South Island Surfaces specializes in flooring solutions for the food and beverage industry
Our full range of epoxy and polyurethane flooring solutions are specifically engineered for the environments and installation challenges of the food industry sector such as exposure to a wire range of corrosive materials and food contaminants such as hot oil, sugars, natural food acids, fat and grease to name a few.
To combat the danger of unchecked bacterial growth, be considered easy to maintain and clean, and be approved as safe for food production, food industry flooring solutions must adhere to strict health and safety guidelines.
Also each specific sector in the food industry has unique flooring requirements:
Bakeries require floor coatings that are resistant to the corrosive effects of sugars left on the surface.
Dairies require flooring solutions that can stand up to a constant cycle of rigorous cleaning regimens required by wet/dry manufacturing processes.
Fruit & Vegetable Processing
Fruit / Vegetable Processing floors must be able to withstand high traffic volume, thermal shock and high temperatures and have a surface that doesn't succumb to destruction from acids, sugars, and preservatives.
Blending & Bottling
Blending/Bottling facilities require floor surfaces that can stand up to the daily rigours of heavy equipment traffic.
Meat & Fish Processing Plants
Meat/Fish Processing facilities have extreme requirements for added hygiene protection, slip and fall resistance yet must be resistant to blood, oil and grease contaminents, all while being able to withstand the harshest cleaning cycles.
Corner Stores & Snack Foods
Snack Foods require slip-resistant floor surfaces to prevent injuries.
Freezers & Cold Storage
Freezer / Cold Storage floors need to install quickly at low temperatures and stand up to moisture, in turn reducing down time for the business.
