Commercial Kitchen Epoxy Flooring

As Health and Safety Standards within a workplace increase particularly within industries around food handling, laws regarding the finishes required to operate within any given premises have increased. This includes the type of floor covering required by HACCP to be installed prior to food handling operations taking place.

With the increased standards for food handling premises and their governed finishes we understand how this impacts these businesses. An extended setting up period, whereby floors and walls are specifically crafted to meet requirements, can be draining on the new businesses beginning capital/ start up costs. As a new business you are needing to be focusing on the turning over of revenue, not where the flooring contractors are up to with the job and when HACCP has their initial inspection to certify the premise prior to operation. 

At Superior Concrete Finishes, we have made it our ultimate goal to be the market leaders within the epoxy flooring industry. Our expertise in these areas, particularly within commercial flooring ensure our clients of the timely and quality manner which all of our jobs are completed.
