The Advantages of Resin Floors in Food and Beverage Facilities

The durable, customisable and hygienic properties of resin floors means that they can provide food and beverage facilities with a wide range of advantages that help site managers to optimise the working environment.

A common attribute of all resin floors is that they create a seamless and impermeable surface. Combining this hygienic finish with stainless steel drainage is a highly effective way to minimise the risk of contaminants, such as bacteria, fungi, mould and mildew, collecting in hard to clean gaps or being absorbed into the surface. Instead the site’s cleaning regime is able to quickly and easily remove grime from the area.

Food and beverage facilities also require a floor that is robust enough to cope with the rigours of a production environment, which could include heavy impacts, thermal shock, wear from frequent cleaning and exposure to harsh chemicals such as sanitizers, acids, lubricants and the foodstuffs themselves.

The monolithic nature of a resin floor also means that the concrete substrate will be protected from substances that would otherwise damage this crucial aspect of the building’s structure.

To further enhance a facility’s hygienic credentials, the owners of food production and processing sites can specify systems tailored to the specific needs of their environment. For example floors with an antimicrobial additive homogenously distributed throughout the resin matrix can be installed to provide a finish that will actively target bacteria.

The safety of a plant can also be improved by installing an anti slip finish that enhances traction underfoot. This can be advantageous for many food and beverage sites where spillages and slippery floors are an unavoidable workplace hazard.
