Resin Flooring for Domestic Kennels
There are various solutions for resin floor finishes in puppy & dog kennels, animal pens, and catteries. The least expensive option is to give the concrete slab a brushed coating at first lay and leave it like that. The drawback is that concrete is somewhat permeable and as the slab gets older it gets drier and more porous;
This way, animal urine, and water get absorbed by the top surface of the concrete. It then becomes hard to clean, leading to bad odour. The best solution for catteries, dog kennels, and animal pens is the Basic Resin Floor Paint. Once it is applied and cured, it is easy to clean and hose down. Like all resin floor coatings, it provides a clean finish that deters fungal or bacterial growth.
What are the benefits of resin flooring in kennels?
Compared to ordinary paint, an epoxy-covered floor is scratch-safe and less likely to chip or split under substantial use, so domestic animals of all sizes can play on the floors, for a long time, without damaging them.
The life expectancy of an epoxy floor coating depends on various ecological factors, yet it can keep going for five to ten years before requiring re-application.

Applies over existing concrete
Odds are your building includes a concrete slab. One of the benefits of an epoxy finish is that it can be directly applied to the concrete, and doesn’t require extra materials or hard labor (for example, the application of grout tiles).
It is important to point out here that resin flooring installation requires adequate surface preparation and enough time to dry for it to bond properly with your floor. Moreover, like any other flooring installation, the absence of animals is required during the application of the epoxy coating.
Colorful and Friendly
It can be emotionally tough for pet owners when they leave their pets behind, so it’s essential to convey to clients that your kennel is fun and inviting, not stark and mechanical.
While epoxy coatings are exceedingly practical, they are gorgeous as well. You can browse various epoxy color choices and patterns like shimmering metallic and color flakes. Hues can be joined to make playful designs or even include helpful directional signs. Recall that dogs perceive colors differently from humans when selecting your designs. You’ll need to incorporate calming hues, for example, blue and green. Also, avoid the color white as it stresses dogs out.
Many people don’t consider concrete to be a permeable substance but the truth is that it contains numerous tiny pockets of air. Dog urine (since there’s no way to avoid mishaps with the many dogs) and spills can penetrate untreated concrete, and the spaces give room to viruses and bacteria to grow.
An epoxy coating creates an impenetrable barrier for fluids, keeping them on the outside of the floor where they can be wiped up. Some special epoxies even incorporate silver nitrate, an anti-microbial additive that represses the development of bacteria or infections.
