Pret A Manger, Hong Kong

A Hygienic Floor for a Sandwich and Coffee Shop

Pret A Manger is an international sandwich and coffee shop chain from the United Kingdom. Founded in 1983, Pret has over 450 shops in 9 countries and serves more than 300,000 customers daily. In Hong Kong, it has 27 shops serving white-collar workers working around major office buildings. When the flooring of its outlet in North Point Industrial Building needed a refurbishment, Pret looked for Tremco CPG Hong Kong to supply the job.

Flowcrete’s Flowfresh MF system was specified in order to meet a number of stringent hygiene requirements for Food and Beverage industry. The application started with our applicator installing 300m2 of the semi-dry cementitious Isocrete K-Screed HDP 50mm with Polymer 70. This specification was chosen due to its quick-drying and fast-curing properties, as well as its high compressive strength and ability to create a level floor ideal for a resin finish.

Subsequently, 300m2 of HACCP International certified Flowfresh MF was installed. The system has high temperature, abrasion and chemical resistance to withstand frequent impacts from dropped food, chemical and cold fridges in food processing factories and cold rooms. The incorporation of the Polygiene® antibacterial additive helps to reduce bacteria on the ground by up to 99.9%, when teamed with a regular cleaning regime.

The flooring project was completed by Tremco CPG HK’s approved applicator within 90 days and the outlet was ready to resume operation in Feb 2020.
