John L Lord were chosen for the manufacture and installation of over 1000m2 of Uragard HT120W to their clients’ canteen, toilets, shower rooms, changing rooms, engineers workshop and laundry areas.
The client wanted to include the same quality hygienic floor to their large staff changing and amenities building. Having tried various flooring options in the past, the customer realised the importance of a flooring with a seamless surface, which can prevent any build-up of bacteria, dust and debris in hard to clean places. Therefore a high standard of cleanliness to prevent the spread of bacteria and viruses is not in their food process areas but also in areas on the outside of processing.
Uragard HT120W is part of the John L Lord’s HT Range of heavy duty, high performance and anti-slip polyurethane screed. Uragard HT120W is an independently tested slip-resistant screed, designed to provide safety under food and improve clean ability.
The addition of BioCote and its high hygienic attributes means our Uragard resin flooring can also be antimicrobial.
Different grades of flooring are required for the different areas found within the food processing environments.
Production areas need a hard-wearing, chemical resistant floor finish, which is able to stand up to heavy machinery and general wear and tear. Wet and dry processing areas need a floor that delivers a highly robust hygiene performance.
Changing rooms can be congested and hazardous environments that are prone to wear and tear. Ensuring a careful planning and the correct choice of flooring materials can benefit from excellent usability, maintenance can be reduced and accidents averted.
An antimicrobial resin floor is able to achieve up to a 99.99% bacteria reduction in just 2 hours on contact. This means the resin floor can resist the growth of microbes, including bacteria, mould and fungi, on its surface.
By having lower levels of microbes on a floor surface means improved hygiene, reductions in staining and odours, and a delay in degradation of materials. In summary, this can extend the functional lifetime of a resin floor.
