(Soft) drinks industry

Soft drinks, alcohol. Bottling plants. Internal transport: forklift trucks with cases full of (soft) drinks. Always accompanied by the chance of breakages. Glass. Splinters. Danger of skidding. Antiskid flooring. Resistant to acids, glucoses, vitamins. Transport by conveyer belt or rolling stock. Carts or crates. Internal transport over even floors. Dispatch areas from where wholesalers are supplied. And also hotels, restaurants, pubs. Working to capacity and against the clock, thus efficiency is essential. HACCP.

Expert knowledge of flooring materials and their application brings Bolidt into contact with:

Nestlé
Heineken
Coca Cola

Because the ‘wet’food industry is a broad concept; all sorts of soft drinks and fruit juices, spirits, liquors, wine and beer, in short, everything which eventually fulls the consumers’ glasses. In production areas the Bolidtop floors are resistant to sugars, acids, glucose, flavourings, … all additives. The Bolidtop floor is resistant to broken glass and it is impermeable to liquids. The anti-slip grip of the floor is geared to its use. Walking on it with boots, intensive loads from forklift trucks and pallets, it is slip-resistant where necessary.

The floors are naturally impermeable (to liquids) and do not absorb moisture. Drains, gutters and grids are perfectly sealed off all around, skirting boards are incorporated seamlessly into the floor. Dirt and bacteria have no chance to take hold. This is also in connection with the HACCP management. The production area makes other demands on the floor finish than the labelling department, the packaging department, the returned goods department and the dispatch department.Seamless floors on which forklift trucks can turn and brake. The load on the floor is extremely diverse; transport via the conveyor belt or via rolling equipment on wear-resistant and low-maintenance floors; use of packaging such as the PET bottle, which has made transport (the crate) less vulnerable and lighter. Crates being pushed along, the floor that is used as ‘conveyor belt’. This requires floors that can withstand rough treatment, have a long life span and require virtually no maintenance.

For every question, a specific floor solution.
