Rarely does a week go by that our ScreedSaver machines aren’t on a Walmart floor somewhere in the world. Walmart set the standards years ago for flat floors demanding “super flat” for their facilities. They measure every floor for compliance with independent consultants.
Our BOSS 240 machine recently placed a floor for a new Walmart store in Houston, TX. Walmart hired two consultants to measure our floors. Our FL numbers ranged from 63 to 72 for the three days of screeding.
All Ligchine Screed machines are capable of achieving these flatness numbers, day in and day out, in “normal” operating mode. Higher FL numbers can be achieved by slowing down the boom return and/or increasing the overlap.
THE LIGCHINE CHALLENGE:
- Social Media constantly has people claiming high FL numbers on floors, often using lower end screeds than our boom machines. Before you accept their claims, please contact the publisher and ask them to share the independent test report with you. Our experience has been the data is never available to share. Makes you wonder...
