Resin as a brewery floor coating
Resin flooring systems are highly recommended for brewery floors owing to its physical and chemical properties.
As beer is acidic by nature, beer and spirits will attack concrete flooring by reacting to the alkaline cement paste. This creates a surface which is more susceptible to damage and causes the floor to become unsafe.
Unlike a concrete floor, a polyurethane brewery floor has a high level of resistance to chemicals within the brewing process. These chemicals attack a concrete surface and create an uneven, cracked floor leading to potential risk to workers. Polyurethane also has a greater resistance to organic acids which are common within the cleaning chemicals used on brewery flooring making them extremely hygienic.
As a result, polyurethane can provide a long-lasting, cost-effective flooring solution for breweries, microbreweries and distilleries.
Why choose Monarch for your brewery flooring needs
Monarch Flooring Services Limited has been involved in the design and application of seamless resin flooring in the brewery industry for many years and is a member of SIBA, the Society of Independent Brewers.
We know how essential it is to install the correct resin product which is tailor-made to each individual breweries needs.
When it comes to brewery flooring we know there are specific requirements which the floor will need to ensure that certain health and safety standards are met. This is why we install floors which can measure up to these standards.
Above all, we know it is essential in the design of a brewery that the correct resin product is selected. We have installed resin flooring in breweries throughout the UK and have over 30 years of experience.
The choice of Monarthane, a polyurethane floor product we install, applied in conjunction with a falling floor to a designed stainless steel drainage system will ensure a long lasting system.
It is important with brewery flooring that the floor meets the health and safety requirements which are necessary when dealing with certain hazardous environments.
Our polyurethane flooring systems are ideal when it comes to finding the right flooring solutions for brewery floors. This is due to their hygienic nature, visit our hygienic resin flooring page to find out more about these systems and their benefits.
Some resin floor coatings can be steam cleaned to 120 degrees when applied at an appropriate thickness which will kill any harmful bacteria but not affect the flooring system.
The chemical resistance of resin systems means that most cleaning chemicals will not affect the surface. As a result, it is easier to sanitise an area which deals with the production of beverages. Moreover, it means a greater health and safety.
Non slip flooring
Our anti slip/ non-slip flooring solutions are ideal when It comes to installing resin floors in environments which deal with any form of liquids or dampness.
It is essential that the resin floors we supply to breweries are slip resistant in both wet and dry environments so the floors meet health and safety requirements and create a safe working environment.
Along with the floors being anti slip our crease fall and drainage solutions make it even easier to create an environment which meets health and safety standards.
What specific resin products suit breweries
Monarthane is a three-part resin rich, heavy-duty polyurethane floor screed designed to present a floor surface resistant to chemical attack and the hardest physical abrasions.
Areas subject to abrasion, heavy wading, chemical exposure and areas where a slip-resistant, seamless, sealed profile is required. Due to these advantages and more, Monarthane is one of the leading polyurethane systems which we install. It is not just within breweries which this product can be used, there are many applications where Monarthane may be installed.
Typical Areas of Use:
- Food processing areas
- Engineering workshops
- Breweries / Pub cellars
- Chemical areas
In conclusion, it is clear that a resin system can be a better option than concrete when dealing with the chemicals within the brewing process. Moreover, concrete and other surfaces which become damaged by these chemicals will also become a hazard. Uneven floors with damage mean that any cracks and holes will only get bigger and be more hazardous. A polyurethane resin has high chemical resistance. This means that it is not affected in the same way by the chemicals as concrete. This, in turn, means that the floor will remain stable and the surface would not crumble.
Another example of resin flooring within the brewing industry is its versatility. We install resin systems with falling floors and with stainless steel drainage as required. As a result of this system, any liquids will fall towards the drain to create a surface which is less dangerous to workers.
