Hygienic Building Protection

Hygienic Building Protection
June 02
09:30 2016

In food and drink factories, hygiene is an important factor when manufacturing, processing, packaging and distributing quality products. It is imperative that the construction of the factory will not impede production or fail due to impact or wear.

With light and heavy equipment and machinery travelling throughout the premises there is chance of collisions into the walls, columns or doors ways, or in worst cases the operatives working in the factory. The aesthetics of the building will therefore significantly decrease if there isn’t sufficient protection in place.

Aspen Stainless have previously worked with a well-known food processing company to improve the construction of their new factory. From the stainless steel range, Aspen installed their wall kerb, bump rail, guard rail and wall cladding.

The wall kerbing was fully welded in place and had its welds ground down to leave a smooth, seamless finish. The top and bottom of the kerb was then sealed with a resin compound, providing a completely sealed surface between the walls and floor.

CanalEngineering2June2016For added protection, low level bump rail was installed in front of the wall kerb to protect the main construction of the factory from vehicles and other collisions.

In the food production areas, high level guard rail was installed to protect the walls and columns from the food racking trollies, which also doubled up as a storage location for the racking when it was not in use.

With strict demands for hygienic plant and equipment in all food and drink industries, Aspen has the ability to provide a tailored product package to meet your specialist requirements using its range of drainage, wall kerbing, and protection.
