Food grade coving is an essential part of the factory floor within the food & beverage industry. Good quality coving ensures liquids do not leak under walls, are structured skilfully in a curved shape to ensure there are no areas for bacteria to breed and are non-slip.
Bad coving means there are cracks and crevices for bacteria to breed, and for liquids to seep into. There are many risks associated with these, including cross-contamination within the factory. Breeding bacteria can initiate many food-borne illnesses such as salmonella.
After working with the food manufacturing industry for over 8 years, we developed our own coving solution, SteriCove. Available in various heights and thicknesses, our solution completely eliminates water seeping through the wall, giving the area long term protection.
The below simplified graphic shows our SteriCove solution.
In the below image of one of our recent projects, the application team have achieved a perfect result, ensuring there is no joint between the floor and the coving to host bacteria. They have also delivered an even non-slip finish for the safety of workers & forklifts. See more projects using SteriCove here.
