Heavy Duty and Anti-slip Epoxy Flooring for Commercial Food Processing
A hygienic, safe and hardwearing flooring is imperative for any food production kitchen or laboratory. Regardless of size or type of production and preparation, unsafe floors can have extreme ramifications for the public and staff when it comes to food. Strict standards are required across all food processing companies to ensure that floor coatings meet industry guidelines.
Due to the nature of work within a commercial food processing environment, floor coatings need to be sufficiently robust and be able to withstand severe operating conditions. Food processing kitchens and labs are subject to extreme temperatures, damages from spills, scratching and destruction from heavy, rotating equipment, heavy foot traffic and more.
If you are looking to install durable and trustworthy epoxy flooring that you can ensure will keep your staff and food safe, Concrete Flooring Solutions are experts in the field of floor installations and epoxy resin coating.
Why Epoxy Resin Is the Best Choice for Your Food Processing Flooring
Epoxy resin floors can deliver the best food-safe flooring due to their anti-mould, dust and slip-resistant properties. You will often see epoxy resin flooring coatings in the bakery industry, commercial kitchens and more, making it an excellent choice for your food processing establishment.
Epoxy resin is a compound made from solid and self-levelling components which means the seamless and imperishable surface creates a protective barrier against contaminants and can be cleaned and sanitised effortlessly to maintain the highest standards of food safety and hygiene.
Epoxy flooring is also an excellent choice for food processing floor coatings due to its strong resistance to mechanical and thermal shock. When installed in a commercial food processing environment, flooring will be subject to not only heavy footfall but heavy machinery, steel-wheeled carts, dragged crates and extreme temperatures. The materials used in epoxy resin flooring are insusceptible to melting, disfiguring and cracking as a result of weight or heat.
Benefits of Epoxy Flooring for Processing Areas
Alongside being hard-wearing and hygienic, an epoxy resin flooring system for your food processing environment poses a vast range of benefits:
- Chemical Resistant
Working in a commercial kitchen or lab requires rigorous and regular cleaning and sanitation to ensure food safety. Epoxy resin is resistant to most cleaning chemicals as well as power cleaners and washers. High-pressure power washers and corrosive cleaning products are suitable to use on epoxy resin flooring.
Polyurethane resin floor screeds can be blended with colour and aggregates to create an attractive finish to your flooring without compromising the quality.
As established, food processing labs require durable flooring to withstand trade activities. Installing epoxy flooring means that you will not need to constantly replace your flooring due to wear and tear over time.
The biggest benefit of epoxy flooring is its strength and ability to withstand extreme weights and temperatures. Epoxy flooring is rarely damaged, cracked or compromised due to any stress put onto it.
Food is perishable, therefore the flooring required in a processing environment needs a seamless surface which is not only easy to clean but needs to have no openings or cracks for food to get stuck or lost in. Epoxy’s smooth surface and self-levelling property mean that there is no risk of any coves.
