India is fast becoming a digital economy with smartphones and the internet reaching even the most remote areas. There is a boom in online shopping, which is driving the need for upscaling the logistics industry and increasing the need for more and more warehouses. In fact, warehousing has spiraled like never before, which in turn is impacting related industries, including flooring, which must be strong and durable enough to hold all types of loads.
Indus Floors India has recently completed the flooring of a warehouse project at Topline Logistics Park in Palwal, Haryana, which was developed by Ascendas-Firstspace. The flooring was designed by IIT Palakkad as a slab for two different load cases in point load of 60 kN and UDL of 60 kN/m2. The design was approved for a sub grade modulus of 0.06 N/mm3 as per the design document.
