Bakhresa Specifies Flowcrete for Flour Mill Renovation

The USD800 million food producer Bakhresa Group recently specified a combination of high performance resin flooring solutions from Flowcrete South Africa as part of a renovation project to turn an ageing facility in Durban into a state-of-the-art flour mill.

The resilient, self-smoothing epoxy flooring system Flowshield SL was applied within the mill’s critical production area. The ability of Flowshield SL to withstand high mechanical and chemical stress made it the perfect fit for this part of the site, as it will be able to maintain a seamless finish in the face of Bakhresa’s busy daily workload.

The epoxy resin finish Flowshield SL 1000 was used for the non-critical areas, such as the warehouse, packaging and logistics spaces. This system was suitable as it would provide the same hygienic and aesthetic properties as the production room floor but it would not have to endure such rigorous conditions.

In total, 11,000m2 of resin materials were required to bring the facility’s floor up to the necessary standard. Flowcrete South Africa supplied the systems in a custom Sand Yellow colour in order to meet the client’s aesthetic requirements.

Bakhresa chose Flowcrete for the project as it was aware that the resin specialist had supplied a long list of food and beverage producers with floors designed to overcome the industry’s specific challenges.     

As well as being able to provide floors that met Bakhresa’s practical demands, Flowcrete South Africa was the only manufacturer that was able to deliver the materials quickly enough to meet the renovation’s strict deadline.
