What is an industrial plot or land?
Industrial land is land that is intended for industrial companies, as they have specific requirements in terms of size or location.
Industrial land is the ideal terrain to house factories, business parks or industrial estates as they are mainly secondary sector businesses.
Characteristics of industrial land
Those who are thinking of buying or renting an industrial land should consider its main characteristics in order to choose the one that best suits their needs.
Location of the industrial land
The strategic location of the land is important to achieve better long-term performance of the property.
It should also be checked if the property is located near other important points such as roads, airports or even the location of suppliers.
In Castilla-La Mancha, there is a total of 29 million m2 of industrial land distributed among the major cities (Albacete, Ciudad Real, Cuenca, Guadalajara and Toledo).
It should also be verified if the industrial site is located in an area with a growth forecast. This is important to determine if it meets the current and future needs of the company.
Profitability of the land
If the establishment of the business is a long-term project, it should be profitable to make the most of it. Another alternative is to sell land, which can bring a high return and profitability due to its size or location.
Safety and security
Security is an element that should always be considered in order to keep the operation of the business safe and to ensure comprehensive control of the entrances and exits of the demarcated areas.
What benefits does industrial land offer?
This type of land is the most favorable for the construction of industrial spaces due to the many advantages it brings. We highlight the following:
- Resistance to different temperatures. Industrial flooring provides greater resistance to changes in temperature that may occur, both from outdoor and indoor activities.
- Fire resistance. Materials with flame retardant properties are used, which prevent the spread of fire and the explosion of flammable components.
- Impermeability to liquids. It is important to use waterproof materials to prevent environmentally harmful substances from leaking into groundwater, thus meeting environmental requirements.
- Non-slip. Floors with these properties allow comfortable work and facilitate the movement of goods, vehicles and heavy machinery.
What can be built on industrial land?
Industrial flooring is the preferred flooring in all types of industry, so it can be applied in a wide variety of spaces, such as those mentioned below.
Warehousing, production, manufacturing or distribution activities. For this, they need to provide a very special floor that allows them to perform all these functions.
The floor of industrial buildings must be resistant to friction, abrasion and corrosive substances. They also have a continuous structure that prevents the accumulation of dirt and pathogens.
Over time, the flooring of parking lots tends to deteriorate due to the constant movement of vehicles and the substances they emit. For this reason, it is important to have a resistant flooring that ensures the longest possible life and slows down the deterioration.
If it is an outdoor parking lot, it must also be resistant to moisture, ultraviolet rays and weather conditions.
Industrial floors on which laboratories are to be built must also have certain properties.
Various health and aseptic factors must be taken into account to prevent the drugs produced from becoming contaminated with accumulated residues.
It is also necessary to ensure sufficient chemical resistance to all kinds of materials that may fall on the floor and cause damage.
Agricultural and food industry
Floors in the agricultural and food industry must have excellent sliding properties and high resistance to wear, high temperatures and chemical products.
This flooring must be continuous, without cracks or joints, to avoid the accumulation of dirt and bacteria. It should also be easy to clean and maintain, as these are heavily used surfaces where liquids or food are often spilled.
