Firstly, 4,000 m2 of the heavy duty Isocrete Isopol SBR was installed. This styrene butadiene (SBR) polymer latex screed additive and bonding agent was laid un-bonded, as the onsite substrate provided was lightweight concrete and required reinforcing prior to the application of the finish.
4,000 m2 of the ultra-hygienic polyurethane system Flowfresh HF was applied in a 9mm thick layer across the kitchen, washing area and cold room thanks to its durability and antibacterial properties.
The HACCP International certified flooring solution was ideal for this food preparation environment, as Flowfresh can withstand thermal shock from hot ovens, chemical attack from food by-products and point loading from heavy equipment.
The seamless and impervious nature of Flowfresh HF also facilitates quick and easy cleaning. To further enhance on-site hygiene levels, the antibacterial additive Polygiene® is homogenously distributed into every Flowfresh floor. To increase the ease of cleanability, coving was installed throughout the kitchen to ensure that dropped foodstuff and bacteria could not hide in joints between the wall and floor.
Finally, drains were incorporated into the flooring to allow unwanted liquid and substances to rapidly flow out of the contamination-sensitive areas.
