Ceramic floors for fish and meat processing
Food processing companies that work with fish and meat are subject to particularly strict regulations with regard to soil conditions, which are laid down in the regulations on food hygiene, meat regulations and workplace safety. Blood, fat, fish and meat residues and similar substances get onto the floor and, together with the chemical cleaners, become a stress test for the floor covering. Normal floors cannot withstand these high stresses. 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 the meat and fish processing industry, which can be used in all areas of a company, such as:
- 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 exactly regulate for fish and meat processing companies 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 der 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 fish and meat processing plants
For you as a butcher, master butcher and owner of a fish and meat processing company, porcelain stoneware is recommended. It is fire-retardant, 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 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 industrial floors for fish and meat processing:
- Fast, precise and economical installation without joints
- Abrasion resistant
- Exceptional resilience
- Water-, acid- and chemical-resistant
- Optically appealing
