WHY BUSINESSES CHOOSE RESIN FLOORING IN FOOD FACTORIES
Food and Drink manufacturers are regulated and comply with strict guidelines. Food safety standards such as The Food Standards Act 1999 and The General Food Law are amongst the requirements businesses within this sector must adhere to. Safety within food and drink production is a concern for the general public because the general public consumes the food produced. With several options to choose from, manufacturers choose resin flooring in food factories to meet these standards, here’s why.
THE BENEFITS OF RESIN FLOORING IN FOOD AND DRINK PRODUCTION
Production businesses must follow the highest hygiene and sanitation standards regardless of the food and drinks products manufactured.
All interior surfaces should provide sufficient protection from dust and dirt in a food and drinks manufacturing facility. Moreover, it should also safeguard against germs, bacteria and other microorganisms.
Firstly, resin flooring provides a seamless surface where dirt and bacteria cannot build up. This attribute prevents potential food contamination. Furthermore, resin flooring is non-porous, which means liquids cannot penetrate the surface. Finally, because the surface does not absorb moisture, spills, particles, and debris are simple to remove, all of which can affect product quality.
IMPROVING SAFETY IN A FOOD AND DRINK FACTORY WITH RESIN FLOORING
Food and drinks manufacturing companies must ensure their products are not spoiled or contaminated with bacteria and microorganisms. Perhaps one of the most effective ways of achieving this is with resin flooring. As we have just covered, the non-porous and seamless properties of the surface restrict the growth of harmful bacteria. Consequently, this helps in preventing food contamination and the safety of the end consumer.
The food and drink production facilities use strong chemicals to maintain a clean environment with strict hygienic procedures. However, in some cases, these chemicals can damage the floor surface. To prevent this, the application of an epoxy coating to the floor guards against chemical damage. Moreover, an epoxy resin layer will also avoid damage to floors by strong acids and alkalis used in food and drinks production. These factors allow food and drink producers to concentrate on their business operations and let the maintenance team focus on other areas of their maintenance strategy.
