Keeping a workspace clean and hygienic is crucial in food processing plants. Designers should prioritize smooth, consistent surfaces that promote quick and easy cleaning as well as thorough disinfection.

Traditional tile, epoxy and beveled surfaces can prove difficult to clean, and harbor harmful bacteria and contaminants within gaps and porous grout. Flooring solutions that utilize heat-welded seams prevent bacteria from evading routine maintenance and potentially contaminating product. Altro’s vinyl sheet flooring and wall cladding ranges are joined via heat-welded seams to create a secure, watertight seal that prevents bacteria accumulation as well as excess moisture seeping below the surface.

It is important to note that insufficient drainage can also compromise a hygienic environment. For example, meat-processing plants without access to proper drainage require additional effort to clean and effectively sanitize. Drain layout and dispersal in relation to flooring needs to be considered when designing for commercial food production.

Altro sheet vinyl flooring can adapt to be flush with any existing round drain for a watertight seal without hindering drainage. Click here for more information on our floor drain solutions and Altro drain strainer covers.
