As the manufacturer of ResinDek® panels, we have been at the forefront of testing and innovating flooring panels for the Material Handling Industry since 1994. In 2007, we began providing ResinDek panels for automated warehouse distribution robots. Much of our initial research and development occurred with Automated Guided Vehicles. In the last decade, we have provided a variety of ResinDek engineered flooring products to numerous Automated Guided Vehicles (AGV) and Autonomous Mobile Robot (AMR) manufacturers for their testing labs. As a result, millions of square feet of ResinDek panels are in service worldwide with robotic traffic in distribution centers, warehouses, microfulfillment centers, and retail environments.
We know that the durability and condition of floors are important for optimal performance of AGV's and AMR's. Coefficient of friction, surface roughness, floor flatness, gloss, and wear can all affect the ability of robots to run at their peak performance. That's why we go to great lengths to extensively test internally and send our products to be evaluated by independent laboratories as well as the robotic manufacturers. In addition, we can customize the finish for any specification required.

We understand that the flooring for your autonomous mobile robots and automated guided vehicles can be complex, and there may be a variety of demands within a single project. Automated warehouse distribution robots need to move quickly and operate efficiently as possible, and we recognize that the floor finish plays a crucial role in how well AMRs and AGVs perform. Coefficient friction, surface roughness, floor flatness, gloss, and wear can all affect the ability of robots to run at their peak. Therefore, we offer a multitude of ResinDek flooring options that can be customized for load capacities, required finish type, and volume of robotic traffic. The optimization of all these criteria provides an extremely cost-effective solution that is tailored for each project.
Let us help you provide a hybrid flooring solution that is extremely cost-effective and tailored to meet the needs of each individual project.
NOTES FOR TABLES ABOVE:
ResinDek flooring panels are formulated in different thicknesses and densities to meet the requirements of varying load capacities. ResinDek composite engineered panels have the structural integrity that supports dynamic and static rolling loads from 500 to 6,000 lbs while handling the rigorous demands of automated guided vehicles and autonomous mobile robots.
ResinDek engineered flooring panels feature a tongue-and-groove configuration promoting effective panel to panel wheel load transfer. When required, tongue and groove configurations are available on all 4 sides. ResinDek panels are custom manufactured, back by comprehensive design engineering services and a 10-year product warranty. ResinDek panels are available in sizes up to 4' x 10' (1220mm x 3048mm).

For robotic traffic, ResinDek flooring panels are available with two different surface finishes: TriGard® ESD and MetaGard® SST. Both options can be applied to the full range of ResinDek flooring panels. The TriGard ESD finish on ResinDek panels utilizes a unique coating technology that is specifically engineered for the rigorous demands of ultra-high rolling traffic associated with robotic applications. ResinDek with MetaGard SST features a steel surface that encapsulates the ResinDek flooring panel and can withstand millions of repetitive cycles typically found with AGVs, especially in areas where dirt or debris accumulate 24/7 and is not routinely cleaned. In addition, we can customize the finish for any specification required.
TRIGARD ESD AND METAGARD SST - HEAVY DUTY FLOOR PANELS FOR AGV & AMR ROBOTIC TRAFFIC
To ensure the level flooring surface critical for the success of robotic navigation, Cornerstone Specialty Wood Products, LLC® offers a complete package of engineered fastening systems. These engineered solutions allow installers to securely fasten ResinDek® panels for robotic applications quickly and easily.
+ TOP SIDE ENGINEERED FASTENERS
Strong, durable, and easy to install, ResinDek® engineered fasteners secure the flooring panels with no countersinking or pre-drilling necessary. They are designed with wings near the top of the shaft that create a counter-bore for screw heads. The fasteners' number 2 square drive head works with the drill point to effortlessly penetrate steel decking thicknesses up to 12-gauge. To prevent the ResinDek® panels from lifting during installation, the fasteners are designed to drill through both the panel and steel decking before the threads engage.
Features of the top-side engineered fasteners:
+ Stand-Up Screwdriver for Engineered Fasteners
Designed specifically for panels that are secured from their top surface, Cornerstone's stand-up screwdriver works with collated strips of ResinDek® engineered fasteners. Together, the system cuts fastening costs by up to 40%, while its ergonomic design significantly reduces fatigue during installation.
Other stand-up screwdriver advantages include:
+ Collated Screws for Corrugated Metal Deck
Designed for applications in which ResinDek® panels are installed over structural metal B-Deck decking, Cornerstone's engineered fasteners work best with roll form beams and structural steel less than 3/16" thick. B-Deck valley widths less than 2-1/2" may not accommodate Cornerstone's stand-up screwdriver. Contact Cornerstone Specialty Wood Products for more guidance and recommendations.
+ INVISI-LOC® UNDERSIDE ENGINEERED FASTENING SYSTEM
The Invisi-Loc® under deck engineered fastening system is used to secure ResinDek® panels from underneath the mezzanine structure. This eliminates visible fasteners on the flooring surface. Dependable, economical, and easy to use, the fasteners and flooring panels can be installed with Cornerstone's pre-punched corrugated metal decking, which cuts installation time and eliminates metal shavings.

Autonomous mobile robots work using a laser light to bounce off the surrounding environment so that it can detect any obstacles in the robot's physical space. This allows the robot to have a map of the surrounding area and its work environment. Large obstacles are easy for the robot to avoid but cracks in a concrete floor may not be as easy to detect and could cause damage to your autonomous mobile robot and potentially delay productivity ResinDek warehouse decking panels help to reduce the risk of these potential hazards by providing a flat, level flooring surface with long lasting durability.
AMRs are used for a variety of different tasks and applications. AMRs can be used for the following applications:
