Floor Flatness Survey: When to get it and why?
What is Floor Flatness Survey?
Floor Flatness survey is the mapping of the floor of a building or a site to identify its flatness, levelness, abrasion and more. It is essential to conduct floor and flatness survey when:
- Undertaking a new building
- Re-purposing your current unit
- Doing a refurbishment project
- Setting up in a new premise.
An industrial floor should have adequate flatness in order to provide a suitable surface for the operation of material handling equipment (MHE). The floor should also have appropriate levelness to ensure proper functioning of the building together with its static equipment. Red Laser Scanning specialists are here to explore the importance of keeping the required surface regularity tolerance.
With the increase of robotic operations, the impact of floor characteristics on performance is increasingly becoming more important. The slope, flatness, and surface of your floor can impact safety of both your staff and visitors, as well as the efficiency of operations. Although your warehouse or industrial floor may look flat, deviations and irregularities can present risk to the stability of your storage systems as well as the smooth running of MHE and other equipment. In light of this, you need to have your floor assessed for suitability and safety.

The entire floor is scanned using 3D laser scanners, collecting highly accurate data
Deliverable from the Survey
Receive a detailed and validated report of findings with recommendations (if improvements are required) from the survey of your industrial or warehouse floor, covering both Free Movement (FM) and Defined Movement (DM) floors. This will help you with safe and efficient running of MHE. The validated reports measure flatness, curvature, levelness, surface gloss, and surface roughness. Our specialists can also provide as-bult BIM models from scans of the whole building as required.
What do we use for Floor Flatness Survey?
Red Laser Scanning expert surveyors employ the use of the latest industrial-grade terrestrial laser scanners to accurately map your floor, ensuring absolute accuracy of the captured data. The entire floor is scanned using 3D laser scanners, collecting highly accurate data, rather than the standard practice of testing only a sample area. Therefore, we provide survey reports with a complete wall-to-wall coverage. This makes it easier for the layout or usage of an existing building to be changed.

Why do you need a Floor Flatness Survey?
Meeting the required surface regularity tolerance is essential for the following reasons:
- Operations are more efficient if lift trucks operate at maximum speed.
- Poor surface regularity will cause excessive vibrations on a lift truck and increase downtime as well as maintenance.
- The floor flatness survey is essential to ensure health and safety, and reduced driver fatigue.
- Reduced damage to stock.
- Gives control over the general quality of a floor when constructed.
How much does a Floor Flatness Survey Cost in UK?
Our floor flatness survey costs vary with the nature of a project, and are determined by the following factors:
- The size and scale of the building/site
- The complexity of the building/site
- The conditions and accessibility of the site
- The level of detail required
- The format of deliverables required
