In food and drink factories, hygiene and cleaning is an important factor when manufacturing, processing, packaging and distributing quality products, daily. With various processing areas in a factory it is imperative that the construction of the factory will not impede production or fail due to impact or wear.
Recently, Aspen Stainless were commissioned to install their UK exclusive range of PolySto hygienic wall kerbing throughout a food factory. Being manufactured from very strong polymer composite with a smooth, natural grey finish, the kerbing is designed to reduce the ingress of liquids and provide protection to walls, columns and door edges, from the floor level.
Once installed, the wall kerb was sealed with a high quality, silicone based, food safe joint sealant containing a special fungicide to prevent bacteria and fungi build up. The high strength formula is ideal for food environments due to its high humidity and temperature resistant attributes.
Accompanied by stainless steel wall cladding for the doors, the PolySto wall kerb now provides a completely sealed and hygienic surface between the walls and floor, and provides added protection and support to the walls, from daily factory traffic and potential loading bay collisions.
With strict demands for hygienic plant and equipment in all food and drink industries, Aspen has the ability to provide a tailored product package to meet your specialist requirements using its range of drainage, wall kerbing, and protection.
