Our history

PICS have been involved with the design and specification of decorative concrete projects since 1992. The scope of projects across the industrial flooring, theme park and commercial paving sector, has seen both Picspave and Hatcrete products specified on projects from Industrial flooring to seafront promenades.

Specified by major international clients across many industries, installations are made simple by a network of experienced commercial installers. The process of designing and specifying surface treatments for industrial concrete floors and any of the other decorative concrete systems from PICS is supported by our technical team of experienced industry experts.


The PICS Hatcrete systems offer the architect and specifier a range of colour, pattern, texture and surface finishes, combined with excellent wear resistance qualities and the durability essential for everything from light pedestrian paved areas to heavily trafficked Industrial floors. All our systems have been used across a range of Local Authorities, Building and Landscape Architects, International Property and Commercial Developers including many Theme Parks and Fast Food Restaurant developers. 

The Hatcrete range of industrial quartz dry shakes, colour hardeners and curing and sealing products are widely used on Industrial Flooring Projects throughout the UK.  PICS have the knowledge and expertise of dealing with projects from small domestic to the largest industrial and commercial construction sites. Whatever your requirements, we are able to link the initial design to the completed installation, and can act as your technical support at all stages.
