Bannister Downs Dairy have chosen Flowfresh SR from Flowcrete to provide the 2350m of hygienic and on-brand flooring at their award-winning creamery in Australia.
In the pursuit of excellence, every aspect of the facility was carefully planned and considered from the ground up. To ensure that the creamery maintained unrivalled hygiene, the hard-wearing, chemical resistant polyurethane resin system Flowfresh SR was installed.
Thanks to its high level of chemical resistance, Flowfresh SR was ideal for the silo area, kitchen, processing, mixing, ingredients and filling rooms, where there would be a high chance of spillage.
The polyurethane resin system is resistant to temperatures from -15 °C to 90 °C, meaning that there would be no risk of floor failure in the working cool room, freezer, cool storage room and ambi chamber areas of the facility.
A high chemical resistance was imperative to Bannister Downs Dairy. The lactose in dairy can be corrosive to a floor’s coating if there is daily exposure. Strong chemical cleaners used to wash away spillages of this nature can have a similarly corrosive effect on the floor if the correct properties are not specified.
The durability and abrasion resistance of Flowfresh SR was extremely important in the dry store, carton room and loading dock, where packaged produce would be stored, transported and loaded onto distribution vehicles.
The coving used in the Creamery, combined with the seamless, impervious Flowfresh SR finish, ensures that any spilled produce is quickly and easily cleaned away. This ensures that there are no gaps for bacteria to reside, grow and multiply.
To enhance the hygiene of this system further, Flowfresh SR contains Polygiene®, an antibacterial additive that can eliminate up to 99.9% of bacteria on the floor’s surface when combined with a regular cleaning regime.
With frequent, in-depth cleaning being necessary in such an environment, the slip resistance of Flowfresh SR helps to maintain a safe environment at all times.
Flowcrete was also able to supply custom colours for the facility. Light grey, blue, cream and powder blue were used to provide a clean, fresh aesthetic that mirrored Bannister Downs Dairy’s branding.
