Characteristics required from a flooring used in the agri-food sector

Impermeability and hygiene

An impermeable floor is required to counteract the spillage of liquids and the potential growth of microorganisms.

Dust-free and easy to clean

The flooring should not generate dust and also be easy to clean and maintain for a long period of time.

Durability

An appropriate floor should last for many years, making it a profitable decision. Our floors offer a 10-year guarantee.

Mechanical strength

It has to be resistant towards transporting loads, heavy machinery as well as to the transit of vehicles and people.

Anti-slip

Food industry factories can have a wet and humid environment. This can cause the flooring to become slippery.

Chemical resistance

It must have excellent resistance to chemical products and aggressive substances, such as solvents, which can quickly degrade a floor.

Common floor problems in the agri-food sector:

Spillage of liquids and products

A very common circumstance in the agri-food industry. Not only because of humans dropping products or liquids on the floor, but also due to the operations carried out by the machinery itself. In many cases, these products are chemicals and can be aggressive.

Slips

These liquids can cause employees to slip and can lead to occupational accidents.

Collisions, impacts, and heavy displacement

Within the agri-food sector, we can distinguish two zones: the logistics zone and the manufacturing zone. Overall, both areas require resistance to blows, impacts, traffic of heavy machinery, vehicles (pallet trucks, trucks, etc.), and people.

The proliferation of germs, fungi, and others

Due to the specific properties of the working environment, it is very common for bacteria or germs to appear which can affect the quality of the products. A hygienic floor is a necessary safety measure against them.
