Intertech Flooring Provides Official NASCAR Garage Floors
At Texas Motor Speedway®
Jan. 3, 2017, Dallas, TX— Intertech Commercial Flooring, the exclusive provider of the LATICRETE® SUPERCAP System of self-leveling underlayments and commercial flooring products in the Southwest, unveiled another state-of-the-art flooring project with the opening this fall of the renovated Official NASCAR garage space at Texas MotorSpeedway®.
Intertech, an award-winning provider of commercial flooring products, installation and maintenance throughout Texas and the Southwest, partnered with Texas Motor Speedway to install the new LATICRETE high-tech floors in the speedway’s two garage areas and tech bays, making LATICRETE SUPERCAP the “Official Garage Flooring System of Texas Motor Speedway.”
The new race-car garage floors were unveiled Nov. 4-6 at the AAA Texas 500 NASCAR® tripleheader weekend. The new floors, a first in NASCAR, cover 22,000 square feet (2044 m2) and house 48 individual service bays plus the Technical Service Inspection Station where every team sends their race-car for an intensive inspection before racing. The project included designing and installing more than 90 ft. of custom logo embedded in the resinous coating. The LATICRETE SUPERCAP System includes products designed specifically for commercial garages, warehouses and airplane hangars where performance is a factor because of elements like hot tires, hazardous fluids and the regular use of heavy equipment within the area.
“We are honored to bring our industry-leading flooring solutions to the Texas Motor Speedway,” said Bill Imhoff, president/CEO of Intertech Commercial Flooring. “Texas Motor Speedway is a first-class facility where performance and quality are job one. Our LATICRETE floors were the ideal solution for the new spaces that will be utilized by the race teams. They deliver moisture-free, flat finished concrete with resinous coatings providing excellent chemical resistance and non-slip traction properties critical for garage and high-tech services spaces like this.”
The LATICRETE SUPERCAP System combines industry leading, patented pump truck technology and innovative products to deliver perfectly flat, dry floors up to 50,000 square feet (4645 m2) a day, up to 50 stories high. For more than a decade, it has delivered timesaving, cost-effective solutions that correct uneven concrete, reduce moisture vapor emissions and shorten build times. LATICRETE SUPERCAP is lab-certified compliant with OSHA’s new silica dust rules effective July 2017, keeping job sites safer and healthier. This system benefits the entire project from design to completion including wear-surfaces – all backed by the industry leader in globally proven construction solutions.
