Are you running a coffee shop or restaurant in Brisbane? Or do you own a large catering company or food processing plant?
One thing these places have in common is that they all need to follow the Queensland Food and Safety regulations.
The minimum flooring regulations require the floors to be free from cracks and crevices and have a smooth surface. They should not absorb grease, food particles or water and are unable to harbor pests and ponding water.
Commercial kitchens experience constantly wet settings from frequent high-pressure hosing, temperature extremes, hot oil spills, exposure to animal fats, alkali and harsh cleaning chemicals. Having a floor that cannot withstand all of these, can be the difference between your business stays in business or not.
There are only a few types of flooring that matches the regulations and can handle all challenges.
Epoxy flooring is one of them and it's quickly becoming the preferred choice thanks to its seamless surface and chemical resistance.
Having floor that adheres to Queensland food and safety regulations, will ensure your Brisbane food business operates smoothly and with confidence.
Your commercial kitchen floors are constantly exposed to harsh cleaning chemicals, alkali and animal fats. If your floor is not sealed, these substances can eat away your concrete floor and damage it beyond repair. Epoxy is highly chemical resistant even with aggressive fats like chicken fat. It protects your concrete from damage, corrosion and stains.
Thanks to its specially designed topcoat, epoxy flake flooring has anti-bacterial properties, that prevent bacteria, germs and mold growth. It provides a clean and sterile environment for safe food handling without the risk of food born diseases.
With its smooth non-porous surface, epoxy flooring repeals dirt and stains, making it really easy to clean. This makes it ideal for places that need to adhere to strict cleaning and sanitation regulations, such as the food and health care idustry.
Epoxy flooring is extremely durable, scratch and abrasion resistant. Dropping heavy metal pans or moving heavy food carts will not dent or scratch the floors. Because epoxy is so durable, it has longer life span than other flooring options, making it more cost effective in the long run.
Water trapped underneath the floor is one of the main reasons for bacteria growth. With its waterproof properties, epoxy repeals water, preventing it from soaking into the floor. If coving is incorporated into the floor, sealing the gap between the floor and the walls, then water will have no chance to get trapped.
We use high quality epoxy, which can withstand high temperature changes, without loosing its hardness and becoming rubber like. This is extremely important for areas around commercial ovens.
With the added properties of anti-slip, epoxy greatly improves the traction in your Brisbane food business. By minimizing the slip and fall incidents, you will improve the work and safety for your staff and comply with Queensland health and safety regulations.
Like we already mentioned, your commercial food flooring, needs to meet the minimum requirements for food safety in Queensland.
