Commercial Kitchen Flooring - Pumadur HF - Practical, Safe & Hygienic

We are increasingly renewing commercial kitchen flooring as a result of problematical vinyl or tiled flooring issues.

In the case of vinyl flooring this often involves welded joints that have failed and are allowing water and food particles to penetrate under the kitchen flooring resulting in blistering and hygiene issues.

The solution is to remove the vinyl, scarify the exposed concrete and overlay with Pumadur HF food safe polyurethane resin floor screed which is ideally suited to the rigours of commercial kitchen flooring.

Similar issues arise with broken or cracked tiles often exacerbated by breakdown of the grout between the tiles. In the case of the floor tiles, subject to them being solidly bonded, they can be mechanically prepared by diamond grinding and overlaid with Pumadur HF polyurethane resin food grade flooring.

BS 8204-6 classifies Pumadur HF as a Type 8 (very heavy duty floor finish) and recommends it for floors that are to be subjected to severe heavily loaded traffic and impact - an anticipated lifespan in excess of 15 years or more should be anticipated in a commercial kitchen.

Polyurethane resin flooring technology was developed and patented by ICI in the 1960's to cope with the harsh demands experienced in chemical and petro-chemical facilities, typically these being abrasion, impact, acids, alkalis and solvents often combined with heat and constantly wet environments.

It was quickly appreciated that the properties exhbited to cope with these harsh conditions made the technology ideally suited for installation into food manufacturing, preparation and cooking environments.

Pumadur HF and other polyurethane resin floor screeds are often referred to as food grade or food safe floor finishes with most of the resin flooring manufacturers having had their systems tested and verfied by independant bodies such as the Campden & Chorleywood Food Research Association.

A typical commercial kitchen flooring project in the order of 40m2 - 80m2 in size is generally a 2-3 day process subject to unlimited working hours on day one. A recent project was programmed as follows:

Sunday Midnight - client strips out kitchen including all plumbing and electrics

Monday 8:00am - vinyl removed, floor prepared, screed laid - completion 9:00pm

Tuesday 2:00pm - resin skirting fitted - completion 6:00pm

Wednesday 6:00am - client re-establishes kitchen in readiness for lunchtime opening

Internal coved (rounded) skirtings are another feature to consider. When we install your new kitchen floor we can continue the flooring right up the walls, typically about four inches. This is referred to as an internal coved or radius skirting and eliminates the right angled hard edge where the new floor meets the wall preventing the build up of dirt and making the whole floor much easier to clean.
