delivery much faster with much fewer errors.

Robotics can also use AI (advanced intelligence) to automatically spot trends like increased sales of certain products and change the manufacturing and ordering process on the back end.

It can spot an influx in demand.

The robots start to move the location and storage of items so they can be picked and packed quickly.

It allows businesses to be more innovative and use AI to forecast, fill the warehouse, and sell more.

These big projects require companies to collaborate to ensure they work when they go live. eCommerce can not afford downtime.

Infrastructure Change

The move to robotics is a massive infrastructure change project.

It requires mezzanine systems, adequate power, fencing and protection systems, internet capabilities, sprinkler systems and, of course, flooring that can withstand constant AGV traffic.

But it is not just about floor levels and flatness.

It’s about floor finishes, antistatic qualities, abrasion factors, and smoothness with zero joints.

It provides incredibly hard-wearing floors with no sudden imperfections that will last the test of time.

Benefits of a Robot Floor

  • It provides proven protection of specific timber decks from the damage and wear caused by continuous AMR/AGV movements.
  • It can provide full protection from water.
  • It is non-dusting.
  • It is joint-free to keep robots on track.

Space is at a premium when order volumes escalate, and stock levels grow.

Robots help you manage increased demand by handling repetitive tasks, freeing up time for your employees to be more productive.

Installing a mezzanine buys you more capacity at far less cost and inconvenience than taking on new premises.

If you run out of room for product storage on your main floor, mezzanines allow you to expand up rather than out, making full use of your vertical space.

Robot-ready flooring is essential—its electrostatic resistance and anti-slip surface make it the perfect partner for a mezzanine setup.

Robots are more reliable and reduce the risk of errors, particularly when recruiting temporary labour at peak periods.

They are suitable for all manufacturing, production, retail and wholesale environments.
