The Importance of Resin Flooring for the Food Industry

We all know that it is essential to keep food production and preparation areas super clean and tidy. Although businesses take diligent care of surfaces, handwashing, equipment cleanliness and disinfecting. The condition and safety of the floor is often overlooked. Inadequate and poor flooring is unhygienic, spreads illness, becomes easily damaged by spills, and when food particles become trapped it encourages the spread of bacteria, etc. So, what is the real importance of resin flooring for the food industry?

Flooring health and safety risks in the food industry 

Microporous surfaces such as concrete create hygiene risks due to dust, dirt and bacteria finding their way into the surface and allows grease, oil, and food flakes to become trapped. Micro-porous surfaces are also highly susceptible to staining from spilt liquids and foodstuffs plus eventual damage from over-enthusiastic cleaning, scrubbing and harsh chemicals causing chips, cracks, and flakes. Non-porous coverings such as tiles and vinyl can create a serious health and safety slip, trip and fall hazard when wet and damaged and are not suitable for heavy-duty kitchens and industrial applications. 

Why choose a resin floor covering? 

Resin flooring provides a range of options created to suit your premises and are perfect for areas that are likely to become wet or contaminated with foodstuffs or chemicals. Areas that require an anti-slip finish can be accommodated or perhaps a smoother more easily cleaned finish is required. Adding coving creates a completely seamless, hygienic finish and adding resin line marking creates areas to store machinery, pallets, or other items. Hatched and ‘No Entry’  markings, as well as straightforward resin line-markings specifying boundaries around storage areas, keep employees away from certain zones and can help improve the way your premises operate.
