A Milwaukee, WI Brewery was ready to install a new, high performance kitchen flooring system. From an industry installation perspective, breweries, kitchens and food processing facilities have one of the most important and challenging flooring systems.
Brewery floors take a lot of mechanical abuse and a lot of chemical abuse and this Milwaukee, WI concrete floor was no different.
Breweries, kitchens and food processing floors must be:
- High traction
- Easy to clean
- Withstand heavy abuse
- Chemical abuse
- Low temperatures (freezers/coolers)
- High temperatures (ovens/stoves)
- Thermal shock
- Mechanical abuse
- Bacterial resistant environment
- Completely seamless
The product that best fits these performance characteristics is a urethane modified cement flooring with a troweled vertical cove. A urethane modified cement system helps the food service vendor meet all the requirements and have a high performance floor that will exceed any other floor systems in the food processing industry.
Urethane Modified Cement floors are superior to:
- Dairy tile
It’s not advisable to have a permeable system where any production of beer brewing, food/beverage products for human consumption is being manufactured; a non-permeable, non-porous surface is desired/required for food and beverage processing floors and a UMC system is engineered specifically for this purpose:
- Easy to clean
- Does not promote bacterial growth
- High traction under wet conditions
- High temperature tolerant
- Low temperature tolerant
- Impact resistant
- Thermal shock resistant
- Cove system to create secondary containment of the space
- Chemically resistant
This Milwaukee, Wisconsin Brewing facility now has a concrete coated flooring system will provide the client with a durable, high performing, seamless floor that meets the demanding challenges of breweries, kitchen and food processing facilities.
