Durable Flooring for Pie Manufacturing

Durable Flooring for Pie Manufacturing

In food production it is vital that the correct flooring is chosen for maximum safety and efficiency around the workplace. The main flooring requirements in the food industry are a balance of durability, cleanability and an anti-slip profile, which all contribute to a safe and hygienic environment.

Recently John Lord was commissioned to manufacture and install a suitable anti-slip flooring system throughout a pie manufacturer’s facility. The processing and packaging facilities involved different cleaning regimes requiring some areas to become very wet while cleaning waste. Taking into consideration the food manufacturing process, John Lord decided the best flooring to use was their Uragard HT62W. The polyurethane resin floor was installed and then back-rolled creating a sufficient compromise between a high grade, anti-slip profile for safety under foot and the cleanability of the floor. A vibrant terracotta colour was the chosen resin colour range to help highlight dark waste food on the floor.

The John Lord resin flooring product range is British manufactured and installed throughout the UK and internationally. In particular, the Uragard polyurethane resin flooring range is ideal for the food processing industry. Each product in the Uragard range has a different attribute offering a floor solution for any factory environment. In environments where meat, fat and grease is present, the most aggressive anti-slip grade floor is ideal and provides the vital safety under foot to all operatives in the area. In environments where dry processing and packaging is present, a lower grade of anti-slip is preferred improving cleanability times and providing excellent abrasion resistance for high volumes of pedestrian and vehicular traffic.

John Lord takes a ‘Total Responsibility’ on every project involving their exclusive resin flooring range. From floor design, manufacture and substrate preparation, through to installation and after sales support, John Lord is committed to meeting your flooring requirements.
