Recent Projects

Danone Nutricia: The primary activity in these facilities is the production of base powder that goes into every Danone baby-nutrition formula. It was imperative to the client that a sterile and safe environment was created. The Trazconâ Decór system 1 was the ideal solution due to its advanced hygienic, non porous, easily cleaned properties. The project involved adding a third processing and packing line, the construction of a major warehouse and facilities extension. Over 10,000 sq m was installed throughout both Danone Nutrcia Ireland production sites.

FloorTechPepsiJanuary2015Pepsi Project Evolve 2.0: Having worked closely with Pepsico over the past 20 years, FloorTech® were once again nominated to carry out works to a new manufacturing powder blending facility in Little Island, Cork. FloorTech® liaised with PJ Hegarty & Sons throughout the construction phase to ensure timelines were met during the tight building programme. 3600 sq m of Trazcon® Décor® systems were installed over two floors, including changing facilities, production, clean rooms and warehouses.

Liffey Meats, County Cavan: Liffey Meats chose FloorTech®’s Trazcon® Décor System 3 due to its superb hygienic properties, exceptional durability and rapid one hour cure time. The client required a flooring upgrade to their main boning hall to meet and perform to BRC Standards. FloorTech® installed a high profile finish certified for Slip Resistance and Food Conformity.

Indoor air quality has now become a significant issue at EU level within the work place. Poor air quality is known to contribute to illnesses such as “sick building syndrome”. Industry standards have now set required standards of 2004/42, “The maximum allowable VOC content in flooring systems must not exceed 500grm/litre”. Flooring systems such as laminates and vinyl can contain high VOC emissions. Companies and new building projects are now combating this problem by using more environmentally friendly low emitting materials.

FloorTech® offers VOC free flooring systems that contribute towards the improvement of indoor air quality and carry the German AgBB certification.

CL28 Deep Cleaning Floor Degreaser

FloorTech® now offer their own brand of environmentally friendly, solvent free, alkaline industrial floor cleaner and degreaser. BRC global standards now require regular deep cleaning to floors in food manufacturing plants. FloorTech®’s CL28 floor cleaner is specifically designed for The food and beverage industry, excelling in the breakdown of fats and acids which are common in most food industries.
