Bakery Resin Flooring, Norfolk


A section of floor within a busy bakery had become degraded and hard to clean. A durable resin flooring solution was required.

We proposed the application of an extremely durable 6mm polyurethane screed. Polyurethane screeds are the most commonly applied form of resin flooring within food production industries as there resin rich nature makes them extremely durable and impervious even if chipped or damaged.

They are also inherently slip resistant.

Initially all surfaces where the new resin flooring was to be applied was prepare by method of vacuum controlled scabbling to remove surface laitance, contaminants and to provide and excellent mechanical profile for the new resin flooring to adhere to.

To ensure that the new resin floor did not create a trip hazard, yet was applied to full thickness at the perimeter terminations rebates were cut and transitioned by vacuum controlled diamond grinding.

Anchor rebates were also cut using a vacuum controlled floor saw around and across the area where the polyurethane screed was to be installed. The resin for this is that as polyurethane screeds cure they ‘toast’ at the edges, meaning that they can lift away from the substrate if these anchor rebates are not correctly installed.

Once satisfied with the preparation the new resin flooring was installed by trowel to a thickness of 6mm. Polyurethane screeds can be installed at a thickness of 9mm when steam cleaning/hot washing is going to be undertaken.

All of the works were completed on a Saturday to ensure minimum disruption to the bakeries operations. The fast curing properties of polyurethane screeds meant that the area could be refitted and returned to service on Monday morning.
