Ceramic floors for dairies
Food processing companies working with animal products such as dairy products are subject to particularly strict regulations regarding soil conditions, which are laid down in the regulations on food hygiene and workplace safety, among other things. Milk and other substances are deposited on the floor in dairy plants and, together with the chemical cleaners, are used as a stress test for the floor covering. Normal floors cannot withstand 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 cannot withstand heavy loads from machines, trolleys and pallet trucks. Here you get the ideal floor for dairies, which can be used in all areas of a business, such as:
- Delivery area
- processing rooms
- packaging rooms
- Refrigeration and freezing rooms
- sanitary rooms
The floor coverings available here – in particular our porcelain stoneware – meet and exceed the legal requirements and ordinances, which regulate exactly for dairies how these must be made. Requirements can be found in BauA – Technischer Arbeitsschutz ASR A1, 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). Examples are required:
- 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 dairies
For you as a dairy owner, porcelain stoneware is recommended. It is fire-sealed, hard-wearing, easy to clean and provides full 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, milk, water, oils, fats or acids can still penetrate the floor surface, which prevents the colonisation of bacteria and makes cleaning child’s play.
The advantages of industrial floors for dairies:
- Fast, precise and economical installation without joints
- Abrasion resistant
- Exceptional resilience
- Water-, acid- and chemical-resistant
- Optically appealing
