    Anti Slip

    Polyurethane RT and HF screeds offer the maximum anti slip properties. Most Dairy production areas are subject to liquids hence it is vital that these areas are not a slip hazard. With their high anti slip properties, polyurethane resin screeds are the ideal choice. Also this product can be laid to falls to help drainage helping to meet high health and safety standards.

    Acidic

    Polyurethane RT and HF resin floors are a must for cheese and dairy floors, owing to their chemical and physical properties. With some Diary being acidic by nature, it will, if unchecked, slowly corrode concrete. Polyurethane resin screed systems offer the best chemical protection. They are designed to be impervious and withstand organic acids, which are very common with dairy production.

    Extremes of Heat

    Cheese and dairy floors can be subject to extremes of heat; therefore any floor must be thermal shock resistant, especially near the ovens. Polyurethane screed floors are very durable and offer excellent thermal protection. They can withstand direct temperatures up to 120 degrees, or up 130 degrees at 12mm.

    Hygienic

    Polyurethane RT and HR resin can be steam cleaned up to 120 degrees. This will kill any harmful bacteria but will not affect the integrity of the resin floor. Therefore, as resin screeds are also seamless, they are very hygienic where cleanliness and hygiene levels are very high. This product is complemented by coving and render, to allow for a smooth transition from wall to floor. This makes cleaning easy, whilst providing a seamless “box” finish for high sterile processes in the food industry.

    Why add Coving?

    Coving is the link between the wall to floor finish. Once in place It provides a seamless, impervious connection between the floor and the wall/ vertical surface. By bridging the gap between the floor and wall surface you create “one surface” and as such eliminate the hard to reach areas where bacteria can grow. Meeting regulatory requirements, the seamless cove is easy to clean and maintain, essential to maintain hygiene and safety in Cheese and dairy facilities.
