What Is the Ideal Flooring for Food and Beverage Factories?
Food manufacturing facilities have unique flooring needs compared to residential and commercial buildings. Though the latter two lean more towards aesthetics and durability, the food manufacturing industry needs flooring that is resistant to extreme temperatures, moisture, and scratches, and prevents the buildup of dirt, contaminants, and bacteria inside the facility.
The ideal flooring for food and beverage facilities, therefore, must have the following qualities:
- Have a solid, smooth, and durable surface (not prone to cracking and chipping)
- Non-porous and non-permeable (these are crucial for maintaining hygiene and cleanliness in the facility)
- Can endure extreme heat or thermal shock
- Can withstand exposure to chemicals
- Can withstand repetitive or prolonged exposure to toxic organic compounds like chlorine, wastewater, runoffs, and animal blood and excrement
Knowing that these are some of your most important criteria for flooring, we give you some options that meet all of the above.
