Cleanliness and functionality are characteristics required in dairies: let’s see why
Anyone who has entered a dairy has been able to appreciate the hygiene care that exists in every room, starting right from the flooring.
In fact, the milk processing industry needs work areas where maximum hygiene and surface performance is ensured: it becomes so important to choose the most suitable floor.
Usually the choice falls on either a klinker or resin flooring.
But what are the differences between the two types of floors and above all why a resin one is more advantageous?
It is undeniable that klinker has very good mechanical characteristics but the choice of a resin flooring is more suitable for several reasons: let’s see which ones.
– There are no leaks so greater hygiene is offered
– Being a continuous flooring, dirt will not have a chance to nest and maintaining it is easier
– Restoring a resin floor is very simple and fast as it can be grouted
– The noise caused by trolleys or forklifts is very close to zero
– Resists the percolation of whey
– The same material can be used to cover the walls
These are purely functional aspects but a resin floor also offers aesthetic advantages.
In fact, there are many companies that open their doors to the public to show the places of processing and organize product tastings.
The resin floor is the only one that manages to combine functionality and aesthetics.
It should not be forgotten, then, how broken or cracked tiles produce an infiltration and stagnation of liquids.
This in the dairy industry gives rise to the lifting of flooring with the consequent need for replacement as well as situations of bacterial contamination to the detriment of the products.
