Simply Essentials’ produces a variety of protein products consumed across the country. It’s famous for high quality meat without growth stimulants, hormones or other additives. With these strict food standards set in place, it is easy to see that their processing facility must meet high standards too. Food facilities must be treated different than many standard floor applications since processing plants adhere to strict guidelines set by the USDA. Hot oils, natural food acids, and blood create a breeding ground for bacteria if not properly cleaned. Additionally, the floor in processing environments needs to withstand thermal shock, provide traction in wet areas and prevent ponding water.Treadwell Solution
Treadwell installed a heavy duty slip resistant cementitious urethane coating. It’s a durable and seamless floor that provides resistance against harsh cleaning and is tough enough to withstand heavy machinery and thermal shock. With the employee’s safety in mind, we also incorporated alum oxide for slip resistance in the facility’s wet environment. Lastly, Treadwell sloped the floors to the drains; this provided an effective solution to eliminate areas that could harbor standing water and bacteria.Benefits
Seamless cementitious urethane is a sanitary, durable floor coating that’s ideal for the Industrial market. It won’t crack, split, or separate from the concrete, and with no seams, there’s nowhere for bacteria to take up residence. In addition to being beautiful and hardwearing, cementitious flooring expands and contracts with the concrete during temperature changes, making it impervious to thermal shock. Last but not least, this low-maintenance flooring is available in your choice of standard or custom colors.
