Stand Out with Specialist Floors for Food Service

January 22, 2018

Extraordinary demands are placed on commercial kitchens and food-service areas in hotels, restaurants, malls, schools, hospitals, public institutions and leisure facilities as well as food and beverage production plants. These require specialist, long life floor surfaces that will perform and go the distance.

Let’s be frank.  Floors in food service areas take a beating.  They are subjected to all manner of punishment; abrasion from high volume foot traffic, moving of heavy equipment and carting of stock; heavy moisture from rigorous cleaning schedules; thermal shock due to hot water being used in the cleaning; attack from chemicals used to remove tough grease and other residues and temperature resistance for both cold storage and high temperature areas.  And that is only the half of it!

Floors need to be designed to meet or exceed, stringent HACCP (Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point) hygiene, health and safety standards and designed for easy cleaning – being free of crevices where bacteria can lurk (goodbye tile!), as well as providing a non-slip surface that will promote the safety of employees and patrons in public eating areas.

Cementious urethanes or seamless, high-performance resin flooring provides ultra-durable, high performance systems that are certified by HACCP and deliver excellent cost benefits due to long lifecycles (15 years or more with the correct care) and a state-of-the art finish that is at the forefront of the industry.
