In demanding food processing environments where constant pedestrian and vehicular traffic and equipment passes through, maintaining a hardworking and efficient factory is very important. One of the main elements in the food processing industry is the construction and protection of the building. Having inappropriate or non-existent protection to the facility can be very costly in the long term.

With light and heavy equipment and machinery being moved throughout the premises there are occasional collisions into the walls, columns or doors ways, or in worst cases the operatives working in the factory. The constant wear of the factory will therefore significantly increase if there is not sufficient protection installed. The increase of wear and dents to a factory’s hygienic surfaces can lead to an increase in bacteria build-up in the processing rooms making the cleaning regime harder and possible product contamination occur.

CanalEngineering2December2014Recently, ASPEN Stainless has been working with a well-known food processing company by assisting with the construction of their new facility by manufacturing and installing wall kerb, low and high level bump rail and wall cladding from their durable, stainless steel product range. The stainless steel wall kerb was installed to assist the construction of the various processing and packaging rooms while low level bump rail sits firmly in front to protect the wall kerb and walls against moving vehicular traffic and equipment. In the food production areas, high level bump 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 is not in use.

Stainless steel 304/316 provides the ideal protection against constant impacts in hygienic conditions. The stainless steel surface has excellent cleanability and provides a maintenance free solution to any industry looking to improve their facilities. Aspen Stainless manufactures their full range of stainless steel products at their manufacturing site in Nottingham, UK and has their own installation teams working throughout the UK and internationally.

ASPEN Stainless has their full product range available online at aspen.gb.com with full product technical data available to download.
