Hygiene is vitally important when it comes to food preparation, whether you are working in a commercial kitchen, or in food and drink production and manufacturing. When it comes to food production, you need to install flooring that has a seamless hygienic finish and is tough enough to be cleaned thoroughly and frequently.
In a kitchen environment, spills are inevitable and frequent, whether it is liquids, fats, or food. With the number of people working in a kitchen, plus the frenetic levels of activity needed to perform their duties, it is likely that spills may go unnoticed. Having an anti-slip floor coating is essential in a food production environment.
Food production areas need floors that can withstand stringent cleaning with chemical products, hot water, and steam, not to mention accidental spills of boiling water. They also need to be resistant to the kind of scuffing and damage that comes from heavy use.
The best way to prevent the build-up of dirt and germs in food production areas is not to give it anywhere to accumulate. A floor with a smooth, seamless hygienic finish that covers the entire surface area means there are no nooks and crannies that allow unhygienic elements to hide in. The floor can therefore be quickly and efficiently cleaned to a very high standard.
The installation of a liquid resin flooring, which can easily be applied to floors of any shape or size, ensures no cracks or gaps that could harbour dirt and bacteria.
Food production plants and restaurants now cater for many different dietary needs, which means food preparation areas need to be separated to decrease the risk of cross-contamination. Using different coloured flooring, you can create separate areas without losing the advantage of a seamless finish.
As a liquid application, any damage to resin flooring is straightforward to repair with the repairs themselves seamless and providing the same benefits as the original installation.
We manufacture and install a variety of floor resins that are suitable for commercial kitchens, as well as food production and manufacturing facilities. Foodsafe Quartz and RXPU 6290 are robust enough for heavy traffic areas and have good resistance to chemicals, hot and cold liquids, and impact damage. Both provide a seamless finish and are slip resistance in wet and dry conditions. Foodsafe Quartz can even be applied in sub-zero temperatures, making it perfect for walk-in freezers. We have installed both types of flooring in many commercial kitchens plus food and drink production facilities throughout the UK. Get in touch with us to find out more and get a free quote.
