What is Coving?
Coving is an Epoxy Mortar installed to the Wall and Floor Junction to create a Radius, which is Seamlessly incorporated into the Floor System, that has been applied. This prevents Bacteria from Harboring in the Wall and Floor Junction.
Once installed, the Coving is coated with an Impervious Epoxy, Polyurethane or Decoflake™ Coating System.
Coving can be used in any of the following areas:
- Food & Beverage Production
- Commercial Kitchens
- Coolrooms & Freezers
- Wet areas
What type of Coving do I require?
Firstly, the Height of the Coving must Meet the Australian Standards and Local Council Requirements.
Coving Coolroom Panels with Aluminium Arrowhead
Due to the Differential Movement between the Coolroom Panel and the Concrete Substrate, an Aluminium Arrowhead (see pictures), is required. The Aluminium Arrowhead is fixed to the Coolroom Panel at the Required Height, prior to laying the Intended Floor System.
After following this procedure, the Epoxy Mortar will not Adhere to the Panel, thereby, allowing the Panel to move Independently, and Not Crack the Epoxy Cove.
Coving with Decoflake™finishes the Flooring System off to give a Highly Aesthetic Appearance.
Coving with Tiled Walls
The Wall Tiles should be installed Prior to the Flooring System and Coving being done. The Bottom Row of Wall Tiles, will need to be left at the Required Height of the Cove, and also allowing for the Thickness of the Intended Floor System. With the Wall Tiles in Place First, the Cove will be at the Correct Height, and Finish Flush with the Face of the Tile.
