Food Production


Food and beverage processing facilities have certain specific requirements regarding flooring. Factors such as extreme temperatures, wet settings, and high-pressure washing can cause damage to floor surfaces if they’re not sufficiently protected. This makes it necessary to maintain floors using a combination of reliable floor coatings and maintenance services that keep the floor in good condition for many years.

Floor Protection

Substances such as hot oils, animal fats and blood, sugar, and acids can eventually cause significant damage to floors. Specific sectors within the food and beverage industry will also come with different requirements to maintain a safe and functional work environment.

These sectors include:

  • Bottling & Blending

    These facilities require durable and flexible flooring that can withstand high equipment and vehicle traffic.

  • Bakeries

    Bakery facilities need floor coatings that provide protection against corrosion from sugar that makes contact with floor surfaces.

  • Dairy Processing

    Dairy processing facilities need long-lasting and durable flooring that can withstand the cleaning requirements for both dry and wet manufacturing processes.

  • Meat Processing

    Heavy-duty flooring will include more hygiene protection along with high-grade texture to help prevent slipping, trips, and falls, while also providing protection from animal fats, oil, grease, and blood, along with rigorous cleaning methods.

  • Fruit & Vegetable Processing

    Fruit and vegetable processing flooring systems are designed to accommodate heavy traffic and high temperatures, while also providing protection against corrosion from acids, sugars, preservatives, and flavorings.

  • Snack Food Processing

    Slip-resistant floors will be able to maintain safety for workers in the area.

  • Cold Storage

    Floor coatings will be quickly installed in damp conditions and at low temperatures to help minimize downtime and spoilage risk.

Regardless of the sector, all flooring in the food and beverage industry must meet all of the health and safety regulations as specified by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) and the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
