Key Points

Hygienic flooring

A resin floor creates a surface which is durable as well as being easy to clean and sanitise. Resin flooring also has other properties depending on the product which is installed, these can be different levels of chemical resistance as well as different levels of slip resistance

Added features such as resin skirting provides a curved junction between wall and floor preventing a build up of dirt, dust and bacteria. A seamless resin coating means that nothing can get trapped between any seals or gaps in the floor like with wood and tiles. This creates a more hygienic floor which is perfect for areas which handle food and drink or where high sanitation is needed like within healthcare facilities. 

Areas such as doctors surgeries, hospitals and dentists need to conform to a high level of hygiene standards which is why a resin floor needs or any surface needs to help make these standards easier to maintain.  

The most commonly used resin within healthcare flooring is polyurethane. This resin offers a high level of chemical resistance as well as being easy to clean, sanitise and maintain. 

Within education buildings an easy to clean floor with anti slip properties means a safer surface to walk on. School flooring is one of the main areas where busy footfall is constant and safety is high priority. Our Monarflake system has non slip properties which can be installed on stairs, corridors, halls and entrances where slips may occur. 

In instances where cleanliness is key to a business, we can install a high-quality hygienic resin flooring solution. This can range from factories which handle food or drink, to pharmacies and beauticians. 

Our floors can also be customised to fit in with your personal appearance and suit the image of your company. Seamless resin coatings can comes in a variety of colours, systems such as Monarquartz and Monarflake are highly customisable with thousands of possible colour combinations to choose from. 

Resin flooring is a very hygienic solution to any environment and it can really add a clean, smooth look to your floor. We install these systems as retail flooring, commercial kitchen flooring and for industrial and manufacturing floors. Monarch has been creating hygienic resin flooring systems for the past 30 years and bring that experience to every job we take on.

Examples of installed hygienic resin flooring systems


An example of a hygienic flake finish floor would be a project Monarch completed in a secondary school in Greater Manchester. This epoxy system was chosen as it creates a durable, seamless resin system which also has a decorative appearance. The blend of flakes used was designed utilising different shades of grey, white and black flakes, however, as you can see in detail on the decorative flooring page there is an unlimited range of colours and mixes which you can use to add your own personal branding/style. This hygienic system is easy to clean, sanitise and maintain which is perfect for situations where there is high amounts of pedestrian traffic. 

Food and drink factories

Another example of hygienic resin systems is within food and drink factorines. Pictured is a food factory which deals in the preparation of bacon. The resin floor which has been laid is hygienic so will be easily cleanable, anti-slip and can withstand the wear of forklift and pallet traffic. The colouring is a Salsa Red, this is a practical colour which matches the companies branding/product.

Food Grade Resin Flooring

As you can see from the examples there are many different styles and blends we can use to create a resin floor which suits your needs. Whether it be a smooth finish with circular detail for that professional look in a beautician, a flake finish to create a certain style with colour blends (glitter is also optional) or whether it is a food factory floor which needs to be hard wearing and practical.
