Tiled and hygienic floors for ready meal preparation.
Hygiene, safety and longevity are three of the most important considerations when selecting a new floor finish for the prepared meal manufacturing industry. With nearly 40 years’ experience working with all types and sizes of manufacturers across the UK, Kemtile has the necessary experience to advise on the best flooring solutions to suit these specific environments.
The company provides a one-stop shop for flooring, drainage and walls as well as any associated civils works - such as underground drainage connections and new structural concrete floors. All of Kemtile’s installations are carried out by its own trained personnel or approved subcontractors and include experienced site supervision and full health and safety compliance.
Types of flooring systems provided by Kemtile
Kemtile’s specialisms include the installation of Kagetec vibration ceramic tiled floors - incorporating ARGELITH fully vitrified porcelain floor tiles - and Ucrete heavy duty polyurethane resin floors from BASF. In fact, Kemtile is proud to be the world’s longest established licensed Ucrete installer, as well as being the exclusive UK applicator for Kagetec Tiling Systems for over 20 years.
Because Kemtile is one of the few companies can install both these high-performance flooring systems, it is well placed to advise customers on the right flooring to meet their needs. This often means combining the two systems, tiles and resin, to meet specific performance and cost requirements. Both finishes can be complemented by the installation of stainless steel drainage from Wiedemann-Technik, a leading supplier to the food industry for over 50 years. Kemtile is, in fact, the sole UK agent for these top-quality drainage systems, which are often imitated but never matched.
Key considerations for a ready meals processing unit floor
It must be easy to clean and therefore impervious. Plain concrete floors cannot be classified as hygienic and can create dust that enters the atmosphere.
Because liquids, oils and other ingredients are frequently spilt on the floor, it must also be slip resistant.
As some ingredients and cleaning chemicals can attack concrete all hygienic floor surfaces must provide this important level of protection to avoid potential costly remedial works.
Floors can be subject to extremes of heat. They must also be extremely durable and impact resistant.
The correct drainage also plays a major part of any hygienic floor installation and should be carefully considered at start of the specification and design process. Drainage systems should be made of stainless steel for maximum hygiene and cleanability
