COMMERCIAL KITCHEN FLOORS
The kitchen is notorious for being hot, wet, and potentially dangerous. It is not unusual to see chefs moving hot items in front and behind others; line cooks cutting and dicing with razor sharp knives; and cleaning teams using suds and oils that make things slippery. Each of these core functions needs to have the confidence to move about without worrying about slipping or damaging the floors.
A commercial kitchen floor that is properly installed is essential to ensuring that food is produced efficiently. The truth is, it is sometimes downweighted as a priority, and is addressed at the conclusion of a build in order to ensure compliance. Truth be told, if you are thinking ahead, you might spend less than you expect on your flooring and definitely save money in the medium and long term – not just in maintenance costs, but also with insurance.
Food safety standards such as HACCP, AQIS, BRC and ISO 9000 require hygienic and durable flooring solutions in commercial kitchens and food processing areas.
