HOW FLOORING CONTRIBUTES TO HYGIENIC BAKERIES

As with any industrial building, the main concerns when it comes to design include durability, mechanical resistance, and safety. However, when it comes to any industry dealing with food (especially bakeries!), hygiene becomes a high priority. Any discrepancy in cleanliness can cause the production process to come to an absolute halt. This is a disaster for a bakery and, thus, they take maximum measures to ensure ultimate hygiene.

 

The best way to do this is to eliminate the threat from the get go. This is where Bolidt comes in. Whilst certain elements are necessary to keep the area clean, they can also be the crux of hygiene. For instance, crucial aspects of a bakery, such as drainage, thresholds, skirting, and corners, are also an ideal living space for bacteria. Give them half a chance and they’ll be moving in with extended family. Our flooring is a polymer-based thermosetting synthetic. This means that it is liquid tight. It can be fitted to any space with perfection. Because of its seamless application, It's pore-free with no nooks and crannies for bacteria to nestle into. The specialization of floor and wall finishes means that gaps from wall to floor (along with germs) can be eliminated.

Bolidtop® 700: The perfect match

The Bolidtop® 700 flooring system meets all the hygiene requirements of the bakery trade, including food safety standards based on the HACCP principles. It has no seams or joints, it’s pore-tight, dirt repellent, and very easy to clean. Being resistant to heavy machinery, hot liquids, extremely cold liquids, and even acids, it’s the perfect match!

Coveted skirting

Coveted skirting replaces the need for any rigid edges around the parameters of a room. Bolidtop® 700 can be applied to avoid the existence of any 90° corners, reducing the risk of bacterial hideouts. This same curved finish can be applied all the way to the corners of the room, leaving no stone unturned.

Drainage systems

Whilst drainage systems are absolutely necessary, they invite all kinds of opportunities to bacteria. With Bolidtop® 700, drains can blend seamlessly into the flooring. This is only possible because of Bolidt’s thermosetting quality. Say goodbye to levelling tools, as Bolidtop® 700 self-levels. This means that the flooring is literally air-tight. From the guttering to the floor, there are absolutely no gaps.

Wear and tear

Not only are Bolidtop® flooring systems durable against heavy traffic and machinery, but also against bacteria. The high scratch resistance equates to a germ-free zone,

because a lack of scratches equals a lack of hiding places.

For these reasons, Bolidt flooring systems are often chosen within the baking industry. From Allemeersch bakery in Brussels, to Perfetti Van Melle, Bolidt is raising the bar for hygiene around the globe. Through continual innovation, Bolidt are providing the highest standards of hygiene possible.
