No matter what type of food or beverage facility you operate, you understand how critical it is to have safe, slip-resistant, and durable flooring. In addition to workplace falls, foodservice operators must also consider food safety guidelines.
Many facility operators ask us about “food-grade epoxy” flooring. These surfaces have seams and grout lines that can harbor bacteria and foodborne illnesses and may not withstand the impact of heavy equipment and machinery. Additionally, frequent cleaning with harsh chemicals can damage their appearance.
A food-safe alternative to food-grade epoxy
Luckily, there’s an alternative. We recommend urethane concrete when a facility operator requires a longer-lasting and food-safe flooring option. We ensure your flooring meets all OSHA, USDA, and FDA guidelines and provides a seamless, protective, hygienic coating that resists contamination from food, blood, grease, oil, and acidic substances. The texture helps prevent slips, trips, and falls, and a topcoat containing coarse particles can provide additional slip resistance.
