A functional and purpose-built floor is critical for a safe and hygienic production environment in food and beverage facilities. The floor is hygienic, non-slip, easy to clean and durable, providing a safe environment to work. Choosing the right floor is important for any work environment. The environments where food and beverages are processed must have a satisfactory floor covering in terms of safety and hygiene.
There are several reasons why floors fail. One relates to poor design and construction of the substrate, the other is the decking being unsuitable for the intended use, and the third is a poorly executed installation and poor detailing.
It may seem ironic, but it is often the most expensive floors that fail the most. And when floors fail, it’s no small matter. Renovating and repairing a floor means downtime, which means lost revenue. On average, depending on the size and complexity of the repair, typically rely on at least a week for a floor refurbishment.
An important feature of resin floors is that they are continuous. And with a good substrate design, the entire floor area can be made perfect, which greatly improves hygiene. Minimizing joints increases the durability and life of the floor while further reducing hygienic issues.
