PSC Flooring is one of the country’s leading industrial flooring installation contractors. We are here to repair or refurbish, production, processing, and distribution floors all year round. Therefore, helping to enable food and drink production in the UK to carry on!
Stay Safe – Covid-19 – Prepared
Our team has all the necessary PPE equipment and training to continue safely installing heavy duty polyurethane screed flooring. We have been ensuring this vital industry can carry on its work by repairing and installing 6mm or 9mm thick floors. The team has been working with bakeries, dairies, breweries, meat processing areas, abattoirs, commercial kitchens, and food manufacturers throughout the UK. We understand that across all parts of the food and drink industry, flooring should be anti-slip and extremely hard wearing. With this in mind, the obvious choice for this sector is either 6mm or 9mm thick polyurethane screen. This is because it is:
- Chemically resistant – impervious and can withstand organic acids
- Easily cleanable – can be steamed cleaned to 120 degrees at 9mm thick
- Hard-wearing – can withstand heavy loads
- Hygienic & seamless – does not support bacteria and microbial growth
- Can be laid to falls – to help drainage
- Anti-slip in wet and dry working conditions
Bakery flooring 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 are able to withstand direct temperatures up to 120 degrees or up 130 degrees at 12mm.
Beer is acidic by nature, and it will, if unchecked, slowly corrode concrete. Resin screed systems offer the best chemical protection. They are impervious and can withstand organic acids. Both of which are very common with beer production.
Cheese & Dairy
Wet production areas are subject to milk, grease, fat and water in cheese and dairy production. Polyurethane resin screeds offer excellent slip resistance in the wet. They can be laid to falls to help drainage helping to meet high health and safety standards.
Meat processing and Abattoir floors must be hygienic. Therefore, polyurethane resin screed systems are ideal. They offer a seamless finish, and can be supported by coving and render. This allows for a smooth transition from wall to floor that does not support bacteria and microbial growth.
