Ceramic floors for canteen kitchens
In canteen kitchens in gastronomy and hotels, a floor covering must be able to withstand high loads. Fats, oils and other contaminants are part of the daily load on the floors in canteen kitchens. In addition, the legal hygiene requirements for canteen kitchen floors pose great challenges. Normal floors are not up to these high loads. Plastic surfaces are attacked, concrete is difficult to clean due to its coarse pores and tiles cause problems due to insufficient load hardness and joints. Softer floors do not withstand heavy loads and daily public traffic. Here you get the ideal floor for the canteen kitchen, which can be used in all areas of a canteen kitchen, such as:
- Refrigeration and freezing rooms
- sanitary rooms
- delivery area
- serving area
The floor coverings available here – especially the porcelain stoneware – meet and exceed the legal requirements and ordinances that regulate exactly how commercial kitchens must be designed. Requirements can be found in BGR I 12, Arbeitsstätten-Richtlinie (ASR 8/1), Arbeitssicherheitsinformation (ASI 4.40), the Lebensmittel- und Bedarfsgegenständegesetz (LMBG), the Berufsgenossenschaftlichen Regel für Sicherheit und Gesundheit bei Arbeit für kontaminierte Bereiche (BGR 128), the Lebensmittelhygiene-Verordnung (LMHV). The requirements apply, for example, to canteen kitchens:
- Durability and slip resistance
- Extreme hardness to protect against splintering
- Easy to clean, waterproof surfaces
- Bacteria-repellent acid, alkali and fat resistance
- Hygienic and resilient floors for canteen kitchens
For you as the owner of a canteen kitchen, we recommend porcelain stoneware. It is fire-sealed, hard-wearing, easy to clean and provides complete slip resistance. Porcelain stoneware cannot be electrostatically charged. Heavy equipment leaves no traces on these floor tiles as they allow a high point load. Due to the hard and densely fired ceramic material, water can still penetrate the floor surface with oils, fats or acids, which prevents the colonisation of bacteria and makes cleaning child’s play.
The advantages of porcelain stoneware floors for canteen kitchens:
- Fast, precise and economical installation without joints
- Abrasion resistant
- Exceptional resilience
- Water-, acid- and chemical-resistant
- Optically appealing
