The bread factory, conveyer oven bakeries, the oven, with the floor as the centre of logistics. Dough mixers, floor sheets to narrow the differences in temperature. The fresh bakeries. Traditional, where pastries are still made by hand and the baker bakes fresh rolls at four in the morning. Flour, grain. Sugars, glucose, cocoa butter, cream. Big or small; every baker his own working space, his own kitchen, his own flooring.
Expert knowledge of flooring materials and their application brings Bolidt into contact with:
Flour, grain, animal and vegetable fats, lactic acid, whipped cream, almond pasta, cocoa butter they all affect on the floor. The companies in the bakeries/sweets sector represent a wide range of products. Cornflakes and crackers, instant food, rusks and toast, crisps, snacks and mini toasts, milk powders, pudding, soup, herbs, spices, chocolate, liquorice and sweets.
Oils, fats and syrups have to be taken into account. These soon make a floor slippery. Sugar attacks the concrete. The floor finish must not absorb moisture nor allow it to penetrate; it has to be impermeable. Drains, gutters and grid must be perfectly sealed off all around. Skirting boards incorporated 'seamlessly' into the floor. The manufactures using traditional methods have their own specific requirements where floors are concerned. Less automation, lighter equipment, different products. No conveyor belts, more manual work. They have the same requirements as far as safety and hygiene are concerned. Non-slip floors, seamless, low-maintenance, durable. Floor finishes that comply with most stringent requirements within the food industry, taking into account the standards of the authorities who monitor hygiene, safety and quality, anticipating the HACCP management.
For every question, a specific floor solution.
