Floor stabilisation and lifting with Geobear

Floor stabilisation and lifting with Geobear

Geobear is the UK leader in stabilisation and re-levelling of large facility floors. Where a concrete slab has dropped due to voids in the ground, or settled due to a weight burden Geobear has a technical solution that can be employed with minimal impact to business operations.

The process requires no major construction or excavation work and it can be completed incrementally, meaning only a small area of a floor needs to be closed off at any one time. Crucially, this means there is little to no impact on normal operations, businesses can continue as normal whilst Geobear methodically moves across a site to stabilise or lift the floor.

Geobear commonly work on sites that have high racking and use autonomous machines to move goods. The impact on racking alignment from slight movement in the floor levels is increased with the height, in some cases machines have been known to fail.  Their system uses precise laser monitoring to ensure the floor is brought back to within 0.25mm tolerance, thus enabling the continued use of autonomous machines.

The options for a busy site to deal with uneven floors are limited. Ceasing operations will have a large impact on the bottom line, which is why the major facility owners choose Geobear to implement a solution. They have worked on some of the largest spaces in the UK where they have stabilised and levelled up to 80,000 sq ft of concrete flooring.

Geobear have dust-free methods enabling them to work on any site, under any condition. They also provide stabilisation and releveling to slabs outside facilities which are impacting vehicle movement and have stabilised large rail based crane lifting machines.

They will provide a site visit anywhere in the UK and Ireland to give an assessment or propose a solution.
