5 Considerations When Choosing Floors For Your Brewery
Any business in Boca Raton will want industrial flooring to provide a reliable foundation for everything on their property. It will affect the productivity of the workers. Flooring in a brewery should be safe, clean, and comfortable at different temperatures. While several types of flooring options can offer these qualities, Sealwell’s seamless flooring can withstand constant change and movement. Here are 5 considerations for choosing a brewery flooring.
Polyurethane and cement are used for both cleanliness and durability. Polyurethane cement combines the most demanding performance characteristics including resistance to impact, abrasion, aggressive chemicals, and thermal shock. Polyurethane cement is easy to maintain and completely reliable, making it the perfect choice for a brewery.
Brewery flooring needs to meet FDA standards. A clean floor is a productive floor. Keeping any brewing business operational at all times starts from the ground up. Employees, products, and customers will make contact with these floors nonstop so any issues in usability will slow down their productivity. Seamless industrial flooring will be easier to clean as it is resistant to stains
and has no crevasses for dirt to hide in.
While the ingredients used to brew may be harmless to most floor options, the finished product can degrade bare concrete floors and epoxy systems over prolonged exposure because of the fermented ethanol. The superior chemical resistance against spills will protect the integrity of the floor surface so that permanent damage does not occur.
Steam and hot water are often included in the brewing process, creating high temperatures for the environment. The transfer of thermal states between hot and cold more quickly than gradual
is thermal cycling. This dynamic state of the environment makes the floors more susceptible to wear and tear. Facilities that have thermal processes should consider cement, urethane, and resinous floor systems to deal with these temperature shifts. They expand and contract just like concrete, allowing them to maintain their form after continuous shifting.
Danger of Slips
Slip resistance is an important consideration when choosing a floor system. With liquids everywhere, some are bound to spill on the floors. Bare concrete and tile can be slippery. Consider adding an anti-slip additive to a resinous floor system to provide safety to the employees working in the constant danger of spills as well as guests who are unfamiliar with the ground’s conditions.
