Service Foods Production Facility

2019

Installation of food-grade hygienic flooring systems within the new Service Foods production and distribution facility at 221 Ihumatao Road, Mangere.

OVERVIEW

Solid Floors worked with Stan Balar, the managing director of Service Foods, to design, specify and install a heavy-duty flooring system to meet the required food grade standards.

Service Foods production facility has multiple food handling and preparation areas, with a butchery, chicken and fish preparation areas and dry goods manufacturing, providing world-class produce to restaurants and cafes throughout NZ. This created the requirement for a flooring system that would handle the demands of each unique area while handling the wear and tear of a harsh environment from such a large-scale operation.

Solid Floors partnered with Flowcrete for this project, choosing their Polyurethane Concrete System SR6 – a 6mm topping, for the flooring installation throughout the production areas. Flowfresh SR6 was selected due to it’s anti-microbial properties, alongside it’s durability, toughness and ability to withstand the heavy wear and tear of this type of production facility.

Flowcoat UV paint system was the coating of choice for the auxiliary areas, offering an aesthetic, durable painted system that looks good and handles heavy foot traffic.

Solid Floors also sealed all the internal concrete with Protec-crete X550 Warehouse concrete treatment system. X550 not only offers the benefits of sealing the concrete but densifies the surface and adds to the slip and stain resistance of the finish, making it ideal for heavy forklift traffic.
