Common Hazards in Food Processing Sites
Without the right level of sanitation and orderliness, several issues in food processing sites can manifest. Every detail of the facility needs to be properly attended to for smoother and safer operations.
When it comes to flooring, we understand what is at stake better than anyone. Without our floor coatings that cater to food processing facilities, all kinds of accidents can happen, food items can easily be contaminated, raising temperatures can be problematic, and a whole host of issues.
Fortunately, you can rely on our range of products to prevent these from happening in your food processing facility.
We address these common problems in food processing facilities:
- Wet and slippery floor surfaces
- Moist floors near electrical systems
- Uneven flooring due to old finishing that has cracked and chipped over time
- Unsightly floors that have been exposed to toxic pollutants like animal feces and blood
- Uninsulated flooring that radiates heat in broiler rooms
- Porous floors that promote the spread of bacteria and animal-borne viruses
Any of these can create a hazardous working environment for employees and workers. If left unresolved, they could cause accidents and personal injury lawsuits. You may avoid these outcomes by equipping your facility with safety features — starting with top-grade flooring.
Our Flooring Solutions at Dex-O-Tex
Our advanced flooring solutions offer impenetrable waterproofing through a seamless epoxy coating. If you prioritize functionality and cost-efficiency, we may install terrazzo floors, which offer the same waterproofing benefit plus low maintenance and durability.
Floors installed and finished by Dex-O-Tex are slip-proof, impact- and heat-resistant, and serve your facility for years. If you’re looking for aesthetic value, we will give that to you as well. We use customizable terrazzo aggregates, colorflakes, metallic finishes, and concrete-like coating.

Products like our Cheminert and Tek-Crete flooring systems are resistant to a wide range of chemical cleaners that meat and poultry processing plants use to keep their floors clean. Their chemical resistance and waterproofing make it easier to wash away chemicals and detritus, resulting in shorter downtime between cleaning.
Our flooring systems are also perfect for high-traffic areas, such as loading docks and production floors, because of their enhanced resistance to cracks and scuffing. This means that facilities will not have to close production because they must reapply their floor coating, increasing the productivity of the facility.
Finally, we offer skid-resistant and slip-proofing additives to our primary products. This protects factory workers and plant operators from potentially harmful accidents, such as falling and tripping. These hazards are prevalent in areas that are frequently wet or exposed to liquids.
With sound flooring solutions, workers have fewer things to worry about and can go about their jobs safely.
Preserving the cleanliness of a poultry or meat processing facility is one of the top concerns of its architect. Dex-O-Tex’s applied flooring solutions are perfect for keeping the surfaces in their production areas sanitary. Their moisture resistance prevents the accumulation of grime and makes it easy to wash away detritus. This also inhibits the growth of moisture-loving organisms, like mold, and deprives bacteria of habitats.
Our product’s enhanced durability and wear-resistance reduce the risk of cracks that insects and other organisms use as shelter. Fewer cracks and scuffing also decrease the odds of particulate matter, such as dust and sand, from contaminating the production area or the food.
We also infuse our products with antimicrobial agents and protective biocides to provide our clients with a truly hygienic flooring system for their processing facilities.
Clean Floors for Clean Food
The processing area of a meat or poultry production facility is the heart of its operations. In this area, dozens of workers will handle thousands of portions of meat and poultry, which will then be shipped to innumerable stores and consumed by millions of people. As such, the flooring of meat processing plants needs to comply with the health and safety regulations of multiple agencies.
To prevent viruses and bacteria from multiplying on their surfaces and floors, these facilities need to routinely sanitize areas with chemical solutions. Without water and chemical resistance, these cleaning routines can wear away the protective coating of their floors, exposing meat and poultry to the different microbial and particulate threats.
However, excellent floor coating systems are seamless, preventing water from accumulating. This makes it easy to remove moisture and chemical agents, allowing for cleaner floors and safer food products.
