High Performance Systems Performs Floor Installation for Electrical Generation Facility in New Jersey

This flooring project was completed for one of the largest electrical generation plants in New Jersey. More specifically the new flooring system would be installed in the machine shop of the facility. In the machine shop old generators and parts were refurbished which, required heavy machining equipment, forklifts, and a 50-ton hoist. Due to the heavy loads and substances required to complete daily machine shop operations, the floor needed to have excellent scratch, abrasion, impact and chemical resistance. To complete the project, High Performance Systems, a local resinous flooring contractor was hired to replace the existing 14,000 sq. ft. floor with a new epoxy system in 3 days. To avoid a plant shutdown, the project was scheduled to start on New Year’s Eve.
