INITIATIVE – INSIGHT – SPECIFICATION
“Design professionals, owners and contractors need someone who is willing to take the initiative in making the connection for sharing solutions for sustainable concrete flooring for architects, showing insight and providing the needed specifications. In short, with all the products needed on a project it is essential to have someone “giving the direction you need”.
EXPANSIVE COMPONENTS – ISOTOPIC REINFORCEMENT – INTEGRALLY TROWLED
In new construction, Green Umbrella starts by recommending expansive components for “the canvas” or concrete. We begin by helping the designer specify a mix design to create a substrate that will fit the unique needs of polished concrete. Even if your concrete will not be exposed and will have other finishes and floor coverings, giving attention to “the canvas” will promote savings and quality in later stages of construction. Modern fiber technology reduces or eliminates plastic cracking using isotropic reinforcement. The option of finishing with an integrally trowled placement system cuts labor, down-time and environmental impact.
TRAINING- BEST PRACTICE – EDUCATION
A process is not purchased, it is trained. Often it is simply identified as best practice. Green Umbrella for nearly 15 years has focused on education our craftsman.
PH-NEUTRAL – NON-RESINOUS POLYMER – INSOLUBLE
Our concrete treatments fit with one another, reduce labor, downtime and environmental impact. Our flagship Treatments are 100% reactive, non-resinous polymers, and pH-neutral when possible. Much of this is accomplished through the use of a family of formulations that is unique to the industry. The Green Umbrella line of densifiers are insoluble and do not contribute to alkali-silica reaction (ASR). Because Green Umbrella Treatments are pH neutral they provide a barrier in resisting surface colorant “walk off”. Green Umbrella has iron oxides, dyes and micro-pigments designed for indoor or outdoor use with UV stability needs consideration.
INCREASED PRODUCTIVITY – REDUCED LABOR – QUALATATIVE RESULTS
All Green Umbrella equipment has been engineered or selected to achieve our goals to cut labor, cut downtime and reduce environmental impact. Our flagship concrete grinder, the StoneExtreme is capable of producing the largest number of completed square feet per abrasive, per hour, in the entire grinding equipment industry. Zero issues to cut wet or polish dry, one machine does it all. The use of propane powered equipment increases productivity and reduces hidden expenses.
COMMITMENT – UNDERSTANDING – CERTIFIED
Contractors commited to meeting specifications and producing a high quality product, Green Umbrella contractors understand and are certified in the mechanical process and treatment applications that create an architectural concrete floor.
