Visitors were wowed when Superb Flooring, as part of the PMSA group of companies, recently displayed the full range of Husqvarna Floor Grinding and Polishing machinery at BIG 5 Johannesburg. The company held live grinding and polishing demonstrations showing the ease of operation and versatility of the Husqvarna machinery.

Revitalising a 3 decade old floor

Superb Flooring had done an outstanding job at rejuvenating the 27-year-old concrete floor in their exhibition stand area. This shows that even existing floors of almost 30 years can look like a masterpiece once the Husqvarna machinery has done its work.

The company strives to educate contractors, floor owners, specifiers, architects and engineers that not all polished concrete is created equal; there is only one Husqvarna Superfloor and it is the global standard in polished concrete.

3 steps to creating masterpieces

To create a Superfloor, there are several steps to follow:

  1. Start with a coarse diamond tool under your Husqvarna concrete grinding machine that can handle the removal of soft media from the top of the concrete surface. Usually, a 25-grit diamond tool can create a relatively smooth surface. If the concrete is quite rough and uneven, another coarser stage must be used to prepare the surface for the 25-grit.
  2. After the 25-grit tool has exposed the aggregate to the agreed level – and provided that the floor is flat – the next grinding stage is an 80-grit tool. This will remove the scratches left behind from previous stages. Be sure to remove all scratches before moving on to the next stage.
  3. Use a finer Diamond Tool, up to 3,000-grit tooling, until you have a mechanical gloss on the surface of the concrete.

Guaranteed long-life superior polished concrete floor

When a specifier asks for Husqvarna Superfloor, they will receive a long-life superior polished concrete floor.
