Fit Fresh specialises in fresh and sanitised salads, cut fruits, vegetables and fresh juices. Its list of clientele includes the catering divisions of Emirates Airlines and Qatar Airlines as well as fast food giants McDonalds and a number of high profile 5 star hotels and restaurants.
Fit Fresh needed a flooring system that could withstand the demands in its busy processing facility, such as regular forklift traffic and cold rooms kept at temperatures of around 5ºC.
Flowfresh MF, which contains the silver-ion based antimicrobial agent Polygiene® and kills 99.9% of all bacteria, was selected for the 7,000sqm factory’s cold storage and processing areas, where hygiene and chemical resistance are of paramount importance.
The heavy duty, chemical resistant, antimicrobial treated polyurethane resin floor finish is popular within the food and beverage industry as it delivers a smooth, matt coloured floor finish which is joint-free and easily-cleaned, attributes that made it ideal for Fit Fresh’s needs.
Coved skirting detail was also applied and drainage channels were incorporated within the finish. These are important flooring components for areas that will be exposed to regular wash-downs and spillages and which need to maintain a constantly high level of hygiene.
