Abrasion and Impact Resistant
Granular ingredients such as salt, sugar, spices, and whole grain flour are abrasive in nature and can cause abrasion under foot or equipment traffic. Dishes, knives, pots and pans as well as other kitchen tools can gall on the floor.
All these can cause damage to commercial kitchen floors. Epoxy floor coatings are durable, strong and high performing thus able to withstand these conditions without damaging the floor.
Resistant to Thermal Shock
Commercial kitchen floors should be able to survive abrupt changes in temperatures between the cold walk-in freezers and intense heat of all the cooking equipment, dishwashing equipment as well as steam and/or hot sprays.
Epoxy commercial kitchen floors will not react to extreme temperature changes. It will therefore not expand and contract to create loose or moving areas which can serve as hiding places of microbes. This is so because epoxy floor coating is resistant to thermal shock.
Easy to Clean and Maintain
Cleaning and maintaining commercial kitchen floors can get to be difficult and challenging. Being resistant to chemicals, epoxy coating is easy to clean by simply wiping off spills or a thorough cleaning with warm water and soap.
Epoxy commercial kitchen floors can deal with all these without causing damage to the floor.
Commercial kitchen floors must be able to withstand exposure to extreme temperatures. Fryers, ovens and broilers can spill extremely hot oil and grease on the floor. Hot boiling water can spill on the floor.
