If you are building or remodeling a brewing facility, there are some flooring particularities that will positively affect your day to day routines. Although flooring might not be a number one concern, there are many advantages to installing appropriate brewery flooring to ensure your operations run as smoothly as possible. Here’s how!
In any food, beverage, or processing facility, seamless flooring is essential. Not only does the concept save you time on sanitation and cleaning, but you will also find that you now have more opportunities to focus on the task at hand – making your product! Seamless floor coatings eliminate problematic areas like tile grout where bacteria and contaminants can accumulate. Cleaning becomes faster and simpler and with regular maintenance, you have powerful floors that will perform for years.
Because your floors will be spilled on constantly, your floors should be non-slip. This can be achieved by a sand or color quartz broadcast to combat slips and keep your staff safe.
Heat and Impact Resistance
High heat environments are inevitable to breweries. Heat is part of the brewing process, and not all flooring can take the heat! Be sure your coating system is heat tolerant and can withstand extreme temperatures. Machinery, brewing kettles, and forklifts are common and necessary factors in your brewery as well. Be sure your coating system is high impact and high build to ensure it can take the beating of that heavy-duty traffic.
