Ultrasyntec Ensures No Slip-Ups In Installation Of Smart Surface For High-Tech Food Plant
Ultrasyntec laid a hygienic, resilient floor built to withstand the long-term rigours of an industrial, state-of-the-art food production plant.
Ultrasyntec, in conjunction with Sikafloor, was tasked with installing a new surface at the Cardium Products food processing facility in Ilkley. For the clients, a smooth, hard-wearing floor, capable of resisting heavy loading, abrasion and chemical exposure was of the highest-priority. Sikafloor 20 PurCem more than met the requirements.
Sikafloor 20 PurCem, a polyurethane modified-screed, was required to cover a 1,562m2 floor space. The three-part, resin-rich material was applied to a 9mm thickness across the entire area. Sikafloor 20 PurCem features a textured, aggregate, non-slip surface, making it ideal for an environment such as a food production plant where the presence of heavy machinery, high-footfall and hot substances present a substantial health and safety risk.
“Sikafloor 20 PurCem does what it says on the tin. It creates a hygiene-yet-resilient floor which stands-up to daily wear-and-tear, and everything a heavy-industrialised area has to offer. It’s also quick-and-easy to apply, which is why we were able to supply, a smooth, hard-wearing, smart-looking floor for Cardium Products in just three weeks.”
William Hoyle, Director at Ultrasyntec
Stainless steel drainage was installed at intervals throughout the plant to collect excess water used during its daily ‘clean-down’. The addition of polyurethane coved skirting provided an aesthetically-pleasing detail to the floor system.
To ensure the floor was completed prior to other trades commencing, UltraSyntec installation teams were presented with a strict, three-week timeframe. Much to the client’s delight, we were able to provide Cardium Products with a tough, smart, slip-resistant surface floor well within the agreed deadline.
