Coving and Sloping

Marvelous Ideas Coving

Coving is a hand-troweled epoxy mortar that creates a seamless transition between the floor and wall. This troweled radius can vary in size to accommodate varying applications and creates a hygienic transition that is easy to clean; ideal for application on wet environments and areas where cleanliness is a priority.

Sloping is the process to increase the surface elevation of concrete in crucial areas, guiding or creating drainage for water away from a structure or building that could be flat or low in height compared to other areas of the concrete. If concrete doesn’t have proper sloping it can cause issues while performing recurring tasks like washing down a facility. Large problems can arise later down the road with structural damage created by stagnant water.

More About Coving and Sloping

How Coving Can Be Applied

Coving has unique ability to be integrated into seamless floor applications creating a virtual bathtub like base by being applied to the floor and wall joint before floor applications. If the facility already has a good standing floor coving can be done on top of an existing floor system on the floor and wall joint.

An experienced team of contractors is needed to be able to create a perfect seal between the transition. At Marvelous Ideas, we have over 20 years of experience for flooring applications to make sure a seamless transition between the floor and wall is achieved; Critical for industries with strict health and safety regulations for sanitation and sterilization such as the food and beverage industry and pharmaceutical industry.

Advantages of a Cove Base

  • Prevents water from going under the walls
  • In chemical containment applications contains the chemicals to the coved area
  • Makes it easy to clean and disinfect the edges of the floor
  • Does not allow bacteria or insects to hide under the wall
  • Gives the floor an attractive professional seamless look
  • Required by government officials in many food and pharmaceutical applications

Using an epoxy mortar we are able to create a coving and sloping base that matches your flooring colour to create a seamless look that fits perfectly.

Fixing Slope

The benefit with concrete is that if it does arise that the slope of a concrete slab is wrong it can be fixed without redoing and tearing out the concrete and pouring in concrete in. Once we analyze the facility and problem areas, an epoxy urethane grout is laid down with the correct angle of slope in the problem areas to create a proper drainage system for the facility.

The benefit with concrete is that if it does arise that the slope of a concrete slab is wrong it can be fixed without redoing and tearing out the concrete and pouring in concrete in. Once we analyze the facility and problem areas, a new trowlable grade epoxy or urethane grout mix can be trowelled down with the correct slope to create a proper drainage for the facility.
