Anyone who is building or updating a facility for food and beverage operations will begin with a wish list for their flooring. As you’ll discover here, V-8 High Performance Floors are a standout selection for these applications.
Consider: The floor has to be tough to withstand heavy foot and wheeled traffic from carts. It must resist chemicals, impacts and thermal shocks. Excellent slip resistance is also a must for worker safety, given the inevitability of spilled liquids and dropped foodstuffs.
Of course, the top concern for any food or beverage space will be sanitation. Whatever the choice in flooring, it must not provide a place for bacteria or mold to grow. On the same note, ease of regular cleaning will also be key.
Given these requirements, you can rule out many flooring options—including the obvious, inappropriate ones like carpeting or hardwoods. As for the others:
Acid brick or quarry tile are not the answer.
Long-lasting and slip-resistant, acid brick or quarry tile are sometimes choices for bars, kitchens and restaurants. The problem? Both types have grout lines. Even with determined scrubbing, they’re near impossible to keep clean. As a result, the floor becomes susceptible to the growth of bacteria and mold.
Vinyl sheet flooring also comes up short.
Often termed sheet goods or glue-down floors, sheet vinyl is the preference for some—especially when installed over existing flooring. But bacteria can breed in the space between the old floor and the new one. What’s more, sheet floors usually have seams where dirt can collect and fungus may grow.
Seamless resin floors are the best solution.
Epoxy, polyurethane or hybrid resinous floors offer unsurpassed advantages. Bacteria or mold can’t find a foothold on them because they’re poured in place without any seams. Their surface is impermeable to whatever might be spilled or splashed. Cleaning becomes more thorough and less of a chore.
Restaurants and food-prep operations enjoy other plusses with resinous floors. They’re waterproof. What’s more, they’re slip-resistant.
Highly durable, expect them to hold up well over time. High-performance resin floors can withstand high traffic, impacts and repeated washings.
Another plus? Resinous flooring comes in an almost unlimited array of colors, including custom options.
