Coating & Flooring Specialists for Growing Operations
Posted Jun 04, 2019 by Dave Scaturro
Alpine Painting is emerging as the leader in planning and installing high-performance flooring and wall coating systems specifically designed to meet the needs of growing and processing facilities. This work is the perfect compliment to the decades of painting & flooring success Alpine Painting has enjoyed serving the pharmaceutical industry.
Marijuana growing and processing facilities offer unique design and performance challenges that require great skill to successfully complete. In addition to new construction, many cannabis related projects involve re-purposing existing vacant facilities for cannabis cultivation and processing. When working with an existing facility, it is imperative that the existing conditions of the floors and walls are carefully investigated. For existing buildings, our experts complete a comprehensive site evaluation process to identify and locate conditions that must be corrected during the design process. The team then formulates cost-effective, customized solutions that are tailored to that specific project and structure.
In every cannabis-related project that Alpine undertakes, our professional team works closely with the project owners, architects, engineers, botanists, and grow room managers to provide informed guidance as to the specific flooring characteristics that are most beneficial for marijuana growing and processing operations. In most cannabis facilities, the use of a seamless polymer floor and cleanable waterbased epoxy wall systems are ideal, designed to be durable and easy to maintain. The seamless, moisture resistant aspects of the coating system, coupled with the ability to effectively and safely clean the environment, help to protect the valuable crop from dangers like bacteria, fungi and insects.
Alpine will also provide growing facilities with custom tailored flooring and wall coating solutions in a wide variety of colors and textures to fit any production requirement. Custom designed floor and wall solutions for growing cannabis provide many benefits, including:
- Highly reflective surfaces that maximize growth by increasing light available to plants
- Easy cleaning and maintenance
- Antimicrobial protection to ensure the health of plants and employees
- Improved floor durability and lifespan
- Thermal and chemical shock resistance
- USDA and FDA compliance
