Food Grade Floors for Abattoirs & Meat Processing Facilities

Lincolnshire Abattoir & Meat Processing Floor

Abattoirs & Meat Processing Plants

Abattoirs & meat processing facilities provide some of the most challenging environments for unprotected concrete flooring.

Specific requirements in these environments are:

The floor must be capable of being thoroughly de-greased, cleaned and sanitised

It has to be resistant to a range of chemicals

The floor finish requires high compressive and flexural strengths to withstand heavy loads and abrasion while maintaining a safe working substrate for foot and wheeled traffic

The floor finish should have anti-slip properties in both wet and dry conditions

The floor finish should not support to the growth of bacteria

Floors may be constantly wet or immersed in water or water slurries of animal waste, blood, fat, and other by-products.

Meat processing areas may include cooking operations that can be subject to significant temperature variations.

Cleaning and sanitising operations can subject the floor to significant thermal cycling.

Owing to their effectiveness on grease, oil, and other organic matter, strong chemical cleaners may well be used.

Pressurised steam cleaning can subject the floor to thermal shock and cause surface spalling in unprotected concrete.

Owing to their acidic nature, animal fat and proteins will attack unprotected concrete by reacting with the alkaline cement paste that binds the concrete together thus weakening it and making it more susceptible to damage from impact, abrasion, thermal cycling, and further chemical attack.

Processing floors can present slip hazards. They are often wet or damp, and animal fats or oils may be present.

Operatives must have secure footing, particularly when working around hazardous equipment and/or heavy moving loads.

Process plant floors, paticularly abattoirs, are subjected to heavy forklift and pallet trucks. Much of the mechanical damage that occurs on the floor is adjacent to the floor joints, due mainly to impact resulting from solid wheeled vehicles.

Polyurethane resin floor systems are highly recommended in abbattoir and meat processing plants.

Polyurethane resin flooring technology was developed and patented by ICI in the 1960's and is ideally suited for installation into wet food environments. They are often referred to as food grade or food safe floor finishes with most of the manufacturers having had their systems tested and verfied by independant bodies such as the Campden & Chorleywood Food Research Association.

They cure quickly in the cool and damp conditions typical of abbatoir and meat processing plants, provide excellent chemical resistance and can withstand organic acids and common cleaning chemicals.

Polyurethane resin floors are extremely hard wearing with excellent impact and abrasion resistant properties and are impervious and non-porous.

For many years polyurethane resin flooring systems have demonstrated excellent performance in wet food processing environments and in areas subject to severe thermal cycling, especially within the harsh conditions often present in abattoir and meat processing facilities.

Polyurethane resin floor screeds can be subjected to high temperatures and steam cleaning so offer first class performance in these aggressive environments.

BS8204-6 categorises these floors as Type 8 (highest rating) and suitable for use in very heavy duty working environments with an anticipated life span of 10-12 years.
