When it comes to choosing the right flooring solution for your food and beverage manufacturing plant, as all maintenance and engineering managers are aware, it’s important to consider more than just the aesthetics. You need a flooring solution that can stand up to the harsh conditions of your facility, as well as actively fight against the growth of harmful bacteria. This is where the actively antimicrobial SteriFloor floorings come into play. We have designed and tested SteriFloor to be the ultimate solution for the needs of food and manufacturing facilities.
Passively antimicrobial floors, such as those made of polyurethane cement or epoxy, do not encourage bacterial growth, but they also do not actively prevent it from occurring. This means that there is still a risk of bacteria spreading when high-pressure hosing is carried out, potentially contaminating other critical surfaces. Passively antimicrobial floors may be sufficient for basic food and beverage manufacturing, but when it comes to high-risk areas such as clean rooms, sterile areas, or areas that come into contact with raw food or high-risk food, actively antimicrobial flooring is a must. SteriFloor solutions have unique antimicrobial technology incorporated into every layer, which actively fights against the growth of bacteria and maximizes antimicrobial activity.
One of the key advantages of SteriFloor solutions is its durability and slip resistance. The flooring is designed to withstand the harsh conditions of food and beverage manufacturing facilities, protecting staff and visitors from slip hazards while providing grip for machinery like forklifts, trolleys, and other moving vehicles. SteriFloor is also designed to resist diverse thermal variations, making it exceptional at withstanding high temperatures from things such as regular discharges of boiling water and steam.
In addition to its durability, SteriFloor is also designed to resist commonly encountered manufacturing chemicals, such as Acetic acid, Lactic acid, and Oleic acid from vegetable and animal fats. This makes it an ideal choice for facilities where such chemicals are used regularly.
Another advantage of SteriFloor is that it is completely food-safe and odourless. Its non-toxic, odourless application means that it will not cause any inhalation issues to people working in nearby areas during the installation, making it an extremely safe solution for food and beverage manufacturing facilities.
