Why Commercial Grow Ops In Ontario Choose Polished Concrete
Now that cannabis growing is legal in Canada and Ontario commercial growing facilities are popping up all over. As this new market emerges entrepreneurs and companies are learning the best ways to supply better products and growing methods that reduce cost and produce higher yielding crops.
Why is Polished Concrete So Popular?
Highly Reflective Top Coating
Commercial cannabis growing facilities biggest expense would be related to the light required for photosynthesis to occur and plants to grow. Imagine if there was a way to increase the amount of ambient growing light from the floor option you choose. Concrete Fusion can install a highly reflective top coat on your concrete floor. Other floors would just absorb the light wasting energy and money. Our floor reflects the light back increasing ambient light and making your cannabis growing operation more efficient.
Self Leveling Screed For Proper Drainage
With heaters, water mains, misters and high humidity any commercial cannabis growing facility will need a floor that can drain excess water quickly. Concrete Fusions Agilia Screed A is a pumpable concrete coating that is naturally self-leveling. Using this product we can direct the water and funnel it to drain quickly rather than having puddles of water left to air dry. Installing channel drains around the facility is a great element to incorporate in your early designs. If you haven’t or are retrofitting we can help with poor slope and floor grades to assist with proper drainage.
Reduce Mold & Bacteria
Cannabis growing facilities require massive amounts of moisture and humidity for ideal growing conditions. These happen to also be ideal conditions for mold and bacteria growth. Since cannabis is made for ingestion, it is natural that mold and bacteria are not ideal. One of the huge advantages of our concrete top coating is its inability to grow mold and bacteria. The smooth monolithic design has no place for moisture to collect. Not to mention is incredibly easy to clean and disinfect without much effort or special machines. It’s obvious that any commercial growing facility would want to reduce any opportunity for mold or bacteria to grow and this is an area where Concrete Fusion can help.
Modern Retail Trends
Polished concrete is a trendy and modern style that is popular in modern home design and retail businesses as well. Retail stores looking to sell Cannabis need to have a clean and modern appearance in order to appeal to cannabis enthusiasts.
