Albany Bakeries

Fresh Floor Finish for New Look Commercial Bakery

Playing its part in a major refurbishment project, Flowcrete South Africa has delivered a fresh flooring solution for Albany Bakeries - at the company's production facility in Pietermaritzburg.

The company, which forms part of the Tiger Brands, is one of South Africa's largest manufacturers of bread and other baked goods, with 13 regional production sites supplying direct to supermarkets across the country.

Following significant damage to the existing floor finish resulting from movement in the concrete substrate as well as fire damage in one area of the plant, the entire 3,000 square metre site required a complete renovation to all interiors - including the floor space.

Looking not only to achieve a seamless, non-slip finish, Albany Bakeries required a flooring product that would positively help its cleaning regime; a steam-cleanable, heavy-duty material with a hygiene profile boosted by the inclusion of an antimicrobial agent within the polyurethane resin mix.

After having approached Flowcrete South Africa - a market leading manufacturer of high quality resin floor and wall coating systems - Albany Bakeries selected a seamless polyurethane resin system, Flowfresh SR, in an eye-catching yellow ochre colour.

The system, which offers complete protection against SARS, E-coli, MRSA, C.diificile and Salmonella typhi amongst others, has been proven to deliver a 99.9% reduction in the bacterial population of a typical floor - a protection, which remains active for the lifetime of the floor, even if worn or damaged.
