Designed to target the Middle East food market, Bakers Circle’s new site will be supplying well-known brands and high profile food outlets around the region. This meant that the facility had to comply with the highest standards of hygiene, efficiency and productivity.
A key part of this was installing floors that would facilitate a clean and safe working environment while simultaneously withstanding the specific challenges within each area of the site. To achieve this a range of high performance resin flooring systems were applied.
The processing activity activity takes place on top of 500m2 of the robust, self-smoothing resin system Flowshield SL, which has been designed to withstand the foot traffic, cleaning, impacts and spillages that the floor will inevitably experience in such an environment.
Two antimicrobial enhanced, HACCP International Certified, polyurethane systems were also utilised. 300m2 of Flowfresh RT was installed in the freezer, as it would be able to retain a seamless surface despite a constant room temperature of -20°C. The storage area was coated with 300m2 of Flowfresh MF to survive heavily laden pallets as well as traffic from staff and forklift trucks for an extended period of time.
To assist navigation and help avoid cross contamination, different colours were used to designate the various areas of the site. The Flowshield SL in the processing area is a bright light blue while an earthen orange was used in the storage area and a signal green surface was applied in the freezer.
