When expanding their business, Holker Farm, a cheese manufacturer in Cumbria asked PSC Flooring to quote for refurbishing 120 square metre made up of existing manufacturing facility and the newly built extension.

The client brief was to have a food grade, hygienic, easy to clean, hard wearing, chemically resistant resin screed floor laid to falls so water would run to the drains.

The obvious choice was a 6mm heavy duty polyurethane screed. It was recommended that after preparation the 120 square metre floor received a DPM primer to prevent rising moisture. Additionally, a Polyurethane mortar compound to build up the falls before the 6mm heavy duty polyurethane screed.

Preparing The Floor

In order to prepare the floor the whole surface was ground back using a diamond grinding preparation system.

Two coats of Resdev Pumaprime DPM were laid. After that, the falls were built by hand with Resdev Pumabulk Polyurethane mortar compound.

Once the preparations were complete and dry, the final flooring finish of 6mm Resdev RT polyurethane screed in a dark grey was hand applied.

As a finishing touch a 100mm high coving in a matching dark grey was applied to the perimeter of the floor.

This involved laying a plastic trim 100mm high around the room and then hand forming the Resdev Polyurethane CG cove system with a 50mm radius up to that trim.

The installation of the new floor has not only revitalised the existing building but also seamlessly brought the new extension in to feel as if it’s always been here. Installing the falls has meant that the whole floor area is much less slippy and the water naturally drains away to the central drain. In the Cheese manufacturing process, we wash down the floor multiple times a day and hence the falls have made this process much less time consuming.
