Kitchen Flooring Repair
Commercial kitchens have to be resistant in a demanding environment. The ﬂoor has to withstand impact from utensils, constant trolley wheeled trafﬁc, chemical attack from food acid and cooking oils as well as thermal shock from hot water spills and washdown. In particular, kitchens in hospitals are in constant use so the ﬂoor has to be reliable as a surface to work on in this environment.
Graylands Hospital was faced with a signiﬁcant problem with their existing ﬂoor. The tiled ﬂoor from the original build was failing. Tiles were becoming dislodged and the grout was degrading causing operational hygiene and safety issues.
The client wanted to refurbish the ﬂoor with a seamless durable ﬂoor that had a proven history in the food industry.
After consideration of all the options they selected Sikaﬂoor PurCem system.
PurCem is a seamless polyurethane/cement based ﬂoor that is resistant to all of the above mentioned. As well as being fast to install, it is low in VOC (Volatile Organic Compound) being water based and suitable around foodstuff and is a food grade system.
Antiskid Industries were the recommended contractor for the project. The ﬂoor was installed in stages to minimise disruption to the production of the kitchen.
The result is a sound, tough, seamless ﬂoor that has been in operation for 3 years without any signs of damage and is expected this will still be the case for many years to come.
Graylands Hospital management are now able to focus on the tasks of providing vital services to patients and not worry about problems related to a failing ﬂoor in the kitchen.
