New Hygienic Rooms For Fresh Food Processing

New Hygienic Rooms For Fresh Food Processing
February 17
12:07 2014

When maintaining a hygienic environment there are many elements to be considered by a contractor before any construction can begin. One of the main elements in the food processing industry is the flooring. Having an inappropriate flooring installed in a processing room that is in use and cleaned down on a daily basis can lead to a number of problems that directly lead to health and safety issues around the work place.

Recently, John Lord Specialist Flooring has been working with the fresh produce manufacturers, Natures Way Foods, who demand the highest standard of hygienic environments when processing their fresh food products for their retailers and foodservice companies.

Once briefed about the specific requirements for their new production rooms, John Lord chose the optimal flooring product to withstand the daily operations. Using their British made resin flooring product, John Lord manufactured the flooring components of their Uragard HTAS resin flooring and packaged them ready to be transported to site. The Uragard HTAS was chosen to meet the demands of the company’s safety requirements. With a high level slip resistance and a heavy duty performance, the daily operatives working in the area will have reassurance of safety under foot in even the worst working conditions.

To ensure that the water flow in the cleaning process was directed towards the drainage channels, John Lord worked closely with ASPEN by Canal Engineering Ltd to create the perfect floor fall design. ASPEN manufactured and installed specially adapted wall kerbing to assist the new floor design for the rooms and installed their wide stainless steel drainage systems for an increased drainage capacity to cater for the water flow rates.

Once ASPEN had installed the wall Kerbing, the John Lord installation team mixed and laid the fast curing, resin flooring to the bespoke floor design incorporating the specified falls towards the drainage channels ready for the new food processing rooms to be occupied.

Part of the same group, John Lord and ASPEN often work closely providing a high standard service spanning across a variety of industries. This March, both will be exhibiting at MAINTEC, stand M6G, and FOODEX, stand H289, where they will be displaying their latest product innovations at the NEC, Birmingham.
