A One-source contractor for food floors

When you need to repair or replace your floor in the main production area it would be sensible to contact a company that can provide you with everything from laying the slab to providing the finished floor including advice on which floor to lay, stainless steel drains and kerbs as well as wall and ceiling solutions.

One company that has all these qualifications is Kemtile Ltd, a multi-disciplined company that has been laying and repairing floors in food and beverage environments for  over 30 years. A spokesman for the company commented “we understand and respect the food industry, it’s constraints and specific needs, in fact we have worked for almost every major food and drinks brand on either new build or refurbishment projects as well as many small specialist producers”

This understanding is engrained in the company’s philosophy in how it delivers the end result. There are many instances where the company has been asked to work around the product line so that manufacturing is not impeded, or has been asked to carry out the work during shut down periods.

Hygienic floors can be either seamless, where a resin based concrete screed is laid to specific falls for drainage. The system produces floors that are flat, seamless and have a long design life and have exceptional resistance to aggressive chemiacls heavy impact and thermal shock. An anti static version is available where powder mixing or chemicals are stored.

Floors can also be tiled and the company recommends the Kagetec vibration method of installation. Here the tile are encassed in an epoxy slurry and vibrated into position to form a flat, hygienic floor for the food, beverage  or pharmaceutical industries. There are 5 systems in the range each has its own unique features that make it suitable for a particular installation.
