Food & Beverage

Food manufacturing environments are exposed to a wide variety of corrosive by-products and contaminants that include fats, hot oils, blood, sugar solutions and natural food acids. These contaminants can deteriorate insufficiently robust surfaces in a clean zone, resulting in uncontrolled bacterial growth and adding the risk of contamination incidents to the site.

To ensure the sanitary integrity of the production area it is essential to have a floor finish that allows fast and effective cleaning to wash all contaminants out of the area. To achieve this, the floor needs to be seamless and impervious, as well as pitched to a fall with adequate coving and stainless steel drainage incorporated into the finish. To avoid the cost of early refurbishment, these flooring properties are required to be maintained for an extended period of time despite the inevitable wear and tear of a large-scale food manufacturing facility. 

To minimise contamination as much as possible in this industry, HACCP International has certified building materials by testing to a high hygiene standard. The Flowfresh range of antimicrobial enhanced, polyurethane floors have been HACCP International certified thanks to its ability to consistently provide a clean, high performance finish within food and beverage environments.

An antimicrobial agent called Polygiene® is also included within every Flowfresh floor. This silver ion based additive is able to inhibit the growth of bacteria by up to 99.9% on the surface of the floor. Flowfresh meets the ISO 22916 standard, which measures a surface’s antibacterial effectiveness.

Many food processing environments, such as fish processing or dairy facilities, are prone to wet working conditions. To avoid painful slips and trips the floor can be textured to enhance traction underfoot and make it safer for workers moving around on-site.
